This class is taught by:

Star Rader

Star Rader is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher with over 1,000 hours of training and is certified in Vinyasa flow, Yin, and Barre by Bianca Fearon, Mia Togo, and Nancy Norby at Yoga Works and Hot 8 Yoga. She continues to take workshops around the world and is currently completing a second 300-hour mentorship.

A yoga practitioner and dancer since childhood, Star’s approach identifies that no two bodies are alike, so mindfulness and focus towards understanding proper alignment and personal anatomy/injuries are key to developing a strong and safe practice – while self inquiry and the willingness to honestly reflect on what you discover about yourself can bring about an experience that serves your spiritual body to keep you growing and inspired.

Star teaches Power 1 at Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills on Sundays at 10:30am.

Lisa Patino

Lisa stepped into her first yoga class over 15 years ago. She found the practice to be so challenging yet she continued to land on her mat day after day. As her body became stronger, she noticed there were just as many emotional benefits to the practice as there were physical. It was much easier to manage stress, anxiety and daily life.
After relocating to Los Angeles from Texas, her home state, she decided to take her practice one step further. In 2013, she completed her first 500 hr teacher training. Forever a student, Lisa continues to educate herself when ever possible. She believes that every class is a new experience and a opportunity to learn and feel something new. By connecting with her students, she has created a style of teaching that encourages everyone to embrace the uniqueness of their own bodies. From beginner to advanced, Lisa’s classes are accessible to everyone. While finding strength in the body, Lisa also challenges her students mentally. By finding the balance of physical and mental strength, Lisa creates a space of security and infinite possibility.

Sarah Helt, E-RYT200
Certified Yoga Instructor + Accessible Yoga Ambassador

My yoga journey began at 18 when a friend suggested I try a class at the local gym. It happened to be an Ashtanga primary series and from that day forward I was hooked! However, it wasn’t until my last year of college, when my clowning and movement studies professor asked if I would assist his summer yoga intensive, that I started to consider teaching.

My initial 200 hour yoga training was in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia in multi-style vinyasa, viniyoga, and incorporated thai massage. I began my yoga career in Chicago, Illinois where, in my first two years, I was lucky enough to help open five different boutique yoga spaces. Primarily a power vinyasa and restorative-yin yoga teacher, my life changed completely when I was contacted by a high profile triathlon coach to work with her disabled athletes. I was introduced to the true therapeutic benefits of yoga for recovery, pain management, and trauma. I work with students who have, and have had, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, visual impairments, spinal chord injury, chronic pain, and/or nerve damage. Last year I partnered with the Accessible Yoga Movement in Santa Barbara to become one of the organization’s first Accessible Yoga Ambassadors.

I approach life with an open heart and zero expectations; as I believe you should approach every yoga class. I am overjoyed to share my practice with you. Come play!

Kristyn Chalker

After years of injuries from Bootcamp style workouts, Kristyn found her yoga practice, quite by accident, while looking for a lower impact way to keep her body moving. With a background in dance and gymnastics, Kristyn knew quite a few yogis, but never thought the practice fit in with her lifestyle. She was surprised and delighted to find out just how wrong she was. After stepping onto her mat for the first time in 2011, Kristyn found her home in the breath, movement, and peace that yoga brings.

Kristyn believes ardently in the mind/body connection, and views the practice as a way to transcend the mundane aspects of every day life. Her passion for teaching comes from the necessity to share with her students the joy and lightness yoga has brought into her own life.

Tessa Rapa

Tessa Rapaczynski's approach to yoga is pluralistic and non-dogmatic. While her practice is rooted in the Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga traditions, her methodology is influenced by modern science, as well as both Eastern and Western philosophy.

Tessa believes that yoga is a practice of self-study by experience, and considers herself a life-long student. Introduced to yoga at a young age, she has practiced over the years at studios in NYC, London, Berlin, and LA where Tessa completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training course at Hot 8 Yoga. She is a graduate of Columbia University, and holds an MA in Modernist English Literature from Oxford.

Will Staten


Im originally from Texas and am a lifelong soccer player and all around athlete. My life revolved around physical fitness and being active. Over the years a series of injuries limited me so much, that I could barely jog without experiencing pain. After running out of non-surgical options to rebuild strength and flexibility, I stumbled into a yoga class.

What started out as a way to get back on the field slowly evolved into a way of life. I learned there's much more to this practice than just the physical aspects. I learned to not let the big picture slow you down, but instead, to appreciate life moment by moment and to be thankful for who I am now. Yoga has changed me in ways I could never have imagined.

This greater understanding was the spark that made me want to become a yoga teacher. My goal is to help others unlock the benefits of yoga, both physical and mental. I want to help folks stop and smell the roses and appreciate the greatness that lies within.

Kathleen Cruger

Kathleen originally came to yoga as an additional form of exercise. It wasn't until after practicing for a few weeks did she notice a mental and emotional shift in her life, and a positive change in the way she interacted with the world around her. Yoga quickly became part of her lifestyle, and she is overwhelming grateful for the ability to share her passion and knowledge as an instructor. She recognizes the tremendous amount of benefits a regular yoga practice can bring into one's life, and encourages everyone to give it a try. Her focus while teaching is to provide a safe, judgement-free zone, where both new and seasoned yogis alike can dive deeper into their practice and develop a strong connection with their mind, body, and spirit both on and off the mat.

Poopack Bral

Poopack has been practicing Yoga ever since she took her first class in 2002. Her passion for Yoga has evolved over the years as her mat has become her best friend. She continues to practice daily and is always searching for beautiful things in life to inspire her teaching skills. She is a graduate of the 500 hour teacher training program through YogaWorks. Poopack truly believes that Yoga can heal everyone, as well as encourage beginning students. She recognizes different levels and strengths and strives to accommodate all of her students. Poopack's Yoga classes are energetic, fun, constructive, and passionate as well as a fantastic workout. Her love of life, family, and of course Yoga are all integrated into her practice and teach. Namaste.

Téo Chapelier

Born and raised in South of France, Téo has always been eager for adventure. At the age of 18 he left his country and travelled the world for 4 years, always looking for the next place to go. His path led him to Los Angeles, California where he discovered the art of yoga and finally found balance in his life. Since then, his passion keeps growing stronger with each passing day. Yoga allows him to align himself with his true Self. As a teacher and student, he is humbled every time he get to share his practice and help others ensuing possibility for growth and transformation. By committing to a daily practice he knows that we create new patterns of light and abundance in our lives, we learn to study our own mind and body in our quest for the true Self. Yoga brought out the best in him and he is excited to share it with you.

Dev Rice

Everyone is welcome in the classes that I get to lead. There's no judgement allowed, of self or others, as your practice is not the same as that of the person next to you. We'll focus on the breath, as a way to still the "fluctuations" of the mind, and we'll celebrate the incremental and individual successes that slowly build to create your own, very unique, yoga journey. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or brand-spanking new, there's always more to discover, always a way to move deeper. My own yoga journey has been a long one, one that has taught me, among other things, to not take things for granted, to live in the center and to keep moving forward.

Katy Impellizzeri

Katy fell in love with yoga after floating out of her first savasana. She has always been intrigued by the elaborate systems that make up the human body along with it’s deep connection to the mind, breath, and soul. Physical asana practice and meditation opened windows and doors in her mind that she never even knew existed. That, and her natural tendency to ask ‘why?’, led to her first 200-hour teacher training where she began to dive deeper into the practice and her Self.

Now a certified E-RYT 500 teacher, she shares her perspective in public & private yoga classes and workshops all over the country. She also volunteers her time teaching kids of all ages and walks of life in schools and community centers.

Forever a student, Katy hopes to inspire anyone and everyone (in her class or not) to discover their full potential and live a life full of happiness, health, peace and love.

Always enjoy good vibes and good beats in her strong & steady vinyasa classes and her grounding yin classes. Flirt with the connection between breath and movement to maybe discover some hidden doors and windows of your own…

Nicole Avendano

Born and raised in Miami, FL. Her love for yoga began when she first moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2011. After landing at Hot 8 Yoga, she immediately fell in love and quickly became a part of the Hot 8 Yoga community. As a young child that grew up physically active, she believes that it wasn't until she found yoga that she truly understood how to feel comfortable in her own body. The combination of both the physical and the spiritual connection she felt was what got her attention. She was able to apply the lessons she learned in the yoga room both on and off her mat! Always in search for improvement and self discovery, Nicole decided to embark on the journey of becoming a yoga teacher. She completed her 200 hour certification and since then has been dedicated to create a safe space for other people to connect with their spiritual power, feel comfortable in their bodies, and just have fun!

Eddy Rimada

My approach to yoga is understanding that only with a strong committed daily practice, overcoming and pushing through the urge to let the pose overcome you, can one only then begin to shed the layers of the ego that have been holding us back from becoming our truest self leading every decision with an unconditionally loving open heart.
