THROUGH MY PRACTICE OF YOGA AT WILLOW GARDENS HOT YOGA STUDIO, I LEARNED TO DEVELOP A BEAUTIFUL MENTAL INSIGHT, THE SETTING OF AN “INTENTION”. THIS MINDSET OF SETTING AN “INTENTION” HAS OPENED A DOOR FOR ME THAT I DID NOT KNOW EXISTED. THE “INTENTION” INVITES AND ENCOURAGES ME TO FOCUS ON SOMETHING SPECIFIC DURING MY TIME ON THE MAT PRACTICING YOGA IN ORDER THAT I MAY RECEIVE THE MOST LIFE CHANGING PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL, AND EMOTIONAL BENEFITS. - MICHELLE KEY
MY PERSONAL PRACTICE OF YOGA HAS HEALED MY SCIATICA, BUT GETTING ON THE MAT DAILY HAS DONE MORE FOR ME THAN TO SIMPLY PROVIDE PHYSICAL BENEFITS. THROUGHOUT THIS LIFELONG JOURNEY, I AM LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY PRESENT IN EVERY SITUATION.-- BELLE KEY
I LOVE WILLOW GARDENS HOT YOGA! I TURNED TO YOGA AFTER 4 UNSUCCESSFUL KNEE SURGERIES. MY KNEE HAS RECOVERED AND I AM STRONGER THAN I HAVE EVER BEEN. I LOVE THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF YOGA OFFERED AND LOVE THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY THAT HAS BEEN FORMED AT WILLOW GARDENS. DOING YOGA REGULARLY HAS DONE A LOT MORE THAN JUST HELP ME PHYSICALLY-IT IS A GOOD PRACTICE FOR MIND, BODY AND SOUL!
I have practiced yoga on and off for the last 10 years. More off than on due to the fact there was not a local studio until Willow Gardens Opened their doors in Buda. It has helped me during some of the most difficult times in my life. Without the studio I would not have been able to make it through my companies lay-offs. I feel blessed to be surrounded by strong, committed practitioners who share encouragement and compassion. I am truly grateful for this wonderful community and grateful for the practice of yoga. I am healthier today because of yoga.
I STARTED BIKRAM YOGA ONE YEAR AGO AFTER A LONG TIME OF SUFFERING FROM BACK PAIN, AND I NOW FEEL COMPLETELY RENEWED. WHEN I STARTED I WAS NOT SURE IF I COULD DEAL WITH THE HEAT DURING THE BIKRAM CLASS AND IF I WOULD BE STRONG ENOUGH MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. WHAT CAN I SAY... ONE YEAR OF CONTINUOUS PRACTICING BIKRAM YOGA, IT HAS CHANGED ME IN A POSITIVE WAY. BIKRAM YOGA GIVES ME ENERGY, STRENGTH, STABILITY AND STRESS RELIEF AND MY BACK PAIN IS GONE. I LOVE THE CLEANSING DETOXING PROCESS, THE FITNESS AND THE MEDITATION. I ENJOY GOING TO EVERY BIKRAM CLASS, EVEN IF IT`S ALWAYS HARD WORK, BUT AFTER EVERY CLASS I FEEL BETTER THAN BEFORE.
After having two kids and not having worked out for over 2 years I decided to jump into a 60 day yoga challenge at Willow Gardens. Up to this point I had never taken a yoga class in my life and I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself in to! After finishing the 60 day challenge I decided to set an intention to practice 300 classes in 2017. I finished with 306 classes and I thought I was doing it for the physical practice and now realize it mentally saved my life, sanity, marriage and job! The daily me time is something I had not had at all since having kids and I had not realized how much I had lost myself in all my roles. I've lost 12 lbs. on the scale since starting and have gained so much muscle, my back no longer hurts and I'm stretching into new poses, arm balances and inversions everyday. Willow Gardens has become my second home and family that I look forward to seeing everyday.
