Yoga for You with Jennie Berger @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Yoga for You  |  Sundays, 10:00-11:00AM

Sunday. Yoga. You. Three words that go together like peas and carrots…and potatoes. 😉 Get the most out of your Sunday and join Jennie for this fun and encouraging class. Incorporating a blend of yoga styles and poses to accommodate any and all levels of practitioner—This is *Yoga For You*.  We’ll offer posture breakdowns and modifications along with more vigorous options to take your practice to the next level, if you wish to. There will also be opportunities to explore the deeper, internal dynamics of a pose and how it feels within your own body. Discover your edge and work to it. Be kind and patient with yourself. Leave class with a calmer mind and spirit, a strong supple body, and a gentle heart. Make Sunday count!


Jennie Berger, RYT 200

It was clear from an early age that Jennie and yoga were destined for one another. A youth gymnast, she also dabbled in various forms of dance and eventually, in 1993, found a local yoga studio in town and took her first class. She instantly fell in love and over the 20 plus years that followed has continued to explore various types of yoga styles and teachers around the world.

Jennie’s training is rooted in classic Ashtanga yet she’s not very traditional when it comes to yoga, or life for that matter. 😉 She adores stirring her own blend of colors into every class and sees each practice as a blank canvas with the opportunity to paint any picture you want. This is, after all, your practice. She has a deep passion for animals, music, health and nutrition, and wants nothing more than to share her love of yoga with others.

Contemplative Movement Series — Theory and Practice with Siobhan McAuley @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm

Process-Based Contemplative Movement

In these classes students will learn The Process which is a framework that will help achieve deep, lasting peace and an internally sourced experience of happiness, regardless of circumstances or situation. The aim is to fully embody our experience of practice through The Process combining theory, contemplation and action so we can learn to be fully present in our bodies as they are. Students are encouraged to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete and thorough experience.

 

Contemplative Movement – Theory & Practice

This class introduces students to The Process framework that we use to understand how the body communicates to us and through us. Each class is like a workshop and begins with a teaching followed by deep rest and seated meditation. 
 
In order for our bodies to utilize their innate healing capacities we must first learn to dismantle our chronic states of heightened anxiety, tension and a lack of focus that typify modern life. Once a deep state of relaxation is present we can begin to access the parasympathetic nervous system which is needed for lasting healing to take place while cultivating a stillness of mind that we can carry with us into  our daily lives. 
 
All are welcome. No movement or yoga experience is required, only an open mind and a willingness to learn, grow and heal from within. 
*Students may wish to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete & thorough experience of the practice.

Teaching since 1998, her aim is to help students experience the consciousness that is witness to who we believe ourselves to be so we can expand beyond the limitations of the false self and experience lasting ease, joy and fulfillment in our bodies and our lives.

Contemplative Movement Series – Practice @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 20 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Process-Based Contemplative Movement 

In these classes students will learn The Process which is a framework that will help achieve deep, lasting peace and an internally sourced experience of happiness, regardless of circumstances or situation. The aim is to fully embody our experience of practice through The Process combining theory, contemplation and action so we can learn to be fully present in our bodies as they are. Students are encouraged to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete and thorough experience.

1:30 – 3PM Practice

In this class we build on the theory of The Process and learn how to apply it through the use of movement as a means to explore how the busyness of the mind drives our perception of ourselves and our lives. How we show up for practice is how we show up for our life. Through this contemplative approach to practice we begin to see ourselves and the world around us more clearly as we nurture the well spring of vitality that is always present within us.

No experience is required, however students will benefit from taking the Theory and Practice class first as an introduction to The Process. To learn more about The Process visit The Meaning Maker Movement.

Power Yoga with Jill Bartine @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 20 @ 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,

Restorative Yin Yoga with Becky Jones, RYT-500 @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 20 @ 5:30 pm – 6:15 pm

RESTORATIVE YIN YOGA with Becky Jones, RYT-500

Restorative 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.


“ I never liked Sunday evenings… weekend over, dreaded Monday morning looming… but some time ago, I discovered Becky’s Yin class and now I have something to look forward to at the close of the weekend. Becky’s classes are never repetitive… she expertly guides her yogis through a different series of yin poses each week, accompanied by soft eclectic music that really enhances the relaxing and soothing experience in mind and body. This class is a wonderful way to begin your week.”  

“Becky’s classes always have a nice flow and I leave feeling relaxed and restored for my week ahead. She is a great and caring yoga teacher!”

“ Becky takes the student through a series of stretches that are held for longer periods of time.  She pairs the stretches with music which helps me to focus on the stretch.  At the end of a session, I feel both stretched and relaxed at the same time.”


Becky Jones 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 exists!

Love Vinyasa flow but think it’s just too fast? This class is for you!

75 minutes


Meryl’s journey of learning began in 2001, at the age of eleven, when she embarked on her martial arts path within the discipline of Kung Fu. She was trained by a second generation Si Fu assisted by a female Si Fu who was trained in massage therapy. The passion and knowledge of her two teachers, combined with the traditional approach of the school, inspired Meryl’s inquiry into the mechanics of the inner body and holistic healing. Later on, Meryl added Tai Chi to her martial arts practice, which further deepened her mind-body connection. It was Meryl’s female Si Fu who inspired her to pursue holistic healing, massage therapy, and yoga as a profession by treating her throughout the years as she attended the school.

In 2009, Meryl chose Asheville School of Massage and Yoga as the launching point for her education in massage therapy by completing 675 hours of school and completing her license massage training. The Asheville School of Massage and Yoga greatly emphasized the need for student self-care through yoga practice, as well as extending self-care awareness to clients. After starting her own practice,

Meryl quickly grew an extreme passion for the combination of massage and yoga. In 2013, she traveled to Costa Rica to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Frog Lotus Yoga training program. Recently, at the beginning of 2017, she traveled to India to receive not only her 500 hour yoga teacher training  certification, but also a 50 hour yin yoga certification. After that then traveling to Spain to stay at the beautiful yoga retreat centre Suryalila for three months to continue her personal growth and deepen her

yoga knowledge. Now she’s back in Knoxville ready to share all the extensive knowledge and training to all who seek it.

Meryl has spent the last several years developing her skills by working in freelance. Her  working experiences have included practicing out of yoga studios, art festival healing sanctuaries, hospitality massage for multiple music venues, and private appointments. She currently practices integrated massages including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Thai yoga, and her personal favorite: Myofascial Release. Her multi-faceted training and experience enable Meryl to treat each client with unique and intuitive approach,   inspiring them to take an active part in their own healing.

Alignment Yoga Level (2&3): @ Balanced You Studios
Jan 22 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

Tuesday 6:00 -7:15pm Alignment Yoga Level (2&3):

This class is for intermediate students. It could be described simply as more of the above with the addition of more advanced poses, regular inversions, beginning seated meditation and beginning pranayama techniques. However, intermediate students should have a quality to their presentation of a pose. This is the progression in awareness that we seek by doing yoga. We train the mind to pay attention starting with the poses and working with precision versus sloppiness. We want “meditation in action”. We want to hold a pose with “effortless effort” allowing us the time for deep observation.. Remember that Yoga and its eight limbs is about the mind and becoming totally aware.

Here are some general guidelines from workshops and/or intensives that were geared towards intermediate students.

An intermediate student should:

  1. Be able to do an unsupported head stand. (sirsasana)
  2. Be able to kick up unassisted into a full hand stand. (adho mukha vrksasana)
  3. Be able to push up unassisted into a full back bend. (urdhva dhanurasana)

This class is taught as a series only and permission from the instructor is necessary.

Mindful Yoga with Judson @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 24 @ 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.
