HEATED Vinyasa Yoga - Level 2


This class is taught by:

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).

Kara Nefouse

Kara Nefouse began practicing yoga in 2003 when the stress of a corporate desk job drove her to return to some of the purer elements of life. Having grown up in the fitness industry and enthusiastically participating in adventure racing, she was compelled to seek solace in some type of physical pursuit. This instinct, in a dual attempt to exercise both mind and body, led her to the practice of yoga. By 2009 Kara’s practice evolved into a full time career. In conjunction with her yogic roots, she is equally skilled and certified in Pilates, Spinning, Kettlebell and Personal Training. The core tenets of her approach are alignment, awareness and diversity. Kara takes frequent sojourns to spiritually stimulating destinations (Europe, Central America, Asia) to further her on-going education and refresh her knowledge of current teachings. The most recent trip was to Thailand, where she spent a month with Briohny Smyth and Dice Iida-Klein and received her 200-Hour Fit-Flow-Fly Certification. Kara is a big believer in continuing education and has completed numerous workshops with names like Maty Ezraty, Kathryn Budig, Noah Maze, Kino MacGregor and Sadie Nardini. Any class she instructs will be an open incorporation of new information, and insight into a mindfully practiced routine. Kara’s students experience a challenging and fun class, leaving them feeling refreshed and energized!

Stephanie Martinez

Stephanie attended her first yoga class in 2009. She always used exercise as a way of dealing with the stresses of college and work life, and she quickly fell in love with yoga. Yoga allowed her to deal with anxiety, while gaining breath awareness and strengthening her body. Stephanie completed her 200 hour teacher training in August 2014 at Invoke Studio under Ahna Hoke and Chuck Crosby. Stephanie teaches vinyasa classes that focus on connecting the breath with each movement. Stephanie believes that yoga should be approached with lightheartedness and offers classes that will calm the mind and open the heart.

Erin Morgan

Erin’s love of dance was what first drew her to the lines of energy and fluid movement of yoga. Like so many, the physical practice is where she began her journey. In college she retreated to her mat as a way to manage stress and get the creative juices flowing. Erin became more immersed in yoga during the time she spent living in California. During this time she began to feel the pull to share the healing power of yoga with others. She completed her 200hr training under the guidance of Carmen Fitzgibbon. Erin truly believes that yoga has the power to change lives. Her vinyasa teaching is a lighthearted blend of strength, breath, affirmation and flow. She hopes that students leave practice more aware of their own awesomeness, with the freedom to think, act, move and love with more authenticity.

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.

Laura Henderson

From Community Yoga to the Detox Bootcamp workshops, Laura’s classes are challenging, mindful, dynamic and organically soulful experiences of vinyasa for all levels. Believing the best teachers always remain curious students, Laura continues to explore and evolve her yoga life by attending workshops and trainings. Her continued journey as a student of yoga and Pilates keeps her classes fresh, and enables her to create sequencing that offers students new perspectives from which to understand a pose, their practice, and themselves. Laura received her Pilates mat training with the Physical Mind Institute in 2003, her 200-hour Yoga Alliance Registered training in 2006, attended Pilates reformer training with Balanced Body Institute in 2006, and completed prenatal yoga training in 2007. You can find her “beyond the mat” approach to yoga in all of her regularly scheduled Invoke classes, and in her soul-challenging Detox Bootcamp workshops.

Kevin Lemons

Kevin first discovered yoga in a university course, when his curiosity led him to an immediate experience with asana that forever changed his approach to physical fitness and spirituality. Since then, Kevin has had nearly two decades of hatha yoga practice, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area. He studied under Bija Pretzel France, who taught him the importance of dedicated training and channeling energy in order to safely push boundaries of the body and mind. Kevin has since graduated from Invoke’s teacher training under the guidance of Ahna Hoke, who has helped him to refine his focus on alignment and further explore yogic philosophy. He is drawn to the dynamic, varying flow of vinyasa classes, and teaches with an emphasis on body placement and linking breath to movement while exploring new poses. He believes that yoga should be at times challenging, restorative, invigorating and calming, but always empowering and life-enhancing.

Ahna Hoke

Ahna began practicing yoga in 1995 in her central Pennsylvania hometown. She has been teaching since 2001 and is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level. Ahna has studied extensively at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts, as well as in the style of Anusara Yoga. Over the years she has studied with many world renowned teachers receiving 1200 hours of training in different modalities of Hatha Yoga. The life affirming philosophy of Anusara Yoga along with its elegant principles of alignment have influenced her personal practice to become more graceful and heart centered. In addition, she has over 135 hour of advanced pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation training and feels strongly that the breath is the link that brings the mind, body, and spirit together. With the practice of pranayama, proper alignment, and opening to the flow of life, she will lead you through a practice that is uplifting and strengthening, inviting the wisdom of your heart to direct you into a state of self awareness. Ahna's teachings are down to earth and include plenty of playfulness and humor. She has a deep passion for anatomy & physiology, meditation and pranayama and is the director and primary teacher of Invoke Yoga Studio's accredited 200 hour yoga teacher training program. She enjoys instructing beginners as well as advanced practitioners.

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!

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.
