PRICING SCHEDULE

75-Min Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Level 2


This class is taught by:

Leslie Rothman

Bio: Yoga became a way of life for me when my youngest son was in pre-kindergarten and I had time to dedicate to the practice. After my first yoga class, I was hooked! I love that I was able to have an hour or two out of the day to dedicate to myself and I was able to focus on nothing but what was happening on the mat. I soon became a regular on my yoga mat, practicing any free time I had. I love how yoga challenged me, at the same leaving me with a sense of peace and contentment. My husband and I share our love of yoga and meditation with our children.
I decided to take Spectra School of Yoga's teacher training program in 2016. It was an incredible experience and I loved what I was learning. My hatha/vinyasa yoga style is strongly influenced by the great teachers I have had along the way. I feel very fortunate to have been surrounded by and continue to feel the support in my home, my neighborhood and yoga community. Yoga has enriched my life in insurmountable ways!  
 
Teaching Style: My teaching style is vinyasa flow with attention to cueing and alignment. I am encouraging to my students allowing them to feel comfortable and not intimidated, to challenge themselves.

Melissa Christensen

Bio: Lead Teacher Trainer for Spectra School of Yoga - Yoga quickly became a way of life for Melissa when she noticed that the most significant impact of her practice was happening off the mat. With a strong desire to find a deeper meaning and more balanced way of life, she delved into the authentic teachings and philosophy behind the science and practice of yoga. Now an E-RYT500 Yoga Alliance certified teacher, having graduated from Yoga Pura’s 500-hour Advanced Studies & Teacher Training program in Phoenix, AZ, she is devoted to sharing her passion for yoga and the gift this transformational practice offers to all of her students. Her teaching style is balanced between the philosophical and physical offerings of yoga. Whether it’s through flowing vinyasa movement or a slow quiet practice like yin, she takes students on a journey. Using the tools of yoga, married with skillfully selected music and postures, she offers insights and experiments that encourage students to notice unhelpful habits in an effort to find greater joy and peace on and off the mat. Her intention is to challenge both your body and mind - question your perception of reality - leaving you with a profound opportunity for transformation. Fulfilling a deepening intention to teach and share this practice, she is now co-lead teacher for Spectra School of Yoga's Teacher Training program. Melissa is forever thankful to her teachers and friends for guiding and encouraging her as she continues to deepen her own practice and teachings.

DJ Arnold

Bio: DJ was drawn to yoga as a way to deepen the connection between body and mind on and off the mat. As an attorney, DJ found the calm and mindfulness cultivated in his practice could be carried into the courtroom to defuse stressful situations. As a yogi, DJ found that his attention to detail and precision allowed the practice to become more grounded and technical. DJ completed his 200 and 300 hour
certifications with Fluid Yoga in Boston, Massachusetts and developed a personal practice and teaching method informed by many different styles of yoga. DJ co-founded and sits on the board of bodhi & mind
yoga, a Boston-based non-profit organization that provides yoga and meditation to people in cancer treatment and recovery.
When he is not teaching yoga or being a lawyer, DJ can be found walking Newport Back Bay with his dog, surfing, rock climbing, reading, or restoring old cars.
 
Teaching Style: DJ’s classes incorporate a fun, mindful flow designed to allow graceful intuitive movement while providing opportunities to develop specific techniques and movements to open the body and make the practice more accessible. Expect each class to explore breathing and meditation techniques in conjunction with the physical asana practice. DJ teaches vinyasa flow, restorative, yin, vipassana-inspired meditation and yoga nidra. DJ often uses contemporary music to help reinforce the atmosphere and pace of his classes.
 
3 Things I would put in a time capsule: A hoodie; My playlists and podcasts; The Game of Thrones book series (hopefully by then it’s complete!).
Hatha Yoga Level 2: Flow and Let Go
Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate
Temperature: 90-95 degrees F
Description: This 75 minute Level 2 yoga practice builds upon the fundamentals learned in Level 1 to add an increased challenge to a yoga class. The solid knowledge base learned from Level 1 carry over to this class and Level 2 students are encouraged to let go of newcomer energy and flow confidently in this class. Instructors sequence the asanas in more ornate and creative fashions to keep students improving and feeling challenged. Some instructors may choose to teach this class in a Vinyasa format where the poses and transitions from pose to pose are linked with a breath cue. Depending on the teacher, this class can be taught at a faster pace than the Level 1 class. Additionally, a broader range of asanas and breathing techniques are taught to increase flexibility, strength, and concentration. This class is practiced in a warm room and is appropriate for advanced beginner/intermediate students.
