Community Class - Barre

This class is taught by:

Shannon Burns

Shannon Burns, a double WAHOO, has lived in Charlottesville for 20+ years. She has practiced yoga for over 10 years, and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training through FlyDog Yoga in March 2016.
As a Nurse Practitioner, she uses her care, knowledge and understanding of the human body to bring calmness and strength to the body through support and empowerment.
During a Power Vinyasa class, Shannon hopes to motivate students to gain confidence, knowledge, and connect to the mind & body in a kind hearted and nonjudgemental way. Shannon discovered the benefits of yoga practice during a crazy, yet exciting stage of parenting and life. After years of running half marathons and being a gym rat, she decided to see what would happen if she took 25 classes in 30 days at FlyDog, and has never looked back- HOOKED. Yoga continues to bring balance into Shannon’s life, and she hopes to help you discover all of your possibilities in one of her classes!

Lindsay Juarez

After years of different exercises—drill team, running, Pilates, yoga, the 5 machines she liked at the gym—Lindsay started taking barre classes in 2013 and fell in love. Now in her last year of a social psychology doctorate program, making time to sweat it out has been a sanity-saver. There is nothing like the sense of shared purpose and misery that comes with a really hard barre class and the strong muscles that result!
She completed a 20-hour barre training with FlyDog in 2016. In addition to barre, Lindsay committed to a steady yoga practice in 2015 and will complete her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at FlyDog Yoga in March of 2017.

Amalia Oswald

Amalia Oswald is a Virginia native with a widespread movement background including yoga, dance, and various theatre movement techniques. She is a trained children's yoga teacher from ChildLight Yoga and a trained aerial yoga teacher from AirCat Aerial. She strives to approach her mat with humility, joy, strength, and playfulness to promote being a positive individual in her community.

Amy Ackerman

To no surprise, the first class Amy took with FlyDog was a barre class back in January of 2017. From there, Amy started taking a variety of classes and soon realized that this was a community she wanted to be more a part of. She jumped at the idea of attending FlyDog Yoga’s Barre Teacher Training and teaching at FlyDog. Amy looks forward to providing fun and upbeat classes that encourage any and all people to try barre, take barre or become a barre regular!
