Vinyasa Yoga EXPRESS - Level 2


This class is taught by:

Kara Brown

Kara's yoga practice began in Tampa Bay in 2007 after she graduated college and got her first job. She immediately fell in love with yoga at the first session. From there, she got a mat of her own, searched out studios and began attending classes. She found the more she practiced, the more stability, strength and positive energy it brought to her life off the mat. She was greatly influenced by the HUGE yoga community in St. Petersburg, FL, and yoga quickly became a way of life for her there. She sought out local workshops, events, and was a devoted member at The Body Electric Yoga Company as she practiced regularly under co-owner Kaitlyn Grady who helped inspire her dedicated love for a fun, but intense vinyasa flow and the mindset that yoga is for everyone! Since then, her home practice has grown very strong, she has relocated to Indianapolis and completed her 200 hour at Invoke in 2017. Kara's class goal is always to find a way to help her students gain strength mentally, physically, and emotionally on their mat that they are able to take with them off of the mat.

Jillian McAfee

Jillian McAfee, ERYT-200 and Invoke Studio Manager, graduated from Indiana University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Fitness has always been an integral part of Jillian’s life as she grew up dancing competitively and attended several conventions and intensives across the country. At a young age, she also found a love for teaching dance. Her love for teaching led her to discover her desire to help others live healthy lifestyles. She chose to pursue a career in fitness, which, to her, became the perfect blend of physical movement and working with others.
As a health nut and Personal Trainer, Jillian has dabbled in most forms of exercise. The physical challenges of yoga are what intrigued her initially, but she soon found a connection much deeper. Yoga is more than a workout; it is a daily practice with continuous growth, both physically and mentally. Jillian completed the 200 Hour Power Yoga Training at CorePower Yoga in December 2014, and teaches a high energy vinyasa class that leaves her sudents feeling strong and energized! Jillian is continuously grateful for the opportunity to educate her students and see their yoga practices grow!

 

Laura Henderson

Laura seeks to honor the union of yoga on and off the mat in her classes. Her classes are fun, thoughtful, and her flows organize progressive elements and pose sequences toward a peak pose. Laura offers a space that is open and instructional, encouraging students to explore the balance between honoring where they are and challenging themselves. She hopes students leave class with a smile on their face, and a sense that somehow the time on their mat leaves them stronger and more open to face all the beauty, magic, and challenges that life holds. Laura’s first encounter with yoga was in a philosophy book, and it changed her life. Several years later in 2004, yoga became a life-saving practice when Laura lost her brother. Laura took to her mat daily to breathe and be in her body as a respite from her spinning mind and grieving heart. Exploring and building strength in her physical body helped her find deeper strength to live with and through grief. Learning to do poses she never imagined she could, gave her the courage to start her own non-profit to contribute to the change she wants to see in the world (Growing Places Indy, 2009). Still daily, her practice helps her cultivate strength, flexibility, adaptability, forgiveness, compassion, and a comfort with failure and discomfort that empower her continued growth as a mother, spouse, family, friend, co-worker, teacher, human. Laura’s own experiences of the power of yoga in her life are what drive her desire and commitment to teach. Laura completed her 200-hour YTT in vinyasa yoga in 2006, and completed prenatal teacher training in 2007. She has been teaching at Invoke since January 2007. Laura has also done numerous trainings with Off the Mat, Into the World, Embody Love Movement, Y12SR, and CTZNWELL. She continues to explore different styles, teachers, workshops, trainings, books and more, believing that a teacher must always remain a curious and committed student.
