Hot Vinyasa

This class is taught by:

Laura Sinclair

I moved to Washington from Illinois in 2004 with my family and absolutely love it here. My professional background is business
development and sales. With over 10+ years working in the corporate world I found myself dreading going to work every day.
Although I was great at what I did, it wasn’t my passion. I remember numerous phone calls to my boyfriend about how miserable
I was and he said, well, what would make you happy? I responded with, honestly… teaching full time.
I have my 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate and have been teaching Hot Yoga since May of 2009. When I teach, I want my clients to get a great workout but also to find themselves again. Yoga allows you to slip into a place of
meditation, relaxation and where for 1 hour you have zero worry, zero concern of what you left at the doors when you walked in.
My students will be those that are at the beginning of their fitness and wellness journey as well as mid to senior level enthusiasts.
I want my personal training or group fitness to help clients accomplish things they never thought they could. Provide them with
challenging and inspiring workouts where they can see physical change quickly and continually. Everyone comes in with different
fitness levels and I welcome everyone.

Jessica Jones

When my journey with yoga began 7 years ago, I had no idea how deeply and profoundly it would enrich my life. For the first time in many years, I developed a sense of peace and ease in my own mind. I even started to feel a love for and belief in myself that I hadn't felt since childhood. I was instantly hooked and it became my new form of daily medicine. My journey is no where near complete as I am always learning and evolving in my own exploration of life and of the practice. My studies led me to become certified as a 200hr vinyasa trained yoga teacher, an Ayurveda health coach and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Currently I am working on earning my 500hr yoga certification. I believe that health is holistic and it requires active participation in being mindful about how we move our bodies, what we think, feel and eat. My classes reflect this understanding by selecting what is right for our bodies energetically depending on the season, time of day, or what's going on around the world. I also believe in body positivity and in practicing in a way that feels healing for your body, and not in a way that is painful or aggressive. I am also trained in Aerial yoga, SUP yoga, Prison Yoga, and Myofascial Release. My goal is for my students to leave feeling strong, empowered, open and connected to their radiant joyful truth. When I'm not on my yoga mat, you can find me in the kitchen, on an adventure, or hanging out with my son and husband!

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!

Adam Riehl

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.

Zach Halley

Zach began practicing yoga in 2009 after his girlfriend (and now fiancé) dragged him along to a hot 90-minute power class. After surviving that class, Zach began to work yoga into his routine and enjoyed all of the benefits, both physical and mental. As a means to deepen his practice, Zach took teacher training in 2011 and began teaching shortly after and ever since. Zach really enjoys seeing the growth and transformation of his students, and cherishes the relationships he has developed through yoga. Zach taught yoga in the Bellingham area while earning a Bachelor’s degree in finance from Western Washington University. After graduating in 2013, Zach moved back to the Seattle area. During business hours, Zach is an international accountant. His real passion is teaching and taking yoga. Outside of work and yoga, Zach lives with his fiancé and two large dogs, Carly and Thor. Zach knows that yoga will always and forever be a part of life.

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.
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.
