Donation Class


This class is taught by:

Mandy Learo

Mandy Learo has been sharing her practice with students since 2008, when she earned her advanced yoga teacher certification in India. By way of continuing education, she has since collected yearly credits from the Kripalu Center in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Mandy draws from years of experience teaching diverse populations in studio, gym, and university environments. She is particularly interested in how the traditional practices and philosophies of the East have transformed due to the differing perspective and unique needs of the modern Western yogi. As our understanding of human psychology and physiology grow, so too does the way we approach and practice yoga. Mandy operates from the philosophy that yoga is a living art and science. Mandy moved to Greenville in August of 2016 with her husband and infant son, and she is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the yoga community here.

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.

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.

The class is taught on the second Friday of the month at 6:45 pm and is 75 minutes. All levels of yogis are welcome, so start the weekend off right by supporting a great cause and enjoying a fun, upbeat flow class. Bring your friends - it's cheaper than Happy Hour and feels better too!
