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." 

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.

This is a fun, heat building, invigorating yoga practice for intermediate and advanced students! You will be encouraged to explore inversions, arm balances, and play with the boundaries of your current limitations. Temperature: 80 degrees.
