Hot Vinyasa


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.

Katy Tavog

Katy has been practicing yoga since 2005 and began teaching in 2009, after attending Baron Baptiste Level 1 Teacher Training. Katy continued her training by attending Level 2 with Baron Baptiste, and Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Bernie Clark. Initially attracted to yoga by the heat and the challenge, Katy soon learned the benefits of yoga are much deeper than just physical. Yoga has helped Katy to embrace change and to accept the things she cannot change.
With a background in competitive gymnastic coaching and judging and outdoor fitness training, Katy found teaching yoga a natural progression. She feels everything she has done so far in her life has led her to this point, to teaching yoga. Incredibly lucky to be surrounded by so many inspiring teachers and students, Katy looks forward to learning more about yoga, learning more about herself, and inspiring her students to transform their limitations into power!

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.

Elena Radic

Elena has always been passionate about health and fitness. Being an avid runner for many years and feeling its affects, she turned to yoga for healing.
It was in 2007 that solidified her yoga practice as she used it to recovery from disc surgery. Wanting to share her passion, she earned her 200 hour teaching certification in 2010, and kids teaching certification from Next Generation Yoga. Elena aspires to create unity, through teaching compassion and kindness to ourselves and others, empowering children as well as adults through the essence of yoga.
She enjoys attending workshops and trainings to continually bring new and inspiring ideas to her students. With her soothing nature and trusted presence in the room, Elena leads a class to challenge, inspire, and evoke each student’s personal best.

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!

Suzanne Hite

Interested in body mechanics and the unending layers of her yoga practice, Suzanne attended a teacher training simply to enhance her personal yoga practice. Mesmerized by the anatomy and technique she learned, she found herself teaching to share her joy, passion and knowledge.

Using simple language, Suzanne creates balanced, precise classes without being tedious. Through her approach, students tune in to body and mind. She creates an opportunity to relish in a practice that reduces stress, embraces your uniqueness and allows you revel in life a little more.

When Suzanne isn't enjoying time with her family, taking in an action flick or reading, you'll find her on her mat. She still consistently finds herself in workshops and trainings to stay fresh and inspired with Jason Crandell and Troy Lucero as her main influences.

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.
A fun and dynamic flow based yoga that links movements with breath to create balance in body and mind. Vinyasa places an emphasis on core and upper body strength, while toning and increasing flexibility throughout the whole body.
