HEATED Vinyasa Yoga - Level 2

This class is taught by:

Megan Zirkelbach

Megan began her yoga journey after having her daughter in 2006. She quickly realized yoga was more than just a physical exercise. It began to help her with the stress and anxiety of life, when she stepped off the mat she had inner peace that she couldn't explain. Megan has been practicing everyday since. During a meditation workshop she heard the instructor say "once you see, you'll eventually know" and from that point on Megan knew teaching yoga would be a part of her path. She received her 200 hrs YTT in April of 2014 at Sanctuary, Mind, Body, and Spirit under Tom and Daphne Larkin in Nashville, Tn. Her practice and teaching is a mix of vinyasa flow and the power of ashtanga yoga. She loves handstands and inversions but appreciates the beauty and fundamentals of all poses that are at the core of building strength and balance.

Cheryl Milton

Cheryl began her Yoga practice in 2001, after the birth of her first child Addison. At the time yoga was introduced to Cheryl she had just left a high-paced sales job to become a full time mom and was entering her seventh year teaching group fitness. Cheryl received her yoga training in Coastal Virginia. She trained with a focus in the tradition of the Hot Yoga Series and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Cheryl was the Director and Lead Teacher for the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program for Zen Hot Yoga Studio Virginia Beach, as well as the Founder and Lead Teacher for Passion Yoga School’s 2014 Yoga Teacher Training Program. She now leads Invoke's Yoga Alliance Certified 100 & 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Invoke Wellness Center. Cheryl draws inspiration to teach and practice from her busy daily life: approaching her mat being open to explore, accept, reaffirm her passion for life and cultivate peace. 

Megan Hochstetler

Megan was introduced to yoga by a dear friend in early 2009 as a way to gain more flexibility and incorporate balance into her fitness regimen. Yoga quickly became the forefront of Megan’s life as it opened up not only her body, but her mind. Megan has experienced a variety of benefits in her life as a result of her personal yoga practice, and through teaching she hopes to help her students discover the many joys of yoga in their own lives. She encourages students to challenge themselves and also honor and respect their own bodies during their yoga practice. Megan enjoys the hotness of a heated vinyasa class as well as a rockin’ playlist where she can let others feel the vibrations in each breath. Megan believes that everyone is capable of breathing and therefore anyone can come to the mat to practice yoga. Megan received her 200-hour teacher training in Indianapolis, IN and is a RYT with Yoga Alliance. Megan is constantly continuing her study of yoga and is currently pursuing her 500-hour advanced teacher training certification through Invoke Studio.

Jay C. Prouty

Jay’s yoga journey began in February 2015 recovering from a sports injury. After a year of daily practice he enrolled in a 200-hour teacher-training program and has been teaching ever since. His passion and authenticity shine through a powerful teaching style, with enthusiastic cuing, focusing on safety, utilizing correct posture and hands on alignment as well as in-depth breathing techniques. Jay leads by example through dedication, hard work and endless self-inquiry.

Danielle Vetter

Danielle started practicing yoga to compliment distance running in 2009. She loved the peace, stillness, and whole-body relaxation yoga brought. Danielle completed her 200 Hour Yoga Training in Indianapolis in January of 2015. Her classes are upbeat, athletic, and connect breath work with a strong physical practice. She hopes her classes will offer students a chance to find strength, a deeper understanding of their bodies, and balance and peace in their lives.

Off the mat, you can find Danielle hiking, boxing, or rocking out to a concert at White River State Park. Danielle holds a BS and MPA from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers).

Yvonne Rodriguez

Yvonne’s journey began in 2005 when a friend insisted she attend a Yoga class with her. From that first experience on the mat, her passion for Yoga was born. Since then, she has been drawn towards both the spiritual and physical components of yoga and the constant challenges that it provides her. Yvonne completed her first training in 2009 with Christina Sell. Relocating to Indianapolis from Texas, Yvonne utilized the lessons learned on her mat to aid in her transition to this beautiful city where she completed her second 200 hr training under Eric Bryant and Ahna Hoke. Yoga has become a fundamental way of life for her, allowing an outlet to cope with one's daily struggles. Yvonne believes that anyone can benefit from practicing yoga whether it be to heal a physical ailment or provide guidance for one’s life toward a positive transformation and enlightenment. Her style cultivates a playful environment where movement with breath and the yoking of body, mind, and spirit are encouraged.

Courtney Summitt

Courtney began her yoga practice in undergrad at IU Bloomington in 2011. She was drawn to the challenge and detoxing sweat of heated classes for physical health. She quickly fell in love with the mind body connection she experienced as her practice grew to a deeper level and embraced yoga as an essential part of her holistic wellness, stress management, and life balance. Courtney loves anatomy and working with how the body moves which led to her career as a physical therapist. She received her RYT 200 hour in 2018 and is excited to combine the passions of her work. She loves teaching, exploring new ideas/research, and assisting individuals in progressing toward their personal goals. In her yoga classes, you’ll find creative vinyasa flows with focus on alignment, muscle energy techniques, mind body connection, and breath work to promote systemic relaxation and balance. Courtney believes that yoga is for every body, and her goal for each class is that students leave feeling confident and empowered in the growth of their personal practice.

Brooke Lutgring

Brooke began practicing yoga three years ago in search of adding variety to her exercise routine. She graduated from IU with a degree in Health Fitness Specialty, but was hesitant to try yoga because she was unsure if she could calm her busy mind for an entire hour. Brooke instantly fell in love with the practice. Shortly after, she signed up for teacher training at Invoke Yoga Studio in the fall of 2015. Her goal for each class is to create a fun, high energy environment that leaves each person feeling empowered and confident in themselves. Outside of Invoke, Brooke works as an Electrophysiologist Device Technician at Indiana Heart Physicians. Becoming a yoga teacher has brought her much happiness and solidifies her passion to help others and encourage their wellbeing. Join her in class to see what she can offer you!

Todd Gulizia

Todd began practicing yoga in 2011 to improve his performance as a cross country and track athlete at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He instantly fell in love with the movements and developed a daily practice. In 2013, he completed teacher training through Lotus House of Yoga with Carole Westerman and Mary Clare Sweet in Omaha, Nebraska. Influenced by the teachings of Shiva Rea, Donna Farhi, and various somatic disciplines, he offers a fluid, dynamic approach to cultivating strength, grace, relaxation, and embodied awareness.

Christine Ghinder

Christine Ghinder's yoga journey began in the spring of 2013 in a yoga practice and theory course at The Ohio State University. Yoga became a physical supplement to her lifelong dance practice, but she found that yoga was an even greater supplement to her life mentally and emotionally. Christine graduated from OSU in 2016 with a BFA in Dance, a degree that brought her knowledge in kinesiology and Alexander technique, which has helped her to understand alignment within yoga. Christine did her 200-hour YTT with Soul Ascension Yoga in July of 2016 and moved to Indianapolis in August of 2017, where she quickly became part of the Invoke community. Her classes challenge the body and center the mind. Christine hopes to help her students expand their physical practice as well as their capacity for self-love.

Laura Henderson

Laura seeks to honor the union of yoga on and off the mat in her classes. Her classes are fun, thoughtful, and her flows organize progressive elements and pose sequences toward a peak pose. Laura offers a space that is open and instructional, encouraging students to explore the balance between honoring where they are and challenging themselves. She hopes students leave class with a smile on their face, and a sense that somehow the time on their mat leaves them stronger and more open to face all the beauty, magic, and challenges that life holds. Laura’s first encounter with yoga was in a philosophy book, and it changed her life. Several years later in 2004, yoga became a life-saving practice when Laura lost her brother. Laura took to her mat daily to breathe and be in her body as a respite from her spinning mind and grieving heart. Exploring and building strength in her physical body helped her find deeper strength to live with and through grief. Learning to do poses she never imagined she could, gave her the courage to start her own non-profit to contribute to the change she wants to see in the world (Growing Places Indy, 2009). Still daily, her practice helps her cultivate strength, flexibility, adaptability, forgiveness, compassion, and a comfort with failure and discomfort that empower her continued growth as a mother, spouse, family, friend, co-worker, teacher, human. Laura’s own experiences of the power of yoga in her life are what drive her desire and commitment to teach. Laura completed her 200-hour YTT in vinyasa yoga in 2006, and completed prenatal teacher training in 2007. She has been teaching at Invoke since January 2007. Laura has also done numerous trainings with Off the Mat, Into the World, Embody Love Movement, Y12SR, and CTZNWELL. She continues to explore different styles, teachers, workshops, trainings, books and more, believing that a teacher must always remain a curious and committed student.
