Mixed Level Yoga


This class is taught by:

Donna Britt

Donna Britt first took yoga 15 years ago in Mexico and fell in love with its beauty, precision and spirituality. After studying Iyengar and vinyasa flow yoga locally for several years, she learned that her favorite yoga teacher was moving out of the state. Britt was flattered--and terrified--when the teacher asked if she'd like to take over teaching her class. After training with Yogafit, Britt taught yoga for three years at White Oak Sport & Health and a number of private clients. She is a member of the International Association of Black Yoga Instructors.

Rachel Henry

Rachel’s yoga journey began in 2005. What started as a means to “work out,” very quickly evolved into a place of deep reconnection with the self. The process of integrating mind, body and breath opened a new world for Rachel. A world with more self compassion, self awareness, clarity, serenity and empowerment. Rachel graduated from Blue Heron Wellness’ RYT 200 program in 2013. Rachel’s classes are light-hearted and lively while also offering the opportunity to dig deep into the potential of your postures and personal practice; peeling away the layers to re-connect with your natural, unique gifts and let your inner light shine. You can expect attention to alignment, to help finetune your asanas, as well as a sweet flow. Rachel is continuously inspired by her three playful, young children and supportive husband. Rachel is forever grateful to her beloved teachers, with whom she credits the transformation of her practice.

Hannah Leatherbury

Hannah believes that yoga guides people home – making them more self-aware and enhancing their capacity for self-expression. Her specialty is helping individuals learn how to release tension in their bodies, center their thoughts and restore their sense of well-being. Her classes incorporate restorative yoga postures, breathing, relaxation and meditation strategies for releasing stress and promoting healing. She has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She has been teaching since she received her training in classical Hatha yoga in 2009. She completed studies in Yoga Therapy in July 2011  and studies in Ayurveda in 2013.

Hannah's Clients Say:
 
 
"Hannah had a beautiful , gentle and reflective manner of presenting mild yoga and meditation for her New Year’s Eve workshop. She incorporated mind body spirit and social connection in the practice using deep relaxation, guided meditation in a circular seating arrangement and shared some personal thoughts along with a lovely poem. In additiin, near the end of the workshop, she passed around dates and chi tea after which we all shared a meaningful word with one another. I was also very impressed with her kind gesture of recording our ending OM chant for Peter who was unable to teach with her because of ill health. In conclusion it was a very uplifting and relaxing way to close out 2017. You are blessed to have Hannah as a teacher at Blue Heron." Marsha O, 12/31/17
