Hot Yoga-1 hour


This class is taught by:

Chelsea Mallon

Chelsea Mallon started practicing yoga about a decade ago, but it wasn't until her discovery of the heat, and the loving, beautiful community at Hot 8 Yoga, that she became truly devoted to her yogic path. Chelsea is so glad that she began her journey through teaching training at Hot 8 Yoga. She derived a wealth of knowledge, and is very excited to radiate her passion for Hot Yoga to others. She graduated from USC with a double bachelor's degree in psychology and theatre. She has always been fascinated by the mind, body, and soul connection, and Hot Yoga gave her space to explore those interests in an experiential way that has been nothing short of life-changing. A few years ago after being involved in a bad car accident, she found herself with injuries, chronic pain, and anxiety like she'd never experienced before. She attributes Hot Yoga to being integral to her healing process, and would not have as many smiles or pain-free days were it not for this amazing practice. Because of the gifts- both internally and externally that she has received from Hot Yoga, she felt called to give back by becoming a teacher.
 
"I think that it's particularly important in a hot yoga practice to find the balance- effort and intensity are integral to this sequence, but so is stillness and listening to your body."~ Chelsea Mallon

Stephan Schubert

Stephan has been practicing yoga for some years now, but really fell in love with it and the sweat more recently in the Big Apple. Drawn to Hot Yoga by its athletic aspects he also found concentration and focus, something that helps him as a performer and a human being on many levels. After arriving in LA and finding the clarity, support and warmth (!) of Hot8, it was time to deepen the practice here; and Julia, Dakota and Brit have been wonderful teachers. He is excited about what this journey will bring next and to explore it with other practitioners, students and teachers.

Mathilde Powell

I was born and raised in Normandy, France. I settled down in Los
Angeles after calling Australia and Singapore my home.
Three kids later, it was time to get back in shape. As a cardio girl, I was
always sceptic about yoga. But, curiosity encouraged me to take my
first yoga class in 2011. It was "hell"; no balance, no focus... But, I loved
it !
I became very dedicated to my yoga practice. In 2015, I completed my
200 hours teacher training with Hot 8 Yoga under the guidance of
Francesca Asumah. I'm very happy to share this practice with others
and to be part of the Hot8Yoga community.
I teach a powerful class in which the physical challenges balance out the
mental benefits.

"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be
able to keep our mind strong and clear"

Karli McGuiness

Karli McGuiness is a 4th generation yogi from a line of Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Bikram Yoga teachers. She followed in her family’s footsteps in 2010 when she took part in the National Asana Competition and attended Bikram’s Teacher Training. She has been teaching internationally ever since. Although she respects and loves all styles of yoga, Bikram, Vinyasa and Yin yoga have had the most profound positive impacts on her life; making them an offering that she feels privileged to share with her students. Fascinated by the anatomical and biological benefits of yoga, Karli continues to research the latest scientific findings in order to enrich her teaching of the practice.

Karli has done a lot of independent research to discover why yoga is so effective on an anatomical level. Conducting interviews with Barnard and Columbia University neuroscientists and with “Pure Action” based in Texas, has aided in her goal to expand her love for yoga into the scientific realm. You'll see that some of her yoga influences like Vinyasa, Dharma, Ashtanga, and Restorative have a place in these sequences. She strongly believes that there is a big benefit from practicing all styles of yoga, whichever resonates with you!

Foundational class of 26 static postures balancing every system of the body with 2 sets of the standing series and 1 set of the floor series. Beginner to intermediate levels. Heated to 105-109 degrees.
