Laena Ilk

As a native of Minnesota (and having grown up in Pittsburgh), I have always been drawn to anything that keeps me warm. When I heard about the 105-degree room in NYC in the winter of 1999, I said “Yes, please!” Little did I know that would be the beginning of a years-long journey of practice and teaching that I credit with helping everything from scoliosis to asthma to depression. I have also discovered that it is my own personal fountain of youth – combined with lots of sleep!
