    DoYogaWithMe is thrilled to welcome Sarada Jagannath to our teaching roster.

    About Sarada: "Yoga came into my life when I was young. I was born and brought up in India and yoga is a way of life in my family. My grandfather was my first Guru (teacher). He taught us how to do joints movements, asana, breathing techniques and meditation. As we lived in a joint family, we all met in the morning and practiced yoga together. Yoga practice was like a ritual in the house every day, each morning without a holiday. I was young when I started to practice and did so mostly in a playful way. Initially I loved the asana part but was not a fan of breathing and meditation. Since I respected my grandfather and saw my parents, uncles and cousins practicing every morning, I used to do the same.

    As I grew older my reason to go to the practice became effortless. Early in my teens I realized the power of the breath and grew to appreciate the philosophy behind this holistic wisdOM. 

    I completed my teachers training from SVYASA and Sivananda Yoga. My intention as a teacher is to share with the community my experiences of the union and the meeting point of body, mind and breath.

    Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize,

    Be Good, Do Good, Be Kind, Be Compassionate,

    Adapt, Adjust, Accommodate,

    Be Good, Do Good, Be Kind is the Highest Sadhana

    Be Good, Do Good, Be Kind is the Highest Yoga

    I teach Classical Hatha Yoga and Sivananda Yoga. In my classes I try to bring in the wholesomeness of the eight fold yoga practice for everybody and everybody.

    In my personal life, yoga always helps me to understand that the only thing that is permanent is the impermanence. So live in the present!"

    Pranayama: Adding Rhythmatic Life Force with Control
    Pranayama Yoga | 30 min | Intermediate I
    Instructor: Sarada Jagannath

    Join Sarada in this pranayama practice to learn four different types of ancient breathings techniques from hatha yoga and make it your way of life.

    Gentle Yoga | 23 min | Beginner I 
    Instructor: Melissa Krieger
    Start your day off right with this relaxed morning stretch and meditation with Melissa. It's a short, full body beginner class that will get you moving, centered and ready to take on the day!

    Crazy Eights
    Vinyasa Yoga | 57 min | Intermediate III
    Instructor: Josh Chen
    This vinyasa flow class with Josh focuses on hip strengthening and core strength. Prepare to move through a playful and strong power sequence that builds to astavakrasana (also known as eight angle pose), a challenging arm balance. Note: You will need two blocks for this practice.
    Tapas and Transformation
    Vinyasa Yoga | 36 min | Intermediate III
    Instructor: Fiji McAlpine
    This vigorous flow with Fiji stokes the inner fire with core work and challenging asanas. The inner fire helps us shed that which holds us back and gives us courage to step into something new.
    Jivamukti Compass
    Jivamukti | 47 min | Intermediate III
    Instructor: Jonni-Lyn Friel
    Join Jonni-Lyn in this steady and strong flow as she guides you through a few hip openers; camel pose (ustrasana), reclined hero pose (supta virasana) and headstand. Once your hips are happy and open, you will spend a bit of time exploring compass pose (parivrtta surya yantrasana).


    Yoga for Kids 6 to 12: Wake Up Yoga
    Yoga for Kids | 33 min | Beginner I
    Instructor: Alyssa Jean Klazek
    Wake Up Yoga with Alyssa Jean is a sequence to shake the cobwebs from sleeping and create a renewed positive energy for everyone in the family. Beginning from a sleepy child’s pose, we make our way up to standing postures and sun salutations, ending with some restorative postures to leave the body feeling balanced and ready for the day. 
    Yoga for Sleepy Heads
    Yin and Yin/Yang Yoga | 54 min | Beginner II
    Instructor: Nyk Danu
    Not a morning person? Check out this yin to yang practice where Nyk flips the order of a traditional yoga class. She begins the class lying down, then moves you through seated poses into kneeling pose, and finishes the class in a standing posture ready to begin the day.
    Yoga for Hamstring Rehabilitation
    Hatha Yoga | 33 min | Intermediate I
    Instructor: Rachel Scott
    Got a hamstring injury? Yoga is known as a flexibility practice, but what happens when you overstretch your hamstrings? Specifically designed for students who are working with a pulled hamstring or hamstring tendinopathy (often called, “yoga butt”), this class with Rachel will functionally strengthen your hamstrings and support your pathway to recovery. It is also an excellent class for students looking to cultivate lower body strength in general.

    Power Yoga | 57 min | Intermediate II
    Instructor: Tracey Noseworthy
    Unwind, turn inward and together we will discover a little more about ourselves. In this power yoga practice with Tracey, we move through hip openers, honor the relationship between our hips and hamstrings, and playfully unlock the habitual layers of movement.
