Yin Yoga with Karen Rodgers @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Dec 11 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

This Yin practice brings the opportunity to slow down and give yourself the ultimate gift. The gift of creating space in the body and the mind that may not have been there before. 

Practice moving into stillness, perhaps one of the hardest things to do, as we are always multitasking. 

This challenging practice will leave you relaxed, energized, and mindfully at peace. 

_______________________

I started on my fitness journey 30 years ago; Body Building, Aerobics, Tennis, Personal Training, Spin, Pilates, and finally YOGA.

I accidently fell into teaching, started training in all the above disciplines, and became a certified   instructor. For yoga specifically, I have completed two 200 RYT sessions, with a strong emphasis on Hatha, Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti Yoga. I knew, even way back then, that I belong in that role.  My desire to watch and teach and help people break through and become strong and confident are my motivation.  

It is amazing to see the physical, mental and emotional shifts that people make through exercise. 

Everything I trained for before yoga, was my preparation for yoga.  Yoga finds us when we are ready. I have tried to “gently force” people into yoga (cause I know how good it is), but truly you have to let it find you. 

Those who are inflexible, need yoga to become more flexible. 

Those who are weak, need yoga to become strong.

Those who are stressed, need yoga to become relaxed. 

Hopefully we will meet each other on the mat.  I truly look forward to it.

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

RESTORATIVE YIN YOGA with Becky Maze, 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 Maze is a Knoxville native and has shown an interest in yoga since her college days. She is also a Dental Hygienist and holds a B.S. in Health Education. Her desire to know yoga’s balance intensified in 2005 as her life changed and growing pains ensued. 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 and is a Reiki Master. Her personal yoga journey has brought her into a more balanced lifestyle, which she delights in sharing with others through teaching.

Slow. Steady. Strong.

Take charge of Monday with a rejuvenating yoga class that guides you on a mental and physical journey through slow, calming flows and inspiring poses to support you for the rest of the week.

Explore your inner warrior, work to your own personal edge, be kind and gentle to yourself along the way, and ultimately discover increased strength, flexibility and resilience in both body and mind. This class is all about being true to yourself, practicing yoga with purpose, cultivating mindfulness. If you breathe, you qualify. Appropriate for all levels.


 

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.

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.

Wed
Yin Yoga with Karen Rodgers @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Jan 15 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

This Yin practice brings the opportunity to slow down and give yourself the ultimate gift. The gift of creating space in the body and the mind that may not have been there before. 

Practice moving into stillness, perhaps one of the hardest things to do, as we are always multitasking. 

This challenging practice will leave you relaxed, energized, and mindfully at peace.

I started on my fitness journey 30 years ago; Body Building, Aerobics, Tennis, Personal Training, Spin, Pilates, and finally YOGA.

I accidently fell into teaching, started training in all the above disciplines, and became a certified   instructor. For yoga specifically, I have completed two 200 RYT sessions, with a strong emphasis on Hatha, Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti Yoga. I knew, even way back then, that I belong in that role.  My desire to watch and teach and help people break through and become strong and confident are my motivation.  

It is amazing to see the physical, mental and emotional shifts that people make through exercise. 

Everything I trained for before yoga, was my preparation for yoga.  Yoga finds us when we are ready. I have tried to “gently force” people into yoga (cause I know how good it is), but truly you have to let it find you. 

Those who are inflexible, need yoga to become more flexible. 

Those who are weak, need yoga to become strong.

Those who are stressed, need yoga to become relaxed. 

Hopefully we will meet each other on the mat.  I truly look forward to it.
