Hot Power Flow


This class is taught by:

Camille McLeod

Camille began her practice in college in a simple quest to find something after dance. Since then she has fallen for the practice and studies whenever possible. She teaches a playful practice that encourages the accessibility of postures through props, practice, and laughter.
 
She completed her 200 RYT with Gioconda Parker.

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.

Jamie Pilloff

Jamie started working at the studio in August 2011 after being a stay-at-home mom for 15 years. She began her practice at Awakened Yoga in January 2011 and decided to join the team after Grace posed the question: “Do you want to work barefoot?” Upon hearing that question, Jamie jumped at the chance to discover her love of people, yoga and retail. She has lived in the Sugar Land/Missouri City area for over 25 years and is married with two kids in college. Jamie serves an instructor & front desk guru.   She loves sharing her love of yoga and chatting with clients.

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, feel and create shapes with the body a nice change from the performance based activities. 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 here, Heather enjoyed the atmosphere and students so much, she started working the front desk on the side. 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, your breath, letting yoga meet you where you are at, and together forming a harmonious song.

Janette Lapus

Janette is a native Houstonian. She grew up in Southwest Houston and graduated from Houston Baptist University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing. She moved to Birmingham, Alabama where she worked as a bedside nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Janette’s interest in patient and family-centered care was a natural fit, leading her to become involved in bereavement care. Janette returned to Houston and took a break from nursing in order to start a family. She has two beautiful children, Lucy and Joshua. When her kids entered school, Janette began her journey back into fitness through kickboxing and jiu-jitsu, eventually discovering yoga. Inspired by her fitness instructors, she completed the Yoga Teacher Training at Awakened Yoga Studio in Spring 2017. Janette’s interests outside of yoga and jiu-jitsu are creating vegetable-based smoothies, learning other forms of martial arts (Eskrima and Jeet Kune Do), promoting women’s self defense, and painting with acrylics.

Chinelo Ikejimba

Chinelo began her yoga journey in 2011 to balance her rigorous training in dance. When she felt mind and body connection in yoga, there was no going back. Chinelo received her RYT200 Yoga Alliance certification through Awakened Yoga Studio’s Spring 2015 Teacher Training. Her favorite yoga style is vinyasa with yin and Forrest tied as runners-up. Ever since she cultivated a dedicated yoga practice, she’s become more mindful, centered, and adventurous. She loves guiding students to become more rooted in themselves while having a laugh. When she’s not teaching, you can find her cracking jokes at the front desk, learning new Afro-pop dance moves, or swimming in Spirit’s pool.
This is a vigorous vinyasa practice that is kicked up a notch in intensity and pace. Be prepared to sweat and be challenged. Appropriate for experienced/ambitious beginners and up.
