Hanna M.

Chicago, IL

About Hanna

A dancer for most of her life, Hanna found the stretching and strengthening aspect of yoga to be an excellent complement to her dance training. It wasn't until she began classes at CorePower Yoga that she was able to find a deeper connection within herself and truly fell in love with the practice. A movement enthusiast, Hanna was immediately drawn to the physical challenges presented through creative Vinyasa flow sequences. Shortly after, she felt an energetic shift begin to impact her life in the most positive of ways. Hanna received her 200-Hour Yoga Teaching Certification in 2014, and now t
eaches yoga, dance, and helps lead yoga teacher trainings. Hanna’s yoga classes incorporate a focus on breath and alignment in order to flow seamlessly through postures, hoping that her students will find the same moving meditation that brings her to her mat every day. Hanna is thrilled that she is able to make a living doing what she loves by helping her students find their bliss. 

Hanna graduated from Columbia College Chicago where she received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Dance and Arts Management. Hanna's focus has shifted to teaching yoga primarily, but she continues to train and perform throughout the Chicago dance community. Hanna loves teaching dance and fitness class to students of all ages and experience levels. Hanna believes that if you’re not moving, you’re not growing and everyone can reap the benefits of a happy and healthy body, mind, and spirit.

Hanna caters her private lessons to the individual goals and needs of her students. What are your goals? Let's work together to achieve them!

I had my second lesson with Hanna this week and she has been great so far. As someone new to yoga, I would highly recommend Hanna. She took the time before we started the lessons to answer all of my questions. She is very patient and friendly. I like the way she has explained yoga so far; the styles, poses, flows and the mental and spiritual aspects. She has a calm demeanor.

She has also been mindful of my existing shoulder injury to make sure that what we're doing isn't aggravating it. The other nice thing is she's been good about responding to my questions quickly and throughly and she's been on-time for both lessons.

Laura S.

Chicago, IL

About Laura

Hi! I am a linguist, educator, and yogi and I am passionate about sharing my skills!

Please note that I do not travel outside the city of Chicago.

ESL/Foreign Language Tutoring:
I am a currently pursuing my MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I majored in Romance Languages at New York University and have been providing private language tutoring since 2007, when I lived and studied in Brazil. I have helped ESL students prepare for job interviews and essay tests; I have helped Portuguese students prepare for vacations to Brazil and Portug
al and voting rights work in Angola. I held a career in the translation industry for seven years before beginning my current MA program.

I have an excellent command of grammar and incorporate usage and vocabulary into each custom-tailored lesson. I encourage my students to use the materials they find most beneficial to their learning process, be they news articles, poetry, songs, or novels. I am happy to work from a language book of your choice or hand-design my own exercises for you in response to your particular needs. Homework will be assigned, but it will be fun and easy!

So far, Laura has given me one private yoga lesson, and it was excellent. Before our meeting, she asked me what problem areas I wanted to work on and came prepared with a list of probably 20 poses to show me. I had never taken a yoga class before, so I was understandably awkward and inflexible, but she was very patient in showing me the correct way to accomplish each pose. She was receptive to feedback throughout the lesson about what felt good and what didn’t feel quite right, and gently corrected me as we went along.

Additionally, I’ve worked with Laura for several years in a project management capacity. She’s fluent in Portuguese and has an excellent command of French and Spanish. I’ve seen her prep work for one of her private language students and can tell that she cares deeply about teaching, and puts quite a bit of time into preparing for each lesson. I would highly recommend her for any type of lessons you’re looking to take!

When I started taking classes with Laura, I had been down-spiraling after surgery watching my physical capabilities consistently not meeting my expectations after working for months to be released for full activity. It is hard for me to remember myself then, as I have progressed so much with her guidance. She has always worked diligently to ensure I was not risking re-injury while pushing me just enough that I have seen so much progress with no setbacks.

Because I have had such a great experience, I have brought many others to her classes and they always feel she gives them individual attention, explains all the poses thoroughly, and makes them feel comfortable. This hold true for those coming from all experience levels and with a variety of medical/physical concerns. They have all wanted to go back and some say they are shocked that they like it so much because they thought yoga was something they would never be able to do. I look forward to her class every week.

I've been practicing yoga for a few years now pretty regularly. I have been to a multitude of Laura's classes. She is simply just one of the best yoga instructors I've taken classes from. She is so highly skilled at gauging her students, pushing everyone of her students just the right amount. Laura does this with the utmost patience and sweetness. She's knowledgeable in many different types of yoga and can custom build yoga classes to strengthen or sooth any group of muscles you might need. I walk away from her yoga classes feeling like a million bucks and usually raving to someone about the class.
