Hot Flow

This class is taught by:

Brynn Scally

Brynn Scally received her 200-hour yoga certification in 2012 through Awakened Yoga. Brynn teaches a dynamic, rhythmic flow that emphasizes tapping into individual feelings and sensations and bringing students inward to challenge personal boundaries and limiting beliefs. She has taken workshops from Seane Corn, Bryan Kest, Ana Forest, Christina Sell and finished the Baptiste Art of Assisting program in 2014. She lives in Sugar Land with her husband of almost 20 years, two girls and two dogs.

Matt Hostetter

In 2010 Matt was seeking to improve his overall health and fitness and was introduced to CrossFit by a friend. In 2014, he began practicing Yoga to counter-balance the rigors of CrossFit on his body and quickly saw the benefits. He decided to further his practice by becoming a certified teacher in 2015 at Awakened Yoga.

Matt teaches a baptiste style flow and has also brought yoga back to his CrossFit box by teaching weekly mobility class. While Matt leaves the burpees for CrossFit you can still expect to get an intense flow workout usually accompanied by movie scores (bonus points for anyone who knows the movie titles they're from 😉) ending with some much needed stretching; and if time allows a shoulder massage.

Heather Hutson

Growing up in the small town of Needville, Tx, Heather was first introduced to yoga by a Denise Austin DVD. She didn't know what chatarunga meant, but knew it was fun to say. Being an athlete most of her life, she found the space to be, breath, and move in harmony with her body a wonderful yet scary change from the performance based activities. Heather's goal in teaching is to create a clear non-judgmental space for her students to tune in, breath deep, and move with gratitude and acceptance. Her passion for correct alignment, and creative sequences shines in all of her classes.
She started her practice at Awakened Yoga in 2014. After about a month of feeling awkward, she settled into this beautiful love story with her body, mind, and soul. Fine tuned focus, tension and pain relief, easier breathing, blossoming self love, and most of all space to create her best self all came into the picture.
After about a year of practicing at AY, Heather enjoyed the practice, atmosphere and students so much, she started working the front desk on the side for funsies. She then went on to finish her 200 HR R-YTT in early 2017 at Awakened Yoga Studio, where she enjoys giving back the goodness that has been received through this Divine practice.

Now Heather is the happy manager of the studio.
She encourages staying in tune with your inner drum, letting yoga meet you where you are at, and together forming a harmonious song.

Chris Bishop

Chris began dabbling with yoga at a fitness center in 2006, but didn’t begin a consistent practice until he started practicing at Awakened Yoga Studio in 2014.

Since then, Chris describes his experience with yoga as if he is talking about magic. “My body, mind and spirit have all grown in strength and resilience. My heart is as open as it’s ever been. I’ve even had my first real connection with the Divine, and I attribute it all to my yoga practice. I view these all as real-life miracles.”

Chris completed the AYS 200-hour yoga teacher training in March of 2018 and Annie Au’s 100-hour Chinese Meridians and yin yoga teacher training in August 2018.

Chris teaches Flow Basics, Slow Flow, Hot Flow, Hot Power Flow and Yin with a strong emphasis on alignment and breath. Outside of yoga, Chris is interested in nature, meditation, trail running, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and healthy, delicious foods.

Grace Kubecka

Grace teaches a lively, sweaty, and FUN class emphasizing living your life fully and not taking yourself too seriously. Her classes will challenge you and yet release stuff inside... you'll see that yoga goes beyond the poses - there's more - the stuff underneath - that's where the real yoga is.
Grace's yoga journey began in 2000 by attending a yoga class on a whim thinking it would be a boring hour of breathing and stretching. Instead she found herself challenged - body, mind and soul. Instantly addicted, she has been practicing ever since. In 2006, Grace started teaching and spreading the yoga joy! Grace spent her childhood in Houston and has been living in Sugar Land since 2004. She is a wife to a super-tolerant husband and a mother to two energetic boys. Her original career path was climbing the corporate ladder in the field of human resources for over 15 years, and after having two of the cutest boys you'll ever meet, Grace decided to take her passion to the next level and opened Awakened Yoga Studio in Sugar Land in early 2010. It's been a passionate whirlwind ever since!
Grace has completed trainings with a variety of teachers including Baron Baptiste and Ana Forest. Her primary style of teaching is power vinyasa flow but she's been known to teach anything from restorative to Ashtanga! She has also been leading teacher trainings since 2011.

Lindsey Martin

Lindsey Martin has been practicing yoga since 2008 when she stumbled into a vinyasa class at a gym due to curiosity. She fell in love with the poses and became obsessed with mastering them. She loved how every time she left a yoga class, she felt more open and ready for anything. Lindsey has completed her 200-hour certification through Baron Baptiste and is a Certified Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher!  She has completed Baron Baptiste's Level 1, 2 and 3 teacher training programs. She grew up in and currently lives in Sugar Land, Texas.  In addition to yoga, she enjoys traveling, shopping, playing with her children, and running. Lindsey's ultimate goal is to have her students meet their fullest potential mentally, physically and spiritually.

Tamara Kontrimas

Tamara began practicing yoga in 2000 when, due to illness, her body rebelled, hit her upside the head and demanded that she change her exercise routine. She made peace with her body in her first yoga class and has been devoted to the practice ever since. Tamara credits yoga with allowing her to do things now that she couldn’t have imagined doing 15 years ago. As an artist, a retired attorney, and a “wanna be” comedian, she loves the creativity, fluidity and physical challenge of vinyasa flow. She is curious about all of life (ok maybe not math) particularly nature and the odd juxtapositions and opportunities for learning it brings. Through her teaching, Tamara hopes to heighten the over all awareness of others and to create an environment that nurtures the rediscovery of student’s own inner voice. “Throughout the day we all have 1,000 different voices telling us different things about who or what we are or should be. It takes a lot of courage and support to drown out those voices and be true to ourselves, and we can start by listening to the body.”
This is an all-level vinyasa practice where poses are explored beyond the basics and at a faster pace. This class is appropriate for ambitious beginners and long time practitioners.
