Yoga for Busy People


This class is taught by:

Jamie Amaro

Jamie Amaro started practicing yoga after a knee injury in the 2012 Savannah Rock n' Roll half marathon. Her first class was as Dancing Dogs Yoga in South Carolina and she fell in love with the empowering style of Baptiste yoga. The community at Dancing Dogs Yoga has become a home for Jamie while inspiring her to grow. Jamie's guilty pleasure is eating ALL of Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter. Her secret superpower is being able to pick the perfect avocado and she has won first place in a corn eating contest! Jamie's teaching has allowed her to open up and be vulnerable not only on her mat but in all aspects of her life.

Kendall Beene

Kendall Beene has been teaching yoga for eleven years. Her background is in Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, and Baptiste Power Yoga. She has trained with many teachers, but counts David Swenson, Stephanie Keach, and Baron Baptiste as her most influential teachers. Kendall teaches yoga because she can’t imagine how she would navigate this crazy world without it and her life is a crusade to share yoga’s power with anyone who will listen to her! Kendall’s secret superpower is parallel parking her minivan while children either chatter or argue in the backseat. Her guilty pleasure is unquestionably good ice cream and silly comedies- together. Her favorite pose changes and morphs but she comes back to half moon again and again for its indulgent and delicious edges… and she believes that the very best thing about yoga is its ability to wake up the amazing potential in all of us!

Jessie Gulliver

Jessie started practicing yoga in 2009 after a drastic lifestyle/career change! A paddle boarder, Jessie was incorporating healthier activities into her world but had not been exposed to yoga until some friends convinced her to try it out.  Yoga became a natural expression and Jessie  became obsessed with SUPY, stand up paddle yoga. She knew that she wanted to bring sup and yoga to a new level but in order to do that she had to get certified in yoga. That's when her life changed forever!
 
"Yoga became a lifestyle for me! Since then I have gone through SUPY training, Ddy apprentice program and have been consistently teaching yoga for 2 years now! I found my way to baptiste yoga, which has been nothing short of amazing, and with the help of the savannah yoga community have been able to bring sup yoga to the studios and utilize our surroundings to deepen the practice!"
 
Jessie's secret superpower is her alter ego, Glow Gir.  Glow Girl builds a force field of glow around her tribe Her favorite pose is headstand, or any inversion -- because in this crazy world we live in, Jessie flys to keep balanced and grounded!!

Ally Wilczewski

Ally Wilczewski started yoga to lose weight.  Little did she know it would change her life.  She received her 200 Hour Certification from Dancing Dogs Yoga in 2014 in Atlanta, Ga and has been sharing her passion for yoga and life change in three states ever since.   She is currently enrolled in the DDY Master Teacher Program.  
 
A New Jersey native, Ally loves people, animals and FUN, and her classes are an eclectic mix of hard work and light-hearted laughs. Her secret super power is to bring sunshine on rainy days and her guilty pleasure...being as lazy as her 4 dogs!  Her favorite pose is tree, because she gets to forgo all the rules and be any tree she wants! You can expect a lot of Jersey sass sprinkled in with a teacher who will work your peaches off.
 
 

Cara Griffin

Growing up in Alabama, being barefoot came naturally to Cara. She teaches a yoga that practices the art of liberation. Lovingly nicknamed as "the artistic expression executive", she creatively explores Baptiste sequencing coupled with extensive trainings the movement arts.

“As the mind, so the person, feeling bound or liberated exists only in our minds… if we can learn to train our minds, then there is nothing in this world to bind us” - {adapted}- Sri. Swami Satchidananda

By focusing attention inward, Cara encourages students to discover freedom from mental and physical restrictions. This integrated approach awakens mindfulness while restoring a natural balance. A visual artist by trade, Cara's inspires students to be redesign their minds and become space architects in their bodies.
She feels incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to serve the Dancing Dogs Yoga community by guiding students of all levels through joyful sequencing.

 

Her superpower?
Pranayama or breath exercises. It's easy to forget the power that our life has inside for us, and training in breath practices, she believes, has the ability to heal most everything.
Her guilty pleasure is forgetting time exists and immersing herself in her paintings. She will swim in any body of water, and always wants to see the world from an aerial perspective and likes her food hot enough to make you cry. Cara feels extremely privileged to be in an environment that always uplifts, always inspires, and always includes. She uses yoga as her platform to change the world by teaching the art of liberation and giving all people a chance to experience that power within themselves.
