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 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.
 
A supported, soft, nurturing, and relaxed class with gradual transitions from one posture to the next. You'll have time to focus on your breath and find the range of motion that is best for you as you move through seated, standing and balancing poses. Blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps, and the wall are available to support you in your practice.
 
All levels welcome.
