Michele D. Stewart

E-CYT

Michele's yoga journey:

Before I started practicing yoga my entire body hurt. I was stiff and sore from head to toe.  I knew I needed to do something but I did not have a lot of extra time, I worked a lot of hours.  

In 2012 I went to my first yin yoga class.  I was SO worried that I would not be able to do anything because my body was sore, my muscles were stiff, my joints hurt, I was physically “out of shape,” I was depressed and I was anxious. I was feeling bad about myself and I no longer wanted to feel this way. After my first yin class I felt different, in a way I had never felt before. I felt relaxed physically and mentally and I knew then that this was something that was going to help me feel better all around.  I was so stunned by how great I felt that I knew I needed to pursue “this yoga thing” further for my own physical and mental health.  

So that’s what I did and here’s where it led:  

October, 2012 began practicing yoga
May, 2014 received 200 hour yoga teacher certification (Be Yoga, Isabelle Casey and Rachel Goldberg)
May 2014 began teaching yoga (currently teaching seven yoga classes per week)
July 2015 received 100 hour yin yoga teacher training certification (Paul Grilley)
2016 Reiki Level I & II
2017 Reiki Master Level
August 2017 Yoga and Body Image Summit Course (Yoga International)
January 2018 Biodynamic Yin (15 hours) (Cat Kabira)
May 2018 received 200 hour yin yoga teacher training certification (Paul Grilley)

Taking the time to relax and unwind my physical body and my mind with yin has been tremendously beneficial to my physical, mental and energetic health.  I am here in the hopes to bring that feeling to the masses without intimidation.  

“Free your mind and the rest will follow…” (EnVogue)

Michele will be teaching our Slow, Subtle, Still on Mondays at 10 a.m.

Amanda Harmon Cropped.jpg

Amanda Harmon

200 hour

Amanda has found that yoga has brought her closer to herself. Her goal in yoga is to open the doorway to loving-kindness toward herself and others, not necessarily by nailing a pose, but with reflection on the tough questions that arise in our practice: Are we really listening? How can we embody love on the mat today? Which parts of the body need attention? This is the exploration Amanda imparts in her classes. "I hope to open the door for students to be there for themselves, whatever form that may take. For some, it might look like hitting that pose after months of practice, but for others it might mean coming out of a pose. Showing ourselves that acceptance and self-care is yoga."
