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.
