Power Yoga Basics


This class is taught by:

Hallie Crow

Hallie has been practicing yoga since 2012. After a serious injury, yoga helped her get back on track with her physical, mental and spiritual well-being. "After taking my first class at Harmony when I was 15 years old, I felt amazing and haven't stopped coming since!" The refreshing and genuine feeling each teacher left with her made Hallie decide to share this feeling with students of her own. She found her passion for teaching at The Ohio State University while teaching at the recreation facility. Hallie decided to continue her training and obtained her 200-hour Certification through Cleveland Yoga. She is looking forward to sharing her light, love and passion as a teacher at Harmony Studios!

Dave Wank

Dave began his yoga practice in 2006 as a way to supplement training for ultra endurance running events. He soon realized that the practice was so much more than a means to cross train. Yoga offered a complete mind/body maintenance tool that was perfect for repairing the inflexibility and muscle imbalance that ultra running had caused.
 
Dave enjoys many forms of yoga including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara, Forrest, and Jivamukti. His classes are light-hearted but challenging with an emphasis on strength and alignment. He received his 200-hour teaching certificate in 2012 through Marni Task’s Jivasara Training and holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Kent State University.

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.

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.

Kristina Sevel

Kristina discovered her love for yoga in 2008 when a friend pulled her into her first class at Harmony Studios. Her practice deepened when a stubborn injury finally began to heal and as her practice became more focused she discovered the balance that yoga was bringing to all aspects of her life. She completed the Jivasara 200-hour certification program in the spring of 2011 with Marni Task. Kristina teaches a fun, upbeat Vinyasa Flow while creating a union between breath, movement and strength. Her classes encourage playfulness, enthusiasm and developing your own unique practice at every level. Kristina learns more each day from the wonderful mentors and students surrounding her.
Welcoming students of all levels, this 75-minute all about the basics 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 set at 90 degrees. Bring a towel and water bottle in with you, both of which we have available for sale at the studio.
