Yoga buffs looking for a true change of scenery, listen up. This Sunday, September 29th, the boys behind LA's premiere trippy sweat fest, AuraCycle, are opening a hot yoga studio at WeHo's Sunset Plaza.
Led by Aura's head honchos Jay Palau and Maurizio Pelone (aka one of this year's Hottest Trainer contestants), the progressive space features their signature ambient lighting system, with "wall that glow soothing colors during the class," they tell us. Instructors, like master yogi Jake Ferree, can control the colors and sounds customize each class.
Support is provided by Zebra Mats flooring, which offers "higher friction between the body and floor, enabling positions to be held longer with increased comfort." It all sounds very high-tech.
Want to give it a try? The first 500 new students to sign-up here score a free two-week trial when they use the code "TryHotBliss." You can also call the studio and mention the limited-edition deal.
