Unfortunately, Pat will be out of commission for a few months in order to heal from back surgery. We will greatly miss her during this time and hope that she has a speedy recovery!

Fortunately, Ginny came into our lives at the right moment! She will be temporarily taking over the 5:30pm Wednesday night beginner class!

If you haven't had a chance to practice with Ginny, please be sure to stop in and take her class. She is truly a gifted and amazing teacher! We are SO lucky the universe sent her our way!

Thank you Lora!

"Some people comes into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same." ~Flavia WeednLora Twist

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Lora. Lora has taught at Serenity Yoga for over 2 years and has been a huge part of the Serenity community. Besides her weekly classes, Lora has inspired us to meditate more, go deeper into the philosophy of yoga, participate in the 2014 Yoga Reaches Out Yogathon, practice Yin Yoga and become part of something bigger than us.

Starting late winter, Lora will be moving to Martha's Vineyard to take a teaching position at ONE Hot Yoga. Although we are extremely sad to see he go, we are so very proud of her and what may come in the next chapter of her life!

On a personal note, I want to say a special thanks to Lora for all that she has done for me these past few years. I have learned so much from her and have leaned on her for many business decisions. I am so grateful that she has been a teacher at Serenity and a wonderful friend. I will miss her dearly.

Her last classes at Serenity will be:

Last Thursday class: January 22nd
Last Tuesday classes: February 24th

Please join me in welcoming Kim Kolbjornsen to the Serenity Community! Kim

Kim will be teaching the Tuesday night 5:45pm Intermediate/Advanced Vinyasa class starting March 3rd!

Kim first stepped onto a yoga mat in 2006. She ventured into her first yoga class looking for a new form of exercise but found so much more. Exploring a new world of challenging yoga posses quickly produced noticeable changes. Her muscles strengthened and her balance and flexibility improved. She noticed an increase in both energy level and confidence in her physical abilities. However, the surprise and true inspiration to delve deeper into her practice came from the unexpected benefits yoga brought to her mind and spirit. The physical flow of yoga didn’t just strengthen her body -- it transformed her outlook. The more she practiced, the more she noticed less reactivity, more focus, and a greater degree of self-acceptance. Wow! This power of yoga to transform one’s life was something she wanted to share with others.

In 2009 she completed Level 1 Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste, and in 2012 received a 200-hour Teacher Training Certification from Shiva Shakti Power Vinyasa Yoga.

Kim strives to teach a fun and invigorating power vinyasa flow to systematically work all muscle groups. She offers students a chance to challenge themselves, while empowering them to grow through exploring their yoga practice at their own pace.

We join me in welcoming Kim to the Serenity Community!
