Teacher Spotlight – Meet Phyllis Adams

Tell us a little about your Yoga journey?  I began my yoga journey in 2001.  I was on a fitness path and observed that there was a greater picture and path to follow. I went to NC School of Yoga for initial certification and from there have explored and studied under various teachers and systems of yoga over the past 15 years.

What makes you feel most alive?  Discovering new places! Family, friends, and dogs!

What do you love most about Yoga?  What do hope to inspire in others?  I love the aspect of yoga that allows you to move and explore through joy and inspiration from within. I have learned through the practice of Yoga and by sharing my passion that other’s were on board and it has blossomed into a supportive community of likeminded bright souls! My self esteem, self confidence, and general sense of well being has been nurtured through my practice. I hope to be a guide to other’s on their yogic path, and as a teacher I am totally inspired by my students!

What is your favorite quote?  “Wage peace by practicing kindness”

Favorite Yoga pose?  Half Moon

How has Yoga changed your life?  Yoga has changed my life in the sense that I have been inspired to seek purpose, self awareness, and trust.

What do you think are some of the biggest challenges people face when they begin to practice Yoga?  To show up without expectations and enjoy the ride!

What do you want people to take away from your classes?  I want students to leave with a sense of feeling accomplished whatever that is for them on any given day!  Sometimes that is by simply showing up! I love smiles and have a playful approach to my practice and style of teaching.

What tools do you think are essential for starting a Yoga practice?  Attitude is as important as a willingness to explore and be receptive to new things!

Client Spotlight – Meet Lori Roberts

“Pilates has given me a longer and leaner look.”

                   Meet the fabulous Lori Roberts IMG_0012 

So why Pilates Lori? What keeps you coming back? I needed something different. I “grew up” in the gym and being in my 40s I was ready for my body to look different. Pilates has given me a longer and leaner look. It challenges me every time I hit the mat. It also feels awesome when I finally nail something I’ve been trying to tackle after months and months. The teachers here are welcoming, supportive, encouraging, completely nonjudgemental and really have always challenged me along the way.

You spent time working in the fitness industry, tell us more…. I actually have a Masters degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Corporate Fitness and Community Wellness. I started out as an athletic trainer and migrated into my of the wellness field. I was a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Certified Group Exercise Leader. Why not, right? I was lucky enough to work for the U.S. Armed Forces in Greece and train some top U.S. and NATO personnel. What an awesome opportunity on so many levels. Quick fun fact… I was lucky enough to work with Billy Blanks a couple of times and even get a personal training session in with him at one point. He was the great equalizer in so many ways. Haha. A great man and a story best told over a drink 😀

Tell us about your first class at studioVIBE…. I was nervous as @&?!#!! I was used to being the fit girl that was setting the pace that I had to embrace and accept just being the girl trying to survive her first mat class and praying Missy didn’t scare me off😀. She obviously didn’t and I was hooked!

You have been coming regularly, what classes are you taking? My goal is 2-3 classes a week with a mixture of Mat and Tower. I was even able to get in a Reformer/Chair tutorial one night so that’s on my radar next. If I’m in town I don’t miss class. I’ve even been known to pack my yoga mat on my travels IMG_0013

What do you do when you are not at studioVIBE? I really don’t do too much. My fiancé and I play some golf… paddle board… a dabble of yoga here and there. Most of my serious work is really done within the walls of StudioVibe.

Any last minute words for someone who is contemplating getting started? Literally, just take the first step. That’s the hardest part. You most likely won’t set the world on fire at first but just hang in there, go at your own pace, and I promise the hard work will pay off.  Also, just wanted to add that I have met so many great people IN the classes.  It’s like we all have each other’s back and best interest in mind – I LOVE it!

Class Description:
This four-part series taught by Alyson, Rachel & Thea is designed for those new to yoga, as well as for experienced practitioners who wish to gain a deeper, embodied understanding of the foundational poses and principles of yoga.
Class size will be small to create a supportive environment and ensure individual attention from our team of teachers. Each session will build on the one before and will include practice, discussion, and relaxation. After completing this foundations series, you will feel prepared to confidently explore the wealth of ongoing group yoga classes offered by StudioVIBE.

Foundation 1 – Grounding ~ Dig deeply into those poses designed to connect us to the earth, develop stability, and utilize effective alignment. We will lay the groundwork for attentively and safely expanding our physical practice, honing body awareness, and utilizing the power of the breath. We will also provide a meditation primer to cultivate mindfulness.

Foundation 2 – Climbing ~ With our roots now firmly planted, we will extend our reach to lengthen and strengthen the body. Through a series of heart opening “sun” poses complimented by calming “moon” poses we will release tension, utilize our core strength, and balance the flow of energy through our body. A focus of this session will be consciously elevating our practice while not compromising the integrity learned in the first foundation class.

Foundation 3 – Spiraling ~ Invite your body to embrace the nourishing and detoxifying practice of twists. We will systematically integrate the components of safe twists to provide our body maximum nourishment for the spine and
internal organs. Seated, standing, balancing, and reclining twists will wind their way into our time together as we bring careful attention to this portion of our practice.

Foundation 4 – Emerging ~ With our foundation established, we will enjoy a culminating practice designed to integrate and celebrate all we have learned to date. In designing today’s class, your team of teachers will weave together your requests for favorite poses, breathing practices, and meditations to create a special practice that will leave you feeling better than you can imagine. Come ready to smile!
