What to expect

We encourage everyone to bring their own yoga mat, although we do offer mats for rent. You may also want to bring some water and a towel. You will get sweaty in most of our classes (with the exception of stretch and restorative). At Yoga Vibe, we like to tune out the world, turn off our minds and get lost in the flow! Each class is different so try them all!

Darby Orr RYT-200

Darby began his Yoga journey years ago as a way of creating balance in his life amid career stress, long hours sitting in front of a computer and relationship changes. Through Yoga he developed physical strength and flexibility, mental focus and, to his surprise, a renewed and joyous creative spirit. Inspired to share Yoga’s transformational gifts, he formally began his Yoga training with The White Lotus’ Ganga White.

Darby's classes emphasize the perfection of the present moment and the enjoyment of the journey. There’s laughter, sweat and an eclectic mix of music to lift the spirit and impart a sense of balance both physically and mentally. He is continually inspired by his students and feels truly blessed to be a guide, partner and witness to their yoga experience.

Elaine McCoy RYT-500

Elaine discovered yoga in 2001 while studying Thai Massage in Chiang Mai. By experiencing the benefits of hatha yoga, she left Thai Massage behind and began practicing yoga at an Iyengar based studio where she received her 200 and 300 certification. She has been teaching since 2011. She also has her certification in Yoga Tune Up® and Therapeutic Yoga.

Malona Alexander ERYT-500

Malona has been practicing yoga since 1969. She received her first yoga teacher certification in 1976 and was certified in the B.K.S. Iyengar system in 1981. Malona has been teaching over 35 years. She is also an AmSat certified Alexander Technique teacher since 1990. One of her greatest joys is in helping students find greater ease, confidence and creativity in their practice and life.

Frances Rothenberg was introduced to yoga seventeen years ago and credits yoga for transforming her life physically, mentally and spiritually. She holds a degree in Kinesiology from U.C.L.A. and has worked in medicine for thirty years. She truly believes that to experience our lives to the fullest, our bodies were meant to move. Thus, her teaching style reflects an emphasis on breath and movement to maintain a healthy mind-body connection. Having studied with numerous amazing teachers, she has synthesized many styles into a stew of slow flow with alignment based postures and breath awareness. She received her 200 hour teacher certification from Yoga at the Village and her 300 hour advanced training from Black Dog Yoga under the mentorship of Sigrid Matthews. In addition, she holds a certification in Therapeutic yoga and is a certified Level 1 Yoga Tune Up® teacher.

Marina Lähteenmäki RYT-200

For Marina, yoga is about doing what you can, with what you have, where you are. This idea that yoga is open and available, no matter what your personal story may be, is what turned yoga from a physical practice to a life practice for Marina. She found that through continual practice she was not only strengthening her body but also learning to calm her mind. Marina completed her training and mentorship in New York City where she taught before moving to and teaching in Helsinki, Finland. She is excited to be back in her hometown and a member of the Yoga Vibe at the Village family!

Jessica McMillan

Jessica first began dabbling in yoga to compliment her running practice. However the extensive joy and benefits of yoga were not apparent at first. Years later, a teacher finally made it clear that yoga was so much more than a stretching practice, but a way to find balance and peace in our mind and body, on and off the mat. As a teacher now, Jessica strives to bring that same clarity and comfort into her classes, and show students a path to yoga that works for them.
