Since then, Chris describes his experience with yoga as if he is talking about magic. “My body, mind and spirit have all grown in strength and resilience. My heart is as open as it’s ever been. I’ve even had my first real connection with the Divine, and I attribute it all to my yoga practice. I view these all as real-life miracles.”
Chris completed the AYS 200-hour yoga teacher training in March of 2018 and Annie Au’s 100-hour Chinese Meridians and yin yoga teacher training in August 2018.
Chris teaches Flow Basics, Slow Flow, Hot Flow, Hot Power Flow and Yin with a strong emphasis on alignment and breath. Outside of yoga, Chris is interested in nature, meditation, trail running, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and healthy, delicious foods.
Matt teaches a baptiste style flow and has also brought yoga back to his CrossFit box by teaching weekly mobility class. While Matt leaves the burpees for CrossFit you can still expect to get an intense flow workout usually accompanied by movie scores (bonus points for anyone who knows the movie titles they're from 😉) ending with some much needed stretching; and if time allows a shoulder massage.
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.
When I’m not at the studio you can catch me running, meditating, obsessing over essential oils, writing, or cooking!
