Flow and Release


This class is taught by:

Amy Pollok

Amy believes that committing to a consistent yoga practice has transformed her life. I didn’t come to love and appreciate my body until I started a consistent yoga practice. Through yoga I learned to see myself in a different light. When we learn to balance breath with movement, increasing our focus and discernment, we begin to expand our consciousness, that’s when we begin to see results on and off the mat. We move with less resistance and more love. Our relationship with ourselves and with others improves. We discover a flow in our day and joy in our interactions that wasn’t present in the past. Yoga has really shown me that positive change is possible and that’s what I wish for my students. Amy trained in Power Vinyasa, Hatha yoga, Body – Mind Centering and Body-based Gestalt Psychotherapy. Amy is a 200 hr. RYT and an RSMT (Somatic Movement Therapist) with a practice in Takoma Park, MD.

Sara Crosby

Trained as a dancer her whole life, Sara first saw Vinyasa yoga as a natural supplement to her dancing. Though after discovering Prana Flow in 2006, her commitment to yoga jumped to a whole new level. The guided free form movement and creative, flowing sequencing really resonated; it was like dancing on her mat.
Sara is currently studying to complete her 500 hour RYT in Prana Flow. Yoga has also ignited a deep passion for service work, with a focus on sustainable community development, taking Sara both across continents and into her own backyard. Currently she lending her efforts to help develop The Growing Hope Initiative, a new non-profit dedicated to using organic agriculture, yoga and the arts to transform communities in Southern Florida and the Keys.
She also recently completed the Off the Mat and Into the World Leadership Training Program and hopes to continue to use yoga as a means to unite, heal and empower.
When not on the mat, Sara works as a documentary film producer and new mom to a beautiful baby girl.

Lauren Schulz

Lauren has been a student of yoga since 1997 and completed her 200-hour training at Blue Heron in 2012. She draws from a variety of styles in her teaching and believes yoga helps us to be more ourselves. Her classes emphasize breath, grace, and that delightful intersection of steadiness and ease. Lauren lives with her family in Silver Spring and teaches Hatha, Tweens and Kundalini yoga.

Tanory Ateek

With a background in dance and a Master’s Degree from a seminary, mindful movement has been a part of Tanory's life and process for a very long time.  She worked for ten years in nonprofit organizations, then having children brought her back to mindful movement and spiritual practices.

She has been practicing yoga and meditation off and on since 2002, and teaching since 2011.

She teaches gentle and challenging flows, infused with buddhist mindfulness practices.

Tanory"s Clients Say:

"Beautiful space! Loved Tanory's Wednesday night class - I was visiting from out of town and instantly felt welcomed and comfortable❤️ Scarlett N., 9/2016

"The Yoga II class taught by Tanory Ateek on Wednesdays at 7 PM is phenomenal. Her yoga teaching skills are impressive. She plans vigorous yet meditative sequences of asanas which deepen the yoga student's practice. I strongly recommend the yoga classes taught by her to intermediate to advanced yoga practitioners." Nandi L., 10/15

Designed to both invigorate and unwind, this yoga practice will begin with a dynamic, flowing vinyasa sequence and end with a restorative sequence of poses which will send you into the rest of your day feeling relaxed and renewed.
