Athena LeMay is known for her dynamic, grounding, and intuitive yoga classes influenced by her personal practice in Vinyasa, Yin, and Tantric Hatha Yoga.
She began her yoga journey in 2011 where her life took a positive change as she opened her heart to receiving the life lessons presented in her yoga practice. Athena completed her 200-hour teacher training in January 2016, and has been teaching and studying even more since then. She uses yoga to mobilize her body and expand her wisdom to live a purposeful life with more compassion and empathy.
As a teacher, Athena aims to guide students toward cultivating an inner-awareness while building strength and flexibility of both body and mind. Her creative yoga classes are centered on the power of the breath, and include dynamic vinyasa flow asanas. Expect detailed attention to alignment in an attempt to discover the subtleties of each posture, while using the breath to find a sense of lightness and ease. Her classes are an inner journey towards healing and empowerment accompanied by a thoughtful playlist, and always includes a short meditation.
Athena’s yoga practice is her favorite way to access a more expansive, integrated state of being. She encourages taking the practice of yoga into the day-to-day experiences of life.
