HOT Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)


This class is taught by:

Denise Corsini

Denise took her first yoga class as a senior in high school and was immediately hooked. She felt inspired by the physical challenge of the asana practice, and curious about the philosophical themes that many of her teachers talked about. She began to practice several times a week and noticed profound changes in her life – less anxiety, elevated mood, improved focus, better sleep, just to name a few. She wanted to share what she had learned, so she signed up for a 200 hour yoga teacher training with Jeannine Dietz, and began teaching soon after. Since then, she has studied with some of her favorite teachers such as Sue Elkind, Naime Jezzeny, Jason Crandell and Noah Maze. In her classes, Denise strives to help her students pay attention to their breath, cultivate a steady awareness on the present moment, and practice asana in a safe and sustainable way. She truly believes that anyone can enhance their life with yoga and feels incredibly blessed with opportunity to teach!

Teresa Robinson

Teresa tried yoga for the first time in December 2014, and immediately fell in love. She became fascinated by the physical demand of the practice and how calm and relaxed she felt after each class.

Yoga helped Teresa move through a very difficult period in her life, overcoming depression and anxiety. She believes the practice is about clearing away whatever is in us preventing us from living a full and happy life.

To share this gift with others, Teresa completed her 200-hour Teacher Certification at Onyx Yoga Studio in Warren, NJ. She loves studying the Philosophy and Teachings and incorporating them into her classes, in a way that is relatable to everyone. Teresa teaches Vinyasa flow with a strong emphasis on Alignment, providing a safe and mindful approach by offering variations for anyone at any level. She challenges her students to go beyond what they believe possible to realize their unlimited potential. Teresa is eternally grateful for all of her teachers, past, present, and future.

Joshua Ansley

Joshua's yoga is not for the faint of heart. His teaching lies heavily in Vedantic philosophy and is filtered through his background as a classically trained actor in London, a playwright in NY, a filmmaker in Los Angeles, a professional touring rock musician and a teacher training by Eric Paskel of Yoga Shelter in LA and Detroit. That's right...Detroit Rock City. Joshua has been teaching Vinyasa and Yin Yoga in both Spanish and English in Tulum, Mexico at Amansala’s ‘Bikini Boot Camp’, Yoga Shala, Yoga Dicha and Casa Violeta and he has now returned to NY to continue on his own path of teaching and being of service.
 Joshua is an urban monk and believes that all suffering is not caused by the world, but rather our relationship to it. Only through brutal honesty and consistency do we retrain the mind to keep us at our edge physically and mentally and thus surpass even our own expectations on our journey to greatness. His blend of poise and grace gleaned from classical text mixed with his Jersey boy sense of humor and musical talents brings a one of a kind power yogic experience to your own journey of transformation. Are you ready?

Jane Lindemann

Jane is passionate about yoga. She believes that yoga is a life practice, both on and off the mat. Practicing yoga since 2008 she decided to deepen and strengthen her practice by becoming a certified yoga instructor, completing 300 hours of training through Yogadharma with Amy Cronise-Mead and Will Mead, and 100 hours of Anatomy and Therapeutics with Amy Cronise-Mead, this is where she found her foundation of mediation, yoga philosophies, and asana. Jane considers herself a student of life, loving to learn and teach, she hopes to inspire her students with the same foundation and passion that her teachers gave her. Jane is alignment based in her vinyasa teachings, her classes will be challenging but also playful, each students will move through their own practice to the best of their abilities in order for them to reach their full potential.

Jill Portaro

Jill dove into the yoga world after quitting her high paced 9-5 job to start her own mental health private practice. She thought yoga would be a good way to help pass the time as she built up her practice. A few months later, she signed up for teacher training and has grown to love the philosophy as well as the asana (practice). She now realizes that yoga is far from just a way to pass time. In fact, her life would be incomplete without it. Jill completed her 200-hour teacher training at Onyx Yoga Studio. Jill brings her warm-hearted energy to help students reach their full potential while feeling guided along the way. With a focus on alignment and breathwork, Jill helps students feel safe and capable in class. Her creativity and honesty will keep you laughing while working towards challenging yourself. She incorporates her mental health background onto the mat through mindfulness based principals leaving students feeling grounded even after leaving the mat.
Vinyasa Flow yoga taught in a heated environment, 100+ degrees 40%+ humidity. HOT Vinyasa classes move through yoga postures and sequences at a rigorous pace. A prior yoga practice and knowledge of basic postures is assumed given the extreme conditions. Come prepared to sweat and move, although traditional yogic chanting, breathwork, philosophy and meditation are often included also. Bring a non skid towel for your mat, hydrate well prior to class and bring water. Also, dry clothes and/or coverup for after class is advisable. We recommend that true beginners should start in Beginner Basics (regular temperature) or Warm Slow Flow before diving into HOT Vinyasa.
