“Heat and humidity kill germs and viruses. Despite spreading events that have become common in gyms; there have been NO cases or spreading events linked to hot yoga studios in the City of Tulsa or Tulsa County, Oklahoma. The Safety recommendations to prevent spread of the virus followed by hot yoga studios mitigate spread allowing people to enjoy the health benefits of movement! The data is very clear that breathing, moving mindfully and sharing social connection in clean, distanced spaces are paramount to staying healthy during this pandemic.” – Dr. Bruce Dart
