Kathleen Snider - Instructor C.Y.T. 200
When I was younger, I tried just about every sport I could and while I embraced being part of a team and spending time in the fresh air, the movement never felt quite right in my body. Years later, I decided to take a yoga class on a whim as a college student and fell in love with the challenging sequences, purposeful transitions, and breath fueled community. Six years and countless classes later, I decided to further my own practice and obtained a 200 hour certification through Satya Life Yoga School in November 2021. As a teacher, I hope to create a safe space for all students to release tension, challenge themselves, and create community through breath and movement, from start to savasana.
Laura Jelich- Instructor C.Y.T. 200
What I love about yoga is the opportunity it presents, every practice, to be completely present with my breath & fully engaged in my whole body, channeling all my energy and focus into each asana. As a lifelong athlete, outdoor enthusiast, restless adventurer and someone who is always on the move with endless energy to "do", I often struggle to just "be". Yoga has helped me grow in this area, on & off the mat, teaching me to be aware of and notice myself with curiosity and non-judgement, to listen to my body and the wisdom it knows, & to come back to the present moment and what's in front of me when I feel myself spiraling. I am a strong believer in continuous learning, reflection, and readjusting, & I was eager to learn more about the holistic benefits of and uses for yoga. But my real motivation for becoming R.Y.T. 200 certified in 2020, was because I want to safely create the space for others that yoga has given to me through moving meditation. I hope when you come to my class you feel at ease, supported, and challenged in your practice, so that you are fully free to make the time your own, whatever you may need that day - a break, a reboot, a check in, or just some good energy!
