Vinyasa Flow


This class is taught by:

Sara Sturges

Sara Sturges began her yoga journey after a traumatic loss of her best friend in 2013. She found herself showing up to yoga classes, where she released emotions into her mat for nearly a year. Through connecting her breath with movement, her body and heart started to feel lighter and more open. She began to heal and open in ways she had never experienced before. Inspired by the shift she felt within herself, and the powerful firsthand discovery of the way in which yoga heals, she decided to enroll in a 200-hour teacher training certification course in Scottsdale, Ariz., with the idea of giving back the gift she had been given.
Sara is RYT-200 and KRI-200 Kundalini Yoga certified as taught by Yogi Bhajan. She teaches vinyasa flow classes and kundalini yoga classes, pranayama and meditation to private clients, group classes, as well as hosts healing retreats and workshops. Her yoga classes infuse movement of the physical body with movement of the soul. She links breath with postures and adds in some special sensory treats, for an overall ethereal experience. Guiding from her own experience of transformation, she creates a safe space for healing, growth, acceptance, and love for her students.

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.

Jenna Hedstrom

Jenna Hedstrom’s spiritual journey began with a dark, shadowy gift – the gift of tragedy. However, this experience led her to yoga and cracked her open to infinite possibility and her Soul’s Purpose – living a life of Divine Service. The sacred practice of yoga provided an outlet for her grief, and connecting her breath with movement created a profound alignment of body, mind and Soul stronger than she had imagined in her wildest dreams. Yoga became her life, and her medicine – and then she discovered breathwork.
The Breath of Love has opened Jenna to a level of physical, emotional and spiritual healing like no other healing modality she has found. It has allowed her to transform her own traumas into the powerful healing presence she brings to her sessions and workshops.
Jenna is RYT-200, currently enrolled in KRI-200 Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan® (to be complete in October 2017), has completed a certification through Radiant Roots Yoga for Kids Yoga Teacher Training, a 35 hour certification for Trauma-Sensitive Yoga through Holy Yoga as well as a certification to teach 12 Step Yoga for Recovery. She has completed her year-long apprenticeship with Julia Mikk to become a Breath of Love practitioner, and being a forever student of life, has recently decided to continue on with a year-long Advanced Apprenticeship for Breath of Love practitioners. Her extensive background in studying the effect of breathwork and yoga on trauma and addiction recovery, mindfulness and meditation allows profound breakthroughs for her clients.

Ryan (Akal Mandeep) Fowler

Ryan Fowler (Akal Mandeep Singh) was born and raised in Scottsdale. After high school, he lived in San Diego, Argentina, Austin, and Colombia before moving back to Scottsdale in January 2017.

Ryan's yoga practice began in search of flexibility and injury prevention for running. He quickly experienced that the benefits of yoga are much more than just physical. His "moving meditation" practice grew, and led him to complete his 200-hour teacher training in ashtanga-based vinyasa yoga. Since then he has studied and taught vinyasa, yin, hot, chair, and kids' yoga.

Ryan discovered Anahata and kundalini yoga in 2017 and began practicing kundalini yoga and meditation almost every day. He will graduate from Anahata's 200-hour kundalini yoga teacher training this summer, and in the fall will begin studying music therapy at ASU. Ryan plans to continue teaching yoga and incorporate this knowledge and experience into his future career.

A fun and invigorating yoga class, based on linking movement with breath. An energizing flow infused with sun salutations, standing postures and some of the more basic arm balances, inversions and backbends. The teachers keep these classes lively with music and new and interesting postures; no two classes are the same! All stages of the posture are explained so that all levels feel welcome.
