This class is taught by:

Keon Saghari

Keon Saghari has a passion for movement and connecting with people in her community. Her initial interest in becoming a yoga instructor stemmed from her career in contemporary dance. Hot yoga quickly became Keon's favorite form of cross training while she was touring and performing with various dance companies in San Francisco. The benefits were so powerful that she couldn't resist her desire to help others achieve the same results. In 2013, Keon received her Bikram Yoga certification through Bikram Choudhury. She committed herself to teaching this practice with love and care; combining all of her previous knowledge of the body and movement to teach a class that is fun, informative, meditative, and healing. In 2017, Keon added Inferno Hot Pilates (high intensity low impact interval training using Pilates principals) to her roster of teaching. Having just moved to Los Angeles in 2018, Keon hopes to continue her education in various yoga practices, meet more people in her new yoga community, and is very excited to be apart of the Hot 8 family!

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.

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
This class is a 60 minute set sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. There are 2 sets of the standing series and 1 set of the floor series. Class is composed of a standing series followed by a floor series where each posture is done twice. Through discipline and structure, this class allows students to gain strength, flexibility and balance. Conducted without music, 26 & 2 assists in developing the concentration needed for meditation and proper alignment. 🔥 🔥
