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.

Sonig Doran Schiller

Sonig has been practicing Vinyasa yoga since running injuries left her seeking an alternative outlet for stress, anxiety and physical strength and wellness. Yoga quickly became a regular practice and, years later, Sonig decided to pursue her 200 hour teacher training at a Live, Love, Teach affiliated studio. Sonig focuses on breath, flow, strength and creativity. She enjoys giving students physical and mental challenges as well as a reprieve from the ceaseless activities of daily life.

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.

Erica Douglass

After taking her first yoga class Erica was instantly hooked. The clarity and mindfulness along with a powerful workout kept her coming back for more, and ignited a passion in her to share this love for Yoga with others. Erica completed her 200-hour teacher training at Yoga One, a Live Love Teach affiliate studio. She loves the idea of Yoga as a practice where the learning never stops. Erica enjoys teaching classes where students are encouraged to go beyond what they think is possible so they leave feeling empowered, energized, and rejuvenated. She strives to create a class vibe where breath and flow combine to create a beautiful release of tension, stress and worry. Creative, challenging sequences help students get out of their heads and connect to body and mind.

 

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. Heated Power Vinyasa takes the traditional vinyasa series and incorporates a dynamic flow that detoxifies, heals and rejuvenates the body. It is a powerful, and transformational class that cultivates strength, endurance, focus, balance, and flexibility.
Instruction is based on alignment and breath. The teacher will offer challenges and refinements to more advanced students while providing structure and support for beginners. In a vinyasa class, your breath is synchronized with your movement and you will be cued to move from one pose to another on either an inhale or an exhale. Students have the opportunity to cultivate gratitude and independence in their yoga practice, while learning to integrate these tools into daily life.
