Hatha: Beginners


This class is taught by:

Fanny Rovere

Fanny really enjoys teaching, and it shows in her classes as a quiet, focused power. She does not perform. She does not seduce students into yoga. She humbly trusts that each student may be guided into their own yoga process.

She genuinely wants students to grow into their own yoga and she guides them with both cognitive and emotional intelligence, as well as a strong intuition and understanding of the body.

Fanny has been practicing yoga for 15 years. She has a 500 hour certification in Dharma Mittra yoga from the Grace School of Yoga, an approach to yoga that is focused on yoga as a path to self-realization. She teaches classes appropriate to the level of the students including long holds with some flow and includes pranayama, mantra and meditation.

Jenny Little

Jenny Little (E-RYT 200, RYT 500, MS) believes yoga offers an opportunity to experience profound freedom and profound integration- physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and her primary intention in teaching yoga is to assist students toward self-discovery and healing. Jenny weaves her knowledge and appreciation of anatomy with various yoga asana techniques and with yogic philosophy to provide a holistic approach to yoga and to assist students in uprooting core beliefs and habits that are affecting their ability to thrive. She teaches from the heart with authenticity, humor and kindness.

Jenny began a daily practice of yoga in 2002 and began teaching in 2013. She received her 200 RYT certification in 2013 with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in Seattle, WA; earned her 300 RYT certification in 2016 with Theresa Murphy in Providence, RI and completed her PYT Certification with Prenatal Yoga Center located in New York City. Jenny has been fortunate to learn from, and continue to learn from, many experienced and practiced teachers and in particular, expresses deep gratitude to Anne Phyfe Palmer, Melina Meza, Jenny Hayo, Theresa Murphy, as well as her children Lucy and Theo.

Jenny currently teaches group classes, individuals, and specialty workshops in the New England area. See jennylittleyoga.com for more info!

Mimi Budnick

Drawing from over 15 years of work as a community organizing and an adult educator, Mimi is able to connect with her students where they are at and to create an environment that feels open and welcoming. She been practicing yoga for over a decade, and received her Vinyasa teacher certification in 2010 from Tom Gillette at Eyes of the World. Since then Mimi has taught in a variety of settings including studios, medical clinics, homeless shelters, drug rehab facilities, and schools.
 
Prompted by an urge to more explicitly help people use yoga as a tool for healing, from both physical and emotional injuries, Mimi recently received her certification in Therapeutic Yoga from Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal and has studied Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky. Additionally she has participated in workshops about yoga’s benefits for dealing with depression/anxiety and PTSD with Bo Forbes, Bessel van der Kolk, and Dana Moore.
 
Whether leading more challenging classes for experienced yogis, or teaching classes to complete beginners and populations with limited mobility and significant physical/emotional challenges, Mimi likes to remind her students that yoga is about more than the physical postures- that the asana are a vehicle to help bring about a more unified state of consciousness and that the real work of yoga takes place off the mat. Mimi’s aim is to guide people through an experience on their yoga mat that creates space in her students’ lives to connect in deeper and more meaningful ways with themselves, their community, and the world around them.
Everyone has to start yoga somewhere. Beginners yoga is designed to take the stress out of yoga by laying the foundation for a strong and confident yoga practice. Welcome to yoga! Beginners yoga is rich with instruction and demonstration, is deliberately paced and will help you learn the basics. This class welcomes all students who are relatively new to yoga practice or simply wish to focus on the basics.

Hatha Yoga is the big umbrella of yoga that covers the multiplicity of yoga styles that are practiced today. Hatha classes incorporate postures (asana) and breathing techniques (pranayama) and have a goal of bringing union to the opposite qualities of sun (Ha) and moon (tha).
