HYA’s Sweet 16 Celebration!

By February 27, 2023March 1st, 2023No Comments

It is our Sweet Sixteen anniversary at Hot Yoga Asheville, and I wanted to take this moment to share some reflections. I am looking forward to all that is to come, and hope you receive this message with love and gratitude in your heart. I am so honored to be a part of the project called HYA and humbled by your participation in it. 

With so much appreciation,


It’s been 16 years of cultivating HYA to be the studio it is today. A place filled to the rim with the most powerful people (whether they see it now or not.) There is something special that is brewing in our yoga studio and I thank you deeply for being a part of it – with you we elevate the community around us and each other. 

It’s been 16 years of listening to my gut, sometimes oh-so-painfully slowly. 

16 years of taking on debts and risks, on the running engine of hope that people will continue to need what HYA has to offer. 

It’s been 16 years of watching humans open up to their inner power on and off the mat. Sometimes we have hard conversations that lead to beautiful unfoldings. We experience legit breakthroughs and continue to break the mold. 

Its’ been 16 years of engagements between yogis. We’ve witnessed love twine and unweave and regroup just as quickly. We’ve witnessed fears present as anger. We’ve witnessed self love present as depression. We’ve seen hope present as frustration. We’ve experienced shifts that felt excruciating, but simultaneously fill us on the other side with more power and more love. Oh! The complexities we humans get to experience… At Sweet Sixteen. 

It’s been 16 years of intentionally creating a space where we hoped as many people as possible could feel they belong. And at the same time, always feeling we want to do more. 

It’s been 16 years of running away from the way I’ve seen it done and working to flip the script on the way we proceed bravely forward and how we interact with one another. 

There are times that teachers must be firm. There are times where we need to be more quiet. There are times where we patiently wait and observe the magical unfolding of who we all are in front of us. 

There are times when on the mat we are each so exposed to our own light we feel blinded by it. 

The past 16 years continue to be nothing short of amazing. All the parts of it. 

And I continue to be in awe of the light you emit. Thank you for showing up for yourself. Thank you for your trust and bravery. Every day. On and off the mat. 

You are a part of the whole and you are a part of what makes this ship sail. 

With much love and gratitude,
