Heather Brown (Kripalu RYT200) – Heather has been a dancer and a mover for her entire life. Living with Cystic Fibrosis, staying active is not only enjoyable, but also an important part of staying healthy. After fracturing her femur in a motorcycle accident in 2010, she was looking for a less competitive way than dance to regain her active lifestyle. Yoga became that bridge. Through the practice of yoga, she has regained the mobility, strength and acceptance that were once thought to be lost forever. Last summer, she decided to take the plunge and become a certified Kripalu yoga teacher. In her classes, she draws upon her body awareness from being a dancer and ballet teacher to articulate clear yoga instruction with the kindness and acceptance that Kripalu practice is known for. She is hoping to give her students an opportunity to reconnect with themselves through the practice of yoga.
Alicja is fairly new to yoga, in yoga years. While being a flight attendant, she began practicing with a couple of beginner DVDs at home, trying to find a way to ease tension in her back. Later on while traveling, Alicja deepened her practice with a variety of teachers around the world. After moving to Massachusetts, she completed 200 hour Vinyasa Flow teacher training with Joschi Yoga Institute in New York. The intense training opened up a whole new world to Alicja, and she has been teaching ever since. When not teaching or practicing she is a stay at home mom to a energetic son. Alicja vision is to enrich her students with everything she has learned though her yoga journey.
