Basic Yoga

New to yoga? This is the class for you! This is the starting point towards the Power Flow classes.  We move slowly and break down each pose, including breathing techniques and adjustments to make each pose comfortable, yet challenging. Be ready to sweat, because we practice for sixty minutes in a heated room! The heat simply allows for greater flexibility and detoxification benefits.

Claire from Yoga Innovations, Bethel Park | Pittsburgh Yoga | Mommy & Me Yoga

I am the meat and potatoes, caffeine and chocolate kind of yogi. I like a good glass of wine as much as a good Om. Yoga has always played a significant role in supporting my athletic lifestyle. In college, I majored in business management with a focus on advertising and marketing. While working at an advertising agency in Boulder Colorado I learned a valuable lesson: “you must sell the truth of the product.” The truth of the matter was, there wasn’t anything I believed in enough to commit to selling. The only response that seemed simple, so obvious was yoga. Finally, I had found a way to combine my two passions: business and yoga. The next natural step was to formally go through yoga teacher training. At Core Power Yoga in Denver Colorado I received my 200 hour certification in Power Flow and Bikram styles; in addition, to children's yoga and prenatal. Then, after teaching and living in PA, Dana Barone offered me the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the new owner of Yoga Innovations. With two daughters of my own, and the addition of all of the other yoga babies in our staff-- YI's family oriented vibe naturally grew with the addition of several of mommy and me, kids and family yoga classes.

After a lengthy battle with chronic headaches, I was quickly hooked on yoga when I realized a handful of classes facilitated the relief no medical treatment had been able to. Continuing my practice, it wasn't until I was faced with the demands of owning a business that yoga truly became a lifestyle and coping mechanism. This sparked my desire to become a yoga teacher and soon after I completed the 200-hour certified teacher training program at Yoga Innovations in 2015. I have a huge passion for helping others manage stress and encouraging the importance of self-care, even when life gets tough, which I truly feel I am able to accomplish by sharing this practice. When I'm not teaching, I run my own business focused on bringing creative strategies and inspiring content to entrepreneurs. I also enjoy catching up on the latest episode of Scandal and I'm an ice cream enthusiast =).
