KIDS & TWEENS YOGA:
Brittny Lowe, a Fitness Instructor, was recently certified in both Yoga and Aerial Yoga. Sharing the practice of yoga, whether on the floor or in the air, has allowed her to find a peaceful place which carries her through everyday life. Brittny is constantly learning more about the human body to understand how the muscles directly connect to your emotions, thoughts and spirituality. Everyday is a practice both as a student and as an instructor.
Brittny spent June 2012 in Kerala, South India traveling to India as a volunteer with Volunteers for Peace & FSL-India where she worked with children at the Marian School for the Differentially-abled. She studied daily with Yoga Master T.V. Padmanabhan from the University of Bihar Yoga Bharathi and also studied at the Parassinikkadavu Ayurveda Medical College. Experiencing the culture of India and having the opportunity to learn Yoga and Ayurveda from the source is thus far been the greatest blessing of her life. Yoga was a fun hobby in the beginning, but is now her way of life.
Laura Baron, a recent transplant from NYC, came to yoga for the awesome, constantly intriguing workout--unable to touch her toes and much more interested in learning cool yoga tricks than in meditation or spirituality. Several years later (after, of course, mastering some very cool yoga tricks), she realized that yoga had quietly and relentlessly changed her life. Laura completed her teacher training at Sonic Yoga in New York and has since worked with Connected Warriors to create programs for veterans and active-duty military personnel at the Brooklyn Vet Center as well as the Durham VA. She brings humor and a fierce joy in practice to her classes and encourages students to challenge themselves.
