Student Testimonials

I have been practicing yoga at Hot On Yoga since October, 2014. There are so many benefits from yoga - but I guess for me the most important are that I have lost some weight, I feel stronger and I no longer need to take sleeping pills. My head is clearer throughout the day and I am overall a more relaxed, happier person! My favorite thing about Hot On Yoga is how it is such a family atmosphere. I felt welcomed from the second I stepped in there and never felt like a "newbie!" The instruction is consistent and the one-on-one coaching is so valuable. As a facility, it is sparkling clean and the staff is always warm and friendly. I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Hot On Yoga to anyone considering adding yoga to their life.

I started doing yoga around 2000, when Mike opened his studio on Centennial. I moved to Denver in 2003 and could not find a conveniently located studio so I stopped practicing. I just got back into it again, about 6 months ago after Mike opened his new studio - Hot On Yoga. I love it! I hope to practice Yoga until I'm 85 because it makes me so strong. It gives me better balance and it relaxes me deeply.

I started practicing yoga over 15 years ago, but mainly used DVD’s. I was intimidated to actually go to a yoga studio until about 5 years ago. After that, I searched for a yoga studio that offered a welcoming atmosphere, knowledgeable teachers, and a great location. I found all of this at Hot On Yoga. The atmosphere is amazing: welcoming, warm, and friendly. The teachers are knowledgeable and challenge me both physically and mentally. And in addition to all of that, Hot On Yoga has the best floor on which to practice yoga! Until this year, I had never tried a hot class. Now that I’ve tried a HOT class, I won’t go back. When I got a cold, I went to a hot class anyway. I thought the humidity in the room might make me feel better. As I went through the poses, I noticed I wasn’t coughing anymore, I was able to breathe, and I felt better. Instead of my cold lasting the usual 7 days, mine lasted only 2. I’ve also noticed that the yoga classes, both the Hot and the Power Vinyasa, contributed to my conditioning for running. I love running 5k’s and 10k’s and am training for a half marathon. I feel more balanced and my legs and feet are injury free! Yoga has improved my running ability and helps me to maintain a strong, healthy body.

I have been practicing yoga for about 3 years. There are so many benefits I receive from practicing yoga. Physically I feel strong and my practice is integral in undoing the crazy things I do to my body when practicing my other vocations... showing reined cow horses! Emotionally and spiritually, my yoga practice gives me a deep sense of peace and calm. I love practicing at Hot On Yoga because of the warm and wonderful feeling I get as soon as I walk in the door and am greeted by name. It is kind of like a family. Hot On Yoga provides high quality instructors in a clean and inviting studio for a reasonable cost. I am a huge fan!

I have only been doing yoga for a little over a month. I enjoy the friendly, HELPFUL and caring staff at Hot On Yoga. The facility is always very clean and inviting. I started going because of a health scare and although I have just started, here are a few of the things I have noticed for myself. First, you must know I am over 300 pounds so this has not been easy. I have lost 8 pounds and 3.5 inches. Daily living things such as tying my shoes, shaving my legs and climbing stairs are much easier. I sleep better and I am defiantly more flexible. I really don't like exercise so I am happy to find a workout I enjoy.

I walked into HOT on Yoga with a GroupOn voucher thinking this will help me get through my marathon training. After that first class, I fell in love. I asked Haven how many times a week should I practice to get the benefits of yoga. She said "3 times a week." So I made it work and I started practicing 3 times a week - if not more!! I have been practicing 3-4 times a week since May. I love it! My body has changed and my mind - I am more relaxed and feel an energy after class that I love. I am happy, I sleep better and I am less moody. As for my running, I don't huff and puff as much, my lungs have expanded and it helps so much. Also my planter fasciatus hasn't acted up in a long time. I love Hot On Yoga and all the instructors - they make you feel so at home and they encourage you. I love not knowing who will be teaching because each instructor is unique and I benefit from each and every one of them in a different way. They each bring a different feel to my practice! I love them all and I am so thankful for this studio.

I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years at several locations here in Colorado Springs. Since, I've been practicing at Hot On Yoga, I've lost 10 plus pounds and I am fitting into clothes that I have not worn in 4 years!!! My golf score improved by 8-12 strokes, and my drives are 20-50 yards longer. The yoga instructors at Hot On Yoga are the best I have taken instruction from. They are very good at "talking" me though the poses to get the most benefit from my practice. The results I've achieved at Hot On Yoga are superior to other studios in town. The staff at Hot On Yoga are very friendly and personable and always greet me with a smile.

I have only been practicing yoga for 4 months, and I am hooked. From day one, I have felt welcomed and supported by the amazing staff. I am impressed by how effortlessly the teachers are able to support the individual needs of their students while also creating a community feeling in each class. For nearly 20 years, I have been participating in various group exercise classes and these yoga classes are consistently some of the best workouts I have ever experienced! I leave each class feeling challenged and energized.

I have been practicing Yoga on and off for the past two years. The biggest benefit I have seen from my yoga practice thus far is an improvement in my flexibility. I have also been less stressed during the day and have had much greater sleep quality since practicing. I love practicing at Hot On Yoga because the instructors practice what they preach. They promote a lifestyle of healthy living both in and outside the classroom. The friendliness of the instructors is contagious and spreads to the students, which allows for a very inviting atmosphere. I'm very active and have played competitive sports for nearly my whole life. I've always worked to get faster and stronger, but failed to take into account the finesse and mental aspect of sports. Hot Yoga satisfies both, and for that I'm extremely grateful. Thank you very much Hot On Yoga!

I began practicing yoga in March 2014. After I began practicing, my body leaned, strengthened and bent with ease. I had been having issues with my back from distance running and my hips from having children. This all softened and vanished as my yoga practice grew. Mentally is where I see a significant change. I sleep better, have more clarity, feel more patient but most of all am present in the moment. A great deal of this came through learning to breath and relax - funny that I actually had to learn to do that better! I love practicing at Hot On Yoga because it has grown into a family for me. The instructors are invested in your growth and the journey you choose to take. I feel like that 'love' is something that you leave the mat with and have ample opportunity to spread throughout your day.
