Genevieve Barba

Yoga Instructor

gbarba@genesishealthclubs.com

I have been practicing yoga since 1997. I came to yoga with a background of more than 10 years of dance training. Then and now, I love that yoga brings strength, flexibility and challenging new ways to move the body. I also treasure the clarity and peace of mind I experience in yoga.

 

In 2008 I completed the registration requirements of the  200 hour registration with Yoga Alliance. I cherish that as a teacher I am able to help others improve their lives through yoga practice. Yoga is for everyone, whether you choose a vigorous, flowing class or a session of deep stretching. I would like anyone interested in yoga to know that you don’t have to be flexible to start doing yoga. Come as you are. Practice regularly and you will see the benefits. 

 

I am continuing my yoga education under the guidance of Renee DeTar, Regional Yoga Director of Genesis Health Clubs. In my personal practice I love the challenge of arm balances, inversions and backbends. In all classes, safety and alignment are emphasized. I teach Gentle Yoga, Yoga I, Vinyasa and Power classes at Rock Road. I am available for yoga private lessons for those who would like a personalized, focused experience of yoga.

CJ McClellan

Yoga Instructor

info@genesishealthclubs.com

CJ lives to learn, laugh and play! His love for fitness is what led him to yoga.  Looking for a physically challenging and athletic cross-training activity he decided to give yoga a shot.  He swiftly fell in love with the practice and was filled with an eagerness to return to his mat day after day. Shortly after finding yoga, CJ decided to take it one step further and completed yoga teacher training and after completing his training he dove in head first and began teaching.

CJ teaches rigorous, athletic, vinyasa style classes. He loves playing with arm balances and the challenge they offer, so expect them in class!  His classes are stimulating, playful, upbeat and accessible to all levels.

CJ continues his practice daily, both on and off the mat; he hopes that through teaching he can instill in other yogis the same connection that calls him to love yoga, and more importantly he wants to leave them with a huge, happy smile. Be Courageous. Be Spontaneous. Be Fearless.

Mollie Smith

Yoga Instructor

molliesmith14@yahoo.com

Mollie has been practicing yoga for over six years and is diligently working on her RYT 200hr teaching certification through Yoga Alliance—largely by the inspiration and instruction of her gifted mentor, Beth Banks. Mollie has completed Yoga Teacher Training for Health & Fitness Professionals with Beth Banks.

 

Fitness has been a part of Mollie’s life from an early age, swimming before she could walk, learning to ski at age 3, and dancing ballet with the Metropolitan Ballet of Wichita during her youth and formative years. She still remembers her mom doing Jane Fonda workouts in the living room--learning an early life lesson about minding our bodies and taking care of ourselves from the inside out.

 

It took only a brief introduction to yoga to get Mollie hooked, as the physical and mental effects of the practice were evident immediately. She relishes in the idea that yoga truly is a practice, embracing all ages and physical skill levels, meeting the student exactly where they are today.   She hopes to impart the physical benefits of strength and mobility along with the mental benefits of relaxation and clarity during each class she leads. Mollie’s excitement about yoga and her passion for sharing the practice is infectious.
