Instructor: Stacy Allen
"Stacy holds a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology, a 200-hour RYT certification, and an 85-hour RPYT certification. She first started yoga in 2013 when a friend introduced her to Bikram Yoga. She became intrigued by the benefits it offered her physically, mentally, and emotionally, and soon enough fell into a teacher training. This experience was the first of many thus far that have allowed her to grow deeper into self love, love for the practice, and love for the world. She is passionate about movement as the body's natural medicine. Stacy instructs yoga to experience the present moment with each unique human who is interested. She is a forever student, dedicated to learning from each person to cross her path. She believes that the ancient Yogic teachings are concepts that everyone can integrate into daily life with the right tools. She is here to assist people in unraveling these tools within themselves."

Instructor: Pamela Francis, RYT 200
"I have, experienced yoga many times in the past, but began to deepen my understanding of the practice when I took the faithful leap into 200RYT training with Sol Yoga (Frederick) in 2016. The experience of the 200 training was life-changing; on and off the mat. Yoga has become a regular practice for me - a practice that meets me where I am - whether its a calming practice (gentle yoga) or one that pushes me to my edge (power yoga). I appreciate the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga and enjoy sharing that practice with my students. I reside in Frederick with my husband, three daughters and our German Shepherd."
Instructor: Angela LaPadula
"My name is Angela LaPadula and I have had a lifelong passion for yoga. I received my 200 hour training at Yoga on Main in Philadelphia. I have worked with people such as Deepak Chopra and really enjoy learning about the Mind/Body/Spirit connection. Teaching Gentle Yoga, I focus on aligning the breath with movement and the benefits of each posture.
Instructor: Catherine Randazzo
"Building on the many wonderful modifications available in the Hatha yoga tradition, I create sequences that are accessible and appropriate to men and women who are mostly over 40 years old. My classes are safe, warm and friendly. One of my goals is to help everyone leave each class feeling better than when they arrived. Charm City Yoga Studio in Baltimore is where I did my yoga teacher training. I am certified (E-RYT200), insured and a member of the Yoga Alliance. I have been teaching for more than five years, with all age levels and in a variety of settings, including with goats!"
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa Flow is a practice where postures or Asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility, strength. The creative sequencing found in a Vinyasa class is often built around Surya Namaskar (sun salutations). This well-rounded, moderately paced class is great for beginners with an active lifestyle or those with some basic yoga experience.
Pilates focuses on strengthening the abdominals, lower back, and hips-collectively referred to as "the core", to maximize functional fitness and restore proper alignment. Yoga asana (pose) practice includes postures that improve balance and flexibility, facilitating a deeper body/mind connection. When the core strengthening aspect of Pilates is fused with the mindful movement of Yoga asana, Yogalates is born. This is a uniquely challenging workout that creatively leverages body weight as resistance, so no equipment is used other than a simple yoga mat. Techniques learned from this class can be practiced anywhere! Expect to break a sweat. Prior yoga or pilates experience is helpful but not required.
Instructor: Lindsay Febres
"I am a yoga instructor and personal trainer by profession; I'm a yogini and lifelong student at heart! Although my formal training is in power vinyasa, I teach all levels of yogis, including absolute beginners, the art, and science of isometric exercise. I started practicing in 2004 to combat chronic fatigue. I stayed on the mat through the years because the mind/body connection allows me to feel energized and capable in any situation.
I have a bachelor of science in psychology, and a professional history in healthcare finance. In 2016, I obtained a 200-hour power yoga teaching certification and have since been teaching in Washington and Frederick county at family-owned health clubs, corporate events, and privately.
Although my work is something very personal and dear to me, I try to also stay balanced off the mat, by drawing, reading (mostly memoirs), going on playful adventures with my beautiful 10-year-old daughter, and occasionally binge-watching Netflix programs!"

a fusion of Yin & Vinyasa flow yoga, Yin-Yasa provides the deep passive stretching of yin yoga and combines it with the dynamic breath linked movement of vinyasa flow. You will ebb and flow in this practice that is meditative, invigorating and also restorative. Suitable for all levels of yoga experience.
A slow-paced practice primarily of floor poses, Yin yoga postures are held b/w 3-5 minutes and are beneficial to our connective tissue, ligaments, bones, and joints. Yin is a calming and meditative practice focusing on sensation in the body. This practice is a great compliment to more yang styles of yoga. Suitable for all levels of yoga experience.
Instructor: Kellee Martin, RYT200
"Since 2002, yoga has been a sacred practice for me. It has helped me relieve stress and recover from injury. I graduated from Sol Yoga's 200 HR teacher training in 2010 and have since received additional training and certification in Yin Yoga and Trauma-Informed yoga.
My classes will provide you with the opportunity for stillness and reflection as well as the feeling of openness and vitality that come with movement and flow. Guiding you with my light and playful humor, I hope that you will leave feeling tension-free, grounded and connected to yourself. As a self-proclaimed, #yogasponge, I am expanding my studies into writing guided meditations and yoga for addiction recovery."
