“Yearning is a part of the beginning of anybody’s practice. You have to yearn to grow. You can’t want it one day, but not the next, and expect to make any real progress. You have to begin with some steady, inner hunger”.

Clare
Din

Clare began her yoga journey at the age of 11 when one of her gym teachers incorporated Shoulders Stand into her weekly gym classes. Encouraged to embrace a life of academics and teaching at the high school and university level, it took many years to eventually come full circle and embrace what she learned so long ago. Once she started Bikram Yoga, she started a daily routine of six days a week, just as Bikram Choudhury prescribed. Crediting Sandy Robins and Noelle Burgoyne as her primary mentors, she earned her teaching certification in the spring of 2015 and has been teaching ever since. In the summer of 2015 she earned her second teaching certification in Yin Yoga. In addition to yoga, she also has experience training in running, weightlifting and Kung-Fu. Clare is currently pursuing a deeper understanding of the martial art Aikido, which she feels is strongly connected to yoga.

Conboy

Kelly completed her 200hr teacher training in May of 2017 at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia with Diana and John Vitarelli and is certified in Ashtanga vinyasa and yin yoga. She incorporates both elements into her teaching style with a focus on both asana (physical practice) and pranayama (breath). Her classes are taught in a flow style that seeks to unify both breath and movement in order to bring peace to the practitioner. Whether it is your first class or thousandth class, Kelly’s class will allow you to meet and challenge yourself exactly where you are. Outside of the studio, Kelly is a middle school teacher and is currently working on her doctorate to discover how yogic theory can influence education. She has found that her love for yoga has enhanced her other passions, such as weight lifting and hiking, and hopes to encourage others of all backgrounds to do the same.
