Candace Lord

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. I truly enjoy helping people of all levels of fitness to reach their full potential. My motto?- “If you are going to rise, you might as well shine!”

Kacy Harnedy


 I am a traveling Ashtanga yoga instructor throughout Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire and occasionally may be found guest teaching abroad including countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Spain and Dominican Republic. I also host local and international yoga retreats focusing on soul balance and personal transformation. My endearment for the sea, salt air and wave play is the basis of all retreats I offer. The healing benefits are indescribable and recalibrate us into our natural element.

I am dedicated to guiding and supporting practitioners of all levels into the depths of their practice by emphasizing personal empowerment and encouraging the strength to embrace emotional processing . I truly aim to offer classes that shed light on interpreting and incorporating the nature of yoga with all other aspects of life; the true essence of Ahimsa.

I have an immense passion for traveling the world, creating awareness for environmental sustainability, finding lightness in everyday life and an equally large love for animals of all kinds.  Self-development, with a true passion for addiction recovery; addiction to substance, emotion and behaviors is a large part of my teachings.

Heidi Tyrell

Hello, my name is Heidi.  I've always been interested in science and fitness.  I have a B.A in Biology from Merrimack College and a B.S.N in Nursing from UMass Lowell.  I've been an RN for over 10 years and have dabbled in yoga over that time with primary focus in Bikram.  My true practice began over 3 years ago when I was going through a difficult time.  I walked into Saltwater yoga studio in Newburyport, MA and was blessed by the energy of the room and the yoga practice. I saw how much yoga helped me heal and how it helps my running.  I have run 10 marathons total with my last two last year (Boston 2018 and Chicago 2018).  I'm running Chicago again this year for year 6.  So grateful to be able to be a part of an amazing charity team (ABTA) and give back. I furthered my education since I wanted to help people in another way and not just through nursing, but through yoga.  I pursued my yoga teacher certification with international yoga teacher Robert Sidoti.  I have my comprehensive 200 hr YTT certification with Robert Sidoti of Broga (Optimal Living) with additional trainings in Broga.  I have been trained in Reiki I and II too.  I love being able to help people and love nature, animals and learning.  Also, I have to say I love animals too. :)  Looking to see everyone on a beautiful Tuesday morning for beach yoga of joy.
