COME HOME TO YOURSELF

POWER VINYASA


This class is taught by:

Jill Gregory

Jill Gregory, 200 CYT, Hatha Yoga, began her yogic journey about 10 years ago around the same time her youngest son began the curious and active transition into toddlerhood. What began as a means to find inner peace, relaxation and endurance to lovingly and patiently accept the challenge of raising a very energetic toddler, soon became a life passion. The very first time she stepped onto her mat, she knew it was going to be a place to call “home”. Home to her spirit and to a better understanding. After months of a consistent practice, she began to see the physical benefits of a regular practice and almost by surprise began internalizing the bits and pieces of yoga philosophy taught in class. She soon found herself applying those philosophies off the mat. A seed was planted. After years of practice, she knew she wanted to teach, and received her certification at Sundari Yoga in Stroudsburg, PA. She soon realized that teaching yoga was so much more than guiding students through a litany of poses and explanations, but about drawing forth an inner strength that is already within them. Teaching for Jill became a divine opportunity to be present the first time a student becomes aware at their ability to reach beyond self-imposed limitations; to watch as they become familiar with their authenticity, their wholeness. A newly born self that each time they step off their yoga mat and into their life, they take the tools of breath work and poses to cultivate a life of peace, joy and passion.

As Jill continues her personal journey, she uses the practice of meditation and stillness to listen to the voice of her soul for guidance. She is consistently called to the study of energy and its relationship in healing the body, physically, spiritually and mentally. She is a certified Reiki practitioner and often uses her healing touch and intuition in her classes. She is an avid reader and continues to educate herself through self-study as well as attending workshops at Kripalu as well as embarking on spiritual journeys around the country.

Jill prides herself on integrating an energetic power flow class with the ability to get students to stay present and tune in to the mind-body connection. Her personal goal in all of her classes is to get students to walk off their mats, not with just a great work-out, but a deeper sense of who they are, with all of their strengths and vulnerabilities, and to instill a sense of community amongst her students, all while having a little bit of fun!

Beth Seiwell

Beth Seiwell, 200 RYT, Kripalu Yoga, has more than a decade of experience in developing a heart centered alternative healing practice. She is trained in, and integrates, many healing modalities. In a co-created sacred space, Beth helps to bring physical, energetic and emotional bodies into a state of optimal healing and repair so the body may heal itself. Using the energies of stones and minerals to create shifts in the energy of the client and clear blockages to facilitate the free flow of energy through out the body. Using conscious resonance, her intuitive process taps into energy fields and her guides direct her on where to go -to pull and shift energy- so that those who wish to heal, expand and evolve may begin the process. Beth's intuitive connections often tap into alternative lifetimes, revealing patterns people are living out in order to learn lessons needed to clear and reprogram. Beth also emphasizes the need to heal and ground on the physical level, using yoga to link breath and movement to play out stress reactions - such as pain, resistance, and discomfort. The yoga work helps clients take the spiritual and energetic work into the physical realm - allowing for skillful, effective and permanent life changes.
*Beth's credentials include: Crystal Resonance Therapist and Instructor, Primus Activation Healing Technique Practitioner and Instructor. Usui Reiki Master and Karuna RMT - Reiki Master Teacher. Her most important credentials include loving mother to Mathew, Olivia and Maia and wife to Brian. At her home and abroad she hosts sweat lodge ceremonies, vision quests, drumming circles and other indigenous gatherings, uniting community, purification, insights and celebration of life.

Rachel Stine

Rachel Stine holds her 200 CYT in Hatha Yoga from Sundari Yoga and is certified in Pre-Natal and Kids Yoga. In addition, she holds her Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education. Bringing cheer and light to her environment, Rachel is attracted to both the physical and spiritual elements of yoga; she feels the practice guides her to inner peace and strength and she naturally extends that element to her students.

Gina Cerbone

Gina Cerbone, 200 RYT, began her yogic journey in 2010 as she developed a strong connection to her Vinyasa practice which led her to complete a teacher training program with Delia Quigley and Denise Kay in July 2013.

For Gina, the Vinyasa quality of "moving mediation," coupled with her daily seated meditation, allows her to center herself when her world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Gina feels that Yoga has opened her eyes to see the person within, who she really is. Her practice helped her to find herself at a time when she felt lost. Gina believes that human nature is an important aspect of teaching yoga and a path to gain insight into others as well as one’s self by giving and receiving (sharing) the gift of yoga.

In addition to yoga, Gina has an extensive interest in things that make the world culturally diverse and intrinsically reachable for the individual. She has a big love for the arts; dancing, photography and painting; often examining the deeper meaning behind brush strokes, the artist and the culture or history that arose from a certain piece.

Gina holds her BA in Fine Arts, from Saint Joseph’s University. In the future, she plans to continue her education and receive her Masters Degree in Nutrition.

Mindy Lasoski

I attended my first hot yoga class in 2010 with little previous experience with yoga. With one class, I stumbled onto my path. Within 6 months, yoga had changed my body, and started to change my life.
Yoga has taught me what it truly means to have compassion, and has introduced me to myself. I still learn more with every practice.
As a teacher, my goal is to share the love that yoga has brought me with each soul I meet along the way – and my hope is to watch many transformations.
I am 200 hour CYT trained in the Bikram yoga style under Molly Cornell at Melt Hot Yoga, 200 CYT hour trained in vinyasa style from Peace of Mind Yoga, also certified in Hot Stretch under Vimana Yoga, and 300 CYT Through LivFree Power Yoga.
The power flow class moves fluidly through yoga poses at a faster pace creating a flow of postures that follow the breath and build internal heat. Power Flow is a form of cardio-yoga which increases blood flow and helps the body to sweat. Regular cardiovascular exercise helps to maintain heart health, reduce body fat, lower blood pressure, combat arthritis, and reduce stress.... all while building beautiful lean muscles.
* This class is not recommended for beginner students.
