  • Michele WalshMichele Walsh
    x I am so delighted to be part of the Hot Yoga House Team. It was in 2015 that I came to my first class at HYH and it was like coming home. This space, this heat, this powerful practice… I knew I was hooked. I started with Bikram and then added Flow to my practice. Attending 4+ classes each week, I have not looked back… I am extremely lucky to have been in the first cohort of teacher training at HYH, training with the incredible Karen Bellfield and Pete Cherry. I have worked with the physical body my entire adult life as a Neuro-Physio and in my work I see every day the total interconnectedness of our physical health and our mental-emotional well-being. In Yoga we have a complete and holistic approach to our well-being: as we work through the heat we build mental fortitude; we develop discipline and focus by persevering through the sequences; and we feel healthier as our bodies become stronger, leaner and more supple. I am passionate about teaching a kind and powerful practice. Coming to my mat brings me joy and well-being and as a teacher I get to share this.
