BEFORE YOGA - Seeking my calling

Rebecca Sandlin

I have been practicing yoga for 7 years and teaching for 5. I was a professional dancer for a number of

years and because of that in my classes I love to play with the idea of fusing a more fluid movement with

the poses. I believe in a yoga practice that challenges people to grow physically, mentally, and

spiritually. I believe that our bodies were created to move and therefore we should take the time to

experiment with our limitations and exceed past the boundaries that we give ourselves.

Scott Harig

Scott Harig has been a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga teacher for 14+ years. While living in Denver, Scott taught yoga exclusively at the Denver Ashtanga Yoga Center under the direction of Michael Rawlison. His main teacher today is Manju Jois, and for the last three years he's led the Ashtanga Program at Pure Yoga West in New York City.

PHILOSOPHY
"life is a balance of holding on and letting go." Rumi.
I strive to give good yoga - a balance of strong asana, breathing and a mind that is truly present and engaged. Each sequence is unique - a juicy blend of yoga (vinyasa/ashtanga) and movement of all kinds. In class, we strive to tap in to the most Pure version of ourselves so that we can connect to one intention.
