The Nicest Neighbors in the World

2018-01-22T14:29:09+00:00

I experienced two of my favorite teaching moments last weekend. On Friday night, Bob F. was set up next to Polly S. right smack in front of the podium. Prime real estate. Class began as usual, and we worked our way through the standing series. It was a strong class, [...]

January 2018 Posture of the Month: Half Moon Pose

2018-01-21T09:40:23+00:00

In some yoga traditions, the teacher practices alongside the students, physically demonstrating postures. The way that our 26/2 hot yoga series is taught,  the teacher primarily leads class with precise verbal instruction, closely observing the entire room in order to offer corrections and encouragement that guide each student into the [...]

HYF January 2018 Hotshot: Robin Doucette

2018-01-21T09:40:23+00:00

There are two things that I think of immediately when I think of this month's HYF hotshot, Robin Doucette. The first is the contrast between her warm and friendly smile at the front desk and the "I'm coming after you, punk!" look of determination in her eyes when she lowers [...]

365 Shiny New Days! How Will Your Practice Grow in 2018?

2018-01-21T09:40:23+00:00

When it comes to New Year's Resolutions, I'm a firm believer in small, incremental goals, achieved over a realistic period of time. Steps, drops in a bucket, pennies. It all adds up. A small goal is initially less dramatic, but almost always more sustainable over time. And over time - [...]

Have you ever woken up in the morning with an idea in your head completely formed and crafted to just what you wanted? I mean, POW, it’s there! Like magic. And you know deep in your gut that it’s right? That it’s something strong, powerful with endless possibilities? It happened [...]

Meet the Teacher: Ellen Olson-Brown

2018-01-21T09:40:23+00:00

I’ve tried to recall when I first met Ellen Olson-Brown. That meeting is lost in the misty depths of time, hundreds of yoga classes, and thousands of students taught. What I do remember is seeing her showing up day after day, week after week for class and feeling her presence. [...]

December 2017 Posture of the Month: Tree Pose

2018-01-21T09:40:24+00:00

Tree Pose comes at the end of the standing series, when you have been working hard, moving swiftly from posture to posture with focus and determination. The finish line is in sight, but don't take your foot off the gas. Tree is a quietly powerful pose, and you want to [...]

HYF December 2017 Hotshot: Adam Dowling

2018-01-21T09:40:24+00:00

"Adam sent me." We've heard this from more than one yogi walking into The Hot Yoga Factory for the first time. Adam's steady, focused dedication to his practice is evident whether I am teaching from the podium or practicing near him in class. We love it that he has benefitted [...]
