Warm Flow


This class is taught by:

Courtney Sturm

"My classes bring a mix of intelligent sequencing, internal depth, breath work and challenging movement that will leave you feeling both energized and grounded. I inspire my students to practice self awareness, confidence and self love on and off the mat. I promote fluidity through asana, letting go of the mental chatter while encouraging your own experience. I teach to all levels , meeting my students with no judgement I invite them to express themselves through a moving meditation that’s authentic to them."
 
 
Courtney grew up in Wichita, Ks. In 2004 she moved to New York City to pursue her acting career! As a performer with a dance background Courtney was naturally drawn to yoga. She’s been practicing for the past decade and began teaching in 2013 after completing her 200 hour RYT yoga training at Yoga to the people in New York.

Lynn Hancock ~ Studio Owner/Director of Teacher Training

"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.

Suzie Atkin

In 2006, due to the nudging of a good friend, I haphazardly stumbled into a 6-week Kundalini Yoga workshop. I had no idea why we were doing weird breathing exercises and making odd noises, but I was fascinated and intrigued. It was such a different experience from my fast paced, stress filled life where it was easier to keep moving then to sit, be still and be with what was there. And I clearly wasn’t ready. For years afterward I took the harder path: climbing ladders, never stopping, burning out.

And then, as it happens, tragedy struck. As Elizabeth Lesser puts it: “Some of us need a cataclysmic event to find our way toward ‘the center of our own existence’”. So when I finally came back to Yoga, it was with a deep need for healing. And through that healing I have found my Wholeness, which, for me, is finding joy in every bit of this life experience. There is no question that life has difficulty. And yet, through continually cultivating awareness and equanimity, we become able to, as Buddha says, “rest like a giant tree in the midst of it all”. I’m grateful for the beautiful, simple technology of Yoga to expand my perspective and chip away at the calcification of life’s conditioning so I can see clearly and respond from a place of centeredness and love. And it is from this place of love that I humbly share this knowledge and experience with others. Because, truly, we are all connected and in this together. - Namaste.

Off the mat, Suzie enjoys mountain biking and cycling, adventures in the woods, cuddling with her dog, and spending time with family and friends.

 

Kelsi Zahl

"For me, teaching yoga is sharing the art of living free - mind, body and spirit.  Guiding people to the edge of their comfort zones and breathing with them in that space is one of my favorite places to be.  I am a bit of an extreme artist, so I like to go all the way into the asanas and see what happens.  I like to dance on the edge of discomfort and find the breath there...this is how I teach."
Kelsi is a Nebraska native who has spent the last 10 years in California and Arizona pursing an acting career and studying Ashtanga yoga.  When Kelsi is not on the mat, she enjoys writing, singing, being in nature, cooking, making things and laughing.
