August Yogi of The Month
Congratulations to Mike Talarczyk, our August Yogi of the Month! Here is what he has to say about his yoga journey.
As a couple of past experiences with traditional yoga had been rather disappointing, I attended my first class at Milwaukee Power Yoga somewhat begrudgingly. However, a persistent hamstring issue kept sidelining my "high impact" workouts, so I thought I'd give hot vinyasa flow yoga a shot. That first experience was six months ago, and, needless to say, I'm hooked. I have found the vinyasa flow style yoga combined with the heated and humid room to be a very challenging workout and, more importantly, rewarding both physically and mentally. Practicing on average three times a week, I have progressively improved my flexibility, balance, strength and endurance. To me though, the most enjoyable aspect of practicing this style of yoga is the sense of relaxation and calm that is achieved post-practice. It's just an awesome stress reliever. At Milwaukee Power Yoga, the welcoming venue, Laura's calming, positive and mix-it-up instruction and, of course, the hot vinyasa flow style, make a perfect combination for a great workout. I also think it's cool that yogis of varied experience levels comfortably practice side by side. Many thanks to my brother for getting me to that first class, and to Laura for operating a great yoga studio.
Thanks Mike for sharing your experience with us. We are inspired by your consistent commitment to make it to the mat 3 days a week and the growth in your practice really shows! We are so happy to have you as part of our community!
