Marvin Nunez


Marvin Nunez has been practicing Bikram Yoga since the summer of 2003.  He began his practice as a way to heal old injuries but the Yoga ended up changing his life in ways he couldn't imagine.  He became a certified instructor in the spring of 2011 and has been loving and living the yogi lifestyle ever since teaching full time.

Sandy Voegeli


I took my first Bikram hot yoga class in June 2007. We all remember our first class very well. It was difficult, hot and quite crazy. I have been practicing ever since. I am a 26 and 2 hot yoga instructor trained by Evolation. This practice nurtures change, wholeness and empowerment. Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit; an ongoing magical journey.  It is my honor to share this magical journey with you. See you in the hot room!  

My academic training includes a B.S. degree in Geophysics and a M.S. degree in Civil Engineering - Water Resources Science, but I should have been a marine biologist. Another passion of mine is teaching marine conservation in The Bahamas

Will Glass


Will Glass began his journey as a yoga teacher in 2007 in Phoenix, Arizona. In just a few months he was on the schedule at the Valley's hottest Vinyasa studios such as Modern Yoga, Lifepower Yoga and Montelucia Resort. After visiting the Island of Kauai every year for half a decade, Will realized his heart belonged in a more peaceful setting.. Setting his intention on relocating his family to Hawaii, Will moved in the winter of 2017 and has since taught regularly on the beach at Kauai Shore Hotel. Will teaches a variety of levels and specializes in leading practitioners in his "Will Power" class that blends a variety of asana and calisthenics to help  students lengthen, strengthen, balance and breathe.
