Power Yoga Basics


This class is taught by:

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.

Juline McDaniel

Juline (CYT-200) discovered yoga through the encouragement of friends and was immediately addicted by the benefits and challenges of her practice. Deeply grateful for the wisdom her inspirational teachers have imparted, she seeks to help others thrive by nurturing body and mind with yoga.

Juline provides a genuine, non-judgmental environment while teaching various yoga styles. Her classes are strong, lighthearted and compassionate, believing that yoga is accessible to everyone and that regular practice can elicit profound changes in mind and body. She invites students to become aware of the power of the breath and to find their edge by being present to their thoughts and emotions.

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.

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.

Sara Wank

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.
