Graduating from one of the leading teacher training programs in the South Florida area was a life changing experience for Thomas. As a certified Vinyasa teacher (E-RYT 200), Thomas has found a home on the yoga mat! Under the tutelage of Ian Darrah , Thomas gained tremendous skills from Ian’s years of experience and knowledge. Thomas often jokes about being an anatomy nerd but his knowledge of the relationship between an asana (pose) and the human body offers students a great deal of insight into their practice. Thomas’ teaching style offers very detailed alignment cues which builds stability and mobility for the body safety and as a former athlete
( distant runner ), he understands the importance of stretching in the correct way. He encourages everyone in his classes to honor their bodies, themselves, others, and to always have fun! Classes absolutely for all levels.

Cooper is a certified yoga therapist with the International Yoga Association of Yoga Therapists and a registered 500 hour yoga instructor and continuing education provider with the Yoga Alliance. Cooper is the lead teacher for teacher training in her school, Antahsara Yoga. She has studied with great teachers such as Mukunda Stiles, Darren Rhodes, Donna Farhi, Ana Forrest, Amy Ippolitti, Christina Sell, Doug Swenson, Ed Marks, Mary Obendorfer, George Purvis, Bikram Chodury, Kofi Busia, and Amy DeFilippi. Cooper began practicing yoga in 1997, blessed by two Integral yoga teachers who were both doctors of chiropractic; her first instruction was both spiritual and profoundly informed by the instructors’ knowledge of the body. A lifelong athlete, Cooper became diverted by more physically challenging forms of hatha, going on to become a Bikram instructor. After four years of teaching an average of fourteen classes a week, running studios and eventually opening her own studio in the west, she traveled to kerala India in 2000 to obtain her Sivananda teaching certificate. It was in the ashram that she found the hidden essence she had been seeking in the West. India and the ashram provided context for the postures with in the greater whole of the art and science of Yoga.
After returning to the United States Cooper continued to run studios and teach, while she took every class she could, traveling to work with many great teachers. Eventually feeling stymied by the limitations of teaching in the class format, Cooper began studying with Mukunda Stiles. She received her yoga therapy certification from Mukunda in 2014. Mukunda's teacher was T Krishnamacharya, so Cooper’s lineage is rich and illustrious.
Her work is based upon the bedrock the while every body can practice hatha yoga, not every posture is for every body. She is sensitive to the perils of strong physical work in a culture that is body obsessed, and believes that only through the eight-limbed path can we become free from internal friction.
You can expect a traditional class with emphasis on linking postures with the breath to create one pointed focus leading to state change. You will be introduced to concepts from Patanjali Yoga Sutra Darshana.
Cooper currently owns and operates the Antahsara Yoga, part of A Garden For Wellness, located in Clarkesville GA, where she offers private and class instruction as well as yoga therapy session.

After twenty-five years of teaching fitness, I found yoga and it has changed my life. While trying to heal an injury, a mutual teacher suggested that I try a yoga class, and I have never stopped. I am a Yoga Alliance certified Registered Yoga Professional with fifteen years of teaching experience, and continue to learn and explore through workshops and trainings. In my flow classes, designed for all levels, I guide students to modify to find ease (and effort!) in movement and repose. My hope for all of my students is that they are inspired to practice yoga off and on the mat.

My name is Dana Thiele, I am a certified yoga teacher since 2002. I recently received a certification for chair yoga. I have taught in Rabun Gap, Georgia since 2005. I have attended numerous workshops over the years since completing certification. I continue to study and learn online. I teach a gentle Hatha Yoga Class, incorporating floor and standing poses with a little flow as well. My primary teacher was strongly influenced by B.K.S. Iyengar who emphasized proper alignment while practicing yoga poses. Knowing that we are put together differently and one size doesn't fit all, I offer modifications for the poses. Therefore beginners and more experienced students can enjoy the yoga class.
I love teaching and interacting with all yogis and yoginis.
