    Liz Skarvelis, Founder/Owner, E-RYT500, YACEP

    When I stepped onto a yoga mat almost two decades ago, my life was forever changed; for the first time in a long time, I felt at home.  Now, my heart-felt intention is for all beings to feel at home in their body, on this earth, and in this life.  I teach from a relevant and practical foundation while weaving in wisdom teachings that have been handed down to me from my teachers (primarily of Bhakti tradition). I believe in collective consciousness and also our universal heart and connect to both to teach and guide. 

    Greg Skarvelis, Founder/Owner, RYT200

    I found the joy of yoga and realized I wanted to share the benefits and experience of yoga with others. As an avid motorcyclist and outdoorsman, I have found practical application of yoga to my life.

    Bridget Howe, Studio Manager, RYT200

    My journey with Yoga started in 2011, when I was in a place of deep disconnection with my body. Developing a practice has led me to finding acceptance (over and over) with my body, self, and difficult experiences over the years. I teach with the mindset that Yoga isn't about "looking" like a Yogi, but LIVING like one. I am to provide students with a safe place to move and grow with compassion, acceptance, & non-judgement. Mental health is one of my passions and I believe yoga aids in developing a healthy mind, body, and soul.

    Brooke Coletta, E-RYT500, YACEP

    I love Yoga because it makes me feel whole. I love that the practice is more than physical, yet it is physically challenging every time you step onto the mat. I strive to teach every student how to experience each posture in a safe, sustainable and intentional way. As a serious student of philosophy and teacher of all of the limbs of Yoga, it is my responsibility to share the ancient but very alive teachings in an authentic and compassionate way.

    Stephanie Salafia, RYT200

    I began my yoga journey in 2013 when I needed something that allowed me to drop in and let go. I had no idea the amount of places in my body that needed to be “un stuck” and immediately felt connected with the practice and loved how it made me feel from the inside out. My intention is to share this practice and hope it gives my students the strength and peace it gives my every time I step on my mat.

    Kayla Wright, RYT500

    Yoga found me roughly five years ago during a time of much needed help to move through anxiety, depression and fear. With regular practice, I noticed a lessening of tension, more clarity of mind and a deeper connection to my body. This discovery sparked a never-ending curiosity to explore the ancient teachings further. I teach from a desire to offer anyone who steps onto the mat a safe space to go into the body, into the mind and find their own unique, beautiful connection to Self. Yoga has so much to offer - let the journey begin!

    Larissa Darcy, RYT200

    I fell in love with yoga because it is a constant opportunity to grow and express myself. I'm a runner, hiker, yogi, and cyclist and love to find physical and mental challenges in all things. I have taught at various studios around the world, and assisted in opening a studio with my husband Kevin, where we focused on yoga, cycling classes, and general wellness. I love pushing the boundaries of my students, and helping each student realize their potential on and off of the mat.

    Heather Kulikowsky, E-RYT500, 800HR Certified Yoga Therapist

    I was burnt out, ravaged by debilitating pain and fatigue, struggling with the weight of an invisible illness, and yet yoga found me, picked me up, put me back together, and showed me how to share what I had found. My desire to know more led me to Kripalu’s School of Integrative Yoga Therapy (overseen by IAYT) where I learned why yoga works, where current research supports ancient practices, how to choose and apply specific techniques based on an individual’s strengths, needs, goals, and how to develop in others the capacity to know and support oneself. I infuse my love of nature, science, athletics, and spirit into playful, open hearted explorations, the goal always being to lovingly guide you home to yourself.

    Lexi Munson, RYT200

    My love affair with self-expression through body movement began at a young age. What began with gymnastics and dance, eventually metamorphosed into a regular yoga practice. After studying Vinyasa Flow and Yin with Mathieu Boldron in Sri Lanka, I began teaching a mix of the two, combining powerful, slow, and intentional movement to build strength and create space in the body. I hold a supportive space to allow students to drop deep into their bodies, free of judgment, in order to move with grace, fluidity, and confidence, both on and off the mat. I inspire students to ignite their inner fire, connect with the beauty of their raw truth, and live the life they have always dreamed of.

     

     

    Kyle Bonfert, RYT200

    I started my yoga journey in 2013, a good friend of mine started practicing at a local studio and said it would be fun and I should try. So I came, sat, breathed, chanted and was introduced to the handstand and I had to have more. I kept showing up and the things kept evolving and in 2015 I dove into my 200 YTT and have been teaching since. Being an athlete growing up and avid rock climber I have seen and felt a huge amount of benefit that comes with a steady yoga practice and hope to share this knowledge with others.
