Sweat is fat crying, according to Hot Yoga Barre’s website. And you can be sure there’s a lot of crying fat at its Willow Lawn studio. It’s the only yoga and barre space in Richmond heated with Far Infrared Radiant panels, which heats without forced, stuffy hot air and keeps that gym smell at bay. Barre instructor Kailey says the studio is a warm atmosphere both literally and metaphorically. “It’s a very welcoming environment,” she says, crediting that to its continued growth. Hot Yoga Barre is almost 2 years old and already plans to expand. “The heat adds a whole new dynamic to fitness you’re doing,” she says.
