Brittany Hahn

Brittany Hahn grew up in the Lehigh Valley and was introduced to the Hot Yoga Hut after moving back to the area from Philadelphia in 2016. She incorporates yoga, barre, cycling and boot camp-style workouts into her weekly routine. Brittany has been a fitness instructor and dedicated yogi since 2014. “Yoga has helped me take my strength training and cardio workouts to the next level by allowing my body to recover faster from muscle soreness – Especially yoga in the hot room.”  After practicing Hot 40 RP, Power Yoga and All Levels Yoga for a while, Brittany decided to try Giovanni Grella’s Hot Abs class – A 45 minute abdominal and full body workout in the hot room. Needless to say, she loved the intensity of it and took over her own Hot Abs class at the hut. Brittany will encourage you to not take yourself too seriously, while simultaneously pushing you to your physical limit. “My goal is that you’ll leave class feeling physically maxed out, but mentally refreshed.” She strongly encourages students to listen their bodies, and to recognize the difference between negative pain and muscle discomfort.

 Aimee Johnson
Aimee Johnson grew up in the Lehigh Valley and fell in love with Hot 40 RP and Tim’s All Level classes at the start of her fitness journey. After a few years of letting her health come last as a priority, she snapped back into exercising and adapted her lifestyle in 2016. Plenty of research and experimenting later, Aimee learned that maintaining a healthy physique and positive mindset comes from adapting to an entirely different lifestyle; not a fad diet and unnatural supplements. That is now her biggest goal; teaching others that consistent exercise and healthy, real food is the way to living your best life. Recently, Aimee became certified in a group fitness training class and has always carried her yoga skills learned at the hut through every sort of training she’s practiced- heavy weight lifting, HIIT-style cardio, plyometrics and agility work. Aimee’s biggest goal in her Hot Abs class is to push you beyond where you think your body can go and be proud of yourself when you walk out that door! Come sweat it out with her!

Kimberly Miller

Kim started practicing yoga relatively recently, but has found the practice to have a profound impact on many aspects of her life. Hooked from her first Hot 40 RP class, she attends classes as a student 4-5 times per week. She enjoys practicing Hot 40 and Hot 41 and mixing it up with Power Yoga classes and attending yoga workshops. She had previously suffered from multiple ailments that impact many Americans as a result of our modern-day lifestyles. Today, conditions such as hypertension, sleep apnea, daily headaches, chronic fatigue and insomnia are a thing of the past for her. She credits her transformation to clean eating and the life-altering impact that yoga can provide through its ability to increase relaxation, strength, balance and posture. She finds yoga simultaneously increases energy during the day, but provides a restful sleep at night. As a full time dermatology pharmaceutical representative by day, she shares her story with anyone who is interested in hearing it. As a trained Hot Yoga 40-RP instructor, she is anxious to see other students arrive at the same epiphany. Any spare time not spent at the Hot Yoga Hut is spent with her family, which includes her husband Scott and their two teenage sons, Scotty and Ryan and their beloved dogs, Murphy and Brewsky.

Sarah Meinhart

Sarah was introduced to hot yoga by a friend who invited her to a Hot 40 class on a whim. While she had an open mind about the class, she had no idea she would fall deeply in love with the practice. Now, she can assert with full certainty that hot yoga is her passion, and she could not be happier to have the opportunity to share it with others. Since her first step in the door, Sarah has quickly excelled in the art of yoga, going from student to instructor in only a matter of months. Her passion is highlighted by her continuous private practice as well as her frequent attendance to various workshops and group training. She is no stranger to the beauty and benefits of movement, having previously studied ballet for 8 years. This provided a solid foundation and helped her seamlessly adapt the fundamentals of yoga into her every day life. She is also familiar with the arts, as she was classically trained in singing (8 years of study) and still continues to practice the flute (nearly 9 years of study). Come to her classes, and you just might be serenaded in the last few minutes! Sarah is an instructor who will challenge you to go farther with your bodies, push you past your limitations, and will help you discover the wonder of the mind-body connection.

Shawn Kerbein

I started practicing yoga about 10 years ago while I was a member of Gold’s Gym on the advice of a friend who told me that it would be good for my back. I started going every Saturday morning, practicing with Sue (shout out to Sue, wherever she is, for being an amazing teacher). I found I liked the calm that yoga provided, and that it worked really well with weight lifting to keep the muscles long and flexible. I even managed to talk her husband, Jonathan, into practicing with me on occasion.
About 4 or 5 years ago, I heard about this new thing called Hot Yoga. As a devout enemy of winter, I took the only class in the area – and was instantly hooked. I took classes from everyone, but I really started to gravitate to Randi’s classes, eventually becoming friends with her and Nick. I have been a member of the Hot Yoga Hut family since it opened.
Someday, I hope to become certified in the Hot 40 series, and maybe even the Hot 41 (my fave). Meanwhile, I am very happy and excited to be teaching in the Tiki Room, sharing the journey with new friends and old.
