A hot and happy yoga anniversary
FREE goodies and offers were handed out as Hot Yoga House in Eastcote celebrated its first anniversary. The business, which runs yoga classes, marked its success with an open day last month offering discounted membership, healthy eating demonstrations, massages and goodie bags.
Co-owner Amy Partridge said: “We were expecting a couple of hundred people but we got well over that by the end of the day. People came down who were already members, and then obviously we’ve got loads of new people as well.”
Ms Partridge and business partner Leanne Weston, both from Ruislip, were inspired to open the studio after travelling around south-east Asia.
She explained: “I studied yoga while travelling and did it a little bit t back here. I wanted to bring yoga into my everyday life, and give back k to people what I’ve been able to find from it.”
Ms Weston added: “I’ve got scoliosis, my spine is slightly twisted, and I’ve spent years going to doctors, chiropractors, I’ve had X-Rays in hospital and nothing really worked and I was in pain.
“Then I heard about the hot yoga, and I still can can’t t believe how much it’s helped me, and now I’m completely pain-free.
“It’s massive in Australia and massive in America. There were a few studios in London when we started, but it wasn’t as big as I thought it should be.
“Since we’ve been open it’s been amazing. Seeing people’s progr progression from when they started to wh where they are now is just unbe unbelievable.
“P “People who have lost stones in weigh weight, people who came in really shy, a after a couple of months just beco become completely different peo people.”
