Kim Norvell

E-RYT 200
Certified Baptiste Teacher
 
Kim was introduced to yoga for the first time in February 2011 by a roller derby teammate. After years of wanting to try yoga, she agreed to attend a class. It was exactly what she needed to balance out her Type A personality and passion for a female aggressive sport. She quickly discovered that a regular Baptiste Power Yoga practice not only suited her physically, but transformed her mental state as well, allowing her to find a more peaceful and loving way of life.

Hillary Nielsen

Teacher, RYT 500
 
Hillary "accidentally" found yoga after a last-minute schedule change at her gym swapped yoga for the class she was planning to attend. She was recovering from a back injury and hadn't been able to be active in the ways she was used to, but yoga opened her eyes to a physical practice her body would thank her for. 
 
Hillary graduated from SPY's teacher training program in November 2014. She brings joy and passion to her teaching, along with a genuine desire to help others experience their own exciting journey--both on and off their mats.

Emily Bowser

Emily’s first experience with yoga was the class she never attended – she was too scared to walk through the door. The following day she returned and kept coming back day after day. Years later, she is still just as in love with this practice as when she first began. Emily also loves spending time with her family, making art, swimming in the ocean and dancing in her living room.

Maggie Cunningham

Maggie first experimented with a yoga practice in 2016 in an attempt to counteract the stress of her work life (and overachieving nature). What got her in the door of Savannah Power Yoga was the efficiency of getting cardio, strength training, stretching, and mindfulness work all done in one hour. However, it was the warm community and physical, mental, and emotional healing that kept her coming back. Cool lavender eye towels also helped. She completed her SPY 200 Hour Teacher Training in the summer of 2018, and is now excited to share the transformational power of yoga with others.

Outside of the studio, Maggie loves to travel, go to concerts, practice drums, and indulge in all things Beatles.

This class will teach you the fundamental poses and breathing techniques used in all of our power yoga classes. If you are new to the practice, looking to fine-tune some of your poses, and/or you want a slower paced flow - this is a great class for you! This class is heated to 90 degrees.
