Meet Liz, Our Newest Mighty Teacher!

What do you like about Pilates?

I immediately gravitated toward Pilates because of it’s “smart” movements and the meanings behind them. In other words, Pilates exercises are extremely efficient and effective. After a class I always walk away feeling a little sharper in the mind and stronger and longer in the body. I’m able to take that with me throughout my day and into other physical activities I participate in.

What makes you Mighty?

Honesty and compassion…and a good plank!  

Meet Newest Mighty Teacher - Sophie!

How did you get introduced to Yoga?

I started practicing yoga in college to decompress and relieve stress. I also had numerous injuries from dance training and was trying to find an alignment focused technique to help heal my body. I started in the Ashtanga method which I loved and then branched out into Vinyasa Flow and Anusara styles to continue deepening my knowledge base. All these styles helped me heal in different ways.

 

Mighty Yogi of the Month: February 2017

Name: Julie Carmalt

Favorite yoga pose: Ardha Chandrasana because some days it eludes me and some days I feel as if I’m soaring!

What fuels you? I’ll be 50 this year and I still just want to play and be dorky. I hope I remain dorky for the rest of my days.

My NON-guilty pleasure is... coffee dates with my husband (with a slab of chocolate cake).

Mighty Yogi of the Month: January 2017

Name: Hannah Swegarden

Favorite yoga pose: Revolved Triangle...it's one part of the practice that helps me twist out all sorts of bad energy, stretch the whole body, and, at the same time, makes me feel like I'm weaving through museum security laser lights.

Yoga is...a companion.

My NON-guilty pleasure is... giving my roommate's dog an extra treat now-and-then.

When I wake up in the morning, I always do these two things...  A) make a French press of coffee and B) drink it all.
