Your Best Yoga!
Bend and Zen Hot Yoga in Louisville, KY

Advanced Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Brittany Swan

Instructor - Yoga Core
200 hr RYT

Brittany was an avid barre class practitioner when she stumbled across her first hot yoga class in 2011 thinking it would be a breeze.  She was immediately humbled by the extensive practice and quickly fell in love with the heat and the practice.  Brittany soon discovered yoga was so more than just a workout and was actually a place for peace and acceptance.  Brittany admired the “messiness” of yoga and the ability to add your own flare to any flow and to any class, which kept her coming back!  She saw how the yogic philosophy could be applied to all aspects of life and decided to enroll in the Bend and Zen teacher training in January 2017 and has never looked back. She received her RYT-200 certification in March 2017.  She deeply values the responsibility of being a yoga teacher and carries that respect towards all on and off the mat. Brittany's teaching style matches her approach to life - energetic, playful and fun!  She recognizes how important it is to create a sacred space for all practitioners and the same acceptance that she found when she began her yoga journey.  When Brittany is not on her mat, she can be found watching way too much food network, listening to any NPR podcast, and managing a loving home with her husband Landon and their kids Wyatt, Watson and Luna.

 

Abica Dubay

Instructor - Power Vinyasa, Friday Flow
300 hr RYT
 
Abica started practicing yoga seriously while attending college at Calarts in Los Angeles. She learned quickly the calming and quieting effects this practice could offer her in her hectic college life. She continued to practice out of college, while living in LA, becoming increasingly curious about different styles of yoga and getting addicted to that “ahhhh” feeling yoga has to offer. After finding vinyasa flow, she was hooked. She received her ERYT 200 hr training from Ella Cojocaru in 2013 and has been teaching ever since. A few years later, she became passionate about Restorative and Yin yoga as it seemed to complement her stronger style flow so well. She added a Restorative training and an extensive Yin training to her resume and has been offering that smooth, sweet balance of strength and mobility in her classes ever since. She was teaching full time in LA and recently decided to move back to her home town, Louisville KY with her fiancé and 2 (heart crushingly adorable) Black Labs. In Louisville, she is bringing her west coast style of Vinyasa flow and helping students connect on a deeper level through Yin and Restorative.

Jessie Schook

Instructor - Yoga HIIT
200 hr RYT

Jessie is a Louisville native who first found yoga while living in Spain. She completed her teacher training in 2015 at Corepower Yoga in Chicago. When she is not on her mat you can find her working at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana, spending time with her cats and fiancé and surveying pizzas and beers with dedication and commitment!  Jessie’s yoga philosophy is that yoga should be fun. It should make you smile and you should always leave feeling empowered. Her personal catch phrase for life is “Shoulda gone to yoga!” -to the tune of “Shoulda had a V8.” She enjoys making her students smile and laugh. Most of her regulars know when she has been watching Instagram again. Jessie is committed to keeping her classes fresh and unique. Expect to experiment and explore funky transitions and interesting variations of poses.  Jessie always strives to make sure there is something for everyone, whether today is a ‘child’s pose every other posture’ kind of day, or a ‘handstand in between every posture’ kind of day you will leave feeling strong and powerful!
