Tips for the Best Hot Yoga Practice:
Create a Strong Foundation
The body part connected to the earth should be grounded.
In neutral alignment we find a state of weightlessness. Know your body structure.
Stack the Joints
Protect the joints by stacking them over one another.
Move from the Bones
Everything is attached to your skeletal system. If you move your bones, your muscles move. The bones are the key to increasing range of motion and discovering limited range of motion. Anatomically, we are all different.
Strength and Softness
Find the balance between strength and softness and surrender into your pose.
