Yoga with a touch of class

NORMAN — Audrey Hepburn may not be around to appreciate it, but Yoga at Tiffany’s Norman in Brookhaven Village, 3770 W. Robinson St., Suite 112, will be the first yoga studio to feature hot yoga as its primary specialty.

Owner and operator Catie Coon is an experienced teacher who is well known to many of Norman’s yogis. Coon’s schedule will include classes for beginners as well as intermediates and elite students.

Yoga at Tiffany’s uses a fresh air system to regulate the temperature and air flow at the studio.

“It oxygenates the air and regulates the carbon dioxide levels in the room so you’re never getting too much carbon dioxide,” Coon said. “It also maintains a humidity level. Humidity keeps the air fresh and it keeps the air moist. That’s what yoga is all about — breathing.”

The state-of-the-art Fresh Air System used by Yoga at Tiffany’s is manufactured by Hot Yoga Studio Supply and Design. It regulates carbon dioxide levels in the room by bringing in freshly oxygenated air and maintaining humidity at 40 percent.

Yoga at Tiffany’s is the only yoga studio in Oklahoma that offers the specialized technology.

“We’re the first yoga franchise in Oklahoma,” Coon said. “We’re still locally owned, but Tiffany Porte opened the studio in Oklahoma City, and she, as far as I know, was the first hot yoga studio to open in the area. That was in 2008.”

Now that concept is coming to Norman.

“The No. 1 most important benefit of hot yoga is that you are going to burn more calories,” Coon said. “You’re going to detox the body and expell toxins including environmental pollution, infection, chemical food additives and chronic tension created by emotional stress.”

Heat allows muscles to expand and stretch more safely and deeply.
