Bikram Yoga

This class is taught by:

Dana Vasquez

Beginning my yoga journey in 2003, I was hooked from the first classed; the intensity, the connection, the sweat. I loved the challenge and the states of bliss. I became a teacher in the fall of 2006, and have continued to be in awe of the amazing magic and the many layers of yoga on and off the mat! I feel so blessed and grateful to be able to lead and share with people on this life's path!

Melissa Domingo

I found my yoga practice in 2009, and 6 months later decided to go to yoga training. I received my Bikram Yoga certification in 2010, and I my yin yoga certification in 2015. I am also currently enrolled in the College of Ayurveda, which is the sister science of yoga. I look forward to continuing to grow with my practice, studying the knowledge behind yoga and Ayurveda, and sharing this knowledge along the way.

Laurie Popovac

I’ve practiced Bikram Yoga since 2013 and have been teaching since 2016. I always try to bring lightness and humor to my life. Humor is often the best medicine, so I bring some of this lightness into my classes. To be able teach and learn from my students has been rewarding and fulfilling. When I'm not in the hot room, you can find me busy with my hair business as an independent hairstylist.


Ashley Flowers

I took my first Bikram Yoga class two weeks after moving to Sacramento from Mississippi in 2012, and was hooked from my very first class. I initially went to class in search of a full-body workout that I could enjoy, but ultimately found so much more than that as my practice continued. I found that it provided a perfect balance to my life as a nurse. It greatly reduced my stress and anxiety, gave me the energy and agility needed to make it through long shifts, and I was able to experience relief from pain caused by herniated discs in my back. practicing for a year and a half, I decided to go to teacher training in 2014 so I could learn more and share this healing practice with others. I am thankful every day that I found this practice and I am constantly inspired by seeing the change it makes in others’ lives as well

Julie Havelock

I attended my first Bikram yoga class to stretch out and give therapy to my sore muscles and back pain. I immediately became hooked. I had never experienced a total body workout that gave me so much energy and such a complete sense of well-being. I became convinced this style of yoga was the key to superior health and wellness. An unanticipated but important bonus was how much this yoga was helping my sleep, moods, blood pressure, stress level, cholesterol levels, and countless other things I couldn’t see or feel. Through all my trials and tribulations, yoga has always been a source of solace for me. My goal is to bring the healing of yoga to anyone who wants to be part of our community. I hope you find Purely Hot Yoga to be a friendly and supportive place. I hope you discover the healing, sense of peace and well-being that so many others have found through this practice.
