Instructors

Chandra White, BA, NBC-HWC, E-RYT 500, Coach and Mindfulness Trainer

Chandra’s understanding of the healing power of yoga comes from both personal experience and almost two decades of working with students in classes and at centers for healing. Trained as a 500-hour experienced yoga teacher, Chandra has enhanced her education with Health Coach and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training at Duke University’s Center for Integrative Health and with specialties in yoga for trauma and addiction, yin yoga, energy psychology, prenatal and flow yoga. The practice of yoga – including breathwork and mindfulness – are what helps to anchor and expand oneself so that riding the waves of life can be as rewarding and inspiring as possible.

Karla Benoit, E-RYT 500, Physiotherapist, Meditation Teacher

It was when Karla moved to India when she fell in love with the culture, history and traditions of hatha yoga. Trained in India, Karla’s repertoire also includes pre- and post-natal yoga, yin yoga, yoga nidra, advanced breathwork and meditation training.  Karla has also trained in yoga for seniors and those with health challenges such as high blood pressure or hip mobility.  Karla is a trained physiotherapist who specialized in dysfunctions of the spine.  Her Shiatsu training lends itself to her deep understanding of the energy (chi) of the body.  Karla understands how yoga can be helpful for students who want to maintain and restore balance, mobility and motor function to their lives.

Britney Dunnebacke, BA, HWC, Yoga Teacher, Health Coach

Britney is a Kaiut yoga teacher, trained under Francisco Kaiut, creator of The Method®.  A yoga practitioner for over a decade, it was the Kaiut style that inspired her to teacher training.  In addition to teaching Kaiut yoga, Britney is a health and wellness coach, trained through Emory University.  She completed Cognitive Based Compassion Training in Atlanta.  Britney’s desire is to partner with people to help them achieve their vision for a healthy lifestyle, while cultivating compassion and stress resilience for themselves.  Her experience traveling to Japan, France, Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Thailand, and Italy opened her awareness to how most of us are looking for the same things: to be happy and to be healthy.

Courses

Kaiut Yoga

Kaiut yoga was designed to relieve the challenges of our sitting lifestyle, and even to counter the effects of aging. Chandra and Britney loved the yoga style so much they had to be trained by Francisco Kaiut himself. By experiencing the effects of Kaiut personally, and hearing testimonials from other students of Kaiut, Chandra and Britney quickly recognized the power of this form of yoga to improve mobility and restore the body’s structure and function. The Method® uses gravity, focus on joint health, and the body’s healing power to counter the restrictions that build over time.  Freedom of movement can be yours.  Sign up for a Kaiut class today.

Hatha Yoga

A steady practice based on classical yoga teachings to reveal the ancient wisdom for human development.  Traditional postures (asana), repeated words (mantras) and breathwork (pranayama) are used with accurate alignment building strength, stamina, flexibility and balance.  Sun salutations with the introduction of twists, hand balances, revolving standing poses and inversions are included.  Suitable but potentially challenging for all levels as the class can be taken easily or deeply as the practitioner’s body requires that day.

Yoga Flow

Flow classes offer the exploration of movement and breath, with some postures held a little longer.  With a perfect balance of effort and ease, attending class lets the student return to his or her center.  As the student glides through postures and explores the cues for kinesthetic refinements from the teacher, the practice unfolds into a fully embodied experience on the mat.  With instructions for all levels of students, the class can be as challenging or as restorative as the student desires.  Join a yoga flow class to experience mindful movement on the mat.

Balanced Being Yoga

Finding and maintaining balance in the body, the breath and the mind are at the center of this class.  One of the motor fitness components along with agility and coordination, balance can help with maintaining vitality and functional daily living.  Balancing postures are important to do, but the key to balance is to master transitions and to develop an inside-out approach.  This inside out approach comes from the body and the mind.  An approachable class suitable for all levels.  Join in to foster your inner Balanced Being.

Balanced Being Yoga

Yoga 12

Yoga 12 was designed to integrate the 12 steps and other principles of recovery into a moving meditation. Attending class can help the student to “Let Go and Let God”. It’s a combination of yoga asana (postures), breathwork and mindfulness for those in recovery or those in relationship with someone who is. Proceeds from this class go toward the support of women’s recovery homes. Join the class for flow and fellowship.
