Hatha Yoga w/ Marnie @ 7 Centers Yoga Arts
Oct 20 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Hatha Yoga – A balanced workout of classical poses, breath work and meditation.

IMG_2538Marnie Mills discovered yoga in 1990 while taking a World Religions college class in Saint Louis, Missouri. When the curriculum ventured into eastern theology, her professor taught a yoga class as an introduction. The effect of the class was so profound on her body, particularly her mind, that she immediately sought out more yoga and found Big Bend Yoga and her formative teachers. Through Big Bend, she studied with Rodney Yee, Erich Schiffmann, Shiva Rae, and Judith Lasater among others. In 2002 she became a certified teacher with Erich Schiffmann through the Santa Barbara Yoga Center, California. In 2005, she studied Kriya Yoga under Pricilla Potter, Swami Maha-tarananda, at Yoga Connection in Tucson, Arizona and became a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. Her practice is rooted in Kriya Yoga principals and she teaches Freedom Style Yoga, which emphasizes The Oneness that all lineages lead to.

IMG_3913Rachel Jackson has been studying and practicing yoga for 14 years and teaching for the past 8. Her main teaching styles include Slow Flow Vinyasa, Yin Meridian Meditation, and Hatha Yoga. Her interest in yoga began at age 13 practicing Vinyasa Yoga of the Jivamukti Lineage. As her practice deepened she began practicing Yin Meridian Meditation to balance out her vigorous vinyasa practice. In 2006 she entered into the ashram of 7 Centers Yoga School in Sedona, AZ for her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. It was here she gained background in Kundalini yoga, Hatha Yoga, and the Shatkarmas (yogic cleanses) through the lineage of Swami Satyananda Saraswati. It was also here where she learned the basics of Ayurveda for supporting the yogic lifestyle. Since then, she’s gone on to study with Rama Jyoti Vernon in applying the Yoga Sutras according to Patanjali, and with Ruth Hartung (Sraddhasagar) in Therapeutic approaches to yoga. After her yoga teacher training, Rachel became a Licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in Traditional Thai massage, Shiatsu, and Reflexology. Whether it is through yoga or massage, Rachel aims to inspire everyone she meets to plant the seed for a positive change in their lives, to follow their dreams towards a happier and healthier life!
