Power Vinyasa

This class is taught by:

Lydia Martin

Lydia began her yoga journey in April of 2013. Looking for a low impact form of exercise, yoga seemed to be the perfect option. As a former ballet dancer, she needed a form of movement that was gentle on the joints, but still expressive, and she fell in love with yoga right away. Her journey with yoga coincided with the opening of Synergy Yoga and Wellness and it was a perfect fit straightaway. After 2 years of almost daily yoga classes she decided to embark on yoga teacher training with Sara Cain Da Costa and Michele Tampa Hoag through the 200 Hour Samdhaana Training created by Melody White of Sacred Space in Mt. Airy, NC. Lydia graduated from teacher training in April 2016 and has been teaching ever since. Lydia's love of arm balances, deep stretch and creative flows brings a well rounded funky spark to her classes. Expect encouragement, a challenge and a fun playlist when coming to her class! Visit her on Instagram @takenoprisoners42 for yoga challenges and inspiration!

Becca Bond

Becca strives to bring the yoga magic to her classes that as many of us know is so much more than a physical practice. She believes that yoga is always happening both on and off the mat and tries to be living yoga by honoring all of the 8 branches of yoga. After discovering yoga at the age of 15 when signing up for a Hatha class, a seed was planted and the journey began. Throughout her life, she would drift back to yoga during times that she needed healing. After her daughter was born in 2007, she became dedicated and regular in her practice, taking yoga retreats to deepen her understanding of yoga, as well spending time in the studio and cultivating a home practice. It wasn't until 2015 that she answered the calling to earn her teaching certification. The stars aligned and she was able to complete the course through Asheville Yoga Center for her 200 hour certification. She considers herself a student for life and strives to always delve deeper into the tradition.
Becca infuses heart and intuition into the intentional flow classes that she leads. Expect to play, open and feel things in her classes at Synergy.

Patty P. Perez

RYT 200
Born and raised in Miami, FL, Patty first discovered yoga in college in 2005. It wasn't until after the birth of her first child that she became passionate about nutrition and overall wellness. She went back to yoga and graduated from the Skanda Yoga 200 hour teacher training in 2012. Skanda yoga is a breath-inspired, alignment-based, power vinyasa style of practice. Her classes are dynamic, with emphasis on the breath and alignment, both part of the Skanda principles. Patty loves to challenge people to grow in their practice and go places they never knew they could. She has a passion for making a difference in peoples' lives and guiding them to be the Divine Light that we all are.
Discover the "Power" and strength within you! This is a vigorous class which builds heat and stamina through sun salutations, linking stronger poses and sequences. This class is created to carry those who have a strong existing intermediate to advanced yoga practice through a series of poses and sequences that lead up to taking peak postures, if desired. Class emphasizes the principles of forward folds, core strengthening, and twists. We also include inversions, arm balances, and/or back bends. Stillness is offered through Deep Stretch floor poses and relaxation will round out the class for a balanced experience mind, body, and spirit. Best suited for those with a basic knowledge of the poses and a Vinyasa practice.  A great precursor to this is Foundations, Basic Vinyasa, or Intermediate Vinyasa.
