$5 Community Flow Class


This class is taught by:

Melissa Howard

Melissa's been practicing yoga since before she really knew she was practicing yoga. She worked on crow and handstand in her front yard as a young girl and begged her mother to put her in gymnastics. Her mother finally gave in and from 7th grade until 12th grade Melissa practiced gymnastics. After graduating high school she continued this love of gymnastics, for 2 years, by teaching tumbling classes to children. It wasn't until 2001 that Melissa stepped into her first yoga class and after several months of finding the right class, she knew she was hooked. Yoga helped her though depression and anxiety, as well as many of life's milestones. By 2010 she decided she wanted to teach yoga and share this gift that she so cherished. She completed her 200 hr RYT at Dharma Yoga Studios with the love and guidance of Chris Brown. She continued on her learning journey by completing her 300 hour RYT at Asheville Yoga Center with the help of Stephanie Keach. Also getting a certification in Prenatal Yoga and Children's Yoga. Melissa loves teaching Flow as well as Yin/Restorative and continues to grow herself as a teacher to better benefit her students. In addition to her yoga certifications she is also certified in Mat 1 and Mat 2 Pilates. When Melissa is not on her mat, she's running, cycling or hanging out with her husband and 3 kids.

Sarah Beattie

A longtime fitness enthusiast, Sarah had never tried yoga until meeting Southern Om owner Pace Beattie at a local health fair in 2011. She quickly became addicted to the physical and mental benefits of the workout, and found that the heat greatly alleviated her symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. Sarah and Pace also quickly realized they shared a love for both physical and mental health and began a strong partnership, and were married in 2013. Sarah has completed Levels One, Two and Three with the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, in addition to Art of Assisting and Advanced Art of Assisting. She is in the process of becoming a Tier One Baptiste Certified Teacher. Sarah teaches the Southern 26 and Southern Flow series at Southern Om and is also the studio manager. Sarah is a breast cancer survivor and is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
 
She sits on the board for Gateway, a Clubhouse model of psychiatric rehabilitation for adults with severe mental illness located in downtown Greenville.  She is also active with her church, Holy Cross Episcopal in Simpsonville.
 
Pace & Sarah have an affinity for moving, and share homes in Greenville and Fountain Inn with her dog Lady.  

Megan Clohessy

Megan has been practicing yoga for a little over 2 years and started strictly for the physical benefits and exercise. It wasn’t until her sister, who is also a yoga teacher, invited her to try hot yoga, that she knew she loved it and wanted more! Megan loves how hot yoga has challenged her body and ignited her mind and now wants to share that passion with others in her teaching. Megan completed her 200-hour teacher training with Ally Ford in September 2014 and teaches the Southern Flow series at Southern Om. She is also the Front Desk Coordinator.

Joanna Klee

Yoga teacher, marketing leader, and kids coach Joanna Klee focuses on teaching each class with breath, sweat, and laughter. She invests the capital needed to cultivate a family vibe in and out of the studio. Adventures in global markets, in presentations across North America, and in parenting influence her teaching and translate into a playful yet intense practice.

Joanna integrates the physicality and mental focus from her passion for sports into yoga poses and athletic sequences. Side effects from her class may include heavy breathing, excessive sweating, and an unexpected urge to take new risks.

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!
