Vinyasa: Moderate


This class is taught by:

Joan Corey

"The essence of yoga is moving away from outside distraction, toward an inner awareness of our complete being, peeling away the layers of conditioned thinking and behaviors; living in the present moment" 
 
Joan received her certificate in Integrative Yoga with Ellen Schaeffer in 2007. She was recently invited to be on the teaching staff for the 2014 Integrative Yoga Teacher Training and is very excited to share her knowledge of Yoga to future teachers. Prior to teaching yoga Joan was a fitness instructor for over 20 years, with a BS in physical education from URI. She has taught physical education at Saint Augustine School for 13 years.

The opportunity to teach at Breathing Time Yoga feels like “coming home” as Joan grew up less than 1 mile from the studio. She currently resides in the beautiful town of Foster.

Liz Butler

Liz believes that yoga can positively affect the wellbeing of any person open to the experience, and as a teacher is committed to meeting her students where they are.
 
She strives to provide a non-competitive space for students of all levels to discover, explore, and grow their yoga practice. Her sequences are designed to spark courage, curiosity and kindness, while honoring the sense of vast interconnection and peace that yoga opens up within us.
 
Liz has been a dedicated yoga practitioner since 2003. She received her 200 hour certification in vinyasa yoga in 2009 with Tom Gillette and trained in prenatal yoga with Jacci Reynolds in 2010. She is currently pursuing her 500 hour certification with Theresa Murphy.

Liz Maynard

"I am passionate about yoga as a practice that is intensely personal to each individual. It helps us know our limits--and possibly shift them--while staying in integrity with our bodies, and without subjecting ourselves to pain. Above all, yoga teaches us how to be present for ourselves, and to develop internal stability in an ever changing world."

 

Liz started practicing yoga over ten years ago, because it seemed like the "right" thing to do. She struggled in her classes for years, feeling like she didn't belong and didn't have the right kind of body for yoga. After connecting with Forrest Yoga, she learned how to listen to her body and discover and develop its capabilities.

 

Liz came to teaching yoga after finishing her PhD in art history. She developed sciatica during the last few stages of writing her dissertation and decided to complete a yoga teacher training to heal her body from the long and painful hours of sitting at a desk and the emotional wounds of graduate school. She found an unexpected passion in teaching yoga and has devoted herself to sharing the practice that has done so much for her physical and mental health.

 

Ariadne Greenberg

Yoga is body surfing on the wave of breath through the 4 dimensional waves that flow through that which is.

April Smith

April whole-heartedly embraces yoga as a transformative path to awaken to our best selves and live fully with joy, intention and compassion.

Her yoga journey and deep appreciation for the practice began in 1992 as a student at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, CA, where she was inspired by the studio’s innovative and now celebrated teachers, including Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffmann, Bryan Kest and Seane Corn. April’s yoga journey connected her in 1997 with master teacher Sara Powers and the integration of Vinyasa flow with slower, deeper styles of yoga and meditation.

April has taught Vinyasa and Yin yoga in New England since 1998. She completed her yoga teacher training with Sarah Powers in 2012 and completed her 200 hour Vinyasa YTT certification at Eyes of the World Yoga in Providence in 2015.

April’s precise but playful teaching style blends Vinyasa sequences, long-held “yin” postures, core strengthening, and meditation to create a dynamic and balanced yoga practice. Mindfulness techniques weave through practice to deepen relaxation and spark self-inquiry on and off the mat.

Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale.
