I am an adventure-seeking mom of two power-lifting kids who enjoys staying active and healthy. I live by the four F’s- Family, Fun, Fitness and Food!  Organized sports were a big part of my life from middle school through high school including swimming, track and field and martial arts. I like to run anything from 5k’s to half marathons, especially Spratan races! I won my OCB Physique Pro Card in 2018 as a natural bodybuilder. I have been in the health and fitness field for almost 15 years and am a certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise and a certified YogaFit Instructor. My certifications also include PN Level 1 Nutrition Coach.

Christina has been a student of yoga for 20 years, and yoga has offered her peace, strength and rest. It has helped her overcome aches and pains that she thought were just part of being a devoted athlete. Over time, her yoga has been life changing and completely transformative. Christina completed her 200 hour teacher training with Tricia Philpott Master Teacher @Empower Yoga Studio. Her training is Baptise, but she pulls from other forms of yoga and is influenced by her teachers on and off the matt. Her classes will purify the mind, be physically challenging, refreshing, and fun-loving. They are appropriate for beginners and for yogis of all levels. Her students are taught to modify poses to meet their own needs. Her students are encouraged to listen to their bodies and follow intuition. She hopes that you leave her classes joy-filled, loved, and supported. Christina is also a Reiki 2 practitioner which brings another element to her teaching.She hopes to bring her love for yoga and that sacred healing space to all that come to her classes. Christina lives in Amesbury with family.

Sarah Oleson

Sarah Oleson is an International yoga and wellness retreat leader based out of New England. Sarah was introduced to meditation as a child when her mother brought her to the local yoga studio, where she learned to sit and focus on the joy of being present. Keeping a daily practice over with the years with mindful meditation, vinyasa yoga, and many other facets and yogic paths, Sarah decided to take her practice a step further. She completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher certification with Frog Lotus Yoga International in Bali, Indonesia in 2014, training and teaching alongside some of the best instructors in the world. She returned to Bali in April 2018 to complete her 500 hour ytt, and has been traveling the world since. Sarah also completed her Childlight teacher training, and is certified to teach ages 2-18. Sarah is also OM births certified to teach pre-natal yoga.


Leading retreats and teacher trainings all over the world has allowed Sarah to be constantly inspired by nature, different cultures, spirituality, and the elements, linking movement, breath and the true beauty of life through the graceful practice. Her Classes combine mantras, mudras, deep pranyama, and asana... expanding the full yoga experience. Her playful and energizing classes challenge the body while still relaxing the mind. Sarah encourages growth and interconnectedness of the physical and spiritual self within students, and incorporates accessible levels and modifications for each individual.Sarah seeks to help others thrive by nurturing body and soul through yoga, and her hope is that her students will step off their mat and into everyday life with that same nourishment and balanced attitude.


Tayla began practicing yoga in 2013 and in May 2019 she followed one of her large dreams by completing her 200 hour RYT training through Boston Yoga School. As an athlete throughout her youth, she first looked to yoga as a physical practice but over the years discovered the benefits extended to her total wellness. What kept her coming back was the connection of the mind, body, breath and spirit that makes yoga not just a workout, but a practice of mindfulness and self-awareness.

Tayla loves practicing yoga because she knows it is something that is impossible to perfect. There are no expectations to become a master and she finds comfort in that. It is a true honor to be a conduit for a practice that she loves.

While not on her yoga mat, you can find Tayla and her adventurous spirit enjoying her time at the beach, hiking or anywhere outdoors with family and friends! 


Molly Sullivan Teal

Hi, I'm Molly Sullivan Teal, RYT 200.  I'm a fitness instructor and registered yoga teacher.  My fitness journey began as a kid, always being involved in youth sports and anything outdoors. With this, I also faced severe chronic injuries through my young adulthood and had to find a way to fall in love with exercise again. I began taking barre classes, utilizing every modification I could to make it through until I slowly built back strength I lost. I was hooked and completed my certifications in Metafit (HIIT/strength), barre, cardio kickboxing and my 200 hour yoga certification. Teaching is my passion and I love meeting new people. With each class I teach, modifications are offered so every BODY is welcome regardless of where you are on your fitness journey. See you at the beach!
