Inferno Hot Pilates is a high intensity, low impact interval training based on the principles of Joseph Pilates (breath, centering, concentration, control, flow & precision) married with the genius of Izumi Tabata, the Japanese scientist who invented the concept of interval training. It is a perfect compliment to your Bikram Hot, Vinyasa, Yin & Unnata Aerial Yoga practice! We condition the room to 95 degrees so you'll still work up a sweat and build some serious gluts and abs. Many news sources are calling Inferno Hot Pilates the hottest new fitness trend because you get the fastest results in the shortest amount of time, only 1 hour!! Dewey, Kay, Pam, Coh, & Danielle recently attended the internationally recognized Inferno Hot Pilates teacher training and had the honor and privilege of training directly under Gabriella Walters, founder of Inferno Hot Pilates.We're soooo excited to bring it to Milledgeville, Ga!!!!!

Harmony Hot Vinyasa Yoga is a faster paced yoga flow where the postures are linked together in a series of movements that are synchronized with the breath. Much emphasis is placed on effective utilization of the breath as you transition into and out of the postures during the practice. The continuous movement from one pose to another, gives you an added cardiovascular benefit, which more traditional forms of yoga do not have. Since we practice Vinyasa Yoga at elevated temperatures, it is a much safer practice as the heat allows you go deeper into each posture with less risk of injury. The routine practice of Vinyasa Yoga can increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility, and reduce levels of stress. This is another great class for detoxification as well! Come Flow With Us!

Our Yin Yoga classes are unique every time and designed to stimulate circulation in the joints and improve overall flexibility by stretching and releasing connective tissues in the body. Yin yoga is also excellent for stress management. Whether you are taking a huge test at school or dealing with job related stress, Yin Yoga, taught only by Yin certified instructors, can truly help. Yin Yoga is a less intense and more meditative form of yoga that is taught in a relaxing low heat classroom environment. These 60 minute classes include a series of floor postures that are held in position for 3 to 5 minutes thereby allowing muscles to relax and connective tissue to gradually stretch. Come Stretch With Us!

NOW OFFERING AMAZING UNNATA AERIAL YOGA CLASSES! CLICK HERE TO RESERVE YOUR HAMMOCK!Unnata Aerial Yoga is a relatively new and fun practice that allows you to deepen your traditional yoga asana practice by using the hammock as a tool to relax, release, realign and rebuild the body. At Harmony Hot Yoga, Pilates and Aerial Center, we use only top quality professional grade Aerial Yoga Hammocks for this purpose. The hammock is used as a prop, like a block or strap, to help heighten awareness and provides the immediate benefit of spinal decompression. Once the body is properly realigned, you can expand your range of motion, increase your flexibility, release chronic tension and build strength. With the weight of the body partially or fully supported, along with the help of gravity, you can explore and create space in your bodies to improve your traditional yoga asana practice. Without the compression of the spine and joints, you can achieve properly aligned postures through relaxation rather than effort, therefore finding a more balanced and unencumbered expression of each pose. Our Certified Unnata Aerial Yoga instructors are trained to keep you safe and comfortable so that you can have awesome Unnata Aerial Yoga experience! Check out the video below and Come Fly With Us!!

Harmony Hot Yoga and Kay Forrester (the instructor) are absolutely amazing! I went there this past Saturday for the 9:30 class, and I wore my apple watch to see what kind of workout I was getting doing hot yoga. The results were incredible! In a 90 minute class, I burned 978 active calories with a total of 1,152 calories burned during the class. My average heart rate was 146 BPM! Typically, when I lift, my heart rate averages between 115-125. This truly is a great workout, and I would recommend it to anyone! You do not have to know anything about yoga to appreciate Kay’s class, and I feel confident she will work you as hard as you are willing to work, regardless of whether you are a novice or an expert yogi. Please give Harmony Hot Yoga a try!!! You will not regret it!
You would think that every class would be same as it is the same 26 postures done twice in the same exact order in 90 minutes every time, but that is not the case. The instructor is everything in Bikram yoga and Kay Forrester’s classes are the best! Kay brings the best energy to class every time she teaches. She is wonderful with new students and she also remembers to correct and give tips to those of us who have been practicing for some time. I have been practicing Bikram yoga for over 4 years now and Kay has helped my practice over the past year tremendously with her guidance and corrections to my postures. Kay delivers a positive, upbeat and energetic yoga class. If you can, you must take her class!
Kay brings an authenticity to the classroom that guides you through your practice in an inspiring, but not intimidating way. She has a presence of energy and kindness and her classes give you an incredible workout for your mind, body and spirit! I have really enjoyed her classes. Kay has just the right blend of energy, presence of encouragement without overpowering the practice and leaving space for self reflection. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone old or new to the practice of yoga!
One word I can use to describe Kay the instructor, “PASSION!” The moment she enters the room to start teaching, one can feel the energy. During the class, one can sense that her focus is totally on the students and helping them expand their own practice. I highly recommend taking Kay’s class as often as you can.
Kay combines infectious energy, warm southern charm, and a passion for yoga. Her classes are energetic, yet so much fun that it is easy to work hard. I always look forward to seeing Kay’s name on the schedule.
Wow … Kay is always such an inspiration and displays tremendous passion for the original hot yoga. I am one of Kay’s many students and I can feel Kay’s genuine love and passion in every class. Just when I think I’m out of energy during class, she’s there giving that extra boost … Telling us, “If you can, you must!” I used to only run and lift weights, which really tighten my hamstrings. Since I’ve incorporated hot yoga in my routine, it has properly stretched my hamstrings and feeling so much better. It’s a journey … It gets better and better!
The best class, start to finish, that I’ve ever experienced was with Kay teaching. She allows space for meditation and has a contagious energy that is very motivating – she had me actually enjoying an extra long set of Camel! She’s an extraordinarily gifted teacher, and I can’t wait to take her class again!
Kay brings lots of knowledge and energy to every class! Her passion for yoga is inspiring! Class is always fun and exciting when Kay is teaching!!!
Kay brings a great perspective to each posture in class. As a yoga teacher myself I see her love and energy for this practice, it will motivate any student!
Excellent teachers are consistent and find ways to make novice and advanced students improve. It takes a unique skill set to motivate with positive feedback and constructive criticism. Kay possesses these gifts. She is enthusiastic, patient and genuinely wants to see everyone benefit from yoga. Middle Georgia has a world class yoga instructor.
Kay teaches with passion and enthusiasm. Each class I feel revitalized and inspired. My favorite piece of information she has imparted to me during class was the following idea: we do yoga so we can learn to help and heal ourselves. Once we can do that for ourselves, we can help to do that for others. If we can do that for ourselves and others, we can help to change the world.
As a Bikram instructor, Kay Forrester is the perfect blend of compassion and passion. She tunes in to her students’ needs, and she paces her classes to encourage us to find that balance between athleticism and meditation. Every class is fulfilling in its own unique way, and I am so thrilled that my hometown is finally getting a yoga center that provides the physically and spiritually healing benefits of Bikram yoga.
The practice in a heated environment really helped me recover from the knee surgery and has given some relief from the arthritis. My flexibility has drastically improved, my weight is down, and I am more cognizant of my diet. I am positive that this practice will continue and that I will continue to improve. On instructor always reminds us that it is “Yoga Practice.not Yoga Perfect.
With a strong, upbeat and highly energetic delivery, Kay Forrester has mastered the Bikram standard dialogue. I am inspired by her highly effective teaching skills
