Boss Hot Yoga

   

"Sean Mc Namee teaches at Boss Hot Yoga in Maynooth and Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. Boss Hot Yoga specializes in Fierce Grace, a new variety of hot yoga based on Bikram, but less constricted.

Why Fierce Grace? Fierce Grace covers the whole body head to toe. It's great for upper body core strengthening. Yoga idol? Michelle Pernetta, who developed Fierce Grace. Pernetta practices what she preaches, which not everyone does. Where do you practice yoga abroad? In Mexico with Tony Sanchez and in Hamburg with James Fox of the Prison Yoga Project which helps prison inmates through yoga. Your dream retreat? Michelle Pernetta's retreats in Turkey, Tenerife and Tuscany. Not too expensive, with food and drinks included. You don't have to be a full-on yogi – you can enjoy the beach too and chill out. Kit tips? Fitted shorts are essiential. You don't want to do hot yoga in a tracksuit or boardshorts. Recommended reading? Moving into Stillness by Eric Schiffmann. A simple book for anyone interested in starting yoga."
