Charlene Pratt  Charlene began practicing Hatha yoga and meditation in 2008 as a means for self-acceptance and Empowerment. Over the years, her asana practice has transformed her physical body (from a girl who couldn’t touch her toes or hold a plank to a woman who ... well, you’ll see). But more, yoga has transformed her anxious, self-deprecating, and depressive mental habits and has brought her peace, direction, and a sense of self-worth and belonging. Since receiving her original certification in Westerly, RI in 2014, Charlene has continued her yoga education in RI as well as both Hawai’i and Japan; and she will forever remain a student of yoga. Take Charlene’s classes to experience her loving compassion and uncover your own power.

Julie Shore  Julie teaches yoga to share what the practice brought into her own life, namely a means of connecting to her capacity for resilience, inner wisdom and joy. A Southern California native, she has called Providence home since 2009. Yoga has been a part of Julie’s life since childhood both in and out of school. She audited her first teacher training her senior year of high school and returned to a serious study of the practice after graduating from Bard College in 2008. She has been teaching yoga in Providence professionally since 2012, in environments ranging from yoga studios, gyms, school and even the occasional backyard. If you see her biking around the city she is probably on her way to class.  Her classes translate a technical knowledge of asana practice with strong focus on anatomy and alignment. Embedded within this focus are the underpinnings of yogic philosophy which point to developing mindfulness and compassionate awareness. Forever a student, she is always looking for ways to hone and develop her understanding of the human body/ experience and to relate that understanding to the people who practice with her. Julie teaches from her direct experience of yoga as an inclusive, energizing and empowering practice.
