Teachers of the Month for July 2012
Thursday 6:00-7:15Nova’s love for yoga began the day she was born when, she is told, she did her first Urdhva Danurasana (full wheel ) Since that time, her love has expanded from the sheer joy of the body’s ability to express bliss into the more subtle layers of consciousness. Recognized for her authentic and warm nature that invites students to experience the fullness of their hearts, Nova (E-RYT 500) has been studying and teaching yoga since 1999. Nova was Certified in Anusara Yoga in 2006 – 2012 and that same year, she met her teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker and has since become a dedicated student of ParaYoga. Her deep understanding of the Principles of Alignment combined with the beauty of expression she offers of Tantric philosophy and Practices makes each class a rich and joyful practice. Nova continues to teach locally as well as, nationally and internationally. Nova’s yoga and respect for yoga extends beyond the classroom and into the lives of others. She is a mentor and guide for many and has taught Yoga as Therapy for both physical and emotional/mental imbalances. She has taught at hospitals for Cancer Patients and Survivors, Cardiac Patients, MS and Youth Recovery programs.
Friday 10:00-11:15amChristine’s relationship with yoga is about story….through words, embodiment and heart. Our physical bodies can talk in aches and pains about where we’ve been, and our mental selves are chatterboxes about where we want to go. The heart can hardly get a word in edgewise. Through yoga, this great practice of union, we can get them all moving the same way…telling the same story, expressing our truest selves in the present moment. Christine feels spoiled by the amazing teachers in Denver, CO sharing their Anusara experience, and continues to study the principles of aligment amongst other lineages. She welcomes beginners and those who say, “I can’t do yoga, because I’m not flexible.” Her mantra is function over form, but fun comes first. Christine is crazy about her pooch, Crosby. She’s also madly in love with writing, dance, food, music, and nature.
Expect movement, music, and creating your own relationship with the best story ever told….yours.
$8 classes with Nova and Christine for the entire month of August!!!
