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:
Yoga for Athletes
This class is a cross training class for athletes to help improve strength, flexibility, recovery, stability and a strong mental focus. You don't have to be an endurance athlete to get a lot out of this class! All-levels welcome! Classroom is not heated.
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!
Power to the Core
This class will focus on the core strength activating the deep core line of our body and learning to keep the outer body soft and flexible. Learn to find effort in grounding down through our foundation while drawing the core in and up. This class is WARM (between 82-87.)
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.
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.
