For some, yoga is simply a workout routine to gain more strength and flexibility. For others, especially for those who master the techniques and different poses, it’s the SOL, the Secret Of Life. The studio’s name refers to how yoga helps people find a more balanced, connected, joyful and grateful being, both on and off the mat. SOL’s mantra is all about feeling good inside and out, which is why this Fort Lauderdale studio offers each of its classes in an infrared-heated studio, a kind of heat that penetrates beyond the skin, detoxicating the body of heavy metals while reducing aging and increasing mobility. Join SOL Flow to feel stretched, strengthened and connected or SOL Sculpt for a full body workout that uses your body weight to strengthen and tone.
