Yoga Core and Meditation


This class is taught by:

Carrie Amott

Carrie began her journey with yoga in 2004 at the age of 19 while living in New Orleans. Over the next decade and a half her practice would lead her to discover many styles of yoga over a range of many different places. In 2012 she moved to Southeast Alaska, and in 2016 she discovered Ashtanga yoga and adopted it as her personal practice. In 2017 she met Jodee Dixon and began a partnership in an effort to bring yoga to those in Juneau struggling with the mental and physical disease of addiction. In June 2018 she completed her 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training under Jodee at The Yoga Path, where she now has the honor to teach.

Carrie's fascination with yoga began because she wanted to attain both the physical and mental benefits of the practice. And over time, the breath and postures have led to refinement of her awareness of both the inner-self and the exterior-world. In many instances this has allowed her to find her way out of imbalance and back to a state of wellness.

For Carrie yoga is a portal to contentment, balance, strength, fluidity, enlightenment, and access to unspoken truth and extended vitality (to name a few). She is grateful that in this life she has the opportunity to help guide others on their own yoga path.

Jodee Dixon

Jodee was initially drawn to yoga in 1998 for the benefits of relieving back pain. The feeling of physical well-being led to an awareness of how yoga can nurture the mind and body. This personal experience fuels Jodee’s wish to share yoga with each student willing to learn.

Jodee has studied with senior teachers Matthew Sweeney and Iain Grysak. In 2013, Jodee completed 7 weeks of study with Iain Grysak in Whitehorse.  Recently Jodee has begun studing with Fiona Stang.  She is a registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, receiving RYT 200 in 2008 and currently E-RYT 200, with over 3000 hours of teaching experience. Jodee is also the lead Instructor for the Teacher Training program at The Yoga Path.

Through experience with personal injuries, balancing yoga practice with life and overcoming challenges in her own yoga practice, Jodee has developed the ability and compassion to assess and teach yoga in a truly accessible method. Common encouragement from Jodee: “Rather than wanting a good practice or the right circumstances, just begin practicing yoga and the details will work themselves out as you begin to feel the benefits”.

Jennifer McFerran

Jennifer began practicing yoga in 2008. Her practiced has evolved over the years from the physical to the internal transformation of yoga. Initially she tried all different styles of yoga to see what suited her most and in 2010 she discovered Ashtanga Yoga with Lou Gaccione in Rhode Island. She quickly fell in love with the tristana method of breath, dhristi, and asana. A couple of years later she stopped practicing due to having kids and finding it difficult to find time to practice with little ones. However, that’s when she discovered she needed it most. After her second baby was born she start picking up her practice again and really focused on the internal aspects of what the practice could do for a mother of two small children. She completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training from Krysia Yoga in 2018 with a focus on the Ashtanga Lineage. She has also taken workshops and Mysore practice with Kino MacGregor, Marque Garaux, and Taylor Hunt. She continues to deepen her own practice and knowledge of yoga by studying with Jodee Dixon
What is different from Yoga ore compared to other core classes? Connecting with your breathing and appropriate level of challenge. We love offering options so you can keep increasing the intensity to the next step as long as you can breathe and be steady in your body. No pain in the joints, but shaking muscles encouraged. The aim is the quality movement without compromising healthy alignment.
Wind down this practice with 5 to 10 minutes or Pranayama and/or Meditation and at least 5 minutes of rest. Ideal for those not making time for this at home or as a daily practice. Some classes will utilize specific breathing patterns or pranayama prior to or instead of meditation. If you have a favorite meditation technique or style, you are welcome to practice it during this time.
Meditation…Generally, we accept that meditation is sitting quietly with a focused and calm mind. Meditation would be the state a person is in when the mind is completely present. For most of us, this is not possible in the beginning, but the benefits of working on it are immense! In this class, you will be guided through one of many techniques to focus the mind. There are many methods to concentrate the mind towards a state of meditation, yoga or complete union. Join us for your practice today.
