Loving Light Yoga

Kris Hleuka is a Certified Amrit Yoga Instructor.  She has been helping Lata and Robert as a model to demonstrate the yoga poses with the beach yoga classes since 2013, after moving to Englewood from California in 2011.  In her desire to bring joy and yoga to the Englewood community, she has participated in all the flash mobs, Earth Day events, and promotional celebrations that Loving Light Yoga has sponsored. She is currently teaching a senior Chair Yoga student and subs for Lata & Robert at the beach when needed and now teaching Sunset Yoga for Lata & Robert on Wednesday.
In 2015 Kris completed her 200-hour yoga immersion and teacher training.  She feels extremely fortunate to have been taught by Amrit Desai and his daughter Kamini in Salt Springs, Florida, at the AmritYoga Institute ashram.  She also is immensely grateful to Lata for guiding her in this new journey as a yoga teacher.  Her style is a combination of Lata, Robert, Amrit and herself!  She is interested in and practices healthy and natural eating and living, exploring alternative healing concepts, including apitherapy, and merging the spiritual with her yoga practice.
Her personal story is that she was born and raised in Sacramento, California, where she had a 33-year career as a court reporter.  With her husband and twin daughters, she decided to move away from the stressful environment she was working and living in and move to Englewood to enjoy a more peaceful, relaxed lifestyle.  Having exercised all her adult life -- jogging, aerobics, pilates, weight training, Tae Bo, along with some gym yoga -- she discovered before moving that beach yoga was offered within walking distance of where she would be living.  After experiencing Loving Light Yoga beach yoga, she knew she had found her passion and her home!

Lata is a Certified Yoga Instructor and Yoga Therapist with many years of experience and an always evolving foundation of training. She first studied Hatha (Sampoorna) Yoga with Sri Yogi Hari of the Sivananda Lineage and since then has studied various styles of Yoga including Kripalu, Intregrated Yoga Therapy, Amrit Yoga Therapy, Yoga Fit , Get Fit where you sit Chair Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra; drawing on the teachings of the multitude of yoga masters to create her own unique blend.

As a compliment to this, Lata has received training as an Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga from Joseph Le Page at the Kripalu Center and most received her Certification as a Yoga Therapist with Kamini Desai at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Salt Springs Florida in 2013 which has added a more therapeutic and restorative approach to many of her classes and allowing her to offer restorative/therapeutic group classes and private sessions. She has also furthered her studies in Yoga Nidra and Yoga for the 5 Elements & Chakras. Lata believes yoga is incredibly beneficial for anyone at any age and it is her mission to help people achieve balance and harmony both inside and out!  Lata has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and teaches from the beginner to the advance.

"I Believe yoga should meet the person where they are in that moment" allowing their body to conform to the pose. Lata also has training in the Feldenkrais Method, Gyrokinesis, Tai Chi, Chi Gung and Core Star Energy Balancing, Reiki 1,2 & 3, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Healthy Living Coaching and is also a Florida License Cosmetologist.

Lata's experience in teaching yoga to children and the elderly has taught her that yoga can be fun, creative and productive at any age.

Lata loves to share the gift of Yoga on Englewood Beach where she meets first time beginners to experience yogis in a variety of ages and physical ability. In 2012 Lata  brought together a group of her yoga students for YOGA FLASH MOBS, they have been seen at the Englewood Farmers Market . Lata believes in the community and loves to help other business grow. There is a sense of love, friendship and community at the Loving Light Studio, Englewood Beach, Yoga Flash Mobs , SUP Yoga (Paddleboard Yoga) and  Englewood Drum Circle which Lata founded in 2012.

Lata has a wealth of knowledge dedicated to Holistic Healing.  After a car accident left her with many serious injuries, she studied various healing modalities and went on to earn certification not only for teaching yoga, but in Reflexology, and Raindrop Technique.  Lata's personal experience with digestive disorder, depression, etc. led her to her studies in Holistic Nutrition at the Natural Healing Institute of California and a 3-year intensive study under Master Teacher Anthony William, learning how to use Natural Hygiene, whole foods,  fasting, and detoxification to heal the body from within, allowing the body to return to its' natural state of radiant health.  Lata's finely tuned intuition and sense of energy allows her to read the energy of the class or an individual that allows her to offer just what is needed at that time

Lata personally invites you on this beautiful journey towards health, happiness, and inner peace.  Lovingly and patiently guiding you as your mentor and your friend.

My name is Molly McBroom. I started yoga with Dennis Domres on Boca Grande many years ago.From him I learned of Kripalu, which is a very special place in the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts. While I was living in Key West with my son Caleb (who is now 10 years old),  I decided to travel to the mountains and study at Kripalu Yoga Center.  After 30 days of wonderful and intense training, I was now a Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor. My experience there changed my life and has been with me ever since, on and off the mat.

Dennis, my first mentor and Lata, my second and present mentor have both been such great blessings to
me. I continue learning how to better love myself and other people. It has improved every relationship I have and every experience. 
Yoga is my rock and helps me every single day of my life. My hope is to pass yoga on to many people including the newest addition to the family, our sweet daughter Coral. I have a wonderful man that I share my life with named Kyle and our blended family with two stepchildren. 

Yoga has been key in healing and opening my heart to give and receive love. It has also alleviated my aches and pains as long as I practice on a regular basis. I used to go to the chiropractor twice a week, now none.  I want to help bring this to as many people as possible.

I remain in awe and gratitude and invite you to set the same intention to choose joy and happiness! Yoga “Meditation in motion” is a great path to get there.

Everyone deserves to be Healthy and Happy!
