Static 60


This class is taught by:

Terri Othling

Terri began practicing yoga at the age of 50 in 2010. It wasn’t until her first Bikram class in early 2011 that she became totally captivated with hot yoga, practicing consistently for 3 years. In March 2014 Terri took her first flow class at SWEAT Yoga studio and realized the beneficial, yet challenging beauty of practicing both “static” and “flow” hot yoga. She credits hot yoga with helping to heal knee and shoulder injuries and facilitating the ability to “age with grace.” Enrolling in the first SWEAT Yoga School to deepen her practice and yoga knowledge, Terri graduated in July 2015 with a RYT 200 and a passion to help people realize the countless benefits and joy of yoga, regardless of age. She is a mom, grandmother, and artist, and is so grateful to be a part of the SWEAT community (along with her daughter, Jenny Thomas).

Jessica Dyer

Jessica was introduced to yoga at a young age, practicing in her grandparents’ living room to Rodney Yee on VHS when she was 8 years old. For the next 15 years, yoga remained a key part of her life. Jessica appreciates all styles of yoga and truly believes there is no “wrong” way or reason to practice. She thinks of yoga as a way to immerse yourself fully into whatever life has to offer, on and off the mat. Jessica completed her 200 hour teacher training here at SWEAT, which confirmed her desire to teach and take her practice to the next level. She feels so grateful to be able to be a part of SWEAT’s amazing team to share her passion with students and the yoga community at large. She is excited to contribute to the future of yoga and believes it will only grow from here.

Delynn Davidson

Delynn was introduced to yoga by a college friend in 2007. Before her first class, she expected it to be “just stretching,” but was willing to give it a shot because her friend, also a college athlete, vouched for it. After the first class, she was hooked. She practiced regularly (averaging five classes per week) from that point forward. Delynn utilized yoga throughout two pregnancies, and credits it for helping with two smooth and uncomplicated natural births as well as a quick return to pre-pregnancy weight. Delynn received a 200 hour Registered Yoga Certification (RYT) from Sunstone Yoga Academy in March 2012, shortly before the birth of her second son in April 2012. She also completed a 100 hour training with Janet Stone in July 2013. Prior to teaching yoga, Delynn spent five years as a public high school teacher in Albuquerque, NM and Frisco, TX.

Lisa Duncan

Lisa first discovered hot yoga while training for an ironman in 2010. She added hot yoga to her ironman training program to help with recovery and mental focus, which was instrumental in ultimately finishing the ironman. In 2015, Lisa completed her 200 hour training program at SWEAT Yoga Studio. Lisa loves inspiring healthy lifestyles and sharing the beauty of yoga. Lisa truly believes anybody can do yoga and believes everybody can develop a deeper connection with their mind, body, and spirt. Lisa’s goal for every yoga class is for all students to leave feeling good about themselves with a sense of accomplishment and full of energy. Lisa is a physical therapist that specializes in neurological patients ranging from strokes, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Lisa is excited and grateful to be a part of the SWEAT family and thrilled to share her passion of yoga.

Joe Fox

Joe has participated in organized athletics for the majority of his life; ultimately playing on the Austin College football team as a 270 pound center from 1996-2000. Joe has also spent the majority of his life dealing with injuries, with the first of six knee surgeries at the age of 14. Delynn convinced him to try hot yoga one weekend in the fall of 2008 after hurting his knee yet again. Yoga was the only activity Joe found that provided a well rounded workout (strength, cardio, and flexibility) while also relieving his knee pain and improving its function. After ten years in the investment banking and hedge fund industries, Joe decided to make a larger commitment to his yoga practice and graduated from Sunstone Yoga Academy in June 2011, receiving a 500 hour RYT. Joe has over 1200 hours of teaching experience in Texas and New Mexico.

Vikki Everett

Vikki has been practicing yoga sporadically since 2008. She was introduced to hot yoga through a friend of a friend in 2014 and was immediately hooked. After going through a less than graceful pregnancy, she quickly realized it was time to get back on the mat. When the opportunity to participate in SWEAT Yoga School presented itself, Vikki dove in head first and hasn’t looked back. She initially pursued yoga school to deepen her personal understanding and advance her practice. Through the course of her training she quickly began to uncover a passion for teaching. She is thrilled to share this passion and join the SWEAT family!

Monica Coshenet

Monica has been a fitness junkie for her entire life, always finding new classes or sports to give her that wonderful endorphin high. And that’s exactly how she got hooked at SWEAT, falling in love with the hot room and the challenging classes! Although she first began her hot yoga practice in 2008, she only found consistency with it when she started attending SWEAT in 2013. Monica initially only sought out the physical aspect of hot yoga but has since realized the profound benefits it’s had on her mental and emotional health as well. Because of that, she was eager to join SWEAT’s yoga teacher training despite having just given birth to her first child, Opal! Although teaching at SWEAT has always been part of her goal, she also hopes to use her training in yoga and her background as an Occupational Therapist to make yoga accessible to all people despite any physical or cognitive challenges that they may have. Bottom line is, Monica is beyond excited to be a part of the SWEAT family and the yoga community!

Nathan Espinoza

Nathan is a small town boy who made his way to the "big city" in August 2011. He moved to Albuquerque to further his experience as an elementary school teacher and to find what he didn't know he was looking for at the time. Shortly after moving to Albuquerque, he started experiencing back pain. It was during this time that a co-worker invited him to a hot yoga class. He went and fell in love with his first class. He knew since that day that he wanted to teach yoga one day. It took five years and two yoga schools to make his dream a reality. In August 2016, Nathan completed his 200 hour yoga teacher training at Sweat Yoga Studio. He hopes to help bring light into the lives of his elementary students, his family, and his yoga community.

Nicole Hightower

Nicole was first introduced to hot yoga in May 2009 by a friend who invited her to a class. It was not only her first hot yoga class but her first yoga class in general. Immediately, yoga became a big part of her life and her livelihood. Prior to practicing yoga, Nicole was a pilates student for years and an avid runner. However, she had not yet found her true passion until she found yoga. After attending a workshop by Jimmy Barkan in January 2010, Nicole was inspired to pursue her passion even further by signing up for the Barkan Method Hot Yoga Teacher Training. She completed her level one 200 hour teacher training in July 2010 and her level 2 training in April 2011. Nicole has a background in education and enjoys the teaching aspect just as much as the practice of yoga. She is excited to join the SWEAT family!

In a static class, you will experience a series of postures performed individually with a short pause in between each pose. This class can be a vigorous and well-rounded workout, but is also very appropriate for beginners. It will provide both the new and advanced practitioners with a solid foundation that is useful in other classes offered at SWEAT. Expect a lot of feedback on proper form and alignment. Approximately 2/3 of each class will consist of standing poses, with the remaining 1/3 of class being spent on the floor. Environment – 98.6 degrees/70% humidity
