Vinyasa Yoga - Level 2/3


This class is taught by:

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.

Yvonne Rodriguez

Yvonne’s journey began in 2005 when a friend insisted she attend a Yoga class with her. From that first experience on the mat, her passion for Yoga was born. Since then, she has been drawn towards both the spiritual and physical components of yoga and the constant challenges that it provides her. Yvonne completed her first training in 2009 with Christina Sell. Relocating to Indianapolis from Texas, Yvonne utilized the lessons learned on her mat to aid in her transition to this beautiful city where she completed her second 200 hr training under Eric Bryant and Ahna Hoke. Yoga has become a fundamental way of life for her, allowing an outlet to cope with one's daily struggles. Yvonne believes that anyone can benefit from practicing yoga whether it be to heal a physical ailment or provide guidance for one’s life toward a positive transformation and enlightenment. Her style cultivates a playful environment where movement with breath and the yoking of body, mind, and spirit are encouraged.
