- My favorite yoga pose is: child's pose, because you are it's so comfortable, and you are shut off from other distractions.
- Yoga has helped me overcome: My weight struggle. When I first started yoga, I only tried it for the workout aspect, but I soon realized that it was only the beginning of what yoga was doing for me.
- I love my hair because: it is long, and natural, also I can do just about anything with it.
- My favorite god/goddess is Jesus because: my faith in Jesus is one of the things that keeps me grounded.
- You must try this healthy snack: Apples and almond butter, or anything with almond butter really.
- My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is namaste because: it appreciates the love and life in everyone.
- My advice for beginning yogis is: to try it! You never know whether you will like it or not. Also don’t give up after your first time, it takes work and dedication.
- I’m most grateful for my musical talent, it is an outlet for me, similar to yoga.
- If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be: Adele, because I am obsessed with their music, and she's a freaking QUEEN.
- I’m eager to take my yoga to the next level because: yoga has had such a huge impact on my life already, and I cannot wait to see what else it’s gonna do for me.
- My heroes are: Anyone who has served in the military, pushed for social change, and my Mom and Dad.
- My one wish for the world is: For everyone to stop caring what others think, and for everyone to stop judging others. That everyone is happy.
Sophia Stevenson instructs the following:
Vinyasa, commonly referred to as a "flow" style, is a flowing, dynamic yoga practice that connects movement with breath. This moderately paced practice seamlessly blends one pose into another to create heat in the body, build strength, improve balance, and increase flexibility. While these classes are appropriate for all levels of practitioners, some experience is suggested.
Temperature: Warm Flow: 82°-86°
Similar to our Cool Beginners class, this class is designed for new yogis. Our Warm Beginners class offers all the same benefits of our Cool class with the addition of some sweet gentle heat to help you ease into your postures.
Bring on the heat! Aimed at testing the strength and endurance of both mind and body, our Hot Power yoga classes contain powerful sequencing, more advanced poses (modifications offered), and always the invitation to come find your edge. You will leave this class empowered and alive (and not to mention, a little sweaty)!
