Barbara Polowy & DeDe Boyd

Barbara Polowy is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT500), certified by the Yoga Alliance. She has practiced in a variety of yoga traditions since 1998 and has been a student of Patty Townsend since 2010. She completed the Embodyoga® teacher training at Yoga Center Amherst and has served as an assistant in the 200- and 500-hour teacher training programs there.  Barbara’s  classes encourage students to explore mindful practice of classic yoga asana, breath awareness, and meditation techniques to reduce stress, increase energy, improve balance and flexibility, and safely support everyday movement.

DeDe Boyd, RYT 500, is a certified Embodyoga® teacher. Her teaching encourages students to find their own individual expression in yoga, using breath as a guide. Her classes focus on developing inner sensitivity and creating harmony and balance in body and mind.  Practicing yoga for more than twenty years, DeDe has been inspired by teachers from many traditions. Her strongest inspiration comes from Patty Townsend and Embodyoga® which has given her a glimpse of a deeper practice that includes moving from the inside out. DeDe brings enthusiasm and her own love of yoga to help all students explore movement in a safe and supported environment.
