About Us

Lienette Crafoord

studio owner/Hot26/Hot vinyasa/HiiT

After more than 10 years of practicing various styles of yoga, Lienette found the Bikram series as she was seeking a deeper practice in an effort to avoid injury while training for her first marathon. Falling in love with the series immediately, she knew that she wanted to share the yoga from her first class in Seattle, WA. Lienette went on to run the Dublin Marathon pain and injury free.

A year later (2001) she went to train with Bikram Choundry and became certified to teach this powerful series. For 3 years Lienette answered the call of many studios opening/managing/teaching through the US and Canada. As she continued with sport - marathons, triathlons, mountain climbing, skiing, etc. yoga has remained a constant.

"Yoga is my sanity - it grounds me, keeps me humble, challenges me, rewards me and it gives me clarity. It allows everything that doesn't serve me in the moment to fall away so that I can hear my truth. Sharing the mind body connection with others is an incredible gift that keeps me in gratitude daily."


Alejandro 

Hot vinyasa/Hot26

Breath-focused, balancing strong, physical alignment with heart-centered, meditative connection. Welcoming to all-levels of practitioners; challenging but accessible. Always trying to keep up a sense of fun and light-heartedness. Hot26 classes follow the traditional sequence. Breath-focused, with steady timing and more direct alignment instruction.

Alejandro has practiced Vinyasa and Hot26 yoga for more than 10 years and hopes to share some of the joy and strength he finds in yoga.

I use Yoga as a metaphor for life. I think that a yoga journey should be fun! I am not saying that the practice not be challenging or that it will encourage you to test and expand your limits, but yoga is about your own personal journey. I want my journey to be a fun one! I am a 225-hr Registered Yoga Instructor, and I’m also a real person, and I recognize that I’m teaching real people.

Each class that I teach has its own beat, a vibration, and its own pulse. I choose each pose with alignment based focused that I believe helps us deepen our yoga experience/practice. As a young man I found that dance helped me move through those hard times. I use my dance background to help create interesting and original sequencing that allows my students to move like themselves. I believe that through movement, we thrive. Through movement you can find your own rhythm and connect to your own truth.

Tess

Hot Vinyasa

Hi! I'm Tess. Born and raised in Southampton, I've spent the last several years exploring the globe, immersing myself in various cultures, and cultivating a deep connection with mama Earth & the human experience. I've been practicing yoga for 10+ years and became a teacher in 2019 after studying Vinyasa & Ashtanga in Rishikesh, India. My classes consist of intuitive, creative flow, designed to guide you back to your inner being. I always start class with a short meditation and intention setting session before inviting fluid movement into the body, focusing on body-mind-breath connection.
