We are all on our own personal journey. I would like to share a little bit about my yoga journey with you…

I attended my first Hot Yoga Class in this very studio on August 12, 2007 and fell in love with the mental and physical connection I felt. I began practicing 3 – 6 times a week, shed 40 pounds in 4 months, and was able to discontinue the use of all of my prescription medications. I began to feel healthier and stronger than ever. Convinced of the benefits of yoga, I continued my daily practice and began to deepen my dedication to and knowledge of yoga.

I began my teacher training in 2008 and since then have completed multiple 200 and 500 hour certifications, Yin Yoga training and Mindfulness Meditation Vipasana. My trainings have been diverse but my teaching style has been primarily influenced by Grace and MyLinda Morales, Jimmy Barkan, Rolf Gates, Chris & John Yax , Deepak Chopra, Bryan Kest and Paul Grilley. I fundamentally believe that anyone can change their body and their life. I believe we can in fact, grow younger and stronger. I would love to show you how Hot Asana can be a part of that change. It doesn’t matter when or in what condition you start…JUST START. Your best YOU may very well be yet to come.

My name is Tali. I have been working for Hot Asana since 2015, so some of you may recognize my face. My practice began in 2012 when I had to pick a physical education class to satisfy my college graduation requirements. I picked Yoga 101, and quickly fell in love with the movement aspect of practice. In 2017 I had the opportunity to sign up for a 200hr teacher training with Hot Asana. It was during those months that I found a better part of me hiding in the safest most buried spaces inside. Through my practice, on and off the mat, I continually find fragments, slivers, and glimmers of her.
