Mixed Level Yoga


This class is taught by:

Rachel Henry

Rachel’s yoga journey began in 2005. What started as a means to “work out,” very quickly evolved into a place of deep reconnection with the self. The process of integrating mind, body and breath opened a new world for Rachel. A world with more self compassion, self awareness, clarity, serenity and empowerment. Rachel graduated from Blue Heron Wellness’ RYT 200 program in 2013. Rachel’s classes are light-hearted and lively while also offering the opportunity to dig deep into the potential of your postures and personal practice; peeling away the layers to re-connect with your natural, unique gifts and let your inner light shine. You can expect attention to alignment, to help finetune your asanas, as well as a sweet flow. Rachel is continuously inspired by her three playful, young children and supportive husband. Rachel is forever grateful to her beloved teachers, with whom she credits the transformation of her practice.

Hannah's Clients Say:
 
"I enjoyed Hanna's class very much. I've not taken a meditative yoga class before. It both decreased a sense of agitation about a specific incident that occurred just prior to class, and boosted my energy level by freeing energy that had been trapped by the agitating situation." Barbara S., 10/15

"Great TGIF class with Hannah. Perfect way to end the week. Lovely studio too." Jane G

"Lovely TGIF class on Friday with Hannah. Just what I needed to end the week. Easy asananas then restore and relax." Jane G.

Francine Brungardt

Francine’s independent and intuitive yogic studies began over thirty years ago. First practicing with Lilias Folan via the rabbit-eared black and white t.v. screen on top of a dresser in her parent’s bedroom, she’s followed her heart through various paths and lessons ever since. Her roots stand firmly in the Hatha tradition and her primary influences from the alignment based branches of yoga continue to inform and inspire her.

Francine's Clients Say:

"Prenatal yoga with Francine is the highlight of my week. Classes are gentle but purposeful, and meeting other mamas is so nice." Amy W. 9/2017

"It was my first time attending a prenatal yoga class (at 20 pregnant) and I left feeling so inspired! Francine is wonderful and let's you do everything at your pace and comfort level. I came in with back pain and left feeling no pain and excited about attending the next class!" Nadia J, 7/2016

"Very relaxing and friendly environment. The receptionist was very welcoming. I did pre-natal yoga. The teacher, Francine, was really nice to put me at ease since it was my first time. She also provided good advices during the lesson to do postures at the very best and after she recommended other courses I can attend in my conditions. I think it is a very good investment for yourself and I think I will also try the many other services they offer!" Francesca B., 10/15

"Francine is such a nurturing guide for all of the mamas in her pre and post natal class. She gently encourages women to stretch and build strength for their changing bodies while honoring the new life building within. She takes the time to get to know individual students and provides emotional as well as physical support. I recommend this class to all mamas!" Annie N. 11/2015

Donna Britt

Donna Britt first took yoga 15 years ago in Mexico and fell in love with its beauty, precision and spirituality. After studying Iyengar and vinyasa flow yoga locally for several years, she learned that her favorite yoga teacher was moving out of the state. Britt was flattered--and terrified--when the teacher asked if she'd like to take over teaching her class. After training with Yogafit, Britt taught yoga for three years at White Oak Sport & Health and a number of private clients. She is a member of the International Association of Black Yoga Instructors.
