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.

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.

Yoga is an excellent way to build core strength. In this class, we will explore postures that focus on the primary muscles that stabilize the “core” of your body, and that strengthen and stretch the abdomen, back, buttocks, hamstrings and hip flexors. Your body will enjoy a variety of abdominal work, back bends and twists. All levels are welcome.
