Yoga Nidra/Relaxation

Barb Totzke

My mission is simply to be a guide to help you open a door to your own joy, awareness and expansion. And my teaching style is an exploratory and complementary mix of yin & yang - reinforcing a balance of strength & softness, of power & surrender, of challenge & acceptance. Always acknowledging that the physical practice is only one small part of the wisdom that is yoga. The mat is a beautiful microcosmic school of life and everybody's experience is going to be different. It's a blessing to be part of the journey.

Ali Nohinek

My life up to this point has had many phases, highs and lows.  My adolescent years included being heavily medicated and spending countless hours with therapists giving me various diagnoses. I was told and expected to just behave, but in reality I was unsatisfied.

I came to yoga and finally found a way to manage my emotions on my own but it wasn’t until yoga helped me get through the grief of loosing my former spouse that the practice began to take on a deeper meaning. Initially yoga was only a physical practice.

Raised by outdoors and my bicycle, I gained a deep fascination for nature, but my practical upbringing suggested a life in business, so I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UTD with a focus on Environmental Science and Business Management.  I started my professional career as a medical assistant / office nurse, ran business operations for a large hospice in Missouri, and came back to Dallas for a career in finance & sales operations in the software industry during the booming late '90s.
