When I think of myself as a yoga teacher, I think of how I am just like my students. Every time I teach, my students make me a better teacher by showing me the way. They are my teachers. I try my best to make sure that there is no barrier between teacher and student because we are all experiencing the yoga class together. I find it is my responsibility to provide my students with a safe space where they can respect themselves and see their infinite worth. I want to make sure that I am there for them when challenges arise or questions are asked. I want to be raw and real. I am not the kind of teacher who is poetic or uses fancy language, but I like to think that when a student leaves my class they have made a new friend. Prana Pump is a style of yoga I created and trademarked. It is yoga, HIIT, and weight training all in one class. If you just got a rush of intimidation and said “I can’t do that” in your head, you can. It’s fun, upbeat, and probably the least serious class you will ever take. We work hard, but we laugh and shake our booty’s doing it. Afterwards, we feel strong and confident. There is no other class like it. I am also a Yin Yoga teacher. Who’d-a thought someone who invented a crazy class like Prana Pump would also teach Yin Yoga?! In Yin, we don’t leave the floor. We stress the connective tissues in the body to build strength in the ligaments. It’s pure nourishment and I feel so honored that I am able to teach it. Do yourself a favor and give yourself Yin after a Prana Pump class. You’ll thank me later. I hope to see you soon in my classes. If not, I hope you find your yoga journey to be fulfilling in so many lovely ways.


Addie Jo instructs the following:
  • Yin Yoga | Basic
  • Yin yoga is a slow paced practice that focuses on the breath while surrendering, yielding, and unraveling the connective tissues in the body through long, passive holds. Yin yoga is said to loosen energy blockages and therefore increase pranic flow through the body while aiding in better organ function, increased flexibility, and calms the nervous system. Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes or more, stimulating the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and joints that normally are not reached in a more active style of asana practice.
     
    Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.
