April McMillan - What if I told you that you are guaranteed to feel better, stronger both mentally & physically after your YOGA practice. I'd say sign me up! I've been practicing for several years as this is a lifelong journey. The take away from yoga, for me, is to feel calm, to feel quiet within, and to feel challenged. We all need time to heal, time to grow and time to reflect upon how your practice can bring you contentment and acceptance of who you are in each new moment, each inhale & exhale. Yogis have provided feedback on my classes that includes "it was hard but fun" and "I felt peaceful - power". I AM humbled by your presence attending my classes. We remind one another to stay in the present moment. That is why it is called a gift! 200 HR RYT Yoga Alliance accredited, AAAI/ ISMA certified, teaching & connecting breath to movement since 2017

Jamie Abramo - Hightower - I am beyond thrilled to have embarked on this journey of becoming a yoga teacher! I have such a passion for practicing and now teaching such a wonderful and beneficial practice. Vinyasa flow yoga is what I practice and teach. I think its great for everyone because, depending on the teacher, it's always different, can be challenging if you want it to be, and you still get the benefits of peace and clarity. When teaching, I try to keep my classes upbeat and light hearted. Never too serious and I offer options for the students to take modifications for an added challenge or to pull back and stick to the basics while working on their own form. Through teaching, I look forward to sharing all of the benefits that yoga has to offer with more and more people.

Years later as a full-time Mom, she rediscovered yoga and was excited to get back to a regular yoga practice.

After years of battling depression and anxiety, Maria found a sense of peace and calm she had previously thought to be unattainable. It was this mind-body and spiritual connection that made Maria, after only a little more than a year of regular practice, enter into teacher training in Spring 2015. She graduated from Dana Hot Yoga's teacher training in June 2015. The training was life-changing for Maria and excited her even more to share this wonderful practice with others.
