Interview with Shelby C. | May, 2015 | Radiant Hot Yoga student spotlight

How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life... Interview with Shelby C.

What benefits were you hoping to receive from your yoga practice?

Originally, I found yoga as a way to achieve a healthy workout. My mat became a place where I was able to get out of my head & into my body.   This has been such a gift!” – Shelby C.


How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?

As a yoga teacher and student for 10+ years, my yoga practice now is more focused on breath work. Aligning breath with movement continues to be a challenge…

However, the teachings of yoga {along with my own humor} have taught me that there’s no such thing as a perfect practice. When I take this lesson and apply it to other areas in my life, I come from a more accepting space – both of myself and towards others.” – Shelby C.

How has yoga benefitted you off the mat?

Each day my body faces various challenges – my mind is in a different space… and this is OKAY.

Learning to be gentle with myself has been one of the greatest lessons & gifts of this practice.” – Shelby C.


Do you notice a change in your physical, mental, emotional and or spiritual body from a regular yoga practice?


When I’m away from my mat for work, or personal reasons- I notice my whole mind/body connection struggles. This is why it’s important for me to take at least 5-10 minutes each day of sitting meditation {typically at home before the day begins}.

This process helps to keep me grounded, in the chance I’m not able to make it to the studio for a physical practice.” – Shelby C.

Have you tried other styles of yoga? What makes Radiant Hot Yoga your preferred place of practice?

I have tried many types of yoga and truly enjoy them all. Each type of yoga has been helpful for my mind/body at that particular moment in my life. Restorative, Yin, Bikram, Vinyasa and Ashtanga are just a few of my favorites.

What I love about Radiant is the Flow aspect.

I also love the convenience factor {5 min from home and office!} …and especially the HEAT.

Radiant is by far, the hottest studio in Newport and I always leave feeling refreshed after a nice, juicy sweat. I am beyond grateful for this yoga community!” – Shelby C.
