Noel Doule of Namaste Noel Yoga
I started practicing yoga at home as I was looking for something physical, and to bring flexibility back into my life. After dancing for 14 years flexibility had always come naturally to me until I stopped dancing, and lost most of it. I find that flexibility/range of motion is important for everyone in their own body.
My yoga journey began after a few weeks of practicing at home when I started to notice how I was feeling. Not just physically but also mentally. I was happier, more calm and much more accepting of myself, and my life. From there I took the next step down my path and began teacher training. There I learned how to deepen and understand my own practice while learning how to share it with others.
Yoga found me when I needed it the most.
As I take another step down this path and begin teaching at Breathe Revolution I will be offering 1 hour Yin yoga. A class focused on creating space through the body by using breath and long holds in poses. Longer holds in poses can sometimes bring unusual feelings upon us. As we learn to use our breath, we begin to understand what those feelings are and how to release them.
I encourage students to take what they need from class, and leave behind what no longer serves them.
I look forward to guiding your practice.

Alicia McQuade of Aluka Yoga
My name is Alicia McQuade and my yoga journey began somewhere in between graduating high school and a few years later finding myself seeking an outlet to confront emotions I didn’t know what else to do with.
Yoga was not love at first class in my journey. I had to actively try and enjoy it. What I discovered in that process is that my relationship with my mat is always reflective of my relationship with myself. There has yet to be a time where I show up on my mat and am not exactly met with what I’m currently dealing with – good and bad. I find so much magic in that kind of escape, except rather than escaping myself I am diving straight into all of those things I most likely would not have otherwise confronted.
My classes are gentle, though can be the challenge you are looking for. I encourage all students to take exactly what they need, and leave all that they don’t. You can expect a slower pace, holding poses for longer lengths of time allowing you the space to breathe into the pose, understand where and what you’re feeling and simply being there with it.
I look forward to the honor of leading you through your practice.
