Mindi Birkenholz: July 2021 Member of the Month
This July, we honor Mindi. A loyal and inspirational member who has been with us through so much! There isn't a class she hasn't tried. Mindi is strong, determined, and absolutely ageless. We're convinced she's gotten younger since joining our studio. Learn more about her journey with us below!
"A friend of mine told me about Evolution Yoga. I was loyal to another studio at the time, so it took me a while before I signed up for a class. I purchased an Intro Offer and tried a variety of different options including Vinyasa, Hot Pilates, KriYin, TRX, and Hot Power Flow… The rest is history! I didn't think twice. I bought an Annual Membership and 3 years later, I'm taking most all the classes mentioned, and with a lot of the same instructors!
The classes are challenging and keep me motivated. After having COVID-19, being immobile for 2 months, and developing a number of injuries, Jeannie and April Pulli have helped me work on my strength training and endurance. I made modifications to my workouts and I'm grateful to say, "I'm Back!" Thank you, Jeannie and April, for pushing me and not letting me quit. Some of my favorites are Jeannie's Bootcamp, April's Hot Pilates & Chair, Melanie's Yin, Vikky's & Barbara's Hot Raja, and Maxine's Hot Power Flow. I also love April Clendenin's Barre class. I’m looking forward to retiring so I have more time to take them all weekly!
The culture of Evolution Yoga is unique to the fact that it offers a diversified menu that can appeal to everyone, from beginners to advanced. The variety of people and personalities make it very pleasurable and easy to mingle and make friends. The staff are the friendliest. Each and every time I walk through the doors, I am greeted and checked in. The Evolution Family is where I belong! Thank you, Maxine, for surviving the last year and a half and making this all possible for us."
