Nancy Hatton

Nancy began practicing yoga in 2008. In 2013, she became an empty nester and dove deeper into her practice. She found Hot Spot Power Yoga in Jacksonville, Florida and fell in love with the community. One thing led to another, a meditation workshop, 40 Days to a Personal Revolution and she couldn’t stop there. In the fall of 2017, she completed her 200RYT.

Since the fall of 2017, Nancy has continued to grow and expand her Yoga career, with certifications in Yin Yoga, Yoga plus HIIT, 20 hours of Trauma Informed Yoga, The Art of Assisting and her 300RYT. 

Nancy and her husband co-own a little private Montessori school in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Nancy offers Yoga to her staff members and students. She teaches Yoga for Hot Spot and facilitates Yoga related workshops. Nancy feels that the tools she’s learned through Yoga and her love of the craft is the perfect marriage for her little Montessori Tides School.

Nancy is excited to bring her passion and knowledge of Yoga to retreats around the world. Her sense of adventure and love of Yoga inspire the creativity that it takes to offer one spectacular Yoga Retreat.

Kirsten Benkert

Kirsten discovered yoga in 2004 when a friend invited her to a Bikram yoga class. Being a former dancer, she fell in love with the mind-body connection as well as the flexibility and strength that yoga required.

Yoga became a staple in her life. In 2016, after her step-dad passed away, she turned to yoga to get her through this dark time in her life. She completed her RYT-200 teacher training through Hot Spot Power Yoga. She continued her yoga journey with getting several yoga certifications: Yoga + Hiit Level 1 and Level 2, Yin Yoga, Trauma- Informed Yoga, Baptiste Level 1, and her 300 RYT in 2023.

For Kirsten, yoga is for everybody and EVERY body. She wants to share the possibility that yoga has brought to her life with others.

Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only).
