    Instructors:

    Cindy Jao, Lead Instructor Cindy discovered a love of yoga several years ago and hasn’t looked back since. She completed an intense 200-hour training in India, where she lived on an ashram, deepened her practice, and immersed herself in the yogic lifestyle. Her teaching comes from the heart, and blends her own experiences doing yoga in the East and the West. Her classes emphasize proper alignment and coordination of breath with movement, providing a foundation for developing the individual practice. She is continually inspired by the amazing teachers, students, crossfitters, runners, and climbers that surround her and hopes to share her love of yoga with them.

    Kaylee Frano Kaylee realized her passion for yoga when she began practicing in high school at 15 years old. What started as a basic gym requirement over eight summers ago has blossomed into a life-long passion project. In addition to countless hours of volunteer work at various studios and instructing weekly at MetroRock Everett, Kaylee completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Barre and Soul in July of 2014. When attending her classes, Kaylee hopes for her fellow yogis to feel empowered, strong, and comfortable in their ability to push themselves both mentally and physically. She specializes in Vinyasa Flow and loves to create a relaxed atmosphere filled with laughter and smiles.

    Steven Palmer Has been practicing yoga for 4 years and completed a 200 hr certification at Charlestown Yoga Studio in 2014. He has experience teaching corporate yoga classes and also yoga for veterans. (Full bio coming soon!)

    Lisa Matthews As a lifelong athlete, Lisa came to the mat more than 10 years ago after a car accident left her with whiplash and limited mobility in her neck. Yoga not only helped her heal, but gave a renewed strength along with flexibility she didn't think was possible. Helping her ski friends recover from sore hamstrings, hips, and quads after a long weekend on the slopes finally sparked the interest for her to move from student to teacher. She completed her 200 hour teacher training at Back Bay Yoga Studio in Boston. Her vinyasa training is infused with Ashtanga, Forrest, Yin, Anusara, and Iyengar and she brings a lighthearted and inquisitive nature to her classes. When she started climbing in the fall of 2012, she couldn't believe how a sport could align with the practice of balance, strength, breath, and mental fortitude so perfectly -- she is thrilled to bring her yoga practice to the climbing community at MetroRock.
