Sarah Wolton

Yoga to me is about changing lives, not only changing and benefiting your own life but in the process emphatically bringing goodness to each and every being around you. The result, a brighter, more vibrant, joyful and sweet whole – inside and out. Make peace with yourself, strengthen your body, mind and soul and open up to possibility. It’s not a secret that yoga can transform lives but the choice is ultimately yours, to go with the flow or resist it. Power Vinyasa trained (completion of Level 1 & 2), 10 years of teaching experience, Founder of The Hot Box Yoga and VNYSA (8+ years experience in the business of yoga). I stay inspired through my personal practice on and off the mat, and am excited to offer my teachings to empower you to live boldly and courageously!

Lina Fang (She/Her)

I found yoga through an initial desire for movement, but it was an entry point that led me to become a teacher and embody various other life-changing practices. My goal is to help my students learn to trust their bodies and to be proud to inhabit them. My style of teaching embraces mindful movements focused on improving mobility, body & spatial awareness, and bringing more play into the day. I want students to leave the mat feeling more open, mentally and physically. I see the physical practice as a method of empowering students to discover all the other amazing offerings of yoga. ​I am also passionate about mental health and I always work to combine my knowledge about mental wellness with Asana. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Materials Engineering, and I am in the process of completing my Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology.
