I am so grateful to all the staff who students who make SHY such a special place to discover yoga, connection, and friendship. Namaste.
I found Hot Yoga in DC in 2001 as a New Year's resolution. It changed the entire trajectory of my life.
Totally inspired, I ran off to LA to get certified with Bikram in 2003. Immersing myself in teaching and connecting with students, I discovered what has become my life’s work: living, learning, teaching, and practicing Yoga, Qigong, and Taoist Healing Arts. I have been blessed with many great teachers, mentors, and students as on my journey.
In 2007, I founded what has become Steamtown Hot Yoga & Barre. Now with my love, John Yanni Alexiou, we share in the mission of creating a space for wellness through community and a community through wellness, in Steamtown Hot Yoga & Barre.
For every student who walks through our doors, I hope for you to fall in love with yourself and this practice as much as I did, and to allow SHY to become a best part of your day!
