Strong Base Yoga with Shannon Tanner
This yoga class is designed to build strength, flexibility, and stamina within each pose. This is an intermediate class that offers a challenge with modifications when needed for more accessibility. Shannon came into yoga about 17 years ago, following a knee injury that she was told would require surgery before the age of 25. She was given a handful of physical therapy sessions and a prescription for opioid pain medications. When she asked for alternatives to the opioids for pain management, her physical therapist suggested yoga. For the first few years, her practice was all about managing her pain and strengthening the joints. Slowly, however, she began to develop a deep mind-body connection. It not only helped her manage the injury to the point where surgery was no longer needed, but Shannon started to understand herself better. She learned how to tune into her breath and how that affected her both on and off the mat. Yoga is about connecting breath and movement, power and stillness. She came to yoga simply to manage pain and ended up developing a deeply spiritual practice. Shannon’s goal in teaching yoga is to help guide anyone within their own journey of healing or to simply offer the joy of movement and stillness.

Vanessa Rae Gomes teaches predominantly Hatha yoga, focusing on the connection of movement to breath, alignment, and presence in the moment. In addition to completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training program, she is also certified in Yoga Nidra and Prenatal Yoga. Vanessa’s specialty is the art of integrating essential oils into her yoga classes, aligning their energetic properties for a specific outcome.
Mat Pilates with Courtney Walker
This pilates class focuses on controlled breathing and small, intentional resisted movement to build core strength. Pilates is perfect to attain fitness goals including improved flexibility, muscle tone, body balance, spinal support, low back health, sports performance, and body-mind awareness.
Yin Yoga with Courtney Walker
Targeting the deepest, connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body and its channels, Yin yoga consists of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. Beginner and continuing students welcome.
Courtney found her affinity for yoga as a young adult. She became an ardent student, reaping benefits both on and off the mat. She was particularly captivated by the mind-body connection she developed as a result. Courtney completed her training at Awakened Life School of Yoga in Amorgos, Greece in 2016. Subsequently, she has been instructing various forms of yoga, Pilates, stretch and barre classes in our community to individuals ranging in age from toddlers to the elderly. She genuinely enjoys inspiriting others to improve wellness and assisting achievement of long-term health initiatives.
“Spirit of the Trees” Qi Gong with Barbara Evans-Levine
This Qi Gong class has simple flowing movements/postures, breathing, and calming techniques, mental focus along with guided imagery that will assist you as you embrace the invisible substance called “Qi”. Beginners and continuing students are welcome. Barbara Evans-Levine is an insightful, intuitive, heart-centered Qi Gong teacher. Her background began with a BA degree in Psychology and Sociology. She worked in social services for 25 years. In 2004 a serious car accident confined her temporarily to a wheelchair. Qi Gong entered her life in a library when a Qi Gong video fell on her foot. She knew nothing about Qi Gong, however, believed this was no coincidence. She began practicing Qi Gong daily and soon began teaching. Barbara has been studying and teaching Qi Gong since 2006. She traveled to China and Tibet, deepening her understanding of Qi Gong and the many healing benefits. Barbara encourages her Qi Gong students to open to the endless possibilities of healing – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Over time she began developing her own style of Qi Gong she called “Spirit of the Trees”. In 2015, she created her first Qi Gong DVD.
Sivananda Yoga with Nancy Quinn
Sivananda is a traditional, slow-paced, meditative class that encourages proper breathing, flexibility, strength, and vitality in the body while calming the mind. Because yoga is a spiritual system with a physical component, this non-competitive approach helps the practitioner gain much more than just a healthy body. Beginner and continuing students welcome. Nancy will never forget the first time she did yoga, the release of emotions at the end was so great, that she found herself crying. She wasn’t in any pain – it was the exact opposite. At that moment, she realized the impact yoga could have on anyone. In January of 2022, her journey led her to The International Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Centre in the Bahamas, where she lived in the ashram community and graduated from the teacher training course. Nancy’s journey through life has brought her to a place where she strives for mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance using yoga along with meditation, exercise, proper diet, and the love of her four-legged Frenchie, Jax.
