Ben Grieshaber

RYT 200
 
Ben’s love of music and rhythm has sent him around the country performing for crowds some nights and crickets others! Regardless of the circumstance, he has always been grateful for the chance to travel, explore and play. Years of sleeping in vans and on floors, heavy lifting and heavier drumming created a lot of tension in his body. Seeking some relief from the chronic shoulder pain and migraines, he showed up to a power vinyasa yoga class. Shazam! Like magic, he felt the built up tensions in his body melt and begin to fade away. The feeling he got after every class was invigorating and uplifting!
 
As this practice continued to make shifts in him, the urge to explore further sent him to various workshops with master instructors such as Bryan Kest, Shiva Rea, Ana Forrest and Seane Corn, among many others. It was after attending the Teacher Assisting Program with Lisa Black that he decided he wanted to share this gift with others through the art of instructing. He spent a year studying closely with Lisa Black and many of the SHAKTI team in the Teacher Mentorship Program. Continuing on the path to teaching he has completed Level I training with Baron Baptiste in 2011, The Art of Assisting with BPYI in 2013 and Level II with Baron Baptiste. He holds accreditation with Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200.
 
It is Ben’s intention to guide each class with care and attention focused on healthy alignment while allowing the freedom to find your practice and work intelligently at surfing your own personal edge. His hope is to aid in awakening each and every yogi’s inner passion for life and help bring light to the world one shining heart at a time!
 
Happiness is contagious… pass it on!

Mei Ling Ellis

Mei Ling sees yoga as a powerful tool to help calm the body and mind, which can provide clarity and reduce stress--something that is often needed in today’s fast paced world. Mei Ling is trained in a flowing, devotional, and classical form of Hatha yoga, with additional training in Restorative yoga and mindfulness. She believes in the inherent strengths and skills in all students, and appreciates the uniqueness of every ability, body, and culture. Her teaching style is grounding, and supports students to move mindfully between the push and pull of life by honoring themselves and deepening the connection to their inner voice. Her personal practice consists of Ashtanga, Yin, and Restorative yoga; including meditation. In addition to teaching yoga, Mei Ling is an applied researcher, clinician, and rock climber.
Restorative Yin is yoga at its coolest, quietest, and stillest moments. This gentler, deeply nurturing style of Yin Yoga is a time for deep relaxation and healing. This class will have you on the floor most of the time, using as many props as needed to support you in relaxing into each posture with as little effort as possible. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing joints and fascia to release while restoring balance to your mind, body, and spirit. This class will complement your Vinyasa practice and will open and release areas in need of more flexibility.

Due to the restorative nature of this class, late arrivals will not be granted studio access. Early arrival is strongly encouraged. Please allow extra time for parking and registration to ensure you arrive on time. Thank you.
