Vinyasa Yoga - All Levels (Light Heat)


This class is taught by:

Michael Jones

Michael has been practicing yoga since 2005. Incredibly talented and dedicated teachers aided Michael in his yoga journey; but he feels particularly fortunate to have received his 200-hour certification from Diana Vitantonio and Soul Activists in 2012. Michael then completed a 200-hour course with Sandy Gross, Baptiste assisting training, and other continuing education courses.
 
Sharing yoga with others is a gift for which Michael is humbled and grateful. In his class, you will be challenged and supported in both mind and body, and encouraged to inquire and explore the limits of your practice. Michael’s calming voice will guide and challenge you through thoughtful vinyasa sequences reinforced by breath & alignment cues and supportive assists.
 
Michael’s goal is to enable each student to mature his or her practice to that place where yoga transcends the studio and permeates life: a life with a calm mind, a full heart and a free spirit. He believes that the most important yoga practice is what we do with the 23 hours of the day we are not on our mats. When not practicing yoga, you can find Michael in his workshop building furniture or off riding something on two wheels.
 
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” – Ghandhi

Sara Wank

Sara’s love for dance, movement, anatomy, and kinesiology is what brought her to her first Yoga class in 2005. She has found an art form in the many styles of Yoga throughout her years of practice, especially in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Satyananda.
 
She received her 200-hour Teacher Training in 2012 through Marni Task’s Jivasara training and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lake Erie College where her studies were focused in Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pilates, Wellness, and Sports Nutrition.

Dawn Manning

Dawn became passionate in her yoga practice in 2005 while going through some major changes in her life. She began an avid practice schedule following many favorite instructors. She felt inspired over the years by Marni Task and that eventually led her to her training in 2012. She completed her 200-hour certification with Jonny Kest in Michigan.

Her passion now is leading students through a breath focused, live in the heart life power yoga or slow burn class. You can expect to have fun playing and flowing on your own at some point in her classes with the music cranked! She encourages students to follow their breath and their intuition, always listening to their bodies and following that which resonates within them. Dawn╩╝s power yoga classes will open your heart and mind with inspiration, flow and great music! She has a deep yearning for bringing all that her experience has done for her to each and every one of her students. She believes you are capable of anything... you only have to believe and let go for things to fall into place. She brings this feeling to the mat.

Dawn is also a raw food educator and certified detox specialist. She is a raw food advocate and also offers workshops on raw vegan living and detox cleanses. You can check out recipe demos on her You Tube channel at: Doin it Raw With Dawn.

Jenifer Ezell

Jenifer was given the gift of yoga in 2011. She was searching for a way to deal with chronic pain, stress and anxiety. After coming to Harmony Studios, she quickly found the solution to the battle she had been fighting tirelessly for years. As her practice evolved she knew she wanted to help others the way her teachers had for her. In May of 2016, Jenifer traveled to Costa Rica to immerse herself in learning under the tutelage of international yogi Banyan Gallagher and received her 200-hour RYT from Warrior One.
 
"I want to create a welcoming environment where people feel free to explore the beautiful journey of yoga and self discovery in a caring, judgment free space."

My classes are balanced, energizing classes, which encourage effort and awareness and are sensitive to individual students' needs. I believe my passion and enthusiasm for Yoga and for my students is what drives us to grow and get to a deeper level together.”

Reid Patterson

Reid started practicing Yoga in 2008 as a way to stay limber during the winter. He soon learned that there was so much more to Yoga than just stretching in different animal poses. As he progressed in his practice, he discovered what Yoga could do for his mind, body and soul and wanted to teach others in the hope that they might discover the same.
 
In 2012 he studied with Diana Vitantonio to obtain his 200-hour certification, but also considers Natalie Lorber and Molly Dindia two instrumental teachers for him.
 
“In the laboratory I study how materials flow. On my mat I study how the body, mind, spirit and energy flow.”

TJ Murphy

I have been teaching yoga since 2013 and the challenges I face physically, mentally, and spiritually will always keep me coming back to my mat. I practice yoga because it helps keep my mind clear and my body strong. The practice is very special to me because it provides an opportunity to self reflect and heal. Along my journey I have learned how to move my body in unison with my breath, which makes me feel very safe and close to God. The ability to empower and inspire others through teaching yoga drives me as a teacher each and every class.
Welcoming students of all levels, this 75-minute class is based on linking your breath with your movement, leaving you energized and focused throughout. Vinyasa classes are richly infused with classical yoga teachings such as sun salutations, basic inversions and back-bends along with pranayama and light meditation to tame the mind and open the heart. The room will be moderately heated between 75-78 degrees. Bring a towel and water bottle in with you, both of which we have available for sale at the studio.

Suitable for all levels: some yoga experience recommended but not mandatory. / Balancing classes: Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Deep Stretch Vinyasa
