Eliza Atwater Eliza has always been a runner and participated competitively in sports.  Yoga was introduced to her in college as an additional element of training. The physicality of yoga and the spiritual connection of mind and body was the perfect complement to running and life.  Looking to learn more about the Vinyasa flow, the anatomy, and healing the inside and out led Eliza to complete her 200-hour teacher training with HYP Studios.  She continues to learn through many teachers and friends and trains privately with Jordan Lashley.

Amy Barber Amy found yoga in the early 90s while attending college in NYC. Different types of yoga helped Amy find balance in life and made her stronger both on the inside and out. She received her 200hr training from Mimi Louriero of 02 Yoga and her 500hr from Rolf Gates and for the past two years has studied under Master Teacher Natasha Rizopoulos.

Margaux Holley Margaux’s path to yoga was much like that of many others: she was very skeptical of yoga after her first class; she became more interested but resisted developing a regular practice; at some point between then and now she became totally addicted to it, and now cannot imagine life without yoga. Margaux teaches a dynamic vinyasa-style class to a carefully-curated upbeat playlist. She encourages her students to personalize their practice, and offers plenty of modifications and variations for inspiration.

Heather Keyes Heather first came to yoga tired, stressed, and feeling disconnected from her body.  Yoga created a space of quiet and freedom in body and mind that propelled her on a life-changing path to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. Heather draws from her knowledge as a massage therapist to guide students through an intelligent flow with attention to anatomical alignment. Recognizing the importance of the mind-body connection, Heather's classes create a space that enables students to be firmly grounded in the present moment on and off the mat. Heather was certified through the Boston Yoga School and completed The Power of Touch mentorship with Nicole Clark.
