Donation Class


This class is taught by:

Marissa Marra

Marissa first discovered the power of yoga while living in Baltimore city in 2007, attending graduate school and searching for a healthy outlet to balance stress and establish a consistent workout routine. The physical and mental demands of hot yoga, positive environment, and desire to learn more- kept Marissa coming back to her mat. A few major life changes later- a move to Hawaii, and self discovering journey lead her to delve deeper and complete a 200RYT from Corepower Yoga Hawaii- heavily Baptiste and Iyenger inspired. Yoga became therapy, a safe place to turn inward despite the external world- which lead to a better version of self. Marissa guides with compassion, influenced by a medical career working with the Brain Injury population -creating a judgment-free space of encouragement and limitless beliefs. With mind-body-spirit connection; happiness, self-love and a balanced life are always available.

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!

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. He serves on the board of directors for the Fullerton Foundation, a family foundation dedicated to funding healthcare and education initiatives in North and South Carolina.

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.

Southern Om is committed to sharing our passion for yoga and love for our community which has embraced our studio and has helped us to become Greenville's premier hot yoga studio. Once a month, Southern Om hosts a class where all proceeds go to the designated 'Charity of the Month'. The studio will cover the costs of the instructor, so 100% of all funds collected are passed on to the charity. Please bring check (which may be written directly to charity for tax deduction) or cash for donation.
