  • Lea Pickard

    Lea began practicing yoga over 15 years ago during graduate school to help relieve stress…and immediately fell in love! Having studied health in her academic career, she was amazed at the transformational ability of yoga on both body and mind.  Her practice developed over the years with a focus on the balance of strength and flexibility that comes from combining posture and breath, and an awareness of living in the present moment. With a desire to deepen her practice, she embarked on teacher training and earned her RYT-200 in 2012. Through this training she gained a love of the playfulness of yoga and it’s ability to bring true joy to people’s lives.

     

    Lea’s classes combine her love of the benefits of yoga on the physical body with the ability to take powerful lessons off the mat and into the real world. Her instruction is designed to help people feel ease and comfort in their body in any type of posture. She loves to combine breath and movement to help students flow and release tension and stress—in particular in the neck, shoulders, and back.   Students inspire her to open her heart and mind every single day, which permeates into the themes she chooses to help focus her classes. These help students connect mind, body, and breath—all with a little laughter, fun, and theme-oriented, inspirational music.

  • Seena Haines

    Seena began her practice of yoga nearly two years ago inspired by a pharmacy colleague who recommended the practice as a source of providing stress relief. She instantly fell in love and felt the impact of the mind body connection created and deepened with continued practice. Other benefits quickly realized were core strengthening and stamina building providing benefits in other routine exercise and mindfulness practices. The M Theory community has become her  home that promotes self-love, self-acceptance and community engagement. Teaching yoga to others has become an extension of her teaching craft as a long-time pharmacist academician. Health is not just about what you’re eating or doing, it’s also about what you’re thinking, feeling and saying and the beauty of this practice nourishes your mind, body and soul.  Take time to make your soul happy! “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis.  This is the beauty of yoga!

  • Erica Bradshaw

    “The best things in life aren’t things” became my personal philosophy after the unexpected passing of my father. After his death; I coincidentally discovered yoga. I began practicing more frequently and really enjoyed the physical and mental changes that were happening to my body. My yoga practice allowed me to look within, and to discover myself – something that I had never reflected on before.

    My philosophy, “The best things in life aren’t things” then took a different meaning after the birth of my daughter, Chelsie, and strengthened even further after the birth of my second daughter, Ashlyn.

    I decided I was ready to become an instructor. I knew that because I work full time, and I am a mom; that I could motivate and inspire people to take time for themselves – to nurture and strengthen their body, mind, and soul.

    As an RYT200, my focus as an instructor is to challenge the strength of the body, and push those limits to the fullest, without over working what our bodies are capable of. My greatest pleasure comes from helping students see their fullest potential and gaining more confidence in their yoga practice.
