Overview

Greetings! My name is Sphie (Pronounced Sfee). I offer a relaxed, fun and focused approach to singing lessons, piano, yoga, meditation and fitness. It is my goal to meet the individual's personal needs. I offer training to all levels and ages and creatively empower education in music, mindfulness, health and yoga. I offer this education as a tool for overall lifestyle enhancement outside of lessons. I have spent the past ten plus years teaching all ages and accept beginner to advanced students.

I received an A.A.S. in Vocal Performance from McNally-Smith College of Music in the Twin Cities, and studied Piano, Classical Opera and Musical Theater throughout my youth. I specialize in classical and pop-based vocal training and piano instruction.

I am also a Hatha/Vinyasa, ERYT200 Yoga Instructor specializing in vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga technique for increased flexibility, stress relief and restoration. I teach all age ranges from beginner to advanced. I have trained nationwide with instructors such as Shiva Rea, Seane Corn and Hala Khouri.

Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community. Our mission is to spread the power of yoga one person at a time.

We believe that the individual experience of yoga is of paramount importance, and are committed to supporting the passage of yoga from trainer to teacher, teacher to student, and student to aspiring yogi. Our role as the national support organization for the yoga community is to ensure that the practice of yoga will keep growing, so that more people will connect with yoga and be transformed. As an organization we keep several core values at heart: service, excellence, transparency, learning and community.

· · Sphie has experience in many areas of both music and health. She has a kind voice that will help to guide you no matter what lessons you might be taking. Whether starting from scratch or getting back up on the bicycle after some time away, she is your gal!

· Piano · In studio I have been fortunate to receive lessons from Sphie for both piano and private yoga. As a beginner piano student she made instruction very comfortable, easy and fun.
Her yoga instruction is superior due to her overall knowledge of both body and mind. This helped me in achieving new positions. Her passion for music and yoga is very apparent and comes through in her teaching.

· Yoga · In studio This woman is a deep breath, a slow vinyasa, a gulp of fresh, musical air that supportively punches you square in your source of self-renewal. :D
