I love the hot yoga classes. I have had classes with Dee Ann and Amber, and they were both awesome. Dee Ann is especially helpful with notes on form. I also like that you can rent mats for only a dollar, which I learned when I lost my regular yoga mat and was about to try to do a class with an old pilates mat I found buried in my trunk. Mat rental saved me!
Hugh Flannery began his yogic journey in 2001 at yogaQuest after years of hard labor. He felt his body was deteriorating and, he jokes, that he was pulling muscles even getting out of bed. After four years of regular practice, he became certified as a Bikram instructor in fall 2005 and began teaching. He then studied for seven consecutive years with Jimmy Barkan.
Hugh wants to reach anyone who wants to practice. “A person does not have to be 'in shape' to begin a yoga practice” he says. “Yoga is for everybody. I’d be happy to have a room full of people who don’t know what they’re doing, as much as a room full of longtime practitioners.”
He has an ERYT200 certification and teaches Hot 90, Hot 60, and Barkan-method vinyasa.
