Taking yoga classes in Houston, Texas' scorching summer sun is like climbing a mountain made of flaming porcupines. It pretty much seems impossible unless you're crazy. How do people face the fire without getting burned? Or, in more applicable words, how do people commit to a yoga practice when it gets hard?
This past week, Urban Fit Yoga owner and founder, Wayne Campbell, attended the 2017 USA Yoga Championships in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
After decades filled with chronic pain and tightness, Wayne wasn't sure if this accomplishment was even possible. Every day movement was a battle let alone stretching in deep yoga asanas.
And yet, Wayne didn't just go to the championships, he won them.
This journey was not easy or quick for Wayne. It was only years of stretch-focused yoga poses and persistent training that prepared him for this great success. Yes - even taking yoga classes in Houston's Summer heat.
Committing to a consistent yoga practice isn't determined by external factors but rather the commitment to oneself. It's about saying yes to you regardless of the weather or the week. And, with this approach, yoga can change your life.
In fact, yoga has changed Wayne's life so profoundly he created stretch flow techniques, founded a studio, and won the USA National Yoga Championships at over 50 years old.
Wayne has come to understand firsthand that, as we age, it is imperative for every body to incorporate some level of movement and flexibility. Without it, we remain in perpetual states of chronic pain and tightness rendering us incapable of enjoying the sweet subtleties of life - like, playing catch with our grand children, walking with our loved ones, hugging our partners, and so much more.
Understanding this importance, Urban Fit Yoga specially designed yoga classes that have supported hundreds of students maintain flexibility and remove chronic tightness and pain.
Because the most important thing to us is helping you live your best and fullest life. And, if that's the commitment you want to make to yourself, we will be here for you every stretch of way.
