Exploring more opportunities to love herself and others, Timbrel found yoga. Her certifications include a 225 hour Hatha and a 200 hour Hatha and Flow; she's also taken workshops with world-renowned yoga instructor and author Kino MacGregor. She's drawn to Ashtanga (Hatha & Ashtanga are practically married, or besties in the least), Vinyasa, Power, and enjoys the quieter elements asana yoga has to offer (Restorative and Gentle). Her classes include a balanced mixture of strength and flexibility while reaching into the more thoughtful side of yoga - breath awareness, focus, intention. Timbrel encourages students to translate yoga off the mat and into their daily lives through the other branches yoga has to offer - asana being the third branch - as asana practice equilibrated by the other limbs is transformational to every student.
Sahala began practicing yoga 14 years ago. Like many she came to yoga for the physical benefits, seeking relief from tight hamstrings and sore knees from years of long distance running, but quickly fell in love with the whole-body experience. Yoga strengthened Sahala both physically and emotionally, by helping bring awareness to how emotional stress and discomfort manifested physically in her body. After 10 years of practicing yoga, she decided to become an instructor to deepen her own practice and share the gift of yoga with others. In 2013, she completed her 200 hour Vinyasa/Hatha Flow Certification in Austin at Yoga Yoga and began teaching. Sahala believes in creating classes that are both challenging and soothing for all levels. She encourages students to find that balance between pushing new boundaries and nurturing themselves. Inversions and arm balances are her favorites so don't be surprised to find them incorporated in most of her classes. She has been fortunate to be able to teach everywhere from Belton, TX to Ibiza, Spain and London, UK.
