Tammy

— Slow Flow Yoga

Tammy brings to KYBA a personality plus that creates a fun and exciting environment for anyone to practice yoga in. With 10 years of dedication, one easily feels comfortable with her precise instructional abilities given in a humorous teaching style.

Her introduction to yoga was through a Jesuit nun while residing in Cincinnati, Ohio. At that time, Tammy was intent on training to run marathons and didn’t fully appreciate the myriad of benefits yoga had to offer. However after here first child was born, she quickly realized the joys yoga brought to her life and a the passion was sparked. Since 2004, Tammy has been steadily practicing yoga and in 2006 started her teaching career.

Tammy completed her 200 hour certification in 2007 from Laura Tyre of Dragonfly Yoga in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Since that time, she has attended numerous workshops and classes and continues to further her studies whenever the opportunity arises. Tammy’s journey has lead her to combine her fabulous sense of humor and incredible humility into a gentle flowing class. This class style invites people to access their own light-heartedness, and helps participants to explore how poses feel within their bodies, not necessarily creating the picture perfect poses. Her love of therapeutics and alignment allow people to safely navigate the terrain of body, mind, and spirit.

Tammy draws inspiration from everything around her, but at the moment she particularly likes some words written by Michelle Berman Marchildon: “Growing stronger is not about lifting weights or running marathons. It is learning more about who you are, and who you were meant to be. It’s realizing you don’t have anything to prove, especially to the younger, thinner person on the mat next to you…It’s about discovering how to make a difference in the world so you leave a legacy for the ones you love. It’s about standing up for the things you believe in, and showing others by example. It’s about finding your dharma, your true calling, and living it.
