I came to yoga as a means of coping with anxiety and depression after my divorce. It was so immediately and powerfully helpful that in 2015, I signed up for yoga teacher training through Hot Asana Yoga University. About midway through my training, I began to look into the applications of yoga for survivors of trauma. Since graduating in 2016 I have taken additional trainings in Core Strength Yoga as well as several Trauma-Informed approaches, including a 20 hour workshop with David Emerson, the father of Trauma Sensitive Yoga, whith whom I plan to continue my studies in pursuit of my 300 hour certificate.
All of my classes are trauma-informed and interoceptive, which means I take a hands-off, personalized and intimate approach that is more concerned with how you feel in your body than what the shapes look like.
I look forward to sharing this beautiful, healing practice with you.
Heidi began her yoga journey in 2012 during a period of self-reflection and lifestyle changes. She realized that learning yoga asanas from a video was not fulfilling her needs, and sought out in person yoga classes. And that’s where she met Karen Maute, whom changed her whole understanding of what “yoga” was. Her curiosity was awakened to explore more. She enrolled and completed K10 Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training. Heidi’s style of yoga is slow and steady one asana at a time. Off the mat, Heidi is always looking for that next hiking trail for her Slough Hiking team to tackle as they enjoy nature’s beauty one step at a time.
Yoga found me almost 16 years ago. Yoga introduced me to calmness and a grounding peace that I will always appreciate. Before my first class, I was often unsettled and easily agitated. Not dealing well with stress and change, I found comfort in the practice. The intentional arrival to the mat, the breath, the stillness; as I make my way through the poses, I am able to let the outside world take a pause for just a few moments as I find my grounding. Through the changes in life each of us will inevitably face, I want to be the one who holds a lamp for someone else to find their way. I want to hold a space for those that are fatigued and dispassionate, who are experiencing a regular loss of enjoyment in their daily moments, to find meaning and purpose in their lives, so that they can find clarity and joy again in all that they experience. Yoga does that. Yoga heals. And I’m so glad yoga found me!

200(RYT) Vinyasa, CCYT Children's Yoga, Reiki II
Call me Kerribeth or KB, for short. I love teaching, counseling, and leading group activities. I was a therapeutic recreation director for 4 years; I've been a school counselor for 15 years, July 2018 a 200 Hour Yoga Instructor, and I have recently become a certified children's yoga instructor. I have a passion for guiding people of all ages, sizes, and lifestyles on the journey to find what makes them happy. I fell in love with yoga and the self-acceptance it has brought me. Through my own practice of yoga, I have learned that blocks, cushions, and props are tools that only serve to deepen one's practice. I am proud to be a curvy yoga instructor. I believe anyone can do yoga, you just have to show up to your mat. If you want to try yoga on for size or find a path to peace, let me be your guide!
200(RYT) Vinyasa , Yin Yoga, Reiki
Denyse started practicing yoga in 2012 in southern California. It was California, and everyone practiced yoga. She had a physical practice.
In 2014 she moved to Virginia and practiced sporadically. In 2017, she found that tiny bit of stillness and peace a yoga class can offer. She began to feel the warmth and sense of community her fellow yogis offered.
In 2018, she signed up for teacher training with Hot Asana Yoga University. She is currently working towards her 500 RYT. She believes the best thing she can do with this knowledge is share it with others.
Denyse would love to share your light and energy on the mat.
(CYT) Vinyasa, Yoga Nidra
I started my physical practice of yoga while I was in college and it was one of the greatest, most uplifting experiences of my life. I felt different, more alive, calmer, and more accepting of all around me. Being a student of Psychology, I knew I wanted to help people become their best most comfortable selves and I started to think that maybe I could help through yoga. Becoming certified, though, was somewhat of a distant goal. It wasn’t until the Hot Asana studio came to Danville that I found a deeper expression of the practice and affirmed my desire to make yoga a very large part of my life. I am very honored to have become a certified 200 hour yoga instructor through Hot Asana University. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of the practice and to working with people of all different backgrounds to help facilitate them toward their best selves. Namaste.
