    • Authorities say 40-year-old Paul Scott Beierle posed as a customer during a November yoga class, then began shooting.

    A Florida hot yoga studio is reopening this weekend after a shooting that claimed the lives of two students.

    Authorities say 40-year-old Paul Scott Beierle posed as a customer during a November yoga class, then began shooting. A 61-year-old faculty member at Florida State University and a 21-year-old FSU student were killed. Five others were injured. Beierle then killed himself.

    Beierle had a history of harassing women and acting inappropriately.

    The Tallahassee Democrat reports that owner Brittani Whittington will lead a music session in the evening in the renovated studio that now has security cameras.

    She said the breathe, movement and music will clear "space in our bodies and our hearts for the new year to come while honoring and remembering our losses."

    Whittington said she considered closing the studio permanently but says the safety upgrades have brought her "needed peace."
