Flow Basics

This class is taught by:

Jamie Pilloff

Jamie started working at the studio in August 2011 after being a stay-at-home mom for 15 years. She began her practice at Awakened Yoga in January 2011 and decided to join the team after Grace posed the question: “Do you want to work barefoot?” Upon hearing that question, Jamie jumped at the chance to discover her love of people, yoga and retail. She has lived in the Sugar Land/Missouri City area for over 25 years and is married with two kids in college. Jamie serves an instructor & front desk guru.   She loves sharing her love of yoga and chatting with clients.

Aline Houston

Aline is a spirited teacher who was initially drawn to yoga to find her breath and found it to be completely transforming! She feels deeply that changing the way we breath can be life changing and life altering. Aline has specialized yoga certifications in Vinyasa yoga, Yin Yoga, Stand Up Paddle board Yoga, Advanced Ana Forrest training, and Functional Yoga Anatomy. Having discovered an intense passion for healing touch, she is also certified in Thai yoga Bodywork and is an Advanced Reiki III practitioner. She loves teaching Vinyasa flow and incorporates multiple lineages of yoga in designing a creative and inspiring class. You can expect sankalpa (intention) with a little bit of playfulness mixed in. She has studied with and has been inspired by many teachers and considers us all teachers. Aline is proud to serve the Houston community monthly as an Ambassador to the Breakfast Yoga Club.

Her passion is to help others find their own passions in life by spreading love and inspiration. It is her deepest desire that you are challenged and leave class or a session changed, and that change brings you more joy. Whether you are looking for a physically challenging yoga class or a real opportunity to go within yourself and heal your soul through other modalities, Aline provides the environment to accomplish whatever it is you seek. She continues to study and learn by attending various trainings to develop her skills in healing modalities.

Bea Porter

Bea Porter is a mother of three girls, coffee addict and self-proclaimed foodie. She originally registered for Yoga teacher training so she could learn more advanced poses. She didn't know then how much of a life change it would be for her.

Through yoga teacher training and her practice at Awakened, she realized that yoga is about more than just the poses. She grew as a person and made significant life changes that led her to become more confident and make the leap from employee to business owner managing social media!

Bea received her 200-hour yoga certification in March of 2018 from Awakened Yoga. She still enjoys getting into new and advanced poses but has found so much more from your daily yoga practice and meditation.

Bea enjoys balancing poses, will avoid chair pose when possible and is a big fan of using blocks! She has a passion for partner yoga and loves the connection that comes when practicing next to someone.

Heather Hutson

Growing up in the small town of Needville, Tx, Heather was first introduced to yoga by a Denise Austin DVD. She didn't know what chatarunga meant, but knew it was fun to say. Being an athlete most of her life, she found the space to be, breath, and move in harmony with her body a wonderful yet scary change from the performance based activities. Heather's goal in teaching is to create a clear non-judgmental space for her students to tune in, breath deep, and move with gratitude and acceptance. Her passion for correct alignment, and creative sequences shines in all of her classes.
She started her practice at Awakened Yoga in 2014. After about a month of feeling awkward, she settled into this beautiful love story with her body, mind, and soul. Fine tuned focus, tension and pain relief, easier breathing, blossoming self love, and most of all space to create her best self all came into the picture.
After about a year of practicing at AY, Heather enjoyed the practice, atmosphere and students so much, she started working the front desk on the side for funsies. She then went on to finish her 200 HR R-YTT in early 2017 at Awakened Yoga Studio, where she enjoys giving back the goodness that has been received through this Divine practice.

Now Heather is the happy manager of the studio.
She encourages staying in tune with your inner drum, letting yoga meet you where you are at, and together forming a harmonious song.

Brynn Scally

Brynn Scally received her 200-hour yoga certification in 2012 through Awakened Yoga. Brynn teaches a dynamic, rhythmic flow that emphasizes tapping into individual feelings and sensations and bringing students inward to challenge personal boundaries and limiting beliefs. She has taken workshops from Seane Corn, Bryan Kest, Ana Forest, Christina Sell and finished the Baptiste Art of Assisting program in 2014. She lives in Sugar Land with her husband of almost 20 years, two girls and two dogs.

Sadie Bund

Sadie first began practicing yoga in 2008 at her community gym, she went for mostly a physical workout and some needed 'me' time after the birth of her second child. What actually transpired from this introduction (besides being able to fit into her pre-pregnancy clothes and a short break from the daily demands of parenthood) was an awakened sense of 'self' and a new understanding of the 'mind-body-spirit connection'.

When Sadie is off the mat you'll find her spending time with her high school love- married close to 20 years & their 2 amazing boys. She is more invigorated than ever to maintain a balanced, active & healthy lifestyle- yoga reinforces that mantra.
Some of her other passions include gardening, DIY projects, reading (especially about health & wellness), and experiencing new adventures in travel & food.

Sadie became RYT-200 certified in May 2016 as a vinyasa yoga instructor.

Her classes emphasize building a solid foundation with strength & proper alignment, while also finding ease in asanas (poses) through pranayama (breath). She wants to help guide people along their own journeys to become brighter and happier, with a calmer mind, an open heart & joyful spirit on & off the mat.
A vinyasa practice taught at a slower pace, with more explanation on correct alignment and modifi- cations. Basic postures are explored including standing poses, standing balancing poses, core work and back- bends. This class is appropriate for absolute beginners or experienced students wanting to take it down a notch.
