Luke spent the last two years in Taiwan, where he taught English, and improved his Yoga practice with a variety of international yogis. He’s been practicing for five years, and last year completed his 200 hour certification through the Kripalu Institute -- a Hatha style founded by Swami Kripalu that stresses compassion and inclusiveness.
Luke lives in Poultney, and went to Green Mountain College. He spends most of his free time either outdoors or plopped down in front of a computer, working on his first novel. Besides yoga, he also enjoys swimming, weightlifting, running, hiking, and mountain biking -- which makes Vermont a great place to be!

Cristy grew up in Vermont in a small town up north. She loves the outdoors and all of the seasons. Cristy took up skiing when she met her husband Owen Murphy (she was told it wouldn’t work out for them if she didn’t at least try to ski)! Thankfully, Cristy loves to ski! She also loves to hike, bike ride and canoe with her boys. Cristy is an avid reader and likes to sing and dance.
Marnie discovered yoga in 2013. Finally, she felt at home in her body, and knew she had to share this gift. In 2014, she completed her 200 hour teacher training at Heritage Yoga School in Denver, Colorado. She immediately starting teaching to help others discover that what they have been searching for has been inside them all along.
Marnie believes that practicing self-love and honoring the body is of the highest importance. She encourages curiosity during her classes and experimentation to make the practice your own. Slow and steady is her favorite motto. Come to Marnie’s class to seek your own truth, calm your nervous system, and let go a little more.
In April of 2017, she moved to Rutland to enjoy the beauty of the Green Mountains. Outside of teaching and practicing yoga, Marnie spends her free time hiking, kayaking, camping, weight lifting, kickboxing, playing with her dog and cat, and putting together soulful soundscapes for her yoga classes.
