Yoga @ The Twisted Olive | All-Levels Flow


This class is taught by:

Amy Pablo

Amy started her yoga journey at Release Yoga over 3 years ago. She was looking for a good “workout” but
found so much more.  She recently graduated teacher training from Release and is a mother of 3 
beautiful girls. 
 
  • My teaching style is: Warm, loving and about self-exploration. Yoga is about the connection with yourself through yourself.


  • My favorite yoga pose is: Tadasana- Mountain Pose.  This pose allows me to connect and engage every part of my body and mind.


  • Yoga has helped me overcome: Low self-confidence and self worth. My yoga practice has allowed me to connect with my true self and has given me the tools to love and accept myself.


  • I love my eyes because they allow me to see the beauty in the world.

     
  • My favorite goddess is Parvati, Goddess of love and devotion because love is all you need!

     
  • You must try this healthy snack: Vanilla protein shake with banana and spinach.


  • My favorite Sanskrit phrase is Atma Prema – unconditional self-love because it reminds me to love the light in others and myself.


  • My advice for beginning yogis is: Be kind to yourself. Yoga is about the journey not a destination to the poses. It is your journey not anyone else’s.


  • I’m most grateful for: Finding Yoga! It really has changed my life!


  • The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: The beach at sunrise.


  • I am excited to take my yoga practice to the next level because I learn something new every time I come to my mat.


  • My heroes are: My 3 girls. They remind me every day to be present, loving and kind. 


  • My one wish for the world is: for all to be kind. Be kind to others, the planet, and animals and most important to THEMSELVES.

Nate Jackson

Nate completed his 200 hour teacher training and has been teaching yoga for almost a year and practicing for over 5. He sees yoga as a playground for communal healing and challenging growth. When he’s not teaching yoga, Nate works in middle school based mental health with a local nonprofit. He can also occasionally be spotted Heely-ing through the streets of Cleveland.


My teaching style is: down-to-earth and physically innovative (integrated strength and mobility work).

 

My favorite yoga pose is: locust so I can pretend to be a jet (and maybe challenge some ujjayi breathing).

 

Yoga has helped me overcome: neck pain and body shame.

 

You must try this healthy snack: Krave Jerky it's healthy and unconventional flavors of various dehydrated meats.

 

My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is Namaste because I’m basic AF, but seriously because it truly is a lifestyle of appreciating the imago dei (image of God) in everyone.

 

My advice for beginning yogis is: start with your breath. Master your ujjayi (ocean breath)… google it, study it, practice it at least 5 minutes every day for your first month. It affects everything.

 

I’m most grateful for: 8 awesome niblings (nephews and nieces).

 

The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: in my mind… it gets crazy up there.

 

If I could practice yoga with anyone it would be with my beautiful sister, Tricia, because she introduced me to both yoga and a deep well of grace and compassion.

 

My heroes are: Aladdin and Abu.

 

My one wish for the world is: for compassion to become more contagious and invade areas of personal and systemic suffering.

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.
