Interview with Susie

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

I needed a way to stay physically active without causing pain after I was informed by my doctor that I could no longer run due to two herniated discs in my neck.” – Susie

How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?

My experience far exceeded my expectations; because not only has yoga kept me physically active, it has cured my chronic pain.

I had been in physical therapy and chiropractic care for over 10 years and hadn’t received lasting results, Radiant Hot Yoga has cured my body.” – Susie

How has yoga benefitted you off the mat?

My practice makes me feel challenged, empowered and confident in all aspects of my life. It has also taught me self-acceptance: willingness to accept my weaknesses along with my strengths. This feeling keeps me motivated to continue and deepen my yoga practice.” – Susie

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

Of course!

I am stronger and yet more at peace physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! I recently went on the retreat to Tulum, Mexico and that experience and connection is truly beyond words.” – Susie

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

Yes, I have tried many types of yoga and have enjoyed them all. Yet, I have never connected with a style and studio until I tried Radiant.

I am truly OBSESSED with my practice, the studio, the flow sequence, music, amazing teachers, and the feeling I have when I finish class.

I absolutely love my Radiant family and beg everyone I know to try it!” – Susie

Interview with Justin

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

I wanted an activity to stretch my hips and help with my cross fit training.” – Justin

How has yoga and your practice exceeded your expectations?

Yoga has totally exceeded my expectations; it is so much more than just a stretching exercise, it is a physical challenge. Yoga has changed my mental outlook, and has made me stronger physically and mentally.” – Justin

I have a greater sense of peace and a quieted mind and body that I take with me off the mat.” – Justin

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

“Yes, All of the above! Especially since going on the yoga retreat to Tulum, I feel even more connected to my mind, body and spirit.” – Justin

Yes, P90X.

The “family” aspect of Radiant is what makes it so special to me. Everyone I have met at Radiant is cool, we all seem to have the same goals of becoming more connected, and filled with love and peace.” – Justin
