Audrey Benton

Audrey, Teacher:
Audrey has been practicing yoga since the 1990’s, first with Erich Schiffman and Bryan Kest videos and later taking Bikram Method Hatha Yoga from local teacher Marta McDermott in a gym. Later, she walked into Belltown Bikram Yoga (now closed). It took the hot room to show her that yoga was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Audrey considers teaching yoga to be a calling. Audrey’s first yoga teacher certification was with Bikram Choudhury in 2002. She remains passionate about this style of yoga. In 2004 and 2005 she completed Power Vinyasa teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste (Level 1 & 2). From 2004-2005, she also completed 3 teacher trainings with local teacher Lisa Black (again in the style of Baptiste), including the TAP program, which is dedicated to hands on adjustments. Thinking of her beloved niece and nephews, Audrey completed the Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher training in 2009 and a Next Generation Yoga training in 2015. Though teaching in very physical styles, she is also drawn to more passive practices such as Yoga Nidra and Yin Yoga. One consistent piece of feedback Audrey has always received is about the quality of her voice. Yoga Nidra puts her voice to use in a new way. In 2009, she completed a local training with Laura DeFreitas in Richard Miller’s iRest method followed immediately by a teacher training with Richard Miller himself. Regarding Yin Yoga, Audrey is self-taught in the style of Paul Grilley having studied everything that he and his senior teachers have ever published. She's been teaching Yin since 2009. In 2011, she was asked to train her peers at Fusion Hot Yoga in the style of Yin Yoga. She strives to make all of her classes as rich as possible. She's passionate about teaching yoga in a way that is equally accessible and yet challenging to all levels from beginning through advanced simultaneously.

Lyndsie Couet

Lyndsie, Teacher,
Lyndsie is a yoga teacher, RYT 200. After first trying yoga in 2002, she practiced inconsistently and tried several types of yoga, but it was after several years in a stressful, sedentary job that she came back to her practice for physical health and fitness as well as stress relief. It became apparent that yoga would remain a necessary part in her life. Yoga has made such a difference in her health, happiness and overall satisfaction with life that she decided to share her passion for yoga with others by teaching.

Lyndsie's goals as a teacher are to impart joy and passion for yoga to others, for students to see yoga not just as a way to fitness, but as a way to relax the mind, de-stress, slow down and achieve greater focus. Her goal is to help others listen to their bodies and gain self-awareness, while encouraging a positive self-image, feelings of empowerment and self-care. To do this, she focuses the class on proper form and technique, prioritizing alignment and safety, and strings it all together with her unique delivery of enthusiasm, fun, and words of encouragement.

Lyndsie considers herself forever a student, attends training and workshops whenever able, and reads books and articles on yoga, anatomy, meditation, health and nutrition. Her goals for her students are to love practicing yoga as much as she does, get in and out of postures safely, feel awesome, become healthier and happier in their lives on and off the mat, and ultimately spread kindness to others.

This class is a fun "Bikram 26/2 meets Vinyasa" class.
You will recognize postures and try new ones. It is a challenging, yet meditative posture flow designed to work the entire body and bring the mind to a state of stillness.  
 
Classes are taught in both 1 hour and 90 min formats.
A great class for beginning and advanced yoga students alike!
