Pantra Hoeft (founder) began her exploration into yoga in 2010 through an introduction to heated Bikram yoga (thank you early years of Groupon!). After realizing how free and happy she felt while on her mat and how amazing her body felt and how clear her mind was after an hour of yoga practice, she was hooked and has never looked back.
A few years later and countless hours of practice under her belt, Pantra was enjoying the yogi community so much that she needed more, and decided the best way for her to accomplish that was to become an Instructor. Ever since starting her yoga training more than a decade ago, Pantra has continued to pursue opportunities to improve her own personal yoga practice and is constantly learning and evolving to become a more complete teacher for her students. This ongoing process of learning is what provides her with fresh insights that inspire her teaching and challenge her practice.
Pantra's desire to constantly evolve her yoga practice and share her experiences through her teachings is something that sets her practice and her yoga classes apart from the corporate world of fitness and yoga where she began and where her practice grew stale. It is exactly that desire for growth and fluidity in her teaching that drove Pantra to push to open her own yoga studio and the driving force behind Uptown Hustle & Flow.
Her Dream (and now Our collective reality) was to be able to teach and practice yoga in an Instructor Empowered yogi-based environment where the Instructor has freedom and control over his or her teachings, beginning with the style of practice to the daily intention down to the duration and intensity of each class, sequence, movement and even breath!
Uptown Hustle & Flow is a community-based yoga studio where Yogis and Instructors are the focus. We encourage and nurture an environment concentrated on the practice of yoga and not perfection. Our studio is a safe and judgement-free space where doubts should be cast aside, differences embraced and yogis and Instructors encouraged to empower each other to be the best humans possible!!
