Teacher Spotlight: Becca Chamberlain 💛

200 Hour Teacher Training starts in just 4 weeks and as it continues to get closer we will be spotlighting different teachers who will guide the training 🧘‍♀️We asked our lead anatomy teacher, Becca, what inspired her to join the yoga community and what her favorite class style is to teacher. Her answer was this🤩: “My mom took me to my first yoga class more than 15 years ago. As I grew in my practice and developed a love for the amazing human body, I became a yoga teacher. My mom took my classes for years and then became a yoga teacher herself so I could enjoy her classes. So she inspired me to get into yoga, and continues to inspire me to stay and blossom in the industry.

I love teaching all types of classes and I love the dichotomy of teaching both strong, powerful flows as well as slow, restorative yin sequences. If I can approach any pose from a new angle of physical form and function and blend that with the subtle energetics of the pose, I am a happy yogi."

Becca is a licensed massage therapist and is currently in her PhD program at the University of Florida studying Physical Therapy. Becca is extremely passionate about anatomy and proper alignment for asanas.

Join her and several other talented teachers for this upcoming 200 Hour Teacher Training that starts February 12th!

TEACHER SPOTLIGHT: Liora ✨

Liora has been a teacher with us since day 1 and we are truly grateful for her presence around the studio! She has made such an impact on the community and we are sad to announce that her last class with us will be this Wednesday at 3pm.😢❤️🧘‍♀️

When we asked Liora about her yoga journey and how it has impacted her life so far this is what she said 😍😭😍:

When I was 12 years old, a friend’s mom introduced me to yoga and I instantly fell in love with the practice. Dedicated to deepening my knowledge, I completed my 200 hour teacher training when I was 15 and have been sharing this passion with my community ever since. Learning to connect with my mind, body and breath from such a young age has been the biggest catalyst in shaping the person I am today. On my yoga mat I’ve learned to navigate the highs and lows - I’ve laughed and cried, danced and sat in silence, fallen and gotten back up only to become stronger. The one thing that remains constant every time I step foot on my yoga mat is the overwhelming feeling of gratitude in my heart. Gratitude for this practice that has given me a home within myself and a community that feels like family. I’ve been with Yoga Pod since it’s doors opened and will miss each of you dearly. Thanks for being on this journey with me!"

We love you dearly Liora and you will be so missed! Come celebrate her this Wednesday at 3pm for her last flow with us! ✨❤️

Member Spotlight: Brooke Silva ⚡

M️eet Brooke, a high-spirited yogi who started her yoga journey with us last year. Brooke brings a beautiful and unique energy to our community and we are so grateful to know someone as magical as her.

Check out what Brooke had to say!: "I started my yoga journey at Yoga Pod since February of last year. Since then, it's completely transformed my body and the connection I have with my breath, all while providing a safe haven for me to be myself. It's as if Yoga Pod gathered the most positive group of uplifting human beings in Gainesville and put them in a room to work on their mind, body, spirit together. Knowing I have a place to deepen my yoga practice, breathe and move judgment free, and love my body unconditionally makes Yoga Pod a second home for me. ✨" We love having you at the studio, Brooke, and are honored to be a part of your journey!

Coming Soon!

Class Styles

Our schedule of classes includes a little something for everyone. From never stepping on a yoga mat to being an instructor-in-training, to loving the powerful flow and feeling the fitness burn, Yoga Pod has a class to suit your needs. Most of our classes are one hour, but we have some filtered into our schedule that give students some additional time on the mat or in an express format when demanded.

Beginners can start in podBASICS (less challenging), podFLOW 1, or podFIT and podHOT.

 

 

podFLOW 1 is ideal for all yogis who are ready to start their yoga journey. It is a great class that focuses on setting an intention and then working through postures and sequences that increase flexibility and build strength all while challenging you along the way.


 


podBASICS
focuses on four types of movements that occur regularly throughout our more advanced classes in podFLOW 1 or podFLOW 2. podBASICS builds the foundation with forward folds, back bends, hip openers, and twists. Through these movements, students explore alignment and breathing patterns at a slow pace. This is a great class if podFLOW 1 is too challenging or for advanced students looking to refine their practice.


 

 

podFLOW 2 is a more intermediate- or advanced-level yoga class that builds on the sequence initiated in podFLOW 1. We kick it up a notch by adding some heat, humidity, and challenge. The detoxification element of podFLOW 2 is unbeatable and the movement into flow provides a deep sense of presence.


 

 

 

Maybe you can’t get enough of the Florida heat and humidity, so you want to find a more direct route to sweat. We love sweat and highly encourage it during podHOT. This is another class for students of all levels and beginners. The room temperature is set to 105 degrees with 60 percent humidity! It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s yoga. It’s what we love and crave. Don’t forget your towel and water — you’ll definitely need them.


 

If you’re ready to switch up your routine and support your life with more fitness, you can kick up your practice a notch with a podFIT class. Engage your core and use all muscle groups as you move through cardio and bodyweight exercises mixed with resistance training. This class doesn’t involve yoga, but that’s why we like it! It mixes up your routine to energize your body, build strength, and increase core stability… three things that will help accelerate change in your body. podFIT is definitely a fitness-focused class. So if you’re ready for a more laid-back yogic atmosphere, check out the next class…


 

Do you have the flow, love music, and love to have fun? We love the flow, the music, and the fun in yoga, it’s what makes the movements come alive. One way we encourage students to feel the flow is through Sweat. Heat. Beatz. It’s a class that focuses more on flowing through the poses yet to decidedly “unyogic” music. Other classes help perfect alignment, but Sweat. Heat. Beatz. brings together all levels in a room where people can move to their own beat. We pump the heat and the music, take it back a notch on the cues and the verbiage, and let students zone in on their own meditative flow through the class.


 

Finally, students may be interested in a more relaxing class that helps increase joint mobility and improve flexibility. YIN classes offer just that for students of all levels. This class is relaxing, but the results are achieved through moderate intensity through long holds. Our teachers guide students to hold postures passively for 2-5 minutes in order to give the body time to ease into the new areas of flexibility and mobility; this gently stresses connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia). Your body will work hard, so we set the room at a comfortable 80 degrees, keep the music soft, and the lights down low.


If there’s anything you take away from these class descriptions, let it be that we LOVE beginners and provide a platform for all students, from first time to advanced!

We invite anyone and everyone to come by the studio to experience Yoga Pod. That’s the best way to see what we’re all about.
