Hot Power Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Christine Bennett

I started practicing yoga over 12 years ago. To be honest it was the HOT before the word yoga that really caught my attention. I was an avid athlete and fitness enthusiast and loved the heat. I had no idea that first class would change me forever, and I’m so grateful. I practiced as much as possible. With two kids it was a challenge but provided a much needed physical and mental break from hectic days. Using skills from my former career in banking, I began doing the books for a studio. Being around yoga on a regular basis fueled my love for the practice until I finally decided to become a teacher. I finished my CPT for fitness and yoga instruction in 2011 and love being able to share my passion with others. Life’s chaotic and not always controllable, but it’s how you handle the chaos that matters. For me practicing yoga helps prep me for life…it’s the calm in the center of the storm.

Jeni Tracy

“I started my hot yoga journey in 2009. After a few classes, I found it to be the first exercise I look forward to doing and the only one I miss when I can't practice. I have found my passion and its hot YOGA. I left my classes exhausted, but smiling. I kept coming back to experience that feeling of accomplishment. Now that feeling of accomplishment has become fuel in my life. I practice and teach yoga now not only for that feeling, I practice yoga because it continues to teach me about myself, how to process my thoughts, determination, patience, and relaxation. I feel healthy. I feel strong. I love yoga and yoga teaches me how to love myself.
In 2010 I attended a weekend immersion with Baron Baptiste in Canada. At that point I’d only taken a few Power classes but what I got from that weekend was extraordinary and helped me realize I wanted to teach.
In June 2011 I traveled to Mexico to complete my Level 1 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Training. It was an amazing experience and what a gift to give myself! In 2012, I attended Level 2 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Training in New York. In April 2013 I attended a weekend TAP program for Assisting. In May 2013 I attended another weekend immersion with Baron again where I continued to deepen my practice and my love of it. In August 2014 I traveled to Canada to complete Baptiste’s Art of Assisting program.
I had the opportunity to learn how to teach Kids Yoga in 2013. What a gift to be able to teach these young minds how to breath and move their bodies!
In June 2015 lululemon Athletica named me their Alderwood Mall Ambassador. This is a huge honor for me as it allows me to get more involved in my community and touch more lives through the practice and discipline of yoga!
In July 2015 I became a 200 hour Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor.
Outside the hot room I'm an accountant and a mother of two beautiful children. What a gift to be able to practice yoga with my husband and children. What a life! Namaste~”

Anna Johnson

Anna is a Baptiste trained power Vinyasa yoga teacher who enjoys assisting students and teaching a challenging class but one that is accessible to yogis at all levels. Anna has additional training in sequence building, assisting, as well as arm balances and inversions. She knew when she began re-arranging her work schedule around yoga that it was time to change her focus, so left a career in book publishing to teach. She finds teaching deeply rewarding and dedicates herself to helping students find "breakthroughs", on their mat and in their lives. Anna believes deeply is the power of yoga to change your life! She lives in Kenmore with her husband, two children and best furry friend, Champ. She enjoys reading, time with friends and family, and breathing in the fresh Pacific Northwest air.

Shanah Walter

Shanah Walter was drawn to yoga as a teenager because its focus on each individual's practice and non-competitive nature were a great pair for her since she lacked coordination and athleticism in the more traditional sense. While she enjoyed team sports, they never really enjoyed her, so she turned to running and yoga at the age of 15. After the birth of her second son, Shanah came back to yoga to lose baby weight and find a moment of quiet. She tried Hot Yoga for the first time and immediately fell in love. In 3 months she found a total transformation in her mind and body. She signed up for teacher training after encouragement from her husband, Eric, who had also seen the positive changes in Shanah and the joy it brought her. She took Core Power Yoga's 200 hr power vinyasa teacher training, then subsequently has been trained in Yoga Sculpt and Hot Power Fusion. In an ironic turn, the yoga that Shanah was drawn to because she lacked athleticism has resulted in greater coordination, balance and strength and her classes reflect her passion for a rigorous and playful practice. When Shanah is not on her mat, she is most often playing with her two little boys, Jackson (5) and Holden (3), wine tasting with friends, or spending time with her favorite person, her husband Eric.
