Hatha Yoga


This class is taught by:

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

Jackie Rosenheim

Jackie Rosenheim was first introduced to yoga in 1997 while studying both dance and Pilates. She has always had a love for movement and has been a teacher of Pilates for over 10 years. Her yoga practice began with Iyengar, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and she took her first Anusara class 4 years ago.

Jackie's teaching style is in alignment with the Anusara method and she has a passion for helping students work through chronic body pain using yoga therapeutics. Her classes are a safe and empowering space for all levels of yogis and she strives to help her students expand in all areas of ones being- body, mind and heart.

Marianne Linn

Born and raised in Germany, Marianne discovered the seeds of yoga, meditation and bodywork while traveling extensively in Asia. She has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years. In 1994, she was certified with the Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Society in Austria and continued her studies in the Iyengar and Astanga Vinyasa traditions, completing the teacher-training program at the Iyengar Institute in San Francisco. Marianne has been a student of Shandor Remete for over ten years and his Shadow Yoga greatly influences her practice and teaching. Her study of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong has also deepened her awareness of and connection to the presence of the universal life force energy. Marianne’s asana teachings draw from the essential elements of many great teachers such as Shandor Remete, Ana Forest, Andre Lappa, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Doug Keller, S.N.Goenka and Adyashanti, as well as from her own experience as a Bodyworker and from her study of the Nature of Mind.

Marianne’s classes provide a supportive and light-hearted atmosphere where students are encouraged to learn to explore the harmonics of postural alignment and the connection between body, breath and mind. At the beginning of the month Marianne creates and offers a new vinyasa sequence, where one's focus on transitions, the "going in to" and "coming out of" a posture is as important as being in the posture. The practice becomes a meditation in motion. Marianne designs her classes with experienced beginners and intermediate level students in mind, although beginners and all sincere students are welcome. Marianne has been a certified Bodywork Practitioner since 1996. She offers Shiatsu, Therapeutic Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, Chi Nei Tsang, Prenatal Massage, and On-Site Chair Massage. Marianne is also available for Somatic Yoga Therapy and Private yoga coaching sessions.
