Having never been a person who was interested in physical exercise outside of my routine daily activities, I was quite reluctant to begin hot yoga. One of my co-workers encouraged me to try, and despite my many excuses, here I am, nearly 2 weeks, and 11 classes later and I feel GREAT! I find myself going to class everyday, and am making progress on my ability to hold the expressions with greater endurance and flexibility. Michele and Alex have been awesome instructors, understanding my need to develop slowly, and they provide a very calm, and comfortable learning environment.
At first the heat was my main concern, and now I find myself not really noticing it, but always appreciating how good I feel after sweating through an entire class! I always appreciate the quotes that are recited by the instructors mid class, I find them to be very motivational to my life, and my yoga practice. Before I even finished my first two weeks, I have already purchased the six month package, and am excited to continue practicing yoga with Sun Yoga as often as I possibly can!
Thank You Michele, Alex, and everyone else at Sun Yoga for providing such an amazing place to practice, and learn, and thank you Lily for your encouragement to get me to start yoga!
As a life long surfer and soccer player I'm always looking for new training programs.
Sun Yoga with the heated infrared lights is the best training possible. No impact, lots of sweting and no recovery time needed.
It's just the perfect training regimen and also improves my overall health.
I'm hooked for life :)
I just want to thank you for introducing me to Sun Yoga! Practicing Sun Yoga has helped me in many ways. I've been surfing for over 40 years and really didn't do to much stretching or warming up before a surf. This resulted in back injuries, overall stiffness and chronic pain in my neck and through out my body. What I love about Sun Yoga is I get a great workout and I come out feeling great. Being introduced to Yoga has really helped gain back my flexibility and strengthen my overall body.
Sun Yoga Hawaii provides me with a place and time to develop an improved, personal daily routine. This was my first attempt at yoga classes, so initially I wasn't sure what to expect from the class or from my body. I haven't been as active as I could be, and this yoga opportunity couldn't have come at a better time. I needed guidance, and an incentive to establish a better lifestyle for myself. Sun Yoga has provided me with both.
Michele and her staff have calm, positive, uplifting energy, which allows me to progress at my own pace within the 60-minute series. They remind you to "listen to your body", yet guide you through personal challenges throughout various poses.
I signed up for the $30 for two weeks of Unlimited Sun Yoga classes, and participated in the "challenge" to complete 8 classes with the two weeks. I just finished the challenge and surprised myself by actually completing 10 classes during the two weeks. It's so rewarding to complete the challenge and to see friends and acquaintances do the same! "Congrats!" to everyone on the cute tracking board!
Since incorporating Sun Yoga into my lifestyle, I've noticed a clearer state of mind, and less mental fatigue allowing me to focus better. My skin feels softer, and have less issues related to sinus congestion. Physically, the stretching has reduced work-related tension around my neck and shoulder area, and lower back fatigue from sitting. I also notice better flexibility in my ankle, calf, knee, and thigh area - especially upon standing after sitting for a length of time, or negotiating stairs. Overall, Sun Yoga has provided me with increased mental and physical stamina during my daily, and weekend-warrior actives.
