Mélanie Shawn Seney
Mélanie has a clear message: cultivate your uniqueness!
A Montréal (QC, Canada) based personal trainer for 20 years, Mélanie has worked with clients of various horizons and implemented Yoga classes in the corporate world with the goal of democratizing Yoga and making it accessible to all.
With a Physical Education degree; and many Yoga certifications (800 hrs between Kripalu; Yin; Therapeutic; CSV) under her belt, as well as a passion for dance, sports and all form of creative movement, Mélanie merges the scientific knowledge with the global perspective of holistic health disciplines.
When Mélanie discovered Sadie’s teaching and approach: it was love at first Asana! Finally, an empowering yet organic practice encouraging each to move instinctively from our deepest resources. This practice rocked Melanie’s world from the inside out, and now there is no going back!
With a desire to share Core Strength Vinyasa so that each person can feel a deeper connection and cultivate what makes each of us unique, Mélanie’s teaching is geared towards an anatomically safe and movement efficiency practice, led with humor and compassion. Respectful of students limits but also in constant (r)evolution, her classes begin on a gentle note, with a clear commitment to treat yourself right and embrace who, and where you are in this exact moment.
Then the work starts. Some side effects of the practice: sweat running down your back and a fired-up core! But you will mostly gain empowerment and an appreciation for your own body, mind, heart and spirit. (Re)Discovering the unique YOU. Namasté.
Metal Yoga PDX – It’s not about perfection. Sweat. Breath. Rock out. Embrace your weird.
A feisty wild child at heart with a soul full of fire! I am the only CSV Metal Yoga teacher on the West Coast. Let’s break down barriers, and rock the world!
I offer a unique twist on yoga, embracing both the light and dark within us, and I am passionate about organic movement, nurturing your authenticity and guiding fellow badass yoga teachers through training and support programs. The spaces we practice in, the walls come down. The idea of what yoga ‘should’ be, and more about a chill space for you to be YOU!
CSV has changed my body, mind and soul. My intention is to provide a killer vibe and rockin’ tunes with yoga, allowing you to live a happier life that serves you on a deeper level.
I’ve studied with both Jill Knouse and Sadie Nardini and I am a 200 ERYT and a 500 RYT. I am the baby of all the CSV Master Teachers…and I’m stoked to be able to share it with you!
Karin Thyr Eriksson
Karin Thyr Eriksson is an artist, musician, and yogi who believes that yoga is for everybody. To find balance in life, on and off the mat she needs both a sweaty session on the mat, one in the studio singing her heart out, a healthy meal, sweet potato fries, salty licorice (yes that’s a thing!) and a glass of wine! She is a mother of two and a wife to her life companion of 21 years. This awesome style of yoga keeps her grounded and makes her fly at the same time!
Her background is an on – off, hate – love relationship with yoga for close to 20 years but when she found Sadie Nardini and CSV Yoga it was a instant love. Suddenly everything felt right and most of all she started to not only like but love her body and feeling strong from the inside out. Karin has studied with Sadie for many years and traveld both to Germany and USA to complete her 500 hour training and become the first master teacher in this style to be teaching in Swedish. Karins classes are fun, empowering with a strong core message that “you are enough”. Karin teaches workshops, Teacher Trainings (In the fall of 2018 Karin is offering the first – ever TT in Swedish!) and weekly classes at here studio YOGADA located in an Rococo Palace on the island of Färingsö, 30 minutes outside of Stockholm.
