Heated Vinyasa Flow

This class is taught by:

Anna Mara Paiva

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Anna has been active her whole life. Watching spectacular sunrises and sunsets made her passionate about freedom. In 2010, she found herself trying her first yoga class and knew her life was forever changed. Yoga instantly found its way into her soul. Shortly after, she decided to take her practice a step further and take yoga teaching training. Anna graduated from the Sacred Space Yoga School and wanted to share her passion with others. Anna's practice helps her feel alive and free. She loves to play in arm balances and inversions-- so expect them in her classes! The playful part of yoga is just as important as it's discipline aspect-- the balance between the two makes yoga! The awareness is the balance of the body and the mind, and her goal is to help yogis bridge the gap between the two. Prepare to sweat, work and have fun on your mat!

Amber Gregory

With ten years experience and a true love for her craft, Amber will guide students through a vinyasa flow sequence; connecting breath with movement, with an emphasis on clearing blocked energy, both emotionally and physically through asana and balancing the chakras.

Cait Simmons

When she isn't on her mat, Cait enjoys cooking healthy meals, gardening, running, riding horses, and spending time with her family.

Beverly Bielewicz

Curiosity brought me to yoga 17 years ago and it is the practice itself that keeps me coming back. If you need renewed energy, calming of a restless mind and body, or just a good sweat, yoga delivers. The beauty of yoga is finding joy in the unique unfolding of each class and within each individual. My teaching style is open-hearted, encouraging students to find their own peace, power, and presence, while exploring movement and breath. I am grateful for the moving meditation that a yoga practice offers with its integration of breath, body and spirit. I also enjoy a playful, light-hearted and not-so-serious practice, our lives are busy, yoga is a chance to let go a little. I look forward to exploring the process of yoga with you and having some fun, on and off the mat. Certifications: RYT200, Yin, SPA, Balanced Athlete. Currently enrolled in 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training at Sacred Seeds with Jacqui Bonwell.

These classes link postures to balance the body and clear the energy channels in order to fully experience the energetic effects of the practice. Inhalations are linked to moves expanding the front of the body, creating lightness. Exhalations are linked to movements that engage the abdomen and create stability. The breath used in Flow/Vinyasa, ujjayi pranayama or whisper breath, creates a vibration across the soft palate of the mouth, warming the breath as it enters the body.
