Tonya feels yoga has vastly improved her physical and mental wellbeing. This led her to become one of Real Hot Yoga's top yoga teacher training graduates from the Knoxville training in summer of 2015.
Her desire to help others is what originally led her to the nursing field and to teaching yoga: to help people, make people feel better, and make a difference in peoples lives. She left patient care about a year ago to focus on her own health. Between teaching yoga and volunteering with different organizations, Tonya is committed to continuing to help others.
Johnson City is excited to have her leading both Baptiste inspired power yoga classes as well as her own creatively sequenced power yoga classes.
Tonya Cornwell instructs the following:
Hot Power Yoga - Level 1
Hot Flow/Hot power/Hot vinyasa - Call it what you want, it’s one of our favorite classes!
Power yoga offers an excellent way to tone & strengthen muscles, increase heart rate, and burn calories…and then some! The hot room, 95 will make you sweat giving your body an awesome detoxification. Challenge yourself, feel great, and prepare to power through the rest of your day… or evening.
Don't let the "level 1" fool you! Level 1 simply means more detailed descriptions, and optional/revised poses taught, but first timer or experienced yogis will both get a GREAT workout!
Hot Flow and Yin - all levels
This blend of Flow and Yin starts with power yoga to keep you strong and finishes with deep therapeutic stretching that will keep you injury free. The first half of class will be breath based vinyasa flow to build strength and flexibility, challenging your balance and concentration, and harnessing that energy to promote inner stillness and peace. The second half of class finds you on your mat holding yin poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored tension. The 2 styles together are amazingly transformative! The room will be heated to 95 degrees.
