 Anjali Rose (Lisa Lee) began her yoga and meditation practice over a decade ago and after experiencing the wonderful benefits of yoga became a 200 hr. RYT in 2015. Her yoga certification from Rasamaya Yoga, Newburyport, MA, brings to the mat the exploration of the body, mind and spirit through the flow of the chakras (energy centers) integrated with yoga postures (asanas) to provide a safe and sacred space for each student’s individual yoga practice. Each month a different chakra is explored and becomes the foundation for the asanas and the focus of optimal health through alignment and flow.

As a Reiki Master and Intuitive Healer she also brings an understanding of energy and experience to assist students in understanding their own flow of energy. Her studies of energy work include attaining her Reiki Master Teacher Certification with one of the longest Reiki Masters in NH, Libby Barnett, MSW, Reiki Master and Certification as a Metaphysical Practitioner. She embraces yoga as a spiritual practice with a unique sense of fun and guidance as she believes all people can practice yoga. (A great example being she continued to teach with a broken arm modifying for herself and inspiring others to let go of “perfection”.) As a life-long learner she graduated from Plymouth State University with a Master’s degree in Adult Education as well as a post-graduate certification in the Neurodevelopmental Approach to Teaching. Ultimately leading Anjali Rose (Lisa Lee) to her life’s passion of teaching others and healing from the inside out. She believes all people can find their true sense of self and guides her yoga students and Reiki clients with compassion, love and understanding. As a Life Energy Practitioner, she offers healing modalities of reiki, crystal healing, intuitive card readings, and most recently sound healing with brass and crystal bowls. As a true believer in engaging all the senses, she recently became Certified in Aromatouch with DoTerra essential oils as a way to achieve deep relaxation for balancing the immune system and bringing the body to homeostasis. An optimist at heart, Mom of two beautiful grown children, she loves being outside in the mountains, hiking, biking and walking with her two Jack Russells, Sage and Soucie. She is a frequent participant in Ecstatic dance and loves to dance and shine her light.

Come join us as we explore a new chakra each month and learn how your body, mind and spirit can manifest for your best self! Energy flows where attention goes, so pay attention to YOU!

My yoga practice began over ten years ago in a small mountain studio in Vermont. I began the practice in an attempt to aid my insomnia. Instead, I found an amazing practice in which I could play and explore my body. Yoga stayed fairly physical for me for the first few years as I used it as a way to train for surfing, snowboarding, and whatever other sport I was up to at the time. In 2007, I started my Master’s degree in Environmental Education, and yoga became “me time.” My practice began to change from a physical workout into a place for me to unwind. I started to feel the stress leave my body after practicing.
In 2010, I began my first teacher training. Over the past five years, I have completed over 400 hours of Hatha training, but I have had the opportunity to teach everything from paddleboard yoga to kid’s yoga and everything in between. I’ve shared my practice with high school students, taught restorative, hot, yoga nidra, power and flow classes while I have begun to come into my own as a teacher. I have run several beginner workshops and taught many first timers to “play yoga.” I LOVE teaching on the beach and on the paddleboard surrounded by nature. However, as my practice started in a small mountain studio, I am very excited to have come full circle and to return to my roots, in New England, and share my practice at Be Well Studios.

In restorative yoga we use props to support the body. This allows you to hold the poses for longer periods of time as the body begins to open through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. Restorative yoga is about relaxation, surrender, and renewal. All levels welcome. No yoga experience required.

A fun, engaging yoga flow class in which the breath guides the movement of the body. The mind becomes focused on the breath as the body moves through a series of poses including sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, backbends, core isolation and strengthening. Special emphasis is placed on moving into and out of postures safely, correct alignment, using the breath, and learning to quiet the chatter of the mind to find peace and inner stillness. Attention is placed on the journey of the movements. Get moving (and sweat a little) with this energetic blend of Yoga Asana that provide strength, flexibility & peace of mind.

The vinyasa class is a faster paced class including variations from the Ashtanga lineage. It works core strength and continuous movement to increase heart rates and challenge physical strength. Often set to fun tunes to get the energy moving. All levels welcome.

Hatha simply translates as the sun and the moon. In my hatha practice we seek a union between body and breath. Poses are held a little longer as we move deeper into the body by working with our breath. This is an all levels class.

In this class we tune into the rhythm of our breath and begin to move with ease and grace. We create strength and flexibility and we embrace stillness. Tension and stress are released from the muscles and joints as the body opens. You will leave class with a sense of stability and connection to the body, mind, and spirit. All levels are welcome.
