Gentle Power (No Heat)


This class is taught by:

Katherine Johnson

Substitute Teacher, RYT 200
 
Katherine came to yoga in her retirement after 30+ years as an educator. She started out on the WiiFit, progressed to DVD's and finally made it to her first Gentle class at Savannah Power Yoga almost four years ago. One thing led to another and she decided to enroll in the teacher training program. Katherine wants to share her love of yoga with others.
 
In addition to yoga, Katherine is an avid gardener, enjoys cooking and entertaining, and likes to travel when she can. She is devoted to her husband of 43 years, her two sons and daughter-in-law, and her new granddaughter. Her dog, Augie, holds a special place in her heart. She believes that everyone can benefit from the joys of yoga. Who knew??? At 60+ years old, Katherine has found a new passion in life. She has also found a new home-away-from-home at Savannah Power Yoga.

Constance Gabrielli

RYT 500 Certified Teacher
 
Con took her first yoga class in 2004 at her gym to see what all the fuss was about. It looked like it might be a change from her usual workout. As a lifelong sceptic she wasn't expecting to like it. She came out of that first class totally relaxed and she was hooked.

Con found a yoga studio and started regular classes. By 2008 she signed up for 200 hour teacher training. She was by far the oldest student. In 2009 she started teaching Baby Boomers and Seniors showing them ways to increase flexibility and improve balance. Her mission to keep the aging population strong and healthy.

When Kate opened SPY, Con followed her there and took the first Advanced Teacher Training adding another 100 hours to her resume.

Con has led yoga retreats in France and spent a month in 2012 in India. After years of struggling with meditation and the more spiritual side of yoga, Con has plunged into the deep end of the pool and come up smiling.

She completed a 28 day meditation with Sally Kempton the summer of 2012 and took private meditation and nidra classes in India. The journey continues here at SPY with meditation, pranayama and yoga nidra classes. Con invites everyone to come along.

Kate Doran

Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Teacher, RYT500
 
Kate started practicing yoga in 1998 to balance out the physical stress of her running habit and the mental stress of working in the software industry. During the years since, she has turned a weekend hobby into her vocation. With more than 1,000 hours of teacher training under her belt, Kate brings a breadth of experience to her teaching.

Hillary Nielsen

Apprentice Teacher, RYT 200
 
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.
This class is designed to move and stretch your body at a slower pace. If you are looking for a class without any jumping or fancy arm balances, this is the class for you. We do not heat the room during this practice.
