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.

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!

Amanda Taylor

Since beginning her yoga practice in 2011, everything in Amanda’s life has changed. She has navigated some of the most difficult and wonderful passages of life: grief, joy, beginnings, and endings, through the sweat and transformation found on her yoga mat. Amanda believes that yoga allows her to be the best version of herself. She finds that her personal yoga practice is her foundation, and the place that she draws strength from physically, mentally, and spiritually. Amanda is the mother to four amazing daughters, a writer and blogger, a widow, a philanthropist, and a non-profit fire-starter. She believes that yoga and adventure heal like nothing else, and she has worked with veterans with PTSD, inner-city youth, children, and other special population groups. Amanda travels the world with her girls and writes about their adventures to inspire other single moms to live their best, most authentic lives every day. Amanda completed her RYT-200 teacher training in May of 2013 with her mentor and friend Johnna Smith and Tanner Bazemore at Y2 Yoga in Charlotte, NC. She has BA degrees in English and psychology, and is currently working on her MFA in creative non-fiction writing at Queens University. She is also a reiki master and enjoys incorporating healing touch into her yoga classes. Amanda is passionate about teaching kid’s yoga, deep stretch, and traditional vinyasa flow classes. Being able to share her love of yoga with her students is an incredible source of joy and inspiration in Amanda’s life. She hopes to see you on your mat soon.

"My goal is to provide a peaceful and supportive space for people to breathe, move, and connect." 

 

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!
