Invigor8 Meditation Monday!


This class is taught by:

Sarah Helt

Sarah Helt, E-RYT200
Certified Yoga Instructor + Accessible Yoga Ambassador

My yoga journey began at 18 when a friend suggested I try a class at the local gym. It happened to be an Ashtanga primary series and from that day forward I was hooked! However, it wasn’t until my last year of college, when my clowning and movement studies professor asked if I would assist his summer yoga intensive, that I started to consider teaching.

My initial 200 hour yoga training was in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia in multi-style vinyasa, viniyoga, and incorporated thai massage. I began my yoga career in Chicago, Illinois where, in my first two years, I was lucky enough to help open five different boutique yoga spaces. Primarily a power vinyasa and restorative-yin yoga teacher, my life changed completely when I was contacted by a high profile triathlon coach to work with her disabled athletes. I was introduced to the true therapeutic benefits of yoga for recovery, pain management, and trauma. I work with students who have, and have had, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, visual impairments, spinal chord injury, chronic pain, and/or nerve damage. Last year I partnered with the Accessible Yoga Movement in Santa Barbara to become one of the organization’s first Accessible Yoga Ambassadors.

I approach life with an open heart and zero expectations; as I believe you should approach every yoga class. I am overjoyed to share my practice with you. Come play!

Janelle Johnson

Janelle, originally from Mystic, CT, took her first yoga class in Fulham, London in 2007. Although, she found it difficult to get through her first class, something keep drawing her back into the practice. She practiced yoga through injuries, marathon training and 2 babies. It kept her balanced in all aspects of her life and taught her to breathe through difficult poses, inside and out of the yoga room.

In early 2012, she received her 200 RYT training in Ormond Beach, Florida and has been teaching since, in the Seattle area. She has continued her education with a 500 RYT program and Yoga Sculpt. She has a true passion for her students whom inspire her everyday and looks forward to assisting your yoga journey/practice, any way that she can, to the best of her ability. Janelle leads a strong, steady and energetic yoga class. She can not wait to meet you!

Milena Sarian

Milena developed a dedicated yoga practice in 2005 where she began to immediately notice the positive influence it brought to her life. She decided to leave her full time career in marketing to teach yoga full time in 2007 in order to share this gift with others.

Milena is an experienced yoga instructor who has had opportunities in teaching various styles of yoga and fitness including Hot Yoga, Power, Sculpt, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga and Restorative Yoga. She teaches in the Los Angeles area and has a wide range of students of all levels and backgrounds. "My goal as a teacher is to inspire my students to understand the mind-body-soul connection and to bring more joy into life."

Milena brings a light-hearted and compassionate quality to her fun, yet intense classes.

Carli Kline

Native to Sunny Southern California, Carli grew up living an active lifestyle. It wasn’t long before she developed a love for yoga sculpt. Carli started teaching Yoga Sculpt 2 years ago and has been practicing for 5 year. As yoga transformed her life, she wanted to inspire others with its gift. Yoga’s teachings have brought connection between mind and body awareness, peace of mind, and the feeling of being grounded into her life. Always open to growing and connecting, Carli continues to inspire, be inspired by her students and practice.

Soha Panah

I grew up Orange County, California and at a very young age I found
myself loving movement and exercise. I was enrolled in every type of
activity and loved it. After undergoing scoliosis surgery, I turned to
dance because it was one of the few activities I was "allowed" to do.
After putting on my first pair of jazz shoes it was love at first
pirouette. I loved the energy, the music and the release I was able
to feel after every rehearsal. I was lucky enough to dance
competitively on a team for 5 years. I went on to teach Turbo Kickboxing (think high energy choreography) which allowed me to feel a release that I missed so much.

Now, I teach Yoga barre, Yoga Sculpt and Power 1 Yoga.
All very different, but all of which I love. Each practice brings out a different intensity and release. I received my 200 hour RYT certification with Hot 8 Yoga, being one of the best experience to date.

In my classes, we aspire to inspire each other. We inhale strength as we exhale fear.
We commit. We Show Up. We push each other to find strength. To go beyond our normal limitations. I am a sucker for energy and I love to inspire people to push
themselves to a limit they do not think they can overcome. I promise
to bring the intensity, love and energy that will keep you coming
back for more. 110% ;)
