 I discovered yoga during my time as a college student. Throughout the years I have continued to practice and discovered that yoga has made me more mindful and has brought my awareness on how to slow down. I gained a better understanding as to how important it was to listen to your body, allowing your breath to guide you. Yoga was the missing link to my fitness routine. Suddenly everything made sense. My love for yoga and taking care of the body and mind began to grow. This led me to become a certified Holistic Health Coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City in 2012. Today I am passionate about sharing my love for yoga as well as the peace and balance it offers for the body and mind. I am inspired and dedicated to causing a ripple effect. Having one feel whole and complete at the end of class is my main goal. I completed my 200 RYT Hatha/ Vinyasa in August 2016 from The Om Yoga Center in Watertown CT. My classes have something for everyone, the chance to restore or challenge yourself with focus on breath and getting stronger through optimal alignment. I invite my students to take up space and find their own creative expression.

“I started off self taught, then my love for yoga expanded to complete my 200 hour yoga teacher training at Bramasole Yoga in Morris, CT. I enjoy teaching gentle flow and mixed levels vinyasa flow yoga. Yoga is something that has become so important to me and I’m lucky and grateful to be able to share it with others. Breath reconnects us to ourselves, to others and nature. Incorporating breath and movement with stillness and awareness. It is the full mind, body, spirit experience. A lover of crystals and reiki certified. I love incorporating different energetic tools in my yoga classes. Holding space for students to practice their asanas and nurture themselves on the mat. Drawing the balance between the effort and the ease.

Linda has completed the 200-hour teacher training course at The OM Center in

goal is to show how yoga can create positive change both mentally & physically. Her
classes include elements of alignment-based gentle flow with an emphasis on breathing
and mindfulness. She aims to share a comfortable approach to asana while
encouraging students to explore their own movement and breath. She would like to
teach the student that relaxation can be achieved in movement as well as the
strengthening of the body & mind.

inclusive space for all.

 Yoga has been apart of my life for over 5 years and my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully.

I completed my 200 hour Yoga training with CrossRoads Soul Space Yoga & Wellness with Yoga Alliance. I will always be a student of the practice and am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.My classes range from  beginners and gentle to more active classes. Using movement and breathe to help students find stillness and focus. Yoga has helped me to process, transform, and be more fully present to my everyday experience. If I can share even a small piece of that with my students, then I consider my self extremely lucky.

Kelly has her bachelor’s from the University of Connecticut in Human Development and Family Studies as well as a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Central Connecticut State University. Throughout her schooling Kelly has learned the importance of balancing the whole body: mind, body and spirit. Kelly works on incorporating this feeling of balance through a daily yoga practice, which helps her juggle being a mom of two busy little ones, a wife and full-time preschool teacher. Kelly looks to share her passion for yoga by helping clients connect their breathe to movement during her classes. The breathe/movement connection flows outside of the studio and can be utilized in client’s daily lives to decrease stress or assist in staying present. Kelly philosophy is: “get on your mat and move”, from there your body will let you know how far to push and when to rest. Each client’s practice is unique to themselves and that particular day. All levels are welcome in Kelly’s classes as modifications are provided for all poses. Kelly’s classes are vinyasa focused flowing from pose to pose while incorporating the whole body.
