Lauren creates a nurturing learning environment that allows each student to feel welcome and safe. Coming from a background of dance, she has trained in Hatha Flow, Prenatal Yoga and Yoga Therapy.
Lauren's teaching style is gentle and encouraging. She believes students should understand not only how to arrive safely in asana (yoga poses), but also why the asana is practiced. Her classes are planned Ayurvedically (with attention to the seasons of the year) and thoughtfully, based on her students' needs.
Lauren includes pranayama (breathing) and meditation practices in her classes, believing these to have the strongest effect on mental and emotional health.
Brandie is excited to be a part of your yoga journey! As someone who has been through physical therapy, and worked (seated) in an office setting for years, she understands how it feels to be intimidated by thoughts of "I'm not flexible enough to do yoga".
Her main goal as a teacher is to create a space where her students can feel comfortable. With a background in biology and nutrition, she understands the importance of taking an individualized approach to health and wellness. Because of this, her powerful, alignment-conscious classes can easily be modified for any level. Brandie's teaching style is warm and positive, and she regularly utilizes the art of "hands-on" adjustments and essential oil application in her classes to those who wish to participate.
Brandie is certified in SUP (Stand up Paddle Board) Yoga, and Prenatal Yoga. She provides sound therapy through crystal bowl sound bath and is available for private lessons in the studio.
Liliana began practicing yoga after a long career of teaching ballet. She describes yoga as life changing. Her goal as an instructor is to transmit the real meaning of yoga (the mind, body and soul connection) to her students. Through teaching, Liliana has found that she learns as much from her students, as they do from her. Her classes are full of energy and self- awareness. Her favorite style of yoga is Vinyasa because it energizes the body and incorporates breath-work, bringing joy to the spirit. It’s Liliana’s pleasure to teach and share the great benefits of yoga with her students.
Dana fell in love with the benefits of yoga rather quickly, and immersed herself in a yoga teacher training program to deepen her practice. She was trained in the LifePower Yoga style, branded by Jonnie Kest. As Dana continued to practice, she gravitated to Ashtanga Yoga. She sees yoga as prayerful and reminds her students that their practices are embodied acts of respect towards those who are unable to move in their bodies.
Dana believes finding space in the body into which circulation, nourishment and energy prepares one to spread light and love into the lives of others and into their own physical world. Dana loves introducing others Ashtanga Yoga and sees herself more as a yoga "guide”, rather than a "teacher”. She emphasizes that it is the yoga practice that is the teacher. Consistent with the teachings of Strala Yoga, Dana reminds her students that exploring their bodies, in their physical yoga practice, takes them deeper into their emotional and spiritual selves. She believes what happens on the mat is indicative of what is being experienced off of the mat. As such, she asks her students to be mindful of what comes up for them during their physical practice.
