Hello! My name is Toni Needel, I am an e-RYT 200. An experienced registered yoga teacher, having taught over 1000 hours in the past 2 years. You will be in very good hand when you attend one of my classes. I have been trained in the Hatha style of yoga however I have studied many other types of yoga and incorporate them into my teaching. I am always on the lookout for new ways to help my students grow and learn. I love to teach beginners and those who may have special challenges in their practice. I like to spend my free time studying anatomy and how it relates to yoga.

In my past life, I was a trained chef! Nowadays I like to spend my time in the kitchen learning Ayurvedic recipes so that I can continue on my continuing journey toward good health.

I am a certified meditation instructor and you will most certainly find some element of meditation and or breathwork in my classes. Be on the lookout for Workshops!

I hope to see you in class and get to know you.

Kevin Osburn

Kevin holds a Yoga Alliance 500hr RYT certification from Peachtree Yoga along with Aerial Yoga certification in 2016. His yoga practice started while searching ways to stay healthy and fit later in life. He started teacher training to gain a deeper understanding of yoga and how to apply it to life goals. He did not intend to start teaching right away. During his 300hr training he focused on spine and lower back problems that develop as we age or from injuries. This focus led him to understand how we can use yoga to help prevent further injuries and build strength, core strength. Having some experience with Pilates also helps with understanding how to improve core muscles to help support the spine and back.

Teaching has become a way to impart knowledge by connecting movement with breath. His yoga classes will be slower paced while holding the poses a little longer than other classes.

Alison Gurevich

I am a 200 hour RYT with Yoga Alliance. I completed my YTT at Korsi Hot Yoga and I am currently pursuing the 300 hour certification through North Georgia Yoga Center. I am an active teacher and will soon add the "E" to my 200 RYT.

I have completed additional Yoga Alliance certified training in Teaching Yoga to Seniors/Chair Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Osteoporosis (the Fishman sequence).and Level 2 Aerial Yoga. I love working with people at all ages and stages of life to explore what and where yoga can bring them.

I am passionate about the balance of a power practice with a Yin practice in both my teaching and my personal practice. In addition to regularly teaching power flow, vinyasa flow, gentle flow, and yin classes I also I teach Mala making workshops that explore mantras and meditation.

I can regularly be found at yoga festivals and events as I continue to grow my own practice and seek the best in myself to share with my students.

Seth C.jpg

Seth Colburn

This is Seth Colburn, one out of Micheleʼs five children. He began his Yoga journey at thirteen, one year after being diagnosed with a G.I disorder. At the age of fourteen, Seth pressed forward in his yoga and meditation practice with the goal of being certified to teach others meditation. After achieving his goal to be certified in meditation, Seth proceeded to teach children with the same G.I disorder so they can learn what the true benefits of meditation are. When he finally made the decision that meditation was not the only way he could help people, Seth started on his path to becoming a yoga teacher. At the age of sixteen, Seth became fully certified to teach yoga publicly and teamed up with his mother Michele to be apart of what is now A Mindful Movement.
