Alice Zorthian started taking yoga 22 years ago to alleviate pregnancy symptoms, and before she knew it, she was hooked! She has taught elementary school for years and brings her yoga practice into the classroom. She has practiced many different styles of yoga including power, anusara, and hatha. She received her 200-hour teacher certification in 2014 from Aura Fitness with Aura Garver and Ashleigh Beyer. She currently teaches the Children's Yoga class at Shree Yoga in Taos and also teaches summertime sessions of "Yoga in the Park" at Kit Carson Park in Taos. She likes to bring breath work, chakra work, and a sense of humor into her yoga classroom.
Meghan Mason says, “I am committed to meeting you where you are in life and your yoga practice. Through breath and movement we reach out to bigger possibilities inside ourselves. The poses that inspire me most are warrior poses.” She completed a 300-hour teacher training in Orlando, Florida at Warrior One, and is also a Certified Personal Trainer, is CPR certified, completed Connection Coalition Trauma Informed Outreach Training, and phase one of Y12SR training (Sober Yoga, Relapse Prevention).
Gaea McGahee began practicing yoga 20 years ago in southern NM, her original home. She migrated to northern NM in 2011 and has a deep love for this place and community. She completed a 200-hour teacher training at Aura Fitness in Taos in May 2016. She likes this way of thinking about yoga, offered by Barron Baptiste, as the unending process of refinement.
