AIReal Yoga 1: All levels


This class is taught by:

Katey Inman

(E-RYT 500) Katey Inman, co-owner and director of Anchorage Yoga, has practiced and studied Yoga for over two decades. While living in Arizona, she trained with Anusara teachers Jordan and Martin Kirk completing her first 200-hour Yoga Alliance® Teacher Training at At One Yoga. Upon completing her training she traveled to Auro Valley Ashram in India to further her studies. Soon after she returned from India Katey knew that Yoga had become a path for her rather then a practice.
Over the years Katey has studied various schools of yoga and developed a love affair with the Philosophical teachings of Tantra. Most recently she has had the privilege to learn from a true Guru and credits her time with Dharma Mittra as life affirming and profoundly transformational. As a massage therapist Katey weaves her passion for anatomy into each of her classes and has developed her own methodology of teaching that encompasses her love for all things Yoga. Katey encourages her students to challenge themselves from a place of compassion, practice with purpose, and follow to the powers of divine intuition.
Pranam to those who have illuminated my path: Jordan and Martin Kirk, Lisa Goodwin, Satya and Ani Love, Dain Inman, Tias and Surya Little, Ram Das, Krishna Das, David Rominelli, Hareesh Wallis, Lynn Minton, Sri Dharma Mittra, and all the students who have come through our doors at Anchorage Yoga.

I LOVE YOGA!!! Ten years ago I moved to AK for outdoor adventures! With yoga I have found an adventure within. My practice began when doctors recommended yoga to relieve chronic neck & shoulder pain. Three years ago In 2004, I took my first yoga class at UAA with Nirvair Khalsa and I was hooked. Later that year in Los Angeles I took another yoga class, it was then and there that I had bitten me by curiosity and wanted to know more about the practice of yoga. It still took 8 years before finally deciding dive deeper and become a yoga teacher. On a Thursday afternoon after a one hour Bikram class with Melanie It occurred to me that I needed to have this feeling of calm and inner peace in my life on a constant basis. Shortly after this experience I enrolled in the 200 Teacher Training program at Anchorage Yoga and now I have the honor of sharing my practice with you! Not only do I love the challenge of a strong well and balanced yoga class, I truly believe that the mind, body, spirit connection, is incredibly powerful. When I'm not using my son as a chaturanga weight pack , I can be found either taking a yoga class, seriously practicing hard postures, (I am determined to keep having serious fun with yoga), hiking, and/or singing opera. Yoga changed my life for the better and I am grateful.

Throughout my life I have dreamt big, living in Florida and Hawaii training and caring for dolphins and sea lions. I continued to dream big in Alaska doing sea otter, beluga whale, and polar bear research. Then one day I tried yoga and my dreams grew even bigger. I was hooked on feeling completely refreshed and rejuvenated both mentally and physically. I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge in this unfamiliar world and signed up for a 200-hr yoga teacher training at Anchorage Yoga. Throughout my teaching I have explored intellegent creative sequencing making each class unique. Helping students understand their own bodies through both challenging and restorative poses. I’m still in awe when I see the constant growth of flexibility, strength, and stability I see within students and in myself. I carry my yoga practice throughout my daily life and continue to dream big in the dreams of the known and unknown.

Growing up in Alaska I have always enjoyed the outdoors and the adventure of living in this great state. Snowboarding is one of my passions. After breaking my pelvis in three places while snowboarding in 2003, I became interested in yoga as part of my rehabilitation. Immediately I was opened up to a world that forever changed my life. I began Hatha and Anusara teacher training in 2012 with Karen Greenwood at Inner Dance, and I am forever invested as a student. My goal is to share the ten years of education and knowledge that has been passed on to me in this great community. My educational back ground includes; Certified 1st degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor; 200 hr Yoga Alliance RYT. Currently I am studying at the University of Alaska Anchorage; Bachelor of Science: Major in Health and Group Fitness, Minor in Athletic Training and Nutrition.

Melissa Beneke

Melissa discovered yoga searching for ways to regain her flexibility and increase strength endurance. But after stepping into the studio for her first class, (at Anchorage Yoga) it was instant love. “Not only did I find the workouts for my body to be extremely beneficial, but surprisingly the workout for my soul became more important.” After one year of consistent practice, Melissa decided to enter Anchorage Yoga’s Teacher Training Program in 2012, and begin the the first steps towards her path as a yoga instructor. As a classically trained dancer, Melissa brings to her classes insights gained from decades of movement study intertwined with the foundations of yoga principles. Whether you are a novice just trying to to improve your overall physical wellbeing, an experienced yogi, or a trained athlete, I lead classes that offer up something for everyone. “On my path to become a better teacher, I have discovered that I am constantly learning, and I would love to invite all of my students to never stop growing, explore your inner strength, practice safely, embrace the hard work...and always leave class with a smile.” Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
