What benefits were you hoping to receive from your yoga practice?
I was hoping to receive enhanced flexibility and relief from aches and pains, especially in my lower back. An easier time breathing, weight control and an overall feeling of relaxation and a more positive outlook.” – Jonathan
How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?
It has exceeded my expectations in every way. My lower back feels amazing. My posture has noticeably improved, I breathe easier on a day to day basis and I find that my focus and mental clarity is much sharper as well. I look forward to my yoga practice and the time I spend in the hot room, it is often the most impactful time of my day.” – Jonathan
How has yoga benefitted you off the mat?
I have found that it helps me to be more patient, and understanding with others. More conscious of my own body and it’s needs. I have also found that my diet has improved and my sleeping patterns as well.
I initially sought out Yoga to aid in my recovery from my Jiu Jitsu training which often leaves me sore and with strained muscles and joints. It has absolutely helped me to recover faster and be more flexible and adaptable in my Jiu Jitsu training.” – Jonathan
Do you notice a change in your physical, mental, emotional and or spiritual body from a regular yoga practice?
Yes I have noticed a positive change on all of these areas from my Yoga practice. More than I anticipated.” – Jonathan
Have you tried other styles of yoga? What makes Radiant Hot Yoga your preferred place of practice?
Radiant Hot Yoga was truly my first hot yoga practice. I was traveling for work and I tried taking a Bikram class in New York. It was not enjoyable in any way. The style was very ridged and the teacher was unwelcoming to new students. It was as far removed from the inviting and fun experience at Radiant Hot Yoga that I had become accustomed to.
I went the one time and never went back. I plan on attending Radiant Hot Yoga for the foreseeable future and I feel blessed to have yoga become part of my day to day life.
It’s exercise that I can do daily and incorporate for the rest of my life.” – Jonathan
