Mindful Flow


This class is taught by:

Lindsay Bauer

Hi! I’m Lindsay!
 
Yoga to me is more about the way you feel during your practice than the way you look. Personally, yoga has helped and continues to help me maneuver through a very complex journey we call life. Yoga has helped me to embrace the good, understand the bad, face fears and find grace in all. During my childhood, I always found a way to voice myself. Sometimes I sang aloud, sometimes I danced and sometimes I picked fights with my older brother. As an adult, I still like to partake in the former two but I’ve learned, getting into fights and being angry wasn’t the healthiest way to express myself. And then I found yoga. I found something powerful. A source of health, clarity, and emotional expression. Yoga became an outlet and a way to feel better about who I was and the life I was living.
 
As a marriage and family therapist and yoga instructor in Philadelphia, my purpose is to help others find this same solace. I started a private practice in 2014 and for a little over two years, I have been integrating mindfulness, meditation, yoga and psychotherapy into a unique treatment modality. Through my ongoing studies and personal practice, I have landed comfortably in the Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga styles. I pay attention to the physical body and assist with alignment, injuries and adjustments that deepen the practice, but my best work arises in the energetic body. My goal is to help you release any struggles you may be having physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Hi! I'm Jenna!
 
As a child, I remember two things making me happiest – being active, and being outdoors. Whether I was at a swim meet, climbing a tree, or swinging on the hammock, I always had to be moving. Something about being outside and witnessing the interconnected-ness of nature brought me such peace. But it wasn’t until I came to my yoga mat that I truly felt a part of that connection myself.
 
Yoga was first introduced to me as a compliment to athletic training, and I resisted it. Years later, after experiencing deep emotional pain and trauma, the practice slipped ever-so quietly into my regular routine. Soon I was practicing yoga daily, just because it had become a habit, but for years I was unaware of the ways in which it was silently healing my spirit. Over time, I recognized the practice for what it was, and was ignited by a desire to share it with others. I found that yoga provided me with a sense of community, and fostered my compassion. Much like nature, I found the practice to be a powerful connective force.
 
My classes focus on self-empowerment and self-awareness through purposeful breath and mindful movement. I hope to inspire others to use their yoga practice to connect with themselves, and be conscious of the world around them. I also offer Reiki healing and Doula services. When I’m not on my mat, I can still be found enjoying time outside, probably in a hammock… some habits are just lifelong.
 

Josie Rosa-Gatlin

Hi! I'm Josie!

I am a vinyasa teacher; I studied Baptiste power Yoga and received my 200HR certification through Power Yoga Works in 2014.

My practice started in NY about 10 years before that. I was practicing yoga; asana, pranayama, mindfulness, and self study, without knowing it. Over time my physical, emotional, and spiritual journey evolved. I would say the journey of motherhood and parenthood has transformed me the most.

In my practice, I focus on alignment and pranayama, and the rest of the the physical practice will flow from there. My class will always be accessible to all fitness levels with options to power up or relax more.

I always say, if you can breath, you can do Yoga. We are all on a journey and, at one time or another, our paths cross. I look forward to sharing practice with you at Mindful Elephant.

Hi! I’m Katy Kop!
 
I teach yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices to adults and children! My foundational training is in a style of Vinyasa with strong ties to the Ashtanga tradition. I maintain a regular yoga practice encompassing a number of different styles and a regular meditation practice.
 
Upon completing my 200 hour RYT Training I immediately sought to continue my education by enrolling in additional specialized trainings to teach populations outside of yoga studios—from children and adolescents in the school system to adults in the criminal justice system. I firmly believe that yoga is for everyone. Since I believe yoga can help everyone, I aim to bring it to them anyway and anywhere I can—inside and outside the studio.
 
When I am not teaching in yoga studios you can find me teaching children in pre-schools, head-start programs, and elementary schools, or working with community-minded organizations to teach adults outside of traditional studio classes.
 
Yoga is an act of self-care that can benefit not just the individual practicing, but also the many individuals that person crosses paths outside of the four corners of their mat. Helping to foster this spread of equanimity and positivity by guiding people through their practice is my pursuit. I love the time I spend on my mat and I love to guide others through the time they spend on theirs! Let’s meditate in motion together. Let’s improve ourselves and our communities with our conscious breath and movement. Meet you on the mat!
Experience the balance, peace and self-awareness that a Mindful Flow can bring you. Emphasis is on meditation-in-motion that you create by connecting breath with movement, all while building strength, flexibility, and warmth in your body.
  
All levels welcome.
