Kinsey loves the physical and mental work that yoga brings to its practitioners. She always challenges students to find their edge and have fun. Come share her love of yoga at High Point Climbing and Fitness Memphis!
Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic class that connects breath with movement, building strength and flexibility. Vinyasa classes are unique to the teacher and can incorporate backbends, inversions, and arm balances. Open to all levels and students are welcome to flow at their own pace.
Ashtanga is a traditional practice that focuses on the same set of poses. Students explore various sun salutations, standing and seated poses, and a sequence of closing postures. Each pose is held for five breaths which allows the body to open up and feel new sensations each practice.
“In the beginning I️ started yoga to strengthen my ankles, and they are a lot stronger. I️ just didn’t realize this was going to be my journey. I️ absolutely fell in love with it in every aspect. I’ve got to say one of my favorite parts is how yoga allows you to free the child that’s still inside you. It allows you to be with an open mind. To smile when you make a mistake. And gives you this curiosity that makes you want more. I’ll be teaching vinyasa (flow) but would love feedback from the community on what you need most. When showing up to your mat be prepared to smile a little and get outside of your comfort zone.” -Zoe
Lauren Witt began teaching yoga to inspire and help others find peace and joy through movement in the body. She completed her 200 hour training in 2015. She found her voice as a more laid back, and heart centered style teacher. Lauren looks forward to meeting you, and being a part of the High Point community.
Stretch + Restore for Athletes
This is a wonderful stretch class for all levels. The class will move and stretch the body, with relaxing poses on the mat using light props to ensure that each student is comfortable and supported. The class will consist of longer holding postures and gentle movement to increase range of motion and soothe muscles.
After running for 15 years, I found yoga. I started it to save my knees and stay in shape, but I stayed for the mental benefits and the yoga family I found along the way. After stumbling into a power flow yoga class, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I went on to get my 200 hour yoga certification and dove head first into teaching. I love teaching students how the body, mind, and spirit are connected. It’s more about stretching your mind than stretching your body, but the physical benefits are pretty remarkable, too! Yoga is an essential part of my daily life and I still practice 5 to 6 days a week. No matter how long you do yoga, there is still more work to be done…
Power Flow is an athletic style of yoga with a faster pace and emphasis on synchronized breathing with each movement. All levels of yogis welcome.
Gentle Flow is a slower paced yoga practice concentrating on breath and alignment, while finding meditation in the movement. All levels of yogis welcome.
Liz Kinnmark found yoga as a way to balance her body and balance her life. With a background as a competitive gymnast and an aerial dancer, she’s spent almost 20 years training for her body for peak performance. Her passion is teaching people to get up in the air, and to move in ways that they never thought possible. Once you’ve learned to bend and fly, nothing seems impossible.
