As a mother of three, Elisabeth relies on yoga to bring her back to center daily! Years of classical dance training initially led her to yoga to balance and heal her body and she has been a student ever since. Teaching since 2009, Elisabeth received her 200hr training through Spirit Tree Yoga with Cathy Cesario at All That Matters. In 2013 she began the process of her 500hr training in Prana Flow Yoga with Coral Brown & Debbie Valois. She also holds a level one certificate in Restorative Yoga
with Sudha Carolyn Lundeen.
Elisabeth’s classes are grounded and nurturing, encouraging students to open space in their body, mind, breath and connect to their heart.
Erin’s yoga journey began with her first class in 2008. She was intrigued by the way her body felt, the emotional release she experienced, and the connection with others. She began regularly practicing Bikram, then Power Yoga, and then explored Heated Vinyasa, Acro, Ariel, which eventually lead to breath work and Somatic Movement - all of which supported experiences and challenges faced during different stages of her life. Yoga provided Erin the opportunity to reconnect with herself, restore balance, and quiet her mind, uninterrupted by life's demands. She completed her 200-hour Teacher Training through Barre & Soul in Boston in 2015 and went on to compete a 300-hour advanced studies training in traditional Hatha Yogawith Theresa Murphy in Rhode Island in 2018.
Erin’s classes are a blend of Vinyasa and Iyengar styles that reflect her diverse training and her own practice. She creates an atmosphere that allows students to practice safely and discover their own strengths, desires, and aspirations. Her fun and invigorating classes incorporate themes of inspiration, self-love, and life lessons; through these themes she encourages students to transfer the breath, patience, and confidence gained on their mats into everyday life.
Erin is an empathetic woman, mother, licensed mental health clinician, and dog lover who works hard, loves deeply, and finds good and strength in everyone and any situation. As a behavioral health professional, Erin has experience working with individuals faced with anxiety, depression, addiction, physical and emotional trauma, and grief and loss. Therapy similar to yoga is an investment in self - it is a commitment of time offering learning, empowerment, and skill acquisition. The space may at times feel uncomfortable or challenging, but the opposing feelings represent hard work and personal growth.
Erin offers several traditional and non-traditional modalities of healing and wellness. She assists clients and students to identify how emotional feelings and thought processes resonate in thephysical body. Therapeutic offerings include the use of Emotional Freedom techniques, muscle testing, and somatic yogic movement, due to the deep connection between the mind and body. Movement creates confidence and fosters action leading to lasting change.

Jackie started practicing yoga in 2002 she was amazed to find the calming impact that the practice had on her state of mind. As a nurse, Jackie was instantly interested in how the brain could be reprogrammed to not react impulsively, but in a calm, clear manner.

What originally began as a form of physical exercise to strengthen her body, stretch, and create flexibility, became a way of life for Jackie. Her teaching is a mirror for her practice. Encouraging students to come to yoga as a complement to running, hiking and biking, and to stay for the mental and emotional benefits.

She has been a registered nurse for over 22 years and is Reiki II certified through Marg Tudino at Earthway Studios.

Armanda‘s yoga classes are created with an authentic sense of ease & refinement integrating movement & asana from the gentle side of Hatha, Kundalini, & Vinyasa styles. My experience within the Healing Arts as a Yoga teacher, Massage Therapist, & Aromatherapist have brought her to a “less is more” philosophy emphasizing a body/mind/spirit awareness... Each class ends with Yoga’s most powerful & healing pose “ Savasana” which translates into relaxation. All that is needed to attend class is a yoga mat & an open heart...
