What is yoga? The practice is really whatever you want it to be. It can be serious, it can be simple, it can be passive, it can be aggressive: it is yours to decide. The decision may change monthly, it may change daily. Your practice may be solely for the body, or maybe it is for the mind or the spirit. It could very well be for all of the above. You don’t have to be flexible physically but I highly recommend approaching your practice with a flexible mentality. As a practitioner for 15 years, and a teacher for 12, I can tell you that it is worth every challenge and every drop of sweat. Now let’s get it!

My name is Talitha but most call me Tali. I have been working the desk at Hot Asana SP since 2015, so some of you may already know me well. I'm a mother of three, and have been married to my best-friend since 2006.

Yoga is so much more to me than sweating and moving in a hot room. My practice began by chance in 2012 when I had to pick a physical education class to satisfy my graduation requirements through SCC. I picked Yoga 101, and quickly fell in love with the movement aspect of practice. I knew right away that this wasn't just something fun to do to pass my time. I felt like I needed to know more, like I needed to attain this 'thing' that was just out of reach because my day to day life was in the way. I wasn't ready.

In 2017 I had the opportunity to sign up for 200 hour teacher training with Hot Asana Yoga University. It was during those months that I found myself, my better self. I discovered that my life hadn't been in the way of my practice, but rather my practice could help me live a happier life.

Life is tough, and sometimes messy; but the one thing I have consistently learned, and repeatedly found to be true, is that somewhere inside of me I already have the necessary tools to navigate through this mess with love. I am love. We are love.
