HEATED Vinyasa Yoga - Level 2/3


This class is taught by:

Cheryl Milton

Cheryl began her Yoga practice in 2001, after the birth of her first child Addison. At the time yoga was introduced to Cheryl she had just left a high-paced sales job to become a full time mom and was entering her seventh year teaching group fitness. Cheryl received her yoga training in Coastal Virginia. She trained with a focus in the tradition of the Hot Yoga Series and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Cheryl was the Director and Lead Teacher for the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program for Zen Hot Yoga Studio Virginia Beach, as well as the Founder and Lead Teacher for Passion Yoga School’s 2014 Yoga Teacher Training Program. She now leads Invoke's Yoga Alliance Certified 100 & 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Invoke Wellness Center. Cheryl draws inspiration to teach and practice from her busy daily life: approaching her mat being open to explore, accept, reaffirm her passion for life and cultivate peace. 

Erin Morgan

Erin’s love of dance was what first drew her to the lines of energy and fluid movement of yoga. Like so many, the physical practice is where she began her journey. In college she retreated to her mat as a way to manage stress and get the creative juices flowing. Erin became more immersed in yoga during the time she spent living in California. During this time she began to feel the pull to share the healing power of yoga with others. She completed her 200hr training under the guidance of Carmen Fitzgibbon. Erin truly believes that yoga has the power to change lives. Her vinyasa teaching is a lighthearted blend of strength, breath, affirmation and flow. She hopes that students leave practice more aware of their own awesomeness, with the freedom to think, act, move and love with more authenticity.

Megan Zirkelbach

Megan began her yoga journey after having her daughter in 2006. She quickly realized yoga was more than just a physical exercise. It began to help her with the stress and anxiety of life, when she stepped off the mat she had inner peace that she couldn't explain. Megan has been practicing everyday since. During a meditation workshop she heard the instructor say "once you see, you'll eventually know" and from that point on Megan knew teaching yoga would be a part of her path. She received her 200 hrs YTT in April of 2014 at Sanctuary, Mind, Body, and Spirit under Tom and Daphne Larkin in Nashville, Tn. Her practice and teaching is a mix of vinyasa flow and the power of ashtanga yoga. She loves handstands and inversions but appreciates the beauty and fundamentals of all poses that are at the core of building strength and balance.

Jillian McAfee

Jillian McAfee, 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!

 

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.

Stephanie Martinez

Stephanie attended her first yoga class in 2009. She always used exercise as a way of dealing with the stresses of college and work life, and she quickly fell in love with yoga. Yoga allowed her to deal with anxiety, while gaining breath awareness and strengthening her body. Stephanie completed her 200 hour teacher training in August 2014 at Invoke Studio under Ahna Hoke and Chuck Crosby. Stephanie teaches vinyasa classes that focus on connecting the breath with each movement. Stephanie believes that yoga should be approached with lightheartedness and offers classes that will calm the mind and open the heart.

Kevin Lemons

Kevin first discovered yoga in a university course, when his curiosity led him to an immediate experience with asana that forever changed his approach to physical fitness and spirituality. Since then, Kevin has had nearly two decades of hatha yoga practice, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area. He studied under Bija Pretzel France, who taught him the importance of dedicated training and channeling energy in order to safely push boundaries of the body and mind. Kevin has since graduated from Invoke’s teacher training under the guidance of Ahna Hoke, who has helped him to refine his focus on alignment and further explore yogic philosophy. He is drawn to the dynamic, varying flow of vinyasa classes, and teaches with an emphasis on body placement and linking breath to movement while exploring new poses. He believes that yoga should be at times challenging, restorative, invigorating and calming, but always empowering and life-enhancing.
