Slow Flow


This class is taught by:

Maria Lages

Maria was born in Rio de Janeiro, and raised in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brazil. She opened Om Yoga in January 2011, and 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 Om Yoga to incorporate and convey values such as compassion, mindfulness, integrity, and purpose in their work and their relationships with one another.  Maria is a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of over 500 hours of extensive yoga teacher training. Her love for teaching began in 2008 when she completed a 200hr training at Charlotte Yoga with Grace Morales. Since then, she has spent time practicing Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore India, and studied with Johnna Smith, Rod Stryker, Rolf Gates, Baron Baptiste, and Dharma Mittra, who are all incredibly knowledgeable teachers. "My goal is to continue to provide a peaceful and supportive space for people to breathe, move, and connect." 

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.

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.
