Yoga Body Boost*


This class is taught by:

Sarah Walker

"When my yoga journey began, I instantly knew that it was what I was destined to do, and that it would change my life. I was always an active youth, playing many sports, including volleyball during college."
 
"After I lost my athletic activity, I found I was losing my strength, my energy, and mostly myself. I had practiced yoga on and off throughout my 20’s, but didn’t truly grasp the full realm of what yoga offers. In late 2014, I found myself overweight and unhappy in a sedentary lifestyle, I knew I needed a change and nothing seemed to spark that for me. I started regularly working out at the gym, which seemed natural as a former athlete, but it wasn’t enough. I wasn’t changing anything within myself. A few months after that, I was asked if I wanted to attend an intro to yoga class, that happened to be with our very own Lynn Hancock. After that night I was hooked. Something finally clicked. I have continued a regular, almost daily practice since that evening, and not only has it changed my body, but along with that my mind and spirit. I am excited to share with others the love and support that this community offers. Let go, let live, let love!"
 
When Sarah is not on the mat, she enjoys being outdoors, kayaking, cycling, or hiking. Photography, drawing and other artistic activities
keep her busy, as well as lots of DIY projects and home renovations!

"My journey with yoga began in my early 20's as I was experiencing the stress of 'growing up' and had heard how relaxing yoga was. I started practicing in my duplex, with a book and magazines I bought. What I discovered, was a multifaceted practice with many branches, from challenging to peaceful and restorative. Yoga makes space for everyone. With each stage in my life, marriage and motherhood, I always found myself returning to yoga as I always felt grounded and challenged after I practiced. After discovering hot yoga, I was thrilled when Cindee opened Yoga~Story. When I teach, I love the look on someone’s face when they have done a challenging pose for the first time, open a hip, melt into the mat or make a surprising realization about self and ability. When they let go, their struggle becomes their strength."

Lynn enjoys spending time with her husband and son, running, cooking, socializing and enjoying everything that Bentonville has to offer. She began her yoga journey 13 years ago and left the corporate world to become an AFAA certified personal trainer and 200 hour certified yoga instructor.

Benjamin Cary

I have a passion for helping people unlock their full potential through cultivating richer, less restricted, more self-actualized lives.  For a long time my life felt empty, so I tried to fill it with anything that I thought would make me happy; material things for the most part.  Instead, it made me feel overwhelmed, busy, stressed out, overstimulated and anxious.  So I learned how to create space.  With space I have the room to grow, expand, open my heart, and open my mind. In that space wonderful things have come into my life.  Now when I feel empty, I find space, and in the space, I am full.
 
Outside of yoga, Ben likes to play basketball, hike, backpack, and mountain bike. He also enjoys playing the flute and piano.
Yoga Body Boost (or YBB as the regulars call it) starts with a vinyasa flow, adds HIIT in the middle and ends with traditional yoga stretches for a full body challenge and release!  Set to high energy music, this class will make you move and sweat!  We use an interval timer for our HIIT portion so that everyone can do what they can and break when they need to. Modifications and different intensity levels are available for each exercise. Water and mat towel are highly recommended.  Class size limited to 20.
