Gentle Yoga

This class is taught by:

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 in her own home through her parents’ daily practices. 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 completing her work in 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 has completed over 800 hours of yoga teacher training and has taught over 2,000 hours. She continues as a life-long learner to expand her knowledge of yoga and related sciences by attending additional trainings, workshops, mentorships, and self-study.

Veda’s versatility enables her to teach people of all ages and ability levels, and she specializes in using yoga to help individuals find relief from physical, mental, and emotional pain. 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!

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.
