Vinyasa Yoga

This class is taught by:

Betsy Kelsik

Betsy discovered yoga nearly 20 years ago in Tucson, Arizona under the guidance of Darren Rhodes, and has been dedicated to pursuing her yogic studies ever since. For Betsy, yoga is all about connection. She believes yoga helps us to connect to our true nature, which is loving, joyful, and limitless. She received her 200 hour certification through the Yandara Yoga institute in 2009 and has studied a wide variety of yoga traditions and meditations including Anusara, Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative, Kundalini, and Pre-natal. You can expect creative sequences, easy to follow alignment cues, hands on adjustments, and the occasional astrology report. Her main goal in teaching yoga is to help students connect with the intrinsic grace and abundance that resides within so that they may find more fulfillment and joy in their lives both on and off the mat.

Suzy Ganer

Suzy feels honored to be able to hold space for her yoga students to connect to their minds, bodies, and spirits. Suzy aims to share her experiences and understandings of yoga in a supportive, light-hearted, and uplifting way in each of her classes. Studying from a variety of yoga teachers and lineages has made Suzy a self-proclaimed "yoga mutt", incorporating a variety of styles. Suzy looks to the Yoga Sutras, lunar phases, chakras, and everyday life experiences for inspiration for her classes. When you walk into Suzy's class, expect intelligent and inspiring sequencing, a bit of rock and roll, some sweaty fun, hands-on assists, and an overall great and compassionate vibe. When not "on the mat", Suzy works as a counselor at Teton Behavior Therapy and also can be found jamming out at concerts, laughing with her friends, and soaking up the beautiful nature of Jackson and the surrounding area.
Vinyasa yoga explores both traditional and creative breath to movement sequences. Music plays an integral roll with a varying playlist to expand the practice. Expect to explore alignment, breath awareness, hands on assists, deep exploration of postures followed by relaxation. Vinyasa Yoga is suitable for all levels of practitioners, however prior experience or previous attendance of a Pursue Yoga class is strongly advised. Little class time will be dedicated to "how to" get in and out of postures.
