Our Yoga Teachers
Valerie Flynn-Wintz is a yoga teacher, certified for restorative yoga. She finds that gentle poses increase circulation and flexibility and renew vitality. Valerie is a cancer survivor who was teaching gentle yoga six weeks after major surgery, while still undergoing radiation therapy. Valerie has been a health practitioner for more than twenty years, and has found her life's purpose in facilitating health for others.
Tina Ufford is a multi-talented yoga teacher who has been guiding us through restorative, meditative, and strength building practice for seven years. Tina has found her niche here with a gentle
yet challenging take on basic yoga poses, called asana.
Tina says, "I like to run the class like more of a workshop, helping people with what they are troubled by that day, in the mind/body in that moment."
Tina's second career is massage therapy. She has held a Louisiana license for 10 years and is an instructor at the Moore Career College. In class you may receive a little foot massage while in Shivasana (lying down at the end of class for a 3-5 minute meditation), or be guided in some self massage, and maybe learn some new anatomy vocabulary!
