Terry Seth Owner/Instructor
I remember that after my first yoga class I immediately felt the physical benefits of the postures; but it was after many years of practice that I began to also feel the mental, emotional and spiritual benefits, too. I have had some wonderful yoga instructors through the years, all of whom challenged, inspired and motivated me in many ways. Because of all of them and their teachings, I was inspired to become an instructor myself in 2005. Yoga is the union of the body, mind and spirit, and in my classes I hope to share my joy for yoga in an authentic, non-judgmental, compassion-centered teaching style, so that others will learn to make that connection too.
"May the entire universe be filled with peace and joy, love and light."
Christina Ohmer Instructor
Christina encourages students to be curious and explore their mind, body and heart on and off the mat. This self-exploration and the use of one’s own breath rhythm as the soundtrack for the practice can help cultivate a deeper awareness and inner listening. Christina values classical yoga teachings, asana, meditation, and breathwork, and draws from many other teachings and traditions.
Since coming to the mat in 2002, Christina has explored different yoga styles and has had the fortunate opportunity to come across valuable teachers and friendships. In 2010, she earned her 200-hour yoga teaching certificate with Tias and Surya Little at Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since then, she has continued studies through extensive internal work on and off the mat, and by attending various classes and workshops.
Christina is enlivened by connecting with others and finds the yoga practice to be one of the most rewarding, enriching, and often challenging pieces of her life. For these reasons, she is drawn to share the practice and hopes you will join her soon!
Melanie Henderson Instructor
Melanie has been practicing yoga for over 7 years and is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. Melanie completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Satya School of Yoga under the guidance of Sona Hernandez and Stacey Orr and her 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Michael Plasha.
She believes that yoga is important to healing the body, mind and spirit for people of all ages. Melanie feels that returning our connection to the breath and sitting in silence are necessary in our over-stressed, fast-paced world today. We must return to the breath and turn inward to improve our well-being, health care system, and community. She is passionate about bringing the practice of yoga to those suffering from chronic stress and diseases, such as stroke and cancer. A young, vibrant spirit at heart, Melanie wants to further obtain certification in children’s yoga to empower them to take a greater role in being healthy. She is an avid Muppet fan and her practices often involve a lighthearted and child-like playfulness—true to her belief that our inner child must continue to shine no matter what age we are. You may even hear a word of wisdom or two from Jim Henson during her class!
Betty Amatangelo Instructor
Betty has been teaching yoga for eight years. As an avid and passionate yoga student for 13 years, she gradually realized that yoga was her portal to spiritual awareness/awakened-ness as well as a way to guide others to a deeper level of mind-body--spirit consciousness.
Betty is certified in Lay Ministry, has an Associate's degree in Religious Education and a BA in Religious Studies. In addition to her *CYT/RYT/Y12SR status, she is certified in Thai Yoga Massage.
The experience of teaching preschoolers, at risk youth, high school and college students, senior citizens, veterans, recovering addicts, athletes and the typical student at a studio class has helped her be prepared and effective in various teaching situations.
Betty's intention for her students is always to bring them to a place of stillness within themselves. Using a vinyasa style of yoga, flowing from posture to posture, connecting the breath to each movement, students are encouraged with wisdom, literature, music and heartfelt guidance.
