Alignment Hatha


This class is taught by:

Claire Stetina

Claire discovered yoga after a car accident left her with debilitating injuries and pain. The first yoga class she stepped into changed the course of her life, yoga and meditation gave her the power to take her healing into her own hands. Many years later, Claire is humbled to have found this path. Yoga is not just a practice, but a lifestyle.

Claire is an innovative yoga instructor whose classes are a balance of mindful flow, pranayama (breath work), and accessible meditation techniques. Her classes are challenging and playful...as she draws from many traditions. She teaches alignment based, creative flow classes with the intent to cultivate a deeper realtionship with the breath, body and energy.

Claire has taught over 2,000 hours of public classes and workshops. She has studied with many teachers in many lineages, and is known to blend elements of Anusara, Iyengar, alignment therapeutics, Bhakti, Baptiste and Shambava Hatha yoga into her classes. Each class draws upon Claire's extensive practical knowledge of human anatomy and self-care practices towards the goal of optimal health and balance. Her classes are often thematic, and aim to integrate both subtle and nuanced alignment cues with breath awareness allowing for a deeper state of body awareness. Her mission is to deliver a safe, creative and progressive space for yogis to grow and come into their power. For more info visit: www.clairestetina.com

Robyn Engel

Robyn is a yogini, mother, dancer, artist and lover. Living in Pacifica she can see the Pacific Ocean as she brews tea and washes dishes. From this idyllic spot she spends time with her young son playing, painting and cooking and practicing yoga. The foundation of yoga in her life has led her to be more patient, compassionate, joyful and kind.
Her classes empower people to move with intention and attention. Leading fluid vinyasa and infusing the poses with mindful alignment and sequencing, Robyn creates a class well balanced between the practical and the philosophical. Using the time on the mat to wake up and refuel the self, she creates her classes with the experience she gets in her own daily practice of Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness, as well as all the knowledge she has gleaned from her teachers: Harvey Deutch, Rusty Wells, Elise Lorimer, Janet Stone, Darren Main, Stephanie Snyder, Elena Brower and Jane Austin.
Robyn has been a student of yoga since 1997. Steeped in 12 years of practice before the need to pass it along became strong and she participated in her first teacher training. Her hunger to know more and to serve her students keeps her forever a student. She has studied in depth vinyasa, bhakti, prenatal/postnatal, and therapeutic yoga.
 

Tierra Tanner

Tierra’s curiosity for yoga and meditation was sparked by reading a book on astral travel and self-induced OBE. As her curiosity for esoteric philosophy grew, it became apparent that her life path was to be one immersed in spirituality. One day Tierra and a friend were looking through a local magazine and found an advertisement for yoga teacher training. Having dabbled in yoga at home,Tierra found that it fed not only her desire for spiritual growth, but the need for physical exertion, cultivated by a life time as a dancer. At that moment, Tierra's whole world brightened up; she had found her dharma. Since beginning to teach, Tierra has grown in all aspects of life. Teaching yoga has challenged Tierra to never be afraid of being herself, as well as serving as a vessel to share her innate love and kindness with others. Apart from teaching Vinyasa, Bikram Yoga, and Yin Yoga, Tierra specializes in Chair Yoga for senior citizens as well as Office Yoga for workplaces. Complimenting the physical practice of yoga, Tierra also practices Kriya Yoga and is a certified Reiki healer. These are, but the first doors opened for her in what she hopes to be a long and illustrious career of aiding humanity through deeper understanding of: the mind, body, spirit connection.

David Oliphant

After working in the corporate world of hospitality, travel and entertainment for most of his adult life, a reality came over David that while he was living a wonderful and exciting life, he was doing little to touch, support and be of service to others. A calling he always "felt", but didn't fully understand how to share until he found yoga (David actually believes that yoga found him)! Of course, this awareness changed his own journey as well. Having been an endurance athlete and taking part in triathlons, marathons and endurance races, David is very aware of how ones body acts and reacts as well as the potential for injures as it relates to sports. His classes focus on the wellness of the muscles, injury care and prevention and syncing up the breath, heart and mind to allow for stillness.

With awareness comes change and soon David made the shift from "Wall Street to Wellness", receiving his 200 hour Hatha Yoga Certification in 2006. His calling to wellness continues to expand and David now holds additional certifications in Thai Yoga Bodywork and Reiki Energy Healing. To read more about David visit www.yogawithdavid.com
