Yin Yoga

Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.

Melanie was inspired to try yoga in 2006 when training for a triathlon. Her instant realization that the practice went far deeper than just a way to tone led her to explore the philosophy and history of yoga. Melanie received her 200-hour RYT certification in 2012. The studies proved to be a ‘game-changer’ in her life; the first step was to open her heart to learn what made her ‘tick’ in order to live a life full of compassion, love and acceptance. Melanie will always think of herself as a student, always grateful for the lessons yoga teaches her each time she steps on the mat.

I teach yoga because I want to make everyday a source of healing. It is my love and my passion. Mind, body and spirit come together for me in the energies of movement and the calm of breath of yoga. I began teaching yoga in 2003 after practicing for several years. In all my teaching, I focus on deep tissue release, joint mobility, and strength. Yoga can help anyone heal the aches of their body and spirit. It can also help athletes of all ages improve their performance and avoid or help heal injuries.

Suze’s “yoga journey" began in 1990 ~ inspired by the practice and philosophy of two of the original Masters ~ Pattabhi Jois and BKS Iyengar.

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.
