"The benefits I have gained from a regular practice have been abundant and my life has changed for the better in ways I could not have imagined. I love practicing yoga, not only for the physical workout, but also the spiritual aspect. When I practice for an hour a day, I feel like I can truly breathe and let go. All of the teachers at Inner Fire Yoga create a safe and welcoming environment where mistakes are accepted."
"My first Hot Yoga and Power Flow classes were beyond challenging… However, with the help of the fantastic instructors at the Inner Fire Yoga, I realized that yoga was unquestionably the thing for me; In addition to improving my physical and mental well-being, I found a way to not let anyone or anything steal my peace. For that, I will be forever grateful."
"A few months into my practice at Inner Fire Yoga, I greatly improved my postures in class, lost weight, gained strength, had greater flexibility, increased my energy, improved my digestion, and enhanced my performance in many other sports. This past winter, I went skiing with my kids, and I felt so felt balanced and quick on my feet. It all seemed effortless! Additionally, I went golfing and discovered I was so much better than I was before I began my yoga practice. My distance had improved (every golfer’s dream!) and my swings were effortless! Now if HOT yoga can improve my golf game, then I am a yogi for life (haha)!"
"When it was over, drenched in sweat and completely emotionally spent, I asked my friend, "Why was this so different from other classes? I feel amazing!" She said, "Inner Fire is a studio with a soul!" She was right."
"There are many layers to my yoga practice. Physically, I have worked through all kinds of aches and pains. My knees, which have been tweaky and tender for probably 20 years, are the happiest. They now feel strong from the inside out, and hardly ever talk to me. HOT yoga provides such an incredible base for my fitness: I can handle the altitude in Colorado when I visit my daughter and scramble all over the mountains with a full pack, can canoe all day on the Kickapoo river, rollerblade my heart out whenever I feel like it, and carry five bags of groceries up the stairs to our apartment without batting an eye. I am stronger and more fit than I have ever been."
"It’s simple, really. Inner Fire Yoga is my sanctuary. My get away from it all space. My time to breath, reflect, recharge, let go and grow.”
"I am beyond grateful for the teachers at Inner Fire Yoga that have guided me, helped me clear my mind and embrace the present moment. Each teacher at Inner Fire Yoga has touched my heart in a unique way and inspired me to continue on this beautiful journey that began with one single step onto a mat."
One of the main aspects I love about yoga is the sense of accomplishment after completing a class, learning a new pose, or balancing in half moon without falling on my neighbor. Some of these yoga moves can be pretty intense, and you feel so proud when you find yourself being able to do something you never could before. I think Inner Fire provides a good balance by encouraging you to "reach higher, burn brighter," but if you're not feelin' so high 'n' bright today, that's cool too. No one's going to judge you. Your practice is your own, and you are the only judge of your progress.
Before finding Inner Fire Yoga, I would practice yoga here and there, but never with the dedication that I do now. It was the heat, the tight-knit community and the welcoming teachers at Inner Fire that inspired me to stick with yoga as a daily practice. During my first class at Inner Fire, I knew I was hooked. Since then, it has certainly changed my life. I instantly began to feel the positive effects of yoga as soon as I began practicing. I quickly found increased flexibility, better balance and stress relief. However, the greatest benefits have taken more time. It has been a gradual process, but yoga has given me the gift of high self-confidence and increased mental clarity.
