HOT YOGA CLASS 90/90 now at studio!


90/90 is a series of postures and breathing exercises practiced in a room heated to 90° for 90 minutes, it works all five systems of the body including every muscle, cell, tissue, gland, and organ, It increases circulation and is great for joint pain and healing injuries. It is for beginners and advance practitioners whether flexible or not.

Class is taught my Maria Jose here is what she has to say about it....

I was introduced to the original hot yoga while living in California in 1999. I fell in love with the postures and breathing exercises that are always in the sequence. This known process helped my mind relax and allowed my body to be surprised every time. The sequence is designed for beginners but that does not mean it lacks in the challenge department. Sometimes the challenge can be physical but most often it is mental. Any discomfort would expose unexpected static in my head. A non-invited parade existed through my various flow routines. And that was the real beginning of the practice! With a consistent practice the discomfort of the real world didn't phase me like it used to.

In the spring of 2011 I was part of the rigorous training to become a certified instructor which allows me to bring the Hot Yoga experience to others.

My teaching experience has been great. I traveled to different parts of the country for months at a time honing my teaching skills. Every place had a different culture but the benefits of the practice became similar everywhere. I'm now excited to introduce those benefits to the place I have been calling home for the last couple of years."

Do try to attend this will be a great addition to our yoga journey!

See you Thurs at 9:30 am!
