Deep Southern Flow


This class is taught by:

KayAnna Charles

KayAnna recently moved here from Utah where she received her 200-hr Yoga Alliance certification with 3B Yoga. She started studying Ashtanga yoga three years ago. It quickly turned into an essential part of her daily routine as she realized yoga was not only the practice of asanas, or postures, but a mindset. The mental and emotional stability she found from her practice was invaluable. She also loved to feel as her body became stronger and her endurance grew. While KayAnna enjoys practicing and teaching multiple types of yoga, Ashtanga Yoga will always remain at the core of her yogic practice--she even met her husband while practicing at their Ashtanga studio in Utah! Her practice and teaching are summed up by these two quotes from Pattahbi Jois: "practice and all is coming" and "you are where you're supposed to be."

KayAnna will be teaching Southern Flow, as well as working the Front Desk. Welcome KayAnna!

Char Wederbrand

Char Wederbrand has been teaching yoga since 2005 and is a 200 hour ERYT certified through yoga alliance. Char has trained with many master teachers including Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman, Beryl Bender Birch, Tias and Surya Little, Sri Darma Mittra, Simon Park, Angela Farmer, Seane Corn and Rudy Peirce. Yoga is for everyone and Char easily modifies postures to make the practice available to all. Char has a deep love of yoga and loves to share this with her students as she leads practice. With Char you will never have the same practice twice!

Dolores Mendelow

My love for yoga started from two separate paths. An ankle injury kept me from long distance running indefinitely. I really missed the sweating and endorphin surge! When I found Bikram yoga 7 years ago, I found the “toxin release” I needed both physically and mentally to work off stress. From my healing background, I found that Mind-Body Medicine and Yoga as therapy provided alternative ways to promote health and treat disease. Through years of dedicated practice and training from the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, I have learned to embrace yoga as a healing art. When I am not in the studio, you can find me with my husband walking three beautiful rescue dogs, or in the kitchen trying to figure out how to cook like I have lived in the South all my life. Anything is possible through yoga!

Jo Lynn Skelton

I was born and raised in Greenville, SC and didn't start practicing yoga until I was in my early forties. I walked into a class one day at my gym and am still there. The perfect instructor came into my life and encouraged me to do more with my practice and suggested I become an instructor. 8 1/2 years later I am still instructing and love every minute. My only wish Is that I could have found yoga in my teens or twenties. I point out to my classes that you're never too young or too old to practice yoga and it's unlike anything else you will ever do. Although temporarily sidelined by eye surgery, I will continue my work this year in Asheville on my 300 hour certification. I am so excited to be a part of the Southern Om family and look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

Christen Palombo

I am a ceramic artist, art teacher, mom and wife, biker, hiker and lover of Yoga. Since stepping onto the mat in 2009, my yoga journey has been an amazing experience. A year into my practice, I met a teacher who was able to make yoga in a school gym a very spiritual, healing experience. That began my journey with yoga.

A few months later I discovered hot power flow yoga and felt the healing power of heat and yoga work magic on my body. My yoga practice was transformed from being just a physical exercise into an entire mind, body and life experience.
Knowing how greatly this practice affected my life, I decided to join the teacher training experience and share this practice with others.
I love to see the changes in students... They are sometimes like flowers, closed and tight at the beginning of class, then opening into a full, peaceful, beautiful blossom by Savasana. It is a true gift to share this practice with others.
A conscious sequence of Yoga postures held for longer periods of time, challenging students with awareness to find their “edge” in body, breath and mindfulness. Develops strength, endurance and concentration.
