Pamela J. Swanick - Certified Yoga/Pilates Instructor- pam@yoga4lifenh.com

Pamela J. Swanick, CYT, RYT Yoga-Pilates Instructor has over 15 years of teaching experience in the Wolfeboro, NH community.  With a long term vision to be able to provide classes in a safe and welcoming environment and have other inspiring instructors join her in this journey along the way is truly a dream come true.   Pam provides classes for every level, from gentle beginners to advanced vigorous flows.

Her Yoga styles are a combination of many ancient practices, including; Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Sport, Fit and Power.  Pam incorporates Pilates into every class because it is extremely important to keep a strong core which also keeps the spine strong, lean and long.  You will receive guidance throughout each class with Pranayma breathing so that your body can experience the full benefits of each pose, stretch and asana. You can always rely on a time for meditation at the end of each class to bring awareness into your inner self and just let yourself “BE”.

Pam created a perfect space for you to be comfortable treating your body as the divine temple that it is, always providing many levels of modifications to choose from so that you will know which one is right for you.  Her belief of teaching is to provide clear verbal direction and instruction while showing you each pose with variations so that you know exactly what to do and feel confident doing them.  She provides physical adjustments at times to prevent injury and to help each individual obtain their personal goals of strength, flexibility, and centering.

You will leave every class feeling balanced, strong, peaceful and refreshed all at the same time.

Andrea Eaton- Certified Yoga Instructor- eatonandream@gmail.com

Andrea has been practicing yoga for 10 years. She began in 2007 after college graduation, when she realized she would need to take a more proactive approach to keeping movement in her new professional office life. After many years of high school and college field hockey, Andrea fell in love with yoga as a way to maintain and build strength, relieve stress, deepen the breath, and explore inner thoughts and emotions while also sharing the energy and focus of fellow yogis in the studio. She credits yoga with teaching her how to truly breathe, and the benefits of breath control she learned in classes led her to complete a hypnobirthing course when she discovered she would become a mother. 

After the birth of her second son, Andrea felt the pull to complete yoga teacher training so she could help others leverage their practice to enhance their lives off the mat. She completed her 200HR RYT training in the Rasamaya method of vinyasa style yoga in 2014 under the instruction of Rasamaya founder, Carrie Tyler, and teacher trainer, Brie Burbank. Andrea loved Rasamya’s focus on the nine major human emotions or “rasas”, core and pelvic floor strength, and proper anatomical alignment. 

Andrea teaches an athletic practice that elevates the heart while maintaining a connection to an intention and a flow from pose to pose, inhale to exhale. She wants her students to leave class feeling accomplished, nourished and renewed. Yogis of any level will feel comfortable, with modifications and alternatives always offered. 

Andrea is a mother of three and, by day, works in marketing for a Seacoast NH software company. She holds a BS in Business from Babson College.
