Hatha Flow


This class is taught by:

Kim LeClaire

RYT 200
 
Kim’s journey into the healing benefits of yoga began with a simple gesture at the end of a yoga class led by Libby Yokum; a soft lavender pillow placed on her forehead. It was the beginning of learning how to relax, be gentle, be present, and harness the unique ability to love ourselves completely.

 

Kim began studying and building an understanding of yoga after graduating from Plattsburgh State University with a BA in photography and ceramics. For the last 10 years she has studied alongside teachers and students at Funky Door Yoga, Laughing Lotus, ADK Yoga, Dharma Door Retreat Center and at Laughing River Yoga. In April of 2015 she completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Laughing River Yoga, where she studied along side Emily Garrett and Sofi Dillof. Kim feels that this training left no stone unturned and has given her the tools to help people connect and reconnect, emotionally, spiritually, and physically to life.

 

Kim brings a wide variety of experience to the practice of yoga. She has studied dance for 23 years at Langlois Racine Dance School and has a diverse background in dance including tap, jazz, and ballet. Alongside her love and study of movement, she also has a musical background including proficiency in piano, song, drum and percussion. Through the discipline of music and movement of the body, she has found confidence, experienced less physical pain, and discovered how to express herself fully in the world.

 

Kim continually trusts yoga’s ability to heal as it has helped her work through many situations in her own life. She is grateful to have the opportunity to share her knowledge, talents, and personal life experience with others through the practice of yoga.

 

Noelle Tedford

RYT 200
Noelle has been practicing yoga for about eight years. Yoga helped her through a particularly trying time in her life where she was told she would not regain her full mobility. After struggling with occupational therapy, a series of fortunate events brought yoga back into her life. With practice and patience, she not only regained her full mobility, but she noticed a change in my ideals and values. A light-heartedness and steadiness came with her practice and a feeling of love and healing she wished to share with others, in hopes she could help someone the way yoga and her instructor had helped her.

Noelle travelled to the mountains of Rollinsville, CO and sought out an ashram called Shoshoni. Shoshoni is one of three sister ashrams the others in Eldorado Canyon, CO and Konalani, HI. It is here where she got her 200 RYT in Shambhava yoga.
 
Shambhava Yoga is a blend of yogic philosophy, meditation, life skills and asana (physical poses). Asana is looked at in regards to anatomy and harm-reduction by utilizing safe alignment and utilization of props and modifications in postures.  
 
Since her 200-hr 21-day emersion she has gone back for two other trainings in Level 2 and Level 3 intermediate classes. She holds her trainings at the ashram sacred to her heart. She drank deep from the well and is eager to help others find their light.
 
Noelle is also a Yoga 4 Cancer certified instructor, having completed her 45 hour training with Tari Prinster in 2017.

As a holistic healer, it is in her nature to spread love and kindness. She truly believes that everyone, any shape or form, can benefit greatly from daily practice in yoga and meditation. To find peace in a world of chaos, yoga might just calm the masses. The true self is ready and waiting to be awakened.
Awaken with this warming Hatha Flow practice. Energize, balance, and find new space and freedom. This class begins slowly with a focus on the breath and eases into dynamic movement and posture explorations. The focus is on connecting movement and breath to free the body and mind. Each class includes breath work, warm-ups, physical postures that flow with the breath, free movement, relaxation, and meditation.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.
