My yoga journey began during a very cold, snowy winter in my living room with online courses through a local studio. As an endurance athlete, I felt trapped and anxious in this frigid, urban environment. It was then, that I discovered yoga not only satisfied my body’s desire for movement, but began changing my subtle body in amazing ways. When I have left the mat, yoga had called me back. My personal practice promises to ground and guide me through all of life’s challenges. I attended teacher
training out of curiosity and the desire to further develop my personal practice, but in a challenging and humbling way, yoga has called me to teach and spread its beautiful way of healing. My classes are rooted in a strong foundation of asana, incorporating the breath and meditation techniques for full integration of the mind, body, and spirit.
Abby Myer instructs the following:
Yoga Lunch Break
Give yourself a healthy break half way through the day. Yoga lunch break is a shortened all-levels asana practice. In just45 minutes, you’ll enjoy stretching, moving, and strengthening that will power you up for the rest of the day, without making you so sweaty you can’t go back to the office. Have a little extra time? Stay fifteen more minutes for an extended meditation.
Yoga Bird Flow
This upbeat, mixed-level class incorporates both alignment of the body and vinyasa (breath by breath movement) to help you experience profound benefits in a short time. In this class, you very much design your own experience, with the instructor suggesting ways to slow down and focus on inner awareness or ways to build heat and challenge. The diversity available in this practice is part of what makes it so fun.
Learn more about yoga and about your mind-body connection in Yoga 2. This class will explore more subtle aspects of aligning the body as well as breathing and meditation techniques that help you begin to develop your own rich, full practice of yoga. Some more challenging poses may be explored, but as always, modifications are given for multiple levels of ability. The focus of the class is a deeper practice, rather than an advancement of physical ability.
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.
