Marcia Hudgel

Yoga (Re) Connect & Flow Thursday’s 6:30-7:45 pm.

Marcia has been intrigued by yoga ever since opening up an Iyengar book in her college apartment in the early 90’s. She loves all styles of yoga and especially loves the (re)connection she feels through the practice, not only with her body, mind & spirit, but also that feeling of connection with all beings. Marcia received her teaching certification in February 2010 from her teacher, Marni Task in Cleveland, Ohio. She enjoys helping others get to that same point of reconnection through yoga. She teaches a variety of styles, from flow to restoratives to mindfulness…even yoga nidra, all are infused with some breath work, yoga philosophy and usually a little bit of laughter.

Natalie Kasmar

Alignment Based Flow Thursday’s 8:30-9:30 am

Natalie started her yoga journey back in 2000 when a friend suggested that it might help alleviate her chronic lower back pain.

Not knowing where the practice would actually take her (when she stepped into that first studio) she found that yoga not only took care of her lower back pain, yoga also grounded her emotionally, made her more confident, helped her posture and allowed her for the first time to feel really compassion and humility for herself.

A decade later Natalie decided it was time she dove deeper into the study and practice of yoga. She moved to San Francisco CA in 2010. She attended and completed a 500 hour yoga teacher program through Yogaworks and has been teaching the Yogaworks method since 2011. During her 500 hr training she had the opportunity to meet and study under Gary Kraftsow, the founder of viniyoga in the west. She found this concept of viniyoga to be an essential piece of her practice and now she would like to share the viniyoga style with you.
