This class is taught by:

Jean-Marie Belzile

Jean-Marie has been teaching various styles of yoga since 2006.  She attended her first yoga class in 1995 when she was a group fitness instructor, and she immediately incorporated yoga postures into her classes to promote flexibility.  She subsequently received her 200-hour YTT certification in Anahata Integral yoga, and her 500-hour certification in Shakti yoga.  As a perpetual student, Jean-Marie has an ongoing self-study practice, which consists of daily meditation and being present in each moment.  She invites you to experience her diverse teachings in each of her YogaBalance classes.

Evelyn O'Connor

Evelyn is a graduate of the YogaWorks 200-Hour Teacher Training. Prior to earning her certification, she worked at YogaBalance as a studio assistant. When Evelyn took her first yoga class in 2013, her goal was to become more physically fit, but soon found that she gained significant positive emotional benefits from a consistent practice. Evelyn aims to create and share an environment in which individuals may cultivate their own peace on the mat and carry that calm into their lives.

Elise Noga

Elise received her 200-hour certification through YogaWorks in 2017. She has practiced yoga regularly for over two years, beginning with her last job where they had yoga classes offered on site. During that class, she developed a passion for the physical practice as well as the spiritual development and enjoyed the stress-relieving benefits of yoga. She has been taking what she has learned through training and has been able to apply it by teaching yoga classes at her current place of work, where she teaches all levels. Elise is excited to have you practice with her and continue learning more about yoga with her in class.

Kate White

Kate received her RYT-500hour certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in 2014, her RYT-200hour certification from YogaWorks in 2013, and her RYT-200hour certification from Zarnay Yoga in 2009. She successfully passed the rigorous and prestigious YogaWorks Certification Assessment in NYC in 2014 and has assisted Natasha Rizopoulos and Jocelyn Casey-Whiteman with their YogaWorks yoga teacher trainings in Boston and NH respectively. Kate's classes focuses on alignment and cultivating skill in the postures and the use of the breath to tap into our subtle energy and create a state of inner calm and ease. Kate is also the Manager of YogaBalance, where her tenacity and business acumen have helped create one of New England's top yoga studios.

Missy Page

Missy began practicing yoga more than a decade ago initially seeking flexibility and strength after years as a trained dance. She quickly fell in love with the practice and realized it helped her find balance for her fast paced lifestyle. She recently realized her dream of becoming a yoga instructor after completing her 200-hour yoga certification with YogaWorks (right here at YogaBalance.) When she’s not on her yoga mat she enjoys paddle boarding, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. Missy is excited to share her love for yoga with her students.

Gen MacKenzie

Gen Mackenzie is ERYT200 and RYT500 (Rolf Gates, Jacqui Bonwell and David Vendetti). She likes to teach a well-balanced class- delivering strength and flexibility for both body and mind. She is known for her fun choreography and eclectic music selection. “Yoga is a lifelong journey and my own experience has taught me that the challenges we are presented have the potential to lead us to amazing growth. I use my own practice to quiet down enough to see the new path presented to me.” Gen is dedicated to bringing yoga to those in recovery. She recently completed the Y12SR Teacher Training, a program that integrates yoga and The 12 Steps. When she isn't at the studio, she can be found outside on a walk, or leading yoga classes with her friends in the recovery community.

Maryjean Kimball

Maryjean came to yoga through her years in fitness and ballet training. Her personal yoga practice became her passion. She loved the external physical gains that her body made in flexibility and strength. She soon realized the true “power” of yoga lies in its ability to cultivate internal balance and clarity of mind and went on to complete her 200hr Yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center. As an external and creative student, Maryjean continues to study all forms of yoga, allowing her practice to change and evolve and guides her classes with precision, enthusiasm, and safe alignment allowing her students to reach their goals for both body and mind.
In this well-rounded class, we will stretch and strengthen our bodies, open our hearts and calm our minds. We will practice longer-held postures with a focus on alignment to refine and deepen our practice. We will practice flow sequences to help us connect with our breath and our subtle energy. Guided by the wisdom of yoga philosophy, we will learn to relate more deeply and authentically with ourselves and the world around us. Appropriate for all - modifications will be offered for beginners.
