Natalie is a great yoga instructor. She is enthusiastic and creative and each class is different. She really listens to her students and caters things to their needs.
I never thought yoga was for me until I took Samantha's class. She's an amazing instructor and makes yoga very enjoyable!
When I began yoga teacher training, I had no intention of becoming a yoga teacher. I stepped into teacher training with hopes to deepen my practice and understand myself a little bit better with my relationship to my mind and body. Elaina held a safe space for me, knowing and respecting my intentions; rather than edging me toward teaching yoga by method of intimidation, "pushing me out of my comfort zone," or anything that would stray from empathetic listening, she offered me opportunities to test my comfort zone in other ways that I was more eager to experiment with (sharing vulnerable feelings, experiencing intense sensations in a yoga posture, extended meditation lengths, etc.). I insist that this form of compassionate and loving teaching is why I've found the teacher in myself. There is no better way to describe the teacher and facilitator in Elaina than as a sponge: when she teaches a yoga class or teaches passionate students to become yoga teachers, she comes to that space both empty and porous, ready to feel, absorb and TRULY hold all of the emotions that are sent in all directions. She is a reflective medium. When she has done her work with you, whether that be through a sweaty hour of hot vinyasa or a full 8-hour-long day of yogic lecture, happy tears, frustrated tears, thoughts on thoughts on thoughts; whatever it may be, you feel physically lighter as Elaina has grown by soaking up all that you were given the space to release. The most beautiful thing about this type of healer is that by simply wringing out the sponge of her soul, she can make more space to listen again, absorbing everything but being weighed down by nothing. This encourages her students to not only open their soul and release all that is being felt, but to do the same for others once their own space is so vast and porous. I have found the space to become a teacher, myself, because of the space she has held for me.
I have been taking classes with Meera for 3 years. Excellent instructor! Very sensitive to different body types and physical differences. Good at listening and observing students to help them get the most they can from yoga. Easy to follow poses, flows and breathing techniques. Wonderful class for all levels of students!
Bonnie doesn't do anything half way...which means she brings her all to table (or mat, that is!) instructing, encouraging, giving grace, coaching and cheerleading me to grow in my practice. She has made yoga attainable for me, all the while stretching me beyond my comfort zones. She is an absolute delight to work with and brings Light wherever she goes!
I am a 200-hour registered yoga teacher and received my training through Prairie Yoga Training program at Cascade Yoga Studio in Grand Rapids, MI. I currently teach yoga at various studios in the Grand Rapids area and truly enjoy teaching private lessons for beginner and advanced students. I also have a Thai bodywork certificate and am continuing to advance my knowledge in this area. Thai bodywork is a whole body treatment traditionally given on a floor mat with the client fully clothed. Thai bodywork combines passive stretching and movement of joints with touch techniques along the energy meridians. A Thai bodywork practitioner (such as myself) is sensitive to the condition of each person and delivers a graceful, nurturing and interactive treatment that uses conscious touch, breathing and rhythm. Thai bodywork achieves a therapeutic effect without harsh physical force and is safe and effective for most people. A complete Thai Bodywork experience uses rhythmic touch as well as cross-fiber stroking of the muscles and soft tissues of the body delivered in a variety of postures and positions. The effect is a deep relaxation and awareness of the bodys condition. I have a true passion for what I do and love to share it with others. My clients always feel relief and leave stress free from any one of my private lessons or Thai massages.

I offer private and/or group yoga lessons catered to what you want/need. I provide lessons in vinyasa, ashtanga, yoga for runners/triathletes, and gentle yoga. I custom "build" each class based on your personal goals. You don't have to be flexible to practice yoga. You have to start somewhere; the flexibility will come later. I have been teaching at various places in the Grand Rapids area since 2012. I currently teach at The Studio Yoga in Kentwood, but I also provide at-home, personal yoga lessons to help those who may have busy schedules, are curious about yoga, or think a traditional yoga class isn't their "thing."

I am an RYT certified yoga instructor. I can teach many levels in one class. What makes my instruction different is the Pure Movement Therapy cert. It has taught me how to recognize movement that could be potentially damaging from repetitive use. Pure Movement is working from a place of breath and ease and building strength from that place. I'm also focusing on the three major joints: hips, shoulder girdles, and knees. Through this movement, you become of aware of the compensation you are doing instead of using the joint or muscle we were meant to use. It is full of wonderful "aha!" moments. You will be amazed at how quickly you become pain-free and strong while working with ease in your range of motion. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to study under Susi Hately's Functional Synergy. My studio is small, so there are lots of one-on-one, and that's important when you are learning and practicing yoga. I do believe "we are better together".
