This class is taught by:

Pattie Wagner (E-RYT 200)

Pattie Wagner, E-RYT 200 and YACEP®, took yoga when she was four years old with her flower child mom. Yoga found her again when she had her second son and needed a release from a demanding career in a foreign city. Over 16 years, she has practiced a broad variety of yoga styles including Power, Bikram, Hatha, Ashtanga, Restorative, Yin, Iyengar and "crappy work yoga" and infused them all into her teaching style (minus the crappy parts, of course). She is E-RYT 200, Thai Massage Yoga and Reiki Level II certified and is the process of completing her RYT 500.  

  • My teaching style is: Very hands on, fun, upbeat and spiritual. I love assisting my students, so be prepared for adjustments, neck rubs and guidance.

  • My favorite yoga pose is: Padahastasana! I love the release that Gorilla pose provides.  It’s a simple forward fold that is accessible to all levels of yogis. It also calms the mind, helps with digestion and improves circulation in your hands and wrists. It’s great for people who work on computers all day long.
  • Yoga has helped me overcome: Wow, so much. I began practicing when my 2nd son was born to help with post-partum depression. From there, I fell in love! Anything is possible on a yoga mat.
  • My favorite music to practice to is: I love heavier music such as Florence & the Machine and the Black Keys for a power class. I get a lot of help from my sons who help keep my music cutting edge ... I love offering a brand new sound or unknown artist to my students, especially local CLE bands such as The Modern Electric. 
  • I love my: Eyes and hair. My eyes are hazel and can turn to a beautiful complex green/gold. My hair? I rarely blow it dry and (WHEN) I bother to style it, looks AMAZING.
  • My favorite goddess is: Akhilandeshvari. She is the “The Always Broken Goddess”.  Basically, she celebrates that we are always just a little broken, a little on the edge. This allows us to try something new and unfathomable in our lives and break away from our toxic routines or attachments. And she rides on a crocodile … how cool is that?!  There is a great article about her on Elephant Journal by JC Peters. Check it out!
  • You must try this healthy snack: Sprouted pumpkin seeds. I love their mealy texture.
  • My favorite Sanskrit phrase is: "Om Namah Shivaya". Chanting this mantra is incredibly powerful … be careful what you wish for!
  • My advice for beginning yogis: Focus on building the very basics of your practice. Your breath is everything and will guide you both physically and spiritually. Don’t worry about how flexible or strong you are … and don’t worry about the heat, Release has plenty of options! 
  • I’m most grateful for: My wonderful family who supported me when I took on the major life change of starting my own yoga studio. I may be crazy, but I’m loved!
  • The most exotic place that I’ve practiced yoga is: Tahiti in my personal hut by the water. Wait, that hasn’t happened yet!
  • If I could practice yoga with anyone, it would be: Adam Levine and Bradley Cooper. Brad (he lets me call him Brad) and I would practice at the back of the room and giggle at Adam showing off.  But when Brad wasn't looking I would be completely gawking at Adam :-)
  • I want to take my yoga to the next level by: Assisting all of the fabulous Release teachers and students in reaching their full potential.  
  • My heroes are: Anita Roddick (founder of The Body Shop), Maxine Clark (founder of Build a Bear) and Oprah (founder of everything). They each built profitable businesses from the core of their passions, took immense risks, and focused on giving back to their employees and communities. And they did it with kindness, compassion, fun and profitability. That’s the way business should be!
  • My one wish for the world is: Be kind. Be grateful. Be forgiving.

Serenity Messner

Serenity's yoga journey began about six years ago as a way to supplement her workout routine. She found so much positive change and growth through her yoga practice that deepening her journey and sharing yoga with others was a must! She is a recently certified 200 RYT and loves to go anywhere and everywhere to take yoga workshops! She has taken workshops with Bryan Kest, Dylan Werner, and Kino MacGregor, and hopes to continue to travel and learn from teachers all over. Serenity believes that combining the physical movement with a steady intentional breath and calm mind is a recipe for excellent self care and a joyful life.

  • My teaching style is: Creative and spiritual. I aim to create a space where people can tune into their bodies and freely explore. I hope that people leave feeling amazing and maybe learned something new about themselves in the process.

  • My favorite yoga pose is: Dekasana (airplane pose)! I really used to dislike one-legged balancing poses. They can be so challenging! I’ve grown to love airplane because of the amount of engagement and opening I feel throughout my body. I am soaring strong with my heart leading the way.

  • Yoga has helped me overcome: Anxiety and reactiveness. My whole perspective changed when I finally realized what it meant to take my yoga “off of the mat” – finding acceptance, breath, and trust when I find myself at my edge with daily frustrations, relationships, and everything in between!

  • I love my arms because: They make me feel both strong and at ease. I grow strong in my body through my physical yoga practice and soften when I can open my arms and receive all that is coming.

  • My favorite deity or god/goddess is Krishna because: He stands for joy and destroys pain. He was born to establish the religion of love!

  • You must try this healthy snack: Apples and almond butter. Yum!

  • My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is ‘prapatti‘ because: It means “surrender.” I find that often when I am struggling or frustrated with something, it is rooted in resistance. Surrendering allows us to learn from what the situation is offering rather than being clouded by resistance, stubbornness, ignorance, etc. 

  • My advice for beginning yogis is: Begin! Yoga only requires that you show up and tune into your body. It is an ongoing journey, which is amazing because you never have to “arrive” anywhere. You can just learn and grow and be. If you have the willingness to start, you are a warrior! Enjoy the process.

  • I’m most grateful for: My family. I consider everyone in my life to be part of my family. People who are there to support and love you in all of the big and small ways. I am grateful to have those people to make life more vibrant.

  • The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: Cancun, Mexico!

  • If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be Rachel Brathen because: She has such an honest and relatable story, and that sort of rawness is engaging to me. Yoga has helped her heal through some of life’s toughest challenges, and I think it would be impactful to practice with someone who is really honest with who she is and where she’s been.

  • I’m excited to take my yoga to the next level because: I dig a little deeper and learn a little more about myself each time I get on my mat. Doing something great for my body, mind, and spirit is the greatest form of multitasking there is!

  • My heroes are: Anyone fighting to create more peace in our increasingly destructive world.

  • My one wish for the world is: Be less violent and love each other more. I wish that people would stop acting as if we are all so different. When we can look at someone else and see ourselves, we can stop the violence.


Tiffany Luc

Tiffany originally came to her mat to help her overcome post-partum depression and anxiety - it worked, and so much more! Since then, she has found her individual identity and a deep passion to help others so she enrolled in teacher training and is now a RYT-200. Her favorite quote is "Don't take life too seriously, none of us get out alive" and strives to create a fun yet empowering environment for her students while they are on their mat so they can carry that with them when they leave.
My teaching style is: Fun, inspiring and empowering. I want my students to leave knowing they are enough and be proud of themselves.

My favorite yoga pose is: Half Moon. I always feel so open and strong in this pose!

Yoga has helped me overcome: My loss of self as well as depression and anxiety. Yoga has proved to me that I can still be Tiff as well as mom, wife, friend, etc. There is something so powerful about taking the time out for yourself!

I love my: FEET! What can I say? They carry me through life with strength but also sometimes trip me up to make sure I am paying attention!

My favorite Deity or god/goddess is: Ganesha! Remover of obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, what's not to love?

You must try this healthy snack: Apples dipped in peanut butter that has been mixed with cinnamon oil and granola

My favorite sanskrit word is: Ahimsa, nonviolence. I apply this to my life in so many ways. We must learn to be non-violent with others as well as ourselves. I believe this is the road we must travel to true contentment.

My advice for beginning yogis: Approach yoga with a light heart and an open mind. You will fall, you will step out of your comfort zone, but you will grow as yoga does it's work on you! Go with it and stay grateful in the journey!

I'm most grateful for: My family for their unwavering support and encouragement.
Most exotic place I've practiced: Cancun, Mexico

If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be: Bryan Kest (again!) He is such an inspiring person all around!

I am excited to take yoga to the next level because I am working towards completing my RYT-200 as well as discover pre-natal and post-natal yoga first hand and I cannot wait to share my knowledge!

My heroes are: First time yogis. You made it to your mat, and that is inspiring to me!

My one wish for the world is: To be kind to one another - you never know the other person's story.   

Tonya Harriman-Fowler (E-RYT 200)

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.
