This class is taught by:

Maria Lages

Maria was born and raised in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She opened Om Yoga at the age of 22 in 2010. Maria credits her entrepreneurial success to being incredibly passionate about making a difference in other people's lives. Over the years Om has become a place of community, friendships, support, and inspiration to many. Maria encourages everyone who is a part of this growing community to incorporate and convey values such as compassion, mindfulness, integrity, purpose, and initiative in their work and in their relationships with one another. "Yoga has taught me not to lose touch with who I am. Your yoga practice is what you want it to be. It is ever evolving and it changes based on what your needs are."


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."

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. 


April Cannon

April has been practicing Yoga for over 15 years. She has studied with many amazing teachers such as Laruga Glaser, John Bultman, Tim Miller, Michael Gannon, and Baron Baptiste to name a few. As a result, April brings to Om over 800 hours of Yoga education and training. Her classes are full of charisma, laughter and community, as well as many opportunities to take your practice to the next level. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned practitioner you will leave her classes with a greater understanding of postures and alignment. Not to mention some yummy assists! April is a survivor of Sepsis, a life threatening complication of an infection in which the body begins to shut down to protect itself. 28-50% of people with Sepsis die annually. Those who survive often have organ damage, PTSD, and/or loss of limbs. She is grateful for her recovery and strives to share with her students the importance of gratitude for even the smallest of things. She holds a BA in Middle Eastern studies from the University of Texas at Dallas and has been married to her husband John for 20 years.
