This class is taught by:

Michelle O'Brien

After years of playing competitive sports, running marathons and competing in Triathlons, Michelle╩╝s body was quite literally braking down. She had numerous injuries and experienced pain everyday when by a fluke yoga came to her. For the first time in decades, she found a space to feel at home in her body and felt a reconnection to her heart and soul. Michelle completed her 200-hr teacher training through YogaWorks in CA and her Aerial Teacher Training through Fly Yoga. Her flow classes focus on the use of breath to find space and depth in postures. She emphasizes proper alignment and smart sequencing to eases her students into transformative spaces. By creating a safe and supportive environment, she encourages her students to explore, excavating and re-align with their perfect self - the person they truly are at their core. She is proud to be a member of Off the Mat Into the World, an organization of yogis that cultivates and fosters awareness and consciousness in ourselves, our community and around the world. Michelle is honored for the opportunity to share with her students the blessings and inspiration that yoga has awakened in her life.

Wiebke Wanner-Borchardt

Wiebke Wanner-Borchardt, RYT-200 Wiebke is a certified Kripalu Yoga teacher, a Reiki Master and a restorative yoga teacher (Level 1 training with Sudha Lundeen). Wiebke credits a regular yoga practice with greater body awareness, which she believes will lead to a healthier and happier life off the mat. Her teaching is guided by her desire to make yoga available to everybody and to support people on their path to wholistic wellness; wellness of the body and mind. Wiebke started her yoga practice with Bikram yoga and enjoys an energizing, vigorous vinyasa flow. In her classes, she mindfully weaves poses together, invites students to coordinate breath and movement, and always reminds her students to listen to their body, their teacher within. Independent of class level, she encourages students to adapt the pose to their unique body and not to adapt their body to the pose.

Nicole Metchick

Nicole is a certified yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance (RYTs), and she has also taught Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga for several years following a Yale-affiliated Dancing Thru Pregnancy program. Nicole teaches a rhythmic and sometimes vigorous Vinyasa style class that emphasizes the importance of fluid movement linked closely to pranayama (breath awareness). Nicole’s creative sequencing and intelligent alignment, encourages physical stability, increases flexibility, and enhances the body’s natural detoxification process. Nicole has a technical approach to the postures, affirming one’s commitment to practice and offering a mindful approach to living that is evident both on and off the mat. Her distinctive style synchronizes breath with movement which she believes brings the transformative qualities of yoga and healthful living to the forefront. Over the past 14 years, Nicole’s teaching experience contains a broad range of class and student types including prenatal, postnatal, youth, adult and seniors. She is also a student herself and enjoys taking classes with new teachers and styles for personal enjoyment and to expand her own perspectives.
In this style of yoga, movement is synchronized to the breath. This style allows for a lot of variety: sitting, balancing, possible inverting, or lying down. It may also include one or more of the salutations (sun A, Sun B, Sun C, or moon). The Teacher will cue you to move from one pose to another using an inhale or exhale. Modifications are always offered with the opportunity to cue up to more challenging poses if desired. Prior yoga experience is recommended.
