KELLEE DOHRMAN

* Saturday, April 29th (3pm-4:30pm)

* Saturday, May 20th (3pm-4:30pm)

Each time I guide a yoga class it flows straight from my heart.
I allow my experience and intuition to weave through and into the needs
of not just the entire class as a whole, but every individual in it.
By allowing the class to be composed in this way, I remain a student,
also learning, and I merely personify the teachings.

ALEXIS SALAZAR

* Saturday, May 13th (9am-10am)

* Saturday, June 17th (9am-10am)

I believe that a happy, healthy life with a tad of adventure is a life lived in balance and a life lived well. I have found a way of healthy living, and believe it is my purpose to share my passion and skills with others. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest, and my goal is to assist each person individually with the correct tools and encouragement to help them thrive in their daily lives: EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Passion drives me. That is the reason for the start of ThriveFit Wellness, and my drive behind it every day. My sharing of skills includes: personal training, yoga, guided meditation, and thai yoga massage. I love the look on my clients’ face when they hit a goal, accomplish a task, or push through a mental roadblock that they once thought couldn't be possible. In that moment, I know I’m living my purpose, and look forward to helping all who are willing to become the best versions of themselves!

KRISTIN ENGLISH

Not currently scheduled.

My intention is to serve others by sharing these ancient forms of self-directed healing that I have and will continue to learn from so many amazing teachers: to provide others with these simple tools that are available to each one of us, no matter our situation. Yoga and Meditation are such gifts in an era geared at keeping us distracted, busied and outwardly drawn. By our own efforts, learning to work with conscious movement and breath, as well as acquiring the skills to quiet the mind and move inward, we can learn about our own true nature and participate more masterfully in the unfolding of this life’s journey.

DAWN HAYES

Not currently scheduled.

Dawn began to study yoga in 2001 and began teaching in 2005. Many people have inspired and encouraged Dawn in her path to teach, but she thinks Tias Little, Gabriel Halpern, and Christina Sell have had the strongest influence on her as a student and teacher. She values their guidance and support of her and continues to dive deep in practice at their encouragement. It is this same relationship and attitude that she aspires to provide her students.

Dawn’s classes emphasize breathing, alignment, balance, and grounding as keys to unlocking basic and advanced postures. The breath is always a foundation that we flow from, and the mechanics or actions of a pose will build from the breath. Some classes will find more steadiness and holding of poses to build strength and stamina. Other classes will find more flow as grace and breath meet in the practice. Expect to build up to new things and break down a pose or two each class.

Exploring different variations and prop set-ups in the same poses help to reveal the many layers of each asana. You will find that there are many props available and sometimes you'll use all of them! There are countless creative ways to use blocks, straps, and blankets, as well as the more exotic chairs, sandbags, and wall-ropes.

Dawn finds that contemplative practice is an important part of her daily practice and her classes. Yoga practice is not limited to asana alone, and taking time for contemplation and meditation is important in our fast-paced and connected world.

ARUNA

Not currently scheduled.

Having immersed herself in the study of yoga, Aruna utilizes the various limbs to navigate through life in a balanced manner. Aruna began her training in the Ashtanga Vinyasa style of yoga, with Bhavani Maki, who was also her initial inspiration into the exploration of yoga philosophy. This exploration prompted her to seek the guidance of Baba Hari Dass and continue her training at the Mount Madonna Center, where for many years she taught for their teacher training program. Her practice and teaching style have been deeply influenced by her time spent in India studying at the Tantra-based Bihar School of Yoga, as well as by a number of other master teachers from a wide variety of traditions from all over the world. Aruna has completed her 500-hour YTT, has studied Thai Massage, has had years of training in the practice of Restorative Yoga, and is a Certified TRE Facilitator (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises).

As a student of Baba Hari Dass, Aruna has been encouraged to deepen her own yoga practice by living and sharing a holistic approach to yoga. She is inspired by weaving meditation, yoga philosophy, mantra, pranayama, bandha, mudra and ayurveda into mindful yet playful asana classes for all levels of practitioners. In addition to her dedication to her personal practice, Aruna especially loves the context and container of a group or shared Yoga practice.

In recent years, Aruna has become inspired by the Hatha form of Shadow Yoga as shared by Shandor Remete, and she currently studies the forms with Scott Blossom. She has also been deepening and sharing her love for sacred sound, especially in the form of Kirtan.
