Meet Michelle! She joins the Kodawari teaching Krewe today! She has a love for yoga and whether it’s an event close to home, a class or a yoga retreat far away, Michelle feels inspired to create opportunities for others to re-connect with themselves and others. In her words, “These experiences (of reconnection) are moments that change us and stay in or hearts forever. I hope to provide these opportunities to as many people as possible. Reach for the stars friends!”

Why I love to teach: Once you discover the power of yoga , you just want to share it with every one. It is such a beautiful thing to share personal experiences with others and see that they too, have been in the same boat. I love that in our busy lives, yoga class is the best part of the day for most people. To come to a place where we can all let go of the cares of the world for an hour together brings so much happiness and positive energy … I love being able to provide that space for others.

Why I have a passion for yoga: Like many people, I was curious about yoga because I wanted to be physically fit. I admit, I took a few classes and wasn’t in love…yet. Finally, I discovered hot yoga and was hooked. The pain from a serious back injury was finally gone and after many years of not feeling “myself” I began to feel on track in my personal life. Yoga began to teach me that once you work on yourself on the inside, everything on the outside falls into place.

On the Goddess Network, Local Events & International Retreats : Many people ask how/why am I inspired to give back to the world in this way. Looking back on my life, each time I went through a heart break or rough time, taking a trip helped me to find myself again. I would come home with a fresh outlook on life and a new level of self-love. To me, travel is the ultimate form of yoga because it is all about living in the present moment: savoring every taste, sight and sound. Visiting a new place gives us a fresh outlook on how other people live, bringing cultural understanding which our world needs so much more of. It has been a dream come true to intertwine my love for yoga + travel over the past three years leading International Retreats to the Caribbean, Thailand and Dubai. Watching travelers come home with a fresh perspective on life is just magical beyond words.

It’s certainly true that you don’t have to fly to the other side of the globe to experience a major shift in your life. I remember sitting on my porch a few years ago, mimosa in hand, scrolling through FaceBook and witnessed so many amazing women promoting their businesses and incredible projects online. I sensed a little bit of competition and thought to myself, “If only these ladies knew each other! Big things could happen.” I knew we all needed to get off our phones and get in person to share our dreams and passions. This is how the Goddess Network was born. We host yoga & mimosa events at high end venues in Tampa. Complete with brunch, DJs, henna artists and entertainment – these events have not only created a one-of-a-kind party experience for ladies but have been the source of lots of new businesses forming, new friendships made and happy memories to be shared in our community. I also love hosting events where men can come too! It’s great to spend a few hours on a weekend letting loose in a party atmosphere while connecting with like-minded positive people.

If you are interested in practicing with Michelle she’s teaching Hot and Heated Power on Tuesday and Fridays! Make it to the mat for a connection that you won’t forget!



My name is Chelsey Quiñones, I am a twenty-seven-year-old from the sunshine state of FL. I recently moved back from Colorado Springs, Colorado where I was, among other things, a yoga instructor at CorePower Yoga. Since three years old, dancing has always been in my blood. And at 19, things came to a slight halt after having a stroke.


When you think about floating – do you think about floating in water or air? Well, if you want crazy health benefits you will want to think about floating in super salty water! And after you read this blog you’ll want to stop thinking about it and just do it! Because besides being peaceful and a great way to unplug for a bit of time did you know that regular sessions in the float tank could help combat magnesium deficiencies? Here’s the kicker…since magnesium deficiency may play a part in hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and migraine headaches, just to name a few why wouldn’t you want to combat that!?

An article published on the alternative medicine website, The Chamomile, posits that “According to Dr. Norman Shealy, a world-renowned neuroscientist and founder of the Shealy Institute, every known ailment is associated with a magnesium deficiency.


Richard, one of our most recent additions to the Kodawari community, has been teaching yoga since 2000. He started studying yoga in 1998 when he was doing a lot of business travel. He wanted to be able to do something healthy for himself even if the hotel had no fitness facility. Yoga was the perfect fit as it was something he could do in a hotel room or even in airport.

He completed his first 200 RYT in 2003, from Balance Point Yoga in Tampa. While initially his intention was to simply learn enough to deepen his practice and to be able to practice on his own, he continued on in 2011 to do an Anusara Teacher training at Garden of the Heart. 

The result is a great teacher teaching a happy mixture of styles; Anusara, Iyengar, and Ashtanga.  His style tends to be energetic and strong though one of his gifts is to teach and modify to whomever is in front of him so that the yoga is accessible to everyone!

He’s got a great sense of humor and he lends a healthy sense of play to his class you will find that his class will vary, some will have arm balances and inversions while others will be a bit more relaxed…

Richard’s primary influences are Tony Nenov (Ashtanga), Jaye Martin, Betsy Dowling & Desiree Rumbaugh (Anusara) and Karen Stephan (Iyengar).

Richard can found teaching at Kodawari throughout the week! He offers a Power Flow on Tuesdays 12-1pm, a Vinyasa Flow 1/2 on Wednesday at 5 to 6pm and Saturday mornings at 8:45 to 9:45am. In addition Richard has volunteered teaching yoga at the Hillsborough county jails and taught for 5 year at a local residential rehab facility. Join him on the mat and lighten up your life.

Today is Valentine’s Day and while Hallmark is busy making beaucoup bucks on cards that point to some of the “mushier” (more transient) sentiments that are known to come along with romantic love a large portion of humanity is trying to find the courage to stay loving. As a practicing yogi I’m aware that the philosophy of yoga points to the starting and ending point of awareness (mine and all other sentient beings) as being one of love and yet, in practice I bump into a bunch of other emotions along the way that are less fuzzy and fun.

And yet, when I can do the consistent, sweet work of keeping an open heart I am often rewarded with less agitation and more connection AND I find that making the connection is easier and has more depth and meaning. But how? How do you do this “sweet” work? Yoga is one of the richest tools for this as the physical practice provides an immediate point of access to feeling our way into and through the impediments to living in love. No surprise when I say bring on the backbends!


Did you know that we are about to kick off a meditation class this Saturday @ 8:15-8:45am (Sept 29, 2019)? Well, you do now! You may be, before you decide whether to join in me (Annette) in sitting still, wondering what all this hubbub about sitting still, mindfulness and meditation is about and why you would want to do it. It’s true, meditation is becoming more and more recognized (and actually practiced) but it still has a way to go before it truly becomes “mainstream”. However, let me assure you that it is going to eventually get there because just as we have come to understand that a regular movement practice (exercise) is “good” for you, we are also coming to understand that meditation and mindfulness practices bring us a huge range of benefits, many of them similar to exercise. (more…)

So I totally lifted this blog from Bulletproof’s newsletter…and there is no shame in this game – why recreate the wheel? But here’s what is work saying…if something as “mainstream” and as well funded as Bulletproof is talking to us about how to hack your way into your best self through floating, then we might want to pay attention. I love my bulletproof tea – I make it each and every morning like some sort of zen ritual…which I believe it is…and if only I could float every morning…but that’s where this blog comes in…Float, when you can! As often as you can…if you are already convinced click here to schedule your float at Kodawari today!

Want to float your way to less stress, anxiety, depression, and pain? Though it sounds too good to be true, science says it’s possible.

While floating in a sensory-deprivation tank may sound terrifying, it’s meant to have the opposite effect. Magnesium-saturated water (aka epsom salt), kept at a temperature that matches your skin’s, keeps you effortlessly buoyant so you don’t have to worry about staying afloat. With little to touch, taste, smell, hear, or feel, you’re wrapped in a cocoon of warmth and silence, with only your thoughts keep you company. Herein lies the magic of floating – it puts you in a meditative state to better heal what ails you.

Origins of floating

Floating in salt water for therapeutic reasons is not new. People have made pilgrimages to the Dead Sea for centuries. However, over the past 15 years, there’s been a renewed interest in the practice, with chic flotation studios, offering 60-90-minute float sessions, cropping up all over metropolitan areas.[1]

In the late ’50s, neuroscientist and psychoanalyst John C. Lilly, MD studied the effects of sensory deprivation flotation on anxiety disorders, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Due to the impressive benefits he saw for people with these conditions, he decided to team up with two business partners — Glenn and Lee Perry — to develop a commercial float tank that anyone could use.

In the ‘70s, concerns over water cleanliness halted the industry’s growth. Nonetheless, the scientific study of floating — namely the effects of isolation on the brain — continued within the academic community.

About 15 years ago, a UK-based company called ISOPOD enlisted a team of engineers to resolve concerns over water cleanliness. With the latest water-filtration technology, they built a system to remove particles 15 times smaller than a commercial filtration unit. As a result, small studios popped up in England, Vancouver, Toronto, Portland, and Seattle; then in larger hubs like NYC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Now, you can float in nearly any major metropolitan area at a studio like the one featured in this video above, Pause Float Studio in Venice, California.

So why would you do it? Read on for the science-backed benefits of floating.

5 major health benefits of floating

Floating decreases anxiety and depression and improves sleep

Under stress, your hypothalamus (the almond-sized part of your brain just above your brainstem) signals your adrenal glands to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Chronic stress leads to an overactive hypothalamus, which can lead to depression.[2] Floating helps combat depression and anxiety by minimizing your cortisol production.[3]

In one study[4], people who floated for 12 sessions noticed decreased pain, stress, anxiety, and depression as well as improved sleep quality and general optimism. The results lasted up to four months post-flotation.

In a single-subject study[5], a 24-year-old diagnosed with autism, PTSD, anxiety, and depression participated in regular float sessions for one and a half years. She experienced beneficial therapeutic effects including improved quality of life, subjective sense of wellbeing, and healthier behaviors. The study quotes her stating: “I feel good, well, like a new person, and so it has made a great difference… It really has and I really want to continue with this because I really need it.”

Floating lowers stress

Floating combats stress in two main ways. First, the water’s magnesium inhibits ACTH, a hormone that drives your adrenal glands to release the stress hormone cortisol.[6] Magnesium also improves sleep quality, which contributes to feeling less stressed.[7]

The sensory deprivation component of floating also minimizes stress. In a recent study, people who floated eight times in two weeks saw their cortisol decrease by 21.6 percent. They also showed a 50.5 percent decrease in cortisol variability, meaning, they handled stressful situations better without the cortisol spikes.[8]

A meta-analysis of 27 studies revealed that floating also has relaxation, mood, and performance-enhancing effects, particularly in cases of burnout or chronic fatigue.[9]

Floating relieves physical pain

For people with chronic, stress-related muscle pain and burnout-related depression, floating served as an integral part of pain treatment plans, in one study.[10] Since floating oxygenates your body by promoting vasodilation — better blood flow to the brain, organs, and limbs — it serves to minimize muscular pain and even pain from degenerative disc disease or herniated disks.

Specifically floating provides significant reductions in pain, muscle tension, stress, anxiety, and sadness for those who suffer from fibromyalgia. Floating also increases feelings of relaxation, well-being, energy, and ease of movement in the same group of people.[11]

Floating enhances athletic performance

Floating helps you bounce back faster from workouts by reducing lactic acid in the blood. By floating fee of gravity, lactic acid passes out of the muscles faster, which reduces overall muscle stiffness and pain.[12] Floating benefits extend to athletes on the field as well. One study on basketball players found strong evidence of athletic skill improvement post floating. These results may be due to a lower arousal state post floating, which enabled the players to maintain better focus while shooting foul shots.[13]

Floating benefits creativity

Musicians, writers, and creative performers also gain from floating. A study in the journal Music and Medicine found that floating improved the technical ability of musicians during jazz improvisation.[14]

What to expect with your first float

A typical float session lasts 60 to 90 minutes. You may experience restlessness in the tank on your first float, until your body and mind settle into the sensory deprivation. Some float studios have water-based speakers with guided meditations to help you ease into your session.

What’s Trap Yoga?

July 3, 2018

Greetings fellow Yogi! If you’ve gotten this far – you’re probably itching to know – just what is Trap Yoga? Well we can tell you this much, you’re in the right place. We’re going to break down what makes Trap Yoga – Trap Yoga, nahmean.

In a nutshell, Trap Yoga is a vinyasa style class that’s uptempo and guided by the drums, kicks and snares of trap music. The class is taught by Meeyogi founder, Mya Cato, a certified yoga instructor who developed the Meeyogi Trap Yoga flow.

To give more background on the vinyasa style, the word vinyasa translates to “arranging something in a special way”. Per OneFlow Yoga, this [means] that we are not “throwing our bodies around” but are bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment. The Trap Yoga vinyasa style was developed to strengthen and stretch the lower back, thighs, glutes, calves, chest and core. We instruct yogis to focus on their breath and smoothness of their transitions as it feels comfortable to them.

However, to really understand Trap Yoga you have to start with your mindset. Trap Yoga is all about empowerment and building your core strength to boost your mood, energy and wellness. Before class and during class, we want Trap Yogis to tap into their innerG, affirm their greatness and come ready to have a good time. The energy you bring to the class and give to your fellow yogis is what keeps the class vibin’.


Trap Yoga is open to any fitness level and those over 18 years old. Our class is upbeat and conducted at a steady pace, so be prepared to sweat! Yoga, in general, is all about understanding and pushing your personal limits to grow stronger. So while the class may be a bit fast-paced we encourage you to do what feels comfortable.

The Trap Yoga playlist includes some current trap & hip hop hits along with classics we all love to shake to. And as mentioned before, our vinyasa flow is designed to follow the beat. We’ll ride waves, get low, release #innerG and twerk a little!

Trap Yoga is being offered this coming Friday, July 6th at Kodawari Studio. Register now @

Few things are more fascinatingly complex to me (and many other curious humans – some of which are called scientists) than the human brain. It possesses an extraordinary capacity to learn, adapt and grow in ways that cannot be duplicated – not even by the most complex computer. My interest (it’s Annette talking here) in how our brains work and its potential as an evolutionary tool is why I got into floating in the first place.

On a personal note, if I had a “second chance” at life I would have taken the trajectory in my schooling to become a psychoneuroimmunologist…but for now, I remain a lay person with a keen interest in wanting to be an effective bio-hacker…which leads me back to the conversation about floating. The combination of my research into and my personal experiences with floating led me to believe that it is one of the best tools available to humanity for crafting a vibrant, healthy, peace-oriented human being (I believe that our species does have this potential) which is how and why Kodawari Studios ended up with a float tank.

If we could spend an hour observing a human brain during a floating session in an isolation tank or as they are called now, Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) tanks, we would witness firsthand just how much that brain is capable of changing and adapting to its environment.

With the explosion of popular interest in floating, scientific researchers in such fields as biochemistry, electromagnetism, brain waves, sleep, behavioral change, self-regulation and healing have intensified their efforts at understanding what actually happens when you float.

One of the most productive areas of research has been in coming to understand how floating affects brainwave patterns, which in turn correlates to affects on mood and cognitive function. By now, thanks to the thousand science fiction movies and television hospital series we have all become familiar with the electroencephalograph (or EEG), which monitors these signals…this is where you watch a medical technician place electrodes against the patient’s scalp with the accompanying cut (in the case of a healthy patient) to the sensitive mechanical pen tracing across a long sheet of paper giving a mountain range of jagged lines or, in the unlucky case of the soon-to-die patient, you get the flat line which equals brain death – you can cart him away, nurse.

We are, however, way less familiar with the 4 patterns that all humans seem to share…and how and why we for our health and longevity, emotional equanimity and evolution should work to practice moving into some more so than others.

So here’s a brief breakdown of the 4 types of brainwaves of which we are all capable:

Beta: When the brain is generating mostly beta waves, whose frequency is about 13-30 Hz (that is, a rhythm of 13 to 30 cycles per second), it is in what is called its waking rhythm: The brain is focusing on the world outside itself, or dealing with concrete, specific problems. This is the critical, analytical mind.

Alpha: As the brain waves slow down they take on a more coherent rhythm, and can be seen on the EEG as a regular sawtooth pattern at about 8 – 12 Hz. These waves are often present when the brain is alert but unfocused, and most people generate alpha waves when their eyes are closed, even if only bursts of one or two seconds. Frequently, alpha waves are associated with feelings of relaxation and calmness. This is the curious, open mind.

Theta: As calmness and relaxation deepen into drowsiness, the brain shifts to slower, more powerfully rhythmic waves with a frequency of about 4 -7 Hz. Everyone generates these theta waves at least twice per day: in those fleeting instants when we drift from conscious drowsiness into sleep, and again when we rise from sleep to consciousness as we awaken. The theta state is accompanied by unexpected, unpredictable, dreamlike but very vivid mental images (known as the hypnagogic images). Often these startlingly real images are accompanied by intense memories, particularly childhood memories. Theta offers access to unconscious material, reverie, free association, sudden insight and creative inspiration. For most of us, most of the time, it is a mysterious, elusive state, potentially highly productive and enlightening, but experimenters have had a difficult time studying it, and for an untrained mind (this is where things start to get exciting), it is hard to maintain, since people tend to fall asleep as soon as soon as they begin generating large amounts of theta.

Delta: Cycling at an extremely slow frequency (.5-4 Hz), delta rhythms are produced when people are deeply asleep or otherwise unconscious. Throughout the 1960s, experimenters discovered that with the use of equipment that electrically monitored selected physical functions, humans could learn to generate those functions at will. While biofeedback equipment could be made to monitor just about any physical function, researchers often focused on the production of alpha waves. Stress was a problem shared by almost everyone, and an accepted antidote to stress was relaxation; since alpha waves accompanied relaxation, and were relatively easy to learn to produce at will, clinical biofeedback experts assumed that if you learn to generate alpha waves, you would automatically become relaxed. In the early 1970s, with the advent of relatively inexpensive equipment came an explosion of interest in biofeedback, and alpha became the catchword seized on by the mass media and seekers of expanded consciousness.

Almost unnoticed amidst the hoopla surrounding alpha was an earlier study by Akira Kasamatsu and Tomio Hirai which analyzed EEG tests of Zen monks going into deep meditative states. The study showed that as the monks went into meditation they passed through four stages: the appearance of alpha waves, an increase of alpha amplitude, a decrease of alpha frequency, and finally (for those with the most skill at meditation), the production of long trains of theta waves. Interestingly, the four states “were parallel with the disciples’ years spent in Zen training.” In other words, the more meditative experience a monk had, the more theta he generated 9 i.e., those monks who had more than twenty years of experience generated the greatest amounts of theta waves). And, even in the depths of theta, the monks were not asleep but mentally alert.

Elmer and Alyce Green, biofeedback researchers at the Menninger Clinic, became interested in the theta state (they’d been studying the brain waves of swami Rama when he told them: “Alpha is nothing!”) and began training subjects to generate theta waves consciously. They found theta “to be associated with a deeply internalized state and with a quieting of the body, emotions, and thoughts, thus allowing usually ‘unheard or unseen things’ to come to consciousness in the form of hypnagogic imagery.” As their theta training groups progressed, they were surprised to find a “high frequency of subjects report integrative experiences leading to feelings of psychological well-being.” Many of the subjects began reporting spontaneous improvements in personal relationships. Many vivid memories of long-forgotten childhood events arose: “They were not like going through a memory in one’s mind but rather like an experience, a reliving.” Subjects reported both physical and psychological wellbeing, and Greens discovered that people with the most hypnagogic imagery were “psychologically healthier, had more social poise, were less rigid and conforming, and were more self-accepting and creative” than those who produce little or no hypnagogic imagery.

The Greens were surprised by their findings, and concluded that the theta state caused people to “experience a new kind of body consciousness very much related to their total well-being.” Physiologically, the theta state seemed to bring “physical healing, physical regeneration.” In the emotional domain, the theta state was “manifested in improved relationships with other people as well as greater tolerance, understanding, and love of oneself and of one’s world.” In the mental domain, theta ability involves “new and valid ideas or syntheses of ideas, not primarily by deduction, but springing by intuition from unconscious sources.”

Understandably excited by the extraordinarily beneficial powers of the ability to generate theta waves, the Greens undertook a research project they called Brain-wave Training for Mental Health, to train psychotherapists to assist their clients in learning the technique. The problem is that it is not easy to learn to produce theta waves; first of all, theta usually leads to sleep. And as the Greens point out, “In order to produce theta consciously it is necessary to have a quiet body, tranquil emotions, and quiet thoughts all at the same time.” Some cynics might retort that if one had a quiet body, tranquil emotions, and quiet thoughts, one would have no need for any training. The fact is, few people know how to achieve this happy simultaneity, and few have the necessary discipline and patience to learn. After all, it seems to take Zen monks some twenty years to be able to generate this state at will.

But as anyone who has floated is aware, the quiet body, the tranquil emotions, and quiet thoughts formula is a perfect description of the floater’s circumstances. Could it be that floating increases and facilitates the production of theta waves? Research indicates that this is indeed so!

As early as 1956, John Lilly was noting that the state of mind in the float tank was “hypnagogic,” full of ” reveries and fantasies,” with much visual imagery and many childhood memories, and mental events that were “surprising to the ego”- all characteristics of theta activity. J.P. Zubek, investigating “EEG changes in perceptual and sensory deprivation,” reported that theta waves became prominent. A recent study by Gary S. Stern, associate professor of psychology at the University of Colorado at Denver, found that” the significant effect of floating…indicates that individuals who had floated in the isolation tank for one hour significantly raised their theta level.”

A large controlled study by Professor Thomas E. Taylor, of Texas A & M, analyzed the effects of floating on several types of learning abilities, comparing floaters with people in a relaxed state in a dark, quiet room. Both the float and non-float groups measured with EEGs, and the study found that floating leads to an increase in the generation of theta waves.

Biofeedback expert Thomas Budzynski, clinical director of the Biofeedback Institute of Denver and professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado Medical Center, is currently doing research involving the measurement by EEG of the brain during hypnosis. He has concluded that float tanks increase the production of theta waves, and believes that this has great potential for opening the mind to learning: “We take advantage of the fact that the hypnagogic state, the twilight state, between waking and sleep, has these properties of uncritical acceptance of verbal material, or almost any material it can process. What if you could cause a person to sustain that state, and not fall asleep? I believe floatation tanks are an ideal medium for doing that.”


Budzynski’s observation that the tank is ideal for maintaining wakefulness while in the theta is supported by almost everyone who has done work in the area of sensory deprivation. Jay Shurley and John Lilly were probably the first to point out that the tank facilitates wakefulness in most users. Others (A.M. Rossi and colleagues, for instance) have since indicated various reasons for this, such as the body’s natural homeostatic mechanism to maintain alertness, the “sensoristat,” which creates a unique combination of high brain arousal and low muscular arousal. It’s important to emphasize this point: Usually when you enter the theta state you fall asleep, but the tank causes the floater to generate large amounts of theta, yet remain awake. This means that the vivid hypnagogic imagery, the creative ideas, the eureka moments and lightbulb thoughts, the “knowing” feeling, the “integrative experiences” mentioned by Elmer and Alyce Green, with all the resultant beneficial effects on body, emotions, and mind, are available to the floater; in the tank these experiences come while the floater remains awake, so they remain a part of the floater’s conscious mind even after he has emerged.

Arthur, the psychologist who had a “religious revelation” while floating said, “the reason I’ve become very enthusiastic about it is that the feelings I had in the float tank expressed themselves in terms of ideas which stayed with me.” When he tried to explain this extraordinary experience, Arthur said, “I went into such deep relaxation that I felt a special form of communication with myself. I was communicating with thoughts and feelings I normally disregard.” And finally he pointed out that the floats had a permanent impact on him: He is able to recapture the experiences at any time he wishes, because they were so “strong” and “vivid.

Clearly, the potential for the average cat among us to move into the theta brain is high when you decide to take the shallow plunge into floating…you can book your session now by clicking here. Join me on the journey to our potential.



It’s fast, effective, numerous health benefits – what’s not to love about dry body brushing in the morning? A daily routine is absolutely necessary to bring radical change in body, mind, and consciousness. Routine helps to establish balance in one’s personal constitution. It also regularizes a person’s biological clock, aids digestion, absorption and assimilation, and generates self-esteem, discipline, peace, happiness, and longevity.

And yet, you still may be thinking, Why do I need to add something else to my already busy morning routine? Let me assure you, the extra five minutes this takes is well worth the investment.
