Hatha Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Robin Hashway

Robin began practicing yoga and fell, quick and hard, in love with the physical practice. Always an athlete, yoga provided not only strength training, but a delicious sense of full body ease, not something she usually associated with "working out." And when the opportunity arose to take a teacher training, she jumped in. Robin had no intention of teaching, only wanting to learn more about the physical benefits of asana, and to begin to dive into the history and philosophy of a practice that was quickly transforming not only her body, but her sense of calm and wellbeing. Part of the training requirement was practice teaching, so Robin forced her family to meet every week for an hour so she could pass along the sequences and postures she was learning. By the end of her training, Robin was itching to start passing on everything she could to anyone who would listen, and lo and behold, applied to teach.
Robin trained in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga right here at Providence Power Yoga, earning her 200 hour RYT in February of 2016, and began teaching in April of the same year. She approaches the asana practice as a way to explore the body and mind with curiosity and joy. By creating strong, sometimes unusual sequences based on the foundational postures, students build strength and security. Steady vinyasa flow, supplemented with graceful organic movements (and just a little fun) allows the student to find their own freedom of expression on the mat.

“Yoga is the practice of tolerating the consequences of being yourself.”

Just like she was meant to birth her two children, Caroline was born to practice and teach yoga. Her journey on the mat began in 2000 with Bikram Yoga when looking to get into shape for her wedding in 2001. Caroline’s sister suggested a Vinyasa class and she was hooked. She no longer felt as stressed when living her life of wife, mother, and professional. Caroline’s emotions began to balance themselves out with every practice. She now believes that self study on and off the mat is the root to clarity of body, mind, and spirit. Caroline was certified to teach Vinyasa in 2010 by Eyes Of The World Studio with Tom Gillette and Shannah Green. She recently completed an advanced 500 hour training with Theresa Murphy in traditional Hatha Yoga. This training was a cross-pollination of styles, penetrating study of asana, anatomy, meditation, therapeutics, hands on assisting, sequencing, wisdom teachings, subtle anatomy and so much more. One of Caroline’s students described her classes and her teaching the following way, "You possess a fluidity with your emotions and the classes/sequences that you teach. You have a fire about you that creates this compelling energy of motivation and inspiration.You inspire others to enter into areas of their practice that might be difficult.” Her classes include many different styles of yoga and wisdom teachings. Caroline weaves every class differently so that the student has a better sense of their body and feels the transformative experience that is yoga.

STUDIO MANAGER/TEACHER DEVELOPMENT/YOGA TEACHER Julie completed her first teacher training through Sivananda Yoga at their Ashram in Grass Valley, CA in 2005. She began teaching shortly after receiving her certification. In 2007/2008, she completed a Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Tom Gillette at Eyes of the World Yoga. She completed a 500 hour Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Theresa Murphy and Dan Boyne, and is eternally grateful for their guidance, wisdom, humor and friendship. Julie continually looks for opportunities to expand her offerings and has most recently participated in Restorative Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga  and Yoga Kurunta (wall ropes) training with her primary teacher, Theresa Murphy. During the summer of 2016, she completed a Yin Yoga teacher training with Josh Summers. Julie currently teaches Heated Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Yoga.
In Hatha Vinyasa, there is emphasis on proper alignment to ensure that the most benefit is derived from the pose and that risk of injury is reduced. Props, including blankets, blocks and straps, are incorporated to achieve proper alignment. Breathing is emphasized to help students experience a mindful practice. Breathing (Pranayama) and meditation techniques may also be taught as a class focus. Hatha Vinyasa is an excellent style for students who appreciate longer holds in individual postures so that they may begin to experience the poses more deeply from the inside. Students who prefer a slower and more meditative approach to practice (while still reaping the benefits of a physical practice) will benefit greatly from Hatha Vinyasa. The intention for this class is to be able to express yourself in the practice of yoga and to embrace that it is your practice and that you are invited to show up exactly as you are.

The room is heated between 85-90 degrees with some humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.
