Mondays 7:15PM
Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is the foundation of other asana-based yoga styles. “Hatha” is Sanskrit for “sun” and “moon”—thus, Hatha yoga is taught as a practice that brings balance to both the masculine and feminine sides of the body, the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. This style of yoga asana is suited for both the novice and advanced practitioner alike. Modifications of each pose are encouraged based on individual needs, and more challenging variations are available as well. Rotating instructors include: Marisa Chiang, Megan Baker, Cristina dos Santos, and Temor Amin-Arsala.

Wednesdays 7:15 PM

Vinyasa Flow

Find some peace and tranquility amidst the week as we explore and connect with our bodies through the synthesis of yoga, movement, breath, and meditative work. Each class aims to create an open and spacious foundation to receive direct and uplifting energy, and to find new meaning in the term “embodied empowerment”. By building a greater and deeper awareness of the subtle light energies within, we can invoke a state of quiet and calm in mind, body, and spirit.

Instructor Bios

Megan Baker (Monday yoga)

As a recent graduate of the Prana Power Yoga Teacher Training, I am thrilled to be joining this space. As a teacher students can expect to feel the connection between breath and movement taught with a playful and nurturing tone.  My hope is that students will walk away feeling like they went on a yoga journey that will help prepare them for life off the mat.

Scarlet Batchelor (Friday yoga)

Scarlet started practicing yoga at Baptiste in Cambridge in 2000. Her practice has taken on many forms, flavors and locations since, seeing her through many moves (including 3 chapters in Cambridgeport) and becoming a mom to 3 children. A high school and college athlete (rowing), Scarlet’s yoga practice is athletically-oriented and as a teacher she seeks to help student find a balance between pushing their limits and respecting them (a concept that has been harder to come by as an athlete, mom and professional businesswoman). Scarlet trained at Core Power Yoga under Kristina Grinovich and in addition to Gallery 263 she currently teaches at the Core Power Comm Ave and Fenway locations.
You can contact Scarlet at scarlet@scarletsunyoga with questions, visit her website, or follow her on Instagram @scarletsunyoga.

Marisa Chiang (Monday yoga)

As a yoga teacher, my classes help students to experience the connection between their own body, mind and breath.  My hope is that students walk out of the class empowered and rejuvenated to be and feel themselves.  I want to create spaces that cultivate joy, strength and healing.  I have practiced yoga since 2003, and have been teaching a mix of vinyasa, restorative and slow flow yoga since early 2017.

Cristina dos Santos (Monday yoga)

Cristina dos Santos is an Ayurvedic Practitioner, yoga instructor and intuitive healer who utilizes Yoga, Ayurveda, Reiki, and prayer in her approach to holistic wellness. Her studies of these ancient healing systems began in 2006, taking her to India in 2017 to complete 500 of her now 750 hours of YTT. Having experienced first-hand the wondrous healing of Ayurveda and its sister science yoga, it is her goal to share with others the same tools she began discovering on her mat years ago. Cristina emphasizes the importance of love, kindness, and compassion for self and others in each of her classes, encouraging students toward a place of deep inner peace and oneness.
