Moderate Yoga


This class is taught by:

Irene Clauser

Irene first discovered yoga as a teenager and practiced leisurely throughout college. It was not until 2014 that she became a dedicated student. Irene received her 200 hour certification through Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and studied under Brahmani Liebman, Jashoda Edmunds, and Yoganand Michael Carroll. Irene is also a certified ChildLight Children’s Yoga Teacher and has provided a variety of classes for children and families. Irene‘s study of yoga initially began as a physical practice but later flourished into a study of yogic philosophy, spirituality, and the inner Self. She is a sarcastic empath who wears her heart on her sleeve and is always up for a good laugh. As a former Domestic Violence Counselor/ Advocate, Irene has cultivated her classes to be a therapeutic practice, bringing attention lessons for on and off the mat. While doing her best to offer a variety of flavors, Irene‘s classes will always focus on Swami Kripalu’s teaching… “self observation without judgement.”

Maggie became a Carlisle community convert after graduating from Dickinson College in Sociology and working for the College Farm. 
Through a series of asanas that stretch, strengthen and relax the body and mind, participants build core strength and develop flexibility. With a compassionate focus on proper alignment and the integration of breath with movement, participants find ease and well-being within the postures, leading to a renewed connection with self. Previous yoga knowledge is encouraged but not necessary.
