Power Sculpt

This class is taught by:

Jess Norby

Jess has been practicing yoga for about eight years. She will complete her 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training through FlyDog Yoga in August 2015. Her inspirations include Eliza Whiteman, Holly Wade, and her Teacher Training peers. As a full-time certified personal trainer through ACSM, she uses her knowledge of the human body to teach and embody the importance of core strength, stability, and alignment. She believes that challenging the body is an important way to find and build strength - whether it's in her yoga classes or on the fitness floor.
During a heated vinyasa practice, students can expect to embrace working hard, getting a little (or very) sweaty, and breathing together on the mat; all for that final relaxation: Savasana!

Lindsey Tessada

Lindsey began practicing yoga over ten years ago, but it wasn’t a daily practice until after the birth of her second child in 2014. Vigorous workouts to get back into shape made her feel like she was going to snap in half, like she was on the verge of an injury. Incorporating daily yoga into her fitness routine, strengthened and healed her overworked body. Lindsey moved to Charlottesville in the summer of 2017. She quickly fell in love with the powerful, sweaty and soulful classes at FlyDog and has already built an amazing community of friends through her time in the studio. Lindsey graduated from FlyDog’s 200 hour Power Vinyasa teacher training as well as Fly Dog’s 20 hour Power Sculpt training in the spring of 2018. Lindsey began teaching group fitness classes and personal training in 2004. She is excited to combine her fitness background with her Fly Dog teacher trainings to bring her passion for group movement to your mat with athletic and fun classes.

Rachael Palm

Rachael Palm discovered the mental and physical benefits of yoga in 2002 and has been practicing ever since. After welcoming her daughter Penelope in 2016, Rachael needed a practice that would challenge her and help her reclaim her postpartum body. She attended her first PowerSculpt class at FlyDog in December 2016, and she was hooked. After 18 months of practicing at FlyDog, Rachael took the PowerSculpt Teacher Training in April 2018 and finally fulfilled her lifelong goal of adding this element of fitness and teaching to her life.

Rachael has lived in Charlottesville since 2004. Besides practicing and teaching at FlyDog, she loves spending time with her husband, daughter, and their hound-mix pup Harry. Rachael also works part-time as an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields, is the communications coordinator for Hospice of the Piedmont, and volunteers regularly for local nonprofits.

Madison Rogas

Madison’s yoga journey began her freshman year of college as she looked for something to help manage her stress and unwind at the end of a busy day. What started as simply a relaxation tool quickly evolved into a sweaty, powerful practice of self-love and empowerment. Madison was inspired by Baron Baptiste and Kathryn Budig and has studied with Eliza Whiteman and MaryAnn McIvor. She graduated from FlyDog Yoga’s 200 Hour Vinyasa Training in March 2017, and also completed her Kids Yoga Training at Big Power Yoga in Houston. In addition to being a kids yoga teacher, Madison will start the University of Virginia’s Counselor Education Program this fall in hopes to eventually combine the principles of yoga with counseling. As a teacher, Madison is committed to authenticity and will empower you to find your edge on the mat, while moving to inspirational beats. Her teaching will constantly remind you that you are awesome just the way you are.
Our power sculpt classes feature high intensity intervals of yoga, weights, and cardio. Cardio bursts will get your heart rate going, upper body strength moves and hand weights will sculpt your arms, and you'll see tremendous gains in your core strength and balance. Finish off the class with a well-deserved cool down and savasana. The room temperature will be between 80 and 83 degrees and you will need a yoga mat for this class.
