Hatha: Moderate


This class is taught by:

Divya Epstein-Lubow

Divya says, "The essence of yoga is a joyful expansion of our best selves through the vehicle of the physical body. It is a given that we all face challenges. Yoga helps us meet the challenges by practicing being n this moment with wisdom and compassion."
 
Divya's joy of being in the body and her honesty permeate her teaching.
 
She has been teaching yoga since 1988. Her initial training was in Kripalu Yoga. In recent years, her main inspirations have been Sara Powers' Insight Yoga, Vipassanna meditation, Anusaura yoga, and Iyengar yoga.
 
Diyva Epstein-Lubow holds a Masters Degree in Dance Education from New York University.

April Smith

April whole-heartedly embraces yoga as a transformative path to awaken to our best selves and live fully with joy, intention and compassion.

Her yoga journey and deep appreciation for the practice began in 1992 as a student at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, CA, where she was inspired by the studio’s innovative and now celebrated teachers, including Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffmann, Bryan Kest and Seane Corn. April’s yoga journey connected her in 1997 with master teacher Sara Powers and the integration of Vinyasa flow with slower, deeper styles of yoga and meditation.

April has taught Vinyasa and Yin yoga in New England since 1998. She completed her yoga teacher training with Sarah Powers in 2012 and completed her 200 hour Vinyasa YTT certification at Eyes of the World Yoga in Providence in 2015.

April’s precise but playful teaching style blends Vinyasa sequences, long-held “yin” postures, core strengthening, and meditation to create a dynamic and balanced yoga practice. Mindfulness techniques weave through practice to deepen relaxation and spark self-inquiry on and off the mat.

Joan Corey

"The essence of yoga is moving away from outside distraction, toward an inner awareness of our complete being, peeling away the layers of conditioned thinking and behaviors; living in the present moment" 
 
Joan received her certificate in Integrative Yoga with Ellen Schaeffer in 2007. She was recently invited to be on the teaching staff for the 2014 Integrative Yoga Teacher Training and is very excited to share her knowledge of Yoga to future teachers. Prior to teaching yoga Joan was a fitness instructor for over 20 years, with a BS in physical education from URI. She has taught physical education at Saint Augustine School for 13 years.

The opportunity to teach at Breathing Time Yoga feels like “coming home” as Joan grew up less than 1 mile from the studio. She currently resides in the beautiful town of Foster.
Hatha Yoga: Think of Hatha as the big umbrella of yoga that covers the multiplicity of yoga styles that are practiced today. Hatha classes incorporate postures (asana) and breathing techniques (pranayama) and have a goal of bringing union to the opposite qualities of sun (Ha) and moon (tha).
 
This class is appropriate to those who have been practicing yoga for at least six months, or are quick learners with no current physical limitations. If not, we recommend our beginners, restorative and therapeutic classes.

Breathing Time Yoga is a community where people are nourished physically and spiritually.

We offer yoga as affordable health care, with a diversity of classes for a diversity of individuals.

We teach yoga as a path to equanimity and grace.
