All Levels Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Steve Ferrara


Steve began practicing yoga in 2011 in an effort to find a new approach to personal fitness. The practice of yoga evolved into a daily part of his life. He feels as though the mental and spiritual benefits quickly began to overshadow the physical benefits. Through the practice, he developed a calmer, more compassionate self in addition to achieving a new level of physical fitness. This led to his decision to participate in a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Theresa Murphy. He began teaching shortly after completing the program in 2014.  Steve continues to seek out avenues to grow his personal practice and teaching style. His classes typically involve smooth, strong movements and focused attention to alignment and breath, allowing for his students to feel and explore into each posture.

Courtnay Meletta

TEACHER
Courtnay received her 200hr yoga teacher training at Kripalu in 2003. Since then she has been enjoying the healing wonders of the practice as a student and teacher, studying with inspired teachers all around the globe. A licensed mind-body psychotherapist and PhD candidate in mind-body medicine, Courtnay has a depth of knowledge on the emotional and psychological experiences of yoga as a healing system. She believes that we can utilize the incredible gift of yoga as a means towards limitless growth. Her goal is to provide an intelligent, challenging, and contemplative class (with humor!) where you will have the opportunity to drop in to the many layers of your experience, body, mind, and spirit.

Noelle Curren

Noelle is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher. She came to her practice at 17, teaching herself postures and sequences from a yoga book, quickly developing a very strong, committed home practice. She fell in love with the intensity of holding the physical postures, the creativity of creating her own sequences and the freedom to explore; which eventually led her to teaching. Noelle attended the University of Rhode Island where she studied Kinesiology with a focus in exercise science. In 2013 she completed her Level 1 YogaFit certification and taught yoga at the Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center at the University of Rhode Island. She completed her teacher training at Raffa Yoga in December 2015. Noelle brings her playful spirit, humor, and love for yoga to her classes; as well as her strong background in anatomy and understanding of the body in motion. Noelle teaches from an authentic place with the intention of presenting yoga in a way that is accessible for everyone. Classes are mindfully taught to draw attention to alignment and towards cultivating strength. Noelle teaches creative sequences to the backdrop of carefully crafted playlists that compliment the progression of the class and enhance the overall experience.

Erica Douglass

After taking her first yoga class Erica was instantly hooked. The clarity and mindfulness along with a powerful workout kept her coming back for more, and ignited a passion in her to share this love for Yoga with others. Erica completed her 200-hour teacher training at Yoga One, a Live Love Teach affiliate studio. She loves the idea of Yoga as a practice where the learning never stops. Erica enjoys teaching classes where students are encouraged to go beyond what they think is possible so they leave feeling empowered, energized, and rejuvenated. She strives to create a class vibe where breath and flow combine to create a beautiful release of tension, stress and worry. Creative, challenging sequences help students get out of their heads and connect to body and mind.

 

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. 
 

 

Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. These classes will offer a challenging flow usually with longer holds but always with a focus on breath and movement. We will flow through fun, creative, and at times unexpected sequences that bring the breath along for the ride. We will leave plenty of room to refine alignment, experiment with variations, and get acquainted or reacquainted with the more subtle aspects of the practice.
All levels are welcome and supported! The room will be heated to approximately 90 degrees with a comfortable level of humidity.
