Sue Briddell - (owner) is a retired high school business teacher. Sue is a certified yoga teacher who teaches Essential Yoga.   All levels are welcome.  Sue became a yoga teacher after many years of practicing yoga.

Rebecca Deacon  teaches Meditative Flow on Fridays.  Rebecca grew up in Richmond, VA and is a graduate of St Catherine's School. She graduated from Wake Forest University in North Carolina with a B.A in History in 2010. After graduation, she worked in retail and commercial banking for over 5 years alongside coaching the St. Catherine's/St. Christopher's swim team off and on during that time. Yoga found Rebecca while grieving the loss of her father. The practice has been healing both mentally and physically and helps provide her the tools to deal with a constant in life - change - both internally and externally. She is a 200 hour RYT (certified through Yoga Alliance) trained under Yogi J Miles and Kelly Kostecki through Om On Yoga in Richmond, VA (2017); and Yogi Aaron Star through Blue Osa's Pranayama Immersion Yoga Teacher Training in the rainforests of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica (2016). Even though she did not receive certification in Costa Rica due to a recurring back injury, she learned invaluable tools, knowledge and techniques from the experience that continue to influence her life and practice. Having recently moved to Sylvania, OH from Richmond, VA, Rebecca is humbled and truly grateful to be able to share the gift of yoga with others. She welcomes all levels to her classes. She aims to create a safe and mindful space for students to be able to connect with themselves in a meaningful way for them at that time and place in their day.
Rebecca enjoys doing anything outdoors and that involves the element of water - particularly swimming and floating. She also enjoys smiling and laughing with others, spending time with loved ones, writing letters and eating chocolate.

Sandy Earl -- Sandy has practiced yoga since 2000, and has taught yoga classes since 2007. She is a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance with her 200 hr. certification.  Her classes involve yoga philosophies that allow students to slow down and connect to their own hearts in this busy fast paced world. She focuses on alignment and helps students find the appropriate level of poses for themselves. Sandy’s classes are filled with fun, wholehearted laughter and enthusiasm for growing not just in our practice, but also in life using the guiding principles of yoga.  

Jenn McCullough teaches Hatha Yoga to a wide range of practitioners; believing that yoga is for "everybody".  Jenn’s classes incorporate flowing vinyasas in addition to themed instruction around physical alignment principles as well as the teachings from the Yoga Sutras and Life.  She gears her classes toward students' needs and interests and welcomes people of all ages (kids to seniors), backgrounds and abilities (from simple modifications to work with people with special needs).

Mahan Priya Kaur (Linda Polter) has been practicing yoga for several decades.  She discovered Kundalini Yoga in 2013 and knew this was what she had been looking for.  “The asanas and meditations were challenging, but what I thought was impossible was made possible through this practice.  I also was drawn to the meditations and the sounds of the mantras.”Mahan Priya has been an educator for 49 years and transitioning into being a teacher of Kundalini Yoga just seemed like a natural progression for the “next chapter”.  She endeavors to “hold the scared space” of the yoga room, bowing to the tradition of teachers of yoga who have come before us.  She wants to help students find their own way to the union of body, mind, and spirit not only through the group work but also through a daily practice of their own.  Ultimately, she hopes that all students will find their way to higher consciousness. Mahan Priya is honored to teach this workshop and introduce Kundalini Yoga to students who are looking to be transformed!  She is in deep gratitude to the folks at Harmony in Life for this opportunity.

Bonnie Yarbrough…I became a physical therapist assistant 7 years ago and during those 7 years I have worked in various settings, but my passion was helping those with balance and mobility issues. I started my Tai Chi journey about 4 years ago with the goal of one day incorporating it into my therapy sessions. I soon found another passion; teaching. I became certified in Dr. Paul Lam's Tai Chi for health about a year ago and started teaching at the Adrian Dominican Life Center and at Carter Rehabilitation Center in Adrian Michigan. i continue to improve my skills through workshops conducted by Viola Everett, Senior Trainer in Monroe Michigan and Becky Rahe, a Tai Chi Master Trainer in Toledo where I am currently working on becoming a leader in the 24 Posture Qigong, developed by Sifu George Picard.

“Just as all rivers end in the ocean, all yoga ends up raising the kundalini.
What is the kundalini?  It is the creative potential of the human being.”

The Feminine Path of Yoga

Date Change:  Sunday, August 19 from 1-3:00 p.m., Cost:  $30
The monastic notions of the yoga patriarchy are embedded with fears of the wild and uncontrollable feminine dimensions of feeling, emotion, desire, and sacred merging. We may feel calm during and after meditation, but, if left unchallenged, over time these practices can leave us devitalized and pale, with built-in inhibitions towards our wildness, pleasure, sensuality, and joy. 

Through perpetual training in masculine witness consciousness, we’ve come to mistrust the natural sensuality and deep-body knowing that is the true anchor and strength of the feminine. In this workshop, we will seek to unwind some of the patriarchal teachings of the yoga tradition in favor of a movement and meditation practice that’s truly supportive to a feminine body, psyche, and spirit.

Renew your relationship to movement, feeling, and truth. Join Jessica for this unique exploration of asana and feminine sources of wisdom.

Jessica’s bio: 
Jessica is a yoga and Tantra teacher who specializes in feminine spirituality, sexuality, and embodiment. Based part-time in India, her teachings are inspired by her travels and continued studies in Tantra, sacred dance, and feminine lineages of yoga. Jessica regularly leads yoga retreats and tours in India, Nepal, Indonesia, and the Greek Islands.
