VinYin


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.

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.
VinYin begins with a slow-paced vinyasa warm-up to prepare the body for the stretches to come. The yin yoga that follows is designed to release muscular tension and develop flexibility through the joints. The practice focuses on using the breath to calm the body and mind. This class is suitable for all levels, but caution is advised for pregnant or post-natal mothers.
