Hot Yoga + Preventing and Treating Cancer
Are you new to yoga?
Welcome to Dynamic Yoga 4 Love Studio!
You have found your new home away from home.
If you are a beginner, have been not exercising regularly, or more sedentary for a while we recommend that you take 3-4 Yoga 101 classes over a 14 day period. After this period then try a HOT yoga class after acclimating your body to exercise, movement and commitment to yourself.
If you are athletic, but new to yoga, we recommend practicing at least 4 Hot Yoga sessions within a 14 day period minimum to really notice results of Detox and clarity.
After just a few sessions, you will begin to feel the affects of a stronger core, firmer body, calmer mind, a relaxed outlook, better sleep, better sex and a healthy mind-body-spirit connection!
If you practice 1 time a week you begin to change your body.
If you practice 2 times a week you will begin to change your mind.
If you practice 3 or more times per week you will change your life!
There are many researched benefits of yoga, as it is a 6000 year old practice. To name a few, immediately you will see an increase in attention span and focus. Within the first month you will gain better balance, increase core strength, and learn to achieve mental relaxation without external stimulants. These benefits are increased and multiplied with Hot Yoga, as we have seen with our experience. We heat the studio space to a toasty 95-99 degrees and maintain a high humidity level of 65- 70%. We also add ionization to the air to help the nasal passages and airways become clear. This practice is a great detoxification for both the body and mind.
Hot yoga has many researched benefits. This practice increases the body’s ability to access the muscles and ligaments deeper than in a cool room; the practice increases stamina and endurance translatable to many other areas in life. Strength is gained, bone density increased and the simple pleasure of achieving something great is a wonderful reward.

The company was founded in 2008 by Lisa Ware after a few decades of solo personal practice. She was greatly inspired by her late mother, Lorene Farrell. Lisa personally experienced the battle with breast cancer through her mother and was activwely involved in supporting her healing and wellness for 8 years. This was what greatly inspired Lisa to begin sharing healing through yoga, Reiki, organic living and nutrition. Lisa continues to share Lorene’s indomitable spirit, never quit attitude and positive radiance to all that were touched by her and strong will to live. Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure is one of the outlets Yoga 4 Love has shared its charitable contributions because Lorene was American Airlines’ Race Chairperson for many years. Yoga 4 Love also has donated time, yoga and funding to causes such as Haiti Releif, Red Cross, SariSak and many local causes + charities in the DFW cOmmunity.
This was the beginning of the journey of Yoga 4 Love.
What Is Yoga?
Have you always wondered what yoga is? Do you find yourself sitting in a lotus position for hours? Yoga 4 Love exists to bring yoga to you! We are here to introduce yoga to people like you and me. Yoga is a form of connecting the mind…body…spirit with our breath through a series of poses called asanas.
At Yoga 4 Love we teach Vinyasa style yoga, which is a branch of Hatha yoga. Vinyasa Flow Yoga is where the class flows at a pace fluid with your breath. Yoga is like a moving meditation, creating awareness and focusing on conscious relaxation.
Just as people and experiences are vastly different, yoga is significant to everyone in a personal and unique way. To simply breathe, feel and let go for a moment, and learning to do so, …is the beauty of yoga.
