The Ashtanga Foundation Series has ended and we have started another Sunday afternoon class from 4 - 5:30pm. It is an intermediate primary series class taught by John Merideth.
As many of you know Leigh is getting closer and closer to the birth of baby Mallis. She is due April 07, 2007. She is doing very well and continues to teach great classes at the studio! However, she will be on maternity leave in the not too distant future...so you should definitely stop in and see her for a class soon. Also, Leigh recently returned from a pregnancy yoga training in LA and is now ready to offer pre and post natal pregnancy yoga privates...so hurry up and get pregnant!
Finally, day light savings will happen earlier this year (the second sunday in March). So remember to set your clocks an hour ahead and stay on the look out for a great Spring class line up from onlYoga beginning in April.
Schedule Update (effective 10/25/06)
Monday 6:15 - 7:45pm - Primary Series Level 1 - Instructor: John Merideth
Description: The Primary Series is the foundation of Ashtanga Yoga. This intermediate level class will cover the entire primary series and is designed for students with a desire to explore some of the more challenging standing and seated postures as well as backbends, headstands, etc. Students should be familiar with the Ashtanga sun salutations and standing postures. By practicing the Ashtanga Yoga primary series in the traditional way, using the rhythm of the breath and the continuous flowing movements of vinyasa between poses, we integrate the body, mind and spirit into a full and complete experience. (intermediate) Prerequisite: 5-10 or more intro level classes.
Wednesday 6:15 - 7:45pm - Vinyasa Flow- Instructor: John Merideth
onlYoga is excited to offer a new yoga class for children. onlYogaKids is an age appropriate yoga class recommended for children between the ages of 4-8. In onlYogaKids classes, children have an opportunity to explore the world inside their skin. The resulting awareness of body and breath can enhance balance, strength, coordination, focus, flexibility and encourages stress release. The Self control experienced in class carries over into self-confidence in daily life. onlYogaKids classes introduce classical yoga postures modified as appropriate for the abilities and needs of children.
Diane Holbel’s teacher training was with Jonny Kest at his Center for Yoga near Detroit. She has been a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, a national registry of teachers who have met specific training standards, since 2003. Approaching Teacher Training, she was concerned that being a retiree might affect her effectiveness. She was counseled “many people are comforted and inspired by an older teacher,” which she was pleased to find was true.
Diane brings several yoga styles to her teaching. A class may focus on relaxation, range of motion, or building strength and stamina, but its goal is always self awareness and self acceptance.
She was introduced to yoga asanas through Lilias Folen’s 1960’s TV classes. Intervening years included many types of body work including teaching Belly Dancing. After being introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in 1999, it has been her favorite personal practice because “it works”. Diane retired after 25 years as commercial real estate broker and property manager for international investors. She moved from Michigan to Atlanta to join her sons and other family members. The entire family values yoga and its full range of mind-body-spirit benefits.
