After 5 years of practice, yoga keeps me sane and in tune with the needs of my body and my mind. It really has become an essential part of my daily life. I recently reached out to the owners of Kamloops Hot Yoga and asked Trina Redman if she would be willing to write for my newsletter. She not only did that but is offering any of my readers & clients the opportunity to have their first months membership for only $45! This an incredible deal and I encourage everyone to give it a try. Your body and your mind will thank you for it!
Hiya, my name is Trina and I’m the co-owner of Kamloops Hot Yoga. I started a hot yoga practice in 2005 and was ‘hooked’ after my first class. I actually left that class thinking they were all nuts and I was never going back. But as I sat in my car in the parking lot I realized that I’d never felt so good – in my head. It was a great physical work out but I’d been having a lot of problems with anxiety, insomnia, feeling burnt out and stressed out. For the first time in a long time it was quiet upstairs lol. After having a consistent (almost daily) practice for two and half years I took a leave from my career as a social worker and went to Honolulu, Hawaii in 2007 where I completed the Bikram’s hot yoga teacher training. I had no intention of opening a yoga studio but in February 2010 found myself (and my partner Dwight) opening the doors to Kamloops Hot Yoga and leaving my previous career in the dust behind me. I saw the benefits of yoga in my own life and teaching yoga as an extension of my social work experience that I could share with others. I love yoga and believe yoga is for everybody – the young and the old and in between. Now it’s almost 7 years later, I’m in peri-menopause (ladies if you’re there too you’ll get me) and I believe my yoga practice has kept me out of prison. I must also mention that after a consultation with Karen and a change in the way I was eating for this new ‘special’ phase of life she has helped me to stay in my jeans! I couldn’t fool myself anymore when my yoga pants were getting snug. Healthy eating and hot yoga is a match made in heaven. I get questions about the heat and hot flashes … my experience has been that I haven’t had many hot flashes and when I do it’s hard to notice the difference in the heat anyway.
Yoga is a ‘practice’ not a ‘perfect’ – so every day in the room is a different day. I invite you to come and practice with us – mindfully, joyfully, diligently and without judgment. All are welcome at Kamloops Hot Yoga.
