Fabienne (Fabi) Fonteneau
Fabienne (Fabi) FonteneauInstructor

Fabi’s journey into yoga started with curiosity -and chance – as a means of staying active. Trying something new was her first motivation. The well-being sensation she felt after her first Savasana made her want more.

That was the beginning of a regular practice that eventually led her to seek for a deeper knowledge of the yoga philosophy. What started as a simple interest turned out to be something that changed her life as she signed up for the 200 hr YTT with Meg Galarza at Yoga One Studio. As a teacher her hope is that every student experiences the “feel-good” sensation leaving the studio, feeling renewed, at peace with their mind & body.

Linda Eliopulos
Linda EliopulosInstructor

Linda has been a student of yoga for most of her adult life and enjoys being able to share her love for the practice with others. Her classes have an upbeat vibe and her teaching style is energetic and simple.

Through the use of cues, assists and modeling, she emphasizes alignment and awareness of body in space while still allowing the student to explore each pose to its fullest expression. “I believe we allcome to our mats with our own unique and different histories and bodies, and one pose can look and feel different from one person to the next, and from one day to the next. What remains as the constant is us collectively coming to our mats, each seeking something a bit different, but all pressing pause together on the outside world, and taking a moment to realign, reset and reopen. Yoga has made me a healthier and happier person and I want to create the space and time and guidance for others to experience something positive.”
