Health & Wellness

Rhode Island is home to some amazing yoga and wellness studios. Having been a student of yoga for over 20 years and a teacher since 2012, here are some of the places I take myself when I need some self care.

East Bay:

Synergy Yoga & Wellness has been my home studio ever since owner Alyssa Sullivan set up her shingle. Originally a Baptiste inspired heated vinyasa studio, it has recently evolved into offering other styles, such as Yin Yoga and Yoga for Strength, into their regular class schedule. Synergy also hosts a variety of workshops and guest master teachers events. If you’re on the East Bay, chances are you’ll find me here on my mat. Check out their schedule here: Synergy Yoga & Wellness

Barrington Public Library hosts a FREE Beginner Vinyasa Yoga class with ME, on Monday’s at 9:30am. This class offers creative sequencing suitable to all levels. I invite participants to slow down, tune in to their own breath and expression of movement and flow. Class time concludes with a guided meditation.
