Certified RYT 200 hr. – Yoga Alliance Certified Aerosling Instructor
“Yoga connects us and separates us at the same time. It grants us the ability to discover where we find our supreme energy as individual and to express that energy in a way that feels best for us.”
I started yoga to find balance and strength in my life both mentally and physically. After teaching aerobics for a few years in college and outside of college I discovered yoga and fell in love with the practice. I have enjoyed practicing yoga in a variety of styles for 15 years . Lisa is a graduate of the Verge Power Yoga/Empowered Yoga teacher training program and has been teaching yoga for over 5 years. She has experience teaching beginner and advanced classes as well as corporate classes for GE and classes for athletes at the high school level. She has a passion for sharing her enthusiasm for the practice and the benefits it brings to all levels of fitness.
She enjoys spending time outdoors staying active, hiking, biking, playing tennis with her two sons Mason and Rhys.

YOGA INSTRUCTOR
 
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. –Alan Watts

Gretchen Myhre E-RYT, LMT, LET
Gretchen was introduced to yoga in 2001 to help relieve stress and physical pain.

She began teaching in 2003. As a licensed massage therapist she shares her knowledge and passion thru alignment and touch. She is a graduate of Yellow Springs Yoga 200hr, Om Yoga NYC 200hr, and Verge/ Empowered Yoga 200hr
teacher training programs. She has helped to facilitate several Yoga Teacher Training programs over the years specializing in anatomy and manual adjustments.

Yoga has presented its gifts of patience, stillness, awareness, and compassion. Being on my yoga mat allows me to dig deeper thru observation of my thought patterns,
reactions, and attitude. It has given me a deeper and more graceful way to handle the never ending cycle of changes and challenges that this life tosses our way.
The fusion of Yin yoga with Vinyasa flow creates an integrated, balanced 60-minute yoga practice. The Vinyasa portion is flowing movement requiring strength and balance. The heat and internal awareness generated burns off excess energy allowing for a quieting of the body and mind in order to drop more fully into the Yin portion. These longer held poses are designed to release connective tissues and create space and integrity in the joints; allowing energy to flow through the body.
