Power Yoga with Jill Bartine @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jul 23 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

Jill Bartine, M.M., RYT

JillB_headshotJill Bartine has been a teacher for more than half her life. As a classically-trained flutist who performs with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, her first outlet for her teaching passion was music.  She is thrilled to now include yoga to her teaching repertoire after completing her 200-hour RYT certification in August 2011.  By the fall of 2013, she had already logged over 1,000 teaching hours, which made her eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 200 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher).  She also holds a Bachelor of Music in flute performance from Northwestern University and a Master of Music from the University of Tennessee.

Having never been a fitness buff, Jill stepped into her first yoga class in 2002, and it was love at first sight.  Over the years that she has practiced, she is continually amazed at the benefits yoga has brought to her life – physical fitness, better posture, mental clarity, self-confidence, increased flexibility on and off the mat, and a general sense of peace and gratitude.

Professional musical performance employs controlled breath, body awareness, energy, creativity, rhythmic flow, and harmony — all qualities of a successful yoga practice.  Jill draws upon these elements in her classes, helping her students to feel in tune with their bodies and spirit, and those around them.  She professes to have “yoga ADHD” and constantly seeks new ways to experience poses and offer them to her students in a dynamic, playful way.

Jill teaches power and vinyasa group classes at multiple studios in Knoxville and also enjoys teaching private sessions for individuals and small groups. Connect with Jill via email:  flutistyogini@gmail.com ,  facebook.com/flutistyogini,

Yin Yoga with Becky Maze, RYT-500 @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jul 23 @ 5:30 pm – 6:15 pm

YIN YOGA with Becky Maze, RYT-500

Yin yoga is a passive series of poses held for 3-5 minutes each. These poses target the deep connective tissues of the body and the fascia that cover the body to help regulate the flow of energy in the body. It is unique in that you relax in the posture. You soften and it can be meditative. Some benefits:

  • calms the mind
  • regulates energy
  • increases mobility, especially joints, connective tissue/flexibility
  • lowers stress/relaxation
  • greater stamina
  • lubricates joints
  • helps TMJ/migraines
  • aids in Yang practices (flow/vinyasa, etc)
  • teaches you to listen to your body

Practice both Yin/Yang (other types of Yoga) for balance.


Becky Maze is a Knoxville native. She has shown an interest in yoga since her college days. This desire to know yoga’s balance intensified in 2005 as her life changed and growing pains ensued. She is also a Dental Hygienist and holds a B.S. in Health Education. She considers nutrition and overall health an important consideration in yoga practice. She believes that our body is but a vessel for our spirit and we need to treat it kindly. She has been privileged to be involved in the lives of several local cancer survivors over the last 20 years.

She studied yoga under Asheville’s Cindy Dollar (Iyengar Method) at the Glowing Body and she claims Patty Dougherty to be one of her most precious mentors. She has a love for vinyasa and yin. She practices Reiki as well. Her personal yoga journey has brought her into a more balanced lifestyle, which she delights in sharing with others through teaching. Yoga truly helps one find that balance of mind, body, and soul and guides you into the present moment where life truly exist!

Mindful Yoga with Judson @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jul 27 @ 5:45 pm – 7:15 pm

Mindful Yoga with Judson Nichols moves to Breezeway Yoga Studio

judson_garden-namasteThe focus of Mindful Yoga is to bring the mind back into the body. Generally, our attention is scattered all over: the past, the future, other places.  In our practice, we bring our mental focus back to the body. We search our body for stress and tension with our mind’s eye, and then we practice letting it go. Along the way, we also become stronger, more flexible, and more at peace.

Call or text questions to 865-963-6042.

About Judson:

Judson Nichols enjoys tailoring his classes around his students’ specific needs. Every body is different, and each has its own path back to a state of balance. Since he began teaching yoga in Knoxville in 2008, the emphasis of his teaching has been to guide each student toward a happy medium. If we’re too stressed, then we learn to relax more.  If we’re too prone to multi-tasking, then we learn to focus the attention. If we’re too tight, we get more flexible. If we’re too flexible, then we stabilize the joints.  It’s all about bringing conscious choices and awareness to your life to give you more freedom to be who you need to be.  

When he’s not teaching yoga, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their small herd of cats. His other work involves writing custom software to help businesses become more efficient.

You can email him at judson@judsonnichols.com.  His website is http://judsonnichols.com/yoga.

Qi Gong and Gentle Yoga with Mark Drake @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jul 29 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Qi Gong and Gentle Yoga with Mark Drake

Mark Drake is returning to Breezeway to lead gentle yoga mixed with QiGong each Saturday morning during the month of July.

Qigong (also often spelled Chi Kung) is roughly translated from Chinese to mean “internal energy exercise”. It is a broad term that encompasses the many practices that have evolved from China over the past few thousand years designed to give its practitioner vibrant health and longevity. T’ai Chi is the most well known form of qigong here in the West.

Mark’s teaching is largely based on the practice known as Zhan Zhuang, which is most commonly translated as “standing like a tree”. This simple, yet profound practice, over time, generates greater and greater levels of energy within the body, increasing health and immunity, decreasing the effects of stress, and stimulating abundant creative energy.
