Alicia Karen Thomas Currently I teach Yoga at the Provincetown Gym. Judging by the people in these classes, its either slow flow and meditative, or power flow. During powerflow classes, I always show modifications so that even the beginner can use their own pace and ability to stay present during the practice. I also teach Chair Yoga, at Seashore Point in Provincetown, great for EVERY-BODY. I have folks who bring their children and teenage grandchildren. These classes really are amazing. We envoke our grace,our breath,and our power, all from the comfort,and support of a chair. Again judging by the people in the class, we even do some standing stretches, and there are ALWAYS modifications, so everybody stays together in their own way. I also am available for house calls. Whether it a private, one on one, or invite family and friends and make it a private yoga party! I travel to you, and i prepare a class suited for the needs and abilities of those who’ll be present. I provide mats, blocks, straps or blankets if you need. http://www.kindyoga.com/~Alicia.htm

Alanna Hernandez, RYT: Began with teaching yoga to the students at Sturgis Charter Public School, Hyannis MA. While still in Kind Yoga training, I did my final project working with a group of girls from Sturgis Charter Public High School. I taught a four week series for them supporting self-esteem and positive body image. I really enjoyed it and wanted to extend it to the full school, so I wrote a proposal, and happily, the school accepted it! Eventually I was teaching yoga to all the kids of the Sturgis East Campus, focusing on empowerment, stress-reduction, and health.
Alanna aims to teach honest and unpretentious classes that help her students reach their full potential. Because yoga was such a positive influence in her life as a teenager, she is passionate about sharing yoga with teens today. http://www.youarewhatyouyoga.com/
