Sweat Yoga is opening soon in West Hollywood. After months of rumors that a kick-boxing gym was taking over the space of the old Los Angeles Sporting Club retail store, we can now reveal that Sweat Yoga is moving into the neighborhood at the beloved LASC location (we’re happy it’s not another nail salon). A rainbow-colored Sweat Yoga banner has gone up at 8592 Santa Monica Blvd and remodeling is well underway in the interior underneath the 24-Hour Fitness Sport gym.
Sweat yoga was founded in 2014. There are five locations currently open in Southern California that range from Santa Monica, Playa Vista, Westlake Village, and Little Tokyo. And now a West Hollywood location is underway. Classes at these locations recently opened in late June following the Los Angeles County’s green light to move forward on the roadmap to recovery during the COVID-19 by reopening key economic and community sectors that including day camps, spectator-free professional sports, museums, campgrounds and entertainment production and fitness centers.
Classes offer students an athletic style of yoga, a thorough sweat in a community of like-minded people. Teachers bring a positive attitude and a sweetness into the yoga room. Classes offer a break from monotonous poses and redundant vinyasas with creative sequencing and curated playlists that reflects each class’s unique vibe. The typical sweat class is heated to about 100 degrees and the temperature is adjusted to keep it comfortable throughout the class. They use high-tech heating system that constantly circulates warm UV filtered air into the room to keeps things fresh.
According to founder Tommy Schey, “Sweat Yoga is a reflection of my many thousands of hours in a yoga room, reflecting times when the experience hits on all cylinders – the right flow, the right dialogue, great music, and feeling part of the community in the yoga room. It’s an acknowledgement that I walk out of every yoga experience feeling better than when I walked in.”
More details coming soon.
