Meet Anice Bishop
Anice Bishop, CYT
Anice is Program Director, Business Manager and second Director at Hot Yoga Bowling Green. She began her yoga journey 5 years ago with her husband Tony and daughters Kacie and Alyssa. Affectionately known as “Yoga Mama” or simply “Mama” by many practitioners at Hot Yoga BG, Anice brings an attitude of love and honesty into the yoga room and an element of playful but purposeful intention within her classes.
Joy, honesty and openness are her gifts to her yoga students. Anice is a tireless and deeply dedicated yoga researcher, and is continually studying the latest findings and analyzing the benefits of advancements and newest variations of the almost endless postures in the world of yoga.
After a nearly 30-year career in banking, which included everything from teller, administrative assistant, to auditing & consulting, Anice has evolved into a passionate and most importantly compassionate yoga practitioner and a teacher who really cares for her students.
She is a skilled marketer, merchandiser, financial director and a no-nonsense reality check for the many varied personalities which are a regular part of the everyday operations at Hot Yoga (including that of husband Tony, of course!) She has a loving heart which she is willing to share with anyone who needs, and a true Christian spirit of giving… from an encouraging hug after class to charitable donations for local needs in the community.
Anice began her yoga education with husband and HYBG Director Tony Bishop in 2006, and has furthered her depth of study through the YogaFit program with certification in teaching and trainings in yoga anatomy and yoga ‘strength’. She studies and practices the works of Brooke Boon, Baron Baptiste, Rodney Yee and countless others, and is constantly searching/researching newly emerging authors and trainers to keep her practice current and sharply polished. She continues to train regularly with husband Tony and is nearing her completion of the RYT requirements for Yoga Alliance registration. Anice is currently working toward the teaching of 2,000 hours of yoga! “Yoga Mama” is especially driven and excited about some of the more specialized aspects of yoga teaching: Kids’ Yoga, Senior Yoga, and Pre-natal Yoga, and studies these branches of teaching thoroughly. She absorbs every fact of research available on those subjects, and has led these wonderful groups many times as part of her practicum, and is excited to expand her knowledge and experience even deeper as HYBG looks to present even more variety of choices in our class offerings. Anice is very skilled with children, as a three-time grandmother and with years of experience teaching Bible classes and VBS groups to all ages from young kids, teens, and adults.
She has worked with husband Tony as co-creator and research & development partner in the creation of HYBG exclusive trademark classes/series “Kung-Tai-Yo-Pi™” and “New Tibetan 21™” – two very popular and progressive concepts which are only taught at Hot Yoga Bowling Green! She also has developed the hot Restorative series and Body/Sculpt Yoga. She loves the Lord, her savior Jesus Christ and reads the Word of God daily. Her favorite verse for motivated living is 1 Timothy 4:12: “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all Believers in what you teach, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
