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.
Hannah Bryant instructs the following:
All Levels Yoga
All Levels Yoga invites you to work with your body and breath however it shows up on a given day. Your instructor will offer various options with most poses so you can explore and learn more on days when you feel energetic or stay with the fundamentals on days when you need the stability. All Levels classes may be suitable for beginners, but if you’re brand new, you may spend some time observing some poses or taking more rest. All Levels is a great place to learn more about the poses and practices and how to use them to help you meet your goals in body and mind.
Candlelight Slow Flow
Slow down your yoga practice by lengthening, deepening and following the breath. Learn how to incorporate mindfulness into each movement as you begin to awaken your nervous system and allow it to create peace and calmness. Students are encouraged to move with their breath to gain a deeper, more tranquil access to each pose. Great for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
This well-rounded practice is great for beginners and experienced yogis. Each class will include stretching and essential yoga poses. Classes include clear explanation of the poses and suggestions for how to modify them for your abilities and goals. Yoga 1 allows you to work at an individualized pace to become stronger and more flexible and to improve balance. Beginners will love the pace and explanation, while experienced yogis will have the opportunity to refine and deepen what they have practiced.
