They are focused on building strength and stability (aiming for form versus depth) but offers plenty of room for students to work on expanding their own practice. With her continued desire to share her practice, she is also certified in the healing art of Thai Yoga (assisted yoga) and Restorative Yoga (through Judith Hanson Lasater). She attributes her love for yoga, her center, and grounding from all the wonderful teachers she has and had.

Jessica Sandu

Vinyasa
Jessica Sandu

Vinyasa

Jess began practicing yoga in 2002, immediately falling in love with savasana—-finding the practice relaxing for the body and soothing for the mind.

Through the years, Jess has practiced various forms of yoga including; Ashtanga, vinyasa, hatha, Prana Flow, Jivamukti (and loving them all!) but finally finding a home with Iyengar in 2003. The Iyengar method, because of it’s alignment-based principles, allowed for more understanding of the poses benefits and created a deeper connection to her body.

Jess has dealt with lower back pain throughout the years and found yoga super beneficial in alleviating it. When more yoga was integrated into her life, things seemed less hard and life actually became more sweet! Less Dukha, More Sukha.

She has completed her 500-hour Hatha in Victoria, BC, 200-hour with Flow Yoga Center in DC, 30-hours of Kundalini training with Sky House Yoga in Silver Spring, 40-hour Elemental Vinyasa training with Shiva Rea, 40-hours Yoga Nidra through Divine Sleep and most recently became a Trauma-Informed teacher through Zabie Yamasaki.

Jess has taught in the U.S., Canada and Sweden. Her classes are fun moving and meditative - sprinkled with music to help inspire the body and relax the mind.

Jess has worked for many years within the non-profit sector, particularly within the human services and the environmental services realm. Her passion for community and her desire to lift those in need up ultimately led her to become a health coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition with extensive studies at the Raw Foods Institute. Alongside becoming a Reiki Master, she now encourages people to nourish themselves on the inside and out, and helping them find balance and peace in their lives on and off the mat.

Neva Ingalls

Vinyasa
Neva Ingalls

Vinyasa

Neva Ingalls has been on the journey of Yoga since her teenage years when she was initiated into Raj Yoga by her first and most important teacher Prem Rawat (Maharaji). Immersed in a lifelong study of classical ballet, Martha Graham technique and various forms of Jazz and international dance, Neva came to the Vinyasa practice later, in the late 1980’s, when introduced to simple breath guided sequences supported by bandhas, by a teacher who studied in India with Sri Krishnamacharya, the father of most of the asana practice lineages we know in the west.
Not realizing the power and significance of these techniques before they were generally known, Neva nonetheless practiced them diligently and experienced spontaneous flow sequences that arose from her personal practice. Neva studied daily with yogis, such as Micheline Berry, Mark Stephens, Lauren Peterson, Max Strom and later, Shiva Rae and Annie Carpenter. She also practiced Ashtanga Yoga with Lauren Peterson and Chuck Miller, and completed Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson in 2001.
Neva is E-RYT500 and certified Yoga Therapist with IYAT, and developed the Yoga Alliance registered, Inner Domain 5 Element 200/300/500 Yoga Teacher Training School in 2006. She has been leading trainings and retreats in the USA and abroad since, and many gifted graduates are now successfully teaching in the Washington DC area or wherever they have moved.
In Neva’s classes you can expect the challenge to be as much about letting go, as about applying effort and the latter will be encouraged with total balanced awareness arising from breath awareness. Neva’s sequences are spontaneous and creative and incorporate other movement healing systems such as Feldenkrais and Qi Gong. Neva’s studies continue and now include a certification in Ayurveda through Dr Frawley’s American Vedic Institute. Find out more about Neva and her offerings at www.innerdomain.org.

Rhia Morsberger

Hatha
Rhia Morsberger

Hatha

Rhiannon / Rhia is a yoga + movement educator, traditional Thai yoga practitioner, and professional dancer. Rhia’s work, in this lifetime, is to help people connect to a deeper part of themselves, to know themselves, & to move better in order to live better. Her foundational teaching point is that human bodies love variety, and we can use a movement practice to prepare our body/minds for the unknown possibilities that life will throw at us - so we can handle them with grace.
Rhia began her yoga journey in 2005 while recovering from a serious dance-related injury. Through regular practice, not only did she experience a shift in strength & body awareness, but also in her attitude, overall awareness, and relationship to life. Since her initial 200hr Hatha/Vinyasa based training, Rhia sought out additional training in prenatal yoga, Thai healing arts, functional strength, and more recently has trained in the Functional Range Systems & with the physios at Integrated Kinetic Neurology-- which has been very influential.
What initially started as a journey of physical recovery and self-exploration, turned into a lifelong exploration of how movement, in tandem with a contemplative practice, can heal, build community, unite us, & help us reach our best selves. Rhia's intention is for students to walk away not only feeling good and more "at home" in their bodies, but also more confident, resilient, and to have more tools in their toolbox to increase their quality of life.
