Kolleen Harrison began her yoga journey many years ago, following in her mother‘s footsteps. She and her mom taught fitness together back in Illinois and also became certified personal trainers through ACE. Her mom began teaching yoga over 20+ years ago, which inspired Kolleen to do the same.
Kolleen is a Certified Yoga Guide and Inquiry Coach. Her most recent endeavor was receiving a certification through Yoga.Psyche.Soul which integrates yoga and psychology. She is extremely passionate about the mind-body connection and the way in which yoga can heal and transform us through breath, asana and the spiritual essence held within the practice.
Laura Liss, MSW, found that a consistent yoga practice was vital while raising three kids and in supporting her through breast cancer and the loss of her mom. Building on a career in social work, Laura began teaching yoga in 2003 with the desire to share its powerful benefits. In 2005 she opened a wellness center in Downingtown, PA, where she taught yoga and meditation classes, led teacher training programs, and co-taught Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses until 2017.
Since moving to the area Laura is very grateful to be teaching weekly yoga classes at WHS and teaching Mindful Meditation and MBSR courses at Crows End. She is currently enrolled in the UC San Diego Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute’s MBSR Teacher Certification Program.
With a focus on acceptance, connection, and healthy alignment, Laura teaches from her heart and continues to work on meeting experiences with awareness and kindness. She believes it is a precious gift to be able to help others along the path and knows there is also much she can learn from each person she meets.
