Julie Alter

Describe yourself in three words: Kind, hopeful, happy.

Why do you teach yoga? It's not about looking a certain way but yoga is about tapping into the essence of who you really are. I teach to continue to learn. The more I practice and learn the more I lean toward prioritizing "Being" practices that focus on meditation, pranayama, Yoga Nidra, restorative yoga and feeling balanced on and off the mat.

What inspires you? Beauty and being outside in Nature inspires me. The simple beauty and perfection in a flower or watching birds at my feeders.

 

Julie believes yoga is for everyone.  It is her mission to honor and embrace each student's search for self awareness.  Julie's aim is to teach with compassion, love and a sense of humor.  Find your inward feeling and outward spreading of joy in each individual accomplishment through yoga and interactions out in the world.

Susan Mondi

Describe yourself in three words: Fun, inquisitive, clairvoyant
Why do you teach Yoga?
It keeps me present and young at heart. No other job in the world requires me to consciously breathe all day long.
What inspires you?
Children, anyone who asks questions 
Where did you get your training/certifications?
I have several certifications and have attended yoga workshops and trainings in all different styles since 1987. The biggest influence on my skill as a teacher has been from teaching yoga to thousands of students over the last 13 years at Thrive. My style is derived from the yoga tools that are the most effective and most pleasurable ways to live a conscious, healthy and loving life.
Studio owner; Susan has lived a healthy lifestyle for more than 30 years. Yoga Training Director and an E-RYT500, Susan has studied various yoga styles and practices for more than 25 years, including Baptiste Power Vinyasa, ISHTA, Kundalini, Yin, Restorative, Prenatal, Yoga Nidra and Therapeutic Yoga. Susan's classes  are sequenced uniquely to inspire strength, flexibility and conscious awareness. Expect your yoga practice to surprise you.

Maureen McAllister

Describe yourself in three words: Adventurous, Playful, Empathetic
Why do you teach Yoga? Yoga came to me at a low point in my life, picked me up, brushed me off, and taught me how to see the light in myself and others again. I hope to impart this healing energy and practice to others, so that they too can don their rose-tinted glasses.
Something surprising about you: My greatest dream is to become an astronaut, even though I’m terrified of heights.
What inspires you? Music, art, philosophy, poetry, literature, science, nature, astronomy, the ocean, great acts of love, the human experience, everything to some extent.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Scuba diving with great white sharks… outside of the cage!
Where did you get your training/certifications? I will be receiving my 200-hr certification from Thrive Yoga in December of 2016 and am certified in Reiki I & II.
 
Maureen loves to use her science and psychology background to enhance the more esoteric components of yogic practice. Everyone is given the freedom to explore their individual inner and outer worlds on the mat, while enjoying a peaceful community atmosphere in a safe space. Classes feature unique and creative sequences with focus upon the breath and meditation to promote stress relief, balance, and tranquility in mind, body, and spirit.
A well-rounded yoga class exploring postures (asanas), breathing exercises, and energy balance (pranayama). Classes include training in: pose alignment, relaxation techniques, concentration, and meditation. Expect to improve your overall sense of well-being.
