Represented below are my two most inspiring teachers in Yoga. I was already very familiar with the yoga poses from Hatha Yoga but had no idea, what I now refer to as, the greatest transformation of my life, had just begun. During my work for two years at Glow Yoga I took several workshops for beginners, arm poses, and a 6 week series titled 40 days to a personal revolution, and guest Yoga teacher classes representing the teachings of Baron Baptiste, (founder of the Hot Power Yoga Institute). Off to an amazing start, my journey took me from the Gulf Coast area and relocated me to Marshall Texas. I was fortunate that Core Yoga and Fitness had just opened here in Marshall. After practicing with the awesome teachers they offered I still longed for Hot Power Yoga. Having started my Massage Therapy business in June 2015 here in Marshall, I had the opportunity to use a room located right across from my massage space to start a small class for Hot Power Yoga. With the encouragement of the two Yoga teachers listed below I bought an inferred heater and created a 90-95 degree environment to practice and sweat and help others be exposed to the amazing experience I had just three years earlier. With just three small classes a week with a maximum of 5 students each I have been able to improve my practice and help others learn to feel comfortable in any Yoga class while experiencing the power and relaxation of the challenge of Hot Power Yoga. I have now completed my 200 hour teacher certification in Hot Power Yoga and have provided a class 6 days a week at my new location in Marshall TX. Now I have a new beginning back in my home town New Hope Al. I am currently unable to provide classes but hope to have a studio available soon. I have presented below two of my biggest influences in Yoga and hope to resume my love of spreading the health benefits and importance of a Yoga practice. Keep posted and get your Yoga on!!!!
