Carol’s yogic journey began more than 15 years ago and has grown into a true passion.  While she is a Registered Yoga Alliance RYT and Certified YogaKids teacher CYKT, she still considers herself a student at heart, as there is always something more to learn from yoga.  Yoga and meditation have taught her how to be humble, grateful and mindful as well as connected to the spirit that lies within.  She has learned that yoga is a process which allows one to experience life with a conscious awareness, growing and manifesting along the way. Yoga has given her the tools to meet life on life’s terms and focus on the present moment. Carol loves to be creative and has a true compassion for people.

          Ginger Solomon
Ginger began practicing yoga in 2008 during a very stressful time in her life.  She wanted to learn if yoga could quiet her mind and the many thoughts that swirled around if only for that hour.  She also wanted to supplement her existing fitness regimen of cycling and weight training.  Through the practice of Vinyasa Flow yoga, Ginger became aware of the importance of linking her breath and movement together, the cornerstone of yoga, which translated literally means “to join”.  Ginger took the lessons she learned on her mat during her Yoga practice to off the mat and in to her private life. She learned how to live a more harmonious and joyful life through yoga.
 
Ginger completed her most recent training program at Yogasphere in early 2012 and is a certified yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance.  Ginger’s passion is in teaching new students to yoga the basics of a yoga practice including meditation techniques, chanting, pranayama (breath control) and asanas (poses).  She focuses on the importance of the proper alignment of poses to protect the student while also increasing their strength and flexibility.
 
Ginger lives in Washington Crossing with her husband, Ben, and has a blended family of three children, her son Adam and stepdaughters, Meghan and Sarah.  She enjoys spending time with her family on sailing vacations, tending to her flower gardens and walking her yellow Labrador, Buddy. Namaste!

                                          journey.

                                                           Lynn Cohen
Lynn began practicing yoga 13 years ago and became a teacher in the summer of 2010. Many people believe that miracles happen instantaneously, and sometimes they do. But yoga allows you to enjoy the journey and to experience the miracles that are happening everyday in our lives on a moment to moment basis.  Since beginning her practice 13 years ago, Lynn has seen her life open up. Yoga was a major contributor in helping her heal from her herniated disc, gave her the confidence to public speak, keeps her flexible and strong, gives her energy, opens doors to deeper parts of herself, inspires her to try new things and has taken her avid meditation practice of 20 years to new heights. A regular yoga practice has the power to unleash any dormant inner capacity we may have and to bring it forth into our lives and into the world.
 
As an executive coach and trainer, yoga compliments her already existing toolbox as more and more organizations realize the stress reducing and healing benefits of yoga. Lynn loves to hike in nature with her dog Valentino, journal, juice, read, write, ride motorcycles, travel and spend time with her family.  She makes every effort to give her classes an enjoyable experience!
