Deep Stretch & Mindful Meditation

This class is taught by:

Sabra Hanson

I have been a competitive athlete since a very early age, loving the endorphin rush and the thrill of competition. I completed the Iron Man in Lake Placid in 1999, the Galveston Half Iron Man in 2012 and the Iron Man in Louisville, Kentucky also in 2012 and was a competitive swimmer in Canada. After enduring many unresolved injuries throughout my body I turned to yoga. Through yoga I found a new edge and understanding, free from injuries. Peace with strength, flexibility and endurance were what then evolved for me. I tell follow athletes and students to listen to their own bodies and that they hold the master key to their possibilities. Various teachers have influenced me in the practice of yoga including Baron Baptiste and Dave and Cheryl Oliver. Still learning I hope to continue to help others to realize their potential.

Shelley Beeson

I began my yoga journey after I had my second child. I fell in love with the practice immediately. It challenged me and brought me peace & patience when I needed it most. I practice a vigorous vinyasa flow that is Ashtanga based. I love my precious 2 boys, yoga and music. I completed my 200 hour Ashtanga & Vinyasa training with the amazing Julie Boyd & Sanskrit scholar Cheryl Oliver of Scottsdale, Arizona. I am registered as a certified teach with the National Yoga Alliance. My yoga practice has strengthened my mind, body and soul.

Constance Poitou

Born in France, I graduated from The University of Sorbonne with a degree in mathematics. Due to my eclectic roots, I've adopted a scientific approach to my teaching ---exploring and experimenting---searching for innovative ways to incorporate breathing into my practice. I’ve done intensive trainings and workshops with Bryan Kest, Shiva Rea, and have since been impacted by Wanderlust Yoga’s geniuses, Schyuler Grant and Chad Dennis.
I'm currently working with elite athletes at Michael Johnson Performance, McKinney, Texas, where I've been developing a yoga-based movement sequence using muscle activation and breathing techniques to optimize posture and achieve proper alignment.

Erin Brandao

Erin started taking yoga classes in college ten years ago and loved it but it wasn't until a few years ago that she decided to make a career out of it. She was certified to teach adults through the Namah Shivaya school here in Dallas in 2011 and received additional training to teach children through Yogees by Taylor Yoss in 2012. She truly believes in the power of yoga to heal and grow, both physically and mentally, and she is excited to bring yoga to a wide cross-section of the community at We Yogis studio.

Nicki Bylina

In 2004, at age 18, I graduated from the Asten Center of Natural Therapeutic Massage, opening my eyes to a variety of methods in body work and natural remedies. After practicing massage from 2004 – 2007, I traveled to Thailand to study the ancient technique of Thai Yoga Massage at the prestigious Thai Massage School of Chaing Mai. I immediately fell in love with the Thai culture and practice of Thai Massage as it combines two of my personal favorites, Yoga and massage!

Yoga has been a key foundation in my life since beginning dance as a young girl. I primarily practiced Classical Ballet, but never hesitated to adventure into other forms of dance including Afro-Jazz, Tap and Modern. Yoga was the essential ingredient to create strength, flexibility and balance. After retiring from a dance career of 14-years, I ran full force into the arms of the Yoga world. In 2009 I studied the philosophy and practice of Yoga in Mesa, AZ at 5th Element Yoga, and received my 300-hour Yoga Teacher Registration with Yoga Alliance.

The philosophy of Yoga eventually opened my eyes to the practice of mindful meditation. Breathing and meditation techniques are a daily routine of mine which I believe has created a new level of compassion and joy in my life. I studied under a disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddihist Monk and author who teaches mindful meditation. Meditation deepened my belief that health is our birthright. Now I provide a comprehensive application of mindful meditation, breathing and relaxation techniques.

This yoga experience focuses on deep stretches (Yin tradition) and increasing flexibility. Curious about the benefits of meditation? This class also incorporates mindful guided meditation techniques in a non-intimidating way to release stress, sharpen focus, and enable total relaxation. After incorporating this practice into your yoga routine, you will no doubt see improvements, body and mind. Great for athletes, on-the-go yogis and anyone looking for a quiet, calm space to practice and do a little soul searching.  (1 hour; Intensity Level 1)
