The Hot Spot Family
This is the first family of Yoga Hot Spot. Founded by Stephanie in 2011, now joined in teaching by her family; Scotty, Kenzie, Bryce, and even Bodhi helps teach a class once in a while.
Stephanie opened the doors with a young family. That family has grown over the years and so has Hot Spot. After healing her body, she was devoted to sharing this gift with as many people as she could. That still remains today.
“We are here to give you the keys to unlock your true potential…enjoy the ride. Scotty and I, along with our family and our extended yoga famiy, welcome you to our Yoga Shala, this is where the healing begins, but more importantly…LOVE GROWS HERE!”
Scotty made yoga a big part of his life in 2016 when he met Stephanie. Many of you love his laid back approach to yoga, and his calm and relaxing style of teaching. He makes yoga accessible to ALL people.
Scott and Stephanie are practicioners of Vipassana Meditation. Together they opened a mediation studio called “Mindstop Meditation”. There are elements of these teachings in all of his classes. He is also the beloved Golf Professional at the Yakima Elks, and has helped many people with the mental and physical game of golf.
Kenzie was part of the first Teacher Training held at Yoga Hot Spot when she was just 11 years old. At that time she was a gymnast, which helped her develop body awareness at a very young age. She became a fierce high school athlete competing in Track and Volleyball. Through high school, Kenzie loved yoga for injury prevention/recovery and mental focus. But it wasn’t until college, that she began to explore yoga for herself. She has a long history of yoga with mom, but while earning her degree at Western Washington University she started to understand yoga personally, not just physically but also for her mental health. She found clarity through the mental practice and kept her body strong and healthy through the pandemic. Kenzie now manages the studio and brings a youthful approach to the 2nd decade of YHS. She is still fierce, which shows up in her pilates classes, but also the softness and grace she brings when teaching yoga.
Bryce was in kindergarten when Stephanie opened the studio. He was always willing to try new things and loved getting in the postures. Bryce also participated in teacher trainings at a young age. But his focus has always been on the arts. He is a competitive hip hop dancer and a singer/song-writer. He is also a dance coach. So when Stephanie introduced Hot Pilates to the studio, Bryce was the perfect person to bring this class to life. His enthusiasm is contagious and he will always make sure you can find the beat.
Bryce is planning to attend Belmont Univertsity in Nashville next fall, to persue the arts and music production.
