Tonya Harriman-Fowler


Tonya Harriman-Fowler has been a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and a esthetician for the past 16 years. She feels that taking care of the body as a whole is the best approach. Yoga feeds her body and mind and she opes to make it a bigger part of her life.
 
 
 
  • I Got Into Massage Because: I enjoyed receiving massages myself and was very aware of the therapeutic benefits. Massage is a great stress reducer as well as an all over better health influence. I wanted to share this experience with others while educating clients as to the benefits of massage. Touch is key. Every person should incorporate massage into their lives. It is a necessity, not a luxury.

 

  • Yoga and Massage Has: Helped me live in the now, reduce stress and discomfort, increase flexibility and be more aware how important my health is.

 

  • My Favorite Music is: THE 80’S!!!

 

  • I Love My: Hands because of the relief, pleasure, and comfort they can provide to others. I also love my 3 4-legged children; Boozoo, Bear, and Binky.

 

  • My Advice for a Beginning Yogi or Massage Client is:Just do it! Quit talking about trying it and just walk in or call to schedule. I drove past the Release studio for almost a year telling myself I would stop in one of these days…so glad I did! Wished I hadn’t waited so long. Release is a great place to be a part of and great people work here!

 

  • I Am Most Grateful For: My SUPER supportive husband David.

 

  • My Healthy Snack: KIND bars for something sweet. I have one in my purse and tote bag at all times.

 

  • My Heros Are: My clients!

 

  • My Wish For the World: More respect and education for animal advocacy.
 

Yoga Dave Ajamie


Dave Ajamie attended his first yoga class at IBH (where he currently works) in 2013. It was a perfect fit for him! He loves helping people on and off their mat, so much so, that he's affectionately been nicknamed "Yoga Dave."


 
  • My teaching style is: Peaceful and powerful. I love the inner peace and outer strength that your mat can bring you!
 
  • My favorite yoga pose is: Vrkasana (tree pose). With all its variations, it’s a perfect combination of peace and strength.
 
  • Yoga has helped me overcome: The chaos of life. Coming to my mat always brings me back in harmony with what is good in life.
 
  • My favorite music to practice to is: Traditional yoga music. Artists such as Krishna Das.
 
  • I love my head: Because it’s bald and shiny!
 
  • My favorite sanskrit word is: Namaste, because it acknowledges the beauty in all of us.
 
  • You must try this healthy snack: Kind bars, varieties of all kinds. They’re good for you, but more importantly, they’re delicious.
 
  • My advice for beginning yogis is: KNOW that every moment you are trying to get better, YOU are already getting better in anything you do!
 
  • I’m most grateful for: Love of all forms. Connecting with other people and sharing love is life’s purpose.
 
  • The most exotic place that I’ve practiced yoga is: On a standup paddleboard, it’s a great experience!
 
  • If I could practice yoga with anyone, it would be: Baron Baptiste. His books and practice are inspiring!
 
  • I’m inspired to take my yoga to the next level: Every time I get on my mat. There’s always something that inspires me from my mat.
 
  • My heroes are: Anyone who takes time and help people before anything else they had to do.
 
  • My one wish for the world is: That we would all just love one another and treat each other accordingly.
