Ola Avedissian, Yoga Trainer

I first discovered yoga in my late 20s. I had planned to take a Pilates class, but I had heard that Hot Yoga was both difficult and enjoyable. I had tried a few classes here and there before without much success. It wasn’t at all to my taste. I used to be a gym rat, also I ran a lot, but after my knees started to bother me I became addicted to Pilates.

I was on my way to Pilates when I decided to stop by a hot yoga studio where the class was being taught in Spanish. It was 90 minutes of torture, and even though I like to think of myself as physically fit, that day I completely gave up. I was sprawled out across the floor, and as I looked around, I couldn’t believe that people could do such amazing things there in the heat. I thought the people around me were crazy; I was laughing hard, it was all that I could do … then I started going three times a week and pretty much couldn’t stop.

I loved the way it made me feel. I started to understand my body’s needs better, and I was able to tap into my intuition. It began as physical practice, evolved into a deeper level of connection and changed my life in ways I never even dared to imagine
