How Radiant Hot Yoga changed my life... Interview with Joyce Novak

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

Initially I was hoping to increase my flexibility, lose weight, and relieve stress. I am happy to say that I receive all of those benefits and so much more!” – Joyce

How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?

Yoga has helped with lower back issues that I was experiencing before I started practicing. Thanks to yoga I no longer have back issues.

My first couple of classes I had a love/not so much love relationship with my yoga practice, but it quickly turned into a 100% love relationship.

My husband Tod and I practice regularly, and when we have to miss a class, we can’t wait to get back to Radiant and our mat. Yoga has definitely become a part of our healthy lifestyle.” – Joyce

How has yoga benefitted you off the mat?

I am more flexible, relaxed and my skin has a nice glow!” – Joyce

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

Absolutely, all of the above!

Regular yoga practice helps me feel stronger, more focused, balanced, and I have more energy.

Every class challenges me to focus on my breathing, postures and push myself beyond my comfort zone. The atmosphere and energy at RHY is awesome. When practicing I never feel pressure or judgement.” – Joyce

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

I have tried other styles of yoga, but I prefer the heat at Radiant. The heat is beneficial for deeper stretching and releasing toxins & impurities.

Darlene, her daughters (Skyler & Savanna), the teachers and staff at RHY are welcoming, passionate, inspiring, and AMAZING!” – Joyce

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

Detoxing, increased flexibility, maintaining weight/leaning out more, and exercising with my wife.” – Tod

How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?

I was surprised at how much fun and addicting it is!

My wife and I practice regularly, and when we can’t make it to class, we miss and can’t wait to get back to RHY. Yoga has definitely become a part of our healthy lifestyle.” – Tod

How has yoga benefitted you off the mat?

I feel very peaceful and less stress. Yoga is a great conversation starter to build an instant connection with fellow yogis.” – Tod

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

Yes, all of the above.

I highly recommend Radiant Hot Yoga to everyone and all ages. It’s also a great experience for couples to practice and receive the many benefits together. My wife Joyce and I have enjoyed practicing yoga together at RHY for over a year.” – Tod

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

I have tried via DVD, which is nothing like practicing with other yogis and a professional teacher. RHY is my choice for many reasons including the heat, atmosphere, the teachers are fun, very encouraging and down to earth. Like they say,“It is yoga practice, not yoga perfect”” – Tod
