Power 1 Community Class $8


This class is taught by:

Damara Titmus

Damara is a Los Angeles native who found a love for dance at the early age of seven. She studied ballet for many years under the direction of Patrick Franz, former Premier Danseur of the Paris Opera Ballet, and later graduated from Idyllwild Arts Academy under the direction of Jean-Marie Martz.
Her professional career brought her to Denver, Colorado for many years where she learned the importance of cross training to help her body recover from injuries and sustain her most valuable instrument, her body. After experiencing years of pain in her hips, she found Pilates, which helped her to regain her core strength and align her body more symmetrically. When she returned to Los Angeles, she found a way to combine this Pilates knowledge with her knowledge of ballet and began teaching a Lotte Berk inspired Barre workout for Pop Physique in 2015.
Damara was introduced to Hot 8 Yoga through friend and now Pasadena Yoga Director, Devon Riesenbeck. After taking her first Yoga Barre class with instructor Miriam, she was completely hooked. While the movements were all very familiar to her, there was something about the Hot 8 teaching style and vibe that resonated so deeply. She found herself leaving class more fulfilled and happy, letting go of her self-doubts and criticisms (a difficult task for a ballet dancer), not to mention feeling fantastic physically! Damara is excited to share her passion for movement and fitness with all of her students. She strives to provide an environment that is welcoming, safe, and fun. See you in class!

Kemi Oyemade

After graduating from USC in 2005, Kemi worked as a modeling agent with Photogenics at Smashbox studios. After leaving Photogenics in the summer of 2009 to take some time off, she came across the hot yoga studio where she took her first yoga class. After the first week she was hooked. In the summer of 2010 she completed a 200 hour training with Jason Wilkerson at Huntington Beach Hot Yoga. "I believe in the heat, and I believe in the focus and self awareness that hot yoga brings. I look forward to sharing hot yoga with seasoned and brand new yogis alike. Namaste'. "

Hunter Haliniak

From Honolulu, Hawaii, Hunter grew up playing competitive athletics. He received a partial scholarship to play division 1 volleyball at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and continued to play competitively afterwards. What Hunter loved about competitive athletics was that it gave him the ability to escape the 'mind stuff' he tended to put himself through on the day to day. Hunter describes this feeling as "athletic samadhi" where nothing existed outside of being in that moment, in that time, in between the lines of the court. Eventually losing interest in the competitive side of athletics, Hunter yearned to find a practice that was both meditative and athletic that would allow him to reach that mind space once more. He found that mind space after taking a 26-2 hot yoga class taught by Fracesca Asuma at Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills. Not only was he physically and mentally challenged by the practice, he was jolted spiritually as well. From that point on, Hunter's yoga journey began. With 200 hours of teacher training certification through Hot 8 Yoga in both 26-2 (Francesca Asuma) and Hot Power Fusion (Deanna Ainsworth), Hunter is passionate about sharing Yoga with anyone who wants to practice with him. Come on in to Hot 8 Yoga, bring your mat, sweat a lot, and let Hunter help you find your moment of 'samadhi!'
