Kimberly

I am the founder of the Yoga Hive, a studio that came from a vision I had during a 10 day silent meditation retreat. I’ve had the privilege to study many hundreds of hours with a diverse array of teachers, all of whom inspire me in different ways. My Yoga as Therapy practice includes private yoga sessions, Thai Yoga Bodywork and Chi Nei Tsang. I can be reached at kimberly@yogahivepgh.com

MY TEACHING
I teach what I like to practice. And that is a well rounded flow class with lots of  breath. We prepare our bodies to move, flow; sometimes fast, sometimes slow and stretch. I give assists to help students understand the postures. Often we will have a theme from yogic philosophy or a part of the body as our focus. I believe in the power of silence and listening. My classes typically are without music.

Dezza

Yoga pushes me and lets me explore being close to my edge (whatever it may be at that moment). It embraces me as I am, my strengths, as well as my imperfections. My practice gives me the space accept myself as a work in progress; and in turn, to take others in as they are. As a teacher, it’s very humbling to offer yoga to each person who walks into class. It’s an honor to be of service to our community as they move and delve deeper into their own journey into yoga.

MY TEACHING
Expect to build up heat in my class with its eclectic approach to vinyasa. It’s often infused with a sense of lightheartedness. (Rumor has it that a little bit of core engagement is also peppered into the practice!) Breath and movement. Breath and stillness.

Michael

I AM a being of Love. If you want to advance with your practice of Yoga, come find me. What is Yoga? Come find out, experience, remember. I focus on what has changed my life. Using breath awareness and mindfulness within the physical practice I’ve learned how to alleviate mental / emotional suffering and have let go of judgements and fear. What remains is unconditional love for all.

MY TEACHING
I Am inspired by ACIM, Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle, my teachers Philip Urso, Jared McCann, and Mary Jarvis, laughter, nature, beauty and the sound of Ujjayi breath.

Allison
Yoga for me is a way to keep learning, growing, and staying open as I navigate and figure out life with as much grace and joy as possible. I started practicing yoga as a way to keep my body strong for my massage therapy business and have found so much more. Yoga keeps me grounded, spacious, and connected to my authentic self.
MY TEACHING
I completed The Yoga Hive’s 2017 teacher training. I’m an anatomy nerd and love to help people work towards finding those beautiful “aha” moments within their bodies.
Patrick
My profound experiences with a daily meditation and pranayama (breathing practices) over the past 10 years have led me numerous retreats and workshops. I weave this wisdom into all my teachings. I am a Certified Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher and have completed additional 300 hour trainings in transformational wellness at Create Karma and Ayruvedic Yoga at Kripalu.

MY TEACHING
You can expect to find your center, move with breath and have some fun.

Monica

I found yoga as a graduate student in 2000. Yoga not only healed me from my running injuries, but brought peace and tranquility to my life. I  completed my 200hr teacher training under Tiffany Cruikshank.

MY TEACHING

My classes are  a combination of energizing vinyasa sequencing combined with restorative moments that make my students notice the transformation in their minds and bodies. Expect lots of movement, breath, flow and carefully planned playlists.

Josh
I completed the Yoga Hive Teacher Training program. Yoga helps me not only deal with the shit that the world throws at us, but also provides the strength to help myself and my community.
MY TEACHING
 I endeavor to provide classes that give people the resilience to tackle the challenges in their lives and make the world a better place.
Dominique
When I first practiced yoga, I didn’t realize how much it would change my life. What began as an exercise eventually turned into a way to ease my mind from anxiety, and now I respect the practice much more as an essential part of a healthy routine. Yoga has been one of the best things to happen to me, and I hope to inspire that same feeling in others.
MY TEACHING
I love leaving a class feeling strong and energized, mentally and physically. My classes will imbue strength, confidence, and mental clarity by focusing on the breath, building heat, holding poses, and winding down with deep stretching.”
Jordan
I am the Yoga Hive’s afternoon / evening studio manager. I love being part of the community and meeting new people. Teaching is an art and holding space for breath and possibility is my mission. Yoga helps me to feel alive and connected.

MY TEACHING
You can expect to find a strong, steady practice that will allow you to move and breathe with ease. I’m a minimalist with cues, so get ready to listen to your breath and take time to get organized in your body.

Ayça
Pronounced Ay-cha. It’s Turkish! I stumbled upon yoga as a teenager, and it has been a life force ever since. My yoga studies brought me to many wonderful teachers in Ann Arbor, Santa Fe, Pittsburgh, and New York City. Over the years, yoga has been foundational in my life as a designer and mother of two.
MY TEACHING
I draw from my background in Iyengar-style yoga, emphasizing alignment in her vinyasa classes.
Diane
By uniting the mind, body, and breath you begin to change your life! Yoga is a community and I encourage everyone to share their energy on and off the mat. When I’m not teaching or practicing, I’m in the kitchen baking a new recipe, spending time in nature, or planning her next travel adventure.
MY TEACHING
I help others experience increased strength, flexibility, stability, and mobility, as well as self confidence and the inner stillness required to truly focus.
Emily

I went to yoga for the exercise and found something truly powerful.  Yoga not only improves fitness and flexibility, it also provides us with the tools to connect and transform.  My practice helps me to make space physically, emotionally and mentally.  The power that I found in that connection is truly magical.  I believe yoga is for everybody and love sharing this practice.

MY TEACHING
My classes are a blend of vinyasa yoga and Strala Yoga drawing from my personal practice and training.  We move with breath, take intentional pauses, and play, allowing you to build strength and openness.  My classes are infused with a sense of ease and kindness, because we can all use a little extra of both in our lives.

Lisa

I stepped on her mat over a decade ago and found solace in the dynamic flow of vinyasa yoga that artfully linked her breath, movement, and soul. I quickly realized there is no place like OM. Since that 1st class, she lost her 1st born daughter, and her infant son was diagnosed with a life-threatening genetic disorder. Yoga brought healing when nothing else could.

MY TEACHING
Inspired by the wisdom that we can survive a life-shattering crisis by not clinging to what is not in the present. I completed the Yoga Hive’s 200-hour Teacher training in 2014. Lisa, who is also an attorney, can be found cultivating her ever-blissful light with her son, Silas, daughter, Amalita, and husband John.

Rose

I discovered Pilates in 2005 after looking for an exercise program that wouldn’t aggravate my pre-existing knee and shoulder injuries. I became so enthralled with the method and its wide range of challenging exercises that I enrolled in the Balanced Body Teacher Training Program in 2011. It’s my mission to create sessions that are imaginative, accessible and challenging for clients of all ages and fitness levels.

My Teaching

I teach Tone on Wednesday’s at 11 am. It’s a fusion of Barre (without the bar to improve balance), pilates and balanced body. We target the spots that get weak from sitting and aging: Core – Butt – Arms. Small movements make a big impact. Get ready to TONE.
