Hot Yoga class description:
This 90 minute class includes a set sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Hot Yoga begins with pranayama deep breathing to oxygenate and energize the body. The Hot Yoga series will systematically massage and stimulate every muscle, gland, and organ. Each posture prepares the body for the next, allowing students to gain strength, flexibility, and balance. Hot Yoga is an excellent foundation for learning proper alignment and developing the concentration needed for meditation. Typically practiced in a heated room which is 105-110 degrees. However, this was video shot on a very hot summer day to capture the essence of this ancient form of exercise which helps maintain well-being.

Francesca Asumah BIO:

Born to an English mother and a Ghanaian father, Francesca’s growth continued exponentially through yoga and has brought her incredible joy and unspeakable sorrow, she will be the first to tell you: “You can’t heal without suffering—the heart must be broken open.”

This embracing of the light and the dark gives Francesca a unique perspective on yoga—and life in general. Her classes are more often communal celebrations: pupils feel as though they have been existentially altered as they “dance with the ancients” through the 26 + 2 series. Francesca encourages her students to be their own guru—and connect with their own inner observer. She adheres faithfully to the lineage, but infuses her own brand of nurturing and empathy. And though she is a master of this singular blend, Francesca herself will say that she is still more student than teacher, always thirsting for insight.

Francesca is truly one with the divine. She is a being made of light, her body is made of stardust—and she is LOVED: by her students, her colleagues, and especially by her two beautiful children.
