Relationship with the Natural World is the foundation of all of Anna's professional and personal work. One of her intentions is to provide an opportunity for remembering of one’s elemental, organic self. One of her goals in leading yoga and meditation is to allow your experience in the practices to be directly applicable to mindfully navigating (and savoring!) day to day difficulties, joys, and paradoxes. She believes through dedicated practice in mindfulness, we can illuminate our awareness to conditioning of the mind, heart, and body that limits both inward and outward harmony.

A lifelong athlete and consistent weight-lifter, Uriah's initial approach to Yoga was that of another physical challenge. It only took one session for him to realize how much more there was to gain; feeling the constructive, loving environment, and an overall sense of betterment, he knew Yoga would soon be playing a larger role in his life. It expanded his awareness of how much compassion and care was missing from his life. He began a personal meditation practice, and explored its ability to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Settling into postures--and taking the time to reap their deep, rich benefits--is a favorite of his. He knows how beneficial any posture can be when performed properly, and paired with consistent breathing. Yoga is the perfect combination of everything Uriah values in life, and is the reason he was drawn to become a certified instructor. He is thrilled to be teaching and spreading the awareness of its rejuvenating wealth, while continuing to grow his knowledge and become a more experienced practitioner.
Hallie approaches acro yoga as a discipline of playfulness and a practice where those involved can increase their communication and cooperation skills. Over her 4 year acro yoga journey, Hallie has grown in her flexibility, strength, and knowledge and is fulfilled when she can share her experiences with others and learn from them, too. Her hope is that students come to class with curiosity and open minds, and leave class feeling they have made connections with others and have gained confidence in themselves!
I began yoga in graduate school when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was told to reduce stress, change my diet, & exercise. Yoga became an important part of my life; that was in 1982. I began teaching in 1983. I have been teaching ever since.
I started studying the art & science of Iyengar yoga in 1986. I have been dedicated to the tradition since that time. I am able to adapt poses for a variety of physical & emotional situations. One of my gifts is the ability to “see” and adjust imbalances on multiple levels. One of my focal points in teaching with props is the prop is a teacher, not a crutch. The props help teach the final pose which affects all levels of our being. I am blessed to be a teacher at Yoga Sol.
Andy started doing Yoga about 4 years ago after inadvertently finding it through a performance art school he was attending in NYC. As someone who was spiritual at heart, but lacked the vessel to explore it, a physical practice like yoga really worked for Andy. As a kid who struggled with depression and fitting in, Yoga was the only thing that really worked. The combination of challenging asana, mindful breathing, and relaxed effort really helped kick start his love for self-discipline and introspection as a means for self love and care. After experimenting off and on for a few years, he began a more rigorous and disciplined practice. With that consistent practice, he realized that he had a lot to give and decided to become a teacher. Andy was trained in Hatha Yoga of the Shambhavananda tradition, and is studying ashtanga and iyengar methods.
