Level 1 & 2 Yoga

This class is taught by:

Robert Ortner

Robert's approach to the art and science of yoga begins with the phrase “We are our own best teachers.” One does not just do yoga, one becomes yoga; it is a lifelong journey that anyone can make. He offers classes and programs that work with the whole person, from gentle conditioning and beginner classes to more traditional vinyasa and high-energy yoga for strength and endurance. Robert balances the need for both strength and flexibility, stress reduction (aka surviving modern life) and meditation, along with breath work and inner quiet. He draws from an interdisciplinary yoga background, and blends different styles and techniques that allow the body to open and expand throughout its entire range of motion. Providing a strong foundation in yogic essentials, as well as an encouraging and up-beat learning environment that allows each student to practice safely and at their own pace. Come have some FUN!

Kerri Gawreluk

It was an innate curiosity plus a dash of on-the-job stress that led Kerri to her first yoga class many moons ago. Once through the door, it was love at first asana. Kerri credits her yoga practice with helping her open up to gratitude a little more, beat herself up a little less, and become more authentic in her teaching, relationships, and life in general. She is a certified yoga teacher in the ISHTA tradition as well as a Reiki master, and her classes are a creative, richly layered mix of movement and meditation that nurture the body and soul on many levels. She holds a separate certification in Prenatal yoga and has a passion and affinity for sharing yoga with families and kids of all ages. With equal parts whole-heartedness, humility and humor, Kerri's intention, as a teacher and fellow student, is to do her best to make sure everyone who crosses her path feels seen and supported, exactly where they are.
