$5 Community Flow Class


This class is taught by:

Athena Seay

A native of South Carolina, Athena brings to her practice an opening to grace and strength. She is grateful for the gifts that yoga has brought to her. These include overcoming a back injury and helping to raise her three children. Athena is certified through Yoga Alliance (230 RYT) through the Asheville Yoga Center, she also holds certificates in Pre/post natal Yoga and Pilates. Athena has been fortunate enough to take classes from many world masters including Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea and John Friend. The greatest pleasure in her learning though comes from seeing the transformation that yoga has on her students.

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 (& each other!) 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 a Tier One Baptiste Certified Teacher. Sarah teaches the Southern 26 and Southern Flow series at Southern Om and is also the studio operations manager. Sarah is a breast cancer survivor and is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
 
She is active with her church, Holy Cross Episcopal in Simpsonville, and volunteers for Gateway, a Clubhouse model of psychiatric rehabilitation for adults with severe mental illness located in downtown Greenville. 
 
Pace & Sarah share a home in downtown Greenville with her true love - Lady.  

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.

Caroline Byrd

Caroline began practicing yoga in 2011 as part of physical therapy for a disk injury in her lower back, and through high school and college, yoga continued to be a constant in her life. She completed a 200 hour training through the Baptiste Institute in May 2017, the day after her graduation from Furman University. In June 2017 she received an additional certification with the Baptiste Institute in Kids Yoga and taught with the Kentucky Yoga Initiative that same summer teaching yoga to kids living in transitional housing units. Yoga has been an integral part of Caroline's physical and mental health and she believes that a regular practice in hot yoga can change a person's life, just as it changed hers.

When Caroline isn't teaching or taking hot yoga classes at Southern Om, she loves traveling the globe and spending time with her live-in lion/ tabby cat, Egg Nog.
