Fundamentals Level 1-2


This class is taught by:

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.
 

Shelagh McElroy

Shelagh began her practice in 1996 to help alleviate career stress, and began teaching yoga full time in 2001. With a degree in psychology, she brings fun, acceptance, and a down-to-earth, humorous approach to her classes. She tailors her teaching approach in a way that both supports and challenges students.
 
 
 
She is a self-confessed anatomy geek and done extensive studies in Yoga for Scoliosis with Elise Browning-Miller, and international studies in yoga and anatomy with Gary Carter in London, and Peter Blackaby in Windsor, England and Toronto, Canada.
Regular practitioners are invited to further explore the principles of yoga in a steady, mindful manner. This class is designed to progressively develop strength, flexibility and body intelligence by introducing more advanced postures and breathing techniques in a supportive environment of enthusiastic practitioners. Often timed inversions, hand balances, deep backbends, and leg behind the head are touched on in this class. You are not expected to know how to do these postures but ready to explore them.
