Katherine received her 200 hour teacher certification in 2007 with Mimi Loureiro at O2 Yoga (www.o2yoga.com) in Somerville, MA. Prior to 2007, she began practicing yoga to achieve purely physical goals- not expecting the practice to become such a central and integral part of her life. Yoga has brought a sense of balance, peace and mindfulness not only on her mat, but in her personal and corporate life. Katherine’s teaching style and training uses many principals of Astanga Yoga with a more creative and less predictable vinyasa-flow format. A native of Plainfield, VT, Katherine is excited to be back home and looks forward to continuing to give to students the joy and passion of yoga that she has received from so many knowledgeable, wonderful and supportive teachers.
Allie Bauer has been studying and practicing in the healing arts for over 30 years. She discovered John Barnes' approach to MFR in 2008, and hasn't looked back. One of her greatest loves is helping people heal their lives.
Fascinated by the connection of breath and movement, alignment and balance, Roseanne began to practice yoga in 1992 with local teachers in the central Vermont area. Yoga quickly became an important aspect of her life in finding strength, flexibility, and stress relief, and incorporating the concepts of alignment and breath with movement throughout daily living.
Being a special educator for the past 25 years, Roseanne needed movement and change, and sought out certification to teach yoga through Burlington Yoga and completed her 200-hour teacher training in May, 2016 with Piper/Candra Prabha and is certified with Yoga Alliance. She continues to practice with Candra and other teachers in the area. Roseanne seeks to link the benefits of yoga to the field of mental health. Living in Plainfield with her family, she is also a passionate homesteader.
Her goal in teaching is to share the benefits of bringing yoga into daily motion, while developing balance, peace, and a sense of calm in a strong body both individually and globally.
In Roseanne’s classes, you will experience a light-hearted hatha yoga flow with elements of aromatherapy and music.
I was born and raised in Africa (Dem. Rep. Congo) and at 11 years old, I moved to Portugal (where I am originally from). That gave me a perspective of the world’s differences and similarities in first hand. This was further explored when after 2003, I began traveling and living in South, Central and North America, therefore learning and experiencing different cultures that opened my mind and heart to new approaches towards Life.
While attending architectural studies in college, I started seeking a practice that could help me reduce stress and empower my confidence. During the year of 2000, I found Yoga through friends. I completed my Yoga Certificate from the Universidade Internacional de Yoga in Porto, Portugal in 2001 and have been practicing and teaching Yoga since then.
Flexibility and adaptability are the attitudes I bring to my “Be Yoga” class. The classes I teach focuses on breathing and cleansing exercises, physical poses, relaxation and meditation techniques. Hand gestures, gratefulness and healing sounds (Mantra) are the extra exercises that beautify the practice and empower the student to gain full awareness of oneself, of others and of the surroundings.

Julie's teaching style emerges from the health philosophy that she believes in: connection to both inner and outer nature, mindfulness coupled with compassion and gentleness, and the revealing of our innate dignity and integrity. Julie holds in heart that within each individual there is a seed of goodness, unable to be scarified, and is awaiting the waters of attention and care to blossom.
Julie began practicing yoga as a young teen and received a 200hr YTT through Kripalu in 2010. Since then she has studied with various teachers, sat and served multiple Vipassana courses, spent time in workshops at Karme-Choling and Shambhala centers, and participated twice in The Event Training. All the while she nurtures her daily practice of both movement and mindfulness. She has seen through her personal work the real changes taking place in her life: from self-deprivation towards more self-love; from self-pity towards greater self-worth, and from judgment towards acceptance. And still, she feels like she is at the tip of a very deep iceberg of potential.
Julie has studied bodywork at Lotus Palm and participated in various herbalism apprenticeships throughout the United States. She is currently a clinical intern in the Year 3 program at Vermont Center of Integrative Herbalism. Julie has coupled with studios nationally and internationally, and recently founded Medicinal Changes where she offers Thai Yoga Bodywork, Meditation guidance, herbal consultations, and Reiki. Her classes range from gentle and restorative, to vinyasa and flow. Either way her aim is just the same: focus on breathe while the body takes different shapes to access the place deep within that is spacious, open and unchanged. She also intends deeply that the classes are available to all; whether they have done movement or meditation before or are new to such practices. Everybody is welcomed.
