Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Chris Greene

Chris was introduced to yoga as a form of cross training for martial arts, running and cycling as a pre-teen. A passionate adult study of yoga began in 1998 and an attraction to the Iyengar method developed in 2001 with its intuitive attention to alignment, form and movement. His fun, focused and patient approach to teaching creates a friendly, empowering and supportive climate that guides students on his/her personal level through the fundamental challenges of yoga.

 

Chris is a certified Iyengar yoga instructor through IYNAUS. He completed a 2-year Iyengar Teacher Training program with Peggy Kelley of the Austin Yoga School held at the Dallas Yoga Center, as well as additional studies with Paula Weithman, before continuing his Iyengar training. Today, his practice is centered around the Tibetan form of Buddhism and its Lojong and Lamrim approach. His non-dogmatic teaching incorporates the mindfulness techniques common to most meditation traditions.

Jessi Smith .

Jessi Smith's yoga journey began in 1998 at the Dallas Yoga Center. In the very first class she attended, the teacher (Paula) said: "It's not about where you are, it's who you are."
 
 
Something about those words woke her up. She wanted to understand more about what was said, wanting to go deeper into that. And that was the spark that stated her journey - and it's what she hopes to spark in people when they are on the mat.
 

Jessi began teaching in 1999, much sooner than she had anticipated. She found her teacher, Baron Baptiste, soon after that, and became certified by the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Institute in 2003. For several years she traveled with her teacher assisting in workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings.
 

Over the years Jessi has studied with a wide variety of teachers including Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest, Sharon Gannon & David Life, Rod Stryker, Rusty Wells, Nicki Doane & Eddie Modestini, Johnny Kest, and a host of brilliant people who also share a love for yoga.
 
 
She also enjoys the stories, and myths behind the postures, the Philosophy of Patanjali, as well as Kirtan, Yoga Nidra and Meditation.
 

Jessi has been teaching for over seventeen years, and continues to learn from the many amazing teachers and students she meets along the way. She believe all yoga works, and uses Vinyasa Yoga as a base to build each individual’s practice.
 
 
Jessi’s purpose is to empower her students to feel their best in a healthy body and content mind through the practice of yoga.
 

Caroline Besley

Caroline has been practicing yoga since 1998 and dancing since birth. She has an innate curiosity about the world, and loves how yoga teaches her something new every single day. She encourages her students to question, learn, and discover new things about their bodies, their minds, and the world around them.

 

Her teaching style and practice are influenced by the many exceptional teachers she has had the opportunity to study with, including Marylou McNamara, Margaret Townsend, and Mary Pappas-Sandonas. She earned her 200 hr RYT from the Dallas Yoga Center.

Caroline also draws from her dance background, bringing joy and freedom of movement into her teaching.

Learn the art of relaxation. A quiet, inward focused practice that uses supported passive postures to deeply relax the body, replenish prana (or energy) and restore clarity to the mind. Prepare for bliss! A great class for all levels including beginners.
