YogOdyssey brings hot yoga back to Ithaca

ITHACA, N.Y.—Jackie and Mark de Oliveira celebrated the official opening of YogOdyssey, their new hot yoga studio, which has been under construction in earnest since the beginning of the summer, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 26.

After completing their Bikram yoga teacher training and 30 years working as instructors, the de Oliveiras wanted to share the therapeutic benefits of hot yoga with the community. The pair settled in Ithaca and got to work prepping to open YogOdyssey.

YogOdyssey is also a studio partner with the Original Hot Yoga Association, meaning their classes are the traditional 90-minutes in a studio heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit.
