Knoxville Instructors

Meet the real hot yoga team of certified yoga instructors at our Knoxville studio.

(Showing 1 - 15 of 22)
Tracie is a gym junkie who began her yoga practice in 2001. Her main practice has always been Vinyasa Power Yoga but whenever possible, she believes there is nothing better than a Yin class to encourage relaxation.

She completed her RYT-200 hour Yoga Alliance Certification and enjoys teaching all levels of Vinyasa to help students increase strength and flexibility.

Yoga is a great physical and mental workout and Tracie’s goal is to make yoga fun for everyone willing to practice. She feels yoga is a lifelong practice and perfection is a myth so her classes are never too serious.

Casey was born and raised in sunny southern California. She has been teaching Power Vinyasa Yoga since 2014 and truly feels it is her calling. Casey’s classes are filled with fun, great music, and high energy. Her goal is that students leave their mats feeling revitalized, confident, and inspired.
She has a passion for nurturing wholeness in others, specifically through the practice of yoga and aromatherapy.
When not on her mat, Casey can be found reading, singing karaoke, drinking insane amounts of coffee, and road tripping across the U.S. with her husband and three kids.
Erin is a graduate of our Johnson City studio’s Baptiste inspired, 200 hour teacher training. She began her practice 8 years ago as a supplement to long distance running, but soon realized that yoga had so much more to offer than just ‘stretching’. Over the years, she has explored many different types of yoga, but has found particular love for the energetic and strengthening nature of power yoga.
By day, Erin works as a food scientist and has a passion for developing foods that support an active lifestyle. Her classes will follow suit by focusing on strength building and the development of the mind-body connection.
Faaron was initially drawn to yoga as an alternative to the gym and running because at a young age she began to see the result of years of impact on her joints. Her mother had been doing yoga for about a year and convinced her to to try it... the rest, as they say, is history!
She fell in love with Yoga! And in April of 2017 decided to take the 200 hour teacher training at our Johnson City studio.
Faaron is a hair stylist by trade and spends much of her life helping people gain confidence through their looks. She has since found that through teaching yoga she can help people find confidence in who they are outside of that. She believes teaching yoga is the perfect platform to help people love themselves where they are, and grow a little every day!
A former dancer, Jamie took her first yoga class a few years ago when she was in search of exercise and self-expression, much like dancing. What she found in yoga was exactly what she was looking for, and so much more.
Not only was yoga a great workout, but it taught Jamie to be present and grounded while challenging the mind and body. These factors are what inspired Jamie to get her 200-hour certification in 2016, so she could share her passion for yoga with others.
Jamie loves teaching Power Flow classes because of its dance-like quality, using upbeat music and new sequences in every class to inspire her students to work to their highest potential.
5 years ago, when a running injury plagued her to no end, Sarah searched for ways to heal and rehabilitate. There began her love and gratitude for yoga! Her first introduction was a steamy Bikram class, and she was hooked!
Seeing yoga as the means in which to heal and strengthen both body and mind, Sarah wanted to share this love of yoga with others. She completed her 500 hour RYT through Evolation Yoga in NYC and now teaches both the Real Hot Series and Power Yoga.
Sarah and her family are new to Knoxville and are excited to meet new people, explore new places, hike, run, paddleboard, and eat great food. She is thrilled to make Real Hot Yoga her new yoga home away from home!
Many of you already know Dian and her beautiful practice from taking class with her. Dian has been practicing Bikram yoga for many years and began practicing our Real Hot series since 2014. But did you know that Dian is also a yoga teacher specializing in this particular hot series? In 2016 Dian completed a 500-hour yoga teacher training that specifically focused on this series and style of yoga. We are very lucky to have her filling in occasionally as part of our Real Hot Yoga family. 
Stephanie found yoga in search for a new workout routine. After practicing for about a month, she learned yoga was challenging in so many more
ways than expected and fell in love with how it challenged her balance, strength, breath, patience, and ability to stay present in the moment.
For a while the fitness kept her coming back to her mat. But after moving away from the community and being faced with challenges of being alone in a new place and unbalanced in her life, she learned that a regular yoga practice was the way to maintain balance.
Going back to the fundamentals on her mat taught her of living presently, breathing through life's challenges,
finding inner strength, being patient with what she's been given
at this moment, gratitude for what her body and mind are capable of are
just a few benefits.
The practice of yoga is exactly what you make of it... If you want to find strength, that's what the mat will give you. If you want to find balance - the mat will give you balance. If you
want to find your true self, that's exactly what the mat will give
you... This is what Stephanie wants to foster and inspire both in her own practice and through leading others in theirs.
Her teacher training at Asheville
Yoga Center has led her on a journey of self growth and provided the
fundamentals and philosophy of yoga to inspire others.
As a lifelong runner, Brandie had always used yoga as a means of counteracting the stress running put on her body. It was also a way of dealing with the demands of being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. It wasn't until she discovered the Baptiste methodology that she really fell in love with yoga and kissed her running shoes goodbye.
Baptiste yoga not only met the physical intensity that Brandie loved from running, but it also helped her to create space, awareness, peace, and confidence in her life on and off the mat. She has since had the privilege of training with Baron Baptiste and other well-known yoga teachers. 
Brandie finished her Baptiste training in late 2016 and immediately began teaching at Real Hot Yoga to get her required 100 teaching hours. Through teaching at Real Hot Yoga she acquired the required hours and hands-on experience to become Knoxville's first Baptise Certified teacher. 
Brandie is thrilled to continue sharing her passion for Baptiste Power Yoga at Real Hot Yoga. 
Karen started on her fitness journey 30 years ago; Body Building, Aerobics, Tennis, Personal Training, Spin, Pilates, and finally YOGA. She accidently fell into teaching, started training in all the above disciplines, and became a certified instructor.
For yoga specifically, she completed two 200 RYT sessions, with a strong emphasis on Hatha, Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti Yoga. Her desire to watch and teach and help people break through and become strong and confident are her motivation behind teaching and seeing the amazing. She also enjoys witnessing the physical, mental and emotional shifts that people make through exercise.
Everything she trained for before yoga, was her preparation for yoga. Yoga finds us when we are ready. Those who are inflexible, need yoga to become more flexible. Those who are weak, need yoga to become strong. Those who are stressed, need yoga to become relaxed. She hopes to see you on the mat soon!
Joanna Goan is an ERYT-200 & RYT-500 Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. Her teaching style incorporates a rigorous practice to deepen your journey into strength, mindfulness, endurance, and flexibility. She takes pride in the energy she brings to her students and will always encourage you to push your edge far beyond the limitations of your mind.

In addition to being a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with the Commission on Dietetic Registration for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Joanna is also currently enrolled in a Health Coach Training Program to become a Nationally Board Certified Health Coach. She embraces the significance of an overall healthy lifestyle that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit to realize personal transformation. 

Keaton is one of our top graduates from our 2015 Real Hot Yoga 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training. We are excited to welcome him to our team of exceptional instructors.
Keaton, in turn, is excited to share his knowledge and passion of yoga with all of you. 
Gary was one of our top graduates from our 2015 Real Hot Yoga 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training. 

Since then he's become an important part of our team and been voted as one of the top yoga instructors in Knoxville.

Gary is known for his creativity both in the sequencing of his classes as well as playlists. 

Gary's philosophy in yoga (and life) is "you don't have to be perfect, you just have to be present." All you have to do is show up and have fun - in Gary's classes and in your life!

Kristi first discovered yoga in Boulder, CO but committed to a steady practice when she moved to Nashville in 2008.  With a committed practice she became stronger, had more energy and started to eat and sleep better. On days she practiced her mind was more centered, she was more accepting and patient with those around her.
In 2012 she decided to take teacher training, completed her RYT200, and immediately started teaching Hot Hatha and Power Yoga in Nashville.
Her goal is to create a space, where students are challenged mentally and physically in a safe, supportive environment. Likewise she continues to seek out opportunities to challenge herself through workshops, new teachers, and a committed practice.
Kristi has loved getting to know a new community of yogis in Knoxville!
