  1. Kathryn Ward

    Vinyasa
    Kathryn Ward RYT-200, a high school English teacher for the last 20 years, began practicing yoga 15 or so years ago just to “give it a try” at the gym.  Like many before her, she realized after a while that the benefits were not just physical, but also mental; that it was challenging; that there was a lot to learn about it. And, she realized that she felt called to share these benefits, obvious and subtle, with others.  Her primary background is in Ashtanga yoga, and so, her classes are vinyasa based, an energetic practice of flowing movement where breath is linked to movement.

    Align and Flow
    Joelle Van Sickle began practicing Yoga in 1991 at the Iyengar Institute in NYC. After a professional career in dance, she received her 200 hour Yoga certification from the Kripalu Institute in 2000 and then her 500 hour/Yoga Therapy certification from Yoga Mountain in 2011. Joelle is eternally grateful for her early Iyengar studies for their precision of alignment and the use of props that make postures accessible to all. She is also grateful for Gail Walsh of Yoga Mountain for teaching her how to share Yoga with diverse populations such as special needs children and those with health challenges. Joelle’s classes focus on alignment, breath, and mindfulness, and meet students where they are on any given day. She is especially interested in helping people to achieve healthy movement patterns and to release the tension that inhibits them from finding freedom of both physical motion and thought. Joelle weaves in her knowledge of the energy body, especially the 7 Chakras, to help students more deeply understand the body/mind connection and to open up to their fullest potential. With a compassionate and friendly teaching style, Joelle strives to make these ancient teachings both accessible and relevant on and off the mat.

    It is an honor to be a part of the journey for all the individuals that I work with. Doing the work and making small changes produces big long lasting results. There are no short cuts. I enjoy motivating individuals to keep going, try new things, and to enjoy the process. Finding the balance and connection between the mind, body and spirit is priceless.
