Yoga 101 Workshop


This class is taught by:

Hannah Bryant

I first discovered yoga in 2009 as a high school student. Throughout college I would sporadically attend yoga classes, but it wasn’t until I moved to Florida from Louisville, Kentucky that my curiosity for yoga really started to deepen. I can remember so vividly one day sitting on my mat and thinking to myself “what does all of this mean?”. I continued to be curious for a couple more years, and then, with the encouragement of a dear friend who knows Yoga Bird well, I started the yoga teacher certification here. Now that I've received my certification, I teach yoga and other fitness classes to the senior population at a retirement community where I also offer personal training. With a background in Kinesiology, I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge of the human movement system with people that I encounter in classes and in private sessions. As a yoga teacher, I always consider myself a student first and a teacher second and I know I will continue to learn and grow with the support of Yoga Bird’s wonderful community.

In 1996 I found myself on a yoga mat for the very first time. As my life’s journey unfolded over the last twenty years I’ve left my mat quite a few times. Those times off my mat left me restless and unfocused and each time coming back to the mat allowed for balance and inner peace. As a massage therapist and Reiki master my journey has been full. My life’s work incorporates both the physical and spiritual, loving all things that bring us closer to the Divine. I love that yoga allows for both of these at a much deeper, more profound and personal level. I am grateful that my move to South West Florida has brought my yoga practice to my daily life. My intention is to practice yoga with anyone who is willing to join me in this deeply healing path that brings together all the powerful elements of body, mind and spirit both on and off the mat.

I found yoga in 2010 during a difficult time in my life. I was taking one or two classes a week and I remember thinking "Hey, that took my grief away for a second" and I found I could breathe easier. Soon after I retired from the Post Office and moved to SWFL I started my daily practice and realized Yoga has healing and energetic qualities. I began to understand that the ancient philosophies aligned with my beliefs and how I lived my life. I started to see Yoga as a tool for cultivating overall health, wellbeing and self-transformation. I realized this is big stuff and needs to be shared and I completed my 200 hour teacher training at Yoga Bird. My favorite thing about yoga is that it meets you where you are on any given day or moment and carries you to where you need to be. I like to design and teach classes that are accessible, meaningful and sustainable. In class we will consciously connect breath-body-mind while we explore the development of strength, flexibility and balance. I would like to teach you to practice with insight and inner compassion so as leave your mat you do so with an energetic feeling of sense and self.
Learn the basics of how to practice yoga, so you can begin to enjoy yoga classes or a home practice. This two hour class will be a mix of learning and movement. Move at your own pace according to your intention and fitness level. Prepare to have fun and discover the amazing benefits of yoga in an easygoing, relaxed setting with other beginners.
