Jillian Sommer, RYT200, Certified Yoga Teacher
I started Water's Edge Yoga in 2018 with the mission to make yoga accessible to all and making the practice of yoga part of everyone's life. After practicing yoga myself for many years, I discovered that sharing that practice was what I really wanted to do. This practice has helped me become a more grounded and compassionate human being and has helped me be a better parent, wife, friend and person. I am certified to teach children, teen, adult and pre and postnatal yoga. When I am not teaching yoga I enjoy spending time with my family roller blading, watching movies and enjoying the outside.
Amy Orsini, RYT200, Certified Yoga & Meditation Teacher
I am a mom of 3 grown children. I have been practicing yoga for over 7 years. I found that it made me feel so good inside and out. My body and my spirit were ignited. I wanted to dig deeper into the teachings of the yoga philosophy and that is why I decided to take a year-long opportunity to join yoga teacher training at Universal Power Yoga. At the conclusion I decided to dig deeper and so I took a teacher training in meditation.i found my passion and truly enjoy sharing these gifts. I want to help people realize their true potential and feel their best. I love teaching beginners and welcoming them into the yoga and meditation practices. All of my classes are all levels so I offer a variety of modifications and variations. When I am not practicing yoga , I enjoy hiking with my beagle and skiing with my husband and kids.
Debbie Burke, RYT200, Certified Yoga Teacher
We all come together on our yoga mat for different reasons. Some to take a break from stress, others to connect with a community of like-minded people and many to simply stretch and grow stronger. The beauty of our yoga practice is it changes each day and evolves over time as we need it to. When I joined a studio 7 years ago, it was to become leaner and more flexible. I was amazed at the transformation in me both on and off the mat. Through breath and movement, yoga helps us to find strength, awareness and often a more calm and balanced life. It has been life changing for me. My hope is to give you the
opportunity to explore what you need in a challenging, but safe and inclusive yoga class. All levels are welcome. Come join me on your mat!
Barbara Kates, RYT200 Certified Yoga and Meditation Teacher
I have been practicing yoga for 15 years and have integrated yoga and meditation into my life. Balancing these two practices have allowed me to stay present, resilient and healthy! The health benefits have been proven to me time again.
My favorite moments in class are the beginning when the breath takes over and students drop their shoulders and the end when a shift is felt through out the room.
I invite you to experience the mental and physical benefits of yoga with me at Water’s Edge.
