Sara Lepine - Certified Yoga Instructor
Sara became passionate about practicing yoga at The Center during the summer of 2016. She felt the positive changes that yoga brought to every aspect of her life. The Center cultivated her yoga practice through its warm and welcoming community of inspirational and authentic yogis (students and teachers alike). In the fall of 2016, Life & Teacher Training was offered in Michigan with Eric and Caren Paskel. Training was a opportunity to have a greater understanding of this life changing science and she felt it was an active pathway to healing her own emotional instabilities. Initially, teaching yoga was not the goal, but was the result of her enthusiasm for sharing this profound gift with others.
Sara is also a Jin Shin Jyutsu® Practitioner and Self-Help Instructor. Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio philosophy is an art which harmonizes the life energy of the body. It is practiced by gently placing fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonize and restore energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate through normal daily living. The physical practice of yoga is a perfect compliment to this subtle art as both philosophies coincide.

Julia Hill - Yoga Instructor
“Your breathing should flow gracefully, like a river, like a water snake crossing the water, and not like a chain of rugged mountains or the gallop of a horse. To master our breath is to be in control of our bodies and minds. Each time we find ourselves dispersed and find it difficult to gain control of ourselves by different means, the method of watching the breath should always be used.” -Thich Naht Hanh
All of our Therapists work independently and each has attached contact/business name information.
