Downtown Student of the Month - Holly West!

Even though that first class I practically melted, it turns out that regular classes are even hotter. But it didn't matter though, I was already hooked! I liked that I could concentrate through the heat to find a posture. I loved the challenge. I also loved that the Hot Room is a judgement free zone so I am my only competition. The staff are very knowledgeable, too. I've had several different teachers in the past month--each have a different style and emphasize different points so I learn something new each class that allows me go deeper into a stretch or hold a posture longer. I am much more toned. I trained for a half marathon for 12 weeks earlier this year but I actually saw more results from completing the 30-day challenge at the Hot Room! Hydrate! Even on days you don't go to class. Be patient with yourself and breathe to ease into those tough postures. Camel is the most fun for me! Half moon is my second favorite because I've experienced the most improvement here. My first couple weeks of classes, I hated that posture, but now I look forward to the backbend and really challenge myself to see my reflection in the window--I'm almost there!
