Flow and Release


This class is taught by:

Lauren Schulz

Lauren has been a student of yoga since 1997 and completed her 200-hour training at Blue Heron in 2012. She draws from a variety of styles in her teaching and believes yoga helps us to be more ourselves. Her classes emphasize breath, grace, and that delightful intersection of steadiness and ease. Lauren lives with her family in Silver Spring and teaches Hatha, Tweens and Kundalini yoga.

Sara Crosby

Trained as a dancer her whole life, Sara first saw Vinyasa yoga as a natural supplement to her dancing. Though after discovering Prana Flow in 2006, her commitment to yoga jumped to a whole new level. The guided free form movement and creative, flowing sequencing really resonated; it was like dancing on her mat.
Sara is currently studying to complete her 500 hour RYT in Prana Flow. Yoga has also ignited a deep passion for service work, with a focus on sustainable community development, taking Sara both across continents and into her own backyard. Currently she lending her efforts to help develop The Growing Hope Initiative, a new non-profit dedicated to using organic agriculture, yoga and the arts to transform communities in Southern Florida and the Keys.
She also recently completed the Off the Mat and Into the World Leadership Training Program and hopes to continue to use yoga as a means to unite, heal and empower.
When not on the mat, Sara works as a documentary film producer and new mom to a beautiful baby girl.

Amy Rinaldi

Amy‘s yoga journey began in 2006, participating in Anusara Immersion in 2008. After living and working abroad in Libya and England, and becoming a mother, Amy returned to the area and completed Yoga Teacher Training at Blue Heron, receiving an RYT-200 certification. Her yogic vision is to embrace and inspire personal truth and integrity on and off the mat. Amy uses relevant themes, empowering verbal cues, and thoughtful eclectic sequencing with insights gained from the natural world, spiritual curiosities, classroom teaching, experience as an art therapist, and life in general. Amy lives in Silver Spring with her husband, two young boys, rescue dog and two cats.

Anna Wolf

Anna’s journey with yoga began in South India, where she explored the ancient traditions of Ayurveda and Vipassana meditation. Saluting the sun in the land where yoga was born revealed to her not only spiritual dimensions, but also the medicinal value of yoga for healing. After obtaining her RYT 200 certification through Blue Heron Wellness and becoming a licensed social worker, Anna has used trauma-sensitive yoga as a compliment to clinical therapies. Her eclectic blend of Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin modalities enable students to cultivate awareness of self in relation to somatic experience, facilitating deep release and energy transformation via focused breath and movement. Anna believes the body speaks through sensation, and yoga is a gift that helps us listen to this voice and tend to its messages.
Designed to both invigorate and unwind, this yoga practice will begin with a dynamic, flowing vinyasa sequence and end with a restorative sequence of poses which will send you into the rest of your day feeling relaxed and renewed.
