Some people think that yoga is just for girls – think again. FG Brixton has a fantastic mix of men and women practicing at the studio. From firefighters to boxers and dancers to lawyers, we cover it all.
Flying the flag for guys in our reception team is Alvaro: a gym enthusiast and South London lad. Yoga for him? It’s the “missing piece to the puzzle”.
We chat to Alvy about all things fitness…
1.What brought you to hot yoga? How long have you been practising and how have you been finding FG?
I was introduced to yoga by a close friend of mine about a year ago. It’s only been recently that I’ve decided to take my fitness seriously and as a result, I’ve been experimenting with different practises to push my limits to new levels – Hot Yoga being one of them. I find Fierce Grace very enjoyable and it doesn’t feel like I’m walking into a strange new world, but rather a home as everyone is very friendly and welcoming.
