Robyn Briody

I am a Los Angeles native who has been practicing yoga regularly for years. After a serious injury due to a car accident, it was suggested of me to try hot yoga. I quickly realized that these classes not only had physical benefits, but the mental and spiritual benefits as well. Hot yoga heals me physically and emotionally.

Hot yoga is so much more than just fitness to me, It's a way of life. It allows me to connect to my mind, body, and spirt as well as get a killer work out. My practice continues to guide me to the person I am meant to be. Hot 8 yoga is my home away from home. The community and support continues to inspire me.

Christina Molnar Garcia TEACH

Christina was born and raised in Montgomery, New York. She grew up on a small farm and led a very active lifestyle. Christina started running track and joined the swim team in middle school. Running became meditation for her and she was completely addicted all throughout college. When her knees and ankles became too injured to continue running, Christina turned to yoga for exercise. In no time, yoga became much more than just a work out. After less than a year of practicing, Christina took her first 200 hour yoga teacher training at NP Rock Yoga in New Paltz, NY. This life changing experience led her across the country to deepen her yoga practice in Los Angeles. She started practicing at Hot 8 Yoga daily and completed her yoga sculpt teacher training in March of 2017. Christina’s goal is to spread yoga, mindfulness, and fitness to her students and she teaches a fun, energetic class.

Chevonne Burton Laurent

Chevy developed a deep passion for athleticism, music, and movement at age 3, when she strapped on her first set of tap shoes. After years as a competitive dancer, the Michigan native moved to LA to earn her B.A. from LMU, and M.A. from USC. While working in corporate marketing and sales, Chevy found herself spending any free time she had in the pursuit of fitness. Ultimately she decided to leave her corporate career behind and take her passion to a new level, becoming a Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor certified in hot power vinyasa and yoga sculpt, and soon after, a cycling instructor at SoulCycle. Committed to helping her students create a powerful mind-body connection that can be utilized both on and off the mat, Chevy's class can be described as upbeat, challenging, and fun.

Kimberly Cantrell

Kimi’s passion for yoga began when she first stepped on the mat in 2011. The combination of mind and body awareness became a very therapeutic experience for her and she has been practicing ever since. To deepen her practice she attended Yoga Works' 200-hour training. Upon completion, she realized she wanted to pursue a career in health and wellness. Her classes are heavily rooted in form, breath, philosophy and most importantly, fun. She absolutely loves seeing her students grow and she is constantly inspired by their strength and dedication. When she's not practicing, she can be found riding her bike, walking her dog, or catching up with a friend over coffee.

Karen Pascual

I was first introduced to yoga in college, but didn’t get involved and more consistent in my practice until 2012. I was going through a transition period in my life and found yoga to be my salvation, I was going every day consistently when the studio I was attending was having their first yoga training, in which I completed my 200hr RYT through Yoga Alliance. From there I gained a ybarre and basic mat pilates certification and have been teaching these styles along with Vinyasa base yoga since. What you can expect in my class is emphasis on alignment, lots of high energy, and embracing that fire within! I fell in love with yoga because of how versatile it can be, and especially the incorporation of a mental, physical, and spiritual practice. Whether young, old, injured, unfamiliar or advanced- yoga addresses a variety of aspects one may be seeking for. Yoga takes you as you are, whole heartedly, and teaches the yogi to do the same. I want my students to have fun in my class, whatever level they may be, to explore their potential and progress past their limits. When incorporating barre/scuplt movements, there is an added high pace ambiance for those looking to condition themselves further by building strength and endurance. Let’s breathe, smile, and sweat!

He relocated to Los Angeles to follow is dream and passion for the arts and Yoga soon after.

“The Highlight of what I do as a yoga and fitness instructor is helping someone find a new connection and awareness with their body. The beautiful thing is that new connections happen all the time within class or private sessions. Seeing my students grow, seeing them build their own personal practice, seeing them find satisfaction with what their body is capable of doing and achieving…is the most bitchen’ part of my job. Its an honor to be a part of their transformation as my students find their true pontential and edge. Get ready to sweat”
