Our Teachers

Ian Johnson

Growing up, Ian played competitive baseball; however, Ian developed severe shoulder and low back pain after many years of practice. His mom suggested yoga to help relieve some of his pain and tightness. Unable to cope with the pain, Ian decided to try Bikram Yoga. During his first class, Ian could barely touch his toes and every posture felt uncomfortable; however, with continued practice, Ian's body opened up and his back pain disappeared. After practicing Bikram Yoga for seven years, Ian wanted to share the benefits of hot yoga with others. He completed the Fall 2013 Teacher Training at the Bikram Yoga College of India. Ian loves sports and has helped many athletes open their bodies, heal injuries and meditate. Constantly working to improve his own practice and teaching, Ian continues to study with renowned teachers, such as Mary Jarvis, and competes annually at the USA Yoga National Asana Championship. 

In November 2015, Ian purchased Hot Yoga Plainsboro. He bought the studio because he wants to dedicate his life to teaching hot yoga and help students heal in the most natural way possible. Ian wants to help students feel comfortable in their own bodies and accept themselves as they are right now. He finds it very rewarding to help people with various skill levels, every body type and every age group improve their practice.  

Angeles Santiago

Angeles emigrated from Mexico when she was 19. She loves to spend time with her four children and cook vegetarian meals. In 2007, Angeles was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease. She grew tired of visiting doctors and not feeling better. One day, her sister Karina told her about hot yoga and paid for her first class, so she would have to go. For the first time in her life, Angeles felt no pain. That’s when she began her journey on the path of healing and teaching. She went to the Spring 2014 Teacher Training in Los Angeles, hoping to expand this amazing yoga practice to the Latin community and teach beginner yoga classes in both English and Spanish.

Sheree DeClemente

Sheree began practicing yoga in July 2010. She enjoyed the way yoga motivated her physically, mentally and emotionally. Within a year, she completed the Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in the Spring of 2011. Since receiving her certification, Sheree has been teaching steadily throughout the United States. She has expanded her education by taking workshops with renowned teachers, such as Mary Jarvis, and learning additional healing modalities. A certified herbalist and Reiki Master, Sheree is also developing her own yoga series to offer her varied experience to all areas of the blossoming yoga community.

Leo Eisenstein

Leo started his yoga journey 16 years ago when he accompanied a friend to a Bikram yoga class. At the time, Leo was 408 lbs. Although it was difficult, Leo never felt as rejuvenated and light than after Bikram yoga. With a regular practice and improved eating habits, Leo lost more than 220 lbs. He also healed several hip and shoulder injuries. Passionate about teaching, Leo attended the Fall 2005 Teacher Training. Although Leo wanted to improve his practice, he wanted to become a teacher first - not a yoga athlete. To this day, Leo gives his students the tools and knowledge that will allow them to restore balance to their mind and body both on and off the mat. Since Leo believes yoga facilitates life,  he strives to make everyone's practice in the hot room easier, so life can become a little easier too. 

Jessica Rowe

Jess had never practiced yoga when a friend convinced her to try hot yoga. After her first class, she felt renewed and rejuvenated. From a young age, Jess struggled with scoliosis and strained her body by playing rugby throughout college. After practicing hot yoga regularly, she realized she was not just physically working out but healing her body inside out. Realizing the tremendous benefits of yoga, she wanted to share this gift of yoga. After college, she went to the Spring 2013 Teacher Training in Los Angeles. “I started out thinking yoga was a little silly and now cannot imagine what my life would be like without it! I feel so lucky to be able to share this practice and help others improve their mind and body through Hot Yoga.”

Dylan Zwick

 Dylan started doing Bikram Yoga 4 years ago to enhance his athletic performance and concentration in martial arts and college. He immediately noticed results and committed himself to a regular practice.

 

 As a teenager, Dylan was diagnosed with ADD. He did not like the way the medications made him feel and was reluctant to take medications that were classified as addictive, even if they would help his academic performance. As time went on, with a regular practice, he became healthier, stronger and more focused and he wanted to help other people feel as good as he did. In fall of 2018, Dylan decided to fulfill his dream of becoming a yoga instructor and attend Bikram Yoga College of India, where he achieved his certification to teach Bikram Yoga. Dylan also practices Jiu Jitsu, MMA and is a certified Children's Yoga Instructor.

Carrie Zwick-Johnson

Carrie began practicing Bikram Yoga in 2011 with the intention of relieving back pain, reducing stress and losing weight. She has been a nurse for many years and the profession had taken a toll on her both mentally and physically. She was anxious, in a lot of physical pain and getting fat.

Within weeks of her first class she noticed a reduction in stress and discomfort. She dedicated herself to a frequent practice and within a year she lost 25 lbs (and kept it off).  After 2 years of a regular practice she was no longer taking muscle relaxers or anxiety medications and was determined to spread the word about the therapeutic benefits of regular Hatha Yoga practice. Carrie earned a 200 RYT 26+2 certification under the instruction of Jimmy Barkan.
