Intentional Communications for the Holidays with Cynthia Kane - Sunday, December 16 12:00 - 1:30 PM


Vinyasa II

This class is taught by:

Ronnie Jersky

Ronnie has enjoyed a 30 year career as a traditional teacher, teacher mentor, and curriculum specialist. Concurrently, she was and remains a personal fitness trainer and group exercise teacher. In 2002, while visiting family in Philadelphia, Ronnie attended a yoga class led by internationally acclaimed yoga master Baron Baptiste and her whole perspective of mental and physical body transformation immediately changed. Having pursued myriad teacher trainings with the yoga world community’s highly reputed yoga teachers over the years, Baron remains her most inspiring influence. Ronnie incorporates her dedication to breath work, alignment precision, playfulness, and creativity in her challenging and accessible vinyasa flow sequences. She encourages hard work and lightheartedness throughout one’s yoga practice, the “sthira and sukha” of all poses and one’s life. Ronnie’s forte is her attention to every client’s amplification and modification needs within an all level’s class. She creates classes from an intuitive and organic perspective. Spiritual connectivity and laughter can be found in every practice. Yoga practice is a true celebration of who we are and the more we practice, the more we learn to live abundantly and courageously. Ronnie believes that there is a trustworthy road through whatever life brings. Loving yourself will help you find it. Yoga will help you find the love.

Alice Wylie

Alice has been teaching yoga in the DC area since 2004 and is an E-RYT500 through Yoga Alliance. She received her training through Tranquil Space and Hot Yoga. Alice received her B.S. in Ballet and French from Indiana University and continued to dance professionally in ballet, modern, and contemporary companies for over 12 years, touring, performing, and teaching internationally. Her varied experiences with dance, for which she is deeply grateful, have helped inform and influence all of her teaching.

Catherine Marquette

Catherine Marquette (RYT500) has been a yoga student for over 15 years, having arrived to her first Iyengar yoga class after injuries halted her competitive running career. She completed her 200hr teacher training with Kim Weeks at Boundless Yoga (DC) and later completed her 300hr teacher training under Chrissy Carter at YogaWorks (NYC). An Iyengar student and certified Level 1 YogaWorks teacher, Catherine has been teaching for almost a decade and brings a sense of humor to her obsession with alignment.
The class always includes a proper full body warm-up, mindful movement and sequencing, attention to safe alignment, and clear guidance of breath-initiated flow. While the class is geared toward the intermediate practitioner, modifications are made to suit newer students and variations for the more experienced student.
This is not a hot yoga class. The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice. Usually, the temperature will range between 76 degrees and 80 degrees, with the maximum being the exception rather than the rule.
