I have been taking Liam's Tai Chi/ Qi Gong class for nearly two years now. He is a dynamic teacher that is sensitive to different types of learning paces and styles (both eastern and western) and employs both in his classes. His explanations are simple and he always relates the movement back to its origin as a martial arts defense/offensive move which helps one establish the intention behind the movement. I have learned yang short form and chen style short form from him. I would highly recommend that you take his class if you are interested in beginning or continuing a tai chi practice. Through my practice I have found a healthy way to manage stress and anxiety.

I've been teaching Yoga since 2009.
I will bring you through a practice tailored to your specific needs and intentions with focus on physical alignment, while utilizing the breath, gravity and radical trust to bring you into a deepened sense of well-being, gratitude, delight and connection to your highest wisdom aspects. We begin with meditation and internally set intentions, and we end with svasana and a short closing sequence. See reviews at Thrive Arts Collective on FaceBook.

About Tamara
INTERNAL ALCHEMY meditation is an intuitive life-force-energy practice that Tamara has been utilizing and teaching since 1986. Basically, It's practiced to balance, clear, unify, strengthen & uplift mind-body-spirit. While it is TECHNICALLY Qi Gong = Life Fore Energy Practice, it is not of Chinese lineage, and is not to be confused with 5000 year old practice, Nei Gong. This Internal Alchemy is rather an intuitively granted practice that Tamara began receiving as a child outside of Detroit Mi in the 80s, a time and place where only the tangible was considered valid. Tamara utilized the work to heal of severe chronic illness and broken bones with out meds, surgery or pain killers.. Internal Alchemy is strung subtly through all of Tamara's teachings and practices. It's taught as primary focus to those who are seeking to open the p
owerful mystery school within and whom are willing to do the internal work and practice on their own. It is a way of SelfActualization and deepened conscious connection to Source.

FLEXIBILITY, YIN YOGA & VINYASA
Tamara trained in dance (ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical) from 1985 - 2003 and performed, choreographed and taught for several years. This has cultivated strong experiencial understandings in the ways of proper alignment and safe building of flexibility.
Tamara began practing yoga in 2005 and completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Asheville Yoga Center in NC - 2009.

QI GONG
Tamara began practicing Chinese QiGong in 2003 after discovering it's similarities to her intuitive practice, Internal Alchemy. She was strongly intrigued by this energy practice with over 5000 years of passed down teachings. Tamara soon trained at Kun Yu Shan Academy of Martial Arts in China in 2006. She then studied the rudiments of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Dragon Rises College, 2009-2010.

SKATING
Tamara has been ice skating since age 2, roller skating since age 3, rollerblading since 1994, and urban street skating since 1999.

I went to Tamara for Yoga to just feel more present and to become more flexible, but I got so much more. A problem with my neck and shoulder I had for so many years that I forgot it was always there , is now gone. It was locked up for years & it's now loose. It gets stiff on occasion, and when it does I now know how to release it. And it works! It took time and practice, but it got there! It's more like a therepeutic, transcendental session of magic wherein I'm learning how to do the magic on my own. So good!

In this class we’re just going to go over basic yoga poses. You will learn the correct breathing and be able to follow along with any yoga class with the understanding of what each pose entails.
So grab map, grab some water, and let’s breathe through it together!

About Sarah
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Sarah and I am honored you have chosen to look at my profile. Finding the right teacher is so important! A little about me:
I graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with a BFA in musical theater and a minor in art and design.
I was training American Sign Language at Northern Virginia Community College back in 2012. In 2015 I studied under a ASL master from Gallaudet University.
My goal is to help you learn what you are craving to know! I try to not charge too high for lessons, I know that this is something that is for fun and is not always a possibility so I try to keep it at a lowish price so that everyone has a chance to learn. I am very flexible to schedules. I am willing to have a regular time or switching it up weekly; I have students who travel for a living so they are always on a differ
ent time zone; no matter the obstacle I will make it work for you!
Something that is great to know about me is that I never stop training, pursuing growth and knowledge. I read books in these various fields to learn more and more, take master classes, and train with my own vocal coaches. I think art - on any platform, is a great way to get out of your head, free your mind, and open up yourself. So this can be for professional training, a hobby you always wanted to pursue, or a dream you wanted to chase after.

In my class with you, or you child, I will make an individualized lesson plan that focus around what skills you already have, what skills you aim to improve/gain, and how you learn. I am very familiar with the fact that we are ALL different, which means we will all learn DIFFERENTLY. I am willing to explain something in as many ways as one needs in order to understand. I like to think of my lessons as a “safe place” to explore, have fun, grow, and be okay with making mistakes. We will always start with the basics, understand the core of the craft - for example in singing that would be our vocal anatomy and how it all connects together. I use props to help make the concept more visual and graspable as well as diagrams. This is not something someone will pick up in one lesson, so don’t come in saying “I can’t”, you can, you just have to learn HOW. I will show you the how. Remember, this is a learning process, we must embrace each step of our growth.
-----
Some background of how I came to do what I do:
I have been working professionally for theatres for five years now; which has had me living in various towns in NC, OH, AR, and traveling nationwide for tours. I have a lot of experience under my belt for my years. I began taking performance classes as young as age 2 when I started ballet, then I began singing in choir in third grade. I started being in awe of sign language when I saw an interpreter working her magic around age ten and I asked my mom for a sign language book. Expanding my knowledge is what I do for fun, so when you pick me you pick someone who is constantly growing and learning more which will ultimately benefit the student.

I teach a variety of classes that, for the most part, circle around the arts! Some of my classes include but are not limited to: Acting, Child Acting, Improv Audition Prep, Various styles of “Singing” classes, Ear Training, Musical Theatre, Music Performance, Various “Art” classes, Facial Exercises (Which is great for singers, and those who speak a lot day to day to help relieve tension in the face), and more!
For an explanation on each class, I will be recording a video that describes them and posting that on here soon! There is a video trailer of me singing and dancing that is currently available. If you want to know anything more at all please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can!

I'm as basic as they come when dealing with ASL, but Sarah was very professional and very patient when it came to showing me different signs. Looking forward to my next lesson.

About Anna
I began practicing yoga for the physical benefits of yoga: muscle toning and improved flexibility. What I didn't expect was the possibility for yoga to be a journey of self discovery for me.

A private yoga session with Angelica is tailored to your particular needs. Therefore, prefect for those yogis new to yoga, recovering from injuries or reoccurring pain. Angelica will work with you to help find relief and build strength within your individual yoga practice.

Namaste & So Hum (I am)

About Angelica
I have always believed that the earth provides us with what we need at the right time. After building my own practice in Chicago I decided to complete my 200 Hour teacher training at Core Power Yoga. Yoga teaches me how to breathe through the difficult times, how to listen to my body, yoga reminds me to surrender, forgive, and encourages me to accept change. Yoga transformed my life and constantly reminds me to be kind to myself, but most importantly to be bold and brave. Yoga is the reason Curvy Chick Yoga is no longer a dream, but a reality.

She is patient and attentive to your needs. She is flexible and will modify moves if needed. I am a plus size woman and I had never done yoga before. I wanted something that could help me continue healing after a severe back injury and Angelica at CurvyChick Yoga designed a workout that was sensitive to my needs and still challenged me. I will definitely be a repeat client.

I offer modifications and challenges for the specific needs of students. I appraise what the individual body can do, rather than criticize what it cannot do.I celebrate the fact that no two bodies are the same, yet we are all made the same with the same ingredients.

By consistently incorporating the elements of play and focus, I ensure that my students have access to connect to a creative open flow of energy.
Individuality and creativity are a priority.

The movement vocabulary and style I teach uses physical aerobic and anaerobic movement: consisting technical cuing, physical demoing, and support in challenge and risk taking.

Certain asanas (yoga poses) are used in order to flush out toxins, ensure optimum blood supply to the whole body, and stimulate many systems of the body in order to give the body what it’s been desiring. What's great and beneficial to a 1 on 1 session, is that we can really dig deep into what this specific person is needing.

All there is to learn in this

About Tess

Born and raised in Chicago, she now travels the globe (Costa Rica, Nicaragua, China, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Gambia) solo, "by groove" as a performing artist, yoga instructor, and community builder. Tess creates and facilitates transformative mindful practices for others from her knowledge and background in dance, meditation, somatic experiencing, personal training, thai massage, and yoga (so much YOGA)! Tess is interested in fears and how humans find and relate to them. Tess believes every Body is a teacher. She feels insanely grateful to share this work.
