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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
This 75-minute class will teach you the fundamental poses and breathing techniques used in Power Yoga classes, preparing you to take any either our Power Vinyasa or Hour of Power classes! This beginner friendly yet challenging flow is taught in a room heated to 90 degrees and designed to help you increase strength and body awareness. We will explore a wide variety of standing and seated asanas, as well as mediation and breath work. If you are new to the practice, looking to fine-tune some of your postures, and/or wanting a slower paced flow, this is a great class for you! 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 all levels, some yoga experience recommended but not mandatory. / Balancing Classes: Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Deep Stretch Vinyasa
