It’s hard to put into words how Sumits Hot Yoga has impacted me. It’s more of a warm feeling that I get whenever I think about yoga. I think Sumits has everything to do with the reason why I fell in love with yoga and became eager to learn about all that yoga has to offer. About a year ago, I just happened to be sitting next to a guy at a bar talking about hot yoga. His name was Chris Cottle, a fellow yogi at Sumits. I said I’ve never done it but I really wanted to give it a shot and the man insisted I go and told me it would change my life. So of course I went. Molly was my instructor and in that 60 min I’ve never felt more vulnerable, pure, free, and most importantly, alive. It was so special that I quickly became obsessed. I bought a membership, a new mat and loads of yoga books. I annoyed everyone at work because I’d only talk about yoga and they’d laugh and tell me to balance my chakras but I somehow felt like it was my duty to pass this warm feeling I had inside on to others. Yoga at Sumits taught me to how to accept my thoughts without reacting to them, to be kind to myself and others, that yoga is a practice and it’s okay if you’re not where you were yesterday and to smile and take life one breath at a time. I’ve been to yoga classes before that I’ve left early because I knew it wasn’t the right space for me but Sumits Hot Yoga has a unique vibe that makes me feel at home when I enter through the doors. I couldn’t be more grateful for the truly amazing and knowledgeable instructors that have taught me more than they could ever know. I love this yogi community and I’m so very honored to be a part of it. Namaste.
