Hatha

Chrissy Cortez-Mathis

In 2000, I was working at a stressful job & needed some relief for my mind & my body. Over the years, I would go to other forms of exercise but I always came back to yoga. As a gardener & backpacker, I needed the stretches, strengthening & balancing practice to keep in shape to do the stuff I really love to do.

I teach a variety of yoga classes: Gentle, slower paced classes that focus on body alignment & the breath. These classes allow time for exploring postures & fine tuning how the posture feels for your body.

Claire Cotton

Upon overcoming a close to three-year bout with chronic fatigue syndrome, an issue entirely too common in this day and age, I was inspired to become a yoga instructor to share my knowledge and love of yoga with others. I started teaching upon graduation and am highly addicted to my daily yoga practice. Also, I attend workshops regularly to keep my practice current. My passion is to help others satisfy their individual health and wellness goals while providing them with the tools to continue practicing for the rest of their lives.

Certifications: 

200 RYT + Advanced Training

Lavanga Schlette

My teachers have shown me that following the path of Bhakti Yoga is a very sweet and practical way of living. The only requirement is that we give our hearts to the Divine, and all will be given to us in return. By drawing on my 15+ years of personal practice, I hope to share the innumerable gifts I have been given. On my own, and with my partners in The Kyari Project, we teach classes on texts in the Bhakti tradition such as the Bhagavad Gita, as well as seminars on mantra meditation and how to incorporate Bhakti into your daily life.
