“Lokah Samastah Suhkino Bhavantu.”
I'm a sophomore in college at Ole Miss but my heart lies in Atlanta where I was born and raised. My face may seem familiar possibly because I am Carly Grace's younger sister/twin separated at birth. Along with Carly Grace, I have another wonderful older sister Erica and two wonderful parents, Melissa and Scott. They often frequent the studio as well. I am an avocado enthusiast. My weaknesses include The Kardashians, Jeni's Ice Cream, True Food, a really good skinny margarita, and honestly any kind of shopping. I am the soon to be mommy of a new maltese puppy, Toby. I was first introduced to yoga by my sister obviously. I did not enjoy yoga at all the first few times Carly dragged my booty into different classes. I revisited yoga when Carly opened Thunderbolt and was instantly hooked. Yoga has helped me to overcome and power through anxiety, depression, and the chaos that life throws at you. I find peace, happiness, and self-acceptance in my practice. Carly urged me to go through teacher training at Thunderbolt my senior year of high school. Because of having trouble balancing both school and training I finished up the rest of my training in the spring of 2016. After countless moments of self doubt, I finally confidently began teaching and pushing myself to embrace the skill I had been taught. With the love and support of people in my life I was able to accomplish something I had desired to do for so long. I teach at Hot Yoga Plus in Oxford, Ms while I am at school and look forward to my moments back in Atlanta with my yogi family. You can catch me shaking my butt in downdog during any good rap song during class.

AVERY instructs the following:
Hip Hop-Heated Power Flow
You can expect an energetic Thunderbolt Power Flow choreographed to hip hop/rap/old-school Nelly kinda music. Get lost in the music, shake your booty, and "don't you worry about a thing."
Spirit-Heated Power Flow
Thunderbolt Spirit Flow is a spin on our traditional Thunderbolt Power Flow. The alignment principles will be key to the flow, more time will be spent in the rejuvenation portion of the class, and space to move with more intention will be created. Yoga philosophy is offered for application to life's daily challenges. This comprehensive class will feed your heart and soul with spiritual music and empowering words.
Advanced-Heated Power Flow
Advanced Heated Power Flow is a strong flow class that incorporates optional advanced variations into the sequencing. This class will move faster, assume a basic level of yoga knowledge, and rely on your ability to modify poses and take care of yourself. We will focus on one specified inversion/arm balance per class that will be demonstrated, demystified, and worked on. Options to float in and out of handstands and arm balances will be offered.
