Laura began practicing yoga in 2015 as a way to relieve stress and add a new form of physical activity to her routine. She was immediately hooked, and it was not long before she sensed that yoga was going to be a transformative power in her life. She has been truly amazed by the many benefits that yoga has provided including, a more positive self-image, self-compassion, confidence, physical and emotional strength, and an openness to embrace life. She felt a calling to share the gift of yoga with others and completed her 200-RYT training in 2018 at The Glowing Body in Knoxville, TN. She enjoys practicing and teaching Power Flow, Slow Flow, and Chair Yoga. Always seeking new ways to make yoga accessible to everyone, she completed the ‘Yoga For All’ certification training with Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes in 2019 and ‘Chair Yoga for Every Body’ with Karen O’Donnell Clarke in 2021. Laura's belief is that the physical and mental benefits of yoga are attainable for anyone regardless of physical ability. She works to meet students where they are and encourages self-acceptance and compassion.
Theresa is a certified yoga and mindfulness instructor. She has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and then received her certification through Yoga Farm Ithaca in 2020. She started teaching on her own with the goal in mind to create a comfortable, safe space for anyone to practice yoga and meditation. She has been teaching private classes in client’s homes, over zoom, and holds group classes in a local park. Theresa started doing yoga for the physical benefits of strength and balance that yoga provides all while being gentle on the body. Later in life when faced with the tough challenges that life can throw at you, she found meditation and yoga to be excellent tools. Theresa started teaching so that she can share how yoga and meditation can calm the storm of thoughts and emotions to create peace within you.
