Claudia started teaching Yoga at Hayfork Yoga Center in August of 2011 after completing her 200-hour teaching certification at Ananda Village in Nevada City, California. She returned to Ananda in March 2012 to become certified in Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Seniors and Osteoporosis. She now has over 500 hours of teaching experience and a strong background in Yoga therapy with another 265 hours. In June of 2015 she should be a Level 1 certified Yoga Therapist Practitioner. Claudia has been practicing Yoga for 10 years and loves it. She also loves teaching and has been teaching young people and adults for years as a preschool teacher and parent educator. Because of these loves, making the transition to teaching yoga has been easy. She believes in what Yoga can do for our bodies, minds, and overall health. Claudia has been consistently supporting Hayfork Yoga studio since it was started by Ilene Dunn around 2008 and is glad to be a part of keeping the studio open now.
Melanie graduated from the Vajra Pani Yoga Teacher Training at the Shasta Yoga Institute in Mount Shasta California. The training is fundamentally grounded in the lineage of teachings offered by T. Krishnamacharya and his student B.K.S. Iyengar.
The theme for Melanie's first seven classes was chakras. Each week the class focused on poses to help balance the individual chakras, working through all seven chakras as the weeks progressed.
Rachel Anderson and Dave Menefee hold both the Findhorn-inspired meditations and lead pilates at Hayfork Yoga Center. Regarding pilates, they are not certified instructors, but they do follow a list of standard exercises. These classes are free of charge, but donations to support the yoga studio are gratefully accepted.
Judy has knowingly walked toward the light since 1975. She leads yoga classes when the certified teachers are unavailable.
Judy started the Inner Light support circle to share the gems of my truths and the techniques that have helped her to let go or accept those things that were holding her back. The support circle was intended to help us achieve our life goals in a joyful, peaceful (as possible) and loving way. This class may return to the schedule with sufficient interest.
Reiki Circle is led by Patricia Morrison and others and is open to the public.
