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.

Sydney Corbin

Sydney came to her mat at Release about two years ago. Her journey to crafting this life has been a colorful one. As a disciple of Christ, she has found that yoga can be one of many ways she connects with God. You can count on a fiery flow in her classes with a heavy emphasis on the use of breath as a tool to cleanse the mind and body. Sydney has a burning desire to lead her students on a path of falling in love with yoga and growing towards the knowledge of their true self.

 

My teaching style is: Challenging, authentic, and explorative. I love pushing my practice to the edge and playing with new movements.    I love my core because: It's strong and powerful. It holds the fire to my practice. You must try this healthy snack: Avocado and tomato on whole grain seed toast.


My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is ... because: Ahimsa: Nonharmning.“Ahimsa” is as the absence of violence but also conscious consideration and love for one’s self and others.

My advice for beginning yogis is: Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, Listen to it and respect what it tells you. 

I’m most grateful for:Every twist and turn in the road that lead me to where I am today. Because it led me to exactly where I'm meant to be - RIGHT HERE!  The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: Off the grid in the mountains of Oahu, Hawaii!
