Yoga has changed me into a more positive, confident woman. Growing up, I was never the athletic type. I struggled with my weight and, in turn, my confidence. In 2001, I started working out - weight training, cardio, anything to get my heart rate up. I loved the rush I got but found that a lot of it was triggering pain in an old injury in my back. Then I stuck around the gym one day and took a yoga class. I loved how I felt after my first class. My muscles felt like they had worked but I did not feel sore in the way I had with previous exercises. I started to practice more and more, trying various teachers and styles. I was getting stronger and, at the same time, getting calmer. Yoga made me feel comfortable in my body in a way I had never felt. It changed my outlook on life in general and has allowed me to become a more optimistic person.
 

In 2008, I completed the YogaWorks 200 hour teacher training with Natasha Rizopolous and began teaching immediately. YogaWorks is based on a blend of Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga practices. I slowly started teaching more and more classes and moved away from my day job. I love seeing the changes in people, both adults and children, as they deepen their yoga practice. My classes tend to be a moderately paced, alignment- based vinyasa. Some classes are more gentle or vigorous than others. I have taught yoga in many different environments with students varying in skill level and ages, from toddler to senior citizens. Modifications are offered in all classes in order to be accessible to all students.

 

In addition to teaching yoga, I have a small art business making funky one-of-a-kind clocks. You can check them out at www.bsmalldesigns.com. I feel truly blessed to be able to combine my various passions to make a living. I love sharing the yoga practice with my students and hope to do so for years to come.

I received my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certification from South Boston Yoga, where I studied with David Vendetti and Todd Skolund.

I was initially inspired by the presence and body awareness that yoga teaches, but quickly realized that yoga is at its core, a means of personal transition and I become hooked.

Yoga has brought a sense of calm and peace to my body and mind, allowing me to gain a more positive outlook on life. I find continual inspiration in the joy and challenge of yoga and am so grateful to share the gift of yoga with everyone.

My flow offers a challenging yet grounding, fun practice; Teaching from the heart, encouraging students to let go of expectations and just see what happens.

While not on my mat, you’ll find me working as a nanny for the most wonderful children in the world and looking for new adventures with my husband, Mark.

In our fragmented world, there are so few spaces where we are invited and encouraged to show up as our whole selves: mind, body, and spirit. My yoga practice and the classes I teach create that precious space.
 

I studied classical and contemporary styles of dance in my youth and have always found joy and grounding in moving meditation. I have had a regular asana practice for over 10 years and have always noticed how good yoga made my body feel. But as I ventured down my spiritual path, I woke up to how my inner world changed through my practice. I am grateful for all the lessons from my mat, and how they inform my life off the mat as well.

 

In 2013 I completed the 200- hour Yoga Teacher Training at Inner Strength Studios, and now I get great joy out of sharing the message of yoga in the studio and also at my full time job as a Speech Language Pathologist in a hospital. Mindfulness, breath, and meditation are profoundly healing both for people recovering from injury and for the rest of us! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share my practice with the Black Crow Community. See you on the mat!

Vinyasa Flow yoga is a vigorous, athletic style of yoga. We focus on connecting breath to movement through a continuous sequence of postures. We stretch and strengthen our body, mind, and spirit!

We practice heated, not hot yoga. The studio is heated to approximately 85-90 degrees. It will feel comfortably warm, allowing you to safely stretch deeply, and you'll sweat from the athletic nature of the yoga. You'll leave feeling refreshed and renewed.

 

Each class is a unique experience. Our teachers have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Classes will vary to reflect the unique style and personality of each teacher. That's the beauty of flow yoga!

 

Classes are set to music and teachers prepare their own playlists to reflect their unique styles.

 

Class is appropriate for all levels of experience and beginners are always welcome. If you are new to yoga or have an injury or limitation, please let the teacher know so he/she can offer modifications and give you extra support.

 

Community classes are our same great classes and same great teachers, just at a bargain price. $10 cash only, please. Memberships also welcome.
