For some Yoga may be considered a philosophy, a practice, a work out, a way of life or just yoga. We are born into
this world with an inhale and we leave with an exhale. Life is a cycle. Everything comes to us in cycles. With yoga, one is able to enjoy these cycles of life with the use of breathe, also known as Prana. Pranayama is the art of practicing your breathe to control the obstacles created by your actions in this beautiful world.
Yoga helps your mental, physical, and spiritual being.
Yoga give your mind a constant clarity by nourishing your physical being with the fresh flow of oxygen throughout your veins, organs, muscles, and mind.
As you inhale your body takes in pure oxygen. On your exhale your body releases toxins and everything negative. This oxygen is carried throughout your body and mind which helps to purify all of your senses. You start to taste, feel, and smell things differently, hear and see more clearly.
Your body becomes alive. You begin to feel more peaceful within yourself. More than anything you will begin to notice they way you view life and the way life views you seems different. Better.
Come and experience the beauty of yoga. Come and discover the peace that has always existed within yourself and this exciting world.

Jennifer Campbell-Overbeeke, E-RYT200 :
A dancer, swimmer and general explorer since she could walk Jennifer found
her way on to the mat for the first time in college. After years of dealing with a aggressive case of Crohn’s disease her once strong body and jubilant spirit felt broken. Yoga changed that. Transcending a physical act, the practice became the fabric of both a healing process and a personal evolution. A full time teacher and student of Hathavidya, Jennifer teaches with both an intuitive gentility and intelligent power; dancing across the lines of shadow and light to reveal to the individual a recognition of who they are beyond all that. Soham Hamsa. She challenges students to explore physical and mental edges with perseverance, faith and a heaping side of humor!
“The prudent (or spiritual-minded) person attains success through faith; none other can succeed. It should be practiced with care and perseverance.” Siva Samhita 3.16
When not teaching Jennifer enjoys cuddling with her three dogs, spending time with her husband and best friend, and exploring nature and it’s divine reflection. Her favorite place in the world is a grassy mountain top on the Blue Ridge Parkway where the wind speaks familiar and kind words to her soul. She is in the process of finding more of these special places across the world from Bali to Sedona. She expresses sincere gratitude to her teachers for their faith, perseverance and unwavering commitment to bringing ancient lineage into the modern world.
My yoga method is a non-interventionist, non-corrective system. Students are given progressively organized techniques
to protect their bodily-health and are encouraged not to judge the correctness of their performances. Instead of stressing over the rightness or the wrongness of their actions, students shift their focus to the reality of their present state, forming the self-confidence and practical understanding that determines their own evolution in the system. In the process, students learn about their rigid habit formations and effectively reform their bodies through consciousness of stance, hip-gait, pelvic-angle, foot-usage, gesture, breath, digestion, metabolization, vision, vocalization, inner-dialog, and attitude.
