Beatrice Phillips, Owner
Beatrice started practicing Hot Yoga in 2005 due to chronic lower back problems. She couldn’t even do half the postures and was in a lot of pain during practice. But she also found that she could sleep at night not being kept up by pain! She tried the yoga for 30 days to see what would happen, and never looked back.
At the time, Beatrice a certified Microsoft System Engineer (MCSE, MCT, MCSA, MCP+I), author and trainer, was traveling extensively worldwide and would seek out Hot Yoga (Bikram) studios in every city she visited from Europe to Asia, finding them to be a safe haven. Beatrice decided that one day when she’d grow up, she wanted to offer the same experience and healing yoga to others. Beatrice took the nine week rigorous Bikram Yoga Training in 2010 and was mentored in and taught Bikram Yoga in Frankfurt, Germany and Pune, India. In 2013 she studied the Bishnu Gosh Lineage Hatha Yoga under Tony Sanchez in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
She is still looking forward to the day when she will touch her forehead to her toes. Beatrice teaches Hot classes and Yin Yoga.
Donna Trantham, Senior Teacher
Donna has a long and distinguished history in physically teaching and practicing many diverse forms of exercise and yoga. In 1984 she began her teaching career with aerobics, step aerobics, and many other popular “gym” classes, including other forms of yoga. She discovered Bikram Yoga in 2000 and knew from her first class that “This is what I had been looking for in my past exercises. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, I feel like Bikram Yoga has made me a better person, all around.”
Donna attended the Spring 2001 Teacher Training, and opened the original Bikram Yoga Titusville, in 2002. As with many of us, Donna suffered a lot of pain and discomfort from these other types of exercises and an accident that took a long time to heal. “It felt worse before it got better,” she says, “but one by one, (and in their own time), I feel like I am healing every part of myself that needs it.” Donna specifically teaches hot classes only.
