Yoga for Muscle Recovery


This class is taught by:

Jeffrey Wedelich

Jeffrey believes that yoga has the power to reduce stress and promote physical healing. He teaches a class that focuses on breath and well-being, while still providing opportunities for improvements in strength and flexibility. He offers a simple approach to make progress accessible to the intermediate student. Jeffrey hopes to make it as easy as possible for people to discover the benefits of yoga. Jeffrey took his first yoga class in 2006, not realizing that vinyasa would soon become an integral part of his life. He received his 200-hour RYT certification from Awakened Yoga in 2014. He has experience working as a personal trainer, is a proficient kick-boxer, and is learning gymnastics. Jeffrey received a BS in Engineering Science from Trinity University in 2007. His passions for athleticism and longevity have made him an ongoing student of nutrition.

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.

Matt Hostetter

In 2010 Matt was seeking to improve his overall health and fitness and was introduced to CrossFit by a friend. In 2014, he began practicing Yoga to counter-balance the rigors of CrossFit on his body and quickly saw the benefits. He decided to further his practice by becoming a certified teacher in 2015 at Awakened Yoga.

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.

Yoga for Muscle Recovery is an unheated class that is open to all levels. Emphasis is placed on aligning breath with movement to generate warmth, improve circulation, and deliver nutrients to muscles and connective tissues. The vinyasa-style sequencing is designed to reinforce healthy patterns of motion and to address muscle imbalances with unilateral exercises. Forms of self-massage such as foam-rolling are employed to increase blood flow and facilitate soft-tissue repair. The class concludes with floor-based stretching to improve flexibility, increase range of motion, and create a sense of relaxation.
