From my first vinyasa class 21 years ago, I knew yoga was for me for the rest of my life. Did I practice and teach yoga in another life? I especially enjoy introducing yoga to those who think they are too stiff, or sore, or injured or old. Not true! Come try a class with me! I am grateful to share my enthusiasm and expertise in each class that I am fortunate to teach. I especially love the moment when class finishes and everyone experiences the deep peace, satisfaction and enjoyment of the yoga experience. What can I offer and share? Only the best of what has been given to me.

I like to remind students that yoga is a lifelong practice and that there is no rush, or pressure, to learn everything all at once; encouraging students to move through their practice with self kindness. My classes consist of a strong, steady flow with an emphasis on connecting to, and moving with the breath. I offer alignment cueing and pose variations that allow students to embrace the notion that every pose looks and feels different in every body. I approach each class recognizing that each time we step on our mat is a chance to learn about ourselves.
I am always grateful for the honor of being a part of a student’s practice and the opportunity to share my love of yoga

I am always amazed at the strength and capabilities of these awesome bodies we are blessed to walk in every day. One of my favorite quotes is: “I’m in competition with only myself; I simply want to be a better me today than I was yesterday”. Yoga certainly supports this journey bringing balance and strength; both on and off your mat. The mind body connection developed through a practice of breath and movement brings us to a deeper understanding of ourselves and allows us to come from a place of grounded awareness. This practice may begin in a physical form, but has a magical way of tapping into the deeper self each and every time you come to the mat.
I hope you’ll join me as we move through creative, challenging and energetic asanas; building strength and balance together. Namaste

My classes are guided by intention as we build heat in our breath-to-movement flow and create a sacred, healing space together. My classes often conclude with longer held stretches and a prioritized, extended rest. I believe yoga can provide a space for growth & healing for the physical, mental, and spiritual self and feel honored to hold space for others as a yoga teacher

Personally, I strive to create an embodied life full of movement, inner-connection, nature, and spirituality. Outside of the studio you can often find me exploring the local parks with my son, enjoying a yummy bagel and coffee, or snuggling on the couch with my kittens.

I have always been involved with exercise, whether working out, taking a yoga class, or going for family walks.

After taking my first Pilates class I was amazed! It was so fun and made me feel strong! When my second child started school I enrolled in Pilates teacher training with Peak Pilates. It was a 6-month training where I was certified in 2010 to teach Mat and Reformer classes. In 2011/12 I was certified by Power Pilates to teach beginner, intermediate and advanced Mat Pilates.

I then discovered BarSculpt. BarSculpt is called “Pilates evolved” and that’s exactly how it felt. In 2012 I was certified to teach BarSculpt level 1 and 2 and in 2013 level 3. I wanted to expand on barre and was trained in bootybarre and certified in 2015. I love the way bootybarre compliments BarSculpt and Pilates.

Pilates and barre have changed my life. I have such passion for how good it makes me feel. I love to teach others and share the fun, strength and possibilities. It’s amazing to see people realize their own abilities.

The spirit of Inferno Hot Pilates is working out in a group, being cheered on, and being inspired. When everyone moves together, with a good beat, and in sync, you can feel the harmony radiating through the room. That feeling of being in tune with those around you, while getting a great sweat on, is the intense workout your body craves.
I invite you to come and experience it with us.

Emily Holt-Gosselin
Emily Holt-Gosselin Yoga Teacher
Emily loves to incorporate breath-work, meditation, and philosophical elements into her classes in an effort to emphasize the power of this practice, not only on a physical level, but mental and spiritual as well. Her classes tend to be light hearted, upbeat, and moderately-paced with plenty of options for rest and modification.

Her primary intention as a teacher (and human) is to offer a space where folks can learn to develop a deeper sense of self-trust, discernment, body acceptance, and self compassion in an effort to not only uplift themselves, but the greater community as well.

Emily’s personal values greatly influence how she teaches. Both personally and professionally, Emily challenges toxic narratives that can pervade some wellness spaces including diet culture, ableism, classism, and spiritual bypassing. This, she believes, is an important way to honor yoga’s radical roots which encourage more than just individual self-optimization. She feels strongly that individual liberation is directly tied to collective liberation. Yoga—in the comprehensive sense of the word—is a rich practice that allows us to explore this concept of unity and put it into action.

Thembie is a delight. She is so passionate about yoga you can’t help but catch fire with enthusiasm and fervor. It helps that she teaches Bikram hot yoga. Here instruction is precise and deliberate so you can dive deep into the poses and carry the results of flexibility and relaxation with you for the rest of the day.
Jenifer Bentch
Jenifer BentchYoga Teacher
My love of yoga began 17 years ago when I discovered power vinyasa. My original training is in Baptiste Power Vinyasa but I often combine several yoga styles in my classes. My classes are based on building strength through creativity, breath and the occasional dad joke. Each class is designed around a peak pose that is attempted (or not, you do you) towards the end of our flow. I love encouraging students to try things that are unfamiliar and get them out of their comfort zone. I believe yoga should push us to discover new things and allow us to laugh at ourselves.

I love teaching classes that are challenging, adaptable to all skill levels and fun. Plank holds, boat pose, arm balancing, savasana….I love it all.

Jamie Bedard
Jamie BedardYoga Teacher
Hello there, I’m Jamie! I have been a yoga practitioner for many years and recently completed my 200 hour teacher training with Yoga Academy. I am new to teaching yoga but not to the teaching world. By day I am an art teacher who plays with paint, builds with clay, makes messes with students, and supports their creativity. In both of these teaching roles I want to encourage growth, confidence, compassion, and self-love. As a yogi I hope to help nurture my students’ practice with breath awareness, building strength, making connections, finding joy and love for our unique bodies with a vinyasa flow grounded in kindness and silliness. When I’m not in the studio (yoga or art) I can be found walking my dog, grabbing breakfast, hiking, or painting murals around town

Zach Wilson
Zach WilsonYoga Teacher RYT-200
Zach was was drawn to yoga through the management of Lyme disease related body pain and brain fog. Focus on intentional movement, breath quality and meditation helped navigate many unknowns throughout treatment. After completing his 200 hour YTT certification at Evolution Physical Therapy & Yoga in 2019, he knew he wanted to share his knowledge with family, friends, and Burlington area community. His experience teaching and treating patients as a Physical Therapist Assistant since 2016 compliment each other to instruct classes with emphasis on modification, progression, and education to allow for participants to make intentional choices. Yoga has created a framework for deeper understanding of movement, breathing, and mental concentration. Zach is grateful to share this practice with others as it has been so impactful on his life.
