THE INSPIRE SERIES.
Stephanie Adams, Hood River, OR Malia Scott, Austin, TX I see magic in life with its highs and its lows. I am inspired by conflict and chaos as much as I am by ease and comfort. I like to see people in their flow. I like to see people light up when they are passionate about something. I enjoy collaborating and co-creating, dancing, running, designing, writing, reflecting, connecting, journaling, painting, back-bending, armbalancing, standing on my hands and hula hooping. I am inspired by the clouds, the moon and the stars. Malia teaches vinyasa yoga that is deeply rooted in personal development. She incorporates the breath, the bandhas, dance, dynamic sequencing and hooping as well. Her roots are in Baptiste Yoga, PranaFlow, Anusara, Shamanism, Ayurveda and Astrology.
In Yoga, shared courage, wisdom, and vulnerability inspire the blossoming of the lotus heart, where we meet in awareness and grace. This is where we become Yoga. Om Mani Padme Hum. Stephanie Adams, ERYT 500, teaches at Flow Yoga Studio and offers 60 inspired and diverse classes every week. She has completed Jaya Yoga Teacher Training (RYT 200/500).
www.flowhoodriver.com Jeanne Heileman, Los Angeles, CA I love seeing my students drop into a place of peace and acceptance within themselves at the end of a class. They become quiet, powerful, and wise. I am in awe. Jeanne brings energetic subtleties to a challenging practice. A senior ParaYoga instructor, she teaches with YogaWorks and around the globe.
