Unheated All Levels Flow to Music


This class is taught by:

Brittney Burgess

Yoga has the powerful ability to create transformation. My yoga practice has supported me through some of the most challenging and the most joyful times in my life, and continues to be a beautiful reminder to love myself, challenge myself and take care of myself - a message I always seek to share with my students.
 

With a background in psychotherapy and sport psychology, I strongly believe that the mind-body connection is present at all times, and that every person has tremendous potential within themselves. Yoga has filled me with a self-acceptance, intuitive listening and the ability to use my breath wherever I am. As a teacher, I provide the dynamic tools that will help students on a journey to grow, heal, empower and ultimately transform not only their bodies, but their lives!

 

I believe in creating a community of joy and love, and I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to do this as both teacher and student through this transformative practice!

Jenna Hussey

A dedicated student of yoga for over seventeen years, Jenna began instructing classes in 2007. Her experience in the field of massage therapy profoundly informs her instruction of yoga postures and conversely, her yoga practice continues to evolve her understanding and awareness of body mechanics and self care.

Jenna has extensive experience working with beginners. Specializing in classes that focus on foundational yoga postures and principles, she has led countless introductory classes and workshops throughout her teaching career. She has a welcoming spirit and the ability to structure lessons so that newer students feel included and successful.

In addition, Jenna is a trained and experienced practitioner of TM and traditional forms of mantra meditation, and is also a long-time student of Advaita Vedanta and Indian philosophy. All this study and experience lends itself beautifully to her commitment to supporting herself and others in managing stress and finding connection, comfort, ease and freedom in both body and mind.

Amanda Vallimont

I am a Black Crow-bred yogi. I stumbled into my first yoga class when BCY first opened and it has been a beautiful relationship ever since. Yoga helps me stay grounded and real. It connects me to what is important as well as challenges me to step out of my comfort zone. I love the challenging physical asana side of yoga as well as the spiritual practice. Both help me to carry my practice off the mat.

The teachers at BCY inspired me so much that I decided to go for my certification and trained with Rolf Gates, fulfilling my 200 hour certification. I teach a strong, grounded practice that allows you to be yourself and tap into something deeper. I encourage my students to meet their minds and bodies with compassion and allow the effects of yoga to transform them slowly.

When I'm not teaching yoga, I teach high school theology and also run a school Yoga Club.

Anushka Arellano

I grew up in India where both my grandparents taught yoga for a living. Yoga in a sense was a strong part of my family life yet I did not take it seriously as a practice until many years later when I moved to the US. Here I rediscovered yoga in the context of trying to find a more balanced and healthy life and to cope with daily stresses.

I completed my 200 hour Yogaworks certification with Natasha Rizopolous in 2012. Since then I have practiced yoga passionately and have taught at my work and at Black Crow.

My classes combine mindfulness with a strong physical practice. My intention as a teacher is to empower students to find their own approach to yoga and to recognize each one's individuality. I am grateful to be able to share my love of yoga with others as I continue on this journey as a student myself. I also spend a lot of time obsessing over playlists for my classes as I think music is an important part of the experience of a yoga class. These days in my class you might find yourself flowing to tunes by Lindsey Sterling, Sia or Lana del Rey :)

Vinyasa Flow yoga is a vigorous, athletic style of yoga. We focus on connecting breath to movement through a continuous sequence of postures. We stretch and strengthen our body, mind, and spirit!

The studio is heated to approximately 80 degrees. It will feel comfortably warm, allowing you to safely stretch deeply, and you'll sweat from the athletic nature of the yoga. You'll leave feeling refreshed and renewed.

Each class is a unique experience. Our teachers have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Classes will vary to reflect the unique style and personality of each teacher. That's the beauty of flow yoga!

Class is appropriate for all levels of experience and beginners are always welcome. If you are new to yoga or have an injury or limitation, please let the teacher know so he/she can offer modifications and give you extra support.
