Power Hour

This class is taught by:

Kristine Powers

Kristine's first yoga class was in 2010 shortly after she gave birth to her son. At first, she thought that this yoga thing wasn’t for her... but she liked shavasana. In 2014, she started long-distance running and found yoga again to help balance the effects of running on the body. When she discovered what yoga could do as a stand-alone practice, everything shifted. This practice has opened her eyes, opened her heart and given her the tools to navigate this chaotic, beautiful life.

Fun fact: Kristine love Oreos, Disney, and really long shavasanas.

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.

Biza Mabry

RYT 200

Biza took her 1st yoga class 6 years ago and thought it was slow and boring. She decided yoga was not her thing. Biza is a cardio junky. She has been teaching aerobics for 5 years, TRX for 3 years and a personal trainer for 3 years, Biza is also an avid runner. She loves to sweat and get her heart pumping. When SPY opened friends told her that she would love it. After arguing that she would not she decided to give it a try. Well, the rest is history. Biza was hooked. Not only was she sweating and getting her heart pumping she discovered that there was much more. It opened her heart. She has learned to control situations that she could not control before just by breathing and not reacting. Stepping back and finding joy in things that are not always joyful.

Richard Burcham

Richard started doing yoga after a lifetime of distance running. He brought his tight hamstrings and lower back with him and was hooked after his first yoga class. Richard found that increased flexibility was just the beginning. Yoga is a great way to build physical and mental strength too! He began teaching in Ohio, and when he retired and moved to Savannah, he found a new yoga home at Savannah Power Yoga.

When not at the studio, Richard enjoys running, spending time with his family, and woodworking.

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.
