Shanai Erdem

I fell in love with Barre in my first practice, exactly the same way I fell in love first with yoga, and then with hot yoga. I knew I would be practicing it for the rest of my days. Being a yoga practitioner for over a decade, an instructor since 2014, and a big fan of dance, I was so excited to have found Barre that complemented my practice in every way. I love that Barre is more than just a workout and helps cultivate a mind body connection like yoga does while working every single muscle in my body. I believe in the transformational powers of Barre and Yoga wholeheartedly and am very passionate about sharing all the benefits. Seeing my students grow in their own practice is the most rewarding thing.

After a BA in Literature; Philosophy and Language Studies in Europe; some corporate work history; lots of traveling; and training in filmmaking and acting, I am happy that I found my way to LA and am excited to be a part of the Hot 8 Yoga community.

Chelsea Martin

Chelsea found yoga when she was 15 years old. Throughout the years, she used the yoga practice as a way to help relieve her anxiety and for more of a workout. A Florida native, she moved from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles to pursue a career in Fashion back in 2014. After four years at GUESS clothing, she realized the corporate world was not for her and decided to pursue her passion, enrolling in her 200-hour teacher training under Paige Held and Kelly Green at The Yoga Joint in South Florida. Chelsea has been greatly impacted by the yoga practice, going beyond the physical poses, helping her discover a deeper part of herself. Her classes are geared towards helping students push past their limits and discover their true potential while flowing through challenging sequences. The practice inspired her to help others in the same way the practice has helped her and she believes the real work begins as soon as you step off the mat.

Maks Akter

"The path of yoga is the path of self-discovery"- Amrit Desai. No matter where we come from or what we do, yoga is there to firmly ground us and help with this journey to our inner true self. I've been raised in LA for almost all my life and can understand how our sense of self can get a little foggy. Yoga has been helping me slowly peel through my layers and gain a stronger sense of self. I want to share and hope to inspire along the way as I go through this journey.

Maya Gorodetsky

As a young girl I dabbled in almost everything; swim teams, tennis, and gymnastics, but dancing was the only thing that stuck. For about 10 years of my childhood I was a competitive latin ballroom dancer. When I am posed the question of how I found yoga, I always come to the conclusion that yoga found me! I started truly practicing at the age of 16 and have not let it go since. For a teenage girl it provided me so much more than just a physical practice. To me yoga was my therapist, my coach, and my friend. I now find one of my hobbies being to educate and spread enlightenment on what yoga truly is and the endless benefits of the practice.Through yoga I found myself and a beautiful community. My classes will push you and test your strength physically and mentally. At the same time my classes are energetic and fun. Come make this practice your own and get your sweat on!
