Tori Hicks-Glogowski trained and worked as a professional Musical Theatre actress for eleven years before deciding it was time for a change. Dealing with body image issues and major hip pain caused from years of dancing in musical theatre shows throughout the country, she found her way to a yoga studio in 2005 hoping to get a great workout before an upcoming audition. What she found over time were two of the loves her life – yoga and the person staring back at her in the mirror. As her yoga practice increased and developed into her life’s passion, she knew it was the right move to get certified to teach and share her love for this yoga with others.
Tori has recently published her first book, VIEWS FROM THE PODIUM: The Life & Times of a Hot Yogi, which tells the story of her yoga journey. She teaches Bikram Yoga, Intermediate Ghosh Yoga, and Hot 26 Plus, as well as, leads workshops and posture clinics, while maintaining her own rigorous practice. Tori is an official USA Yoga Competition Coach and has a Level Two Teacher standing with the Original Hot Yoga Association. Continually inspired by her students and fellow teachers, she believes anything is possible on the road ahead.
