Danielle was immediately hooked after her first yoga class. She fell in love with the movement and connection she experienced with her body and her breath. Through her newly developed habit she spent some time exploring different styles and attending classes religiously five days a week. She was so passionate about her own experiences practicing yoga that her boyfriend recommended that she look into teaching. He told her that if she loved something so much, she should share! And so she did! Within a week of his suggestion Danielle was signed up for teacher training! This training was taught implementing the Baptiste Methodology and it was during her training that Danielle feel in love with the Baptiste methodology. She is particularly moved by the methodology being founded in empowerment and meeting the individual as they are/ as they come.  Since the completion of her training, Danielle dove right in to teaching as much as she could, and she loves every minute of it. She hopes to connect and share this passion with her students. And through this connection she intends to develop a platform for them to grow their own awareness of passions that they may have in their own lives. Danielle leads the Teacher Mentorship Program at Hot Spot Power Yoga, and is also a Client Care Adviser for Hot Spot Power Yoga.

Throughout college and her five years living in Southeast Asia, Maria continued to practice many different styles of yoga and found the introspection and reflection through the movement of body and breath to be incredibly healing. Maria was introduced to Mbody through a donation based class at a local studio lead by an Mbody teacher. Completely enthralled with the rhythm and flow of the class, she then found herself at her first heated ninety minute practice at Mbody's Neptune Beach studio.

Lori Drake

RYT-200, Baptiste Methodology

 

Lori discovered yoga by dropping into a Bikram studio in 2003. It was the hardest thing she had ever experienced and laid flat on her back most of the class. She thought that if she could ever make it through an entire class standing then she would be able to accomplish anything in life. That kept her coming back to yoga. Eventually she wanted to branch out and see what other styles were available which is when she discovered Baptiste Power Yoga. She has built a committed personal practice in the Baptiste community as her love for the practice offers her a place to clear her mind, get a killer workout, and overcome her own personal fears. As a teacher she hopes to inspire others to have fun and to feel the joy and benefits of their own yoga practice. Outside of the studio Lori loves going to concerts/ music festivals and volunteering at the local theaters.
