Deep Stretch

This class is taught by:

Christine Duffen

Christine was born and raised in Southern California where she grew up extremely active in dance and gymnastics. She then moved to New Hampshire where she studied early childhood education, special education, modern dance, massage therapy, and yoga. She moved to South Carolina in 2011, and received her 230-hour yoga certification  from the Asheville Yoga Center in 2012. Yoga has always been a spiritual practice for Christine, and she credits her practice with keeping her grounded.

Maria Lages

Maria was born and raised in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She  opened Om Yoga in 2010. Maria completed her 200 hour Yoga Certification with Grace Morales in 2008, her 500hr certification with Johnna Smith in 2015, and Prenatal 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, purpose, and initiative in their daily work and in their relationships with one another. "Yoga taught me to be more grounded, and not to lose touch with who I am. My practice and teaching is always evolving. We are very supportive of each other at Om and I hope people feel at home when they come here! Our goal is to provide a peaceful space for people to breathe, move and connect."


Sue Lydon

Sue practiced yoga for the first time while visiting San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2000. It was this experience that truly sparked her love for yoga. Over the years, she has always found solace on her mat. In 2007, Sue started playing roller derby, finding her yoga breath work to be a great complement to this high endurance sport. Sue took her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at OM in 2016 with Johnna Smith and Maria Lages. Originally from Toronto, Sue has lived in 10 different cities across North America and the Caribbean. Traveling and interacting with so many cultures has opened her mind and heart. Sue is a Web Product Manager for a large technology company. She and her husband have two amazing girls who also love to bend and flow! Sue will forever be a student of yoga and she loves to share those teachings in the studio.

Pam Jamieson

Pam's yoga journey began around 6 years ago, as a path to physical health. It then became a journey inward that led Pam to a stronger connection to her intuition and heart. Pam's practice has helped her grow on and off the mat, not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually. This path of learning continues to fuel her and her teaching. Pam completed her 200-hr training in 2016 at Enlighten Yoga in Charlotte, NC. She likes to combine aspects from different styles of yoga in her classes including ashtanga, vinyasa universal, and jivamukti yoga. In Pam's classes, you will move with your breath through sequences to build strength and flexibility. Balancing poses on your feet and hands will be offered. Pam likes reminding her students that falling isn't failing - it's a chance to try again. She also believes you are stronger than you realize!
This is a very relaxing class. Restorative yoga poses will calm the mind, reduce stress and relieve anxiety. We will find stillness in poses that can be supported with props to stretch both muscles and ligaments- increasing your flexibility and range of motion. Perfect class for all levels, beginner friendly!
