Earthsong Yoga Instructors
 Gail Cannon is a Kripalu certified Yoga instructor with over 33 years of yoga practice and 19 years of teaching experience. Kripalu is the yoga of compassion and deeper awareness. Gail takes this compassion into her Ashtanga practice as well, making it both dynamic and nurturing.
Gail has studied the Ashtanga system (first and second series) with the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois, his grandson Sharath and his son Manju Jois. She took three months in 2003 to study with Tim Miller in Encinitis, CA. She continues to study with Nancy Gilgoff for a deeper understanding of the healing aspects of yoga.
Gail traveled to India to study in 2005 and 2006. 
Gail was the owner of Acara Yoga in Southboro from 2005-2010. She became the Director/Owner of Earthsong Yoga in November 2011.
She has studied Thai yoga massage and Ayurveda with the Lotus Palm School under Kam Thye Chow.
Gail is available for private instruction and on site corporate classes, and offers  workshops in Ashtanga yoga and Thai massage for partners. When not teaching, you can find her on the road riding her bike, or on the water in her kayak, or on the trails with her furry companion Cassidey and her not so furry husband Steve.

Lynn Alimo has been practicing and studying several disciplines of hatha yoga for twenty years to include Kripalu, Iyengar and vinyasa flow yoga. In 2006, Lynn’s continued interest in yoga led her to the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge Massachusetts where she became a certified Kripalu yoga instructor. Lynn has participated in numerous yoga workshops and conferences over the years and in early 2015 she completed Kripalu’s 500 hour yoga teacher training certification program. Lynn’s yoga teacher training included specialized modules on meditation, yogic breathing (pranayama), advanced postures, teaching yoga to specialized populations (seniors, teens, cancer thrivers, prenatal and back pain), and Ayurveda. In addition to teaching weekly classes, Lynn leads yoga retreats and workshops on meditation, stress reduction, yogic breathing, and on the essentials of yoga. Lynn is also available for individual private instruction and corporate training.  
Lynn’s classes honor the rich history and tradition of Kripalu Yoga while maintaining a modern yet simple approach to practicing yoga where all body types, ages and fitness levels can adapt and benefit. Contact lynn@simplyyogawithlynn.com

Lorilee Strom I came to yoga seeking relief from chronic pain; found it, and much more. I finished my first teacher training (RYT200) in 2005, and haven’t stopped studying since. My path brought me to the exciting new discoveries regarding fascia, and to the MELT Method. It all makes perfect sense, and I feel better than ever. I move more fluidly, and have been able to resume activities that I’d avoided because of arthritis pain. My passion is to share the magic of MELT with others. Contact lor.strom@verizon.net

Sarah Wingert Yoga showed up in Sarah’s life several times before she embraced it. First in 2007, when a kundalini guru gave a demonstration to her high school art class. Next, when her travels brought her to a brief stay at a Buddhist monastery. Eventually, in 2009, she signed up for a basics class (she doesn’t know why) and accidentally went into the wrong room, where she wobbled her way through an advanced 90 minute flow, spending most of the time huffing and puffing on her mat. In spite of a seemingly rocky beginning, the practice became a deeply transformative part of her life. She completed her teacher training at Health Yoga Life in Beacon Hill and weaves mindfulness and philosophy into her vinyasa flow classes, hoping to help her students bring yoga off of their mat and into their lives.

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.
