Coming from a background of dance and gymnastics, Jenna saw yoga as a new physical challenge. She attended regular yoga classes on her college campus and quickly fell in love with the practice. She began teaching in 2010.
For Jenna, yoga has been a way to find peace, grounding, energy, playfulness and humility. She approaches each practice with a curious mind and strives to learn something new about herself every time she steps onto her mat.
In Jenna’s classes, poses are carefully placed and sequenced to offer a safe, fun and playful experience. She encourages her students to be mindful of their limitations and helps them to adapt each class to their own needs, body types and ability levels. She is grateful she is able to pursue her passion with this wonderful community in Medford, Massachusetts.
Amie’s first experience with yoga was in gym class. Not a natural athlete, Amie shied away from anything that involved hand-eye coordination. Yoga proved to be physically challenging but not aggressive or competitive. She has since been amazed by the bountiful benefits of yoga!
For the past 10 years, Amie has taken every opportunity to get on her mat. She became a teacher in 2012 and has trained with Frog Lotus Yoga, YogaHope, Triple Gem School of Thai Massage, North End Yoga and Christie Rosen.
Amie’s teaching emphasizes staying present on your mat and cultivating gratitude and self-love through the yoga practice. Amie loves developing creative flows designed to increase strength, flexibility, and balance in the body.

Holland’s yoga practice began as a casual affair. It took a few years for her to fully realize the massive impact that the movements of the body have on the mind, emotions and relationships. It wasn’t long before she quit her office job and dedicated her energies to the things and people that she loves, to her health and the health of those around her. She likes to think that yoga has helped immensely in making her a better, nice, and kinder person, and continues to do so.
Holland completed the 200-hour teacher training program at O2 Yoga Studio in Cambridge, MA in 2012. She has continued her training with Josh Summers, completing Yin Yoga teacher training in 2015. She is passionate about painting, For more information about Holland, check out her website.
Kara began practicing yoga in high school after a handful of orthopedic surgeries left her unable to participate in team sports. As a result, her teaching seeks to align the body in a healthy way to correct alignment issues that occur on the mat and in our everyday lives. She believes in a practice that is at once joyful, challenging, and safe for all bodies.
Kara completed her 200-hour training during a residency at the Kripalu Center in Stockbridge, MA in 2011.

An educator by day and a yogini by night, Malissa first stepped onto the mat in 2007. Feeling both humbled and empowered by an invigorating vinyasa practice, she embarked on her 200-Hour teaching certification with Suzanne Leitner-Wise’s US1Yoga School in Alexandria, VA. Inspired by the rhythmic movement of vinyasa flow and the precise alignment of Iyengar, Malissa uses fluid sequencing to blur the seam between power and grace. A registered yoga teacher since 2010, she seeks to empower her students to rediscover their inner strength—just as her teachers have done for her. As a teacher, practitioner, and student, Malissa firmly believes that that yoga practice can become a transformative agent of peace, joy, and self-acceptance.
Marca came to yoga 10 years ago during a time she was training for marathons, teaching step classes, and raising her 3 sons. Feeling a need for something with less impact but no less challenging, she was initially lured by the physical aspects of the practice, but kept returning to her mat as she experienced the many other benefits yoga brought into her life. Wanting to share this gift with others, she completed a 200-hour teacher training at Down Under Yoga in Newton/Brookline with Natasha Rizopolous and Kate Heffernan, and a 300-hour training at The Boston Yoga School with Ame Wren. Her background includes degrees in nursing and exercise physiology, both of which have helped to inform her practice and teaching. Her classes are alignment based, intelligently and creatively sequenced, and rooted in breath and flow. She encourages her students to honor their own unique bodies, tune in to their inner voice, and practice in a safe and gentle way on and off their mat.
