Bio


A FEW GOOD TEACHERS

 

We can proudly claim, we have the very best teachers in their dicipline.

At Second Side, we cultivate environs in which instructors can share their passion and craft with those willing to learn, and in which students can develop their skills above and beyond those of their teachers.

We have always believed that happy teachers teach better classes, and better classes make for happy students. To that end, we want to compensate our instructors fairly for the tremendous role they play in the development of our studio and students. As shown above, a substantial part of your financial contribution goes to our instructors. Without our amazingly talented teachers, we cannot foster the open, community-focused studio we have all come to love.

JONAS PARK

 

With dedication to students and devotion to yoga, Jonas teaches challenging creative Vinyasa Power Flow Yoga.  He credits his style of teaching to many unsung hero teachers who, rather than seeking fame, chose to teach local and share love of yoga.  Jonas is a firm believer of "leading by example."  Not forgetting his humble beginning, he is grateful to those who offered him teaching opportunities, among several are super yoga palace (local) and Yoga Yama (Sweden) .  Jonas also teaches at Equinox Highland Park location.

LAURA FONVILLE

Laura Fonville has a lifelong background and interest in developing the physical form into art. She was introduced to yoga in 2004, and began teaching in 2008 with some local certifications. In 2009, she completed a 200-hour teaching certification with her teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. In 2010, she completed a 300-hour teaching certification with her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life in the Jivamukti method.  After years of working, studying and refining traditional methods, Laura completed a teacher training certification with Sage Rountree that focused on teaching yoga to athletes. This aids her in serving students who come to yoga as a complement for an underlying training regimen. It also built upon her earliest training certifications from The Cooper Institute of Dallas in biomechanics of weight training, personal training and aerobics.

MELISSA RAMOS

Yoga is the relationship that is built between the body, the mind and the breath.  My intention is to provide a space and practice for others to explore the dynamic relationship between breath and movement.

I compeleted my 200hr teacher training with Second Side Yoga.  Prior to getting my YTT I had been practicing yoga for 5 years.  I began practicing yoga for flexibility but after developing my practice I began falling in love with the movement on and off the mat that transformed all aspects of my life.
