Aline Marie is a certified Kripalu style yoga teacher, the yoga of Compassion and Bliss! She has been teaching and practicing yoga since 2002 and is also certified with Yoga Alliance in her 200 hour teaching credits. Specializing in Unconditional Love and Peace, it is easy to be a beginner or really any level of yogi in Aline's classes. Students are encouraged to honor their bodies and are lovingly guided through each pose to find their own freedom of expression... to find their "yoga" or union with themselves. Non judgement and self acceptance reign supreme during each practice and are encouraged to be taken off the mat as well!

Aline teaches yoga full time to adults and children and twoyears ago had the chance to start a yoga program at Hawthorne Cedar Knolls in New York, an alternative school and rehabilitation center for children and teen survivors of abuse and trauma. She also started the yoga program at the Newtown, Ct school systems Summer Music & Art program (S.M.A.R.T.) and will continue to teach it again this summer of 07'. Aline is also a full time working artist who currently hand paints sacred sanskrit symbols onto personalized yoga mats.
