Prenatal Yoga


This class is taught by:

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 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.”
