This class is taught by:

Katie Tina Malinovic

"What is done in love is done well."

Katherine Tina (Katie) is a teacher that believes in teaching from the heart. (Anahata)
She believes that yoga isn't something that we just do, but that yoga is something we are.
Katherine received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) certification in 2013 shortly after beginning her own physical practice in 2011 soon after the birth of her second son.
Katherine is a mother to her two little (not-so-little anymore) blessed boys ages 9 and 7, with whom her world revolves around.
Katherine incorporates the beautiful balance between breath and body, heart and head. She tries to teach what the practice of yoga has taught her, as it connects her deeply therefore creating a stronger connection to feeling more and thinking less. She lives by the idea that we are all born from love, and love is that of our truest nature, it is who we are at our soul level. If we can all connect to that love in which we are made, share it, teach it, and live it; we can connect this world back to its root, more love and less fear. More feeling and less thinking. Katherine also incorporates the strong influence of the astrological world into her teaching; "we live by the sun and we love by the moon." She has a knowledge and a passion in connecting the yoga world to the astrological world as there is no separation. To conclude, she believes in the power of a healing hand and a transformative touch, as she combines and connects all aspects of her teaching by incorporating the power and passion of music and mantra, soul and sound.

"From My Heart To Yours."

Veda Spidle

Veda Spidle was born in Lithuania and at a young age immigrated to the
United States with her family. Since childhood, she has been surrounded by art, yoga, meditation, and spirituality. These influences led her to pursue a B.A. in Interior Design and later, to live abroad to teach English in South Korea, where she met her husband.
Her experience there gave her a foundation for connecting to students, making learning fun, and
expanding her perspective of life.

Upon leaving South Korea, she and her husband moved to Arizona where the
opportunity to blend her love of yoga with her passion for teaching presented itself. With the support of her family, friends, mentors, and students, Veda completed Yoga Teacher Training and is now an E-RYT at the 200-hour level and an RYT at the 500-hour
level with a focus on Anusara® yoga. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga by constantly attending additional training and workshop classes, most recently she is pursuing another 200-hour training certification in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.

Veda enjoys teaching people of all ages and levels of ability. She aspires
to continue sharing her love of yoga, meditation, health, and life with others, and most importantly, hopes to teach people to have self-compassion through yoga.

Grant (Gianjot Singh) LaCorte

Grant LaCorte (Gianjot Singh) embarked on his yogic journey in 2011 in a small studio in San Francisco. A fire was lit that day that led Grant to different yogic events across California. During a Kundalini class in southern California, he witnessed the healing power of the ancient tradition first hand and in a profound way. Three days later he signed up to train to teach Hatha Vinyasa yoga.

After his training, Grant taught Vinyasa yoga in San Francisco for a year and a half and helped educate other teachers-in-training. In May of 2015 he again attended the same yogic event in Southern California. Three days after he made another decision in favor of a spiritual path but this time on a larger scale.

In September 2015, Grant quit his day job in San Francisco and travelled to India on a spiritual pilgrimage. He backpacked across northern India for three months from the river Ganges to the Himalayas. While abroad he studied Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan chanting in India's yoga capital, Rishikesh. He also studied Buddhist meditation in McLeod Ganj at the Dalai Lama's temple and refuge.

Grant now returns to his roots in Arizona. He continues his yogic education with the Anahata Studio as both a Yin Yoga teacher and a Kundalini teacher-in-training. He is passionate about the alchemy of sound and plans to expand his ability heal with sound with crystal singing bowls, gongs and hang drums.

If you have never done yoga, are new to the practice, or an experienced yogi, this all level 60 minute therapeutic gentle, meditative, yoga class focuses on the basic elements of posture, alignment, verbiage, and includes breath-work, and crystal sonic sound vibrations. See you on the mat!
