Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sherry Fitzgerald

"I have been a health and fitness enthusiast all my life; actively taking and teaching various exercise classes since college. I started practicing yoga at home 20 years ago to help relieve neck and shoulder stiffness caused by
my working in an office all day. Little did I know how much more yoga would bring to my life! Not only did yoga release muscle tension, but I felt stronger and calmer which enabled me to deal with stress better. Yoga provides me a sense of balance! As a result, I have been practicing, discovering and learning about yoga ever since. I value how
yoga brings me fully present in the moment, while challenging me to increase my strength both physically and mentally - cultivating the mind-body connection. Helping others find their path and strength within yoga is what motivates me to teach. Favorite quotes to live by: “Live what you love.” & “You are stronger than you think.”
 
When Sherry is not on the yoga mat, she's reading a good book, spending time with friends or outdoors hiking or biking the trails of Northwest Arkansas and experiencing the adventures her two golden retrievers provide on daily walks.

Rachel Malo

"Earlier in my life I fractured a vertebrae.  I recovered to return to an active lifestyle, but still had residual pain and limited mobility. Then a life-changing mountain bike accident left me with debilitating back and hip pain. Through these traumas, I found yoga and learned to take a holistic approach to my own healing. This has given me a sincere desire to help others overcome their own personal challenges, whatever they may be."
 
Off the mat Rachel enjoys walking,hiking, reading, meditation and spending time with her family.

Anne Suarez

"As an avid runner and fitness enthusiast, I walked into my first yoga class while on vacation in Colorado. I was curious to experience what yoga might be like. Could I become more flexible? Would I be able to move into the physical postures as instructed? It was during this yoga class within full view of Pike's Peak that something clicked from within my body--I felt connected in a profound way, breath, body, mind and spirit. As my yoga practice grew, I knew that I wanted to learn more about yoga. In 2014 I received my 200 HR RYT. Ever the student, I completed my 500 HR RYT with an emphasis on Yoga Therapy Level 1. Further studies include: Balanced Athlete Level One Certification, Yoga Nidra, Yoga of the Heart--Cardiac and Cancer Certification, and LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training for Depression and Anxiety. I am grateful to the many wonderful teachers and students that I have worked with--the gift of yoga is meant to be shared."
When she's not on her mat, Anne enjoys spending time with her family and Westie, traveling, exercising, hiking, reading and being a foodie. Walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela is her next major endeavor and dream. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” - Rumi
