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

About the teacher
Mary Angel Blount, MFA, RYT, comes to yoga from a roundabout route. Before she started training to be a yoga instructor, she taught college English for 23 years. “When I discovered yoga in the 1990s, I was teaching creative writing and composition. I was amazed at yoga’s effect on creativity,” she says. “Yoga lowered my self-criticism, so I could feel freer to create.” She continues: “Yoga is also phenomenal for stress. It speeds up the energy in my body and slows down the energy in my mind. It is the perfect reset! More than that, it’s bliss! My calling is to help others discover how profoundly and how positively yoga can affect us all.” In addition to teaching a variety of hatha/vinyasa yoga classes at Bliss Bliss Bliss such as Gentle Yoga and Bliss Flow, Mary Angel also teaches Chakra Yoga, a 75-minute class that includes chakra assessment & balancing, journaling, chanting, meditation, and asana. “The two forces running through our bodies—the liberation current and the manifestation current—are always fluctuating and thus, in constant need of balancing. Chakra Yoga helps us to balance our energy and dissolve our blocks to love and creative bliss.”

Monthly Messages From Spirit Special Event
with Tonya Madia
75.00 minutes
$15.00
Join Tonya each month for an hour long conversation with spirit as she shares information coming through as it relates to guidance for the participants of each session. Messages can range from information regarding love, relationships, and money and might apply individually or on a group level. Tonya receives information during sessions in the form of intuitive thoughts, feelings, images, and sounds. As a Medium she often sees spirits and the images that they show her. Every spirit communicates differently. Tonya likes to think of spirits as simply people without bodies, and as such their personalities are just as varied as ours. Although she can not control if or who “comes through” during each session, she is a firm believer that messages received are always the right message at the right time. You will settle in a yoga room. We have folding chairs, blankets, mats and bolsters for your comfort. Tonya Madia is an author, Reiki Master, medium, yoga teacher, and massage therapist who believes in the importance of cultivating and trusting your intuition. She has seen first hand how practices such as yoga, meditation and Reiki lead to a deeper awareness and understanding of the natural intuitive abilities that we all possess and she now teaches others how to develop these life-enhancing skills. She began connecting with and channeling messages from spirit in 2009 when she was directed by guides to try automatic writing. After her level III Reiki Attunement the following year, Tonya began seeing spirit and she has been channeling messages for clients ever since. **This is a $15 Workshop. Not a yoga pass. Walk ins are welcome - but it is exciting to see that you have registered in advance.**
About the teacher
As an author, massage therapist, Reiki Master, and Yoga teacher I am passionate about helping others on their journey to wellness. I began studying meditation 16 years ago, began practicing Hatha yoga in 2009 and completed my 200 Hour teacher training in 2012. My passion for sharing yoga with others comes from the knowledge that yoga has the potential to transform us from the inside out. By creating a union between mind, body and breath, yoga establishes the welcoming path that leads us home to ourselves. I work with each of my clients to individually tailor sessions that bring body and mind into balance. I have been a student of the human energy system and energy healing for 17 years. I was originally schooled in Pranic Energy Healing in 2000 and received my Level 3 Reiki Certification in 2009. I feel truly blessed to be on this journey and look forward to meeting you as I travel this path.

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!

About the teacher
Yoga Therapist, E-RYT500, Akashic Record Reader Specialties: Akashic Record Reading, Breathwork, Meditation, Yoga Therapy, Hot Vinyasa, Yin Yoga You are the electricity and Melita is the light switch! Melita creates a sacred space for healing that combines deep understanding and knowledge, ownership of your own body, and humor. Melita believes that your growth and potential are only diminished by your own limiting beliefs. We are all powerful beyond measure. Melita started teaching Yoga in 2009 and started her Massage Therapy practice in 2010. She’s since then learned the subtle yet powerful healing of Bowen Therapy to help the body heal more quickly and more permanently. Even more importantly, she’s learned how much the energetic and emotional body affects the physical and that if you want to make any changes in your life you need to address the energetics first and foremost. She has since then added Akashic Record Readings to her practice and these have become one of her favorite ways to work with clients. She’s constantly amazed at how physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues can be resolved with time in the records. Another favorite way of working with groups is through the powerful healing of the breath. Your breath can move stuck emotional & physical energy. Breathwork helps with depression and anxiety, deepens your intuition, and increases creativity. Breathwork is an undercover manifestation tool that can clear the channel to align with your dreams. And most of all, it opens your heart to greater self-love. Melita offers Breathwork Circles every other month and they are an extremely powerful way to help heal your body, mind, and spirit. Melita still enjoys a strong physical and challenging yoga asana practice and continues to teach two classes in this format, Thursday at 5:30pm and Saturday 9am. In fact, she was the very first person in Morgantown to offer Hot Yoga. Yet her favorite way to work with private clients and small groups is with Yoga Therapy. Yoga Therapy simply put is self-care! Melita has found that no matter what clients are dealing with that Yoga can assist on their path. Yoga meets you exactly where you are. Yoga Therapy is for anyone dealing with any physical issue, ailment, disease, stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders, digestive, hormonal, or immune system issues. Basically, if you are suffering any issue, Yoga Therapy is a great place for you to add into your self-care routine to bring your body and mind back to wholeness.

Riverflow is a dynamic workshop for adults who wish to develop focus and tap into their creativity. Led by Mary Angel Blount, RYT, MFA, this class combines writing exercises with yoga, meditation, breathwork, and chanting designed specifically to increase creativity, focus, and clarity.

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
