How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life...

What made you want to try Yoga?

“I had always heard that yoga was a great way to heal. With all the hype that yoga has gotten I was very curious as to what it was all about.” – Erik K.

Erik-K-RHY-student-profile-picEric K. has been a yogi for 9 months and began his journey with Radiant Hot Yoga!

Why did you continue to come to yoga?

What makes Radiant Hot Yoga so special?

“Radiant is unlike any other yoga studio because they truly treat you like family here. When you walk in it is warm and welcoming and everything here is so clean, well taken care of, and nice. The classes are amazing because it is MY time of the day where there are no distractions and I can let everything go in the hot room.” – Erik K.

Why should men try hot yoga?

“I think many men think that yoga is super easy and just stretching but it is really an amazing work out and keeps you in really good shape.” – Erik K.

What advice do you have for new students who want to try out a class?

“Get to class early to acclimate to the heat, and leave your judgements of yourself outside the door and do the best you can!” –  Erik K.

  1. HI,
    Thank you for your question!
    There are many benefits of hot yoga for anti-aging.
    The skin is our largest organ, the heat creates a natural exfoliation from every pore on your body. You literally sweat the toxins out! As you concentrate on breathing long and slow for 60- 80 minutes this allows more oxygen into the lungs, repairing cells and fueling the body and brain. Also, this creates a calming effect on the brain and the tissue. This is why it is recommended for high blood pressure, PTSD, depression & drug detox.
    Yoga is not meant to be easy, it is meant to be challenging. The heat ads to the challenge. Scientific reports have shown that if you can create a sense of peace especially of the facial features & calm breathing patterns in times of stress, that you can change the chemistry in your brain. This will directly effect how your body will react to stress. If you can learn to teach your body how to react to stress in a calm way, you are doing the #1 anti-aging remedy available. Stress is the biggest cause of aging, sickness, cancer and disease both mentally and physically. Yoga cleanses the body with twist, folds, bends and stretches, this works the organs and the spine. The heat allows you to move deeper into these postures by allowing the muscles to gently soften.
    You will notice practitioners of hot yoga to encompass a radiant glow.

    In radiance and health,
    RHY
