Anita
Slow Flow, Power Flow

Anita has been teaching yoga for eight years. She likes to teach yoga because she appreciates having the opportunity to share the practice she loves and witness the transformation that can occur in students over the span of just one class. Anita believes that physical activity is important for U of M students because physical activity is such a wonderful way to re-connect with the body and expand the boundaries of our comfort zone. (Anita’s favorite healthy snack is watermelon when it is in season, or apple slices with sun butter. Give it a try!)

Bhavani
Power Flow, Slow Flow

Bhavani likes teaching yoga because growing up, she was never an athlete and was always intimidated by sports and physical activity. She loves to teach to bring out peoples’ inner confidence and to help them feel energized and ready to face anything. Fun fact: Bhavani was influenced by yoga at a young age by her grandfather, who was a Sanskrit professor, and her exposure to the Bhagavad Gita, certain portions of which she memorized for competitions at her temple.

To her, teaching classes is more than just leading a workout – it’s building a community of people who come together and share an experience. Her favorite thing about U of M is the amazing and strong organizational behavior, sociology, and psychology departments! She feels truly fortunate to be a part of a powerhouse of thinkers. And for a fun fact, Elizabeth participated in an archaeological dig at Catalhoyuk, Turkey for a summer during undergrad at Stanford. She found a worship site as well as exhumed a skeleton by herself!

Mack
Zumba

Mack’s favorite part of Ann Arbor is being able to walk everywhere and explore! She spots something new that she didn’t notice before every time she walks around campus or through the city (although her walks around the city may not be quite the same as the time she climbed an active volcano in Nicaragua). She likes to teach because she loves the idea of being able to lead a workout that doesn’t necessarily feel like a workout. People can come to class just to move and have fun knowing that they are doing something good for their minds and bodies.

Sarah M
STRONG by Zumba

Sarah feels that physical activity is important for the U of M community because beyond the physical benefits, activity helps with well-being and learning in other areas of life. Most importantly, she has noticed that physical activity is another area for students, herself included, to let go of perfection and learn that progress, growth, and learning are part of everything. (Fun facts: Sarah recently trained her dog to stop eating her running socks, and she also has lived in Spain twice)

Taryn
Power Flow, Slow Flow

Taryn’s health philosophy is to always honor YOUR body! Do not compare yourself to others. This closely aligns with why she enjoys teaching yoga: she loves building a sense of community. Yoga has been a powerful component in her life, and she enjoys passing on that same love and appreciation to her participants. Taryn feels that physical activity is important to the U of M community because it allows time for a break, time for yourself, and time for you to give back to your body. Breaks are just as important as studying and working!

Teaching also helps Xueye to relieve stress and meet more people. Her health philosophy is that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.
