Marie Bacon - Yin Yoga
Maria began practicing yoga in 2009. She immediately fell in love with yoga not only because of the postures and breathing exercises but because yoga brought together a community of bright souls who desire and actively seek conscious evolution, personally as well as globally. It was not long before yoga became so much more to her than a physical practice. Eager to learn more about yoga, Maria signed up for the Hot-Intensive Teacher Training program as well as the Power-Teacher Training program in 2011 at CorePower Yoga. Maria then went on to study Yin Yoga in the spring of 2012. Yin Yoga has been a great counterbalance to Maria`s hot and power yoga practice. She loves the challenge of teaching someone something new and believes that everyone has the ability to learn yoga. Currently, she is pursuing a degree in Asian religions and Spanish at Hamline University. Beyond yoga and school Maria enjoys cooking, reading, sailing, and kirtan.

She loves the fluid grace and transformative heat that is generated in the dance of Vinyasa practice.

Ann Griffin - Vinyasa Flow
Ann began her yoga journey 10 years ago when she wandered into a yoga class looking for a way to recover after running 3 marathons in 3 months. She found that yoga gave her so much more than she ever hoped for. Her greatest pleasure now is sharing the wonders of yoga movement, breathing, and philosophy with both adults and children. Since completing a 200 hour Teacher Training program in January 2012, she has lead many children’s yoga classes, camps, and events. Teaching first grade in St. Paul keeps her busy when she is not practicing in the studio. She strives to make her own vinyasa classes fun, challenging, and filled with a sense of the wonder of yoga and all it has to offer.

Maggie Miley - Gentle Vinyasa and Awakening the Joyful Heart
Maggie’s yoga journey began with a videotape (Ali McGraw Yoga Mind & Body) at age seventeen. That tape was a constant companion through several years before taking her first class in a studio in Denver. Practicing in a studio setting provided a whole new world of beginning to understand what Yoga is, and how it works in every aspect of life. Upon moving back to Minnesota, Maggie began to practice different styles of yoga such as Kundalini Yoga at the Center for Happiness, Meditation at the Institute of the Himalayan Tradition, Hot & Vinyasa at Corepower Yoga. Since completing a 200 RYT Teacher Training Program in November 2008, she has embraced the opportunity to share the gift of Yoga with the Twin Cities’ amazing Yoga community, and offers all she knows and loves about Yoga from her heart!
Julie began practicing yoga approximately 15 years ago. After reading an article in the New York times about how Kundalini Yoga could help relieve allergies, she found her first class. The results of the practice were amazing! Almost immediately felt a lessening of her allergies and improvement in overall health in general. She attended the first Kundalini Yoga Teacher’s training in Minnesota in 2003 and has attended additional workshops and training, including a section of Level Two training, as well as teaching yoga to youth at risk workshops. Her yoga practice has taken her to Italy and Africa. As Kundalini Yoga is often referred to as the “yoga of awareness” she continues to look forward to the opportunities Kundalini Yoga brings into her life. Sat Nam
