Heated Vinyasa

This class is taught by:

Maddie Lavin

Maddie is an active lifestyle enthusiast who has been hooked on fitness since doing VHS exercise tapes in the living room with her mom. In college, she took up triathlon-ing and even tackled a Half Iron Man. Looking for an outlet for her tight hamstrings (a consequence of all the running and biking) she came to yoga. She quickly learned the practice was so much more than a "stretch" or even a workout. She fell in love with her mat and all the benefits, and in 2015 decided to get her 200 hour yoga alliance certification right here in Atlanta.

With a passion for powerful vinyasa flows, creative sequencing and safe alignment, Maddie brings an exciting energy to each and every class she teaches. A proponent of finding balance on and off the mat, she looks forward to helping every student grow in their practice by using the perfect mix of sweat and savasana.

Kate Mitchell

Seeking balance, Kate discovered yoga in the spring of 2015 after leaving her corporate sales job to pursue an idea she had of launching a mobile app for adding rainbows to photos. As a struggling entrepreneur, yoga brought her balance, peace, inspiration, creativity, new friends, sanity, and community.
Uncertain of whether becoming a yoga instructor was truly in her heart, she took her yoga journey deeper and completed her RYT 200 that Summer. Kate started teaching yoga in October 2015, she’s taught over 500 classes including beginner, hot and vinyasa, and teaching is now as much a part of practice as taking yoga.

Kate likes to create classes that inspire flowing movement, inner peace, and positive energy. She feels that yoga is a space for people to delve deeper into whatever personal journey they are on, to open blockages and find new light. She aims to help foster an environment for that in her studio classes.

Off the mat, Kate enjoys working on her app, her handsome dog Rocco, visiting friends and family in Cali and Florida, Trevor Hall Pandora, and fun outings with friends.

Sharon Caplan

After a successful career as a professional dancer in both ballet and theatre, Sharon found her next path and another way to express her love and joy of movement when she stepped in to her first yoga class back in 2000.

Sharon returned to Atlanta in April 2014 after living in Colorado for almost nine years teaching yoga in both Telluride and Aspen. She was formerly co-owner of Telluride Yoga Center and studio manager for O2 Aspen. Sharon received her 200-hour certification through the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. as well as completed CorePower Level 2 Teacher Training Intensive with Brandon Cox in Boulder, CO.  Sharon holds an E-RYT 200 Certification through Yoga Alliance.

With her passion to inspire others through movement and music and from her previous training, teachers and experiences, Sharon’s “Liquid Flow” Yoga is a unique and uplifting moving meditation focusing on fluid, dynamic and intelligent sequencing designed to create heat as well as help us get out of our heads and get into our bodies. Her vinyasa classes are fun, playful and active, so get ready to sweat and move to a background of creative music mixes that will touch your senses culminating with a deep relaxing finish.
