In 2009, Tammy took her first yoga class, beginning a life-changing journey. She frequented the gym daily and was an avid walker; however, after her very first yoga class, she never lifted another weight. She replaced her previous work-out routine with a dedicated yoga practice. She still enjoys taking daily walks to experience the world and its beauty. Each day, Tammy looks forward to sharing yoga with others.
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.
Pam is an RYT-200 (certified in 2013) and a Certified Reiki Practitioner / Energy Healer who has been practicing yoga since 2000. Her true passion is helping others find relief from suffering so that they may fully experience joy in all its forms. Yoga provided deep peace and acceptance during a time of severe depression when she first began practicing, and has since then continued to offer her an opportunity to practice mindful and present living daily. Her attention to the details of alignment in the poses provides a strong practice base for her students, especially those who have dealt with injuries in the past. Pam lives in Fort Mill with her youngest daughter Taylor, in a 216 square foot "tiny house" and is loving the minimalist lifestyle!
