This class is taught by:

Courtnay Meletta

TEACHER
Courtnay received her 200hr yoga teacher training at Kripalu in 2003. Since then she has been enjoying the healing wonders of the practice as a student and teacher, studying with inspired teachers all around the globe. A licensed mind-body psychotherapist and PhD candidate in mind-body medicine, Courtnay has a depth of knowledge on the emotional and psychological experiences of yoga as a healing system. She believes that we can utilize the incredible gift of yoga as a means towards limitless growth. Her goal is to provide an intelligent, challenging, and contemplative class (with humor!) where you will have the opportunity to drop in to the many layers of your experience, body, mind, and spirit.

JoEllen Hockenbrough

JoEllen is the owner of Providence Power Yoga and RYT 500 yoga teacher. Her very first yoga class was a Baptiste Power Vinyasa class. The feeling she had after class was a mix of joy, relief and a little anxiety. But she had found her home. JoEllen’s background is in Baptiste Yoga, having completed over 200 hours at Baptiste Level I and Level II, and The Art of Assisting. In 2014, she completed Theresa Murphy’s 500 hour Advanced Teacher Training which emphasized the subtle body and therapeutic yoga. JoEllen has attended numerous workshops and continuing education series including a seven week Yinyasa series led by Theresa Murphy. JoEllen’s classes could be described as alignment based vinyasa, and her teaching style is skillful, encouraging and supportive.

Noelle Curren

Noelle is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher. She came to her practice at 17, teaching herself postures and sequences from a yoga book, quickly developing a very strong, committed home practice. She fell in love with the intensity of holding the physical postures, the creativity of creating her own sequences and the freedom to explore; which eventually led her to teaching. Noelle attended the University of Rhode Island where she studied Kinesiology with a focus in exercise science. In 2013 she completed her Level 1 YogaFit certification and taught yoga at the Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center at the University of Rhode Island. She completed her teacher training at Raffa Yoga in December 2015. Noelle brings her playful spirit, humor, and love for yoga to her classes; as well as her strong background in anatomy and understanding of the body in motion. Noelle teaches from an authentic place with the intention of presenting yoga in a way that is accessible for everyone. Classes are mindfully taught to draw attention to alignment and towards cultivating strength. Noelle teaches creative sequences to the backdrop of carefully crafted playlists that compliment the progression of the class and enhance the overall experience.

Lauren Tracey

TEACHER
Lauren has been practicing yoga since college where she was able to take
classes to balance the stress of coursework. After college, Lauren found
the power of yoga helped to adjust her into a strong woman in the workforce
and decided she wanted to help other individuals find their inner power
both mentally and physically through the practice of yoga. She is
certified as a 200hr Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher with a focus on power vinyasa flow with highlights from Forrest, Baptiste, Hatha and
Iyengar. Lauren believes the best form of yoga to practice is one that
speaks to your soul and makes you come back week after week to refuel.

Steve Ferrara


Steve began practicing yoga in 2011 in an effort to find a new approach to personal fitness. The practice of yoga evolved into a daily part of his life. He feels as though the mental and spiritual benefits quickly began to overshadow the physical benefits. Through the practice, he developed a calmer, more compassionate self in addition to achieving a new level of physical fitness. This led to his decision to participate in a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Theresa Murphy. He began teaching shortly after completing the program in 2014.  Steve continues to seek out avenues to grow his personal practice and teaching style. His classes typically involve smooth, strong movements and focused attention to alignment and breath, allowing for his students to feel and explore into each posture.
Vinyasa is a popular style of yoga that seamlessly links breath with movement. It is often referred to as ‘flow yoga’ or ‘meditation in motion’ because of the smooth way in which the poses transition from one to another, almost like a dance. These classes will offer a challenging flow usually with longer holds but always with a focus on breath and movement. We will flow through fun, creative, and at times unexpected sequences that bring the breath along for the ride. We will leave plenty of room to refine alignment, experiment with variations, and get acquainted or reacquainted with the more subtle aspects of the practice.
All levels are welcome and supported! The room will be heated to approximately 90 degrees with a comfortable level of humidity.
