Strength, Stretch & Flow

This class is taught by:

Liz Butler

Liz believes that yoga can positively affect the wellbeing of any person open to the experience, and as a teacher is committed to meeting her students where they are.
She strives to provide a non-competitive space for students of all levels to discover, explore, and grow their yoga practice. Her sequences are designed to spark courage, curiosity and kindness, while honoring the sense of vast interconnection and peace that yoga opens up within us.
Liz has been a dedicated yoga practitioner since 2003. She received her 200 hour certification in vinyasa yoga in 2009 with Tom Gillette and trained in prenatal yoga with Jacci Reynolds in 2010. She is currently pursuing her 500 hour certification with Theresa Murphy.

Nicole Towne

Having always been fascinated by movement and creating art with the body, Nicole completed ten years of dance education while in grade school. In college, she discovered yoga. While dance was beautiful, the practice consisted of forcing the body into an already pre-existing shape. She loved the freedom that yoga gave her: being able to create the shapes with the body. Yoga helped her discover a new found creative gateway that lead to a deeper understanding of herself. Wanting to deepen her practice and to be able to share this connection of mind and body with others, she completed her 200 hour Viniyoga certification at Breathing Time Yoga. Nicole's classes are a shared space surrounded by the belief that each student is having a unique experience; and to develop compassion towards the self to meet ourselves exactly where we are, as we are.

Jenny Little

Jenny Little (E-RYT 200, RYT 500, MS) believes yoga offers an opportunity to experience profound freedom and profound integration- physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and her primary intention in teaching yoga is to assist students toward self-discovery and healing. Jenny weaves her knowledge and appreciation of anatomy with various yoga asana techniques and with yogic philosophy to provide a holistic approach to yoga and to assist students in uprooting core beliefs and habits that are affecting their ability to thrive. She teaches from the heart with authenticity, humor and kindness.

Jenny began a daily practice of yoga in 2002 and began teaching in 2013. She received her 200 RYT certification in 2013 with 8 Limbs Yoga Centers in Seattle, WA; earned her 300 RYT certification in 2016 with Theresa Murphy in Providence, RI and completed her PYT Certification with Prenatal Yoga Center located in New York City. Jenny has been fortunate to learn from, and continue to learn from, many experienced and practiced teachers and in particular, expresses deep gratitude to Anne Phyfe Palmer, Melina Meza, Jenny Hayo, Theresa Murphy, as well as her children Lucy and Theo.

Jenny currently teaches group classes, individuals, and specialty workshops in the New England area. See for more info!

Kate Kataja

Strength. Balance. Perspective. Kindness. A shared experience. A grounding. Flight, physically and metaphorically. For me, at its core, yoga is a way to get out of my head and into the universe. Yoga is, simply, showing up for yourself."

Kate was first introduced to yoga through acting classes in college, and has been practicing for over a decade. She received her RYT-200 in 2013 through the American Viniyoga Institute and is registered with both AVI and the Yoga Alliance. She has also studied yin yoga and meditation with Josh Summers and chakra vinyasa with Coral Brown.

She aims to share the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits she has received from a deep and consistent practice with her students, helping them to find their own mind-body connection and move toward balance and body acceptance. Her style of teaching is challenging, energizing, creative, and rooted in the belief of individualizing asana to the practitioner.

Outside of yoga, Kate is a theater director, dramaturg, and creative producer, working as the artistic associate for The Wilbury Theatre Group, and in the development office at Trinity Repertory Company, where she also teaches yoga at the Young Actors Summer Institute. Kate loves spin class, weight training, and yoga on the beach. She lives in Providence with her two fantastic fur babies.

Strength, Stretch & Flow: Starting where you are, build strength, increase flexibility and dive into the subtle dance of flowing from one posture to the next to the rhythm of your breath in a meditation on movement.

Our approach to flow, also known as vinyasa, is inclusive for students of all levels of ability. The teachers will let you know how you can adapt the practice to suit you. There is no need to "power through!"
