Power Vinyasa Yoga

This class is taught by:

Ricky Penn

Body Language has been an important part of my life for a LONG time. I started as a member here in 1985 (!) Three owners and 3 locations later, I am still here - working out, practicing yoga, managing the desk, and teaching yoga. Guess you could say I really like this place! I decided to train for and teach yoga to others because it has had such a profound and positive effect on my own life. When I am not here, I am busy with my business as a fiber artist at home in West Bloomfield. My life is blessed with great friends, three wonderful children, and, as a yoga instructor, the opportunity to help my students find their way into yoga and all it has to offer.

Jamie Oldfield

Jamie’s journey of yoga began over 10 years ago, culminating in her certification as a Yoga Teacher. To Jamie, yoga is about revealing your own inner happiness through good music and compassionate surroundings, to find the joy yoga has brought her. She is inspired daily by her husband, 2 children and dog. She believes that what you put out is what you get and that everything we learn on the mat helps us to be healthier and happier off the mat!

Courtney Welch

A certified yoga teacher, Certified Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Courtney is also a certified Paddlefit Level 2 instructor and teaches Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) classes. She founded Inspired By Movement and loves to combine yoga with coaching and essential oils to help slow people down enough to encourage them to move from their head to their heart.

"Yoga reminds me to be present. I came to my mat originally due to back pain and stayed because it was the one place that I knew served as a reset. I love how the practice reminds me to not take myself so seriously, to go with the flow, to listen to my body and that showing up and breathing is enough."

Susan Brennan

Did you know Susan won an award for designing a dress made out of toilet paper?  Her dream vacation is to go back to Norway, and her favorite book is The Alchemist.
Hello! I have always enjoyed fitness and have been a cheerleader for many years. I'm currently a member of the Detroit Pistons Cheer Team. I began practicing yoga (at Body Language) in 2009 after my lung randomly collapsed. I used it as a way to heal and strengthen my body. I consider my personal practice to be playful with strong determination. That comes across in my teaching as well. I feel it is a great honor to be able to share this wonderful gift with others. I look forward to seeing you on your mat!

Ray Casab

I am so grateful for finding yoga and it's an honor to share it with others. I often refer to myself as a yoga addict and an inversion junkie, I just love yoga and standing on my hands! I also love spending time with my friends and family, walking my dogs, traveling to new places, playing on the lake, and trying new things. My favorite foods are fruits especially, watermelon and honeydew! I also have a big sweet tooth, mmm chocolate! My guilty pleasure is taking naps. When I am not doing any of those things I am usually expanding my creative abilities as a web and graphic designer from home.

Nicole Zimmerman

Hi friends! My yoga journey began over six years ago when I fell in love with yoga at Body Language! I had arrived home after years of travel when my practice took an amazing shift. My yoga mat became a sacred space to connect, to truly experience a mind/body union. As my practice bloomed so did my life. I was so inspired by my transformation I decided I had to share this gift.
I completed Andrea's yoga teacher training (RYT 200) in 2012 and have been teaching children and adults ever since. My partner and I have two healthy, happy children (Seayena & Payton) that we adore every moment. See you soon!
