Flow Level 1-2


This class is taught by:

Jacqueline Johnson

Jacque (EdD, RYT-500) has been practicing yoga since 1976, and after much coaxing began teaching in 1992. She teaches several styles of yoga, primarily Sivananda and more recently Viniyoga. She also teaches vinyasa flow, restorative, Vipassana meditation, guided imagery meditation, and yoga therapy. She has been an academic in health behavior, health psychology, and health promotion for 15 years. As an academic, Jacque has collaborated on research investigating the changes in brain activity during specific elements of yoga. She was also one of the developers of a 200hr yoga teacher training of a university curriculum as a minor. She has recently moved to NC from DC, and is excited to inspire others on their journey towards a fulfilling life.

Sara Doyle

Sara Doyle (PhD, E-RYT 500) has a Ph.D in Anatomy and has taught anatomy to medical students, residents and undergraduates at Duke University since 2003. She has a thorough understanding of the human body and the anatomy of movement. Sara has spent thousands of hours in the anatomy lab and participated in the dissection of hundreds of cadavers, giving her a unique perspective on how the body works and the anatomical variation between individuals. Her yoga classes and workshops reflect a science based perspective and include the most current research available.

Sara has completed two 200hr trainings - the first with Sarah Trelease, and the second more recently with Srivatsa Ramaswami, direct student of Krishnamacharya. She has also completed a 300hr training. Currently, Sara is enrolled in the MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) teaching program at the UMass Center for Mindfulness. She has attended several retreats and trainings and incorporates mindfulness into her teaching at all levels.

Sara's yoga classes are physically challenging and energetic, with an emphasis on alignment, anatomy and mindfulness. Sara provides clear verbal and physical adjustments to allow the body to discover each pose and each moment. Her goal is to allow the practice to speak for itself.

Beth Perry

Beth's first exposure to yoga was in a high school gym class in the 1990s, but she didn't begin to practice it in earnest until after she graduated college in 2002 in New York. In the years that followed, she enjoyed the opportunity to study with a number of teachers. In addition to numerous physical benefits, Beth finds that yoga helps her to be more patient with herself and others.
Beth completed her 200-hour teacher training at Blue Point through OM Yoga Center in 2012, and completed Blue Point's 85-hour prenatal teacher training with Andrea Dixon and Sara Doyle in 2015. She strives to make her classes welcoming to everyone, and values the wealth of experiences that different students bring to their practice. She loves being part of the Blue Point community, where she remains a committed student as well as a teacher.
Beth works as a program coordinator at the Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke, where she organizes conferences, workshops, and events for Duke and visiting scholars. She's an avid cook and baker, and loves to take advantage of the great food Durham has to offer. She lives in Durham with her husband, Matthew, son, Marc, and their terrier mix, Bobo.

Her classes focus on cultivating a deep awareness of the body at the cellular level in order to allow the breath to guide one's movement.
This class is a bridge between the Yoga Basics class and Flow Level 2. Creative sequencing and a focus on alignment will help student to move their practice forward. Although we don’t practice advanced poses, you will likely still be challenged. This class is appropriate for beginning students. More advanced students are always welcome.
