Madison Blackwell-Dotson - Owner + Instructor

I remember my first yoga class with my mom when I was around 10-years-old, but I did not begin to dedicate myself to a practice until I was a teenager. I initially stayed with my yoga practice as way to combat anxiety and depression as many people do, but it became so much more than that. My goal with my teaching and with this studio is to create a space that inspires and emboldens students to live their yoga off of the mat.

I began practicing yoga as a way to cope with anxiety. I quickly realized my desire to share yoga through teaching so I quit my corporate job and never looked back. Iā€™m inspired to guide students as they achieve strength through yoga - physical, mental, and emotional. Yoga is so much more than something we do, yoga is something we live.

I've been a passionate learner all my life but for a long while only a casual yoga student. When I relocated back to Nashville in 2015 I discovered HOT yoga and absolutely fell in love with the benefits physical, spiritual, and mental that the practice and community provides. Realizing I wanted to share some of my passion for yoga with others I quickly enrolled in a Yoga Alliance 200hr certification and immediately after graduating dove head first into teaching. I've now had the honor, privilege, and pleasure of teaching all kinds of students and built amazing friendships. When I'm not teaching yoga I'm working my day job in marketing and finding ways to bring some yoga into my corporate role. I've led corporate courses on Mindfulness and Discovering Your Purpose and I'm always ready to hear about one's own journey. As far as my classes go, expect to connect, sweat, be challenged, but always supported in my classes. I look forward to seeing you on your mat!
