Yoga and Meditation


This class is taught by:

Kate Waterfall

Kate was introduced to yoga at Blue Heron in 2007, studying for several years with Elizabeth Cosgrove, Claudia Neuman, Carrie Ganz and Ashley Litecky among others. After taking a break in 2010 with the birth of her son John, Kate returned to the practice in 2011, continuing her and earning her RYT 200 certificate at the Mount Mandara School of Yoga in 2013-14. Kate’s teaching honors the classical Hatha yoga practice with a strong emphasis on physical alignment principles and therapeutics weaving yogic philosophy, eastern mythology and modern astrology into the class to inspire her students to go deeper into a more moving practice.

Francine Brungardt

Francine’s independent and intuitive yogic studies began over thirty years ago. First practicing with Lilias Folan via the rabbit-eared black and white t.v. screen on top of a dresser in her parent’s bedroom, she’s followed her heart through various paths and lessons ever since. Her roots stand firmly in the Hatha tradition and her primary influences from the alignment based branches of yoga continue to inform and inspire her.

Francine's Clients Say:
"It was my first time attending a prenatal yoga class (at 20 pregnant) and I left feeling so inspired! Francine is wonderful and let's you do everything at your pace and comfort level. I came in with back pain and left feeling no pain and excited about attending the next class!" Nadia J, 7/2016

"Very relaxing and friendly environment. The receptionist was very welcoming. I did pre-natal yoga. The teacher, Francine, was really nice to put me at ease since it was my first time. She also provided good advices during the lesson to do postures at the very best and after she recommended other courses I can attend in my conditions. I think it is a very good investment for yourself and I think I will also try the many other services they offer!" Francesca B., 10/15

"Francine is such a nurturing guide for all of the mamas in her pre and post natal class. She gently encourages women to stretch and build strength for their changing bodies while honoring the new life building within. She takes the time to get to know individual students and provides emotional as well as physical support. I recommend this class to all mamas!" Annie N. 11/2015
