Hatha/Basic Flow

This class is taught by:

Cherokee Sullinger

Cherokee first began practicing yoga as a child but ultimately committed to her practice in college when she realized she needed a way to manage stress and find balance in her life. She’s been in LC for almost four years, and has been practicing and working the front desk at Indigo for just over two years. With her teaching, she hopes to motivate other yogis (and herself) to discover more about helping themselves to heal and find satisfaction in their daily practice.

Nicole Mandall

I got into yoga about five years ago in Ethiopia. It was an escape from the problems I saw everyday and stress of living in a small African village. Yoga gave me the confidence to face the issues surrounding me and eventually a way to bond with the people around me. Yoga was a universal language that bridged the communication barrier. My passion for sharing yoga has grown ever since. I have mostly taught yoga with youth and adolescents who are HIV+ as a tool to manage anxiety and increase self -esteem. Also doing fun and creative yoga classes with children. I received my 200ryt in India focusing mostly on traditional breath, Hatha, and a little flow! I just moved to Las Cruces to begin my Masters of Public Health and hope to continue sharing and learning about the healing spirit of yoga with the communities here!

Meg Long

Meg Long began her 13 + years of yoga practice while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya. She found the meditative aspect of yoga helped to maintain her mental well-being while working with high risk populations in extremely stressful environments. Throughout her 14 years of successful work in Social Services, she has found yoga to be a strong foundation for staying motivated and determined. Her love of helping others through difficult times led to a transition into teaching, initially through trauma informed yoga for community members recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. She found not only does the meditative aspect of yoga help with emotion healing, but also with physical healing. Though the Hot 26 series, Meg was able to heal her torn rotator cuff without the aid surgery. She also works for the Wellness, Alcohol, and Violence Education program at NMSU and teaches several Public Health courses.
PS She loves the heat, hope you do to!

Saharu Oda

Saharu dove deeply into practice in NYC. Through yoga, Saharu was able to find grounding during her dental school years and in her go-go-go lifestyle of living in NYC. She is extremely grateful of her experience of living in in the city where there are yoga studios on every block. Due to that, she was able to experience many styles of yoga such as: Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, Prana Flow, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Kundalini to name a few. Saharu hopes to bring the same love she experienced through yoga to her community to help them cope with their daily stresses. With that intention, she was motivated to open Indigo Yoga here in Las Cruces. She aspires to create the inner-calmness that she finds every time she settles into her mat after her long day of work as a dentist.
