This class is taught by:

Brian Pittman

Brian started practicing Hot Yoga about 9 years ago from the advice of a friend.  He grew up playing sports, mainly soccer and snow skiing. He was a ski instructor for several years, realizing years ago that teaching others was something he had a passion for. Brian then got into Martial Arts. Studying Taekwondo, Kung-Fu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Brian also likes to spend time writing songs and playing music, as well as an occasional game of golf. Brian also has a passion for traveling and experiencing life to it's fullest. He has backpacked in over 35 countries to date because of a burning desire to understand the world and his place in it. Yoga has not only helped Brian with his ailments from many years of being active, but also helped him on his spiritual journey as well. “Only those who practice yoga actively can understand the positive effects it has on the entire mind, body and spirit”. Loving yoga and knowing his passion for teaching others, combined with his desire to help others receive from yoga the same benefits that he has, Brian decided to go to Baron Baptiste Level 1 teacher training in August of 2010. He then went on to complete his Baptiste Level 2 training in May 2012. Brian is now a full time yoga teacher and he could not be happier, because..... “living your passions is the best gift you can give yourself” !

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!

Kara Stafford

Kara has a passion for movement and anatomy. Her love of movement began with dance and extended into teaching Pilates as an apprentice at the age of 17. A few years later, she was the youngest teacher to enter and complete the certification program from the Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. Kara's love of anatomy led to a certificate and career in diagnostic ultrasound but after working in the field for several years she realized how much she missed teaching movement. Kara came to yoga hoping to cope with stress, but she left with so much more: a peace and a sense of calm that she had never known before, as well as a physical challenge that was different from her previous forms of movement. After her first yoga class Kara knew she had to teach! There was no way she was going to keep this secret to herself. She completed Baptiste’s Level 1 teacher training program in 2012 and Tiffany Cruikshank’s (Yoga Medicine) 200-hour program in February of 2014. She is also certified and teaches Aerial Yoga Play and loves spending time hanging upside down! She is currently working towards her 500-hour certification with Jason Crandell. She enjoys studying various styles of Yoga from international and local master teachers. Combing love of movement and anatomical alignment, she hopes to spark and inspire joy and playfulness through her teaching. In addition to teaching, she is the owner and creator of her own custom yoga wear company, Zebra Mama Yoga.

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.
