Guest Teacher: Heidi Vaught
Heidi will be guest teaching Friday Sept. 16th 9:00- 10:00am & Sunday Sept. 18th 9:00- 10:00am. Heidi has practiced yoga for nearly 10 years and taught for almost 5. Originally hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, she received her 230-hr RYT from Infinite Bliss Yoga under the guidance and wisdom of teachers Allison Terracio, Laura Patterson, and Denise Stottomann. Besides practicing and teaching yoga, Heidi loves to garden, travel, cook, and hang out with her dog Bee. Each year she devotes one to two months to traveling and living in other places, completely submersing herself in their unique cultures and atmospheres. She finds that yoga is not unlike life, in that, if you show up often enough you will eventually find yourself in new and sometimes very strange places.
Heidi’s classes are light-hearted, uplifting, and woven with storytelling. She is inspired by ancient yogic myths, anatomy, and Asheville’s very hip (opening) yoga scene. Her classes are guaranteed to give you the confidence boost and belly laugh you need to get yourself through the rest of the day, and maybe even the week.
Guest Teacher: Alison Hess
Alison will be guest teaching Wednesday August 31st 8:30-9:30am. Alison Hess grew up in the South Jersey area, classically trained in dance by Floss Matteo as a young child and developing into one of Encore Performing Arts company dancers. Alison recieved her BA degree in Education from La Salle University before traveling to the University of Hawaii to continue her study in Dance. Upon returning to the mainland in 2000, Alison gravitated toward the Pilates method, yet found it somewhat slow and at the age of 23, "boring", (Alison, now at the wise age of 38, happens to love Pilates) so she decided to choreograph her own technique. One that resonated with her body, mind, & soul. BARRE! What else?!?
Alison worked hours in her living room to complete the perfect fusion of muscle sculpting, strengthening, and lengthening, while staying true to her roots. This "barre" class wouldn't be complete without stress on music and movement. After hours, days, weeks, her original choregoraphy was born.. entitled "Barre Belles". Alison opened her first studio in Margate, NJ, where she continues to teach to a packed house!
Guest Teacher : Molly Schweickert
Molly will be guest teaching this coming Tuesday August 16th 9:00-10:00am. This class will be a 60 min. Power Vinyasa Flow for all levels. Molly is a certified 200 RYT yoga teacher trained by CorePower Yoga (awesome studio!). She will be traveling to Hatteras from Washington, DC to enjoy a vacation at the beach and of course some yoga!
