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.
LauraLee Madigan started her first yoga teacher training and became a “full-time yogi” in 2017 after years of practicing yoga as a complement to ballet, running, and weight lifting. In 2018, while completing a 300 hour yoga teacher training in ashtanga and vinyasa flow, LauraLee fell in love with climbing and it quickly became a regular part of her yoga and meditation practice. These days she is happy to call midtown Memphis home and loves spending every day in the yoga community and climbing with Aaron Glazer.
Climbing Flow class:
This vinyasa practice will focus on yoga postures and sequences that are complementary to climbing. The flow will combine strengthening and stretching perfect for before or after your climbing session. We will practice breath techniques, meditation, and relaxation that can be taken off of the yoga mat and onto the climbing wall, and used to benefit your every day life.
Aaron Glazer lives, works, and breathes music, yoga, and climbing. He was born and raised in Memphis, and while he loves to travel and be in nature, the Memphis vibe will always be a place to call home. When not teaching yoga and drumming, just look up, and he is probably on the wall!
Breath, Spine, and Core Foundations class:
“Breath, Spine, and Core Foundations” will put an emphasis on how to utilize different breathing techniques ranging from mental balance to energizing the entire being. We will use movement to create increased spinal flexibility while also tapping into deep core strength to learn how to move more efficiently from the center of the body. Come experience how these foundational aspects of ourselves directly translate into stronger and more focused climbing, not to mention overall quality of life!
Lauren Witt Lauren 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.

Stretch + Restore for Athletes

The class will consist of longer holding postures and gentle movement to increase range of motion and soothe muscles.
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.
