Kori Jones
    Kori has been practicing and incorporating Yoga in her life for over a decade. In that time she has developed skills from some of the best instructors Austin has to offer. Through her journey she has studied various practice styles including: Bikram, Baptiste Power yoga, Vinyasaa Flow, Yin, and Restorative. In 2012 she completed her 200 hr RYT with Gioconda Parker, ERYT-500. Since then Kori has gone on to receive her certification as a Relax and Renew trainer with author and world renowned teacher, Judith Hanson Lasater, and greatly enjoys teaching Restorative yoga. Additionally, she received her certification through Warriors at Ease to teach meditation and yoga to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, and trauma (including emotional and physical- loss of limbs). She is excited to have the opportunity to volunteer at the Austin Vet Center, teaching yoga to combat veterans in an ongoing yoga class, and also works regularly with widows and widowers of fallen soldiers through the American Widow Project. After experiencing three 14 month deployments in her own family, she understands the need for community and having a safe place to explore and connect with one’s inner self. It is her intention as a yoga teacher to offer tools that help students connect to their own inner resource, enhance personal resilience, and empower them to regulate their body, mind, and spirit through awareness and self-care. Kori shares her life with her husband, a retired Army National Guard veteran, and their two beautiful children. She is also a bench jeweler and represents her passion for adornment through her company I-Rok Gems.

A dynamic vinyasa flow with emphasis on the connection of breath with mindful movement. Class is a continuous flow of movement from posture to posture to warm, detoxify and open the body, mixed with longer-held postures to build strength and endurance in both body and mind. Culminating with a delicious Savasana to allow the benefits of the practice to take root. All Levels

Julie Westervelt
    Julie Westervelt is a 200 hour RYT trained in the Vinyasa method. I like my yoga varied, spicy, loud, passionate, sweaty, funny, grounding, inspiring, and strong. Just like life! I like for my body to feel completely wrung out upon completion. My signature style allows you to connect and reflect on your strength while standing in long-held poses. I believe that it is in stillness where the real work is done. In Yoga Basics, we cover the foundational elements of yoga, drawing from many styles. It may be basic, but there is nothing easy about it! I've worked with kiddos to grandparents and everyone in between, but my focus is athletes. I have developed specific yoga training for runners, cyclists, footballers and basketball players. Yoga can complement and elevate athletic training to promote flexibility and prevent injury. I especially enjoy teaching individuals who are strong, driven and tend to have great body awareness, just new to the practice of yoga. I enjoy throwing the spark and watching it ignite a passion. I love to create just the right music to enhance the sequences that I design. While I enjoy teaching yoga, I am a student first. I am incredibly grateful for the radical teachers in Austin who continue to inspire me and blow my mind. Yoga consumes me and I truly believe that the practice holds the ability to open us to the beauty that the world has to offer.

In this class, sequences are specifically designed to liberate the spine and joints and work the muscles. As we hold poses for longer we give the body time to unfold, build stamina, and increase endurance. Find your strength with yoga and allow yourself the time to learn about yoga postures and their impact on the body, breath, and mind. BEG-All levels
