Beach Yoga


This class is taught by:

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.
 

Raquel Le Roux

Yoga has been a part of Raquel's life since 1999, when she began practicing Hatha at a small studio in San Diego, California. After receiving her 200hour Yoga Teaching Certification from La Jolla Yoga Center in 2010 she began teaching immediately. She continued her studies in a 100hour Yoga Immersion at Yoga Tree San Francisco.
Before moving to New York Raquel spent two years teaching in the South of France to an international yoga community. She studied yoga, practiced and taught at Sohum Yoga Shala Antibes, France. While in France she also expanded her knowledge of the French language. She recently returned to the United States and resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Raquel draws from the Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga traditions. She combines energetic movement and breath in mindfully aligned postures to create full mind-body connection on the mat. She also incorporates meditation, flow sequences and deep stretching. In her class you will find a fun environment to practice in and be able leave with more body awareness along with a peaceful mind.

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!

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.
