VINYASA YOGA


This class is taught by:

Deb Kleinendorst

Deb began teaching exercise during the fitness craze of the 80’s all decked out in spandex, leg warmers and high tops! She was an “aerobics” instructor first and has continued to build fitness into her life over the years.

Today the foundation of all Deb's teaching is Pilates. Pilates teaches balance, grace, strength and mind-body awareness. It also teaches people to move their bodies in a healthy and safe manner, both on and off their mats.

My certifications include Stott Pilates Mat, Stott Reformer trained and Schwinn Indoor Cycling. I am also trained in Stott Pilates Special Injuries and Populations and Stability Chair. I am currently taking the Stott Cadillac training with a goal of becoming Comprehensively Certified in the near future. I teach Pilates Mat, Reformer and related equipment classes, Barre, Ride, Trx, Kettlebells and Short Burst Training. I have been teaching at Center since it began and am deeply grateful for this beautiful community of students, teachers and friends.

My favorite quote inspired by my mentor Christina Andersen is “Life is not about finding yourself: life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw.

Christina Andersen

If your life was a soundtrack what would your theme song be?
Life is a Highway

What 5 words would your friends use to describe you?
Steady, resourceful, driven, logical, and funny

What is your teaching style / philosophy?
Classes should offer intelligent and creative sequencing so people will stay engaged, feel successful and become strong, but perhaps more importantly, each class should deliver a message that inspires.

What kind of students will love your teaching style?
People who like to laugh; people who want to become better versions of themselves; people who want a great workout but would rather poke out their eyeballs than grind out tedious and repetitive rounds of the same few moves hour after hour.

Who in the yoga world continues to inspire, mentor, and teach you?
I love the steady consistency and deep wisdom of Rod Stryker and am inspired by the flowery language and mythology of Sianna Sherman. I would also love to meet and take training with Maty Ezraty.

Jenny Erickson


If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
Resourceful

How did Yoga come into your life?
I started taking classes at a time in my life when my body needed to move and my mind needed to be quiet.

 

What is your mission, your vision, what yoga means to you?

Yoga is the beautiful dance of mental, physical, and emotional choreographed together to teach me, strengthen me, and challenge me to be more than what I thought possible. My vision would be for others to discover that same thought process for themselves.

 

The word vinyasa means “flow” and this class is a beautiful way to get your body, mind and spirit connected, deeply inspired and into that “flow state” where you can pursue your potential in life.
 
Our instructors are creative and strategic, organizing your practice in a well-thought and purposeful way so that you get more than a physical workout out of these precious 50-minutes. You know you need it, so let’s flow.
