Deep Southern Flow


This class is taught by:

Stephanie Benbenek

If you ask Stephanie what she loves most about the practice of yoga, she will ask you,
"How much time do you have?". A student since 2003, teaching since 2011, Stephanie's class is a mindful blend of breath and body that strengthens and lengthens the muscles with special emphasis on deeper holds, deeper breaths and thoughtful sequences that allow the body to move in a more natural way transitioning from one asana (posture) to the next. This allows each student to find the fullest expression of their pose. Grateful to see students transform from the inside out, Stephanie believes that on the mat - a sacred and deeply personal space - anything is possible.

Silica Larkin

Silica Larkin made yoga her primary physical practice three years ago, after ACL reconstruction surgery. Beginning with a mostly at-home practice of the Bikram beginning series (26). She found yoga to be such a powerful, positive tool for working on both body and mind that she decided to undertake a 200-hour teacher training to further her practice. She studied breath-centered Vinyasa Flow style yoga through North Main Yoga in Greenville, S.C. Silica's prior athletic background included training and coaching in running, triathlon, and martial arts. She believes in the power of yoga to transform us, body and soul and loves being able to introduce people to yoga and to lead them deeper into it. Ms. Larkin has done additional training in restorative/therapeutic yoga and laughter yoga and is also interested in Ayurvedic medicine.

With Char you will never have the same practice twice!

Brian Delaney

If you are walking through life with pain or limitations, Brian can totally relate. In a devastating fall off a forty-foot cliff in 1995, Brian sustained massive injuries, including crushed facial bones, a torn rotator cuff, a broken wrist, and twenty breaks in his forearm. Two years after his accident, Brian went to his first yoga class. After just a few classes, he found that yoga relieved his pain and increased the range of motion in the injured parts of his body. With a dedicated practice, yoga brought him back to life – and today he is pain free.

Knowing yoga’s transformative power firsthand, Brian encourages his students to integrate yoga into their daily lives in a balanced, sustainable way. Brian’s approachable nature allows him to share his honest take on the world, which will let you know you are not alone in your daily challenges. His words will inspire you, make you laugh, and will have you seeing the world in a whole new way.

In 1998 Brian moved to Los Angeles. There he practiced with Bryan Kest, the creator of Power Yoga. Bryan Kest’s no nonsense approach to yoga put Brian at ease and allowed him to explore yoga in a new way. Brian found a sense of peace he had never known before.

One day, he stumbled into a class with Max Strom. Max paid attention to Brian’s injuries and helped him heal further, physically and emotionally, by adding deep breathing to his yoga practice. After these classes, Brian discovered the meaning of being content for the first time. Max had such a huge impact on Brian’s life that he took his first teacher training with him and Sherry Brourman, a physical therapist, in 2000. In 2007 Brian completed Max Strom’s 200-Hour training, Yoga as a Way of Life, and in 2013 he completed Power Yoga teacher training with Bryan Kest. Brian continues to travel and learn from both of his teachers each year. He now lives yoga as a lifestyle and is committed to help others live and be the best version of themselves.

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.
