Our mission at HigherDOSE is to bring the incredible benefits of infrared to yoga and fitness. We believe infrared is the most powerful way to sweat out toxins, feel energized, and achieve a healthy glow. With an hour of infrared yoga, you burn 600+ calories (from the infrared alone), lower cortisol, increase serotonin, boost blood flow, and achieve a deep detox. You will leave our classes and saunas feeling reborn, refreshed, and inspired. It's the best of wellness meets fitness.
