Hot Yoga Workshop
This 3-day event is comprised of a workshop, as well as a Hot 26 and Hot 84 practice. The workshop portion will not be heated and is appropriate for yoga lovers of all levels from any style of practice.
Focusing on posture technique, the workshop is an opportunity to feed your practice with information that will help you get the most out of your time spent on the yoga mat. We will cover postures of the 26&2 and the 84 series. Participants can help choose what postures to focus on. We will also discuss concepts that are applicable to postures that we don't cover and to yoga outside of the hot room.
