Maureen Young, RYT500

Maureen has been teaching over 25 years! She was Helene's original teacher until Helene herself starting teaching! And she was in day 1 offering classes at H~OM when it opened its doors.

Helene refers to Maureen as her "yoga mama" & indeed she is to all who are blessed to take her class.

Devoted to keeping classes fresh & though she is gentle in nature yet her classes also offer manageable mindful effort. She is skilled at helping all levels achieve their humble potential & always seems to have something new up her yoga sleeve.

More so Maureen embodies yoga on the mat & in her life as a wonderful maternal soul.

She’s also completed YogaFit teacher trainings Level 1, 2 and 3,  Anatomy & Alignment, Kids Yoga, and PreNatal/PostPartum yoga. Her goal is to inspire students to maintain a sound body and a sound mind. She has the ability to modify the class based on the students’ abilities, limits, interests, and needs. She is soft spoken, kind & capable.

Her classes are a wonderful blend of nurturing approach & supportive "let's try a little more" classes.

Stephane Verkempinck, RYT200

Stephane is the newest addition to the H~OM yoga family.

With 14 years of practice behind him and having quit his day job, Stephane committed to following his love of yoga by taking Helene's YTT course and graduated in Spring 2019. 

He began by subbing and soon was in demand by those who attended when he subbed including the senior gals!

Stephane is strong in his practice but gentle and playful in his teaching. He will respectfully guide you through from beginner to more advanced poses depending on who shows up for class.

* Gentle to dynamic

Tanya Anderson, RYT200

Tanya is also graduate of Helene's training. (What can we say Helene has a great group to chose from in her trainings!)

Tanya will guide you smoothly & respectfully through poses keeping it easy enough for beginners while offering options for the more advanced yoginis.

She is strong, capable in body & mind as well as teaching skills.

Tanya will make sure you are safe yet encouraged to move within your own bodies abilities & limitations.

Her classes offer a safe space to practice if you are a beginner "let's take this carefully yet move!"  or an experienced yogi "let's see if we can try this more challenging pose!"

* Beginers - Experience; Respectful smooth flow with options if you want to do a bit more.
