Our Hot 75 class follows the same sequence of posture as the Hot 90. The only difference is that there is only one set of some postures, less rest for time between postures, and some postures are sequenced together without a resting period. It is advisable that a new student first practice the Hot 90 sequence to become familiar with the practice, then begin the 75 minute practice, though all classes can be practiced by beginners. The room is heated to 105 F and relative humidity of 40%. This is a great sequence if you are short on time and seek to maintain an already established practice.
I was first introduced to yoga in the mid 90's when the costume designer at Willamette University saw a need and generously taught an unofficial vinyasa class to stressed out students. Years later I took up long distance running and needed something to help with muscle cramps. As I ran past the yoga studio I remembered those beautiful classes and decided to try yoga again. I was immediately hooked.
Eleven years later, a 200 hour YTT in Vinyasa flow at Pure 8, a Ghosh apprenticeship with Seth Brown and a Yin teacher course at Bonfire Hot Yoga all under my belt, yoga has become an integral part of maintaining and increasing my health.
The more I practice yoga, the more it becomes an essential part of my spiritual practice, too. The study of yoga helps me dive deep into all aspects of my humanity, which only serves to increase my understanding of the divine. I hope to offer the opportunity for that discovery to others as well.
In addition to yoga practitioner, I'm a wife, a homeschool mom, and a pastor at Hillsdale Community Church.
I began teaching Bikram Yoga in 2002 and other styles of yoga since 2004. I became interested in health and healing while experiencing serious health issues my late teen’s and traditional medicine could not offer solutions. I began studying alternative healing practices and philosophies. Along that journey, I became a Certified Reiki Master, Kinesiologist, Iridologist, Spiritual Response Therapist, Rebirthing Facilitator, Nutritional Consultant, and Bikram Teacher. Also, I studied Ayurveda, Life Coaching, Oriental Medicine, many forms of energy healing, breath work, numerous philosophies, etc. I practiced hatha yoga for a number of years before beginning to practice Bikram yoga in 2001. The heat of the Bikram room helped me to open up my body to another level that promoted greater healing. And, began practicing other yoga styles in 2004 after experiencing phenomenal healing practicing Bikram. I found yoga in general helps me to be self-aware, connected to my breath and I choose to bring that into the practice room with my teaching.
It’s my personal belief that everyone's yoga journey begins with their first breath, arriving at body, or perhaps even before then. When one becomes aware they are on this path it’s simply a matter of time & perseverance.
Around 2003 I stepped into what I knew as my first yoga class. I was recovering from a traumatic brain surgery that left me chronically disabled - I was 14 years old at the time. It was not hot yoga, but a style based in energy work similar to Kundalini or Qi Gong. It was my first experience in what I knew then as yoga, & had tremendous effects on my physical recovery & depression. Later, in 2008 I would begin my hot yoga practice with Bikram yoga, this time I was 19 & mostly recovered from my surgeries with the exception of chronic nerve damage. I always enjoyed being physical & competitive, & at that first class I knew this was going to change my life.
After about 7 years of practice I found myself going through yet another brain surgery in 2013 - this was to be my 3rd operation. Previously I worked in the trades as a metal fabricator & welder, however this last surgery would usher me into my new occupation as a yoga teacher. In 2014 I arrived at my first yoga training. I completed Bikram’s nine week teacher training, spending the next year after that traveling & teaching around the world & across the USA. My training did not stop there, & since then I have trained under Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers, Esak Garcia, & senior teachers of S.N Goenka (Vipassana) & Richard Miller (iRest). I've also done other 200hr YTT’s in person & online as continuing education. My training hours exceeded over 1000, &, since 2014 my teaching hours exceed 5,000.
This is all to say, teaching is my life's passion. It is not a job or a duty. But a privilege & an honor for which I am grateful.
