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.
Maddie Lavin instructs the following:
A dynamic flowing sequence of diverse poses in a room heated to 90-95 degrees. Some vinyasa experience necessary. All levels, but not recommended for brand-new beginners.
Warm Deep Stretch (Yin)
Long holds, deep stretches, find deeper layers of your being in this Warm Yin class. Expect to hold poses for 2-4 minutes to deepen flexibility in the muscles, connective tissue, and joints. Great for anyone looking to improve flexibility, both physically and mentally! Temperature is 85-90 degrees.
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!
