Balance was brought into existence in 2013 to serve compassionate, mindfulness-based yoga experiences that promote mental, physical and spiritual growth to help navigate the stressors of everyday life.
Founder and co-owner. E-RYT 500, qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher
"I've taught yoga and meditation for 15 years and I've had a distinguished career as an english teacher, instructional specialist and curriculum writer."
"My classes consist of lively and dynamic flows paired with great music, it's essentially mindfulness-meditation in motion. You'll receive tools to navigate discomfort and as a result you'll grow, change and feel balance."
Co-owner. RYT 500, Relax & Renew® Restorative Teacher, Level I
"I teach beginners, intermediate and experienced yogis with compassion and awareness. I will meet you where you are with a strong focus on alignment and breath."
"My specialty is Restorative yoga. I create a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the true healing benefits of deep rest, renewal and restoration."
My classes emphasize alignment and strength paired with introspection. We'll dive deeply into postures with a focus on body-awareness and safe muscle development.
My intention is that you take some of that newfound awareness with you off of your mat and into your every day life.
My classes are truly are everyone. I will encourage you to find 'your' practice through a variety of poses, words and music. I will help you find your edge through breath and movement.
My goal is that you learn more about yourself so that you can live your story out loud off your mat.
My classes are applicable to yogis young and old, seasoned or new. Together, we break down poses to speak to their anatomical ins-and-outs and to support proper alignment. We build organic heat through anatomically-oriented, mindful movement.
My extensive background in massage therapy allows me to speak specifically to our muscles and to educate practitioners on our body's subtle nuances, and to awaken to those nuances both on and off the mat.
I teach a vinyasa style yoga class with many opportunities for modifications, which makes my classes appropriate for all levels.
I love to mix it up by using a variety of poses that will keep you challenged in a fun, playful way.
When I teach a class, I lead you through an alignment-based yoga practice that's both playful and challenging.
It's my goal to not take myself too seriously, or this yoga practice too seriously. Life is too serious already, so let's have some fun and let it all go on the mat!
My 'Fusion' class is a balanced blend of the Yoga and Pilates practice; it combines the fluid movement of Yoga flow with the mechanical precision of Pilates. 'Fusion' will offer mindfulness, fine tuning of the muscles and the melding of two thoughts of wellness. You will stretch, strengthen and lengthen the body.
Stephanie, currently residing in Eugene, OR, is a 200 hr RYT Instructor from upstate New York. Her teaching style is a slower flow. It implements motivational messaging, breath work, stretching, core work and flow. When Stephanie is not on the mat you can find her out in the woods exploring, hiking, and taking pictures to document her journey, or sometimes at the local brewery enjoying a tasty craft beer!
"Cami joining the teaching team at Balance is like a homecoming, as she is a graduate of Balance's inaugural Teacher Training program. A former modern dancer, Cami began her yoga journey studying Anusara yoga for over ten years. She was further drawn to vinyasa yoga as the dancer in her loved the flow and the music. Having taught at Breathe Yoga for six years, Cami felt strongly that it was time to get back to her roots, thus joining Balance.
Cami's day job is serving as the College of Liberal Arts LIbrarian at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In addition, she has worked as a hospice volunteer with URMC for over two years, is a volunteer escort at Planned Parenthood, sorts clothes at the Open Door Mission and tutors immigrant college students in English. Cami has two grown children, an amazing husband, and a sassy mutt named Phoebe. Cami would describe her teaching style as all-inclusive, alignment based, inspiring, and tons of fun with plenty of jammin tunes."
