Andrea Beckley

Andrea’s passion for Health & Wellness, was further catalyzed with her first yoga class. It was love at first pose (& breath), and imbued with an ongoing continuum of something new, learned everyday! The Spacious Freedom that arrives seamlessly, when on the mat, and carried within when off the mat … just seemed as natural & rhythmic as breathing and has become embraced as a natural way of life and living. Andrea teaches from her heart, with a gentle supportive style, in which to guide and assist you in tapping further & deeper into your own experience, discoveries & integrations.

Bonnie Bakula

Bonnie started yoga at the age of 50, as she saw her “empty nest” years approach. She was hooked from the beginning, slowly evolving from a pure physical workout (no savasana) to an emotional, mental and spiritual practice of transformation. Finally, at the age of 55, she pursued her yoga teacher training. She’s always enjoyed sharing and gaining knowledge with her students. There is such a sense of joy when one guides individuals to their own discoveries. She sees herself as an aid to help others explore and develop their own beings.
