I’ve fallen in love with BeHot yoga and the fitness side as well! I love the energy and positivity that has been created! I’d never taken a barre class in my life but I fell in love with it anyways! I have a small dance background but had never tried ballet. Even if you’re not a dancer you can do barre! So excited to share my new passion with everyone and help people feel confident and amazing about themselves! You’ll be amazed at what you can do if you just try!

Years ago, Amber tried out a yoga class at BeHot and was inspired by the instructor’s passion for yoga, and became instantly hooked to the way practicing yoga enhanced her sport of running. Yoga loosened up tight muscles, allowed for improved flexibility, and challenged pre-conceived mental barriers that were ready to be broken through.

My name is Sage and I moved from Oklahoma to Southern Utah 4 years ago to finish high school at Tuacahn, I quickly fell in love with the arts and the Southwest. I started practicing yoga 7 years ago and I loved the overall health benefits and relaxation it brought to my life as a stressed out teenager. I’ve wanted to try aerial yoga for a long time but never had the opportunity until last year! Since then, I’ve become a certified Aerial Yoga instructor and have been teaching in very small groups, but now I’m ecstatic to have the opportunity to teach full classes at the Be Hot Yoga Studio! Bringing this practice to the people of St. George is a dream come true. Outside of yoga, I also have begun other aerial arts including aerial hammock dance and aerial hoop. In addition, I’m a dog mom to a 6 Year old papillon dog named Trolley and he’s my best friend FURever! I also like to participate in Polynesian style dance with wonderful people of Siva Pasefika. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you, thanks a bunch
