Sandi Powers

Melissa B. Borthwick

Melissa received a 200-hour certification from YogaWorks.  She began practicing yoga in Tennessee in the late 90s. Initially drawn to the athleticism of yoga, Melissa's practice was strictly a physical one until the birth of her daughter in 2010. The new physical limitations she then experienced sparked the beginning of an interest in the deeper aspects of yoga, and now she loves both the physical challenge on the mat and the peace that extends beyond it. Melissa is excited to have you join her for a fun practice that will leave you smiling and with a full heart.

Dee Langford

Dee was introduced to and fell in love with Yoga in college. Over the years, she always came back to the practice of Yoga to reconnect with body, mind, and spirit in both good and challenging times. She earned her YogaWorks 200 hour certification in 2015 here at YogaBalance. She has been teaching Yoga for Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Manchester for more than a year as part of an employee wellness program. Dee also teaches a weekly class for the Granite YMCA. She is excited and grateful to bring her lifelong love of Yoga to students at YogaBalance.

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.

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.
Perfect for beginners or experienced students who want a slower paced, less strenuous class. In this class, we focus on stretching postures, gentle flows and breathing techniques that release stress, reduce tension and promote relaxation through a calm, meditative approach to the practice. A wonderful class for students of all ages and for anyone that wants to slow down, learn to quiet their mind and be nurtured.
