Blue aims to create a warm and supportive class that will be adapted for all levels of experience. She wants to help students bring freedom to their body and mind as well as uplifting the spirit.
In 1998 she completed her Integrated Yoga Teacher Certification in Northampton, MA and has been teaching ever since, both in her hometown Reykjavik, Iceland and here in New England.
“I was 18 when I discovered yoga, but there were not many teachers in Iceland at that time, I traveled to Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA and fell in love with Yoga.
I was so excited to have finally found a practice that is both active for my body and also balancing for my mind. Above all else yoga allows me to connect to my inner self, feel more alive and inspired.”
Blue’s Integrated yoga training incorporates a blend of Kripalu, Iyengar and Hatha Yoga, which focuses on correct posture throughout the flow of postures, breathing techniques and deep relaxation.
In addition to teaching yoga, Blue works part time as a physical rehabilitation technician at Gallagher’s Chiropractic and Medical wellness center in Leominster, MA. Some may also recognize Blue from when she used to work at Roots Natural Foods in Leominster
