2. HotYo Studio by Adelina

Adelina found love in hot yoga when she was first introduced to it in Chicago. The stress of work, studies and the harsh winter helped her stumble upon hot yoga to aid in her productivity and energy levels. Not being able to find a studio that suited her needs, she dedicated her time to design, build and run her own hot yoga studio, HotYo Studio. An architect by profession, Adelina has poured her chic, elegant monochrome style into her beautiful studio which also has a small physiotherapy room.

 OneThreeSeven ash be nimble review7. OneThreeSeven by Edea

Edea came back from Washington D.C 8 years ago and noticed a lack of safe spaces for women to work out. Realizing that most Malaysian women prefer the culture of wanting to work out only with other women, she realized she needed to contribute as much as she could to make Malaysia a healthier nation. 
“My goal being in this industry has always been to see Malaysia get knocked off the most obese country in the region list. And now that we no longer are at the top of that list, I’d like to feel that the little dent I made has helped our country become a little healthier and a little fitter.”
