Tazz Carter

Tazz Carter  Weston

TAZZ CARTER, Los Angeles, CA – native 35yrs old. I would call myself a movement enthusiast any extreme sport, and outdoor type of activity. A chef as well as a graffiti artist and all in between, I really enjoy building, tinkering and figuring things out. I’m only limited by my own mind, and I definitely test those limits daily to better myself in all possible ways.

I’m one of “those” that don’t require much rest. Since Jr. High, my motto has been “I’d rather be awake and bored, than sleep and miss something.” Yoga came into my life through personal training, and the only thing that was intense enough for me and at the same time helped me settle and calm my mind, and my breathing. I’ve never looked back and can’t imagine myself without yoga.

Karina Friedrich

Katrina Friedrich Ft. Lauderdale

Not necessary seeking to gain a yoga practice, Katrina came to find yoga through a friend that was “hooked” on it. After leaving her first class confused and exhausted, something kept drawing her back to her mat. The journey for most of us starts this way- Something sparks within us that we don’t know or understand.

Only a couple years later, Katrina received her 200 hr YTT certification and began teaching immediately. Being grateful for what yoga has done for you is something that is best spoken when you can give it back to a community, and that’s what Katrina’s classes are really about.

Focusing on keeping her students safe, the classes she offers focus on connecting to the breath and starting to develop a relationship with your body and spirit- Essentially, the most important relationship you may have in your lifetime.

The road of teaching is just beginning for her, and she is ready for all the growth to come!

Sean

Sean Greentree Weston Ft. Lauderdale

200 hour ryt under Bea Raydo. several hundred hours of asana and meditation in Rishikesh India. Practicing Breakdance Parkour Martial Arts as well as multiple other competitive sports. I am very familiar with movement especially expressive movement. I originally began to practice yoga in 2010 to work through some sports injuries. I found that not only was I able to work through these pains, but also strengthen them find once again my alignment. More important then the healing is the expansion of presense that already was within me.

Yoga compliments all of my other “play”, but this is all a side effect from the breathe and the presence that we focus on during our asana or Mindful Moving Meditation. With a class influenced by Raja Ashtanga Hatha Yin you will open all energetic channels in the body, and working with the breathe will bring you ever more present. I am honored to guide and practice with my students.
