Alignment-based Hatha

This class is an ever changing class that embraces the exploration of  movement with curiosity.  Stretch from strength, and align your body for balance and flexibility.  Explore not only the asana, but the transitions between, and the spaces where there is pause to notice breath. This class welcomes all-levels.

Instructor Bio:

Jamie's love of creative movement began with her first dance class at the age of two.  She continued traditional dance in ballet, tap, and jazz throughout her childhood, and into her teenage years; eventually landing on the dance team at Iowa State University, where she received a Liberal Art Degree in Political Science and a minor in Psychology.  After graduating from college, she set out looking for other ways to feed her love of movement.  Her curiosity of yoga led her to her first class, at Yoga Union, nearly 16 years ago. 

In 2008, Jamie completed her first 500 hour teacher training with Maddie Huish, of the Yoga Shala in Portland, OR.  The comprehensive two year, 500 hour teacher training, included study of anatomy, breath, Sanskrit, and philosophies outlines in The Uphanishads, The Bhagavad Gita, and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.   In 2010, Jamie completed an additional 200 hour training, led by Tiffany Cruikshank.   Tiffany's Vinyasa-based teacher training deepened Jamie's understanding in anatomy, and creative sequencing. In 2015, Jamie found herself back at Yoga Union. She completed a portion of the 200 hour teacher training, led by Annie Adamson, and was introduced to teachings and philosophies of Anusara Yoga.

Jamie is currently completing a 300 hour Yoga Therapy Training, also led by Annie Adamson, of Yoga Union, and will graduate from the program in August 2017.   Jamie also recently completed a Personal Training Certificate through the National Association of Sports Medicine.  Jamie's continual commitment to learn and grow as a student, motivates her as a teacher.  She challenges student to examine their practice within, and use that inner wisdom to guide their physical movement with fluidity and grace.

Instructor Bio: 

Kerri's love of Pilates began over 14 years ago when she was introduced to the method as a supplement to her dance training.  Years later a life of professional dancing and waiting tables led to chronic knee pain, and Kerri turned to Pilates for rehabilitation.  She found not only a mindful and sustainable method of conditioning the physique, but a passion for empowering others with this body wisdom and understanding.  While a stickler for proper alignment, Kerri believes that taking care of yourself should be fun!  She delights in helping her clients achieve their health and wellness goals, so they can move through life with ease and grace.

Kerri is  Pilates certified through Balanced Body University and the Ellie Herman Method.  As passionate about learning as she is about teaching, Kerri is continuously seeking out continuing education in new movement modalities.  She is also a Core Align instructor, a certified Melt Method Hand and Foot instructor, has trained in Preggo Pilates (pre- and post-natal), studied rehabilitation work with Lizz Roman as well as Foot and Gait Therapy under the mentorship of master trainer Nancy Myers, and most recently became a Balance Body Barre instructor.

Kerri holds a BFA in Dance Choreography from the University of Colorado, Boulder.  When not in the Pilates studio you can find her dancing, hiking, climbing, sailing or camping.
