Infinity Flow


This class is taught by:

Shelby Banister

Shelby was first attracted to yoga as a physical practice that works the body and calms the mind. Early into her practice, Shelby began to suspect that yoga was intended to do much more. This experience led Shelby to believe that yoga can open you to greater possibilities in life by allowing you to see and live from your own innate beauty.
 

Shelby believes that yoga is to be practiced in every aspect of our lives and as such, is so remarkably more profound then the asanas alone. One of Shelby's greatest joys is observing her students arrive at these realizations in their own time and see the ways yoga touches each one of them in their own lives. Shelby enjoys integrating alignment, hands on adjustments and laughter into each class.

 

"Now, just as we are, we can begin. No need to wait until we are more centered, stronger or happier. Now is the time and through our practice we can move into our center, our strength, our joy." Patanjali 1st Yoga Sutra

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.

 

Notable credits are yoga presenter for the Telluride WOW Festival (2013-2015) as well as the Telluride Yoga Festival 2015. While living in Aspen, she was honored to be a Lululemon Ambassador for two years and she still frequents as Guest Instructor in Colorado.

 

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.

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.

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). 

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.

Heather Correa

After a running injury, Heather stepped into her first Bikram yoga class where she instantly found inner peace and balance. Almost three years later, Heather discovered Ashtanga yoga! She connected with this very vigorous and disciplined lineage that fed the mind of a type A personality. She studied diligently for several years until a curiosity to know more about alignment and the minutiae of every pose led her to Stillwater Yoga. There, she dove into Iyengar yoga with a vengeance for 2 years. A longing for a more active practice found Heather back in the Ashtanga studio. Finally, in 2010, a connection with a creative vinyasa flow class fed the dancer in her soul and a practice that offered a balance of all disciplines. Vinyasa classes have been her primary practice since 2010 and the focus of her 200-hour certification with us here at Infinity Yoga. Mindful sequencing and an invigorating class with a solid focus on the breath are the root of what Heather aims to teach.
 

Heather's classes are light hearted and playful yet dynamic and challenging. Her intention is for you to feel refreshed and renewed with a smile on your face when you leave class.

Victoria Ladd

Growing up in an active home and being involved in sports and gymnastics at a young age, later in life Victoria continued her love of fitness by becoming a Zumba instructor and found joy in helping people achieve their fitness goals.

 

While continuing to push her fitness limits and leaving a full-time job to raise her 2 children she found a way to feel great physically and mentally through yoga. Victoria is registered with the Yoga Alliance and completed her 200hr training here at Infinity Yoga. She has been teaching since the moment she finished her training. Her goal as a yoga instructor is to make yoga accessible for all body types and all levels of experience.

Powerful dynamic flowing sequences with music! Many skill levels come to this class so many options are given, however knowledge of sun salutations and solid all around fitness is recommended for this class. Be prepared to sweat and have fun! Classroom temperature is WARM (between 82-87 degrees).
 
If you are looking for an extra dynamic and challenging flow, please join us for Sharon Caplan's class.  You will work HARD and the class temperature peaks around 90 degrees!
