I initially came to Hot 8 to take advantage of the free week of classes to motivate myself to get back into yoga, while giving myself the added challenge of practicing in the heat; what I found was something much more special. Hot 8 immediately drew me in with the beautiful & authentic energy that each instructor brought to his or her class, and the sense of community that I found myself walking into every time I stepped onto my mat. Having been a space of growth and transformation for me during a pivotal time in my life, Hot 8 has continued to be my home away from home.
The more I committed to my practice, the more invested and dedicated I became to the idea of moving with intention and integrity. I found myself wanting to deepen my practice further and learn how to guide others to work more mindfully on & off of their mats. Feeling a connection with Yoga Barre in particular, I completed my Yoga Barre certification in 2017 under the incredible guidance and mentorship of Nancy Norby and Briana DeFalco. I am so honored and excited to join the Hot 8 family and hold space with the community in a practice that I love so much. My goal is to provide a space that benefits everyone's intentions: whether that intention is to have a great workout, mental detox, or anything in between; and to encourage the practice of setting an intention for yourself to carry off the mat as well. Look forward to seeing you at the Barre!
