I originally joined My Hot Yoga Place when they opened, and at the time my husband and I were training for and running half marathons. We originally started to help us stretch and recover from our runs, but it soon became more to us than that. As with many of us, workout patterns and goals change and we ended up trying out other gyms/regimens. I think I always knew I would get back to yoga and that time came this past year when they added the 6 AM Yoga Express Class. The instructors, classmates, kick-butt workouts, music, friendships, and fun make this the best way to start the day. And even though I am partial to the 6 AM, I know every practice at MHYP is like this. If you are considering joining a studio, come try it out. You will be so glad you did!
