HY Vinyasa 1

This class is taught by:

Shannon Brendel

Hi, my name is Shannon. I added yoga to raising 3 kids, 2 dogs, running, biking and striving to keep fit 2 years ago. Its been a great addition to my life giving me focus and clarity but also strength and endurance. I seek to teach people in an authentic, approachable way. I would love to help guide you in classes at Heat Yoga! Shannon completed her 200 hour yoga certification through YogaWorks in June 2012.

Veronica Walters

Veronica began her yoga journey in 2003 when she became pregnant with her first child.  Being a physically active person as a professional Mexican folkloric dancer and avid runner, Veronica wanted to continue exercising safely throughout her pregnancy.  This led her to try yoga for the first time. Yoga gave her physical strength and mental endurance which she believes she would not have found without it. An eternal student of life and spirituality, Veronica is constantly seeking knowledge specifically in Eastern philosophies and medicines. Naturally drawn to energetic healing work, she has traveled around the United States and overseas to study reiki, holistic healing and the use of crystal energy. Veronica uses her knowledge as a Reiki Master to bring awareness of the subtle body and chakra systems into her yoga classes. In 2012, Veronica joined the Heat Yoga studios community to deepen her practice.  She was inspired to pursue her teaching certificate, taking every workshop available to expand her knowledge during her training.  These included Hands on Adjustments, Working with Props, Sequencing and Restoratives. In June 2013, she earned her 200 hour certificate through Yogaworks. She is excited for the opportunity to share her knowledge and to help people heal and grow.

 “In this modern day of information overload, to which we are under constant stress and pressure ~           I believe we as a collective can find the inner strength and peace, through the teachings and practice of yoga and reiki.”  ~ Veronica Walters

Jennifer Lee

Jennifer took her first yoga class about 10 years ago. She liked the fact that she could actually slow down and still get a good workout. As a mother of 3, yoga was a really nice break and she did as much of it as she could. Jennifer’s hunger to learn more grew. So, she signed up for a yoga journal conference and took classes with Shiva Rea, Sean Corn, Cindy Lee, and other nationally known teachers. Shortly after she got back, Jennifer signed up for yoga teacher training through yogafit and started teaching in the year 2004 at Lifetime Fitness. Her desire to teach and learn has continued to grow. She has taken the 200 hour training at Corepower, completed trainings through Lifetime Fitness, and continues to take classes as much as possible.

Anna Bakke

Anna began practicing Yoga in high school as a means of getting a little more movement into her day. What started out as a hobby turned into a passion for exercise and leading an active, healthy lifestyle. Her classes have an emphasis on finding correct alignment and engagement, cultivating strength and maintaining presence. Anna completed her RYT 200 hour through Yoga Works in 2014- she has been teaching ever since. She graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Minnesota and is currently a graduate student at the U of M, studying Exercise Science. Additionally, she holds certifications in mat Pilates and Barre.

Sue Morem

Named a “Woman to Watch” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, Sue is an author and speaker who has been empowering people to “go for the edge” for over two decades. Her longtime practice and interest in alternative healing and wellness led her to receive her 200 hour yoga certification from Core Power. Her youngest daughter introduced her to yoga over 8 years ago, but it wasn’t until Sue started attending classes regularly that her chronic back pain healed. She noticed a decrease in her stress level and an increase in her over all wellbeing. Having raised three daughters and building a career over the last 20 years, yoga has helped Sue learn to slow down, find gratitude for what is and live in the moment. She is thrilled to be a part of the Heat Yoga team. She is a passionate and enthusiastic teacher and excited about sharing all that yoga has to offer!
