A new fitness studio in the Mason, Ohio area that wants to help people experience the benefits of yoga. “Hi Fi Yoga is a boutique yoga studio offering a variety of styles and levels,” Tommy Moorman, Co-owner of Hi Fi Yoga, says. “Our overall focus is on heated yoga classes (such as Hot Power and Warm Flow), but we also offer non-heated classes and aerial yoga.”
The start of the business came from her experience with Lori Allen. “I was a student of Lori Allen’s for many years and we eventually started doing private lessons together to develop and grow my personal practice. During those session
There are a wide variety of classes offered through Hi Fi Yoga and they include: Beginner Yoga, Warm Vinyasa Flow, Hot Power Yoga, Hi Fi Yin, Hi Fi Aerial Yoga and Buti Yoga. “If you are newer to yoga or even newer to heated yoga, I’d recommend starting with a Beginner Yoga class or a Warm Vinyasa Flow- both of these classes spend more time explaining and breaking down poses,” Moorman says. “If you have already been practicing heated yoga, you can jump right in to a hot power class right away.”
Hi Fi Yoga is different from other practices because they push people to realize their true power. “I see the main difference as pushing people to challenge themselves and discover their true power. Most yoga studios teach at an introductory level and will not encourage students to try inversions or arm balances, for fear of scaring people away,” he says. “We don’t want our students to feel intimidated, but rather to feel inspired by what they see other yogis doing in class and be willing to give it a try.”
To Moorman, Hi Fi Yoga is High Fidelity Yoga. “Music is key in motivating our students all while keeping the class fun and light-hearted,” he says.
Moorman loves his job because he gets to see lives being changed. “I love when my students reach new milestones, like hitting a new pose for the first time,” he says. “It’s incredibly rewarding and inspiring to see others pushing out of their comfort zone and try new things.”
What gets Moorman to come back to work is the belief that yoga is for everyone. “I believe that everyone can benefit from yoga, either to clear their mind, build strength or gain flexibility,” he says. “Knowing that I’m helping other people reach their goals, both physically and mentally is what drives me each day.”
