Vinyasa Yoga EXPRESS - Level 1/2


This class is taught by:

Michelle Finch

Michelle Finch believes in the power of a practice rooted deeply in the fundamentals & mindfulness. She genuinely embraces the notion that an open heart & mind coupled with the alignment of body & breath can be profoundly healing to the mind, body & spirit of every yoga practitioner. Whether attending her specialty Yin yoga classes or the balancing Yang (Slow Flow), you will find her classes to be powerful & moving for the entirety of your being. Michelle’s light hearted, yet nurturing approach to teaching is guaranteed to elevate your spirit and place a lasting smile on your face. Michelle was first introduced to the practice of yoga in 2003 and although it took eight years for these teachings to truly sink in for her, looking back she can see this foundation, laid in her early 20’s, provided the stepping off point for her to realize the multitude of benefits yoga offers, both on & off the mat. Having personally felt its healing qualities, the rounded practice of yoga has aided Michelle in turning toward a healthier lifestyle, relieving her dis-ease of anxiety & depression, as well as overcoming a personal battle with addiction. After nearly 10 years in corporate human resources, she found herself being called away from the business world & in 2012 made the decision to re-dedicate her life to the path of yoga & has not looked back. Although Michelle is an ERYT-200 RYT-500 certified teacher, she believes that one should always seek further wisdom from the teachers that have come before her. Therefore, following the path of continued learning, she is humbled to be currently studying with the Insight Yoga Institute under the loving guidance of Sarah & Ty Powers. On top of her yogic studies, she is also currently enrolled in the highly acclaimed Transformative Leadership MA program with the prestigious California Institute of Integral Studies. When not teaching, Michelle spends her time outdoors (cycling, hiking, kayaking, etc.), traveling, enjoying time with her friends/family & sharing the beautiful journey of life with her husband, DJ.

Jole Kelley

Jole stumbled upon yoga after showing up too late to take her weekly Pilates class. She was immediately hooked and has never looked back. Jole completed the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Invoke Studio where she now teaches. She works to dispel the rumors that yoga is light on fitness and heavy on meditation and chanting – the very things that kept her from taking a yoga class for so many years! She emphasizes the enjoyment aspect of the practice as well as strength building. She hopes all will see that yoga makes you stronger physically and calms an anxiety-ridden mind. Also, being able to touch your toes is not a prerequisite to any yoga class. It’s about opening your heart and body.

Danielle Vetter

Danielle started practicing yoga to compliment distance running in 2009. She loved the peace, stillness, and whole-body relaxation yoga brought. Danielle completed her 200 Hour Yoga Training in Indianapolis in January of 2015. Her classes are upbeat, athletic, and connect breath work with a strong physical practice. She hopes her classes will offer students a chance to find strength, a deeper understanding of their bodies, and balance and peace in their lives.

Off the mat, you can find Danielle hiking, boxing, or rocking out to a concert at White River State Park. Danielle holds a BS and MPA from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers).

Vinyasa Yoga EXPRESS - Level 1/2 - THIS CLASS IS THE SAME FORMAT AS THE REGULAR 1/2 CLASS BUT 55MIN IN LENGTH. This class is for all levels regardless of how long you've been practicing as you can never know the basics too well. Whether you are a seasoned and dedicated yogi, a beginner who is brand new or an advanced beginner who has been coming to basics classes but does not feel quite confident enough to move up to an All Levels format, this class offers multiple benefits for all. Although this class will move with a flow it will be a slower flow so the student has ample time to move into and out of the pose effectively keeping the stability that is often lost when the flow becomes too fast. You will enjoy a great selection of poses with fun and interesting sequences, multiple alignment cues but also extended periods of silence once in the pose to allow reconnection with your breath, body and spirit. Come to breathe, move, open and smile. "The deeper you go, the higher you fly so come on!" John Lennon
