Hot Flow


This class is taught by:

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.

Jill Cortez

Jill’s classes are all about strengthening on levels of the human being: spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. Her classes are often challenging but not tiring. She delivers a powerful class to create self-awareness and self-love that speaks directly to the soul through the transitions and movements of the asanas. Students step away from their comfort and walk away cleansed internally and empowered.

Jill began yoga as a result of injuries from running. Another runner advised her to take a Bikram Yoga class, the only form of yoga she practiced for two years. Ultimately, it lead her to learn she had been missing an important element of the practice: listening to the heart. Jill attended yoga teacher training with YogaOne March 2012.

Her journey has been enlightening every step of the way through the discoveries from her practice, the connections that are created and her personal growth.

Heather Hutson

Growing up in small town Needville, Tx Heather was introduced to yoga by a Denise Austin Dvd. After purchasing a few more DVDs, She was astonished to hear instruction for "free form" yogis choice. Heather, being a self proclaimed doer, found that the space to just be, feel and create shapes on her own was foreign and intimidating. She started her practice at Awakened Yoga in 2014. After about a month of feeling awkward, she settled into this beautiful love story with herself. 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. She intends to finish yoga teacher training in 2017 at AY studio and give back the goodness she has received through this divine practice. She encourages staying in tune with your inner drum, letting yoga meet you on your mat and together form a harmonious song.

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.”

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.

Amber Callahan

Amber Callahan is a mom to two boys, yogi, practices Jiu Jitsu, weight lifter, certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, Arbonne consultant, and plant based diet enthusiast. She began practicing yoga just over a year ago after battling chronic physical conditions from years of heavy weight training and running and training for marathons. What she found when she started practicing consistently was that her body healed physically from injuries and stayed strong. In addition to the physical benefits, Amber has also found that yoga has helped her on an emotional and spiritual level as she has learned to carry yoga principles off the mat, as well. She received her 200 hour yoga certification through Awakened Yoga and also holds a certification as a personal trainer and nutrition coach.
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.
