Hatha Yoga can be a very established set of postures in a sequence that compliments each successive asana, being married to Pranayama breathing it brings together body, mind and spirit. A familiar style where a student learns the set order with each and every class attended, accessible to all, even beginners. This class includes heat, as it is a more stationary style, breath is relaxed and postures are held for time in stillness. Hatha typically focus on the bodies nadi channels
Vinyasa Yoga typically involves a gradual progression of poses that systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and safely lands them at the next point. It is sometimes described as the "breathing system," or the union of breath and movement that make up the steps. The movements follow breath rhythms, at a faster pace, with the goal being fluid movement through each pose. In Vinyasa, we will also teach about the 3 Bandhas and the impact to the Ujjayi Breath; which fires up your internal heat bringing these key components together with the asanas will help your students reach their full potential.
Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin could be described as stable, immobile, feminine, passive, cold, and downward moving. Yang is understood to be changing, mobile, masculine, active, hot, and upward moving.
More passive asanas in yoga are considered yin, whereas the more active, dynamic asanas are described as yang.
In our training, we include the concepts of theming a class that you learn to lead. We want to ensure that you understand the design of a theme, and why it helps your students to follow your lead, but have a direction to take their own practice. These lessons in theming will bring value to your training of others
Aligning the joints and limbs in Yoga is important, ensuring that your bodies natural channels are open and aligned to get the most out of the body.

A native of Washington and graduate of the University of Washington, Eunice thought her career path would stay in Graphic Design working at a desk behind a computer until she was involved in three major car accidents. Years of chiropractic care, massage therapy, and physical therapy appointments finally placed a Band-aid on her chronic back pain but as soon as the various appointments stopped (as all insurance coverage does) all the pain came back.
When she discovered hot yoga, she was suffering from back pain, was 50 pounds overweight and was diagnosed with gallstones with the next steps of surgery to remove her gall bladder. Not wanting to go under the knife, she took drastic matters into her own hands (not recommended) and changed her diet, started exercising and took charge of her life again. Hot yoga changed her life. Not only did it help her lose 50 pounds, lowered her triglycerides from borderline levels, prevented attacks from her gall stones but it also did what no other exercise has been able to accomplish; it soothed her soul and mind. Stresses were more manageable. Staying focused was easier.
Eunice knew hot yoga would stay with her for the rest of her life after one class. She signed up for Hot Hatha Teacher Training within the first month of her first class in 2009. One year after her first class she starts managing the studio in Federal Way while also increasing attendance, membership retention, profitability and sales for the two years she was there. Since then her yoga continuing education years encompassed a Hot Power Teacher Training, a Yin Yoga training, Ashtanga yoga, anatomy, assisting multiple yoga teacher trainings and workshops, Yoga Wall training, many dissections of yoga philosophy to directing Hatha and Power Teacher Trainings at Hot Yoga Inc. and now on her own.
Eunice has dedicated herself to the next step of continually giving back to her yoga students through leading classes and trainings. Yoga is her lifelong study and practice.
