Flow 60


This class is taught by:

Shannon Lucero

Shannon discovered yoga in August of 2013. She felt a sense of peace, safety, internal and external healing and a deep challenge both mentally and physically with every class she took. She immediately looked forward to making it a part of her daily routine. After losing her job of 19 years and enjoying the many benefits of my practice and the inspiration of those around me, she wanted to learn more so she enrolled in Inspire Yoga training in August of 2014 and received her 200 RYT, not knowing she would begin teaching immediately thereafter. Shannon loves teaching as it affords her the opportunity to watch poses connect with the mind, body, and spirit of students. She wants people to leave their mat with a smile and look forward to rolling it out again. Outside of yoga, Shannon received my certification as MOM 20 years ago and has the privilege of raising three boys. She is honored to be a part of the SWEAT family, and is excited to guide and practice alongside this community of fellow yogis.

Alison Roberts

Alison has been practicing various styles of yoga for over 10 years, finding hot yoga in 2009. She instantly fell in love with the heat and made it part of a regular routine. Due to a full time job, the calling to teach had to be put on hold until 2012 when an opportunity presented itself and she completed her 200 hour training through the Sacred Hot Yoga Method. Two years later, Alison took the plunge and left the security of her job to travel to Bali, Indonesia to complete her 500 hour training through Zuna Yoga. Alison's knowledge is thorough and spans from restorative to powerful vinyasa flows with a strong focus on intention, breath, and the energetic systems of the body. She is incredibly grateful and honored to be part of the SWEAT community.

Elisa Hagen

Elisa was first introduced to yoga in 2008 as a way to counteract the injuries and physical stresses that had accumulated over her years of distance running. She knew yoga was necessary for future injury prevention and the overall health of her body, but running remained her focus until her first pregnancy when yoga became a daily part of life. She first came to love hot yoga by attending SWEAT in 2014 after her first son, Hendrik, was born. Yoga at SWEAT was paramount in rebuilding Elisa’s physical, mental, and emotional strength after pregnancy and became a necessity in her life. She attended yoga school at SWEAT in 2016 (along with her six-week old son, Willem) and obtained her 200-hour RYT certification. Elisa has a degree in nutrition, her NASM personal training certification with specializations in core strength, flexibility, women’s fitness and experience teaching group fitness in a gym setting. She truly believes yoga is the best physical, mental and emotional exercise and that it can positively impact everyone’s lives.

Carrie Post

Carrie has been practicing yoga for over ten years, but truly found her passion for vinyasa in 2009 when she first started practicing Hot Yoga. She was immediately hooked on the energy of the flow along with its healing power and signed up for Jimmy Barkan’s hot vinyasa teacher training. Carrie graduated from Jimmy’s level one training in 2010, and did both of his level two trainings that year as well. In the spring of 2012, Carrie began the Five Elements Vinyasa teacher training with Janet Stone. In 2015 Carrie became 500hr certified by Janet Stone Yoga. Carrie is happy to be a member of SWEAT yoga school’s staff and loves witnessing the transformative power of studying yoga. She is also an intuitive bodyworker and a holistic health coach and is passionate about helping people find their paths to deep wellness and joy.

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.

Meredith Gee

Meredith found hot yoga in 2010 with some work out friends and was immediately hooked! The initial rush simmered and the calming effects kicked in and in 2011 Meredith completed her 200 hour RYT training with Sacred Hot Yoga. Since then, Meredith has found her creative side to keep each class different yet accessible to new and experienced yogis. She has been known to say, "I don't want anyone to feel intimidated by a pose or class. Everything can be modified!" The flexibility that comes with teaching yoga is the time that I have to participate in my daughter's life, both school and sports, and the time I have to just run with my dogs. Meredith is excited to join team SWEAT!

Caitlin VonLoh

Caitlin found yoga in the Spring of 2015 while eating lunch. She happened to notice the yoga studio through the window and thought to herself, “Huh, that place is called SWEAT, I should go there.” She has always been interested in fitness, participating in activities such as Pilates, pole vaulting, and running everything from 5k’s to marathons. She even dabbled in triathlons by completing her first (and hopefully last) Ironman in 2013. While she had practiced reformer Pilates for several years prior to moving to Albuquerque, she had always disliked the local yoga culture. The emphasis was placed on branding and exclusivity over wellness and growth. She even went as far as telling her husband that if she ever got into yoga he should question her sanity. Fortunately, she gave SWEAT a chance and after 2 years of regularly attending classes she completed 200-hours of yoga instructor training at SWEAT in the Spring of 2017. She is excited to be joining the SWEAT family and hopes to help others realize that yoga isn't just for those with the most Instagram-worthy asanas, it's for everyone.

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.
In a flow class, postures are strung together in multiple series. As the name suggests, a practitioner can expect to “flow” from one posture to the next in this style of class, synchronizing the breath with the movement. The pace of this class is generally quicker than a static sequence, leaving less time for focus on form and alignment, but providing a vigorous cardiovascular workout. Expect up-tempo music and a more playful atmosphere. Generally, this wouldn’t be the best choice for your first yoga class, but new practitioners are always welcome. This is a great complement to a static practice because it offers variety in addition to greater focus on upper-body and core work. In the 60-minute version, expect to be on your feet almost the entire time. The 90-minute version will include a floor series. Environment – 98.6 degrees/70% humidity
