Stephanie M Hyland OWNer
I am passionate about instilling mindfulness and body awareness into each individual I encounter. I keep a non-judgmental approach to teaching to all walks of life! This is how I was taught to embrace yoga and how I wish to share it with others!
I began my yoga journey in the midst of a very challenging emotional time and I have encouraged the similar techniques to others ever since! My yoga classes focus on toning and strengthening the body but also breathing and pausing to recognize who you are in this very moment!
I first began regularly practicing yoga in 2015 because I was enticed by the physical aspects and creating all kinds of shapes with my body. After some time, I discovered the mind, body, soul connection through yoga and realized that the physical piece was only one tiny part. I was beginning to realize that yoga was helping me become the best version of myself. Yoga has helped me through the ups and downs of life and I was also able to come off all prescription medications. After going back and forth for a while, I decided to become certified as a teacher because I wanted to spread the joy of yoga and make it available to as many people as I could. I received my 200 hour Hatha Yoga teaching certification through Marianne Wells Yoga School in July 2018, a training based on teachings and concepts from BKS Iyengar. Additional trainings include restorative yoga and yoga nidra with Maureen Miller from Yoga NH.

Riley Cammett began practicing yoga as a way to remain calm, focused, and in tune with herself. She has been practicing the physical asanas of yoga for the majority of her life but began to deepen her spiritual path of meditation and mindfulness for the past 3 years. Through the Vinyasa style, she began releasing her left over physical energy through the practice, as well as truly beginning to feel one with herself.
She has been trained in Vinyasa yoga since April of 2017. She achieved her RYT-200 from Prasada Yoga Center in North Hampton, NH and was trained by Dana Lincoln and Michelle Plante.
She studied Reiki under her Reiki Master Teacher, Jocelyn Boucher, the North Shore Medium, to enhance her spiritual practice and path. She received her Reiki 1 practitioner certificate in August of 2018. It is her hopes that by adding Reiki to her classes, she can create an atmosphere of physical asanas coupled with spirituality that leads to deepened experience in her class for all those to experience.
She is very open with her personal practice and bases her classes and personal sessions on not only what she feels her fellow yogis need physically, but she aims to calm the minds of her students while helping them to find their inner peace. She works with the form and alignment of her students, Pranayama - breathing techniques, as well as meditation and Reiki to intensify their experience. It is her goal to assist everyone that comes in her paths with finding their true divine by restoring their spiritual and physical process
