$5 Community Flow Class


This class is taught by:

Claire McCreight

Claire grew up in Greenville and recently moved back after living in Texas. She found yoga in 2009, and has discovered greater awareness and connection through the practice ever since. She completed her 200 hour RYT through Soul Yoga Studio this February. Her passion for yoga and travel has taken her to studios in Europe and to work for Lux Yoga in France. Claire holds a BFA in Theatre from TCU and is now pursuing Film with Screen Artists Talent of Asheville.

Claire believes a yoga class is a safe and magically playful space where we can drop our labels and find freedom through movement. Claire encourages all of her students to tap into their own spark of creativity. Her classes are influenced by mindfulness, music, and breath.

When she’s not in the studio, you can find her on her bike, in the park, or always making a delicious mess in her tiny kitchen!

Allison Hall

Allison recently moved back to Greenville after being abroad for the past 15 months in Munich, Germany. Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, she received her 200 RYT from Charleston Power Yoga, a Baron Baptiste affiliate school, in 2012, she received her Yoga Sculpt certification from Core Power Yoga in Denver, CO in 2013, and is currently on the path to receiving her 500 RYT.

Allison began her yoga practice in 2005 after serious injury to her shoulders. Through yoga, she was able to find a path of healing both physically and mentally. Allison's classes are creative, fun, and accessible for all levels. She offers hands on adjustments and modifications to set each student up for success. Come to have fun and don't take yourself too seriously!

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.  

Kelly Judge

While working in big cities and wearing uncomfortable suits and shoes, I began to feel disconnected with my path. As a former athlete, sitting at a desk and riding subways did not feel fulfilling. I began taking yoga classes and felt drawn to something I couldn't quite put my finger on! Through several moves and starting a family, I frequented different styles of yoga and teachers but had not yet found my yoga "home."

I love to teach yoga because I feel empowered and inspired by others growth and transformations on and off their mat! ANYTHING is POSSIBLE! More Connection, Love, Joy and Abundance! From this practice we can LIGHT UP the world!

My first 200 hr training was with Marianne Wells in the Iyengar methodology. I was also taking classes from teachers I felt spoke right to my heart. I was drawn to see what my teachers at Yoga One, a Baron Baptiste Affiliate studio, were up to! I then took Yoga One's Teacher Assistant Training and 200 hr training which led me to Baron Baptiste Level 1, 2 & 3 and Art of Assisting as well as being a certified Baptiste Teacher.

Through my practice, I notice how my postures on the mat mirror my postures off the mat. I continue to practice, see and my curiousity keeps growing! With practice, my body, mind and spirit feel more flexible, aligned and strong. My yoga is a daily practice of finding balance in all aspects of my life.

With love and humility, I acknowledge my teachers and communities: My family, Marianne Wells, Southern Om, Yoga One, Baron Baptiste and Paige Elenson! All of whom have opened their hearts and caused POSSIBILITIES in my life for which I feel ASTONISHED!

When not at the yoga studio practicing or teaching, you will find me watching my 4 children play sports, helping with homework, doing laundry and looking for something to make for dinner!

Pace Beattie

A Greenville native, Pace learned to cultivate health in all areas of his life through his late parents, Sam and Catherine, who were dedicated to healthy living. Pace discovered a passion for hot yoga while trying to neutralize the stress of his job at the Chicago Board of Trade and increase inner strength and peace. In 2009, Pace decided to pursue his dream to open a hot yoga studio in his hometown of Greenville and Southern Om Hot Yoga opened its doors in June 2010. Pace has completed Levels 1, 2 and 3 with the Baptiste Yoga Institute. With decades of experience in meditation and alternative health, Pace inspires students with his courage and creativity. Pace is married to Sarah Beattie, a fellow yoga teacher and integrative health coach.
