Nancy’s teaching emphasizes the inner movement of the body using Yoga positions as a framework. Her focus is on cultivating the relationship between the attentive mind, the breath, the spine, the body and the person as a whole. This inwardly focused approach allows us to “undo” tension, reclaim energy and facilitate a comfortable way of being. Nancy’s teaching embraces the artistry and essence of yoga. She has been teaching for 19 years and has been influenced by many teachers over the years.
When first meeting Laurel, you will immediately sense her warmth and love of the art of yoga. In India, Laurel studied Ashtanga yoga, Hatha yoga and Reiki. Originally from St. Johnsbury, Vermont, she graduated from Hampshire College in 2008 with extensive training in ballet, modern dance, anatomy, physiology, and gyrokinesis (a spiraling fitness techique based on yoga). Laurel states, “Yoga is my lifestyle… living honestly and with non-violence are the two most important parts of yoga that stay with me always, no matter what I’m doing.”
Misa took her first yoga class while still in high school, but didn’t fully realize the amazing benefits of yoga until she found a regular practice after college. She began studying PowerYoga, Bikram, and Jivamuki, but now enjoys yoga from many lineages, especially that of Swami Sivananda. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga and Vedanta Center on Paradise Island, where she studied asana, pranayama, Vedanta, and Ayurveda. She focuses on yoga practices that calm and strengthen both the body and mind to help students find relaxation and balance in their lives. All of her classes include pranayama and a long savasana.
