BeU Hot Flow (105°F-50%)

This class is taught by:

Christina Joy

When Christina’s journey with Yoga began she became fully committed experiencing the power of the present moment; coming to understand that the physical benefits are an added bonus. Christina is drawn to the spirituality and means of self-expression found through the practice. While developing a devoted study in the philosophies of meditation, asana and sacred music, she shares these teachings by infusing them into each sequence. Christina’s experiences has led her to find great empowerment through self-love, acceptance and faith. Her inspiration to teach is fueled by empowering others in effort to be of service to the community by spreading joy and love. Believing that as human beings our natural state is one of compassion, she uses the practice to return back to our true nature. Join her on the mat for a blissful experience bringing the mind, body & spirit into a state of union.

Bianca Roels

I am a UNCW student in exercise science and I first begun my yoga practice in the beginning of High School. I practiced-primarily hot yoga, almost everyday and radically changed my lifestyle to a ealthier more confident, self-aware one. Yoga brings me serenity when I need time out of my busy life... After graduating from my 200-hour teacher training I realized there was so much more depth to yoga than the cool pictures on social media. Yoga as a lifestyle helps me go through the day with mindfulness, presence and awareness... I hope to inspire as many individuals as possible with the many benefits the "technology" of Yoga brings forth.

Ashley Hemingway

Ashley found a love for yoga on the search for an addition to her current fitness regime. With a background in Division I athletics, high intensity workouts and strength training has been the foundation of her physical fitness routine. Immediately, Ashley was drawn to the upbeat vinyasa flows and core strengthening elements, but what she found when deepening her yoga practice was an overwhelming feeling of calm, a deeper spiritual connection within herself and a more centering sense of being on and off the mat. Ashley just completed the 200 hour Instructor Development Program under BeUnlimted’s owners, Matteo and Holly Zacchino and feels blessed to begin her teaching journey here at BeU. Namaste.

Lauren Hancock

Through a dedicated yoga practice, I have discovered more about myself than I ever thought possible. What originated as a way to challenge my body while healing my mind has transformed into a powerful and uplifting way of life. I aim to share this experience with my students using motivational and compassionate guidance. Inspired by all of the amazing psychological and physical benefits of a regular yoga practice, I strive to share this knowledge as well as consistently build upon it.

Gail Picillo

Gail began her yoga practice over 10 years ago when she recognized her body needed love after being a rigorous athlete. What she discovered was that the practice of yoga not only helped heal her body, but also guided her back to a positive emotional and spiritual well-being. Gail has trained with Gopi Kinnicutt, Sondra Loring, and Raghunath as a Yoga Alliance 500 hour Bhakti Instructor. She also has studied with Edwin Bryant and Radhanath Swami. With a background in psychotherapy, Gail fuses her athletic, education and yoga experiences in a light-hearted practice that will invigorate your mind, body and soul!

Megan Giedraitis

I began practicing yoga in 2012 to help recover from a back injury, but the healing experience brought so much more than physical growth. I realized that this ancient practice is a multifaceted exploration into the body, mind and soul. Life is a dynamic and continuous phenomenon where change is inevitable. Yoga allows us to develop a deeper sense of the present and the ability to accept these changes. Through my practice, this breakdown of force is nurtured from the moment I step on the mat to the moment I step off. As a UNCW psychology graduate student with a concentration in neuroscience, having the ability to share what I have learned through my scientific studies with my students has been a true blessing. I completed my 200-hour Instructor Development Program under the guidance of the beautiful and talented Deborah Leader and I am so grateful to be an even greater part of the BeUnlimited family.
This Level 1/2 Ashtanga inspired set sequence integrates the core principles of traditional hot Bikram yoga with a Vinyasa power flow. Practiced in a heated room of up to 105 °F and 50% humidity, these 75 minutes of sweaty yoga will lead you to a lifetime of bliss, strength, focus and balance. Challenge not only the body but the mind by allowing the heat and music to transport you to a meditative state of awareness. With a devoted practice this will be increasingly accessible in your everyday life, becoming a permanent extension of your personality.
