Mindy Pistacchio

Ana’s Style

Ana has been practicing yoga since 1999. She fell in love with the practice because she felt strong from the inside out. Yoga has taught her throughout the years how to be present in her life, respond to experiences with compassion & kindness, and to live from a place of love.

As a teacher, Ana is specific on body alignment to ensure stability throughout the joints so that the student is strong and safe while they practice.

Her classes are geared towards all levels. However sometimes people prefer to do a private class beforehand. This provides one to understand the proper positioning in poses and begins to provide the foundation for a safe and effective practice.

Ana has a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with It’s Yoga and 500 hour training with Yoga Medicine. She also studies with Rod Stryker of ParaYoga.

Deb’s Style

Deb Feldman, MA, RYT, LVCYT, teaches yoga because she loves sharing the joy of movement we can find on the mat or on a chair. In 2017, Deb earned her 200-Hour Yoga Teaching Certificate in Ashtanga Yoga from Grateful Yoga in Montpelier, VT. She continued her training in 2018 with David Williams and at Kripalu with Lakshmi Voelker, becoming a certified LVChair Yoga instructor that same year.

As well as running her yoga practice, Deb meditates and writes as part of a daily practice she’s been evolving over many years. She holds Master’s degrees in Counseling Psychology and in the Applied Healing Arts. Using movement, mediation and writing at her home studio, Moretown Common Wellness, Deb applies her broad skills set in order to best mentor others in how to reach their goals.

When not practicing, Deb enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, being outdoors walking, hiking, and x-country skiing, or keeping cozy indoors sitting by the wood stove knitting, reading, or simply relaxing.

Mindy’s Style

Mindy began practicing yoga over fifteen years ago and has since accumulated over 700 hours of teacher training in a variety of styles of yoga and has had mentors in several different disciplines.  Currently, Mindy is training with Kathy McNames at Yoga Vermont, where both teacher and student love to play on their hands!  Despite her love for arm balances, Mindy has a strong background in teaching, and has the ability to meet students where they are at on the mat.  Expect variety when you arrive to class each Thursday and Friday morning.  Each class is unique, as Mindy is constantly experimenting with her own practice, taking her favorite pieces from bikram, ashtanga, jivamukti, kundalini and restorative.
