“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful of your life.” – Mark Twain 
One of my favorite quotes for over 15 years, it is a mindset that I choose to bring not only to my daily life, but my mat as well. As a RYT 200 teacher, Big White Barn Yoga graduate, I enjoy the opportunity to help my students in making each practice a beautiful one. I incorporate massage assists and energy work into my classes. I offer Restorative, Flow & Restore and Yoga Flow style classes with an emphasis on bringing peace to the mind and body, offering guidance through asanas for my students as they make each practice their own. I enjoy teaching all-level classes, while offering modifications for practitioners that may want to go a little deeper. Yoga has been a constant centering force in my life, join me in finding the joy yoga brings.

Amy Lenane

RYT 200

Early one morning in my teens, I saw a woman cast in the glow of the rising sun, deep in a yoga flow. I instantly fell in love with the movement of asana. From that moment on, having a yoga practice was a dream of mine, and by the end of my first class, I was hooked.

While in New York City, pregnant with my third child, I decided to complete the 200 hour RYT program to explore the philosophy of yoga and asana. Throughout the years since my training, my love for yoga has only intensified, and my commitment to the practice is teaching me to live my life with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

Today, I teach yoga as a lifelong student of the practice. Every word, breath and movement, a step deeper into my yogic journey, one which I hope to share with you. Namaste.

Dallas Drapeau

RYT 200

Having lived most of my life in Readfield, Maine, I am grateful to consider Maine my home. My background is in construction. I started building quality homes, then progressed into building cabinetry. In 2017, a friend suggested that I try yoga to help with some of the physical symptoms that I was experiencing, do to the nature of the repetitious work involved with construction.  I found yoga very challenging because of my inflexibility, but also very rewarding at the same time!  By practicing yoga, I started to notice improvements in my range of motion, my perception and mental clarity.  This inspired me to go deeper with yoga, so, in 2018, I decided to become a 200 hour certified yoga instructor through the training program at Panacea Yoga studio in Hallowell, Maine. Yoga training encouraged me to be on a spiritual path of self development, leading to certifications in Reiki energy healing, Integrated Energy Therapy and Pranayama breathing techniques.  I practice meditation, trusting my intuition.  I have become more mindful about having a positive perspective and a loving attitude.  I have a passion for practicing and teaching yoga, because it has made a profound impact on me personally.  Now I am grateful to share my experience and help others discover the powerful benefits of a consistent yoga practice! Namaste.

Amanda Thaller

Amanda Ray Thaller began her yoga journey as a nursing student over 20 years ago.

When not teaching nurses or yoga, Amanda enjoys loving her children, creative cooking, and spending time in nature. Yoga continues to bring balance in to her life and she hopes to help you discover the healing and stress relieving effects of yoga in one of her classes.
