Gentle Yoga


This class is taught by:

Kathleen Smith


I came to yoga seeking better physical flexibility for dance and stayed as I discovered the endless additional things yoga offers. At Mindful Motion I found adept, generous teachers and a welcoming community to practice in. I enrolled in Mindful Motion's 2012 200hr RY Teacher Training thinking to expand my personal practice, but by graduation I found the teaching path felt right. In January 2014, I completed additional training and am now 500hr RYT.

But really my teaching is about you. It's about sharing yoga with you, feeling your energy, hearing your breath, being mindful of your needs and aware of your joy. I love that folks leave practice feeling better than when they walked in. Love the connection of energy that happens in practice, even as we are all on our own mats and in our own moment. I love to see you build strength physically and mentally and love serving as a guide for this.

Yoga helps us evolve physically, spiritually and socially to the greater good of all. I'm looking forward to evolving with you both on and off the mat.
Namaste'

Hello, my name is Anne Turner. I became part of the Mindful Motion community when I attended my first class the second day the studio was open. I enjoyed the class so much I signed up for a three month package the next day. In the following months my life started to change. My body became stronger, my sleep improved and I became less worried and more at peace with the world.

I completed the Mindful Motion 200 hour teacher training in 2011, which truly opened me to the power of yoga. Three months later I became certified, through the CPF, to teach yoga to the cancer community. In the fall of 2012, I attended a week long Yoga as Medicine seminar taught by Dr. Tim McCall at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville in Virginia. Then in 2013, I completed 100 hours of yoga therapy training in Jacksonville.

When not in the yoga studio, I can usually be found out in nature looking at birds. My birding has taken me to nine countries and almost every state in the union. Being in nature and focused on finding birds is like yoga, one must be in the present moment to be successful.

I am honored to share yoga with you in this beautiful and compassionate studio. It is my goal that my students leave class relaxed and renewed. I hope to see you soon.

Start here if seeking a gentle and therapeutic class.  Focus is on slowly building strength and flexibility as well as cultivating a sense of peace and calmness. Great for all levels. No pretzel poses :-)
