This class is taught by:

Hailey Raley

A graduate of Midtown Yoga's 2014, 200-hr Vinyasa teacher training, Hailey comes to us with fresh eyes and a contagious, enthusiastic energy.
 
Yoga peeked an interest to her in 2010 when she was working as a pole fitness instructor. Having a gymnastic background, she was naturally drawn to the balance of strength and flexibility found in the practice. However, her interest for yoga became a love for yoga when Hailey started to notice the healing qualities of yoga in her body and mind. Prior to her focus on pole fitness, she played rugby for 7 years.

"Yoga changed my life physically. I had a lot of wear and tear after playing a high impact sport for so many years. I came to yoga searching for an increase in flexibility for pole fitness. In addition to, I found a way to gently strengthen, repair, and rebuild my stabilizer muscles that I had damaged and neglected for so long. I am stronger than ever! I'd also like to add, Teacher training was such an eye opening experience for me. I experienced the physical benefits of yoga on my own but getting my RYT-200 showed me how to find balance in my body, mind,and spirit; on and off the mat. That is what yoga is all about and I am so excited to share this experience with everyone."

Grace Harwood

A classically trained dancer for more than 20 years, Grace found that yoga filled the void that dance left in her heart and spirit. A wife, mother of three and present owner and director of Midtown Yoga, she values all aspects of yoga both on and off the mat. She is a certified E-RYT 200, and her desire for more playfulness and beauty of flow drove her to train in aerial yoga as well as to receive certification in AcroYoga. Her study of Ayurveda, through the Himalayan Institute, has opened her eyes to the world of self love, care and healing. Lifelong Memphian, Grace is committed to the continued growth of Midtown Yoga as well as to the entire Memphis Yoga community!

AcroYoga blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of therapeutics, and the dynamic power of acrobatics.  These three lineages form the foundation of a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness.  Building upon the framework of cultivating skillful partnership, AcroYoga provides a vehicle to explore positive and supportive relationships with an emphasis on honest, clear and compassionate communication.  The practice inherently creates a strong bond and fosters a sense of community among the participants.  This class is partner work including a base, a flyer and a spotter.  Our aim is to provide a safe area to practice and to play.  No partner necessary.  No experience necessary.  Open level.
