Doreen Defazio

Doreen DeFazio, a Massachusetts native, grew up a competitive swimmer starting at the age of eight. Spending hours in the pool each week perfecting breath work, flow, and form was an integral part of her youth. Once she discovered yoga in her adult life, the familiar meditative breath became a continuous practice and passion.

Doreen’s mat has been a place she can roll out anywhere as a sanctuary; a space that she refers to as a “judgment free zone”. Since deepening her practice, yoga has become less about the need to hold the perfect pose and more for whatever is needed that day: self-reflection, the practice of kindness and self-compassion, and continued growth and self-awareness.

Doreen’s passion for yoga is contagious, and she hopes that in a culture where we are all rushing from one moment to the next, that she can assist students in connecting with what is – who they already are - and to find those moments of bliss and playfulness in the flow towards their own self-discovery and self-love.

Doreen graduated Hot Power Yoga Center's Teacher Training program.



Doreen Defazio instructs the following:
  • Hot Power Vinyasa All Levels
  • The word Vinyasa means “linking breath to movement.” Vinyasa yoga classes are creative and teachers take students on a journey where the poses are found through breath. Vinyasa yoga is sometimes referred to as flow yoga since students flow from pose to pose in this style of class. In this vigorous flow students will be led through Sun Salutations, side bends, heart openers, backbends, hip openers, inversions, arm balances, standing poses, forward folds, core, twists and a floor sequence. These classes are for all levels.


  • Hot Power Vinyasa with Candle Light
  • This class is done in candle light.  Same as the regular hot power vinyasa class, only we add candle light to help relax the muscles and calm the mind.
