Moderate Yoga

This class is taught by:

Linda Abt

My love for yoga began over thirty years ago. While the level of commitment to my practice varied over the years my belief in the benefits of yoga has never wavered.

In 2012 I began teaching after completing my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. Since that time I have completed advanced training certificates in Yin Yoga, Meditation, Applied Yoga Anatomy and Restorative Yoga. I have studied under teachers such as Josh Summers, Doug Keller, Marlysa Sullivan, Yoganand Michael Carroll and Jason Crandell. I will begin work toward my Registered Yoga Teacher-500 Hour Level in the summer of 2017 through Daniel Oralansky in Arlington Massachusetts.

I welcome you to join me on the mat regardless of your age or physical ability. Yoga is for everyone and the beauty of yoga is that it will meet you where you are. Namaste.

Caroline O'Dwyer

Caroline O’Dwyer has been practicing and studying yoga since 2003, and certified to teach since 2010. Her background includes a wide variety of styles including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Jivamukti, Anusara and Restorative yoga. She began her studies with Lauren Lanham at Yoga for Everybody in Fairfield, Connecticut, when she was just 15 years old. Over the next 5 years, she frequented master classes and workshops with senior teachers in and around New York City, including Dharma Mittra, Sharon Gannon and David Life, Bryan Kest, Siva Rea, and Mitchel Bleier. In 2008 Caroline moved to Paris, France to study abroad for over a year during her undergraduate program at UConn. While in Paris, she studied at Rasa Yoga Rive Gauche, and participated in an apprenticeship program in Ashtanga Yoga practices with Charles Bensusen, and also studied intensively with Mika de Brito, whose unique approach to vinyasa sequencing greatly enriched her experience.

She returned to the United States at the end of 2009, and completed a 200-hour teacher training program at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, California, with its founders, Ganga White and Tracey Rich in the summer of 2010. After completing her undergrad, Caroline moved to Rochester NY, where she earned her Master’s Degree at the Eastman School of Music, and studied Iyengar yoga with Francois Raoult at Open Sky Yoga. His expertise in alignment and anatomy, as well as pranayama and meditation has deeply influenced Caroline’s teaching to this day.

Currently, Caroline is pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Voice and Opera at the University of Connecticut, and has been teaching group and private classes at Storrs Yoga Center since she moved to the area in 2013. All of Caroline’s classes are deeply informed by a strong foundation in human anatomy and proper posture alignment, as well as sensitivity and awareness of injuries, limitations in range of motion, and experience of each student at every age and level of practice.

Susan Barlow

Teaching yoga lets me share the benefits that I receive from yoga—relaxation, challenge, mobility, self-observation, self-improvement, and meeting others interested in the philosophical and health benefits of yoga.

I started practicing yoga in the 1970s. In 2017 I completed the 200-hour teacher training at Samadhi yoga in Manchester, and teach there as well as at other local studios. I have taught tai chi since 2008.

My goal as a yoga teacher is to bring yoga to everyone who is willing to give it a try! May I share my appreciation for yoga with you?

Suzanne Hathaway

The first time I fell in love with yoga was in Kindergarten. My teacher, Mr. Wielgorecki, led our class in practice each day before rest time. It made my heart sing, connecting me to something deeper than myself that I didn’t understand. When I rediscovered yoga in my mid-twenties, it felt like I stepped into a forgotten part of myself that I’d known forever. A number of years later, I fulfilled my dream of becoming a RYT 200 certified yoga teacher through Samadhi Yoga Studio in Manchester, Connecticut. I'm currently studying for my advanced level yoga teacher training. My goal is to foster a welcoming, safe and nurturing environment for people to explore and develop their yoga. My classes focus on alignment and sequencing meant to open, strengthen, lengthen and heal. I look forward to sharing my love of yoga with you!

This practice is a bridge between gentle and vigorous yoga, and explores a variety of foundational poses (standing, seated, and on the floor) and breathing exercises. It provides a low-key workout and deep restoration.
