RYT200 has been a student of yoga for many years and just loves this incredible practice. Her passion for this practice really grew after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was fortunate enough to be able to take a breast cancer yoga class that was offered where she received treatment. Maureen truly believes that participating in this class allowed her to heal even quicker by training the brain to understand the mind and body connection. Maureen received her 200 hour training with Scott Feinberg at Kula Yoga Shala in 2011. She has been teaching since then in Adult Education programs with the Palm Beach County School District and also at a private retirement facility in Jupiter. Maureen teaches Gentle yoga, Basic yoga, and Chair yoga. Maureen believes anyone and everyone can participate in this practice regardless of size, shape, or limitations. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!

After moving to Florida, Dave became a certified SCUBA diver and found his way to yoga through a fellow SCUBA diver and part owner of a yoga studio. Breath and focus were the common links of these two activities, and yoga seemed to quickly become a new and important part of his life. And so began Dave's regular yoga practice for the next five years. After being encouraged to pursue the path of certified yoga instructor, he earned his comprehensive 200 hour certification in Kripalu yoga in 2007. The teacher training course unexpectedly awakened a spiritual side and a deepening awareness. Since then dave has taught at various venues in the West Palm Beach area, expanding his practice to incorporate vinyasa flow and power yoga in a fun, breath-centered adventure! A firm believer in the physical benefits of yoga, improving health, strength, posture, confidence and an overall well-being. Dave loves sharing yoga with all students, seeing them progress, and finding for themselves the joy it can bring. Namaste!
Angela allows the Energy of the Divine Source to flow through her as a spontaneous expression of rhythmic essence, guiding her fellow practitioners to learn and explore the journey of yoga. New depths of the connection of the body, mind, and Spirit, are enjoyed, opening up to the direct and personal experience of yoga. Combining her training in Sivananda yoga with her own style, her gentle flow-styled class intelligently blends proper alignment, healthy breath awareness, and the encouragement of a safe environment to celebrate life through a compassionate celebration of the body, just as it is at this moment. Angela’s goal is for her fellow practitioners to go beyond the compulsion for perfect body form and uncover the insight of our true Self, enabling ourselves to live consciously in touch with our hearts and in harmony with all existence.
