Meghan Rozanski
When I was a kid, my dad used to take my sister and I to the gym where he would lift weights, swim, run and play racquetball. We were too young to do anything except swim in the pool but we would get so excited about going to the gym. My dad never thought of working out as a hassle, it was a highlight to the day, and that's exactly what was passed down to me!
I found my love for movement in dance and running which carried on into my teenage and college years until I injured my knee and had to stop both entirely.

A few years ago, I began teaching spin classes and more recently, I became certified as a pre-natal yoga instructor. I gave up my PR job to take a managing job at Back Bay Yoga and Sweat and Soul Yoga and am now a full time yoga and spin instructor.
My thoughts on exercise haven't shifted much since my days at the gym with my dad. I love to motivate people and help them achieve their goals just as my students inspire me to complete goals of my own. I want people to leave my class feeling good about themselves and their bodies. I want them to sweat, feel challenged and to have fun! My classes are available to all levels and everyone is welcome.
Because of my regular yoga practice, I am now able to run multiple times per week and just finished my first half marathon! Yoga works!!

Every day I am grateful for being able to do what I do and in turn, grateful for my own teachers and students who allow me to do what I love.

Matt Rutkowski
I completed my 200-hour, Yoga Alliance-registered training with Inner Strength Studios in the Spring of 2012. I have also studied the craft of adjusting and assisting with Lauren Star, Daniel Max and Vyda Bielkus, as well as the Shiva Rea-crafted module “Mandala of Asanas”, delivered by Chanel Luck. I am currently completing a Bachelor’s of Music at UMass Boston. Forever a student!

It is with this curiosity and thirst for understanding that I approach the mat. I would love to prepare you to explore the possibilities of the physical body, enjoy the sensations afforded to one by tuning into the breath, and shed the misconceptions that playtime is just for kids.

Erica

Erica Bornstein
Being a dancer all her life, Erica has always communicated through movement. Her mother will attest to her twirling down the aisles at the supermarket since she could walk. She fell in love with yoga at a very young age when she was introduced to it as a way to stay in top dancer shape, but later in life discovered it was so much more than that. As an adult she developed a regular yoga practice and began to see changes not only in her physical body, but also in the way she reacted to everyday challenges. The yoga was making her strong, but subconsciously, it was teaching her to take one thing at a time, to remain calmer, and to trust that everything was as it should be. Erica found herself constantly thinking about yoga, talking about it, reading about it, so she decided to see what would happen if she registered for a teacher training in 2010.
Erica now is a full-time yoga teacher and could not be more thrilled to be a part of the incredible yoga community in Boston. Erica teaches an athletic and strong vinyasa flow, with focus on movement along with basics and alignment, and she encourages students to personalize their practice for their own needs. She teaches yoga with a sense of fun and creativity, always has a killer playlist, and her humor and playful spirit is ever present in her classes. Overall, Erica believes that yoga is an accommodating practice, accessible to all people, that requires only loving care for the body and the willingness to keep an open mind and heart. Among her many teachers, Erica is indebted to Chanel Luck, Bonnie Argo, and Lynne Begier and is continually inspired by so many of the teachers in the local Boston yoga community who are truly amazing.

Her classes are challenging, dynamic, thoughtful and showcase her high energy and optimism. Cara hopes to have each and every one of her students feeling better from when they arrived. Whether its rediscovering a sense of confidence, being inspired to take on new challenges or feeling more grounded and at ease. Cara wants to provide a space where her students can be completely who they are and can celebrate it, just like she does when she's on her mat, on her bike, on the roads or lifting weights and doing burps. Namaste!

Vinyasa with Relaxation $10 CASH only or Membership Jessica Emilfarb Sunday, 12/28 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM 90 min
This class combines elements of vinyasa, yin and restorative to create an invigorating, relaxing and deeply restoring experience. We will begin class with a restorative posture to ground and settle. Then we will spend time moving through flowing lunar sequences linked with breath to warm and loosen the outer layers of the body. The final portion of class will offer a few yin poses (deep stretching which targets the tissues and fascia of the body) and then finish with a purely restorative and supportive ending, prepping the body for a blissful extended savasana. This class will provide the opportunity for students to bring balance to their bodies and practice through three very different but complementary styles.

Alissa has been an athlete most of her life. Originally a runner, she found her way to the mat after struggling with a number of injuries. Although hesitant to try yoga for fear that it would jeopardize her daily calorie burn, she decided to see for herself what all the buzz was about.
