Owning your own business can be a lot of work, but oh is it worth it! Every day we get to walk into a room filled with our passion, whether it be teaching yoga, TRX, or martial arts. We are living out our dreams!
For myself, Hannah, I know that every person that walks into my class, they are here for a reason. They are looking for health, balance, and healing! It makes my heart swell knowing that these amazing souls have entrusted me in this journey for them!
We teach from the heart and that's one of the things I love so much about Horizon Training Center! Every instructor fully believes in the power of what we do!
Another amazing perk of owning your own business, is being able to give back to the community! David and myself, donate our time and energy into as many great programs as we can. Ranging from Cherokee Family Violence Center, the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter in Cartersville, and the Cherokee County Animal Shelter. From teaching self defense classes for a good cause, or yoga classes, we want to give back to the community of Cherokee County, and those surrounding.
Stay tuned for more charity events that we host!
Do you struggle with depression?
Constant negative thoughts?
Did you ever think that practicing yoga or talking about things could help?
Well it can!! Let Michele Stewart lead you through a very relaxing practice combined with an open and honest conversation about the things no one likes to discuss and see how it makes a difference.
Michele is an amazingly open and honest yoga teacher, who touches every soul she meets! She creates a safe space with each class, opening herself up in hopes that others feel that they are not alone! Her rawness is what makes her so lovable! She allows everyone to work through their own issues, while holding space for each student. Michele has studied under Paul Grilley, a major proponent of Yin Yoga and anatomy. She brings this immense knowledge to each class!
Throughout class, she will show you how talking about these things while snuggling into a yoga posture can bring calmness and stillness to your body and to your mind.
We can guarantee relaxation, conversation, and hopefully a few laughs (guaranteed!) while talking about the tough things in life that helped her change, not only how she sees the world and herself, through the healing power of yoga!
While relaxing into yin postures, we will converse about addiction, depression and anxiety, and how certain yoga postures can help you manage all of the above.
Please be advised that this workshop is meant to be used in conjunction with a physician and/or counselor's care, not to replace professional care.

I'm a cream puff. Nice people call me curvy, voluptuous. Mean people call me chubby.
I've been looking for a workout that speaks to me for years. I've tried a LOT of different things, all of which had different effects on my body.
I tried running. I saw incredibly fast results, but my shins were always sore and I just hated every step.
I tried dance and I loved it more than anything, but it's hard to find dance programs for adults.
Zumba was fun, but I didn't feel like it worked my whole body.
I tried weight lifting but it was so boring.
I looked into Crossfit, but I saw so many people injured and sort of weirdly celebrating that injury - I have no time for a workout that acts as self-punishment instead of self-care.
My yoga teacher steered me toward TRX and after months of being too nervous to start, I finally gave it a try.
I pushed myself too far the first TRX class. I almost couldn't stand up afterwards! I learned my limits fast and as I kept attending classes, I learned how to push them safely. I saw very rapid changes in my body and my energy level. I started losing inches and stopped huffing and puffing up the stairs. I started noticing how much better I felt in class when I had eaten good food during the day leading up to it, and started avoiding junk food.
I'm never bored in TRX because the workouts are always different and changing, and I'm always able to do more than I could in the previous class.
It's exciting, it's fast, it's whole-body, and it's fun!
"Why I TRX!"
Partner yoga is an amazing way to build better communication with others (and not just a significant other), as it teaches us how to attune to others’ energy through non-verbal communication.
We live in a society where we are often taught to be an individual and an individual only, making it difficult for us to connect with others. But “yoga” means “to unite” and connect, not only our own mind, body and spirit, but also with others.
Through partner yoga, we can learn the tools to
connect with people close to us.
Here are some other amazing benefits of partner yoga:
1) Creates Emotional & Physical Support.
We learn to rely on our partner for creating poses as well as maintaining balance to support each other. We also learn to focus together on the end goal: the pose. We have to learn how to enhance our communication, because we will need support from the other person—emotionally and physically. In doing so, we help each other get deeper into our poses than we would without a partner.
2) Being in the Present.
Creating these poses with our partner, we are learning to be in the present moment, which is what ultimately matters the most. The Here. The Now. Yoga is all about mindfulness and cultivating present moment awareness. By bringing focus and control to our breath, we cultivate this present moment awareness. In partner yoga, the cultivation of presence through breath is even more tangible, as we match inhales and exhales, holding space for each other and in turn building off of each other’s mindfulness and stillness.
We get to be kids again. Playing airplane, balancing on one foot—when was the last time you just played like a kid, letting go of adult life? It can bring a new spice to our relationships. It’s an activity that involves us and our significant other with no other worries in the world—other than not dropping the other, maybe.
4) Letting Go.
We learn to let go in the midst of the fun and the moment. We let go of what needs to be done the next day, the next week. We are having too much fun learning about ourselves and our partners that we don’t have time to think about anything else. By allowing ourselves to let go, we are able to tap into the truth of who we are, who our partner is, and why we are together.
5) Building More Self-Awareness & Trust.
This arises from the powerful connection of oneness. When we become more trusting of our partner, we have created a safe place to deepen our own self-trust. We are then able to be more self-aware of our needs. Listening to our breath, we match the breath of our partner, and we connect. We unite. We yoke. We yoga.
6) The Power Of Loving Touch.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around…” ~ Leo Buscaglia.The power of a loving touch is undeniable. It brings us peace, nurturing, connection and love. We learn how to create trust with our partner that will help facilitate our receptiveness to the power of loving touch.
I highly suggest a partner yoga class this love season for you and your significant other—or a friend! Create a connection. Share your love. The world needs more peace and love, and it starts with you!
