Pre-Natal Yoga Instructor
Stacia's mission is to inspire others to move inward. She believes in fostering deep connections and that we are here to support each other as we travel the mystical paths of life. Her experience with yoga started at age 17 when she was rehabilitating amidst her athletic career post injuries and knee surgeries. Then yoga went even deeper and saved her when effects of chronic anxiety and depression set in during college into adulthood. She was called to share her experiential knowledge and began training and teaching yoga at age 23. She is authentic, soulful, and willing to be vulnerable so you too can live openly, that is, live without pretense. Each of her classes is unique, cohesive and fulfilling in that the experience always leaves you feeling that you’ve gone safely to a place that you did not think was possible. She continues to grow daily in her enthusiasm with over 10 years of teaching and deepen her knowledge for the traditions of yoga, study of movement and breath, and science and psychology of healing. Now in her beautiful chapter of pregnancy she is offering movement classes that support mama’s through the transitions of each trimester as their body’s and baby’s change. Mama’s need to stay empowered and connected to their strength at this time and she will support you through that. Stay tuned for more unique offerings from her.
Amanda started her ballet training at age 3 and began dancing professionally at age 19 with companies such as BalletFleming, Pennsylvania Ballet (now Philadelphia Ballet) and Brandywine Ballet. All throughout her dancing career Amanda also enjoyed cross-training and learning
about other ways to improve her technique and physical fitness. She graduated from University of the Arts with a BFA in Ballet Performance, where she also took college level courses in Pilates
and Yoga. She holds a Corrective Exercise Specialist certification from the BioMechanics Method and has completed courses from Balanced Body. Amanda loves finding new ways to
challenge the body, while making sure everyone leaves class feeling strong and healthy. She has been teaching group fitness for 5 years.
Madeline started dancing ballet at age 4, and continued seriously through high school. Between college and young professional life in New York City, she discovered a love for other forms of dance, including Hip Hop and Jazz. Dance started to become more about having FUN, and releasing stress. It also gave her a confidence boost, and allowed her to explore a side of herself no one had seen. Since moving to Portland, Maine, in 2019, Madeline has wanted to choreograph and teach dance as a way to empower people (but of course, COVID hit pause on that goal). Now she’s here to pick up where she left off! Her classes have a fun and flirty energy that will (hopefully) leave you feeling yourself in a new light. When not working at her job in Advertising, or dancing around her kitchen, you can find her photographing people, learning the guitar, and exploring new spots in her beloved home state of Maine.
