Julie Kelly-Smith

Julie decided to try yoga to strengthen weak areas in her body while recovering from a running injury. After practicing yoga for a few short months not only did she experience less pain while running but yoga put a balance in her life off the mat as well. A life-long athlete, Julie was drawn to the intense physical practice but it was the mind body connection that kept her coming back. She sees yoga as a much needed balance to today’s hectic lifestyles. She took her practice to the next level and completed the 200hr Hot Teacher Training at Corepower Yoga in Chicago in 2009. She then continued her journey studying vinyasa, yin and prenatal yoga. Through teaching she enjoys working with others on their journey towards finding their truth through mental, physical, and spiritual health/wellness.  Julie returned to New Mexico in 2012 after being in Chicago for 7 years. She is delighted to be back in the warm sunny southwest to enjoy the outdoors and share her love of yoga with you.

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).

Jenny Thomas

Jenny has always had a passion for health and wellness. She first started practicing yoga in 2006 while working on her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science, and was amazed by not only the physical, but the mental and emotional benefits of the practice. To share her love of yoga, she began teaching classes to the employees at Sandia National Laboratories in 2009. In early 2011, Jenny discovered her love for practicing in the heat when she tried Bikram yoga, which she practiced consistently for two years. Later, she also grew to love other forms of hot yoga. After completing her Master’s Degree in Exercise Science in 2013, Jenny completed her 200-hour Ayuryoga Teacher Training from the Ayurvedic Institute in early 2014. She continues to work full time at Sandia National Laboratories as a Health Educator and Fitness Professional to teach and promote healthy lifestyles.
This 90 minute class is where a student goes to dial it way down. Expect a very relaxing experience in a warm, but not hot, room. Practitioners will use props to find full body relaxation in postures, allowing gravity to do its work. This is a fantastic balance for a vigorous practice, and also a great weekly class for anyone who has physical limitations.  Environment -- 80 degrees/30% humidity
