Led Ashtanga Vinyasa All Level (85°)

This class is taught by:

Tricia Fleming

~ Yoga Instructor 
Yoga was a natural progression for Tricia after a life of competitive figure skating followed by studies in Exercise Physiology in college. She has been teaching for 15 years and feels as strongly about yoga today as when she started.  While she loves the physical side of yoga her keen interest lies within the practice of mindfulness and the science behind  it.  Her classes are flow based with a heavy emphasis on the breath-movement connection and the practice of mindfulness while moving.
Tricia has studied with Dee Silvers, David Swenson, Manju Jois, David Williams, Seane Corn, Michelle Synnestvedt and John Friend (gasp).
When not slaving at the studios she can often be found stressing out her vocal cords on the sidelines of one of her 3 daughters lacrosse games.

Ari Halbert

~ Yoga Instructor 
Incorporating both traditional elements of Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, Ari’s classes promote precision and efficiency of movement, and demand a willingness to reevaluate and redefine ones own practice. Each class makes evident Ari’s passion for physical expression as a gateway to our innermost aspects.
It is his sincere hope that through the grace of the movements of the physical body, each student can imbue the same sense of grace and peace within. In the spirit of old hermetic adage: As above, so below; as without, so within.
