This class is taught by:

Eric Craver

Eric has lived in Alaska for 20 years and now lives in Anchorage with his wife and daughter. He has been practicing yoga since 2010 and teaching since 2015. He received his 200-hour teaching certificate with Karen & Bruce Greenwood, both pioneering members of the yoga community. Their training was alignment-based, giving Eric the foundation for his vinyasa flow that he enjoys teaching today. Expect a warm, challenging, high energy flow that will focus on the basics of alignment, movement and concentration. Eric wants his students to HAVE FUN while stretching their bodies, minds and hearts all the while rocking out to his fantastic playlists. 
 

Justine Weitzman

RYT-200
Justine experienced her first taste of yoga over a decade ago, and after 5 years of falling in and out of a practice, she stepped whole-heartedly onto the path of yoga when she began to shift her perspective from a purely physical practice, to something that could be woven throughout all aspects of life. Her curiosity about the inner workings and determination to dissect the practice of yoga brought her to her first 200-hr training in 2015 through School Yoga Institute. Through consistent and devoted teaching since, exploratory personal practice, various healing modalities through White Raven Center, and an insatiable hunger to discover more about the human experience, she has found a teaching style that combines building a relationship with the body, mind, and spirit, and challenging ourselves to settle into the comforts and discomforts of the constant ebb and flow of life. She continues to educate herself on the synchronicity between the present moment and the natural cycles of life. Since stepping into Deha Yoga, she has expanded her offerings through various trainings, including Yoga Nidra, Chakra training with Anodea Judith, as well as Megan Piersma’s Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training. Megan has been deeply influential to the teacher Justine is today, and the opportunities and growth the studio and community has offered to her journey is irreplaceable. Her heart is truly present in all she teaches, as her inspiration comes from a desire to deeply connect and awaken to the truth of ourselves: that we are pure LIGHT!

John Gregoire

John began his yoga journey in 1999 at UAA with Nirvair Singh Khalsa. Nirvair inspired John to explore multiple yoga disciplines and he eventually found his way to Bruce and Karen Greenwood who quickly became his guides, his friends and his teachers. John studied for his teacher certification with Align Yoga School (owned and operated by the Greenwoods). John has been teaching regularly for two years and enjoys the exploration of body, mind and perceived limitation. John celebrates embracing the unknown and exploring possibilities through fun, challenging, and purposeful practices!
A vinyasa flow practice where we explore all the usual postures (sun salutes, the warriors, backbends, hip openers) in a fluid and creative way. This is a practice where you can lose yourself in the simple rhythm of linking breath with movement. The level of the class will depend on the teacher and the needs of the students. You can always make classes easier or more challenging for yourself by following the teachers' cues for variations and modifications of the poses. 80 degrees.
