Regina Trailweaver has been practicing yoga for 30 years. Like
so many, she started with the practice of asana (postures,)
and was soon drawn to the more subtle aspects of yoga: the
cultivation of a non-reactive, non-judgmental state through
focusing the mind and breath and unifying the mind, heart, and
body.She began studying and teaching yoga and eventually
obtained her yoga teacher certification through Kripalu Center for
Yoga and Health. She is especially interested in calming the stress
response and activating the well being response. Her teaching
of asana and pranayama (breathing practices) is infused with her
passion for the deeper teachings of yoga and her commitment to
the mental, emotional, and physical well being of her students.
As Regina takes seriously the promise of yoga to be free from
suffering, her students often find themselves laughing during class
due to her light and playful spirit. Regina has studied extensively
with several Iyengar certified teachers and this is evidenced in her
attention to alignment and physiology. She recently completed a
500 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Janet Stone.
In addition to teaching yoga, Kate Greenleaf is a health coach,
massage therapist and aromatherapist. An examplar of healthy
living, Kate's approach is simple, gentle, and non-judgmental.
With her multiple areas of expertise, she brings a holistic perspective
to every health challenge. Kate has been practicing and teaching
yoga for decades, studying at Kripalu and Yoga Vermont and
obtaining her yoga teacher certification through the Lotus Yoga
Teacher Training Program. Lotus Yoga is pleased to host Kate
several times a year for workshops and series.
