Favorite pilates pose or workout and why:

Plank- Yoga/Pilates crossover- Never gets easy! Lots of fun plank variations keep it challenging and fun. When I rock a plank, I feel like all my muscles are firing and that’s bang for my buck!

Best advice for new students?

Congratulations on showing up for yourself! Don’t hesitate to talk to the instructor about concerns or questions you may have as it relates to the classes. It takes consistency to get the results you are looking for and it may take several classes to connect your mind and body to the exercises.

Where did you grow up:

Baltic, CT


Favorite Quote:

”it’s weird not to be weird”


Favorite yoga pose or workout and why:

I can’t be very specific with just one favorite. I have many! I try to make the best of what I am feeling that day when I am working out. I love to run especially with beautiful surroundings like the woods or by the water. Taking in the salty air mixed with the smell of the warm tar and honeysuckles is by far my favorite but so is doing a hot yoga class to amazing music where I’m completely soaked in sweat


What to expect from Jeriann's Class

  • Energy: Jeriann's teaching is rooted in a energetic flow to open the physical body and deepen mental awareness.   
  • Soul: With an eye for good music, you will love losing yourself to the beats she incorporates into her practice. 
  • Support. Mental, physical, emotional, Jeriann's got you.

“Remember that wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.” -Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist



Music you are digging right now:

Layup, Lord Huron, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Kings of Leon, and Mumford and Sons


Favorite yoga pose or workout and why:

My favorite yoga pose changes from Forearm Stand and Child’s Pose daily - sometimes I crave the freedom and delicacy of forearm stand, while other days I just need to hang out in child’s pose in order to get grounded and release tension throughout my body.


Best advice for new students?

Stick with it and enjoy the journey! They call it a yoga practice for a reason. I think that yoga still has this stigma around it that it’s an easy thing, when it fact, it is quite possibly one of the only times in your life when you are challenging yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically, all at the same time. You have the ability to really break yourself open to face who you are, and who you want to become. It’s actually a pretty awesome opportunity if you think about it that way.


Guilty pleasure?

Ice cream, one of the great loves of my life.


Song that most wakes you up in the morning?

“Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine (it also makes a better mid-afternoon pick-me-up than a cup of coffee)


What to expect from Shelby's Class

  • Work Out: A full body workout to help you strengthen your muscles, stretch and release tension in your fascia, and increase mobility throughout your joints.

    1. Work In: Who we are on the mat, is who we are off the mat. How do you want your yoga practice to help you on your journey?

    2. All The Feels: Whether its inspiration, fun, grace, peace, energy (the list goes on), Shelby hopes to bring feeling and intention to each and every class (and some pretty cool playlists)

Be mindful of your body and what it needs, everyday is different. You know your body best. Breathe & have fun!

Erin Gallagher

“Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should”.



Most inspiring person in time:

My Grandma. She had children, finished school, had a career, a social life, is the most quintessential grandmother (knitting, baking), still completely independent, is non-judgemental of others, has more energy than anyone I know, and not matter what… she still gets dinner served hot on time, always. She’s my real-life inspiration for being able to find balance and do it all.


Music you are digging right now:

The Revivalists,  Alabama Shakes, and NF.


Favorite yoga pose or workout and why: 

The “knee to nose/same side elbow/opposite side elbow” - it’s challenging yet every skill level can accomplish the series, plus you can take it one step further and fly (my favorite).


Song the most wakes you up in the morning?

The Lumineers - Sleep On The Floor. It reminds me to get up and follow my dreams, to take a chance and live... not just be alive.


Best advice for new students?

We all start as beginners, don’t be intimidated.  Approach your class with an open mind and know that you are more capable than you’ve ever believed.


What to expect from Erin’s Class

  • A fun, positive class where you’re encouraged to take your pose & fullest expression to the next level and will leave feeling balanced.

Favorite Quote:

The mountains are calling and I must go -  John Muir


Favorite yoga pose:

Pigeon - I dread it and love it at the same time. 


What to expect from Julie's Class

  • Fun! You're going to sweat, laugh, and flow to some groovy beats. Julie doesn't take anything too seriously so you do you and just flow to the beat of the music even if you have no idea what you are doing.

  • Core: Julie loves some solid core work so rarely will you get away without some good yogi bicycles, boat poses or just plain old crunches. After a few classes you may even start to look forward to it!

  • Save the best for last: Julie went into yoga for the physical aspect but enjoyed the stillness and silence that came with a regular practice. Long holds are saved for the end so you can really calm the nervous system and shut down your monkey mind.
