60-Minute Basic


This class is taught by:

John Rayner

John grew up in Litchfield Park, AZ and graduated from The University of Arizona with a degree in Business Economics. John began farming with his family (four generations of cotton farmers) in 1991. John took his first Bikram Yoga class in 2001 and immediately connected with the practice. "You get out of this yoga exactly what you put into it. It's up to YOU!" He became certified to teach in the Spring of 2005 and went on to compete as a representative of Arizona in the National Yoga Asana Championship in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 where he placed 5th in the nation. When John isn't stretching and sweating in the yoga room, he can be found sweating on the farm, on his mountain bike, hiking in the desert or poolside with his two daughters.

Stefi McGeorge

Stefi graduated from the University of California, Davis where she participated on the swim team and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural and Managerial Economics. She worked in the banking industry for years before her children were born. Stefi started taking Bikram Yoga when the studio opened in 2007 and hasn’t stopped. “I love how you get incredible stretching, cardiovascular workout, and strength training- the facial, massage, and detox are an extra bonus!” Stefi graduated from OHM School in 2015 and attended the Inferno Hot Pilates Teacher Training in 2016 and has been teaching all of our classes since. In addition to spending time with her husband and four teenage daughters, Stefi loves any excuse to be outside and especially enjoys water sports.

Shelby Rayner

Shelby graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Business Economics. She worked in business sales for years when she stumbled upon what would quickly become her true passion - Bikram Yoga. Shelby took her first Bikram Yoga class in 2001 and knew that she would practice this yoga for the rest of her life. After the birth of her first daughter Shelby decided it was time to leave the corporate world and pursue her dream of becoming a Bikram Yoga teacher. She completed Bikram's Teacher Training in the Spring of 2005 and opened BYA with her husband in 2007. "Best job EVER! This yoga has changed my life and now I get to watch others transform their lives." Shelby has two daughters and a big black dog. She loves cooking, music, shopping and anything having to do with design. She can be easily bribed with a good cup of coffee and anything dark chocolate.
