Alice will challenge you to bring it to the mat and give it all you've got. With compassion and firmness, she will encourage you to go deep and explore your limits. She believes that yoga is a gift, and that the more we deepen our yoga practice, the more we will open up to to meet our infinite potential to reveal our true, limitless self.
Alice began practicing yoga in 2010. She graduated from Bikram's Yoga College of India in Los Angeles in Fall 2011. Since then she has earned 500 certification hours. In 2016 she completed her Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Jared McCann in New York City, followed by an Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher apprenticeship, and Power Vinyasa teacher training with Michael Gannon in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
The students she meets on the mat inspire her every day with their dedication and potential. Her greatest goal is to simply share her love of yoga with as many people as possible, that it may bring to someone else's life the same kind of positive and transformational change that it did to hers.
Alice Istanbul instructs the following:
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!
A slow paced class, designed as a class focused on alignment and adjustments for foundational poses. Also perfectly aligned as the next step past "Beginners", to continue to introduce the foundational elements of yoga. Perfect for anyone looking to continue to hone their new practice (and perfectly suitable if you haven't been to our beginners class yet too!) and excellent for rehabilitation, recovery, or just not feeling up to a power flow on a given day! All levels welcome. Classroom is not heated.
Foundational Flow is the bridge between Basics and Infinity Flow. This class allows each student to flow thru a series of moderately challenging poses. Each series has been created to work through lines in the body building strength, flexibility, and endurance. Classroom is not heated.
