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!

Chauncie Parchment

Chauncie has been a dancer for 11 years and has trained at the American Ballet Dance Theater for 2 years. In 2014 he stopped dancing and found yoga one year later. Since then yoga has been his passion and has even brought him back to dance.

Chauncie has been practicing Asana since 2012 and practices pranayama and meditation daily. He has 600 hours of teacher training in both hatha and vinyasa yoga. His classes are challenging but achievable. He teaches a blend of Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Dharma. His sequence blends the traditions of yoga and bridges the gap between the styles.

Molly Weprin

Yoga is the union of breath, body and mind.
Molly is an 800 hour certified 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.

Nikolay Ignatyev

Yoga accidentally came into my life when I was in college, pursuing a major in biochemistry...which I was not particularly interested in. I drifted through college life aimlessly, until somehow needing to fulfill a requirement I took a class in religion and the class was on Hinduism.
My professor, Vishwa Adluri, re-ignited me, suddenly things became clear and I knew that I wanted to study philosophy and religion. Hindu traditions appealed to me for it offered a practical way of coming to realization of the state that all of these traditions pointed to and so I decided to explore.
Half a year into taking yoga classes I decided to go deeper and took my first 200 hour training with Sri Dharma Mittra and a few months later, 500 hour at Atmananda Yoga Sequence.
I believe that yoga is self-explanatory. One does not have to be philosophically inclined to experience what yoga offers, consistency in practice, patience, and desire to learn will bring about the desired result.

Badri Zarakiadze

Badri is a certified Sivananda Yoga teacher. He has studied within different schools and practices for over 10 years.
He encourages students to tune in to the vibrations of each asana, unravel the connections between proper alignment, conscious movement and intention, listening to the breath and feeling the body. Classes are infused with pranayama and meditation.
"Through the path of yoga we connect to our full potential, work with any obstacle and limitations with Love!"

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.

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.
