Golden Bridge Yoga opened their newest venture, Golden Bridge Hot Yoga (GB Hot Yoga), located upstairs from their flagship location in Hollywood. Offering students a powerful mixture of spirituality and sweat, Olivia Kvitne, the studio’s Yoga Coordinator adds, “We want to emphasize that both practices, Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan as well as heated classes, are important to a well-rounded yoga lifestyle. Our classes incorporate the principles and traditions of yoga into the heated room, instead of focusing purely on the workout.”
The classes at GB Hot Yoga vary from a joyful flow, a quick midday express flow, a “GB Foundations” class for newcomers, to a soothing evening candlelit yin. Olivia also created GB Hot, a signature set series that includes sun salutations, standing postures, balancing poses, hip openers, and twists before finishing with a calming savasana. While the sequence of GB Hot remains consistent, it simultaneously allows instructors to offer individual insights, or highlight different topics from day to day, accommodating students on their never-ending yoga journeys. With such a substantial foundation, both literally and figuratively, GB Hot Yoga looks forward to its exciting future, planning to offer day-long retreats for Angelenos that combine hot yoga classes, Kundalini workshops, and vegan meals which are already available on the breezy patio of the Nite Moon café.
Golden Bridge members can take hot yoga classes as part of their membership. Take advantage of the grand opening special: buy 10 classes and receive three free.
