Level 2 (Intermediate)


This class is taught by:

Andrea Leombruni

Yoga to me is my Freedom. It is a magic carpet inward and outward. It takes me to places away from the chaos that follows us in our daily lives like the traffic and petty interactions. Ironically, as I begin to move I become still inside. My calm returns as soon as the door shuts; I feel an exhale and I am free to guide myself into my own moving meditation. My Practice has become a Journey to reflect; not perfection, but a vision of the truth in the yoga process. Yoga has changed my life to become something so much more then I thought it would ever be. As a teacher I try to express to my students to see every moment; even if we didn’t get the pose today we are successful. The power of trying, re-trying, and continuing to try is more successful than if everything was easily attained. It is our will, our souls, that drive us to be successful. It gets us on our mats early in the morning when we can sleep in. It gets us in our cars after work and cooking dinner so we can come together and share with each other something that makes us better humans. Yoga to me is beautiful. It's breathtaking. It's empowering. It's my Freedom. It's my Magic.

Lisa Kolar

Lisa started practicing yoga in 2000, and after several years of experiencing how powerful and life-changing yoga can be, she completed her 200-hour teacher training at Blue Banyan Yoga in Philadelphia.
She loves practicing and teaching vinyasa yoga, as it can be a moving meditation, calming and strengthening the mind and the body. She loves to explore fun and creative sequencing in her classes, while always encouraging her students to cultivate awareness and honor their unique selves.
Yoga has helped Lisa navigate life's changes and challenges, and she continues to be inspired by what she learns on the mat everyday. She challenges herself and her students to stay present, be with the breath, and open up to possibility.

Katie Hunsberger

Katie began her journey to yoga in 2011 while working at the YMCA. She loves the versatility that each class brings, and the promise of feeling grounded and centered at the end of a class. She reaps many of the benefits that come along with practicing yoga, like a calmer frame of mind, mental clarity in her everyday life, and building physical strength.
Katie’s classes focus on breath work, proper alignment, and honoring your body’s individual needs. She loves helping her students develop their practice and enjoys teaching a playful and relaxed class. She completed Dana Hot Yoga’s 200 hour Teacher Training Program. She is also a registered instructor with the Yoga Alliance.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys reading, writing, baking, practicing yoga, exercising, and spoiling her dogs, June and Harper.
 

Jordann Ogle

I began my yoga journey in 2014 after years of struggling with a monotonous workout routine. After my very first yoga class, I remember feeling completely refreshed and ready to take on the world! I was immediately hooked, taking over 100 classes in a year, and experiencing my life drastically transform into a love I could have never imagined. Yoga has given me so much more than just the physical workout I initially searched for. I feel strong, happy and confident; something I have never been able to say before. One day at a time, I continue to incorporate all aspects of yoga into my life, on and off the mat. I completed my 200 hour certification through the Amma Center & Studio in October 2015. As a yoga instructor, I aim to encourage students to find their inner source of power and peace through unifying the body and breath to overcome the false limitations of the mind. When I am not on my mat, you can find me crafting, baking, reading, spending time with loved ones, or exploring the beautiful world around us.

Patty Boyle

Growing up an athlete, Patty was initially drawn to the physical aspect of yoga. As she continued to explore her practice, she began to realize how physical challenges can also lead to quieting the mind, slowing the breath and releasing tension. With a B.S. in Kinesiology and Certification in Holistic Health Counseling, becoming a yoga teacher was the perfect next step, complimenting her commitment to health and nutrition. In addition to RYT-250 certification, Patty completed a 50-hour Advanced Teacher Training with Alex Auder. Patty works for Big Brothers Big Sisters and blended her two passions, yoga and empowering youth, when she became certified to teach children’s yoga through Child Light in 2013.

Patty loves sharing her practice with students. She offers gentle assists while exploring the many benefits yoga has to offer. Her classes also include challenging asanas that are sure to encourage you to find your edge!

This is a moderately paced class and students continue to build awareness, strength, skill and focus.  It is helpful to have a basic understanding of sun salutations, but this is not required to attend the class.  Posture sequences will be linked by vinyasa flow, designed to raise energy in the body while keeping the mind steady. Various hand and arm balances may be offered, however, modifications are offered to make this class accessible to all students.
