"Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory............Practice and all is coming"
In New York City, there is a wonderfully successful, hip, and heart centered yoga studio called "Yoga To The People," that has a manifesto which pretty much sums up our philosophy here at Mt. Pleasant Hot Yoga:
THERE WILL BE NO CORRECT CLOTHES
THERE WILL BE NO PROPER PAYMENT
THERE WILL BE NO RIGHT ANSWERS
NO GLORIFIED TEACHERS
NO EGO NO SCRIPT NO PEDESTALS
NO YOU'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH OR RICH ENOUGH
THIS YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE
THIS SWEATING AND BREATHING AND BECOMING
THIS KNOWING GLOWING FEELING
IS FOR THE BIG SMALL WEAK AND STRONG
ABLE AND CRAZY
BROTHERS SISTERS GRANDMOTHERS
THE MIGHTY AND MEEK
BONES THAT CREAK
THOSE WHO SEEK
THIS POWER IS FOR EVERYONE!
Know without a doubt, friends, that our yoga is all about you. Your joy. Your safety. Your path to radiant health, regardless of how flexible or fit you are today.
Yoga is a practice and a wonderfully exciting and challenging path to help empower you to fall in love with your body and your life, one breath at a time.
Here at MTPHY, we offer a variety of diverse classes led by outstanding instructors whose goal is to help you have a high quality and tremendously fun practice. Our classes are open to all levels of flexibility and experience. Whether you're a beginner who can't touch your toes, a college or armchair athlete, a runner with bad knees, a stressed out parent of three, a 30, 50, or 70 year old man or woman with chronic back pain or high blood pressure, or a practiced yogi-THIS YOGA IS FOR YOU!
Our hot room is set to a luxuriously warm 100+ degrees with 40% humidity. Hot yoga de-stresses, delights, and detoxifies the body through perspiration and increased blood flow. Our classes will help you become stronger, calmer, more toned, less stressed, and we promise to always warm you up on a cold day. Whatever your age, injury, or prior yoga experience (if any), Mt Pleasant Hot Yoga has a class that will benefit your body, mind and spirit.
