“Yoga is my rock in this crazy world. Whether it’s 5 deep breaths when I’m stressed or a powerful class filled with asanas, yoga helps to keep me balanced both physically and emotionally. I focus on listening to my body and what it needs whether it’s a powerful class filled with asanas or a more slow, restorative one.
I recently completed my 200 hour teacher training course at Bliss Bliss Bliss with Joanne Vandenhengel and am so happy and blessed to be able to share the gift that keeps on giving that is yoga.”
Her specialties are: Yin poses within a Hatha teaching style.
Emma is teaching Full Moon Salutations once a month. October 8th, 7-8pm.
“When I moved to West Virginia for law school and found that yoga was a great outlet for releasing tension and stress. I would leave class feeling calm and confident, I was hooked. A year ago I finally made the leap and started yoga teacher training which has helped deepen my own personal yoga practice. Yoga is no longer a class I go to, but a practice I try to incorporate in my everyday life.”
Her specialties are: Power Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.
Emily is teaching Power Yoga Thursdays 8-9am.
“I believe that learning to listen and respect your body is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Some days you will feel ready to take on the world. Others, you need time to restore and balance. The key is learning how best to honor these for yourself.”

“I began to know yoga as not just a physical practice, but also a mental and spiritual practice as well. Creating a mind/body connection instills peace and keeps me anchored in the present moment. As I begin my teaching journey, I want to teach from this place of love for the body and mind. I will guide my students to work their bodies safely and with love as they center their minds and learn to be anchored in the now.”
Her specialties are: Hatha yoga, power yoga, vinyasa yoga, gentle yoga
Rebecca is teaching Vinyasa Flow Fridays 9-10am.
“I have recently discovered the transformative power of yoga. I’ve always worked with special populations within the educational system. I spent five years in the Bronx, NY teaching English at a high- needs high school then I moved back home to Morgantown, WV. I’ve been teaching English, Art, and a course I call Movement Arts at the Alternative Learning Center for at risk high school students. The movement arts class started with a simple yoga DVD. I started noticing the changes within my students and myself but we were ready to further explore the benefits of yoga. I began yoga teacher training with Joanne VandenHengel through 3rd St. Yoga .
The journey with Joanne has been life altering. Through this process I found the healing power of yoga, the ability to come into stillness, and the desire to be fully present in the moment, with an open heart and open mind. As part of my journey, I wish to share the healing and transformative power of yoga with others. I’m currently training with the Veterans Yoga Project on Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery. This yoga program was developed specifically for veterans recovering from post traumatic stress and other difficulties. Through the Veterans Yoga Project I hope to further share my practice and love of the yoga journey with others.”
Her specialties are: Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery Yoga, Working with At-Risk Youth, Special Populations
