Hatha Flow


This class is taught by:

Kim LeClaire

RYT 200
 
Kim’s journey into the healing benefits of yoga began with a simple gesture at the end of a yoga class led by Libby Yokum; a soft lavender pillow placed on her forehead. It was the beginning of learning how to relax, be gentle, be present, and harness the unique ability to love ourselves completely.

 

Kim began studying and building an understanding of yoga after graduating from Plattsburgh State University with a BA in photography and ceramics. For the last 10 years she has studied alongside teachers and students at Funky Door Yoga, Laughing Lotus, ADK Yoga, Dharma Door Retreat Center and at Laughing River Yoga. In April of 2015 she completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Laughing River Yoga, where she studied along side Emily Garrett and Sofi Dillof. Kim feels that this training left no stone unturned and has given her the tools to help people connect and reconnect, emotionally, spiritually, and physically to life.

 

Kim brings a wide variety of experience to the practice of yoga. She has studied dance for 23 years at Langlois Racine Dance School and has a diverse background in dance including tap, jazz, and ballet. Alongside her love and study of movement, she also has a musical background including proficiency in piano, song, drum and percussion. Through the discipline of music and movement of the body, she has found confidence, experienced less physical pain, and discovered how to express herself fully in the world.

 

Kim continually trusts yoga’s ability to heal as it has helped her work through many situations in her own life. She is grateful to have the opportunity to share her knowledge, talents, and personal life experience with others through the practice of yoga.

 

Maureen Marcellus

CYT 200
Maureen has been a yoga practitioner since her early years. Her yoga journey began with her Grandmother who taught her yoga at the age of 10. She first learned sun salutations and shoulder stand as well as how to meditate. Maureen found that meditation helped to relieve childhood anxiety issues and helped her to sleep.
 
Maureen continued to explore yoga, dabbling in various styles and practices in her teens and early adult life. In her 30’s, Maureen turned toward a more spiritual practice with transcendental meditation. By her 40’s, she was facilitating a Buddhist meditation group with friends at the UU Church here in Plattsburgh, NY.
 
As her life continued to evolve she found that as she neared 50 her metabolism changed. It became necessary for her to turn to a more physical practice again. However, the gym and playing sports did not appeal to her, so she turned her focus back to yoga. No matter the types and styles she tried, nothing seemed like it would stick for her and be something she could incorporate daily into her life. Until she found Kundalini Yoga! She has been an avid practitioner ever since. Finding it to be a perfect balance between the physical practice her body needs, the spiritual practice that her spirit craves, and the meditation practice that she has enjoyed since she was 10.

Maureen recently graduated from the 200 hr. Yoga Alliance program at Trinity Yoga taught by Ravi Singh & Ana Brett. Four years after discovering Kundalini Yoga, she is excited to be a teacher of this amazing technology and share its myriad of benefits with others.
