Hot Yin - 60 min


This class is taught by:

Koreen Clements

Studio Director and yoga teacher 
 
In my previous life I was a neuroscientist. Whilst I enjoyed what I did, I was also highly stressed, anxious about keeping up, having difficulties sleeping and was wedging myself into my jeans. One morning when I was brushing my teeth, I looked in the mirror and saw a bingo wing (the soft flabby flesh of the upper arm) waving back at me. And I could see two future paths… the one that continued on if I did nothing, and the one I wanted. A couple days later I went to my first Bikram yoga class and never looked back. The excess weight melted off me within the first six weeks and even better I discovered that 90 minutes in a hot room was my panacea for the stress of academia.
 

In 2011, I moved to England, became a hot yoga teacher and started teaching in Sheffield. In 2012, I assisted at the Hot Yoga Doctor’s teacher training program and led the meditation component. My teaching centers around the values of alignment, acceptance and appreciation and I love to share theories and strategies for happy and healthy living from yoga, meditation, coaching and of course, science.

 

Over the years I’ve struggled – I’ve been angry, sad, frustrated, lonely, negative, and generally unhappy. And each time, I’ve found that yoga is the best tool to change my state and feel connected, tranquil and alive – now I’m here to help you find true peace and joy within yourself. I believe that yoga has the power to transform your life because it works on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – changing your body, your thoughts, your emotions and your actions so that you can create the life you want.

Relax and renew

This class is softer and slower allowing you to unwind by letting stress and tension melt away. The poses are held for 2-5 minutes creating stillness in the body and mind. The focus is on internal sensations rather than external appearance and is quite meditative.
