Power Vinyasa | Intermediate


This class is taught by:

Alyssa Winfield

I was first drawn to yoga in 2007 when I saw my friend hold a flawless scorpion pose. Coming from a dancing background, I was immediately hooked on the physicality and acrobatic aspects of the asana practice. It wasn’t long after starting my yoga journey that I realized how much yoga went beyond the physical postures. Every day I am amazed how yoga has transformed every aspect of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I truly believe that if every person practiced yoga, the world would be drastically different. With this belief, and my desire to share my passion for yoga, I completed my 200-hour teacher training from Asheville Yoga Center in 2016 and am currently working on my 300-hour teacher training at Longwave Yoga. As an instructor, I try to bring joy and laughter to every class and encourage my students to try new and challenging things both on and off the mat. My mantra: Do the yoga - Be happy - Make the world a better place.

Brittany Roy

”Through yoga, you begin to learn to accept life as it comes and realize that every breath is a gift and a new opportunity to create your own existence and happiness!” Taking a yoga class here and there, it wasn’t until a difficult life transition that Brittany fell in love with the practice. Never really feeling a strong urge toward any profession, one night after a yoga class, a strong sense of passion washed over her…“I want to be a yoga teacher!” About a year later, Brittany completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge, specializing in power vinyasa. “When I decided I wanted to teach yoga, the decision was made and I didn’t even flirt with the idea of, ‘What if it doesn’t work out?’ There was no question. I decided this was my path and the Universe delivered!” Brittany started teaching immediately after her training. Her intention in each class is to share the same joy and beauty that yoga has brought to her life, just as her teachers share with her. “There is no greater gift than to watch your students transform themselves right before your eyes.” Believing that happiness and love are the foundations for living a full life…you can expect a fun, light-hearted (and powerful) flow in Brittany’s classes. Brittany is also the studio manager of Longwave Yoga.

Angela David

Angela took her first yoga class in 2011 while recovering from an injury. As a nurse, she knew the importance of maintaining strength and flexibility during her recovery, so she thought she would give yoga a try. "I soon began to enjoy the many physical benefits, and became dedicated to a regular practice. In addition to physical injury, at this time I was also dealing with some significant anxiety and fear. Like many, I initially approached my practice as a workout, a form of exercise, but I soon began to notice a change in my emotional well being. This shift in perspective led me to a deeper exploration of the mind body connection that is yoga. As I learned to link the movements and sensations of the body with the mind and breath, I discovered how to truly be present in the moment. The practice of yoga has taught me to journey inward and examine my own true nature, allowing me to see the light within myself and others, leading me to an abundance of joy and freedom in my life off the mat.” Eager to share the gift of yoga with others, Angela became Yoga Alliance Certified upon completion of the 200 hour Teacher Training Program at Longwave Yoga in May 2015. "Yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, physical ability, or life stage. I look forward to sharing this beautiful, life changing practice with my students." Angela is currently completing the Longwave Yoga 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
Power Vinyasa Yoga uses mixed sequencing to build strength and flexibility through a vigorous flow. By moving at a quicker pace and linking together yoga postures through breath awareness and combining holds, core work, and balances, one will find this practice both challenging and transformative.
 
The intermediate class is sequenced for those with an established yoga practice of one year or more (or coming from another discipline that highlights body awareness and mechanics).
