Yoga Instructor: Lauren Flanagan
Ashtanga Yoga Instructor
I have been a dedicated student of Yoga for the last eight years, the last three of which I have also been teaching classes. I have studied, practiced, and trained through the lineage of Ashtanga Yoga. I learned how to instruct this practice through a year-long internship with my teacher, as well as participating in a 200 hour intensive with Tim Miller a Senior Ashtanga Teacher. Through this practice of breath and movement, I strive to reawaken my student's relationship with correct posture inside of movement. Without going beyond what each individual body is capable of we will integrate movement that opens one's body to deeper levels of strength and flexibility. I have worked with individuals at all age levels and with different amounts of strength and flexibility. My adult life has been dedicated to learning about the health of the human body and mind through yoga, as well in my education path. I am currently attending Bastyr University for a degree in Herbal Sciences where I have had the opportunity to learn about the human anatomy in depth. I am inspired by each individual I have the honor of working to restore vitality with.
Upcoming Pilates Classes:
Every Tuesday afternoon!
Pilates Instructor: Nancy Mattheiss
STOTT Certified Pilates Instructor
With an upbeat and accomplished teaching style, I deliver client appropriate Pilates training to a diverse group of people. Regardless of age, shape, or physical ability, they are united in their desire to optimize flexibility, strength, range of motion and increased vitality.
I believe there are many profound methods that contribute to healthy body mechanics. I explore and draw inspiration to improve my work through anatomy and kinesiology classes, advanced teacher trainings, and working in conjunction with physical and occupational therapists. The depth and breadth of my instruction is further enhanced by Heller work, Feldenkrais, facial release techniques, Bosu balance work, Barre classes, meditation, and yoga.
Certified in 2005 through STOTT Pilates, I have a special affinity for those motivated to recover range of motion and strength due to lasting pain, illness or surgery, having overcome chronic back pain and sciatica myself.
Personally, renewal and joy is found through many types of movement, including samba dance, tennis, cross country skiing, and hiking above the treeline. Using Pilates as the springboard, I intend to continue an active, engaged lifestyle for a very long while.
