How Yoga can enhance your Life!!

Why Yoga Helps

image10

Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, reduces stress, gets you in better touch with your body and brain communication.  It also creates a whole new way for you to look at breath not as an everyday thing, but a tool we have with us all the time.

A regular Yoga practice can reduce the risk of injury and condition your body to preform better at things you do everyday.  It will increase your flexibility, give you better lung function, longevity, endurance, & strength.  Not to mention a healthy yoga practice will also help you manage stress of everyday life.  

Quiet Your Mind

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.   " There is no better place to forget about the world around you, then on your mat".

Iva Dunlap

Hi, my name is Iva Dunlap.

I am a certified instructor registered with Yoga Alliance. I teach Vinyasa yoga classes (Yoga levels 1,and 2) that move you smoothly from one posture to another in connection with using your breath.  I also teach Restorative and 

Stretch and Move.

I started to practice yoga myself because I was preparing for meditation, my life was in a unbalanced place and I needed something positive to focus on. I loved yoga immediately! It moved me to a healthier, calmer, happier me!

I have been teaching for 4 years and always from a place where my heart feels good.

I have always looked at teaching as a way to help others get to that happier/ balanced place in their own lives.


Stacey Faulkner

200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher and Health Coach

After practicing for many years, I received my training through Yogaworks in 2012 and Yin certification in 2016. I have been teaching vinyasa style of yoga for the past 6 years and each year continue my education through workshops, online programs, and classes. 

I also received my Health Coaching certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2016. I am autoimmune and have found ways to heal my body through nutrition, lifestyle changes and yoga.  I work with clients with similar issues to help them find the path that best suits their health issues and life style. 

Yoga, nutrition, and meditation play an important role in my life to keep me healthy and thriving. It is all part of my selfcare and I believe in sharing that care with others to help them on their journey. 

Amy Meloan Swift

Hello Yogis!

I received my first teachers certificate in Boulder Co. with Core Power in 2013. Then another certification at  Glow Yoga in 2017.   

Yoga is like nothing I have ever experienced, my mind feels free of thought and totally focused on the present.  It allows me to let go of my ego and be happy just where I'm at.  

 I have played almost every sport and am very competative but yoga is different.

Yoga is NOT competition it is about finding your mental focus and body.

As a teacher my hope is to make you sweat as well as give you some inspiration while finding peace on your mat.  My classes will give you balance on and off the mat and teach you that breath is always a tool you have in any situation.  be prepped to work hard and have fun while you do it!

Debi Henry Danielson

Debi began her yoga journey in as a teenager when she and her mom practiced along with PBS’s Lilia’s, Yoga and You. Later as an adult, when life threw a few curveballs, she turned to the healing and strengthening powers of yoga while practicing with local yogini Marcy Snodgrass. Inspired by the local yoga community Debi began teaching in 2013, attending 200hr RYT training in Jackson, TN. She attended advanced workshops with Kathryn Budig, and a Yin Yoga intensive with Michael Johnson.

 Debi’s teaching style is nurturing, supportive and consistent with an enthusiasm for alignment and mindfulness.  You will leave her class feeling like sunshine on a rainy day, awakened and restored.

 “Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu. May all beings everywhere be happy

and free and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life

contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”



Class Descriptions

Yoga 1

This class is open to all levels and will help students develop strength,

balance, and flexibility while giving them tools to help manage their

stress. Yoga 1 is a practice which links breath to movement.

  Yoga 1 generates heat with your breath and can add a cardio component, but students are instructed to move at their own pace with modifications when appropriate.

Yoga 1 & 2

Vinyasa or Flow style class where breath is linked to movement.  

*Some experience suggested.  

This class will totally amp up your practice, and your cardio!  Get your body sweating and your muscles loose.  More inversions and arm balances will be practiced as well as challenging yourself with keeping your breath in control in every pose.   

Yoga Sculpt

This incorporates hand weights (weights optional) and high-intensity cardio bursts for a maximum calorie burning effect.  You'll recognize all of the postures from our Yoga 1 & 2 classes.  Sculpt also incorporates exercises to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing.  This is a great way to burn calories and see your body tone up fast!  

I would CHALLENGE any CROSSFITTER or CARDIO FINATIC to join us.  If you don't feel the burn, your class is free!!


Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga targets the deeper connective tissue with the aim of increasing circulation and improving overall flexability.  Poses are held 3-5 minutes with very little muscular engagement, supported by the guidance of your instructor.  Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to stronger more dynamic vinyasa style, and exercise such as running, crossfit, walking, biking etc. This class is for ALL LEVEL. 

Weekend Wellness

We will begin class with a nice gentle flow.  And we will use tennis balls to work out tension in the muscles, and end with a pranayama (breathing exercise).  The perfect class to kick off your weekend.  ALL LEVELS 

STRONG

Strong is a high intensity cardio class that will get your heart rate up and keep it there.  This class is based on interval training so you will have active recovery time but you will always be moving.  We do have modifications if cardio is new to your workout regimen, but you will still work hard and have a blast doing it!!  Please note this class has a limit of 8/class.  so, please if you are interested and are not a member of b u yoga studio jump online app.punchpass.com and create a account, make a reservation and pre-pay.  That way your spot will be held.
