The wait is over. Sweat Yoga WeHo is opening today. Grand opening classes begin this evening, Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 5:30pm and tomorrow Thursday, August 13, with open air rooftop classes on top of the parking lot of 8592 Santa Monica Boulevard (They’ve taken over the space of Los Angeles Sporting Club).
Sweat Yoga WeHo will continue a schedule of daily classes on its spacious rooftop for the remainder of the week. The rooftop can safely accommodate up to 50 yoga students per class. In accordance with COVID-19 safety protocols mandated by the City of Los Angeles and City of West Hollywood, Sweat Yoga will not yet be opening its indoor classes.
A press release states that in the age of the novel coronavirus pandemic and current ongoing social movements across America, Sweat Yoga prides its emphasis on BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ diversity and inclusion in its employees and members, forward thinking COVID-19 safety standards, equitable treatment of its instructors, and delivering the highest quality yoga experience in Los Angeles.
“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,” says Sweat Yoga Founder Tommy Schey. “It’s an acknowledgement that I walk out of every yoga experience feeling better than when I walked in.”
The grand opening classes will be taught by Schey.
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.
