Jo completed his 500hr teacher training in 2016 with Raja Yoga Academy in Gold Coast, Australia. With a background in wrestling and a love for surfing and tennis, a way to repair and stay in shape is a must. Hot sequence fits the bill perfectly and helps maintain a healthy mind and body for even the most extreme of personalities. Jo has been practicing since 2013 and still sees improvement on a regular basis both on and off the mat. Hot sequence rocks!
Sabrina was born and raised in Munich, Germany. She moved to the Atlanta area in 1995. After graduating high school she earned her degree in Early Childhood Education and taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and privately tutored special needs children. Sabrina always dreamed of having a child of her own and a few years after getting married, her and her husband Corey, welcomed their daughter Bailey into the world. Sabrina quit her job to stay home and be a full time stay at home mom. That is the time when she found yoga and fell in love with how yoga made her feel. She started out following along with videos on the internet and then one day stumbled across Ember Hot Yoga being built in downtown woodstock. At first she wasn’t sure about doing a class in a heated room, but after a few tries she fell in love and signed up for her very first 30 day challenge. That is when her practice truly started and she hasn’t looked back since.
Sabrina loves the playfulness that a vinyasa class can provide. Flowing slowly with your breath and being able to twist or turn yourself upside down are some of her favorites to teach or do in a vinyasa class.
The challenge of the heat and balance in postures are what she loves most in Hot Sequence classes. She loves the fact that each Hot Sequence class feels different and can have different challenges, although the postures are always the same. The class always leaves her feeling energized, strong and accomplished. Even teaching Hot Sequence, she leaves feeling the energy from the students in the room.
Sabrina believes that yoga is for everyone. Sharing her passion for yoga and helping others find their path is what Sabrina finds most gratifying.
Sabrina now resides in Woodstock with her husband Corey, daughter Bailey and her two dogs. Outside of yoga she loves to spend time outside hiking, exploring and traveling with her family.
Brittany is from New Orleans and discovered yoga in college. There was a little book of pranayama exercises at the back of her library. Shortly thereafter, she moved to New York and was introduced to asanas and the teachings of Dharma Mittra. Ten years later and six months pregnant, she developed a consistent, near daily practice. The yoga changed me from the inside out.
Eight years passed before she earned her 200 hour RYT certification in a vinyasa-style yoga that emphasizes Ayurvedic concepts. Since then, she has completed an additional 100 hours of continuing education. Her intention is the same every class I teach. She’s there to inspire you and take you to a new place in your ever-evolving practice.
Jane was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Work stresses and a tight body from years of running and biking brought her to Ember Hot Yoga in 2012 where she started her practice with Hot Sequence classes. What was meant to be her outlet to cope with stress and a stretch class that kept her from sports injuries, eventually led to a new way of life of finding stillness, honoring her body, opening up, letting go, and self-healing. Jane's classes focus on alignment over depth to help you build a strong foundation in your asana practice and to help keep you injury free. She also provides opportunities to go deeper, to explore, and to have fun.
