Kintu started a consistent Baptiste power yoga practice in the summer of 2007 with the hopes of gaining energy and loosing pregnancy weight. At first she found the practice extremely challenging, but the benefits she felt kept her committed to working through the resistance. For the first time in her life she felt a connection to her mind, body and heart. This connection grew in depth with every practice and training. She considers herself to be a lifelong student of yoga and is passionate about sharing the power of the practice.

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. Danielle holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from the University of North Florida.  She is in the process of obtaining her Baptiste Certification and her RYT-500. In her free time Danielle loves spending time with her fiance, family and dog. She enjoys traveling, attending concerts and meeting new people.

Denise discovered yoga while recovering from a car accident in Minnesota. She had a Baron Baptiste DVD where she practiced from home watching the DVD. When she moved to Jacksonville she decided to wonder outside of her living room and into a Baptiste studio. She fell in love with the practice and the community at the studio. And through this she was inspired to develop and maintain a regular practice at the studio. As a teacher Denise hopes to share the joy, freedom, growth and life transformation that she experiences through her own practice, training and everyday life. Outside of the studio Denise likes to travel, be outdoors, spend time at the beach, she enjoys the arts, and spending time with family and friends.

Nicole started practicing yoga at home with DVD's and online videos and was excited to see how quickly she progressed. Eventually she joined Hot Spot and realized yoga was not only a fun physical challenge, but a way to connect her internal experience with her external experience. The peace of mind and presence she found while practicing began to overflow into the rest of her life. As a teacher Nicole hopes to guide others to unlock strength, freedom, and self-acceptance within themselves. She intends to share the transformational tools that she has gained through Yoga to empower others to step into their own uniqueness and shine their brightest. In Nicole's free time she likes to  spend time with loved ones, explore, hike, travel, camp, kayak, paint and work with graphic design.

After some time of avoiding the gentle suggestions from his girlfriend Leah, Jon finally joined her for his first class Baptiste class. Impressed with how this style of yoga challenged the physical aspects of strength, flexibility, and balance, Jon committed to a consistent yoga practice. It didn’t take long before Jon realized the power of this style of yoga to connect the mind, body and spirit. Witnessing Leah experience her teacher certification and the powerful connections with ourselves and others which the program facilitates, Jon was inspired to pursue a path of continued growth through a Baptiste Methodology Teacher Certification Program as well. Jon graduated in April 2011. Jon has a deep admiration of the transformations that are possible through the application of the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga teachings. Through teaching yoga, Jon’s vision is to help facilitate a connection with the student’s authentic self to realize their greatest potential.
