Emily Brouillet

Emily first came to yoga in 2010 looking to improve flexibility and strength, but soon found that yoga provided her with much more than physical benefits. Practicing yoga allowed her to feel more centered and focused throughout the day. Emily received her Classical Yoga RYT-200hr certification in September 2017 from YogaLife. She is also a dance teacher at Unbound Dance Academy, teaching various disciplines to children ranging from 2 to 12 years old. She has recently completed the Kids Yoga Teacher Training program through ChildLight Yoga and is in the final stages of her certification process. She believes that a strong connection between the mind and body is fundamental to self-discovery and personal growth. Yoga has helped her own personal growth tremendously and so she is excited to share the many benefits of a yoga practice through her teaching.

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.

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.

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.
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.
