Erin Brandao (E-RYT 500 )
I took my first yoga class in college in the early 2000’s and all I can remember about it is that I always fell asleep in savasana, the resting post at the end of every class. An workout that ended with a nap sounded pretty good to me! Over the next few years I flirted off and on with yoga until it became an integral part of my life and recovery after the death of my mother. The first time someone suggested I could be a teacher myself, I laughed and said no way. Good thing the Divine has a sense of humor too, because in 2011 I became certified through Namah Shivaya’s teacher training program and now I serve as the lead trainer for our weekday program. What I love most about yoga is its diversity. There is a yoga style, class, or teacher for everyone. I teach active physically challenging classes like ashtanga and all levels flow, relaxing and accessible options like restorative and gentle, as well as a weekly yoga class just for kids! Yoga has given me so many gifts, from physical health to mental peace to spiritual awakening, and I would love to share the gifts of yoga with you as well. Sign up for a group class or contact the studio to book a private lesson with me and begin your own journey today!

Denae Richards

As a Certified Sound Practitioner, Denae has been studying & practicing sound meditation for many years. Sound has been a part of her life since early childhood, playing the piano, singing in the choir, playing saxophone in high school & college. After experiencing gongs and singing bowls for the first time, she was immediately drawn to sound in a way she had never before experienced. She continues to explore different ways in which sound & frequency has an innate connection with healing the body on many levels: emotional, spiritual & physical. In August 2017, Denae became a graduate with honors from The Globe Sound Healing Institute.

Wendy Loven

I started practicing yoga in 2003 in order to help my body recover from a back injury. I soon discovered that yoga was good for so much more than healing back pain, it helped in all areas of my life, from reducing stress to building strength. In 2013, I completed the 200 hour training at Namah Shivaya and in 2015, I completed the 300 hour training. I love introducing new students to the benefits of yoga and showing them the myriad of ways that yoga can be used to improve every aspect of your life!
