Katie Guyer

I started taking yoga classes as another form of exercise and quickly decided it was something I wanted to teach alongside my spin classes. For those of us who step onto the yoga mat, we soon realize it is so much more than just another workout. Being " in shape" and healthy is a state most of us strive to attain and yoga can certainly help us to get there but it is the journey within the postures, breathing and practice of yoga that sets this path apart. Opening your heart, mind and body to what a yoga practice can offer is a gift and one I would love to share with you.

Kate Fazio

As a former artist, Kate was drawn to yoga by her natural tendency to explore the meaning and beauty in daily life. Her personal practice and teaching style are informed by her training in vinyasa flow and restorative yoga, as well as her past experience in weightlifting, running, and dance. She has a special interest in creative transitions and precise movement to build strength and control in a balanced and beautiful flow. Kate is a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200 hour level as well as a Certified Herbalist, offering a holistic approach to personal fitness and wellness.

Jennifer Freeman

Jennifer is the owner of Pause Yoga. She feels strongly that yoga should be accessible to all people. This feeling is manifested in her lessons as she encourages modification of postures to each individual’s ability. She guides her students to open their bodies as well as their minds and hearts, while encouraging healthy alignment and flowing breath. Her classes always feature lots of stretching & strength while keeping the energy light. Jennifer teaches a blend of Hatha yoga inspired by Vinyasa flow, Anusara, Gentle and Senior training. Her joyful spirit, kind heart & love for teaching will inspire your practice. She trained at Peachtree Yoga Center in Sandy Springs, GA, as well as certification in Gentle Senior Yoga from Yoga Vista Academy. Jennifer is a certified and Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level.

Richard Hudak

Seeking relief from stress induced by career change, Richard stumbled upon yoga in 2005. In 2009 he began an extensive exploration of the positive philosophy and generalized alignment principles of Anusara Yoga. In April 2013 he completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training with former Certified Anusara Teacher Sara Davidson Flanders (ERYT- 500). He also has studied extensively with former Certified Anusara Teacher Marc St. Pierre (ERYT-500) and has participated in asana webinars offered by Christina Sell, author of My Body is a Temple (2011), and Yoga from the Inside Out (2003). He has been teaching yoga since 2013. A period of inquiry induced by shoulder injury (and recovery) has sharpened his focus on alignment.

The thrill of discovery keeps driving Richard to his mat, and the delight of sharing, to teach yoga. Since 2005, his day job has been to teach sociology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and other area institutions.

Paula Wilson

Paula has studied yoga since the early 1990's and became serious about it and decided to become a yoga teacher in 2004 earning her 200 hour certification and registration with Yoga Alliance. After several injuries, she found that yoga was the one thing she could still practice that actually helped her gain strength and stability and kept her centered. She studied Ashtanga Yoga (vinyasa - flowing yoga) with Mary Hart at Iron Crow Yoga in Hamilton, MA. She has a strong infuence in Anusara Yoga, in which the primary focus is on proper body alignment. Paula is also certified in Story Time Yoga which is a unique children's yoga class that incorporates simple stories with specific morals that the children reenact through yoga poses. It's a great deal of fun for them and they're learning all the benefits of yoga at the same time.
This class welcomes all ability levels with a focus on stretching, building strength, & balance. Come and awaken the energy in your body to feel rejuvenated and healthy.
