Melissa Otero

Melissa is a vinyasa yoga instructor and an award winning singer/songwriter with a passion for helping others. Yoga became an important part of her life in the year 2009 after a long battle with depression. Upon discovering yoga and its healing benefits, Melissa dove deep into the practice and finally decided to bring her new found love to others by going through a 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training in 2015. Melissa hopes to share her love for yoga and music in her classes and inspire others.

Magda Usarek-Witek

Magda was introduced to yoga by her father at age eight and has been going classes and kirtans ever since. She dove deeper into her practice in 2010 to find anxiety relief from the stresses and pressures of daily life. Once she found the benefits of bringing breath and movement into the body she could never look back.

Trained in Vinyasa yoga through Bhakti Barn 200 RYT training, Magda incorporates the playfulness of vinyasa and the mindfulness of alignment, breathwork, and many other styles including yin yoga and restorative. She enjoys the personal connection cultivated between the student and the teacher. In addition to the 200 RYT, Magda has taken several training workshops for Hands on Assists, backcare and scoliosis, and therapeutics in the classroom.

She is forever grateful to the gurus and friends in her yoga community. When Magda isn't teaching or practicing yoga, she can be found working as an environmental specialist, on her bike, hiking, or traveling and enjoying the simple moments. You can expect some good tunes, a fun practice, yoga philosophy, and laughter in her class.
