Hour of Power


This class is taught by:

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."

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

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!

Nick Cerri

"The physical practice of Yoga, when utilized mindfully, becomes a powerful tool for self-transformation. The postures act as a doorway that, when coupled with breath, propel us into the boundless realm of personal inquiry and individual growth. As a teacher, it is my duty to help this become apparent to the student either through adjustments, descriptive language, or a combined effort of the two."

Nick's teaching weaves modern functional movement within the greater framework of a traditional yoga practice while maintaining a light-hearted and humorous approach. His focus on establishing healthy, practical patterns entwines with a symphony of balanced flowing postures to help the student become more aware of both the gross and subtle movements they are capable. Nick draws from his background of Ashtanga and other Vinyasa-based systems as well as a scientific knowledge of the body's anatomy and movement. Nick's practice, teaching style, and personal study are constantly evolving so expect something a little different every time.

Dan Musgrave

Dan has spent over 10 years in the Martial Arts and 10 years in Yoga, and even holds a black belt in Is Shin Ru Karate! Dan’s path to teaching yoga began at Cleveland Yoga as a teacher’s assistant. He soon after became certified to teach yoga under the direction of Marni Task.
 
Dan’s teaching style includes aerobic Vinyasa Yoga. His classes focus on breathing, meditating, and working the body to its fullest potential. Dan is a Certified Respiratory Therapist who combines this training with traditional yogic science and philosophy.

Molly Dindia

Molly has been a fitness professional & Yoga practitioner for six years. She graduated from Cleveland Yoga Teacher Training in early 2008. Cleveland Yoga's program is inspired by Baron Baptiste Power Yoga. Molly is a 200-hour level Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance. In 2002, before discovering the abundant joys and benefits of Yoga, Molly became an ACSM certified Group Fitness Instructor, making the rounds of Northeast Ohio as an aerobics and group strength training instructor.
 
“I hope to convey the exceptional mind-body experience that is Yoga through my passionate teaching style. Health, healing, and self love are the major messages and tools I want to help students discover. In my classes, you will stretch, sweat and de-stress with fun yoga poses and good tunes.”

Sarah Kinches

Sarah fell in love with Yoga in 2013, but it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. After a disastrous first class, she swore she would never go back. “I was terrible. Clumsy, inflexible, and certainly not calm. I was so uncomfortable in my own skin, I thought, this was just not for me.” After a few more failed attempts, she finally found what she was looking for during a class at Harmony Studios. Since that moment, she has dedicated herself fully to the practice. In 2015 she decided to take that dedication a step further and enrolled and graduated from Cleveland Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training program. As a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance, Sarah loves attending workshops and intensives that increase her knowledge and better both her teachings and her practice.
 
Sarah’s teaching style is heavily influenced by her Ashtanga Yoga practice and her classes are often centralized around focusing on breath with movement. You may find yourself holding poses longer than you are used to so that you can delve into what Sarah refers to as a “moving meditation.” Coming into the asana, finding your alignment, and then finding your breath. Syncing the two together has been key in advancing her practice and also in helping her find a sense of calm on and off her mat.

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.

Kanela Booker

Kanela's journey in yoga began after the break-up of a long-term relationship in 2008. "It is funny how relationship break-ups initially seem to be tragic events, but can be used to bring about change and redemption as a person seeks emotional healing!" With a strong desire to find independent happiness and grow closer to God, she was introduced to yoga. After 2 years of consistent yoga practice, Kanela completed 200 hour yoga teacher training at Pink Lotus yoga studio in July of 2015.
 
The message that she speaks through yoga stems from my her experience and focuses on personal empowerment, self-worth, surrendering to God and living in strong faith and will. She is also quite passionate about demystifying yoga and increasing its accessibility to urban and underserved populations.
This is a 60-minute Power Vinyasa class. Be prepared to break a sweat as the studio is set to 90 degrees. The deeper your connection of movement and breath becomes, the more the heat begins to build inside you as opposed to around you; leaving you fully charged and present in each pose. Practicing in a heated environment increases your flexibility as it opens and loosens your muscles. Bring a towel and water bottle in with you, both of which we have available for sale at the studio
*The heat is not for everyone and can be overwhelming at times/upon your first visit. Listen to your body! Exit the class at any time if need be and a desk yogi will be there if you need anything.
 
Suitable for intermediate yogis; some prior yoga experience recommended. / Balancing classes: Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Deep Stretch Vinyasa
