Jenn Swaine :

Jenn Swaine

While Jenn has been practicing yoga on-and-off for about five years, she fell in love with the beauty of caring for your body and soul through asana and meditation last summer in a cow field at an off-grid camp in the middle of Kentucky. There she discovered the power of both movement and stillness to help herself heal during a time of loss and grief. Jenn came home knowing that she needed to create a space for others to have their own experience and immediately enrolled in Red Lila School of Yoga in Baltimore, Maryland. Studying under Lindsay Lusignea and Kate Manchester, she developed the tools to create space for others while also challenging them to strengthen their mind-body connection.

Jaclyn Lang :

Jaclyn Lang

Jaclyn began practicing Yoga while finishing her Exercise Science degree at Salisbury University. At the time, her goal was to increase focus and flexibility, while balancing certain problem areas of her body that resulted from playing elite collegiate soccer. The practice of asana opened Jaclyn’s curiosity into mind-body connection, pranayama, and self care.

During her profound studies at Hari Om Yoga School in Costa Rica with Massimo Monti and Jun Lee overlooking the Caribbean, Jaclyn discovered how to embrace pure life in her teachings, enlivening the muscles and supporting the fascinating anatomical structure. Jaclyn is passionate through authentic living, holistic nourishment, simplicity, and exploration. Her Vinyasa classes reflect this as she aims to lead you through a dynamic sequence, focusing on alignment to reveal inner strength and cultivating peaceful awareness.

Mary Gellen :

Mary Gellen

A local to the Eastern Shore, Mary Gellen spent the last 3 years being guided by dreams, circumstance, and synchronism around the country to different spiritual teachers.
She spent many months training with the Sivananda yoga lineage at an ashram and recently received her 200hr RYT with Sri Dharma Mittra in Manhattan.
Naturally inclined to psychic exploration, Mary’s major loves and teachers are meditation and yoga nidra. She discovered that with ashtanga yoga as her backbone, a sonic meditation practice was the most inclusive of people at any level of experience or interest. Music and sound have proved to be some of the strongest healing allies on her path and have lead her to teachers all over the country. Mary’s practice is always expanding as new information is “downloaded” and integrated into being. Tapping into her own roots in sound has opened up an ability to listen deeply, a quality she hopes to help open in others. Healing, mastery, and realization of the Self are all compounded with the cultivation of deep listening.

Heather Mir :

Heather Mir

Heather Mir, 200 hour Certified and Licensed Ashaya Yoga® Teacher, took her first yoga class in the late 90s and absolutely fell in love. There was something so empowering about syncing breath with body movement that was unlike any other form of exercise she had experienced before. Her initial exposure was through books, dvds, and cable network programs and eventually expanded to local community outlets. Over the next dozen or so years she maintained her personal practice as she pursued a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Accounting and then embarked on her professional accounting career. In 2015, she realized she wanted to deepen her personal practice and share her love of yoga with others. Her 200 hour Ashaya Yoga® teacher training with Todd Norian, founder of Ashaya Yoga®, provided her with the guidance for her personal practice as well as the structure required to guide students mindfully. Ashaya Yoga® is an alignment based method that teaches you how to return to your heart and to your true nature.
