Foundational Flow


This class is taught by:

Devin Byrne

After having taught for almost five years, Devin has finally decided to share his practice with the city! Growing up as a competitive swimmer and a classical musician, he is well aware of the importance of breathing and finding harmony within one's self.
 
Primarily being trained in Ashtanga in 2012, Devin has been teaching along with Ashtanga, Yin, and Vinyasa ever since. He likes to use creative sequencing to try and encourage as many forms as growth and understanding as possible, along with integrating philosophy and mythology. Yoga, to him, is much more of an opportunity to enrich one's inner journey by deepening into asana without loosing sight of pranayama. As much as the physical practice is important, he likes to draw the focus on the more subtler realms.
 
Devin is in the process of undergoing Thai Massage certification as well. Devin has taken dozens of workshops led by international teachers and loves absorbing all the vernacular and interesting insights only to assimilate and integrate into his own unique perspective. Some of his most inspirational teachers include, but are not limited to, David Regalin, Briohny & Dice, Kia Miller, Seane Corn, Annie Carpenter, and many more.

Natalie Skubic

Natalie grew up in Louisiana and Florida and always loved being active! Her fiery extroverted nature always seemed to draw her to explore all types of physical activities. Natalie's yoga journey began in 2011 when she walked by a local yoga studio offering a 30 day yoga challenge (30 classes in 30 days). Never one to not take a challenge, she went for it! Through the newfound commitment, she found a passion and her soul felt at home. She was drawn to the flexibility and stability yoga offered along with the balance it was creating in her life. She fell in love with how the rhythm of the breath creates a magical dance between the mind and body. The changes that occurred in her life, both physical and mental left her wanting more and it gave her the desire to share yoga with others.

At the time, working in the corporate world, she found herself in a lot of demanding, time consuming roles that allowed great professional growth but left her soul unfulfilled and searching, which led Natalie to embark on a yogic journey for personal growth, through determination, vulnerability, and acceptance. After completing her RYT teacher training here at Infinity Yoga in 2016, she decided to leave the corporate world behind and teach and share yoga with others full time.

 

Natalie brings a spirited element to her classes and urges students to embody their deepest desires and to leave egos at the door. Her playful nature encourages students to face their fears and to go deep into what moves them. 

Natalie also teachers pilates yoga fusion and was certified through our very own Meredith Hesse; she is a certified doula. When she is not teaching she loves hanging out with her husband, and her four boys.

"Yoga is not about touching your toes… it’s about what you learn on the way down."

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.

Nancy Davis

After a successful career in the business world, Nancy has found her passion on her yoga mat. Nancy appreciates the physical discipline of yoga but more importantly values the inner well-being that has evolved with a consistent yoga practice.
 
Nancy holds an E-RYT 200 certification through YogaAlliance and is currently working towards a 500 hour Yoga certification under Kelli Precourt at Balance Health Studio in Seagrove, FL. Nancy began teaching Vinyasa in 2012 and firmly believes in the power of Yoga to forge the interconnection of strength between the mind, the body and the soul. Forever a student on the mat, Nancy has advanced her practice delving deeper in the yoga philosophy and exploring various disciplines beyond Vinyasa including Ashtanga and Anusara. Eager to learn more to support her students, Nancy has followed numerous leaders in the yoga industry such as Amy Ippoliti, Kino McGregor, Francesca Cervero as well as her teacher and mentor, Kelli Precourt.
 
Nancy’s soulful yoga classes will challenge your physical strength and flexibility as well as open your heart and quiet your mind. Her wish for you is to stand in your power and walk this earth with grace and strength.

Emily Palmer

As an actress, singer, and writer, Emily Palmer leads a creative life that is constantly inconstant. It was her passion for helping people connect
more deeply with each other – and with themselves – that led her to the ever-unpredictable life of an artist. This work, and the unstructured lifestyle that came with it, were constantly at war with Emily's naturally structured personality, and she frequently felt stressed, imbalanced, and worn down.
 
All of that began to change when she discovered Yoga. Her practice gave her a daily opportunity to practice stillness, compassion, courage, patience, and humility. As her mind began to quiet, she found freedom, peace and balance from within, and her life changed powerfully for the better. After experiencing the life-changing power of Yoga, Emily knew she wanted to share it with others!
 
 
She received her 200HR YTT from Jessie Fletcher's Dorje Yoga School, where she learned creative, dynamic, sequencing to both challenge, and nourish her students – physically, spiritually, and energetically. Emily feels so immensely grateful to be part of the wonderful Yoga Community in Atlanta, and to teach at Infinity!

Jesse Hughes

In her personal journey to find that place of inner stillness, Jesse returned again and again to her Yoga mat. That yearning for peace finally led her into teacher training. Now, she hopes to assist others in their journey and discovery of peace in mind, body, and spirit.

 

Jesse is passionate about making Yoga accessible to all levels, especially to athletes. She knows well the drive for performance, but has experienced the bliss of proper recovery, the nourishment provided by spending time on the mat. In a light-hearted, compassionate way, her teaching blends these energies.

 

"Undying, untouched by fire or the storms of life, there is a place inside where stillness and abiding peace reside. You can ride the breath to go there." Danna Faulds

Caitlin Hargraves

Caitlin Hargraves is an actor and yoga teacher. She initially found yoga through meditation, for which she has her parents to thank for introducing meditation techniques to her as a child. After incurring several dancer related injuries in 2006 she turned to the asanas to help the healing process and has been an avid practitioner ever since. Her classes integrate meditation, breath work, and visualization to help her students set intentions for their practice and hopefully bring a little peace of mind to this fast paced world.
 

Caitlin received her 200hr yoga certification with Blooming Lotus Yoga in Koh Phangan, Thailand studying with the sublime Lily Gonclaves and Ramananda Mayi. Her training was focused towards vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga. While in Thailand she also studied thai massage at the Loi Kroh massage school in Chiang Mai, and loves to incorporate massage techniques in her yin and restorative classes. Caitlin loves to travel and has been fortunate to attended retreats in many different parts of the world, expanding her practice while meeting other yogis from all different walks of life.

 

In addition to her yoga studies Caitlin has a BFA in drama from NYU as well as a MA in classical acting from LAMDA in London. Her graduate thesis was focused around yoga for the performing body and integrating traditional yogic techniques for classical texts. She is pursuing her acting career and you can catch her in theatre productions around town, and hopefully on TV from time to time!

Ashley Lorenzo

Ashley Lorenzo is a visual artist and a yoga teacher. Her unique self-expression and creative abilities allow her to seamlessly integrate both of these practices into one another. Her yoga classes combine both the physical and spiritual aspects of the yoga tradition. She employs the practice of meditation and breath work to bring attention to the power of visualization and intention. By teaching how to create space and awareness in the physical body, she hopes to create a movement towards self-growth, empowerment, and healing. Like her teachings, her paintings move from an imagined idea, followed next by the physical application to a complete and unified work that conveys feeling, purpose, and passion.
 

She has studied with Kathryn Budig and Gina Caputo, earning a 200 hour Integrated-Vinyasa yoga certification in 2014. Besides this training, she has also attended retreats with Seane Corn and participated in her activist work, Off the Mat Into the World. Most recently in 2015, she has furthered her education online with Christina Sell, and has attended workshops with Seane Corn, Kathryn Budig, Vinnie Marino, Maty Ezraty and Rolf Gates. She is currently pursuing her 500 HR SMARTflow yoga training with Annie Carpenter.

 

In addition to her yoga education, she attained a BFA in Painting with an Art History minor from the University of Georgia in 2013. Today, she is currently continuing her Fine Arts education with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). 

Jessica Calderon

Jessica, a native New Yorker, fell in love with yoga several years ago and has since enjoyed deepening her practice and sharing her knowledge. Aside from her love of yoga, Jessica is also a certified Health & Lifestyle Coach and Intuitive Reiki Practitioner. Her love of art, health and healing made yoga a natural fit. Jessica has practiced yoga extensively since 2005. After 5 years of a dedicated personal practice she went through a teacher training and earned her 200-hour certification in NY.
 

Jessica’s mission is to help bring flexibility and increased awareness of mind and body. Allowing students to let go and have the opportunity to connect with their own goodness as they enjoy healing through relaxation, focus through breath and movement and letting go through flexibility.
 

Jessica has a passion for teaching but is always a student at heart. She offers sequences that will challenge you, inspire you and keep your heart open. Her concentration on alignment and connection with the breath is a key element in her classes to connect with your physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies on a deeper level. She embraces healing with her warm and inviting nature as she guides her students on the pathway to health through use of asana, intention, energy work and breath. Jessica uses music to set the mood and create a warm, fun-loving class.
