Jenny

Jenny Mueller is a certified yoga teacher who has been teaching full and part-time for 13 years and studying yoga for sixteen years. Although the majority and foundation of her training is in the Iyengar tradition, Jenny has also studied Insight Yoga (a blend of yin, flow yoga, and meditation) with Sarah Powers, and graduated in 2009 from Spirit Rock Meditation Center’s Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training. Jenny’s classes are creative, non-competitive, empowering and restorative. They incorporate: strong asana (postures) to create strength and flexibility in the body and mind; yin postures to stimulate and circulate energy through the chakras and meridians of the body; restorative asana to nourish the body and mind in rest and refresh the nervous system; pranayama (breath work) to rejuvenate energy and cultivate focus; seated meditation to foster concentration, mindfulness, and insight; poetry for inspiration and sustenance in the practice Jenny considers yoga practice and teaching to be the primary spiritual exercises that nourish and support the larger spiritual practice of her life. She has found yoga and meditation to be essential to her own physical, psychological, and emotional maturity and well-being, as well as the foundation of her spiritual life journey.

 This hour class will focus on the breath and the ability to relax into the flow of the asanas. This meditative flow will ensure a connection with body, mind and Spirit to deliver healing on many levels. Mally is the instructor and brings a blend of Ashtanga background through verbiage and the energetics of Kundalini training to a mixture of Hatha.

Hatha Gong w/ Amy @ 7 Centers Yoga Arts
Nov 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Hatha Gong – Hatha yoga postures are taught with the addition of precise vibrations generated by a live gong. This combination of posture and vibration enhances the meditative and transformational quality of the class. Hatha-Gong™ is a beautiful practice that will help both new and experienced students find an additional – and perhaps previously unexplored – layer in their conventional practice of postures.

  • Amy Frasard discovered yoga, close to 20 years ago, after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. It was at this time that she began to understand the deep connection between the spiritual and physical body and the ability we all have to heal ourselves.  Amy soon began to notice that she was developing a deep calm and peacefulness she began to carry with her off the mat.  This new awareness has enabled her to approach her illness with new eyes and be able to share these discoveries with her students.

This was the beginning of a lifetime journey that has led her to receive her 800 hour certification at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Yoga Therapy.  Amy is a Certified Kids Instructor, a Certified Hatha Gong Master and she has taught in schools, festivals, drug treatment centers and many community centers throughout the state of Arizona. She is also an Official Community Partner with the Cactus-Pine Girl Scouts of Arizona.

Amy believes that yoga should be accessible to everyone and therefore encourages her students to find peace and acceptance for themselves, on and off their mats.  Students find they are offered the opportunity to choose the level of practice they need while being guided to connect with their inner wisdom.

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.

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.
