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.

Julia Julia graduated from Kula Teacher Training in New York, and has taught yoga in Brooklyn, the Amazon of Brazil, and now Boston. She is a lifelong student, as yoga and mindfulness have helped her overcome challenges with grace. Now an avid climber, Julia jumped into the sport several years ago at MetroRock Everett. She loves the mental focus and transcendence that come from both climbing and yoga practice. She strives to make yoga accessible and enjoyable to all bodies and experience levels, with a focus on healthy alignment.

Melissa Paz Melissa has always been inspired by the human body as an instrument for self expression. Having been a ballet dancer for the majority of her life, she found herself re-ignited by what the practice would bring to her performance. This led her to complete her 200-hr teacher training from CorePower Yoga. Her style of teaching aims to be supportive and personalized, while incorporating a focus on body awareness that she finds integral to various athletic pursuits. She has continuously been both motivated and uplifted by how much the rock climbing and yoga community complement one another in their ability to align mental and physical fortitude. She is excited to foster that connection for her students at MetroRock.
