Bloodstone


This class is taught by:

Quinn Reynolds

Quinn Reynolds grew up in a family of wrestlers. She spent countless hours watching her brothers’ practice and her dad coach. They were a family of athletes and she was too. She took gymnastics lessons; she took swimming lessons; she took ballet lessons (ask her about them). One day when she was about nine years old and watching yet another intensive wrestling workout she declared that she wanted to sweat, too. No, she did not join the wrestling team. She wanted to learn to play soccer. And so her parents found her a soccer tutor and she spent the next 13 years training and playing soccer year-round including a successful career as a scholarship soccer player for the University of Illinois. The desire to sweat continued, but was never fully satisfied until she stumbled on a hot yoga class. The discovery of hot yoga transformed her passion for physical and mental well being and she committed to combine it with her athletic expertise and adventurous spirit to bring the benefits to others. Quinn studied under Jacqueline Heisel at Frog Lotus Yoga where she received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher credentials in Hatha and Vinyasa flow yoga. She continued her training by completing a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certification at Sunstone Yoga under the direction of Nicole Shaw.
Bloodstone or heliotrope means turning to the sun in Greek. Ancient Greek gladiators wore bloodstone talismans for protection in battle. Equally important in Indian culture, the bloodstone is used for healing. The Arrichion Hot Yoga Bloodstone series is a challenging flow yoga workout practiced to music. Central to the Bloodstone series is the sun salutation asana. Bloodstone is a great strengthening and endurance workout. It is especially effective for competitive athletes.
