Slow Flow


This class is taught by:

Rodolfo Tandazo

Rodolfo discovered yoga in 2014 while training with the Miami City Ballet School and continued his yoga practice while dancing professionally with Ballet Austin. Practicing yoga daily helped him cope with the constant stress and demands of being a ballet dancer. It has taught him how to embrace, trust, and send love to every part of himself. Rodolfo’s teaching is inspired by the idea that each time we step onto our mats, we are choosing the practice of creating space to slow down, turn inward, reconnect and explore. He combines alignment and flow to empower students to grow in their practice, inviting fluid movements, strength and grace.

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." 

 

Troy Haywood

Growing up as a competitive dancer, Troy has always been passionate about self-expression and self-awareness through body movement. After graduating high-school in 2007, Troy moved to Miami, Florida to pursue a career as a dancer which led him to travel all over the world, from Los Angeles to New York to Barcelona to Portugal. It was not until he settled back down at home in Charlotte that he discovered yoga and a brand new outlook on his life.

In 2011, Troy took his first yoga class in hopes to supplement his dance training as he was beginning to shift his focus from performing to teaching. His practice not only began opening his mind to new ways of moving but also new ways of reaching out and connecting with the kids he taught. With this new insight, Troy began diving deeper into his yoga practice over the next seven years.

Since then Troy has gone on to complete is 200-Hour RYT and is excited to begin marrying his love of teaching dance with his love of yoga. Troy’s classes are sure to bring out your playful side all while challenging you and keeping the focus on what yoga is all about for him: connection over competition, always.
