Hot Yoga During the Summer?!?
Practicing hot yoga during the Summer months can help acclimate you to the season's heat, and even arm you with proper coping tools when things get too unbearable (just close your eyes and breathe like you're in the studio, or try child's pose to help lower your heart rate).

Also, without the large difference between the temps outside and inside the studio, you'll be able to warm up faster once you get to class.

No matter what the season, some people can't imagine sweating it out in a hot room for so long, least of all when the weather outside is perfect for a dip in the pool.  


It's important to remember that proper fueling and hydration are especially important when just walking outside in the stifling heat makes you fatigued (try eating something two to three hours before class and drinking at least four liters of water the day of class to help prevent feeling dizzy or nauseous).


Has the Summer weather got you in the mood for hot yoga? Read on to learn all about it!


Why do it? There are many benefits to taking a hot yoga class. The higher temperature not only helps loosen your muscles to give you more flexibility, a 60-minute class can equal serious calorie burn (around 500 calories for a 150-pound woman).  


Hot Yoga is amazing for toning all the areas of your body. 


What to wear: Tight fitting, moisture-wicking clothes are your friends in a hot, sweat-inducing yoga studio. In fact, you may want to wear pants instead of shorts to a hot yoga class, even when the outside temps heat up, because pants will help absorb sweat and keep you from slipping out of certain positions. 


What to bring: There's nothing worse than trying to focus on a pose only to keep slipping because of all the sweat dripping off your body. If you decide that hot yoga is right for you, invest in a Yogitoes or similar slipless towel that you can lay over your mat while you practice.


And don't forget your water bottle!


See you in the Hot Room!!  


We hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather and plentiful rain. It has been so nice to see yogis returning to their yoga practice; we have missed you!

We have loads of news to share with you in this newsletter so you may want to warm up (or cool down) a cup of tea and sit awhile.

First of all, we have one class on Memorial Day - 10a Warm Vinyasa with MyLinda. We have a FANTASTIC Summer Yoga Sale going on until June 15th. We have a new New Student Special and we are adding classes (Yin!) and have made some time changes to the yoga class schedule.

Our Advanced Yoga Teacher Trainings (615 Hour & 750 Hour) kick into high gear beginning in August and our Yoga Therapy Mentorship Program will begin at the Orlando VA Medical Center this summer.

We added a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with two highly knowledgeable and experienced Prenatal Yoga Instructors and Doulas, Katie and Kirsten, from Yo Mama Yoga and Family Center in Boulder, Colorado. We have also added a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training and a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training to our calender of events.

Hot Yoga Pic  


Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga is a fun, creative Hatha class that combines the therapeutic benefits of movement, breath, and energy alignment in a heated room. Benefits of this practice: burns calories, reduces water weight, tones thighs, rear, abdominals and arms. Releases lower back and shoulders, inverts and oxygenates the body for optimal detoxifying and supports stress release, builds lean muscle for a higher metabolism. Open to all levels. New Class Tuesdays at 7:15p (Monday & Wednesday at 7:15 too!)





Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a very simple practice. We settle into an asana (yoga pose) for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax our muscles to allow the deeper drier tissues (the connective tissues that wrap our muscles and make up our joint capsules) to be safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.

The alignment rules of the postures are also simple, but more importantly they are functional and organic: We listen to our bodies and lead ourselves into the shape that follows the natural contours of our spine, pelvis and hips. Wednesday June 5th, 12th, & 19th at 7p use regular class packages.




YogaU Alignment Clinic 

This class is an opportunity for YogaU trainees to further integrate the information presented in our weekend trainings. This class is NOT open to the general public. Thursdays at 5:45p   




Hot Yoga 101

Adding Hot Yoga to your life can make a significant impact on your overall health. Hot Yoga 101 teaches the basics of Hot Yoga including: breathing techniques, standing and floor poses, and the elements of what makes a hot yoga practice unique.
Hot Yoga 101 is an excellent way to discover Hot Yoga and is recommended for students who feel that they are "tight", students who are new to heated yoga, or for current Hot Yoga students who would like to revisit the basics of hot yoga.
This series is the perfect introduction for students from different styles of yoga to learn the names of the poses and how to execute the poses in Hot yoga.
 The studio is heated to 85-90 degrees to help open the body and increase circulation. Expect to sweat! Thursday June 6th, 13th, & 20th at 7:15p fee is $5 or regular class package.

Intro to Inversions & Arm Balances
Sunday, June 16, 2013
Join us as we explore Inversions and Arm Balances. We'll review the Anatomy and Physiology of the entire body as it inverts and balances, discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Inversions and Arm Balances then introduce Alignment Principles to safely create stability, strength, and healthy range of motion while Inverting and balancing. And to put the Anatomy and Alignment Principles into Action, we'll incorporate all this information into an Asana practice (physical poses) emphasizing classical Inversions and Arm Balances. This course offers an in-depth study of classical Hatha yoga Inversion and Arm Balancing poses for the beginner student or it is a great refresher for the intermediate or advanced yogi or yogini.

We will also address the spiritual aspects of Inversions and Arm Balances including, but not limited to, the Bhandas, Vayus, Chakras and Nadis.

Weekend Schedule: 
  • Sunday 9-11a Shoulders and Core Strengtheners
  • Sunday 12p-2p Inversions the Alignment Way

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training
Legs Up the Wall
July 27 & 28, 2013 
Restorative yoga is a gentle inward form of yoga that invites participants to move towards greater balance, control and participation in their life. The participant's body is placed in yoga postures that are supported with props. The mind is invited to slow down with the use of pranayama, visualization and mantra allowing the individual to turn inside. A restorative practice is a complement to any yoga practice or other form of exercise and perfect for almost any practitioner looking to experience a deeper state of relaxation and healing than Savasana or sleep. It is also a perfect practice for those recovering from injury or illness or anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis.

"The Power of Precision" Series - A technique bootcamp for flow practitioners and teachers with Jason Crandell

"It is teachers and practitioners like Jason that will take the art of teaching yoga to its next step." Rodney Yee

In these workshops you will learn how alignment and attention to detail cultivates greater depth and ease in your flow practice-from arm-balance to hip-openers, from backbends to inversions. Said to have a "knack for explaining subtle movements in a way everyone can understand" (Yoga Journal), Jason will help you deepen your practice-teaching you to expand your edge, open your body, and stay connected to your essence. Each workshop will begin with a brief discussion of related anatomy and energetic patterns and move into a smart, satisfying flow practice.
This Master Class qualifies for YogaU (Yoga University of Florida) credits earned toward Altamonte Springs Yoga's Teacher Training Programs.
