Like so many others, Jenny Meshna began practicing Yoga in 2005 as a way to become more flexible. After only a handful of classes she was amazed to find that Yoga not only made her more flexible, but it also built up her strength, calmed her mind easing every day anxieties and all around livened her soul. Overjoyed with all of the benefits Yoga brought to her own life she knew she wanted to share this experience with as many people as possible. This led her to her 200-hour Hatha Teacher Training taught by Robin Anderson in 2010. Now teaching Vinyasa Yoga in the Merrimack Valley area, Jenny completed her 300-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training taught by Jacqui Bonwell in the Spring of 2015. When Jenny is not teaching Yoga, she is a full time Caregiver making everyday life more accessible and enjoyable for the elderly. She encourages everyone, on and off the mat, to meet life exactly as they are and let go. Let go of expectation. Let go of anticipation. And breathe.
Laura began her personal yoga practice as a way of managing stress in her life. Through her own practice she realized the life-shifting potential that yoga can have on a person. She began to bring yoga into her preschool classroom where she saw children begin to learn how yoga can help their bodies and brains. Laura studied and became a certified YogaKids teacher and trainer to better support the students in her classroom. It was the perfect way to merge her love for yoga and her passion for teaching kids.
Laura has had the privilege to train with Marsha Wenig the founder of the YogaKids program. The YogaKids philosophy is to educate the “whole” child by blending yoga with reading, music, body awareness and academic skills in a non-competitive environment. Laura strives to incorporate all of these things into each of her classes. Laura has also had the privilege of participating in Ring One of the Circus Yoga training with Erin Maile O’Keefe and the Stretch What Matters, level 1 Training with Elizabeth Goranson. Yoga is a great, non-competitive, and non-threatening way for these children to connect.
Laura completed her 200 hour adult teacher training through Divine Play Yoga where she studied with Claire Este-McDonald and Gregor Singleton. Recently, she participated in prenatal yoga training with Lorraine Shedoudi where she learned how to offer a way for mother’s to be to remain strong and steady through one of the most important transitions of their lives. Pregnancy is an amazing process and it is truly where children begin to teach us about strength, flexibly and balance. Laura continues to love learning and evolving through her life and yoga practice.
Jean Popovich has been helping students with their yoga practices and cooking skills since 2003. She completed her teacher training with Kim Valerie at Yoga Spirit Studios and in 2005, studied Classical Hatha Yoga at Yoga Vidya Dham in Nasik, India.
Jean has extensive prenatal / postnatal teaching training and taught Hatha Yoga throughout both her pregnancies.
