JULY TEACHER

Q&A with MELISSA BROWN,
owner/teacher YOGARITHM STUDIOS

1. What led you to the practice of yoga?
I have always been an advocate of healthy living and when I found myself in a draining career, I used all of my free time to better myself. I was at the gym 6 days a week, participating in several group classes including yoga. After just a year of a consistent yoga practice, I decided to take the teacher training to learn more.  I had no intention to teach but felt compelled to share what I had learned as soon as I completed the training.

2. Who are your teachers?
My greatest teachers are my students. Every class I lead, I leave feeling inspired with a desire to learn more and more.

3. What style of yoga do you teach?
I tend to lead vinyasa style classes. I also have incorporated several of the Strala Yoga principles within my practice and teaching: movement is freedom, do what feels good, add what variations to a pose that are right for you in that moment.

    SEPTEMBER RETREAT BECKONS...

    WELCOME TO MKE!

    "Rooted in classical and enriched with the great wisdom of Astanga Vinyasa and Prana Vinyasa (tm)" Aubree Saia brings her esteemed Madison, WI Yoga Teacher Training curriculum to Milwaukee for the first time. Location will be on Milwaukee's North Shore, classes begin in September. Space is limited and registration is open! 

    OmTOWN GRANT @ WORK

    We applaud and, through our Annual Grant Fund, support the work of KATE WERNING in creating "Circulo de Mujeres (women's Circle)," a yoga program for Spanish-speaking women on Milwaukee's south side.

    In Kate's words, "The goal of the group is to create connections – connections internally with our own

    bodies, minds, and souls; as well as connections and relationships with each other. One of the biggest challenges facing the immigrant community is isolation and depression – which can only

    be overcome through the combination of personal and internal liberation partnered with support and community. In this way we are attempting to create a foundation for both."

    A newly certified teacher asked me recently if I had any ideas to help her "launch." My 3 minute response:

    Congratulations on your accomplishment! Regarding your readiness to share, there are a few ideas that come to mind.


    First, you may want to contact a few studio owners offering to get on sub lists, and then take as many appropriate sub jobs as you can. I recommend to all beginning teachers to teach classes that are not geared toward beginning…
