As we all have worked in the corporate world, we understand the difficulties of finding time for fitness and taking care of our bodies. We are bringing hot yoga to busy downtown San Diego so other busy professionals can share in our passion, have a place to de-stress before, during or after work, and hopefully leave our studio feeling stress-free, pain-free, and ready to take on the challenges of a demanding lifestyle. To do this we are going to be working our yoga classes around the schedule of a busy professional. Specifically we are offering a condensed lunch class that will be 45 minutes starting at noon. We would like to think of ourselves as different from the yoga community by focusing on the business professionals that come to yoga for different reasons not just the spiritual aspect of yoga. We believe that each persons yoga practice is their own and they are there to improve themselves mentally and or physically. We don't want to be a boot camp type where we force people to fit into a certain little box nor do we want to be the yoga studio that focuses on the mental and spiritual aspect that neglects the physical aspect. We want people to leave feeling like they got in a good workout and feeling more relaxed mentally. We encourage people to do the best they can and feel good about it.
