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.
Danielle Kennedy With limited expectations, Danielle walked into her first yoga class as a way to introduce movement back into her life after a motivational rut. She didn’t realized that this class would spark a journey that would open her up to so much more than that. Through yoga, Danielle has found grounding, freedom, confidence, and community, and driven to share these gifts with others, she completed her 200hr RYT training with David Vendetti and Todd Skoglund of South Boston Yoga. With a focus on intelligent sequencing and creating harmony in the body through safe and aware alignment, she seeks to infuse a sense of empowerment and play in her classes. Danielle’s teaching style is informed by her broad love and curiosity of movement, and when she is not teaching or practicing, she can be found monkeying around with fellow climbers, acrobats, slackliners, dancers, and movers of every sort.
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.
