Vinyasa Mixed Levels


This class is taught by:

Mike Mauren

Mike began his yoga studies in 2001 as an Iyengar student as a means to better manage the stresses of corporate life. In 2002, Mike focused his practice on the various vinyasa yoga traditions of Ashtanga and Vinyasa.

 

With mindfulness of alignment, breath, and drishti, Mike has pursued the meditative benefits of the vinyasa flow. Mike has attended numerous workshops that include the Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, and Vinyasa flow traditions. In 2004, Mike completed his Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Teacher training with Shiva Rea and Manju Jois and subsequently began teaching at Dallas Yoga Center. Mike likes to encourage students to have fun with their practice and develop mindfulness and enjoy the meditative benefits practice offers.

She especially realized how yoga helped her find solace, stability, and peace no matter where her suitcases took her. She began her journey as an instructor in 2007 and received her 200hr Yoga Certification.
 
Stefanie loves vinyasa yoga, the yogic art of weaving breath with movement to help inspire the spirit, open the heart, and connect with the power and wisdom in the body. She enjoys receiving requests to creatively meet the needs of her practitioners and loves to offer a practice that is holistic, heart felt and safe. Stefanie enjoys teaching various styles of yoga; and honors her teacher Sean Johnson, and the practice of Bhakti Yoga in every class with Harmonium Sounds and Voice.

Lilah has an infectious laugh, a healthy dose of nurturing motivation and a gift of soul-plated willpower to share and empower minds toward a raise in consciousness, discipline and uplifting humanity.

Lauren Margolies

Lauren began practicing yoga in 2003 as a way to increase flexibility, but it quickly became apparent there was much more to be found. After years of trying many different styles in several studios, she found her deepest connection with a sound-vibration based power practice. This approach connected her to the amazing gift of meditation through asana, which led her to explore other meditation forms & various workshops.

After having two children, as a working mom, the importance of her yoga practice became paramount in helping create harmony in daily life. Through teacher training at the Dallas Yoga Center, Lauren discovered new ways to connect with sound meditation and restorative yoga, which once again shifted her entire perspective and practice. A profound interest in holistic wellness has led her to study Ayurveda, pranayama, aromatherapy & more. Lauren's goal as a teacher is to compassionately guide others to find more balance and peace through yoga and meditation. She hopes everyone can experience deep connection to oneself and pure bliss through any style of practice, yin to yang, and take what they learn with them off the mats.

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.

Experience a dynamic flow of yoga postures in which movement is sequenced with the breath. This practice moves at a more moderate pace to build heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and concentration. Sequencing is often built around sun salutations.  All levels welcome.
