Yin Flow


This class is taught by:

Ronda Guimond

I started practicing yoga on a regular basis in 2009 when Plymouth Yoga Room first opened. The teachers immediately captured me. I also had an indescribable sense of vulnerability that I could not explain nor was something I particularly embraced at that time. I was focused primarily on the physical benefits of yoga and how it challenged by body. But after a severe humeral fracture resulting in hand surgery and restricted movements often taken for granted, I realized my physical body is not what makes me strong. It is finding patience and choosing how to react to challenges. Yoga elicits both of these personal disciplines. Completing PYR’s Immersion Program in 2015 deepened my practice and created in me a particularly fondness for meditation. Yoga has taught me to be more present, to be in this moment, and that each day is a choice. I am grateful to guide you in the beautiful practice of yoga and learn how it has influenced your journey. Namaste, Ronda

I began practicing yoga in 2001 after my second back surgery. Following surgery my doctor sent me to physical therapy for rehabilitation. As a physical therapist myself, I became quickly frustrated due to my slow progress and the continued back pain. I was craving exercise that would strengthen and lengthen my muscles, align my spine, and ease my internal stress. I wandered into a yoga class and struggled with every pose. After one month I was practicing almost daily and incorporated the yoga philosophy into my private and professional life. In the fall of 2014 I completed the PYR Immersion program which deepened my practice of yoga and awakened my interest in sharing my knowledge of yoga with my patients at The Recovery Project as well as students at PYR. As a business owner myself, I have a deep appreciation of the atmosphere, students, staff and ownership at PYR. I am honored to have the opportunity to share my love of yoga with you. Namaste, Polly.

My yoga journey began when I was a fitness instructor many years ago and tried a few yoga classes. I noticed the physical benefits right away. However, I didn’t really connect with yoga at the time so I only practiced occasionally; just enough to keep injuries away. I became a running coach and later a high school Track and Cross Country coach and wanted to keep my athletes healthy. I decided I should investigate yoga further. In 2010 I came to PYR to check it out and bought an 8 class pack. I was all in right away. The space, atmosphere and teachers were all amazing. Immediately, I began practicing 4-5 times per week on a regular basis. The real hook for me was that PYR was the first place that emphasized the connection to the breath and that has always been a primary focus for all my fitness and coaching instruction. I finally went through the PYR Immersion Program last fall. One of the most emphasized parts of the program is to “teach from your practice” and I have taken that very seriously as I want my students to feel like I’m right on the mat next to them as they practice, feeling the same things, maybe thinking the same things. I am so honored to have the opportunity to serve my community through the practice of yoga.  namaste

Brent Rieli has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since the mid 1990’s, enjoying the rewards and benefits offered from an intense practice. Wanting to delve further into the discipline of Yoga and become a teacher, Brent waited until his practice became deeply rooted to build a strong foundation from which to teach. In January 2009 Brent and his wife Sheri founded the Plymouth Yoga Room where they have continued to deepen their practice and help entice an inner peace to all that choose to look for it. Brent and Sheri have also helped to cultivate incredible teachers through their Yoga Immersion Program in an effort to increase the awareness of yoga throughout the community.

I have been practicing yoga since 2002 when I was introduced to it at the fitness center where I was attending classes. I loved it so much I decided to go through Teacher Training in 2003 and then again in 2005. Both experiences were wonderful as I learned so much more about my own practice and of course how to share it with others. As a teacher, it is important to me that my students feel comfortable, connected, challenged and most importantly able to rest their minds. That time on your mat is so precious and every moment you are able to let go of your thoughts is time well spent! I have been teaching since the summer of 2007 and have been with the Plymouth Yoga Room since it opened in January of 2009. I've practiced and taught yoga at several other studios before coming to PYR, but have decided this is where I feel the most connected to both the staff and the students. Plymouth Yoga Room is a warm, inviting, comfortable place. If you just walk in the door you'll know what I am talking about!  I hope to see and meet you soon.   Jen
