Hot Flow 1


This class is taught by:

Barb Sotos

Barb encourages approaching postures or asanas with curiosity, an open mind and a light heart is always allowing students to be wherever their body tells them to be in that moment, free of judgment and full of awareness and appreciation for their limitations. After all, Yoga is about uniting the body with the breath and the mind, not about perfecting the asana!

Barb appreciates everybody’s uniqueness. Knowing that life is full of challenges, self awareness through her instruction in order to better understand and appreciate the power you have in dealing with situations and living your life. She creates a non intimidating environment and is often told she is clear and easy to follow. Infusing positive energy, genuine concern and respect for each individual and their personal journey.

Anthony Berlingeri

Anthony relates yoga to being in a relationship; it takes commitment, vulnerability, playfulness, faith, forgiveness, & compassion. Anthony’s love affair with yoga began about 8 years ago & like most relationships do, it started on the surface. My hamstrings were super tight and I wanted to loosen up while toning my body. Little did I know yoga would remain with me throughout some of the hardest times of my life. Yoga became a mirror for me to see myself in. Most of us start to practice for the simple reason of strengthening the mind and body, but ultimately we begin to re-discover our own truth. We get out of our heads and into our Selves, which is the very nature of love. As a teacher I believe the essence of yoga is also the art of living. Its about being present for our Self, and the world that we live in, so that we can express and celebrate the divinity that we all share. Yoga isn’t a religion, nor does it have anything to do with becoming a better person. Its simply about letting go of the past, as well as our fears of the future, so that the gift of the present can be received! Anthony is recognized in the community for his commitment to bring yoga and meditation into schools through his Yoga Affects Youth initiative. His intention is bring the gift of yoga and meditation to children so that they can begin the path of their own discovery from an early age. For more information check out yogaaffectsyouth.com.
 
Anthony's favourite yoga pose is Salamba Sirsasana (Headstand). It's not often he flips his world upside down, but when he does it gives him a completely different view and perspective. It also forces him to be present to avoid tumbling over.

Chris Nguyen

Curiosity is what brought Chris into his first yoga class. That curiosity marked the beginning of an ongoing journey and passion for the practice of yoga and a profound desire to deepen that relationship. 
 
Chris completed De La Sol's 200 hour YTT and is currently studying the Ashtanga Yoga method through his Level 2 authorized teacher, Anna Muzzin. With persistence and dedication, one's yoga practice can only strengthen and grow deeper. In 2015, Chris embarked on two separate trip to Mysore, India to study with R.Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Rangaswamy at KPJAYI (Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute), the source of Ashtanga yoga. In 2016, Chris completed his third trip. Chris is a certified Functional Range Conditioning Movement Specialist (FRCms) studying under Dr. Andreo Spina.

  

To Chris, yoga is not something to "excel" at but rather about cultivating contentment, compassion, mindfulness, self acceptance and bringing awareness into the body. Yoga has transformed his life on and off the mat. As a teacher, he aspires to help others find a santosha (contentment) and a deeper connection to themselves. 

  

One of Chris' favourite poses is urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow pose). The feeling of opening up to endless possibilities can be quite addicting.

Martha Shea

Martha has been practicing and teaching yoga since 2000 and received her first 300 hour yoga certification with The American Yoga Academy that same year. In 2001 Martha received her yoga certification from The Yoga and Healing Center in New Jersey with Wendy Grosse, who specializesin Soul Sweat Yoga. In 2003, Martha was certified in Prenatal Yoga with Janice Clarfield at Kripalu Yoga, and in 2008, her Yoga Ed Certification in Ontario.
 
Martha has been inspired by David Life and Sharon Gannon and has attended several intensive training and summer camps with them. This year, Martha completed her Baron Baptiste Level 2, and is currently working on her certification with him.
 
Martha’s mat is a vehicle for creativity and freedom in her life. She counts her blessings on her mat. It is a place of pure space where she connects to her center, her strength and her authenticity. Yoga has brought Martha through some very challenging times in her life. She believes in many ways that it has saved her. It reminds her constantly that she is always stronger than she thinks she is, and it reminds her to be present in her moment, her life, one breath at a time.
 
Martha’s favourite poses are arm balances. Arm balances combine freedom and strength. You need to draw on your core, your truth before you can find the courage to fly. They remind you that anything is possible – all you have to do is break the branch, trust and fly into endless possibilities !!!
Using the principles learned in an Intro, this class moves you through sequences at a faster pace and explores more challenging asanas such as backbends and arm balances. Flow classes contain elements found in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara and Iyengar practices.
