Sean Lanning is a certified RYT-500 Yoga Teacher, an ERYT-200 teacher in training, a licensed CT Realtor, and a Dharma School graduate from Broad Brook, CT. After several years of work in marketing, music and direct sales, Sean decided to try a yoga class on Thanksgiving of 2013. Through the sweat and crazy, un-explainable tears, he was hooked. It was a clear fork in the road. He had to choose – either repress it all again and just trudge through life, or take a risk and become more fully alive. He decided to dive in and get certified to teach yoga. Inspired by his love for live music and community, Sean has since been teaching at studios and music & arts festivals throughout the Northeast. In February 2015 he left his desk job to follow his heart. He committed to his spiritual education, teaching, and returning to writing.
He has developed his own style of healing that is funky and fun.
Classes are often filled with joy and laughter…
Heatherly Dancy Rooke
Heatherly began practicing yoga about six years ago after becoming interested in self-exploration and physical wellness, in 2014 she completed a 200-hour teacher training at a local yoga studio and has been teaching vinyasa based classes since.
To each class she brings a gentle uplifting nature, and creates a flow infused with sequences to build a little heat and moments of pause to check in on balance, flexibility and strength - in class it is important to share smiles, remembering that we are all students practicing together.
This Vinyasa class is suitable for all levels of experience.
Your body is saying yes please...
Lexi Allaway is a 2017 graduate of the 200 hour Embodyoga® Teacher Training. Embodyoga®, closely compared to Hatha Yoga styles, is an integrated approach founded on principles of inquiry, compassion, and discernment within the bodymind. Before Lexi became a Yoga instructor, her movements were shaped by a 12 year background in dance from her local studio, Impact Dance of Atlanta, in Atlanta Georgia. She turned to yoga for healing and grounding which has been developing her personal practice for 6 years. This inspiration lead her to migrate to The Pioneer Valley in 2016, to study Embodyoga® with Patty Townsend and Corinne Andrews, of Yoga Center Amherst.
Lexi teaches from her heart and offers a purposeful Yoga Asana class accessible to all levels. Inspired by organic movement, she incorporates music, meditation, deep breathing, and gentle flow, or intelligent sequencing of dynamic movement…
