With the 3 OMS baby boom underway, we will be welcoming 3 lovely ladies who will be taking on some of their classes while Dani, Minta, and Gentri are on leave. Just a reminder — Dani’s leave started at the end of December, Gentri is planning on teaching through the end of January, and Minta until mid-late February — but of course, this can always change! Be sure to check the online schedule for the most accurate class and teacher listings as we move through the next couple of months.
All three of these new additions have been subbing classes here at 3 OMS regularly and teach at other places around town, so you may know them and have experienced their excellent teaching and caring presence already. But if not, here’s a little bit about each and what you might expect when you attend their classes. We are so grateful for them stepping in to support our community during this exciting time!
Laura Orso began practicing yoga in early 2013 initially to help with lower back problems. After just several months her back pain was gone, but she had gotten more benefits than she had expected. Along with the strength and flexibility that comes from a regular yoga practice, she felt much more calm in her mind and aware of her body. After a few years of consistent practice she decided to follow her passion and her calling of helping people by becoming a yoga teacher. She has been teaching for almost three years now and loves every second of it. She hopes to help you achieve new heights in your yoga practice, whether it be body, mind, or in spirit.
To me, yoga is equal parts celebration and surrender. When life becomes stressful or chaotic, my mat is a place of remembering. Remembering strength. Remembering grace. Remembering the value that comes from slowing down enough to witness simple joys.
Yoga became a part of my life as a means of healing from injuries sustained from years of dancing. I am drawn to vinyasa yoga for its dance-like essence, and I am grateful to share a practice that I have found to be rehabilitative. My classes are powerful and challenging, yet playful and nurturing. I challenge my students to move with intelligence and intuition as they find balance and ease on their mats. I teach from the idea that when we show up with an open heart, we discover that the possibilities within us and surrounding us are endless.
Beth is passionate about helping others feel healthy, empowered and connected in their whole beings. Her classes ask that you flow with your breath, let yourself be present to what you feel and be authentic to what you need in each moment. In 2016 Beth received her RYT-200 teacher training in power yoga, and has since completed a mentorship with Amy Robinson. She uses her teacher training, her anatomy knowledge as a massage therapist, and her many years of varied styles of yoga experience to guide you along your own yogic path. Beth believes yoga can help each of us connect into our physical and emotional bodies, breathe fire into our hearts and help us find connection with others. She meets every student right where they are, making yoga accessable to everyone. Whether you are recovering from an injury, are an extreme athlete, or somewhere in between, you will leave her class feeling empowered and supported on your yoga journey. Beth brings an authentic light heartedness and genuine care for others into her teaching. Show up to class ready to breathe, connect, flow and discover.
