How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life... Interview with Chelyn E. and Elmie E.

When did you first start yoga?

“January of 2014.” – Chelyn

“January of 2014.” – Elmie

How do you think yoga has changed your life?

“When I stopped smoking I knew I needed to do something new. So I purchased a groupon, but I was very skeptical of doing yoga. I had gained weight before starting doing yoga, I never felt comfortable with my body but every time I walk in to Radiant I feel beautiful.” – Chelyn

“Everyone who works here is so welcoming and kind. It is a nice environment to spend time of my day in.” – Elmie


How has Radiant Hot Yoga changed the way you feel, mentally and physically? Are you in better moods? Do you feel happier? Etc.

“It has calmed us down. This is the time that we can now spend together.” – Chelyn

“Yoga has also really changed our diet. We cut out rice for instance, the yoga detoxed our bodies making us crave bad foods less. Our attitude in life has changed – when we are impatient now we can look at each other and just say “let it go”.” – Elmie

Why do you think people should try doing yoga?

“It is a great workout. There is no competition, its your time so once you know that it is not as scary.” – Chelyn

“Yoga really helps with your body. I used to never be able to bend forward and now I can. Our bodies are like iron, once you put it on the heat it can begin to bend.” – Elmie

What do you think makes Radiant so special?

“Even if you don’t get a good sleep, this place gives us energy. We always leave feeling so relaxed and happy.” –  Chelyn

“Its family. When We walk in the door, it’s home.” –  Elmie

What are your favorite postures?

“I love Standing bow because it is great for concentration and working your mind. It makes your feel powerful.” – Chelyn

“Pigeon pose is my favorite because it is really good for my back.” – Elmie
