TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Friday evening classes returned to Hot Yoga Tallahassee.

It's been five months since a man shot and killed two people and injured five others at the studio.

The community is still in the healing process from the shooting that took place here. Friday's class was one step the community is taking to try to move forward.

The yoga studio officially reopened in January, but they never resumed Friday classes until April 5.

The owner of Hot Yoga Tallahassee says that she has struggled with Friday evenings since the shooting, but she's finally ready to move forward:

"I know it was not easy to return, and some still aren't ready and that's okay too. I genuinely find myself overwhelmed with brightness whenever I come to the studio. Some days are harder than others as I'm sure is your experience too--but it always comes back to a place filled with love that nobody can destroy."

The doors opened Friday at 5:30 p.m. for a special two hour music flow class.
