Sara Lubeck

Sara Lubeck has enjoyed a yoga practice in varying forms for the last two decades. She has been influenced by many teachers and students along the way, but cites Max Strom as being the most influential. She strives to teach students to breathe deeply, find healthy alignment, fluid movement, awareness of self, and fun in her classes and hopes students will continue their practice when they leave the studio. She believes that our yoga practice can enliven us and awaken a connection to ourselves and everything around us. Sara's class is intended to be safe and healing for the body, mind, and spirit. Her classes are taught without music, focus on breath and alignment, and incorporate long holds and vinyasa style movement.
 

Sandy Kavalier

Sandy began practicing yoga in 2001 as part of physical therapy after a bicycle accident. She has studied both Iyengar and vinyasa styles of yoga and has found a comfortable blend of the two in her teaching. Sandy has completed two 200 hour teacher trainings; her first with Hot Yoga USA in 2005 her most recent with Max Strom in 2015 and is ERYT certified. She has studied with Annie Carpenter, Erich Schiffman, Jamie Elmer, David Keil, Leslie Kaminoff, and Doug Keller. Sandy has 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren. She lives in Chevy Chase with her supportive, loving, and understanding husband of 44 years who makes her laugh at least once a day. Visit Sandy's website at www.sandykavalieryoga.com. Sandy’s level 2/3 class is designed for students who have a consistent practice. The class is a breath-initiated, alignment based, slow flow sprinkled with opportunities to learn and practice arm balances and increase core strength. Sandy offers both modifications and challenges throughout class. With a strong understanding of anatomy and kinesiology, Sandy breaks down the poses into understandable, attainable actions. Understanding the actions of the poses makes the practice interesting, fun, and safe. Sandy emphasizes a sense of adventure and encourages her students to respect their limits and be patient as they grow their practice with care, over time. Each class includes time at the wall dedicated to explore arm balances or take a rest. The class ends with floor-time to stretch it all out. Students will leave class feeling both energized and calm.
 
This class is foremost a space for breath work. It explores postures and observes the effects of breath, movement, and stillness on the body and mind. Through the use of adjustments and/or props, the student will learn to fit the postures to the body to experience their maximum benefits, and they will learn to breathe more freely so that both their mind and body find ease.
This class may incorporate either, or both, continuous movement through vinyasa and/or time spent holding individual postures to explore them more deeply. The teacher will offer modifications so that the student can either increase or decrease the level of physical intensity of the class in order to fit individual needs. The class is taught without music, as students are encouraged to move to the sound of their breath.

The class is meant for those with knowledge of basic yoga postures.

 

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.
