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?

The yoga grind can definitely get overwhelming. So many poses, so many postures, so much sweat, so much strength... how do you do it all?
Every yogi has a purpose. From healthy weight loss to emotional regulation, there are always a rhyme and a reason to our choices – including rolling out our mat.
For Urban Fit Yoga owner and founder, Wayne Campbell, the role of yoga has been life-saving. After facing several severe accidents, Wayne was left hurting with a body that could not support him.
Eyes contemplating your ceiling, cozy comforter swaddling just right, and your spine questioning whether you can make it through another long day at the office. Remember this? We’ve all been there.
The achy, throbbing sensation that greets your vertebrae each morning is nothing foreign to the modern world. In fact, according to a recent study by the American Physical Therapy Association, more than two-thirds of Americans experience low back pain. Now, that’s a lot of people.
From hot pants to hot yoga, there’s never been a shortage in “getting your groove on.” But what happens when your muscles ache, grow rigid, and stay stiff? Getting groovy and feeling good quickly becomes much, much harder.
