YOGI MARCO VINCI
Marco is a Certified 200 hour Yoga Instructor and Usui Reiki Master from the North Shore. His practice began on the Winter Solstice of 2012. This monumental first class challenged Marco with a physical practice that opened his eyes to the pursuit of advanced asana postures. Even more importantly, this first class was followed with a savasana that left Marco in a state of surreality. Never had his body been to a state of relaxation that also felt grounded and protected. The spiritual essence that had been dead asleep was reanimated on this date.
After 2 years of on & off practice which included a 6 month hiatus between his first and second class, Marco finally made the commitment to regular practice. During the summer of 2015 Marco’s life was shaken up after a house fire burned up and destroyed most of his personal belongings. Instead of seeing this as a loss, there was a not so hidden message through the ash and smoke. A message to begin anew with a different change in pace. “Release your grasp on the things out of your control.” Less than a month after the fire, Marco was lead to discover reiki healing and immediately felt a calling to learn this powerful healing modality. Within a year Marco received his first reiki attunement under the divine guidance of Usui Reiki Master, Jacalynn Willett.
While working as a mailman and a slew of random coffee shop jobs Marco graduated from his 200 hour teacher training and took the plunge to pursue his career as a full time yoga teacher in May 2017. Since completing his Reiki Master 1 Training, Marco has taught over 800 hours of yoga, and provided healing space to hundreds of people. He looks forward to meeting you for your next class.

Tina grew up an athlete, playing year-round soccer and continuing to play through college. After transplanting to Boston and looking for a change, Tina began to train and competed in powerlifting, where she holds a New England squat record. Yoga never struck Tina as ‘athletic’ until she took her first heated Power Yoga class. She was immediately hooked, later stumbling upon O2 Yoga and their upcoming teacher training. In 2016, Tina completed her 200-hour teacher training at O2 Yoga under Mimi Loureiro, where she studied an athletic, energetic yoga practice consisting of unique sequencing and hands-on adjustments. In 2017, Tina trained with ChildLight Yoga in their baby, toddler, and kids yoga series, and in 2018 became a certified prenatal yoga instructor under Barrett Reinhorn.
When not teaching yoga, practicing yoga, or cooking, Tina enjoys traveling with her husband, being outdoors, gardening, and spoiling her little dachshund.

Dot has been teaching Yoga for 15 years. She is certified in Iyengar style yoga with Kim Valerie of YOGAspirit, Linda Rado of Yoga on the Ball and Svaroopa yoga with Rama Berch. Dot brings to her classes a heart of gold, compassion and a spiritual sense of healing. Her classes employ the use of props, such as belts, bolsters, blankets and blocks. The use of props in a yoga practice allows the student to soften the muscles, move into the stretches easily creating flexibility and encourages students to see beyond their limitations. With the support, the body can move in subtle ways creating new openings and the student can linger longer in a position allowing the body to release and realign. Dot uses meditation and guided imagery to bring you to a state of total relaxation with a restorative focus for all levels of yoga students.
Dot is also an Usui and Karuna Reiki Master and enjoys teaching students in this healing art from beginner to master level and is also available for a relaxing individual appointment.
