Life Before Hot Yoga

Hot yoga is one of the central elements to our self-customised, healthy lifestyle. It helps us to stay fit, detoxify and keep our minds clear! It is a consistent part of our lives, but it wasn’t always this way! There was a time when we hadn’t even heard of hot yoga and weren’t aware of what we were missing out on! These are the confessions of two hot yoga enthusiasts!



 I was about 16 or 17 years old when I gave my first Hot Yoga class a go! I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was really intrigued by the concept of it all. At this point in time, I was holding a lot of fluid (or puppy fat, haha!) and also had some acne issues with my skin. I remember that my first class was super challenging, but this was probably why I loved it so much! It soon became a regular part of my routine. After practicing consistently for a little while, I noticed that my body shape began to change. I lost my puppy fat and my weight stabilised to a healthy range. I also really noticed a difference in my skin – my acne cleared up and I had a new glow that I had never experienced before. I was loving it!

After years of practice, the benefits have only increased. These days I am of a petite, yet muscular body shape, my skin is always clear and moisturized (never dry!), I am fit and my mind is clear and determined! Hot yoga has been a major contribution to the strong, confident and happy woman I am today!”




 “I started hot yoga a little later than Suz at 23 years old. Actually, it was Suz who introduced me to it!

I have always been interested in fitness and health, and after a major motorbike accident, I became passionate about recovery workouts (such as pilates, strength work etc). Suzanna told me about hot yoga and I was really excited to go to a class – finally a workout that helped with recovery as well as offered a challenge! And what a challenge it was! I was instantly addicted and it soon became a big part of my everyday workout regime. Before hot yoga, I was fit, but not as toned as I am now. Yoga has really helped me to get some definition and build muscle. Mentally, I wasn’t as clear and really lacked direction. I wasn’t flexible and the injury on my ankle from the motorbike accident meant I could hardly walk on my foot! These days, living a life full of hot yoga, I have a clear and focused mind. I feel like I can achieve anything I aim for! My ankle injury has recovered – I can now stretch my ankle and move my foot, which is a huge success in itself. Hot yoga has not only recovered my physical injuries, but has also taught me that anything is possible!”
