Emily Burrows (Mindful Yoga)
pic1I took my first yoga class in college while I was recovering from a knee injury, and in my nearly 2 decades of practice, yoga has helped me make peace with my body and my whole self in deep and lasting ways. I teach body positive, mindful yoga, with a focus on self compassion and trusting yourself. You're encouraged to let go of being “good” at yoga and instead get curious about how your practice feels. My classes include space for questions and self-guided movement. You’re invited to laugh at yourself, close your eyes, and forget the notion that you have to be young, thin, and bend like a pretzel to practice yoga. Yoga is for your unique body!

I offer self care coaching, private yoga lessons, retreats, and workshops throughout the Triangle and online. Visit www.emilyburrows.com.

Kathleen Lezama (Pilates Mat)

pic2I am a Pilates Method Alliance® Certified Pilates Teacher and have been teaching mat classes since 2002. I originally started out in the fitness world teaching various forms of aerobics and resistance classes, but after discovering pilates, I fell in love with the method. Several years after earning a beginner and intermediate mat certification, I became pilates equipment certified. I am fortunate enough to be able to do what I love by teaching/training at the Duke Center for Living at Fearrington, and also in my home studio. I have 3 grown children and a soccer playing husband who is slowly warming up to the idea of pilates to help stay injury free…progress!

Cheryl Fenner Brown (Back Care Yoga)
pic3I found yoga in 2001 as a way to ease chronic back pain and became instantly enchanted by the subtle connections between the breath, body, mind, and emotions. Students appreciate my deeply educational approach to yoga and classes weave anatomy, philosophy, asana, mudra, chanting, pranayama and yoga nidra together for a well-rounded experience delivered with compassion and humor. I encourage each student to honor where they are in their bodies every time they step onto the mat so deep healing and transformation takes place. I currently specialize in working with people over 50, cancer patients, and those with structural injuries and ailments.

I blend both traditional Hatha teachings and alignment principles with subtle energy work and intuitive healing. I am certified as an E-RYT 500. As a yoga therapist with over 500 hours of individual client experience, I co-create home practices that meet the lifestyle needs of my wide variety of clients. I am also a published author with three Yoga Nidra CDs and a companion DVD to the cancer research available from my discography on www.yogacheryl.com.
Sandy Brady (MELT Foam Rolling)
pic4I ran across a description of a MELT class in 2014 when I was going through a difficult time; I was preparing to send a child to college while also serving as caretaker for a dying parent. So of course I was totally neglecting my own self-care. Intrigued by the idea of “hands-off bodywork” and captivated by the promise of “reducing chronic pain”, I signed up. The MELT techniques had a profound effect – not only by making me feel better physically, but also by improving my overall sense of well-being. After experiencing the changes in my own body, I felt compelled to learn to teach MELT so I could share it with others. I am a licensed massage therapist, so I am a firm believer in the efficacy of bodywork, but I am even more passionate about teaching people to do their own bodywork. The principles of MELT are grounded in the latest scientific understanding of how the human body works. So while I love to have fun in class, you’ll also find me working in explanations about the science of why and how MELT works. Learn more about MELT.
