See what our graduates have to say!

“With humility, I can honestly say that I am a good teacher.  Not just good, but great.  And I owe this to you.  I lead students safely through a rigorous, fun and inspiring yoga practice.  I have been asked to infuse creativity into my sequencing and I do that well while keeping in mind that you need to build upon postures to prepare the body for more difficult postures.  Students often approach me after class and say they are grateful I warmed them up and how great they thought the class was!  It is an amazing, humbling, beautiful honor to be able to teach yoga and have that appreciation reflected back.  I know I so much more to learn and grow into as a teacher … I know I have only scratched the surface of yoga study.  It is a lifetime commitment." ~ Sarah H.
“Hot 8 Yoga Barre Teacher Training deepened my practice, increased awareness of my body, and provided a supportive environment to learn and grow. I would take this training over and over again.” ~ Valerie P.

"Hot Yoga Teacher training not only taught me how to teach yoga but also how to listen and communicate effectively. The teacher training is inspirational and makes everyone feel like they are part of a supportive community. I truly believe if everyone participated in a yoga teacher training the world would be a very different place."~ Patty P.
“Hot 8 Yoga teacher training has been one of the most inspiring and rewarding experiences. I've gained more knowledge and life lessons in 10 weeks than I have in years time. I am so incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity and will apply all I have learned into my everyday life.”~ Briana D.
“Hot 8 Yoga Teacher Training has made my lower back pain go away and my knee pain go away. If you put in the work and let the yoga do its job it will change your life.” ~ Alexis E.
 “Until this Teacher Training I had never in my life worked out on a consistent basis. This training toned my body, and my mind. I am able to focus easier. I came to this training wanting to help people heal. This training gave me the tools to do that.” ~ Gigi R.

Hot 8 Yoga Barre is inspired by the revolutionary exercise routine developed in London by the world-famous modern dancer, Lotte Berk and her orthopedist. Hot 8 Yoga Barre is a dynamic fusion of yoga, body sculpting, barre work, and non impact cardio that will get you long and lean. The class is filled with strengthening postures at the barre that works the legs and abdominals intensely fused with yoga postures on the mat to release and lengthen from the barre work. This class is a cardiovascular program of isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches. Yoga Barre will tone your buttocks, abdominals, thighs, and arms. It will also improve your posture and form a sculpted physique. With the use of your own body weight for resistance and through dynamic exercises, the muscles are targeted and overloaded to the point of fatigue, then stretched through our yoga series for release.
