In the heart of the Valley—where else?—Joanna Meiseles is disrupting the traditional yoga practice.
Turbo 26 Studio is slated to open its first location at Stanford Shopping Center in mid-November. Its state-of-the-art climate control keeps the room between 98 and 100 degrees, with 30 percent humidity, allowing for a “healthy heat,” as Meiseles puts it.
The 26-minute, fast-flow yoga classes—which start every half hour all day—are designed to build internal heat and, as a result, improve stamina, strength, exibility and balance. No resting poses here, but the classes are geared toward all levels, from beginners to advanced yogis. At Turbo 26, movement leads to mindfulness.
