About the teacher
Specialties: Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Pre/Postnatal Yoga, Yoga for Labor & Childbirth, Partner Yoga Yoga brings me home. When I practice regularly, I feel at home in my body and I have the energy and awakened wisdom to maintain a joyful life-balance. When I teach, I am at home with my creative energy and service to others. In teaching, I honor the time I share with students and aim to provide a positive space where every student can feel safe and empowered to breathe, move, play, transform, rejuvenate, and ultimately find “home” in their radiant hearts and peaceful minds. I began my yoga journey in 1994 during a high school yoga class. Little did I know the profound effect this experience would play in my life. Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies in arts education and arts administration, yoga was always a beacon to help me maintain mental focus, emotional balance, and physical strength. Throughout my early yoga practices, I explored several styles of yoga, including Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini. Shortly after moving to Morgantown, WV in 2007, my goal to become a yoga teacher manifested once I met Joanne VandenHengel. I excitedly enrolled in her 3rd Street Yoga 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program and completed my certification in 2009. As a new yoga instructor, it was an honor to co-create the yoga program at BlissBlissBliss with Mary Jo Schick in 2009. Together with Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds, we set into motion a space where the phrase “Yoga for everyBODY" was truth and continues to be its blissful mission. My teaching style is sincere, cheerful and eclectic, blending the traditional alignment principles of Hatha Yoga with my love of creative movement, playful expression, and awakened breathing. My interests in the therapeutic and spiritual aspects of yoga are also at the heart of my classes. I enjoy using thematic exploration to guide a series of classes and to kindle the union of postures, breathing, and mindfulness. My passion and interest in women-centered wellness inspired me to start the BlissMama Yoga Program, which includes yoga classes such as: prenatal, fertility, postnatal, mama & baby, and a Yoga & Birthing workshop for partners. In the spring of 2011, I completed the Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher Certification through Yoga Matrika with Sharon Fennimore, and I am currently on the certification path to become a DONA-certified Doula. I am also an assistant instructor for 3rd Street Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program offered annually at BlissBlissBliss. I take my yoga off the mat and into my world as a mother to three wonderful daughters, whom remind me daily that a joyful life exists in the NOW. Together with my husband, we seek and enjoy the simple pleasures of family-time, the great outdoors, and taking time to breathe. I would love to see you in a class soon! I am also available for specialized private yoga sessions for individuals or small groups. These private sessions are great for exploring one’s authentic and personal goals, or to get a group together for some collective yoga fun. Namaste! Certifications: Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance), Registered Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance), Doula

Tiny Trees (18 months - 5 years with adult) Special Event
with Angela Carver
30.00 minutes
$12.00
Tiny Trees (18 months - 5 years with adult) - 30 minutes - $12 each class Tiny Trees Yoga is for children 18 months – 5 years with an adult (parent, grandparent, nanny). Each class offers children an adventure using music, games and story to learn poses and aspects of yoga. The adult will model poses or help the child into the pose. Each class ends with relaxation and reading a book.
About the teacher
Specialty: Children’s yoga I started doing yoga when I was pregnant. I loved the yoga, the community with the other Moms and the send-off we got right before we delivered. I did Mom/Baby classes and returned to pre-natal yoga when I was pregnant with my second child. Then we moved and after arriving in WV, I found Bliss and started attending classes when I could. I also took my girls to Itsy Bitsy Yoga and they loved it. As my kids got older and needed me less I explored what I wanted to do and since I loved yoga and the girls enjoyed it I looked into kid’s yoga certifications. I found Child Light and was certified in the summer of 2013. That fall, my oldest daughter was in a bicycle accident with facial/mouth injuries. While in the emergency room, we both survived because of the breathing techniques I learned and had already shared with my daughters. The numbing gel and lidocaine did not work and she felt every stitch in her chin, but because we breathed together she didn’t move a muscle. Right then I knew the certification was worth it even if I never taught a class. But I’m so glad I did as the last 2 ½ years teaching kids 18 months to 12 years of age has been a joy and I love every minute. Classes are not like an adult class; using music, games and stories, but the smiles on their faces when they hold a pose and repeat positive affirmations gets me through any bad day. I teach or have taught at ELF (Morgantown Early Learning Facility), the Boys and Girls Club (two different elementary school after school programs), as well as volunteering at area school wellness nights and other community outreach programs. I love spending time with my husband Jeffrey and daughters, Samantha and Madelyn, as well as our two dogs Nikki and Tilly. I served as PTO President at Mountainview Elementary, President of the Children’s Discovery Museum of West Virginia which is now Spark! Imagination and Science Center where I am currently the fundraising chair. Certification: CLY TT Basic
