Lunch Time Flow


This class is taught by:

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.

Camas Maroney

“I have overcome many health hurdles in my life. Having had 12 surgeries by age 12 and spending 1 year in high school in a wheelchair, I struggled to find a form of exercise that would work for me. Four years ago I moved to NW Arkansas and landed at Yoga Story with studio owner Cindee Joslin. Cindee inspired me to really practice Yoga. I soon learned that Yoga was the answer for me. Today I find “Peace and Strength” in my everyday practice and teaching. Through Yoga I love inspiring others to overcome their health challenges. I teach our students to cultivate strength in the body and a calming presence to the mind.”
 
When off the mat Camas enjoys volunteering at her kids’ school, spending time with friends, reading, gardening, cooking and traveling. She is a 200 hr certified Yoga Instructor from Yoga Story 200 Hour Teacher Training and an RYT with Yoga Alliance. Camas furthered her education with additional training by Ray Long, Jessica O'Keefe and Jaimie Elmer.

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.

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.

 

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
This is a 50 minute class.  WARM ~ A slower vinyasa flow similar to hot class but with less intensity and heat. A good break in the middle of the day that won’t leave you a sweaty mess. You will be destressed and ready for the rest of your day. Great for all levels.
