My goal has always been to use these tools in a fun way to empower people and to inspire people to their highest, best, most lovable selves so that when they walked out of any class, they would feel brighter. taller, more confident and uplifted. My wish is that all people I am graced with touching through my practice/classes are uplifted and emerge more trusting of themselves, more loving of themselves and more deeply connected to their own most beautiful authentic self ~ on and off their mats. Yoga should melt stress, initiate healing and inspire joy, simply with breath and movement.
I completed my 200 hour Hot Power Vinyasa Flow Training as well as Yoga Sculpt with Carolyn Long Yoga. I will always be deeply grateful for the loving wisdom Carolyn shares with me.I have also studied in at the Sattva Retreat center in Rishikesh, India with Anand Mehrotra . And over the last 6 years I have done many YogaFit trainings, my favorite being Yoga for relieving trauma/PTSD/abuse. I will finish my 100 hour certification this summer. No matter what class I am teaching I open my heart and my class to ALL ,in a non judgmental non competitive atmosphere. I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice and create a profound sense of peace.

Shannon has been teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga for over 3 years, but her journey started off completely different than where it is presently.

When she moved here in 2007, a friend convinced her to try Bikram Yoga, and for a couple of years this suited her type-A personality of go further, push harder, do more. It wasn’t until she developed an injury where she had to step back and take a look at WHY she was spending 90 minutes in a 115 degree room at 50% humidity to only usually feel depleted and unfulfilled after? After taking a well needed break, she returned to a different studio with a similar sequence, but the atmosphere was the total opposite of what she had been used to. At the end of her first class, she laid in savasana, and couldn’t help but cry because this was the feeling she was looking for all those years, just in the wrong place. It was through her connection to her breath that she discovered a completely different element to her yoga practice. Shannon truly believes that developing a harmonious connection with ones breath allows us to come into a state of being completely present, and it is in these moments where healing truly happens. She teaches her classes with a certain grace that supports the softer side we all are deeply desperate to expose. Her fascination with music and the ability it has to heal guides her to build playlists that support movement and openness as her students flow through class. Her goal as a teacher is to provide a space where students can come practice without judgment, expectation, or ego, but just from the heart, honoring whatever their souls have to offer that day.

I began my yoga journey in the summer of 2011 and like a spark to light my inner fire a steady hot vinyasa practice lit me up. I was inspired to share what I found in myself with others through yoga. My aim as a teacher is to empower the people around me and in the community to live the life they love. My classes focus on breath and awareness either flowing through or relaxing into balanced and thoughtful sequences. I teach vinyasa, the 26 Bikram Hot Yoga postures, restorative, and yin yoga styles as well as meditation and Yoga Nidra. I am also Reiki II certified, trained in EFT, and host classes/workshops on Essential Oils. I am currently continuing my education as a Holistic Health Practitioner and massage...

Deborah brings her passion for sharing just how capable we all are when awareness is brought to the breath, intention is set for class and space for each pose is held...

just long enough for each individual to feel the connection to the pose within themselves, to gather information through self exploration and build TAPAS (endurance, inner, strength). It's an amazing connection. Deborah also emphasizes throughout practice the precepts of our yoga foundation, the 8 limbs. Setting the groundwork as a "yogini" to leave a better footprint, to be a good example, to care for the planet for the next generation and find compassion for self and others. It starts in the mind, calming the raging waters to ripples to smooth as glass. Right thoughts become right words, become right actions. It is a great start! Yoga is the fountain of youth! Smiling keeps the fountain flowing...:)

Sabrina Rubin

My passion for yoga came to me when my friend referred me to a free week of hot yoga. I fell in love instantly. Yoga was something that I could do to get away from my day to day life. I've always tried to find something that i truly loved to do.. With yoga,
I feel like i can't get enough of it. There is always something new to learn from it, whether it's of the asanas and their beneifts or of the philosophy and the yoga system. I truly found something I am passionate about and I feel amazing. I am so grateful
to have found yoga and I plan to continue to study and grow from it so that I can share its beauty with those around me.
