DIANE OUELLETTE - After moving to Wells, Maine from Nashua, NH in 2001 and retiring from a career in the Human Resource field several years later, Diane devoted her time to the practice and study of yoga. Throughout her life, exercise has always been an important part of her daily routine, and currently she and her husband love to walk and bike along southern Maine’s beautiful coast. But after enrolling in a yoga class in 2003, Diane knew she had found something beyond other traditional forms of exercise to benefit her both physically and mentally. Yoga has brought greater flexibility, strength and balance to her life, as well as increased peace of mind.Diane’s desire to share this wonderful yoga lifestyle with others prompted her to receive her yoga teacher certification in 2009. Her style of teaching is centered in the strong belief of proper alignment and breathing while performing postures. Diane’s classes incorporate gentle warm up stretches before moving into more flowing posture sequences. Her focus is on ensuring that students practice yoga in a safe environment and leave her classes feeling relaxed as well as energized.

HOLLY PELLETIER - Holly is a passionate and driven teacher and student of yoga. She first found yoga as a anxiety ridden college student with extremely tight hamstrings, and almost instantly, fell in love with the practice. Over the years, her practice has shifted in many ways and after completing two teacher trainings and countless other workshops and continuing education courses, she has gathered information from many different lineages to help create her own unique style that focuses a great deal on alignment, intention, energy, and key concepts from Chinese medicine. Holly’s other work, her “day job”, is that of an acupuncturist, which she cares deeply about. Her love of the two healing modalities combine seamlessly in her classes and her acupuncture sessions, which gives her unique insight into the inner workings of the body and it’s meridian systems. As a result, her teachings do not only tap into the physical, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual realms. Holly currently holds her E-RYT 200 in Vinyasa yoga, is a licensed acupuncturist in both Maine and Massachusetts, and is certified in First Aid/CPR/AED.
