Hot Vinyasa Yoga

This class is taught by:

Marina B

To say that yoga saved Marina's life would be a huge understatement.
In 2008 she was diagnosed with a rare and serious autoimmune disease which left her paralyzed and blind in on eye. After several months of healing her physical body, she embarked on a spiritual healing journey and Yoga knocked on her door.
Everything changed for Marina after that very first yoga class back in 2009. Shortly after that she completed her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training at Atmananda yoga in NYC. Later that year Marina and her now, 2 teenage daughters decided to live adventurously and move to the Jungles of Costa Rica where they lived,played and enjoyed all that life had to offer.
In Costa Rica Marina became a certified 1&2 Reiki Master. Along with Yoga and Reiki Marina led and assisted many workshops and retreats in a spiritual community where her and her daughters lived for 2 years.
She thrives on being a yoga teacher and hopes to help others through the healing of yoga, as it once healed her!

Elizabeth Feygina

Liz graduated with her 200 hour certificate from Laughing Lotus yoga school in NYC in 2015 and an additional 200 intensive from Vinyasa Yoga School in Rishikesh, Indian in 2016. Growing up very active as a child in Ukraine and a teenager in NYC, she always saw her body as a temple. After graduating from Rosalind Franklin University at North Chicago in 2009 with a Masters in Health Science Pathologists' Assistant, she moved back to NYC to be closer to family. As a Pathologists' Assistant, Liz sees what diseases can do to organs and body systems on a daily basis. Most of these ailments are caused by inactivity and poor diet. As a student of yoga, she noticed great physical but also stress-reducing calming benefits of her yoga practice and decided to teach this beautiful practice to others. Liz’s enthusiasm for body awareness and body acceptance through yoga can be deeply felt in every class. Non-harming of our bodies, those around us and animals is where she draws her inspiration and finds peace. She loves to teach beginners about yoga, alignment and Vinyasa style flow sequences. Her teaching style is passionate, vibrant and joyful. Liz's sequences can be felt through the body as each pose is addressed with some points of anatomy and benefits to our overall health. Students who want to be assisted in the poses and feel more grounded will get great hands on guidance to feel more connected to their bodies, minds and spirits.

Liz loves how yoga can start conversations, build community and help people live better lives. She is influenced by master yogis who spread the word of yoga as a healing practice that should be accessible to everyone. You are never too old, sick or tired to start practicing yoga.

Molly Weprin

Yoga is the union of breath, body and mind.
Molly is a 1000 hour certified hatha, vinyasa + yin yoga instructor who is humbled to share her love of asana by guiding others through their own journeys to explore this relationship, creating balance to quiet the mind and nourish the soul.
Her trainings in Ashtanga, Iyengar & Hatha traditions lay the groundwork for her classes, combining fluid sequencing with breath awareness and balance to create mindful movement.
Her education is strongly rooted in foundations of yoga therapy and hatha yoga with attention to precision and alignment, so each class is keenly in tune with the body with respect to symmetry and maintaining spinal integrity. She strives to create an experience of consciousness and spaciousness that is both challenging and accessible to all levels of experience, and her love of music shines through in each class.
First and foremost Molly is a student. The practice of yoga in her life extends far beyond the mat and she is grateful for the opportunity to honor her teachers by sharing this with students at Hot Spot Yoga, and hopes to inspire this same love in each one of them.

Paula Loose

Having grown up in New England and attending a Quaker school Paula realized yoga had always been a part of her life, she just hadn’t realized it until she moved to New York City in January 2000.
She spent countless Fridays as a kid sitting in silent meeting wondering what the point was. Once she moved to New York and took her first yoga class she realized Meditation came in many forms and yoga was all around her. Being an ex athlete with a hand full of injuries she began to practice daily and discovered a new found love which took the place of all those hours spent in the gym.
Completing her 500 hour certification with Bryn Chrisman and Stacey Brass of Yogamaya in 2012, Paula is always excited to share her knowledge of the practice and yogic philosophy. Her classes are creative, strong, alignment based and of course, full of her love for underground music. Paula continues to stay busy teaching weekly classes, doing workshops, leading teacher trainings and taking on other yoga related projects as well as spending time with her two dogs Ripley and Lindo a pit bull and pit bull husky mix.

Anna Krasnovskaya

Hot Spot Yoga was Anna's home studio since she started to practice Yoga, here she got inspired to learn more about Yoga.
She received her 200h RYT training with Bryn Chrisman and Stacey Brass at Yogamaya New York in August 2016.
She teaches Vinyasa yoga, with great attention to correct alignment of the poses (so powerfully presented by B.K.S Iyengar). She believes that it's the details that complete the fine yoga asana practice. Her goal is to make students feel safe and feel better after taking her Yoga classes.
Anna is certain that yoga asana practice based on careful attention to right alignment done regularly over a period of time can heal a person.

Iryna Danyliv

With her playful sequence Iryna, tries to challenge her students to find effort and ease in an every pose, to find comfort in discomfort and move forward.

No attachments, no expectations, no labels, no stereotypes. The purpose of yoga is to discover who we truly are, to bring us back to our true Atman. All the answers to all our questions are within us, we just have to sit still and listen.

May intuition always be your guide. You are perfect the way you are right now. Practice and all is coming.
