HOT Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)


This class is taught by:

Gemma Golden

Gemma is a certified yoga instructor with a focus on alignment based principles to assist with maximizing the full potential in each yoga pose. She received her initial 200-hour training from Yogadharma in 2003 and is currently deepening her yoga studies in a 300-hour Level II training, focusing on the energetics of optimally aligned asanas and applied therapeutics. Gemma came to yoga as a way to recover from persistent back pain following back surgery. Through the practice she found a safe way to build strength and heal her own body. As a teacher Gemma breaks down the instructions for each posture with focus on alignment and breath, fostering an accessible practice for anyone that shows up on the mat.
 

Nancy DeMarco

Nancy began the practice of yoga in an effort to decrease the stress and anxiety she faced while participating in The Game of Life. She felt the peace and freedom that she achieved while on her mat could be incorporated in other aspects of her life. So she rolled the dice, took the detour and signed up for yoga teacher training. The game has never been the same since. All of her classes incorporate the principals of alignment with a strong focus on the breath, body and mind connection. Nancy’s sense of humor and compassion for her students is prevalent in all of her classes. Knowledge of the TV show Seinfeld is a plus, but not a requirement. Nancy received her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance teacher certificate from Onyx Yoga Studio in 2017 and Reiki Level I training. She is grateful to the many teachers that have inspired her along her journey, especially Shannon Elliott, Jane Lindemann and Gabi Percario for their wealth of knowledge, love and laughter that they have shared with her. Come play the Game of Life with Nancy and laugh, restore and renew!
Vinyasa Flow yoga taught in a heated environment, 100+ degrees 40%+ humidity. HOT Vinyasa classes move through yoga postures and sequences at a rigorous pace. A prior yoga practice and knowledge of basic postures is assumed given the extreme conditions. Come prepared to sweat and move, although traditional yogic chanting, breathwork, philosophy and meditation are often included also. Bring a non skid towel for your mat, hydrate well prior to class and bring water. Also, dry clothes and/or coverup for after class is advisable. We recommend that true beginners should start in Beginner Basics (regular temperature) or Warm Slow Flow before diving into HOT Vinyasa.
