How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life... Interview with Mikhail
When did you first start doing yoga?
July of 2013″ – Mikhail
How has yoga changed your life? (your mood, body, stress level, etc)
When I first started doing yoga I was looking for an alternative to running because my knees were beginning to bother me and I had so many friends tell me how much they loved it.
I really enjoyed yoga and noticed that when I practiced regularly I was much calmer and more at peace. All that being said, yoga became truly transformational when I started going through a divorce. The beginning of that period is when yoga really started to heal me and it became more about addressing emotions and mediation.
Over time the physical aspects became secondary to the “emotional workout”.” – Mikhail
Why do you think everyone should try hot yoga?
It is awesome and offers so many benefits! I tell my friends and family all the time they need to just give it a try.” – Mikhail
What makes Radiant Hot Yoga so special?
I don’t know where to start, but I practiced at a couple of other studios in Orange County before RHY.
I thought they were good studios and I really liked them, but I *love* RHY and the vibe in the studio suits my personality more than any other studio I’ve been to before. You can express yourself or be mellow or everywhere in between.
The students and the teachers all have a real glow to them. I really can’t say enough good things about RHY.” – Mikhail
What advice do you have for new students who want to try hot yoga?
See you soon and go the the hot corner if you really want to sweat ;)!” – Mikhail
What is your favorite posture and why?
Wheel. It was the first pose that I said just try it and see what happens.
It reminds me to constantly step outside of my comfort zone every time I am in that posture.” – Mikhail
