How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life... Interview with Stephen
What made you try yoga? What made you continue to practice regularly?
“I originally tried yoga out of curiosity and looking for something to increase flexibility and decrease stress. I continued to practice regularly because of how great I felt after classes! I noticed stress of the day/work was really decreased or disappeared. It made me happier overall! During other activity such as running, weight lifting, hiking, my stamina and strength was also increased.”- Stephen M.
What makes Radiant Hot Yoga so special?
“Radiant Hot Yoga is an incredible experience. Upon walking into the studio you are welcomed warmly by name, made at ease about the challenging experience you are about to go through and always empowered and encouraged! The community at RHY is incredible and will make you feel like family. The studio and facilities are also sparkling clean and it really feels like a second home.” – Stephen M.
Why should everyone try hot yoga?
”Everyone can benefit from hot yoga, whether you are a runner, a weight-lifter, injured or completely inactive. The heat enables you to move deeper and stretch in ways you never thought possible. You will immediately notice physical and mental changes with regular practice and stress of your daily life will melt away! The heat and the class really has the ability to heal.” – Stephen M.
What advice do you have for new students?
”Stay calm, drink lots of water before class and arrive early, it is a challenging experience but if you can just stay in the room on your mat your first class, you can do anything! Also, come back, every class is different and every day is different, but after a few classes I can almost guarantee you’ll be addicted!” – Stephen M.
What is your favorite yoga pose and why?
”I think my favorite pose is probably Standing Bow. I enjoy this pose because it’s really challenging and requires intense focus. I have seen my pose improve drastically over the last year thanks to RHY!” – Stephen M.
