200 hr E-RYT

Meredith still remembers her first time in a hot yoga studio and it was love at first sweat! Although she found yoga later in life, her background as a gymnast and University of Florida cheerleader prepared her for the physical challenges of hot yoga. Early into her time in the hot room Meredith knew she had found her passion and was quickly discovering her desire to teach and share with students the amazing benefits of hot yoga.  Meredith took a leave of absence from her corporate job to travel to Brazil for a five-week, 300-hour intensive training in the Moksha Yoga tradition. Upon her return to Kentucky she began teaching part-time developing her skills until she exited the nine-to-five world to do the work she truly loved – teaching yoga!  Meredith earned a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of Louisville and this aspect of her background influences her teaching style and how she leads class. She knows that many students begin hot yoga for the physical results and stress relief, but a good class provides the opportunity to go deeper. Her goal is to support students who are ready and willing to shift out of an everyday state of mind and into one that enables internal exploration, learning and growth.  Her teaching style is relaxed and joyful and her goal is to tailor each class to the individual and ensure every student leaves her class feeling better than they did when they came!  Her philosophy is that yoga should be accessible to all levels of ability, from beginners to advanced practitioners and it is her intention to meet all students’ levels of ability in each and every class.

Charlotte Boyd

Instructor - All Level Flow
200 hr RYT


Charlotte Boyd has been teaching yoga for three years. She first ventured onto a yoga mat at the age of fourteen while attending summer camp. Since then, she has continued to explore movement through various modalities including (but not limited to!) theater, distance running, weightlifting, and dancing with her cat. Her classes are thoughtfully fluid with a focus on building strength for longevity and healing. Charlotte teaches hatha, vinyasa and bowspring but continues to be inspired by the evolution of yoga in its many forms. Through her teaching she hopes students reconnect with their strength so that the turns of life can be met with ease and joy. When she isn’t teaching you can find her eating good food in good company, playing outside, or planning her next big adventure.

Abbey Brooks

Abbey is a 300 RYT and has made sharing yoga her life. Her intention is to create an inclusive environment where students can move freely, feel good, have fun and experience  the infinite possibilities within themselves. She believes that above all, humor is an essential ingredient in yoga and that laughter is the best core exercise there is. Abbey's humble guidance points her students towards the wisdom and strength that they already possess. Abbey's favorite style to practice and teach is vinyasa yoga, she considers yoga to be her creative outlet and loves to play with fun transitions, creative sequences, arm balances and inversions.

Carrie Irwin

Instructor - All Level Flow, Yoga Core, Yang/Yin, Hot 26, Hot Fusion
500 hr RYT

Carrie found hot yoga when she was seeking relief from chronic low back and sciatic nerve pain.  It did the trick!  With a regular practice she found amazing relief from her pain and made incredible gains in core strength, along with gaining mental focus and an enhanced ability to concentrate both on and off her mat. As her journey continued to vinyasa classes, she was amazed to find that yoga helped with symptoms of other chronic health issues and she soon expanded her practice to other types of hot yoga classes  She fell even more in love with yoga, both the physical challenges and flowing poses together, which allowed her an emotional and spiritual release she has come to cherish.  Carrie completed her 230 hour teacher training through Asheville Yoga Center in June of 2016 and immediately began seeking opportunities to teach and share her passion for yoga with others.  She is a nurturer by nature and her experiences and natural disposition have readied her to lead, teach and care for her students utilizing the transformational power of yoga.  During her free time she loves spending time with her husband, reading and hiking. Carrie is the proud mother of two adult daughters and an adult stepson. 

All Level Flow is a slower, more intentional progression of postures linked together with breath. This class is great for new students to gain familiarity with Vinyasa classes, but also a solid workout for experienced practitioners. It’s a truly balanced experience of intensity and relaxation. Props and modifications are offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures. This class is the perfect place to begin and deepen your Vinyasa practice!
