Michele Landis

Michele Landis is the owner of Yoga at Simply Well. Michele teaches yoga and works as a one-on-one holistic health coach in Carlisle, PA. She graduated with honors from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, NY. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition is the only nutrition school integrating all of the different dietary theories, combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts such as the USDA food guidelines, the glycemic index, the Zone and raw foods. Michele's passion is helping her clients cook more and buy and eat local, seasonal foods. She earned her teacher certification in Kripalu Yoga from the Karma Yoga Lifestyle Program of the renowned Kripalu Institute in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. At the Kripalu Institute, where she studied and served on staff for almost two years, Michele learned the value of incorporating work as a spiritual practice through daily workshops, yogic breathing, nutrition, and connection to nature and community. Michele’s own connection to nature is reflected in her passion for backpacking. She has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine, and has taught day-hiking classes at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, where she first began practicing yoga. Michele has also hiked the Colorado Trail and New England’s Long Trail. She holds an associate degree from the Harrisburg Area Community College.

Irene Osborn

Irene began practicing yoga in 2007 to repair a rock climbing injury. After the first class she took, she realized that there was more to the practice than movement and flexibility. Irene found herself using yoga as a supplement to competitive rock climbing, able to have clarity of mind for competitions. After more injury and multiple surgeries, yoga was a constant lifestyle choice. Yoga helped Irene heal mentally, physically and spiritually from her surgeries. Irene became a 200 RYT in 2014 through Axis Yoga Teacher Training in Denver, Colorado. Her teachers were students of the Iyengar and Ashtanga lineages. Irene's desire is to teach healing and spiritually transformational classes while giving great attention to alignment and strength.

Irene is also a holistic health coach (in the making, coming October 2015). Her desire is that through healing foods and the practice of yoga, students would find the healing they need for their mind, body and spirit.

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.”

Brooke Wiley

Brooke began her yoga journey over 12 years ago as a last ditch effort to find relief from a painful injury. As the pain receded, the world of Yoga opened and beckoned.
 
She has been teaching yoga since 2009, when she completed her 200 hour teaching training with Bonnie Berk’s Yoga For Wellness. She is a Registered Yoga Instructor through the Yoga Alliance, and is certified as a ChildLight Yoga instructor (CYT), and recently completed Yin Yoga training under Regina Varos.
 
Utilizing the practices of asana, meditation, pranayama and chanting, Brooke’s primary focus is on slow, mindful vinyasa with an appreciation for non-judgmental awareness. She strives to create a safe and open space for curiosity, humor and ultimately, gratitude for how the mind-body exists from moment to moment. She believes that the practice of yoga, whether in community or in solitude, is a crucible for transformation and she is passionate about sharing this vision.
 
Brooke enjoys walking, reading, creating art and spending time with her family. She is a Zen Buddhist priest and holds a masters degree in Buddhist Chaplaincy. She is the director of the LeTort Spring Sangha.
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.
