Sarah was initially drawn to yoga as a way to complement my long distance running. What I didn’t know when I initially came to the mat, was that the moving meditation of the physical practice would quickly evolve into a true passion and spiritual journey for me. My personal practice has taught me how to begin to find peace in stillness. I am grateful to be able to reveal the endless benefits of yoga by leading all level Hatha and Vinyasa style classes. My goal is to share how the physical practice transfers off the mat into daily life. Yoga teaches us how to take on difficult roads with an increased sense of mental calmness and ease. I look forward to practicing with you!

Amy is a kind, compassionate teacher who creates a safe and sacred place for her yoga students. Her classes focus on breath awareness in order to develop intuitive confidence. As students develop their intuition they move more easily toward self-acceptance and contentment. Her classes focus on alignment in order to balance inner stillness with physical activity. She is a photographer, designer, teacher and a student of life, and continues her study of yoga at home and in the various studios on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
Amy is an ERYT-500, and has been teaching yoga for 15 years and practicing for close to two decades. During that time she discovered that it remarkably strengthened her experience of the mind-body connection. She decided to become a teacher in order to share this with others and to delve deeper into her own practice. She graduated from Open Doors 200 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training program in 2009 and has since then completed Nikki Myers’ Teacher Training in Yoga for 12 Step Recovery, and the Open Doors School of Energy Healing program. Amy graduated with 500 Hours led by Rolf Gates, Jacqui Bonwell and David Vendetti in 2014, as well as Sadie Nardini’s Core Strength Vinyasa Training.

I began practicing yoga over 20 years ago while serving in the Peace Corps and soon was running retreats for fellow volunteer yogis. I practiced yoga for several years before becoming certified, something I initially did solely with the intention of furthering my own practice, but soon thereafter followed an unexpected calling to teach. I believe in everyone listening to their own bodies and moving at their own pace to create the best practice for themselves. I am also a social worker and teach in a trauma informed manner, helping to create a safe space for all. I have most experience teaching beginners, mixed level classes, yin, restorative, power yoga and most recently Yin Yang. I look forward to meeting you on the mat!

My name is Bailey Miles, I came to New England in 2017 from South Dakota. Proud mom of a 12 year old!. I teach a variety of classes including power, gentle, vinyasa, Buti, face, and sculpt yoga flows.Through yoga I want to deepen and broaden the knowledge of who you are at the level of your innermost soul, and really learn to love the person that you are. My positive and optimistic personality will leave you in good spirits and able to see the big picture, so that you can spread inspiration around the world.
I was first introduced to yoga over 30 years ago, but have only in the past 5 years truly embraced the practice. Yoga and meditation have changed my life and I want nothing more than to share the benefits of yoga with as many people as possible. I don’t believe that yoga can change a person’s life. I know it can. In addition, yoga combined with meditation can assist with taking yoga off the mat and into our everyday life. Please join me for slow, gentle vinyasa, and meditation. Be the change.
