Hot Flow


This class is taught by:

Beth Day

“My yoga journey began in high school with some VHS Power Yoga tapes my mom bought. I was fascinated by the physical and mental challenge yoga could provide, as well as the never ending possibilities for growth and transformation on the mat. Over the last 20 years, I have continued being a mostly self-educated student of yoga. I used many principles of yoga during the 13 years I worked as a doula (birth coach) and childbirth educator. I began teaching yoga 8 years ago and was amazed at how much deeper and more meaningful my practice became when I was focused on creating powerful experiences for my students. I love how yoga guides me into a unique mental state of clarity and creativity where I feel truly open to the universe and connected to the divine. Yoga has strengthened and empowered me through 4 pregnancies and births, as well as through baby-raising, and child-rearing. It has focused and challenged me during periods of growth. And it has guided me and held me together in times of sadness and grief. I can’t imagine my life without yoga. It will be a lifelong pursuit.”

Off the mat, Beth is a mom of 4 amazing kids. She loves a good adventure and has a bucket list a mile long. She enjoys music, art, literature, good food and drink, time spent in nature, leisurely bike rides, quality time with family and friends, and helping others.

Courtney Sturm

"My classes bring a mix of intelligent sequencing, internal depth, breath work and challenging movement that will leave you feeling both energized and grounded. I inspire my students to practice self awareness, confidence and self love on and off the mat. I promote fluidity through asana, letting go of the mental chatter while encouraging your own experience. I teach to all levels , meeting my students with no judgement I invite them to express themselves through a moving meditation that’s authentic to them."
 
 
Courtney grew up in Wichita, Ks. In 2004 she moved to New York City to pursue her acting career! As a performer with a dance background Courtney was naturally drawn to yoga. She’s been practicing for the past decade and began teaching in 2013 after completing her 200 hour RYT yoga training at Yoga to the people in New York.

Stephanie Kelly

“I embarked on my yoga journey in the beginning of 2010, and have been actively engaged in my practice ever since. Driven by depression, and mundane day to day life routine, I summoned my out of shape chunky self, to search out something that might spark some hope in my life…..YOGA! I quickly realized that my mat was my sanctuary, and that my practice was providing me a platform to evolve, change, and eventually flourish. Self confidence, self discovery, self love, and happiness were just a few of the remarkable changes that began to take shape in my life.”

When she's not on her mat, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their 3 dogs. She loves being outdoors, working in her garden, tending her chickens, growing dahlias, riding her bike, and laughing out loud.

Arlen Goodyear

Inspired by author Stephen R. Covey’s quote, “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities,” Arlen began his yoga journey in the summer of 2014 appreciating that yoga accepts all bodies no matter how different they are. Intimidated by the chances of surrounding himself with perfectly, sculpted bodies, he attended his first class realizing quickly that being “on the mat” erased all fear, doubt, and judgment within him letting him spread with confidence, lengthen with strength, and fold with gratitude. Yoga brought more to him than the physical and mental advantages; with career relocations, he found friends, family, and community through yoga—a healthy support system to help him grow as an individual, personally and professionally.

When he's not on the mat, Arlen enjoys to cook, whether it is a complicated or uncomplicated process. “The simplicity of a grilled cheese sandwich that satisfies your hunger and offers comfort can remind you that life does not always have to be a stressful beef bourguignon."

Lynn Hancock ~ Studio Owner/Director of Teacher Training

"My journey with yoga began in my early 20's as I was experiencing the stress of 'growing up' and had heard how relaxing yoga was. I started practicing in my duplex, with a book and magazines I bought. What I discovered, was a multifaceted practice with many branches, from challenging to peaceful and restorative. Yoga makes space for everyone. With each stage in my life, marriage and motherhood, I always found myself returning to yoga as I always felt grounded and challenged after I practiced. After discovering hot yoga, I was thrilled when Cindee opened Yoga~Story. When I teach, I love the look on someone’s face when they have done a challenging pose for the first time, open a hip, melt into the mat or make a surprising realization about self and ability. When they let go, their struggle becomes their strength."

Lynn enjoys spending time with her husband and son, running, cooking, socializing and enjoying everything that Bentonville has to offer. She began her yoga journey 13 years ago and left the corporate world to become an AFAA certified personal trainer and 200 hour certified yoga instructor.

Kelsi Zahl

"For me, teaching yoga is sharing the art of living free - mind, body and spirit.  Guiding people to the edge of their comfort zones and breathing with them in that space is one of my favorite places to be.  I am a bit of an extreme artist, so I like to go all the way into the asanas and see what happens.  I like to dance on the edge of discomfort and find the breath there...this is how I teach."
Kelsi is a Nebraska native who has spent the last 10 years in California and Arizona pursing an acting career and studying Ashtanga yoga.  When Kelsi is not on the mat, she enjoys writing, singing, being in nature, cooking, making things and laughing.

Camas Maroney

“I have overcome many health hurdles in my life. Having had 12 surgeries by age 12 and spending 1 year in high school in a wheelchair, I struggled to find a form of exercise that would work for me. Four years ago I moved to NW Arkansas and landed at Yoga Story with studio owner Cindee Joslin. Cindee inspired me to really practice Yoga. I soon learned that Yoga was the answer for me. Today I find “Peace and Strength” in my everyday practice and teaching. Through Yoga I love inspiring others to overcome their health challenges. I teach our students to cultivate strength in the body and a calming presence to the mind.”
 
When off the mat Camas enjoys volunteering at her kids’ school, spending time with friends, reading, gardening, cooking and traveling. She is a 200 hr certified Yoga Instructor from Yoga Story 200 Hour Teacher Training and an RYT with Yoga Alliance. Camas furthered her education with additional training by Ray Long, Jessica O'Keefe and Jaimie Elmer.

Sarah Walker

"When my yoga journey began, I instantly knew that it was what I was destined to do, and that it would change my life. I was always an active youth, playing many sports, including volleyball during college."
 
"After I lost my athletic activity, I found I was losing my strength, my energy, and mostly myself. I had practiced yoga on and off throughout my 20’s, but didn’t truly grasp the full realm of what yoga offers. In late 2014, I found myself overweight and unhappy in a sedentary lifestyle, I knew I needed a change and nothing seemed to spark that for me. I started regularly working out at the gym, which seemed natural as a former athlete, but it wasn’t enough. I wasn’t changing anything within myself. A few months after that, I was asked if I wanted to attend an intro to yoga class, that happened to be with our very own Lynn Hancock. After that night I was hooked. Something finally clicked. I have continued a regular, almost daily practice since that evening, and not only has it changed my body, but along with that my mind and spirit. I am excited to share with others the love and support that this community offers. Let go, let live, let love!"
 
When Sarah is not on the mat, she enjoys being outdoors, kayaking, cycling, or hiking. Photography, drawing and other artistic activities
keep her busy, as well as lots of DIY projects and home renovations!
