Power Hour


This class is taught by:

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.

Wednesday Cooper

Wednesday enjoyed a long, fulfilling career as a stay at home mom but had always enjoyed fitness. When her children were grown, becoming a yoga instructor was an obvious choice for her. Yoga offers her calmness in her mind as well as strength in her body. She also enjoys running, healthy cooking and spending time with her family and friends.

Hope Brooks

Hope's love of Yoga started in 2010, specifically Hot Vinyasa Flow, what Yoga did for her mind and body made her a regular practitioner. Reducing headaches and strengthening her hyper-mobile joints are only two ways Yoga has improved her life. She seeks out Advanced Vinyasa classes and grows the diversity of her own practice with many wonderful teachers and friends.

In 2013 Hope attended Zanti Power Yoga's Teacher Training and became certified through Yoga Alliance, RYT 200.

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 and Art of Assisting.

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!

Dolores Mendelow

My love for yoga started from two separate paths. An ankle injury kept me from long distance running indefinitely. I really missed the sweating and endorphin surge! When I found Bikram yoga 7 years ago, I found the “toxin release” I needed both physically and mentally to work off stress. From my healing background, I found that Mind-Body Medicine and Yoga as therapy provided alternative ways to promote health and treat disease. Through years of dedicated practice and training from the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute, I have learned to embrace yoga as a healing art. When I am not in the studio, you can find me with my husband walking three beautiful rescue dogs, or in the kitchen trying to figure out how to cook like I have lived in the South all my life. Anything is possible through yoga!
 
Dolores is a Certified Baptiste Teacher and teaches the Southern Flow, Power Hour, Deep Southern Flow and Southern 26 series.

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.

Ginnie Suleyman

Ginnie hails originally from upstate New York. She was trained as a yoga instructor when she worked at Canyon Ranch Resort in Lenox, MA. She has worked with and been schooled by practitioners of Ashtanga, Kripalu, Iyengar, and Hathayoga.

Her full time job is as a sports performance coach at Acceleration Sports Institute, part of Greenville Health System. Her other certifications include Group Exercise Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer, Performance Enhancement Specialist and Corrective Exercise Specialist. In addition, she is a trainer-educator through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, specializing in coaching other fitness instructors on working with clients with neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and stroke.

Stephanie Terry

Stephanie found yoga in 2008 in an effort to increase flexibility and in adjunct to playing beach volleyball. What she didn't expect to find was a greater peace of mind and steadiness off the mat. The physical, mental and emotional strength gained through yoga was the encouraging factor to pursue a 200 hr teacher training at Yoga One in Charlotte in 2009. Stephanie's intention when teaching is to share the transformative and healing power of yoga. When not in the studio you can find Stephanie working as a physical therapist or outside playing with her 2 children.

Sarah Primeau

Yoga found Sarah back in 2004 when training and racing for endurance sports began to cause wear and tear injuries on a consistent basis. Once she landed on a yoga mat, she quickly learned to fully appreciate the mind, body and soul connection that only yoga seemed to be able to provide. In 2008, she received her 500 Hour Yoga Alliance certification through Sunstone Yoga in Dallas, TX and has been teaching and continually learning ever since. Encouraging and enabling others to live a healthy lifestyle, Sarah is also certified in Itsy Bitsy Yoga ©, SPINNING©, and STOTT© Pilates. Her ultimate intention for each class is to enable students to take their yoga practice with them out into the world beyond their mats.

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.
