Hot Hatha


This class is taught by:

Adam Riehl

Adam found his love for teaching cats how to juggle fire when he was a young boy. He grew up in the forgotten streets of Houston. Adam always had a love for both cats and, well, fire. He first started out pretty ambitiously. He thought he could teach a cat how to shoot fire. After the second cat tragedy, he was back to the drawing board. He thought long and hard......What are cats good at? They're pretty good with their feet! And so the idea of teaching cats how to juggle fire began. This has been a long road for Adam and the cats. There have been many highs and lows, but they are now enjoying their successes!! You can book "Adam and his AMAZING JUGGLING GATOS" for most events, weddings and birthday parties (No clowns though. They weird me out...with their big shoes and red noses. My nose doesn't make a noise when I squeeze it and yours shouldn't either sir). But I digress. 

Just Kidding. Obviously Adam has a good sense of humor!

Adam started doing yoga in 2012 due to lower back pain and an excess of free time. His practice soon turned into a passion. His yoga practice has helped him lose weigh, gain flexibility and conquer his back issues. In 2015, Adam received his 200 RYT through Open Up! Yoga with Danielle Zissou. Since then, he has enjoyed the journey of teaching and continuing to find meaning in his own practice. He is an interactive teacher, with challenging flows and energeticly calm classes.

Thang Nguyen

Thang, “Tang”, is a transportation engineer that loves being outdoor and with nature. His hobby includes climbing, backpacking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, biking, running and photography. Thang started studying and practicing yoga in 2000 to relieve his shoulder and neck injuries from multiple car accidents and as a replacement for his martial art practice. His yoga practice includes a daily 2 hour sitting meditation practice. The benefits of yoga has motivated him to share the yoga practice with others. He began teaching in 2006 privately and at work and got his yoga alliance certification in 2009. Thang strongly believes the yoga practice is incomplete without the mindfulness practice, “yoga without mindfulness is just another physical exercise”. He incorporates mindfulness practice in his yoga classes and trains new teachers how to incorporate mindfulness in their teaching. Thang also teaches meditation workshops at various yoga studios to raise money for his favorite non-profit organizations. Thang teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin yoga, Yogasport, and Myofascial yoga ball; he is also involved with yoga teacher training at various studios.

Kami Betker

Kami graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy Tempe, AZ in 2003 with an 800 hour massage therapy certificate. After a brief period of massage in Arizona, Kami moved back to her home state of Washington, to start her career in massage therapy. She has worked in many settings from spa to clinical practice, but her passion has been in injury rehabilitation and deep tissue therapies.
In 2006 Kami's journey to becoming a yoga instructor began. She found herself in her first hot yoga class. Excited about the physical benefits of hot yoga, she never expected to have her life changed. She walked away from her first class thinking, “That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” Within a couple weeks she noticed the definite physical changes as well as a new mental clarity and calmness.
By 2010 Kami knew she wanted to share her passion for yoga with others. By April that year, Kami had earned her 200 hour RYT, and was on her way to sharing the gift of yoga. It is her goal to inspire others by leading with example, “I don’t have the best physical practice, but that’s what yoga is about. No judgment for myself or others.”
Through Be One Yoga Kami is able  merge her two passions in life, yoga and massage therapy. Helping people better their whole selves.

Jo Parsons

Jo teaches yoga because she herself has healed so much of her own life with yoga, and she wants to teach others that they can do the same. A lifelong battle with depression, anxiety, and weight issues led Jo to try yoga 14 years ago, and her life was completely changed forever! She started teaching yoga full time after completing her Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste at the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute in 2006. She also completed an extensive course on giving hands-on adjustments called Teacher Assistant Program (T.A.P.) at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga with Master Baptiste Teacher Lisa Black. Her newest love is Yin Yoga and she completed her Yin Yoga certification with Bernie Clark November 2015. Slowing down and “BE-ing” is what Jo loves about yin yoga (a slower, deeper, gentler style of yoga that targets and strengthens the connective tissues of the body – mainly the joints). Yin yoga helped Jo heal her own body that she felt was wearing down from so many years of living a very active life. The two styles of yoga perfectly complement each other to create more balance not just in body, but in our souls too. Jo's ability to connect with her students and understand their suffering, and their triumphs (emotional, physical, and spiritual) is as unique as she is. Her classes are fun, inspirational, light-hearted yet challenging, and filled with love, music, and soul!

Chuck Betker

Chuck moved to Arizona in 2002 to pursue an education in massage therapy. It didn’t take long to realize this was what he was meant to do. In fall 2003 Chuck graduated from the Arizona School Of Massage Therapy Tempe, AZ with an 800 hour massage certificate. In spring 2004 Chuck returned to Washington State working for several months in a clinical setting, before deciding to lease space from a local health club running a successful practice until the health club closed. Chuck’s passion is fitness oriented clients, helping them maintain peak performance through the benefits of massage therapy.
