Misa started practicing yoga regularly after college when a full-time desk job and a long car commute made her body cry for help. A few weeks after her first class, she bought an unlimited pass and began going everyday, studying mostly Bikram, Power yoga, and Jivamukti yoga. Misa completed her 200-hr teacher training at the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. She has also completed Yoga4Classrooms and ChildLight Kids Yoga teacher trainings. Misa is currently a Phoenix Rising practitioner-in-training and is working on her 954-hr training to become a yoga therapist certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She hopes to help yoga students find both strength in their softness and softness in their strength and to discover a practice that will connect them with their true Self.
Meredith began practicing yoga when a friend encouraged her to try it at a local gym in 1995. Hooked after the first class, she studied Ashtanga, Bikram and Power yoga in Colorado and went on to obtain a 200-hour certificate to teach in 1999. Her classically minded, multi-disciplined teaching methods are influenced by a wide variety of teachers and trainings, including certifications in Restorative and Prenatal Yoga. Meredith encourages students to uncover a viable, personal path toward holistic, sustainable self-care. She provides a clear, safe and nurturing space for students to connect and unlock the wellspring of yogic potential and power.
Mindy began practicing yoga in 2005 as a way to help calm her very active mind and assist with her insomnia. What began as a fairly active vinyasa practice has grown into a steady mindful practice filled with breathing exercises and proper alignment. Her first 200-hour training, taken in the Cayman Islands, allowed her to explore the meditative side of yoga. Shortly after, Mindy started teaching and took a second 200-hour training which focused on safe and creative sequencing. Mindy has taught youth at risk, kids, restorative, hot, yoga nidra, power and flow classes. She loves working with beginners and reminding students that it’s “just yoga” through playful asana practice.
Using yoga as a vehicle for deepening awareness supports us in living a more authentic and meaningful life.
Jennifer was first introduced to yoga as a 9 year old, returned to it in college, and then again 10 years ago. Yoga has been a great informant to her life and a compliment to her practice as a somatic psychotherapist. She is excited about the benefits of meditation and body-based practices and how they help us find our true nature. As a 200-hr Phoenix Rising Yoga Teacher, her focus is on integrating the yoga class experience with the student’s life experience. Jennifer enjoys facilitating “theme-based” and “embodied mindfulness” classes that serve to empower students to manage the natural stresses in life while also creating a life practice that you can return to again and again whenever wanted or needed.

Emma came to yoga hoping for a fix for a running injury and then found yoga to be a much better life fit and never went back to running. She loves how yoga brings out the “play” in adults and prefers a practice that doesn’t take itself too seriously. She completed her 200-hour RYT at Be Yoga in Union Square, Somerville MA in 2014. She teaches a fun, physical vinyasa flow with contemporary tunes. Emma lives in a ski-on/ski-off condo with her husband and rescue dog, because life is too short for lift lines.
