This class is taught by:

Michelle Miller

Born in Canada, Michelle's love for movement and exercise began at a young age in professional dance. She started practicing yoga in 1998 in LA. Michelle's passion is to connect with people. She lives to share her knowledge and experiences to help those on their path of self-discovery and personal growth. She successfully completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program in May 2015, led by Johnna Smith and Maria Lages. She is grateful for her wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children who fill her heart with love.

Stacy Thompson

Stacy began practicing yoga in the summer of 2006, just a few days after graduating college. She began studying yoga at home with the help of books and DVDs, then attended her first studio class a few months later. Over the next few years, Stacy moved around a lot. However, her yoga practice remained a constant anchor. She practiced different styles of yoga all across the country. After moving to Charlotte, Stacy received her 200-hour RYT certification through Melody White and Greg Labarbera in May 2010 on her 26th birthday. Stacy teaches Samdaana Yoga (developed by Melody White) as well as vinyasa classes, allowing her to develop and share her own sequences, which she is particularly passionate about. She shares, “Yoga gives you back what you put in and more, but the benefits can take time to manifest themselves, and often in ways you hadn’t even imagined. Sometimes you have to surrender a little to truly receive. This is why I know I’ll practice yoga for the rest of my life.” When she’s not doing yoga, Stacy enjoys cooking and exploring the Charlotte food scene (she is a trained chef), reading, writing, running, traveling, music, and looking for reasons to laugh. 

 

Maria Lages

Maria was born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She opened Om Yoga in 2010. Maria completed her first 200 hour Yoga Certification with her beloved teacher, Grace Morales, in 2008. She traveled to India to study Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore with V. Sheshadri in 2012, completed a 500hr certification with Johnna Smith in 2015, and her Prenatal Yoga Certification with Amani Murray in 2017. Maria credits her entrepreneurial success to being incredibly passionate about making a difference in other people's lives. She encourages everyone who is a part of the Om Yoga community to incorporate and convey values such as compassion, mindfulness, integrity, and purpose in their daily work and in their relationships with others. "My goal is to provide a peaceful and supportive space for people to breathe, move, and connect." 

 

Allyson Rooney

Allyson, a physical therapist of over 24 years, has diverse clinical experience treating patients with both neurological and orthopedic conditions. She spent the first 19 years of her career in New York City at Mount Sinai Medical Center. In addition to clinical practice in multiple settings throughout the Medical Center, Allyson held leadership roles including Program Manager for the Outpatient Physical Therapy Department, Clinical Coordinator of the Physical Therapy Student Program, and Educator in various Accredited Physical Therapy Programs throughout New York City. Allyson relocated with her husband and two young daughters to Fort Mill 5 years ago. She currently works as a physical therapist in the Outpatient Department at Carolinas Rehabilitation Mount Holly. Allyson has been practicing yoga for over 10 years, and most recently completed her RYT-200 training through Ayana Yoga to deepen both her personal and clinical practice. She is currently teaching Yoga at the Fort Mill YMCA and Om Yoga. She enjoys running, yoga, traveling, and spending time with her family.

Erna Parelle

Erna took her first yoga class on her summer break between sophomore and junior years in college. While slow to start, the love of the practice and a deep appreciation for the cultivation of mindful living past the physical asanas grew strong over the following years. In 2009, Erna received her 200-hour RYT training from Melody White & Greg Labarbera, and has been teaching Vinyasa Flow in the Charlotte area since. Her sequencing is designed to create a thoughtful mix of effort in movement and ease of flow, which aids practitioners in developing grace in body, mind, and spirit. Life moves fast. The practice of yoga allows us to steady the mind, strengthen the body, and expand the heart, opening ourselves to endless possibilities.

Alex Lancucki

Alex found yoga in 2009. She was initially introduced to yoga as a form of exercise and movement, but it didn't take long for her to see the shifts that were occurring in her life beyond the physical. Alex completed a 200-hour teacher training certification with Jaimis Huff Flynn and Jennifer Busco in the Summer of 2016. Off the mat, you'll find her being a dog mom of three to Hugo, Freya, and Tony, and riding bikes with her husband, Ben, around Charlotte."Gratitude and focusing on what I have inside of me vs. what I own are really important values I like to share with others that are on a yogic path."
