This class is taught by:

Jamie Myer

Jamie thinks that the key to happiness is contentment, compassion, and laughter. And sushi. And dogs. Lots of dogs.
Jamie believes that yoga is a constant practice, appropriate for every body, that should be approached with compassion for the self. Her classes focus on breath, alignment and body appreciation, and you will leave her class feeling calm, supported and empowered.

Nora Brank

Nora has been practicing yoga and meditation since she was a very young child. Her dad was an avid yogi and introduced her to the sun salutations at the tender age of five. These days, Nora starts every day with a sun salute and thanks her yoga practice for her health and well being. She believes that yoga can instill all of it's practitioners with a flexibility, resilience and grace that they can use both on and off the mat.

Nora has a MA in philosophy from a program that allowed her to study both Eastern and Western texts. Her love and knowledge of the mystical traditions included in the Vedic texts guides and deepens her yoga practice. You can find her blend of attention to the physical, and knowledge of the ancient, traditional, and spiritual in her Yoga & Meditation classes at Namaste Highland Park.

Jasmine De La Paz

With a life-long passion for music and years of a dedicated yoga practice, Jasmine discovered the power of combining yoga and music during her first Kirtan chant – where she reached her deepest meditation. As a certified Mukti Yoga teacher, and music business professional, sound and movement constantly inspire Jasmine. Yogis believe that something sacred vibrates within us, and that vibrations are the source of life and the Universe. She feels the most powerful way to quiet the mind and experience this vibration is through the combination of asana and sound.   Jasmine intuitively challenges and guides her students with a practice focused on alignment, flow, and breath – mixed with elements of sound through live music, meditations, mantras, crystal bowls, and unique playlists. Her classes provide a balanced, spiritual, and strength building experience that will resonate both on and off the mat.   Jasmine also loves to promote ‘mindful eating’ through creating and sharing plant-based recipes, swimming at the local pool, and enjoying life with her fiancé.
This class focuses on core asanas/postures and the foundations of breath-work.
Learn proper alignment, where to focus effort and where to find release.
**Good choice for beginners, great for all levels. A strong yoga practice begins with a sturdy foundation, this class can fine tune even an advanced practice.
