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...

    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."

    JUNE TEACHER

    Q&A with CORINA WOJNOWSKI

    Who are some of your teachers?  Locally it would be Meg Galarza @ YogaOne she is an amazing teacher. I have also trained and practiced with Kathryn Budig, Stephanie Synder, Jason Crandell, Noah Maze and Sage Roundtree.

    How would you describe the form of yoga you teach currently?  I’m Vinyasa flow teacher. I like to teach a strong flow but not technically out of reach.

    Where do you teach? YogaOne, Tosa Yoga, Elite

    Why do you teach?  This practice changed my life for the better in so many different ways, my hope is my students might find those same benefits. {TAP here for more CORINA...}

    Meditation

    Meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state. It is the means for fathoming all the levels of ourselves and finally experiencing the center of consciousness within. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified. It is a practice in which an…
