Mary received her certification in the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and the It’s Yoga Rocket through Larry Schultz at It’s Yoga. She also completed the Sadhana Yoga Chi training with Doug Swenson. Her firm belief that the best way to approach any challenging posture is with a strong breath, an adventurous spirit and a playful smile stems from a dedicated practice with Amme Hill.

LINDSAY

Thursdays noon - Power

Yoga was first introduced to Lindsay as a form of cross training to strengthen, stretch and increase her balance and flexibility for sports.
It was just another form of exercise until her body and mind quickly began to change. She discovered her practice could elevate her into a blissful dance of breath and movement. Lindsay believes that when we consciously breathe we surrender to the present moment, we let go of what has been holding us back so to we shift into a space of accepting and honoring our selves. She believes that we have the power to change ourselves, our experiences and our world just by breathing more consciously. Her vinyasa yoga classes elevates you to discover your higher power through embracing the transformation experience created through synchronizing conscious movement and breath.

She believes this global shift starts with you, with your breath, on your yoga mat.

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self" - The Bhagavad Gita.  Julia stumbled upon yoga accidentally and iscovered firsthand what a wild and powerful ride that journey to the self could be. Through her practice, Julia explored uncharted territory to find growth, connection and openness in places she didn't know yoga could even affect. Julia's own physical, mental and spiritual transformation led to her passion of teaching the power of breath and movement to others. She was certified to teach Vinyasa and Yin Yoga in 2013 with LifePower Yoga in Atlanta, Georgia. As a teacher, Julia emphasizes a strong connection to the breath with a sense of adventure and challenge, on and off the mat.

SARA

Fridays 4:30pm - vinyasa

The expression and articulation of movement through your body is the key to unlocking the depths of your being. This is the philosophy that Sara lives by and teaches in her yoga classes. Sara was exposed to dance and yoga at a very young age. At 13 Sara experienced her first yoga class and discovered that when movement and breath are synced, muscles engage, and bones align, the depth of your practice is limitless and can go far beyond the physical body. Of course, at age 13, it was simpler: find the breath, connect to the body, discover the pose.

After graduating with a BFA in dance from the University of California, Santa Barbara, Sara went on to complete her first 200hr Yoga Alliance Certification with YogaWorks in 2009. Following her training she felt compelled to pack her bags and travel the world for several months. This was her chance to push her comfort level, meet her edge and crack open her soul. The colors, the vibrancy, the culture, and the history the world had to offer was one of the greatest teachings she could add to her practice.  It opened her eyes to how powerful a mindful practice can be both on and off the mat, and it became very clear that teaching yoga was her calling.

Her current teachings are most inspired and influenced by Ana Forrest, who she has studied extensively with. It is through Forrest yoga that Sara has discovered her true, authentic teacher. Sara is currently working towards becoming Forrest certified. She has over 2000+ hours of teaching experience and is currently finishing her 500hr certification. Sara has studied yoga in depth with Maritza, John Friend, Nikki Estrada, Sean Corn, Maty Ezraty, and Rod Stryker. 

"It is when we meet our edge that we discover who we really are. Yoga is medicine so allow it to work its magic."

When Molly is not teaching or practicing yoga, she is trail running or dreaming up ideas for her company Adventuring Soul Retreats. Running has informed and transformed Molly's yoga practice and has led her to work with many different types of athletes. She has found that just like yoga, running is a way to shut up, reground and reconnect to what's important. As a teacher, Molly strives to help students find this sense of quiet and become more aware and confident in their own bodies. She has completed over 500-hours of training under Stephanie Snyder and continues to study under Stephanie, as well as Annie Carpenter and Jason Crandell.

DANNI

Tuesdays 6:30pm - Power

Yoga is a metaphor for life. That said, I think yoga should be fun. I'm not saying it won't be challenging or encourage you to test and expand your limits, but yoga is about your own personal journey, and I don't know about you, but my journey is going to be freaking fun.

Yes, I am a Certified Personal Trainer, TRX Instructor, 500-hr Registered Yoga Instructor, but after all those certs, I'm also a real person, and I know that I'm teaching real people.

We all have our own stories—mine has some twists and turns through a tough childhood and late teenage years blurred by frustration, drugs, alcohol, and a near-death brush with cancer, but I credit yoga with making me healthy and opening my eyes to a world of positive opportunities that I'm now truly grateful to be able to share with others whether you meet me on the mat in San Francisco, or in another great city for an immersion or workshop.

Each class with me has a Beat, a vibration and a pulse. Music can help us deepen our experience. Find your rhythm and connect to your truth.

My students—of power, vinyasa, yin/restorative, sculpt, and hot yoga—resonate with my functional, but down-to-earth approach and my ability to combine the mentally restorative aspects of yoga with the functional physical work that it entails.

I know firsthand how strengthening the mind and body together can enhance one's efforts in other physical endeavors including rock climbing, snowboarding, cycling, surfing, skateboarding, and swimming. It also provides the balance and space to pursue my other passions for music and volunteering with at-risk high school kids.

I look forward to sharing my passion for yoga with you and helping you find its place in your story.
