Slow Flow Yoga w/ Rachel @ 7 Centers Yoga Arts
Oct 2 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

Slow Flow Yoga – A slowed down version of Vinyasa Flow with emphasis on continuous movement and coordination of breath.

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!

A love affair with the practice began and in October of 2007, she graduated from 7 Centers Arts in order to pursue teaching. Not able to get her experience out of her heart, Katie moved to Sedona in order to teach at the Center. She has been on staff since September of 2008 teaching Hatha, Yin, Insight and Restorative Yoga.  Katie has also been teaching at a local world renowned resort since 2008 where she is constantly asked to improvise.  Teaching people from all over the world with different skill sets, physical limitations, mind sets and expectations has probably been her greatest learning experience. She continues to self educate in the study of yoga and finds herself most drawn to the meditative and therapeutic qualities of the practice. She exudes a genuine interest and consideration for her students and often brings a quirky sense of humor. She feels honored to teach at the Center and is thankful each and every day for her 7 Centers family.

Slow Flow Yoga w/ Sean @ 7 Centers Yoga Arts

Sean Neesley head shot IMG_2104This Slow Flow Yogic practice is based on the breath carrying one through the asanas. This hour allows one to explore the postures with depth, discovering what is available to you. All levels are welcome as this hour class introduces a yogic practice based on the 8 limbs of yoga.

Sean Neesley was first introduced to yoga in Sedona in 2003 and further delved into its practice and philosophy as a student of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating, he surrendered to the spontaneity of travel and life abroad in New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia where his understanding of yoga and meditation deepened through experience with various teachers. Sean returned to his childhood home of Sedona in 2012, has since completed the Hatha and Yoga Therapy Teacher Training programs at 7 Centers and has increasingly committed himself to the integration, exploration and application of yogic philosophy to all aspects of life.  As a teacher, Sean brings his sense of adventure to the practice of yoga as well as a passion for exploring the internal experience as thoroughly as the external world.

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.
