Basics Flow


This class is taught by:

Kara Lough

Kara Lough is a certified yoga teacher 200E-RYT - Vinyasa Yoga “Take hold of your own life. See that the whole existence is celebrating. These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious. The rivers and the oceans are wild, and everywhere there is fun, everywhere there is joy and delight. Watch existence, listen to the existence and become part of it.” ~ Osho
 
Kara believes that yoga is for everybody, regardless of age or ability level. She teaches as an extension of her own practice, and is fascinated with the power of the body and mind to heal itself through breath, meditation, and movement.
 
Kara became a student of yoga in 2000 and has been blessed to study under knowledgeable, encouraging teachers. She completed her teacher-training ‘Ashtanga/Hatha’ with Laurel Hodory at It’s Yoga in Columbus in 2008. Kara provides easy-to-follow instructions in a fun and safe atmosphere, encouraging students to strive toward their potential while honoring their current boundaries.
 
She teaches to all levels, from beginner/basic to level 2. ~For Kara, Yoga is a joyful and SWEET practice. Having been a Pastry Chef for 16 years, she knows that yoga is 'the icing on the cake'.

Shannon Hennerfeind

Shannon began practicing yoga nearly 20 years ago. After several stops and starts, she found her way back to yoga for good after a high-risk twin pregnancy. After devoting her energy to her family she recognized the need for self-care. She realized that a daily yoga practice allowed her become a more balanced and complete individual. What started as a way to get fit became a way of life.
 

On the urging from one of her own teachers to expand her practice further, Shannon completed her RYT 200 certification in 2016. Shannon draws influence from many different styles of yoga, from Ashtanga to Yin, but believes that attention to breath is the tie that binds all yoga styles. From the breath, she feels that each student can happily and healthfully reach his or her potential, on the mat and off. She enjoys weaving the stories of traditional yogic philosophy with relatable, current themes. It's Shannon's goal to give each student a taste of the clarity that yoga has brought to her.

Holly Booth

Holly is a recent graduate of PAI’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program! Her journey with yoga started 8 years ago when she was forced to slow down due to injuries. These injuries eventually led to chronic pain. Through a dedicated practice, Holly started to discover the benefits of “Breath with Movement.” Even though there were days she would show up on her mat being physically limited, she found the breath and motivation to be very healing. She truly attributes yoga, especially the breath, with helping her accept her body for what it is and appreciates her body for what it can do vs. what it cannot.

 

Now sitting in the seat of the teacher, Holly looks forward to watching others experience their own personal journey with yoga.

 

When Holly is not practicing or teaching yoga, you will find her at the Football Field, Hockey Rink, or Baseball Diamond.

Sarah Buczek

Sarah Buczek is a certified Yoga, TRX and Cycle instructor. For two years, Sarah has taught a variety of classes, catering to both new and veteran participants centralized in the Columbus area. Throughout her teaching, Sarah has also hosted workshops for those interested in inviting Inversions and Arm Balances into their fitness routines. Additionally, Sarah has managed the Mind/Body Department for The Ohio State University’s Group Fitness Program as both and Undergraduate and Graduate. Sarah received a BA from The Ohio State University in December of 2016. Her fitness training began at a young age – following in her mother’s footsteps who taught aerobics for eight years - and over the last four years Sarah has studied from notable Instructors and Master Trainers, such as Chrissy Carter and Doris Thews. Sarah is a spirited New Englander who believes fitness should not only enlighten and inspire one’s life, but it should also connect the mind with the body to achieve health, harmony and bliss.

Sam Sharkey

Sam first discovered yoga as a means to relieve running and cycling injuries, but her practice has become internal over the last three years, radically altering her perceptions of both the world at large and her own self worth. As she has journeyed from the outside inward, her experiences have brought her the knowledge that a little external work can lead to big internal changes. She explored this idea via a trek through Australia and India in 2015-2016 that culminated in a teacher-training course at Samyak Yoga in Mysore, India, where she was certified as a 200hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) through Yoga Alliance. She’s delighted to return to her hometown and share with others the opportunity to do their own work at their own pace, just as she does in her own practice. Her focus is on anatomical alignment, responding to the individual needs of the body (particularly for athletes), and breath as a tool for meditative concentration.

Olga O'Neil

Olga O’Neil is a certified yoga instructor. Originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, Olga holds a Bachelors Degree in Communication Arts from the Ohio State University. After graduating from OSU she worked for six years as a graphic designer in the corporate world. Olga discovered that sitting in front of a computer all day wasn’t in her genes. So she took yoga teacher training and has been teaching ever since.
 
Olga understands that we are not designed to sit all day at a desk or in our car or in front of a TV. She aspires to show her students ways to recover from the sedentary lives many of us lead. She will show you how yoga poses will make you stronger, help you regain your flexibility and improve your balance. And maybe reduce some stress.
 
Olga enjoys teaching accomplished yoga students as well as first timers. She looks forward to seeing new yogis improve each week and eventually become hooked on how yoga makes them feel.
 
When not teaching, Olga can be found bike riding or working her garden of tomatoes, cucumbers, and other healthy green things. Bring your tired body and be prepared to be smiling at the end of her class.
An inviting and inspiring class for the new student to gain a solid foundation of yoga poses, healthy alignment, and yogic breath. This class is suitable for beginners or students at other levels interested in revisiting the basics. Room temperature is set at 75 degrees.
