Real Hot 21 - All Levels

This class is taught by:

Erik Goransson

Erik Goransson started doing yoga in 2013 mainly as a way to get more flexible and avoid running injuries. In early 2014, two of Erik's friends invited him to his first Bikram hot hatha class yoga class in Asheville, NC and they were soon driving to Asheville on a regular basis until RHY opened in Johnson City offering their hot hatha Real Hot 21 and 25 series.
Meanwhile, Erik ran a full marathon about every other month over the next two years. During this time, Erik noticed that knee, foot, and ankle pain actually went away. The time to recover between long runs decreased, and his over all health improved. Erik credits his hot hatha yoga practice for this development. Erik also found that his mood and ability to concentrate improved. 

In the fall of 2015 Erik completed Evolation Yoga's 500 hour hot hatha teacher training in New York City. Erik wants to share the physical and mental benefits of this particular sequence of asanas with his students.

Erik has practiced this hot hatha method in studios all over the South East, US, Miami, FL, NY, NY, Berlin, Germany, and Stockholm, Sweden.

Kari Collart

Kari is one instructor who has your back! And we mean that quite literally... as a Chiropractor she knows that a strong, healthy and flexible spine is the key to a long and active life! As a long time practitioner of yoga, seeing the benefits in her own life, it only made sense to become certified to teach so she could further help her clients.
In addition to yoga and chiropractic, Kari is also a Cross Fit trainer. Incorporating elements of yoga into her other training has proved effective in giving athletes a competitive edge and reducing injury. 

Christine Regan

Christine Regan began practicing yoga in 2006 to help alleviate neck and back pain. She loves to try new styles of yoga everywhere she travels and considers herself a yoga nomad. She hopes to instill in her students a love for yoga and inspire them to grow into a deep sense of the mind, body, and spirit connection that makes this practice so unique and life transforming.

Kristy Haynes

Kristy discovered yoga when she was sidelined by a running injury. Frustrated, she turned to yoga as a means of healing and because that was the only form of exercise she could do. She quickly became addicted, and now yoga is her favorite thing to do! Not only did yoga heal her injury, she found that yoga was an amazing workout, aiding in strength building and endurance. Yoga means so much to her, not only as a means to a great workout, but also as a way of connecting the mind and spirit. Kristy loves being challenged and encourages her students to be open to their unique possibilities!
Our most popular class in the Real Hot Series: This 75 minute class features 21 classic hatha yoga poses, performed in a set sequence* which is designed to work the body from from the inside out.

Systematically compressing and opening the body massages and stimulates organs to rid the body of toxins, aid in digestion, and rev the metabolism. The "side effect" is up to 600 calories per hour burned plus a complete toning of all major muscle groups!

The 105˚ room temp will help to further your detox with a good sweat! So dress or undress accordingly to our controlled heat – no long sleeves or long pants please! Remember to bring a BIG towel! Note: class levels for our Real Hot classes are set according to length of class not intensity or difficulty.

* While this is a set sequence it is not scripted so each instructor brings their own experience and expertise to your practice.
