Meet the Teacher: Gillian Brown

2019-01-24T19:59:37-05:00

Oh, Gillian! We are so lucky to have Gillian Brown as a teacher at THYF. Easy breezy, and helpful at the front desk, she subtly brings out a whole different side when she's on the podium or leading you through an Inferno Hot Pilates class or showing you how to [...]

January 2019 THYF Hotshot: Tim Knight

2019-01-06T17:43:49-05:00

Sometimes when a student is new to me at The Hot Yoga Factory, I make the assumption that they are also new to this style of yoga. This was true - but incorrect - when Tim Knight first came to one of my classes at The Hot Yoga Factory. I [...]

December 2018 HYF Hotshot: Jen Hoar

2018-12-07T21:53:17-05:00

If I had to list my ten favorite moments from 2018, one of them was watching Jen Hoar record her video submission to the New England Regional Yoga Asana Championships. Always a yogi with a determined practice, Jen took the plunge in September, agreeing to train with Team Chelmsford. Watching [...]

Be inspired, not intimidated!

2018-10-25T21:01:10-05:00

When you look at our class schedule, you will notice that almost every yoga class is listed as a "Beginner's Class." What does that mean? That means that every posture we do in class is appropriate and accessible for a first-time yogi, taking them through a "normal" range of motion. [...]

2018-10-09T13:41:43-05:00

If you watch The Great British Baking Show (and if you don't, you should, it's so good!), you know how Mary Berry, always encouraging and kind (but with very high standards), seems so sad to tell the bakers when their pies and pastries emerge from the oven with a "soggy [...]

October 2018 HYF Hotshot: Debbie Butts

2018-10-05T12:19:01-05:00

Not long ago, I had just pulled into a parking space at The Hot Yoga Factory with my teenage sons, when a fellow yogi drove up and parked next to us. Both boys said, in the fondest way, "Hey, it's Debbie!" That's a common reaction to finding yourself in the [...]

All Questions are Good Questions!

2018-09-11T12:10:02-05:00

Every so often, a person will call out a question about a specific posture during class. It's almost always a good, relevant question, and if it can be answered in a sentence or two or with a quick visual, the teacher is happy to answer. But the 90-minute class is [...]

2018-08-20T16:53:16-05:00

Nice toe-stand, Ben! Teaching the Youth Yoga class at The Hot Yoga Factory is one of the most gratifying things I do every week. Kids come to class for a variety of reasons. Some are curious about their parents' yoga practices. Some are wrestling with anxiety and other [...]
