Hot Yoga


This class is taught by:

Paulo Vincent-Brown

With a lifelong foundation of Mixed-Martial-Arts and classical ballet, Paulo was drawn to Yoga for its ability to hone the body, mind, and spirit. Paulo completed his 500-hour training, in his hometown of Los Angeles, with Yogaworks. Paulo believes his physical background and intensive Yoga training has prepared him to help anyone feel better about their body and their movement. Paulo moved to Edmonds in early 2016 and is making the necessary steps to eventually attend the University of Washington’s Doctorate program in Physical Therapy. Paulo hopes to share his experience and love through Yoga while also bringing more practical knowledge of physiology that will allow students to digest the potential that correct alignment can offer. Paulo’s style is influenced by a lineage of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga, but he considers himself a Slow-Flow Power Yoga teacher. It is not just about sweating and stretching; it is about exploring unknown corners of mind, body, and spirit through breath and movement.

Michelle Marshall

(Co-Owner of Bindi Yoga)
Michelle has been teaching yoga since 2009 and has been a student yogi since she was in high school. Upon completion of high school, she went on to find a career in Exercise Science and Nutrition at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. She decided in 2010 that becoming a yoga instructor would help her to incorporate things she was learning in school as well as teaching something that she was passionate about. Not only was she certified through Yoga Works with 200 hours in 2010, but she also has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Wellness from Bastyr. In Michelle’s yoga classes you will find that she likes to incorporate and teach students about anatomy and physiology of the human body as well as making class fun and challenging to all her students. She believes yoga should be practiced very safely and believes in good alignment and positioning the body to each individual’s body type. Explore, Learn, Have fun!

Christina Broussard

My first Hot Yoga class was with Michelle here at Bindi back in 2013, & it changed my life! I am forever grateful! Yoga taught me how to love myself. It made me realize that this is the only body I have, and I need to take good care of it by giving it what it needs.
Through Hot Yoga alone, I lost 40lbs that I had been stuck with for too many years. I began to release toxins that had built up in my body, and I was feeling better than I ever have before. I was rearranging my schedule for yoga as it became a priority in my life. That's when I knew that Hot Yoga was for me. I had found my "Happy place", and it became my passion.
In June 2016 I received my 200hr YTT Certification to deepen my practice, and to learn to express my love for yoga to others.
We all strive for Samadhi- "Pure Bliss", and Yoga will get you there! I hope you join me in my Hot Yoga classes, maybe love something new about yourself, dig deep, and get sweaty with me!

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.

Susan Rennert

(Co-owner of Bindi Yoga)
My training was done at the Yoga Tree in Freemont. I have my 500 hour Yoga Alliance Certification. Besides yoga being a big part of my life, I also share my life with my husband Jack and 4 dogs. My daughter Michelle (also co-owner) and I started Bindi Yoga together February 2011.
A yoga practice is different for everyone, you do not need to be flexible, have great balance, or have a dancers body. Anyone can do some form of yoga. I have been humbled in my own practice and reminded that just because I teach yoga doesn't mean that I can do a picture perfect pose. We all have injuries or other challenges that affect our yoga practice. I give myself a daily reminder that yoga is a lifetime practice.
Yoga invites us to explore connections with the relationship we have within ourselves. When we build on the awareness of body and breath, thoughts and emotions, we can start to really understand who we truly are. My classes are a good mix for both the experienced yogi as well as the beginner yogi. By creating a space for each yogi to feel free to move into a more challenging pose or to take it down a notch allows you to be more in control over your practice. My job is to guide you and help you achieve your goals. At anytime you feel you need additional help or guidance regarding your yoga practice, please do not hesitate to as anyone of us. We love hearing from our students! -Namaste Susan

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.

Jessica Jones

When my journey with yoga began 7 years ago, I had no idea how deeply and profoundly it would enrich my life. For the first time in many years, I developed a sense of peace and ease in my own mind. I even started to feel a love for and belief in myself that I hadn't felt since childhood. I was instantly hooked and it became my new form of daily medicine. My journey is no where near complete as I am always learning and evolving in my own exploration of life and of the practice. Currently my main focus is on studying the principles of Ayurveda and learning to live a life in balance and in harmony. My classes reflect this understanding by selecting what is right for our bodies energetically depending on the season, time of day, or what's going on around the world. My goal is for my students to leave feeling strong, empowered, and connected to their radiant joyful truth!

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.
 
Our Hot Yoga classes are “Hatha” based with a flair of vinyasa. Haha comprises of postures (asana), Breath work (pranayama) and meditation (dyana). The longer posture holds help to increase both strength and steadiness of the mind and body, and also find benefits out of each asana with proper alignment cues and hands on adjustments when needed. The heat is designed to help increase muscular flexibility, sweat, and to help free your body from toxins. All levels welcome to these classes! Please bring a mat, towel, and plenty of water.
 
The temperature and humidity may vary depending on class time and number of students, but we try and make the atmosphere the same for each class. We keep our heated room to around 105 degrees (Hot Power Vinyasa classes range from 95-100 degrees). We are aware that humidity can cause serious overheating and over exhaustion, therefore we opt for a dryer heat by excluding a humidifier which most hot yoga studios in the area have.
