Core Flow


This class is taught by:

Tatyana Souza

A PhD and an E-RYT, Tatyana Souza received her 200hr certification in 2011 from Back Bay Yoga in Boston under Kate Greer, Nicole Clark and Lynn Begier. Inspired by the yoga training and by her two little kids, Tatyana left her career in the pharmaceutical industry to co-found Coolidge Corner Yoga in 2013 and Sadhana Yoga in 2016. A dreamer and believer in the "good", Tatyana wanted to lead by example for her little boys. She believes that yoga is the catalyst for personal and global change and hopes to make an impact in her community and the world by creating a warm, sacred space where yoga students can move, connect, and cultivate much needed stillness and breath in their daily life.


Tatyana's teaching is inspired by Maybelle Rowntree, Schuyler Grant and Annie Carpenter. She is currently pursuing her 500hr training at the Wanderlust studio in Hollywood. She gracefully weaves together creative sequencing with well informed alignment cues to facilitate a fluid yet safe experience focusing both on strength and movement. She uses compassionate, intuitive, as well as, alignment-focused touch to allow students to feel supported, safe and sacred in their asana practice and in their bodies.

Laura Ahrens

Laura Ahrens reluctantly tried yoga in 2009, and was surprised by her almost immediate dedication to the practice. She received a 200-hour certification in vinyasa in 2011. Shortly after, she was captivated by the deeply connected and core-centric practice of Forrest Yoga and went on to complete the Foundation and Advanced Teacher Trainings with creator Ana Forrest and year-long mentorship with Dr. Heidi Sormaz. She also holds a BFA from The University of the Arts.

 

Laura’s current work is a melding together all of the different truths of moving and living through the yogic tradition that she has had the privilege of learning. Her teaching is more of an approach to practice than style-focused. Laura works with attention to an individual's physical and emotional starting points to empower ownership of one's practice.

 

Passionate about connection, her teaching is fueled by depth of breath, strong connection to core, precision of alignment, and commitment to the internal and somatic work necessary for personal evolution. Laura emphasizes quality of movement, and is adamant about process. She is inspired by intentional transitions and warrior-like, functional movement.

 

Laura is most interested in teaching others to be discerning practitioners who synthesize information through their own specific circumstances. In that spirit, she co-created The New School of Yogic Arts, a 200-hour yoga teacher training for those who want to teach the practice of yoga as a living system that breathes differently in each body.

Taylor Young

Taylor Young first encountered yoga during her adolescence, when she used it as a complementary practice to her athletic pursuits. As is the case for many, Taylor was first drawn to the physicality of the practice, but then it turned into something more. Over the past decade, yoga has become a thread woven throughout her life, which serves as the coalescence of many gifts. For Taylor, yoga is an integral part of her spiritual practice, physical fitness, anxiety management, moral compass, and is a way of practicing discipline for life.

 

Above all, Taylor uses yoga as a method for introspection and self-study. She has found that looking inward, with kindness and curiosity facilitates more effective responses to daily stresses and challenges. This, in turn, nourishes peacefulness, compassion, and integrity.

 

Taylor practices many styles of yoga, including slow flow, Iyengar, vinyasa, and restorative. She weaves elements of these methods into her teachings. Taylor completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Boston Yoga School under the tutelage of Ame Wren. She is grateful for the many teachers and mentors who continue to support her on the path of yoga. Additionally, Taylor is a licensed clinical social worker and provides integrative psychotherapy and counseling throughout the Boston area. She uses yoga asana, meditation, mantra, and mudra in her therapy work. Taylor also enjoys mountains, forests, and oceans as a the regular respite from city living.

Core Flow will restore and strengthen all muscles in the core. The class is suitable for all levels and will consist of breath work to engage deep abdominal muscles, yoga poses linked to breath which activate and condition the core, as well as deep stretching and strengthening of the muscles that work closely together with the core to achieve maximal benefit.
