This class is taught by:

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.
 
Teaching Style: My 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, both with a mindful focus on breath, I take students on a journey. Using the tools of yoga and sharing personal experiences married with skillfully selected music and postures, I offer insights and experiments that encourage students to notice unhelpful habits in an effort to find greater joy and peace on and off the mat. My intention is to challenge both your body and mind - and question your perception of reality - leaving you with a profound opportunity for transformation.

Colleen Hieber

Bio: Lead Teacher Trainer for Spectra School of Yoga - As a professional dancer, I was first drawn to Yoga as a reliable method for physical therapy that I could practice on my own. Eventually, Yoga became so much more - I was hooked to its alignment principles, philosophy, mindfulness, and meditation. I also found a community of people on a similar path to personal growth. I made teaching Yoga my path in life, after experiencing the healing power of this practice, during a particularly traumatic event. I have never looked back. It is the greatest gift to share this practice with students and new teachers.
I bring strong alignment principles into my teaching with the space for students to have their own experience. In my classes, I create a space for students to press forward and to be still. I spent 8 years diving deeply into the teachings of Anusara yoga. I did my first 200-hour teacher training with Tony Guiliano, Kenny Graham, Tara Judelle, and Mark Holzman. I have completed teacher training intensives with Christina Sell and Noah Maze. My prenatal training is with Jessica Jennings and Ma Yoga (85 hours). I completed my 500-hour advanced teacher training with Noah Maze (Yogamaze). I am skilled in pose mechanics, therapeutics, meditation, labor skills, and have trained as a birth doula with Ana Paula Markel.
I have a deep and abiding call to bring the teachings of yoga to all different types of people – from pregnant women to aging baby boomers. The lessons of yoga are universal. There is an innate intelligence and inherent power in the human body that is both accessible and transformational. I can give you the tools to dig deep and realize the power of grace. E-RYT 200, RYT 500 and RPYT

Teaching Style: I am a teacher that is very interested in optimal alignment - and teaching that alignment. I also care deeply about the inner journey of the student. I hope that students have that dual experience of focusing deeply on the physical form and constantly reflecting back on how the shapes of the body effect the state of the mind and heart.

Joey O'mara

Bio: Joey completed his training in 2010 to teach Vinyasa Yoga and Yoga Lift. When he's not teaching his high energy, pumped up classes, you can find him riding his bike across the county, dueling out in intergalactic star fights, and traveling the world searching for the best house music for his classes, while always keeping an eye out for the Temple of Doom. *mostly true
 
Teaching Style: High energy, powerful, and spiritual. Medicine for your soul

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.
