Gentle Yoga ~ Level 1


This class is taught by:

Naomi Halpern


Naomi Halpern, RYT 200, earned her initial certification at Shanti Yoga, Nelson, B.C. in 2009 and a follow-up 100 hour certification at Freedom Yoga, Eugene, Oregon in 2011. She is also a certified Pilates Mat instructor. Naomi's practice is informed by the study of Ashtanga and Anusara Yoga, but she is most interested in working to settle our nervous systems and to deeply align body and mind. She brings to class an interest in postural alignment, philosophical study, breath awareness, and self-study through a compassionate lens. She teaches to share the joy and restfulness yoga has brought into her own life and welcomes any student of any level.

Katelin Gallagher

I’ve been engaged with contemplative practice (yoga and meditation) for well over a decade, and have taught for the last seven years…each passing day, month, and year brings me into deeper relationship with the practice, myself, and others. Yoga teaches me to unravel the intricacies of my heart… and when I think I’ve reached some end point… it guides me to a new corner that requires some work. My hatha yoga practice teaches me to pay attention to my body… that there is much to be learned from this body, and that the body is a gateway to presence, wisdom and love. I am grateful to have studied Hatha Yoga with the most masterful Kira Ryder, Lisa Wells, Darren Rhodes, and Christina Sell, and I study meditation, yoga philosophy, and Tibetan Buddhism with my Holy Guides: Kimberley Theresa, Mira Shani, Jarret Levine, and Douglas Veenhoff. My meditation practice teaches me of the profundity of the mind, attention, dreams -- William James says it concisely, "For the moment, what we attend to is reality." I am a Master's student at Oregon State University, where I study meditation/contemplative practices, Eastern philosophy, and psychology. View Kate's Website http://wisdomlotus.org

Heather Davis

Heather first began practicing yoga in 1999, newly married and living in Denver. While many things have changed over the years, yoga has been a constant for her.
Heather leads a breath-focused class inspired by her training in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. Her quick smile and genuine presence encourages students to honor themselves exactly as they are. 
Heather teaches from the heart, in a way that is grounded, calm, authentic and empowering.
Her classes are intuitively sequenced and designed to be accessible for all.
For Heather, yoga is a way to awaken to joy and compassion. She is beyond grateful and abundantly blessed to share yoga with you!
 
Heather's continuing passion is all things pregnancy and birth; she loves helping pregnant women prepare for the births of their babies. As a birth doula, Heather believes in the transformative power of positive thinking and finds yoga to be a wonderful gift of self-care during pregnancy. She feels truly blessed to be able to teach and support women. 
 
Heather completed 200hr teacher training at Live Well Studio.

Lisa Wells

Co-owner, Lisa Wells, PhD, ERYT500, teaches yoga, pilates, core, meditation, trauma-release and 'Making Peace with Your Body' in addition to co-managing the studio . Her 25+ years of yoga practice have taught her patience, humility and happiness. Lisa has been teaching yoga since 2000. She received her PhD in Geology from Stanford University and in her current incarnation as yoga teacher has been called 'a geographer of the body.' Lisa's yoga classes are for your whole being, as she believes there is no separation between body, mind and spirit.  Her philosophy is grounded in the primacy of love.
Gentle Yoga is yoga practiced at a gentle pace. Gentle Yoga increases flexibility, strength, balance, and endurance while reducing pain, decreasing stress, and improving overall health. This class will teach poses and body awareness with adaptations, modifications and the use of props. Gentle Yoga is appropriate for those new to yoga, those wishing to practice at a slower place, and those with injuries and movement limitations. Students should be able to independently get from the standing to the floor and back. Meditation and savasana bound the practice
