Candlelight Exalted Warrior - Hot


This class is taught by:

Emma Weber

Emma found yoga in 2011 while she was in Boulder, Colorado. Boulder was not for her, but yoga sure was! Upon her return to Los Angeles she immediately began her practice at the first studio she could find. Soon after, she took her first teacher training and began teaching. Emma's influence in the yoga community involves not only teaching but also private instruction and teacher training experience. Her certifications include vinyasa, power, hatha yoga as well as group fitness. On a daily basis she teaches and takes class, to stay balanced in her own practice which is the main principle she tries to instill in her students. Emma urges others to be open to life's opportunities ... You never know where they will take you. Namaste!

Tara Smith

My yoga journey began Almost 15 years ago when I discovered Hot Yoga living in San Francisco California. Yoga became a daily practice in my life, bringing me constant and continuous peace of mind. I went in for the physical but came out with a sense of pride and passion for myself realizing quickly that it's never about how you look in that room but how you feel. Wanting others to approach yoga in the same way it lead me to my first teacher training in late 2013. I obtained my RYT 200hr certification and continue to educate myself with trainings and workshops as well as I have a dedicated personal practice. I have taught over 2000 studio classes priding myself on personal attention with verbal and physical alignment details, injury modification and positive encouragement always. I am grateful to be apart of something that is so transformative for people. Everyone comes in the room for different reasons. I look forward to teaching you and being apart of your yoga journey in our wonderful community.

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!
