A new yoga studio is opening in the former west-side Firefly Yoga Studio West space at 2313 Zoo Park Blvd.
“There’s just an empty yoga studio sitting there,” says Cristy Anderson, who says it only makes sense to fill it.
She and Gina Cumberland are opening Hot Asana Yoga Studio.
Anderson says “asana” means “posture.”
“Each yoga posture has ‘asana’ at the end,” she says.
Hot Asana will specialize in hot power vinyasa flow, which Anderson says is a type of yoga.
“It’s not a lot of holding of the postures,” she says. “You have a continuous flow of movement.”
Anderson says that “students will move through postures fluidly using their breath to guide them.” Classes are heated, so she says students should expect to sweat while improving their flexibility and strength.
Cumberland is an instructor. She also teaches pottery at East High School.
Anderson, a lawyer, also has a retail background. For years, she worked at her family’s Younger Duds store.
The yoga studio will open on Sept. 1, which is Labor Day, with a one-hour class at 5 p.m. followed by a reception.
About Carrie Rengers

A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
