RYT, Reiki II

Karen received certification from the North Carolina School of Yoga in 2004 and expresses gratitude to Chandra Om and her guru Sri Dharma Mittra. She and Rosemary Andrews, RYT, founded Danville Yoga and Meditation Center (now referred to as “the Center”) in 2004. It is a space which offers several modalities for healing and wellness.  Karen is grateful for the instructors and therapist who have honored the Center with their commitment and contributions by encouraging and promoting wellness in our community. She appreciates all who have visited the Center and lovingly reflects on those who have incorporated yoga into their daily lives.  She’s always excited when a “newbie” comes to class!  Inhale…exhale.



 Studio Owner, E-RYT200, RYT500, YACEP  Vinyasa Flow, Yoga Nidra, Reiki II
Cyndi was involved with weight training, Personal Training – even did a few Fitness Competitions – and was interested in yoga, but had not begun a serious practice. After moving from NC to Virginia, she found a local yoga studio where she felt like she belonged, and she began to practice regularly. She took the plunge and enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training, graduating from the Hot Asana Yoga University and receiving her 200RYT. She received her 500RYT with K10Yoga.
“I love the way yoga brings me calmness and peace while still being strong. It’s all about the balance. As a teacher, I hope I can help others find their balance, both on and off the mat.” Contact: yogawithcyndi@gmail.com



 (CYT)  Vinyasa, Restorative 

Casey is a dedicated yoga practitioner who believes that the benefits of yoga are infinite and available to us all. She began her exploration with Bikram Yoga in high school in Vermont, studied Kinesiology at Arizona State University from 2003-2008, and has since immersed herself in the study of yoga. At Neighborhood Yoga in Boone, NC, Casey graduated from the 200 hour training program in May 2013 taught by Valerie DiScuillo Midgett and Kelly Golden. Her study focused on dynamic Vinyasa Flow Yoga with mentoring in Iyengar Yoga from Haeyoung Grace Kandl. Ultimately yoga is her sincerest passion and she wishes to share increased health and happiness with the world. 



(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.



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.



  200(RYT) Vinyasa/Trauma-Informed

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.

 (CYT) 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!
