Sculpted Warrior - Hot


This class is taught by:

Kari Cowell

Hi! I'm Kari and I'm originally from Wisconsin. I started practicing yoga 6 years ago when I worked a full time, high paying job and attended acting school full time. I needed a way to destress! When I moved to L.A. in 2014 to start my acting career, a dear friend of mine introduced me to hot yoga. It was love at first Savasana! A year after moving to L.A., one of my favorite teachers suggested I enroll in teacher training. With a gentle nudge and tons of support from my mentor, I decided to take the leap into teaching yoga! I have been teaching full time since 2016 and am certified in Power Yoga (200 hours), Yoga Sculpt, and Yoga for Traumatized Populations. I also teach Vinyasa, restorative, and kids yoga, and I am a certified advanced Reiki practitioner. In May 2018, I will be traveling to India to receive my 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training. There are too many words to express how much this beautiful practice has affected my life. I hope to create a safe space for my students to explore their practice and make it uniquely their own, as well as inspire a life long curiosity and love for yoga, health, and wellness. I love connecting with each and every single one of my students, and would be overjoyed to grab a tea with you to talk about yoga, life, the Universe, and everything!

Due to many injuries, she was desperate to find a practice that rehabilitated and rejuvenated her body all while keeping it in shape, This is where yoga came in. Alexa fell in love with yoga and how therapeutic it was. After a couple of years of committing to her practice, she decided to take her passion a step further and become a certified instructor. She recently completed her 200 hours in vinyasa flow and is continuing her education and building her practice through multiple extension programs.
