In February 2015 I began the 200 HR Yoga Teacher Training Program at Hot House Yoga with Shelly Kwiatkouski, aka Uma, to get better at doing yoga. I had no idea the amazing impact the teacher training program and Shelly in particular would have on my life.

Shelly helped me understand there is more to me than I had ever imagined, spiritually and physically, and she opened my eyes and heart to a way of being that has brought me a deep sense of inner peace.

I recognize my time with Shelly during the yoga teacher training program as one of the most pivotal times in my life. I will be forever grateful to Shelly for igniting a fire inside me that will no longer allow me to play it small.

My goal starting the 200 HR Yoga Teacher Training Program was not to be a yoga teacher but to learn how to do more difficult poses, especially handstands, so I could begin checking off the list of poses I had mastered. But instead, I was led down the 8 Limb Path by Shelly in an extraordinary loving and inspiring manner that has transformed my entire outlook on life and what I thought was the world around me and the future ahead of me.

Shelly was able to help me find a new confidence about myself which has allowed me to believe I can achieve my heart’s desire.
I highly endorse Hot House Yoga and Shelly Kwiatkouski to anyone ready to start living their truth path.

Shelly Kwiatkouski ERYT 500 offers (teacher/teacher's) training classes, it is much more than just preparing someone to become better at yoga poses or enabling them to teach.  She digs deeply into the theory, tradition, and practice of yoga moving her students towards a more realized self.

Shelly loves to watch her students grow from the inside out. She explores each student’s mind and habits to assist them in exploring the root of their own true nature.  Shelly’s intention is to open a path that leads her students back to truth and to a place of peace in the mind. With her gift of intuition, Shelly’s teaching style is profound and transformational.  
She believes that each person is a flame burning brightly and that each individual is capable of living a life of contentment. Shelly and her teachings honor the uniqueness of each individual flame and she reminds us that there is nothing in this world more valuable than the contentment of a life well lived.
Shelly draws from a diverse background of personal, professional and educational experiences that make her teachings meaningful and relevant to our daily lives.  She has amassed over 11,000 hours of teaching in yoga, anatomy, philosophy, kinesiology, meditation and the healing arts. She owns and directs her own thriving studio, Hot House Yoga in Ormond Beach. She has an extensive background in teaching meditation and healing classes.
Shelly teaches from her heart and her greatest aspiration is to bring hearts together. Her yoga practice and teachings are fueled by a strong desire to effect a positive change in her students and the world. Her innovative and open minded attitude leads the way to this change. Her classes are constructed in creative ways that move us through the joy of self discovery. Shelly’s thoughtful and masterful activities safely carry us along the journey of healing.
