Brit
Brit works as a teacher in the community, directing theatre and working in special education. She is lucky to have been a cat with many lives, working professionally as an actor and director in New York City for many years. While in New York, she found that yoga helped access a deeper creative potential, a deeper connection to her own life, and the ability to ride the waves of being a passionate and emotional creature. She trained for many years and received her RYT200 from Yoga To The People in New York City. She is passionate about sharing the freedom that yoga can unlock, psychically, physically and emotionally. She encourages you to jump in and get your feet wet! There is no other wonderful time but now.
Danielle
My passion of sharing yoga branches from its healing roots. Including my own journey, I have seen the magic of the practice cure addiction, mend broken bodies and hearts, and bring unity to the lost and the lonely. In January of 2017, I finally took the leap to become a RYT-200 at MI Hot Yoga Studios with a training based in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Slow Burn, and Yin. No matter the style of yoga, witnessing others discover freedom through asana, release barriers of self doubt, and open the doorway to new challenges, vulnerability, and love is a truly fulfilling gift. Within six years of personal practice, my heart is always drawn to a slow flow where I am invited to create mindfulness in the quiet spaces between movement. But whether it’s your first time or your thousandth, whether you’re looking for a physical workout or just need to find peace in the stillness, let the practice ignite something inside you that connects us all.♡

Dave
David is a professional violinist and began practicing yoga when he retired from teaching orchestra in the Bloomfield Hills School District. Yoga has made him feel stronger, more flexible, and most importantly, more mindful. He began teaching yoga in April 2019 and prefers practicing Slow Flow Vinyasa.  
Gretel
Initially I found yoga to be a great compliment to my exercise routine of cross country running, elliptical, and weight lifting.   I developed tendonitis in my elbows from the weights and required hip surgery from the running.   I was introduced to yoga 10 years ago and quickly realized that a 60-minute vinyasa yoga practice 3 times a week gave me the same results.  In addition, I gained a more spiritual connection and learned to use yoga breathing techniques off my mat in everyday situations.  Yoga has brought me great happiness and a sense of connection to my fellow yogis.  Unlike other physical activities, there is no competition in yoga.  Yoga is an ongoing practice where teachers and students are truly there for one another inspiring each other to be their best, embracing acceptance of oneself and living with gratitude. My favorite yoga to practice varies based on my daily physical and mental state.  I alternate practicing heated power yoga, slow flow vinyasa, restorative yoga, and Yin. I currently teach all levels of vinyasa and Yin.  My classes always provide instructions for alternate poses and an atmosphere that allows every yogi, regardless of experience, a positive experience with tools and cues to create a personalized experience.  I have been teaching for three years and my ultimate goal is to offer a practice that challenges your strength and endurance while offering freedom and flexibility to express yourself at a personal level. TRAINING/CERTIFICATIONS: 200 hour RYT w/Laura Tropea,, Baptiste Institute Being of Power & Baptiste Immersion, Street Yoga w/Mark Lilly, Yin Levels 1 and 2 w/Lynne Baum  
Judy
I have been practicing yoga for about 30 years. For much of that time I viewed my yoga as a supplement to strength and fitness training, however around 2013 I decided to dedicate myself both mentally and physically to all aspects of yoga. Since completing YRT200 teacher training I have been working in class settings and with youth athletes and continue to evolve my own practice. I strive to accommodate the needs of students of all levels and love finding laughs along the way. I live in South Lyon with my husband, four kids and dog. Namaste my beautiful friends!

Marla
I found my way to yoga after having my two youngest sons. At first, it was just a way to get out of the house and relieve stress, but it quickly became an integral part of my life. I knew I had to share yoga with people so I enrolled in 200 hour teacher training and began teaching right away. My background is in Baptiste Yoga methodology. The power of yoga and it’s ability to bring you back to yourself and the present moment is life changing.  

Stephanie
Stephanie began teaching yoga in 2013 after a two year personal journey through her own practice.  In the first years of teaching her focus was on kids and family.  She taught yoga in all of the area elementary schools as a give back.  She came back to Yoga teaching in the Fall of 2018 and took over direction of the studio in April of 2019.  She prefers a Slow Flow personal practice and her class style will focus on heart opening, balance and strength.
