HOT Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)


This class is taught by:

Jennifer Gottlick

Jennifer began the practice of yoga as a way to physically challenge herself and to relieve her own stress and anxiety. She developed a deep love of the practice and discovered how beneficial it can be physically, mentally and spirituality. She made the life changing decision to leave her job in the health care industry to focus on deepening her knowledge and sharing the benefits of yoga. She completed her 200 hour RYT through Onyx Yoga Studio. Jennifer developed a knack for the subtlety of anatomy and alignment in the asana. She has the gift of being able to offer her students cues on how to move from the inside and with the breath. She offers options and teaches modifications so every student has something to do. Jennifer has a welcoming and supportive presence. She teaches in a way that has students feeling safe and inspired. Jennifer extends her deepest gratitude to her teacher Shannon Elliott, for her support and encouragement along this journey. She also has gratitude and love for all of her teachers, past, present and future.

Michael Kohan

Michael (Mukunda Chandra das) completed his 300 hour teacher training in 2013 under the guidance of Ragunath das and Sondra Loring. Additionally, in 2015 he will complete a 600 hour Anusara Yoga teacher training lead by Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny. His well-rounded asana classes incorporate creative Vinyasa sequencing along with meditation, clear intention, and uplifting music. Michael’s asana classes are infused with devotion and aligned with the spiritual teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali. He strives to embody the qualities of yoga - humility, compassion, devotional service and non-violence, and he believes his role is to serve others through the practice of yoga, enabling students to become steadfast in their yoga. He believes that in serving others, we come to realize our true purpose.

Denise Corsini

Denise was introduced to the practice of yoga in 2006 and was fascinated by the unique combination of mental stimulation and physical demand. Compelled to learn more, she began to enhance her knowledge of the postures, philosophies, and meditation which has allowed her to appreciate yoga as a holistic science of healing and happiness. She is enthusiastic about sharing her wide range of knowledge so that her students can learn to approach their lives with a deeper sense of awareness and consciousness. She also strives to help students of all levels find the edge of their practice and then guide them to the next level. She has completed a 200 Hour Hot Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Certification as well as a 100 Hour Therapeutic Certification. Come prepared to breathe, sweat and awaken. Allow this sacred practice to transform your life!

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.

Sarah England

Sarah walked into her first yoga class looking for an alternative way to stay in shape, but after that first Shavasana, left having found something much more. After a few months of practice, she was blown away by the positive impacts her practice began to have on her life both on and off the mat. This deep interest to dive even more into the practice led her to complete her 200 hour teacher training through Onyx Yoga Studio.

Her classes provide a fun yet purposeful practice, challenging and strengthening students not only physically, but also mentally. While offering modifications throughout the asana, students in a group setting can each develop at their own pace as they are encouraged to listen to their own bodies, connect with their own breath, and feel their own energy as they move through the practice. She continues to be inspired by and is forever grateful to all of her teachers past and present for being a part of this journey.
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.
