Margaret Strom, E-RYT 200, is nationally certified and the owner/director of Mountain Moon Yoga. After more than 25 years of yoga practice and teaching, I am still in awe of its transformative possibilities. Yoga has the capacity to change our self, our day, and how we relate to the world. It teaches us love and respect for our self, those around us and the environment. Yoga enriches my life every day - the more I study, the more I want to learn. The more I learn, the more I want to teach others - sharing this gift of living a happy, healthy life. I thank all of my past, present and future teachers for helping me spread the light. Namaste’

Cathy Franzese found Yoga in 2009 while studying Sociology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Her fascination with the ancient teachings and its ability to quiet the mind, increase awareness and reveal our inner wisdom inspired her to pursue a 200hr YTTC in Guatemala with School Yoga Institute. It was there, on the shores of Lake Atitlan, that her dedication to the practice and a desire to share its gift had been ignited. Since then, she traveled to India for 3 months of intensive studies in Yoga Therapy and the Iyengar method with Sharat Aurora and Usha Devi. Their teachings have shown her the path to finding freedom in the subtle body by practicing proper physical alignment and by understanding the delicate balance between effort and ease in each asana. She teaches an Iyengar-inspired Vinyasa flow, encouraging students to be present, to accept where they are in the practice and to observe without judgment. The journey of self-discovery through yoga is a gift, a life-long practice, and she is honored to share this gift with others.
Lisa Bornfriend, RYT first experienced yoga for college credit and quickly discovered the benefits in both the mind and body. It has helped her deal with stress, find her breath, quiet her mind, and strengthen her body. Attending Margaret’s yoga classes since 2008, Lisa jumped at the opportunity to earn her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Mountain Moon Yoga in 2015. Regular yoga practice has helped her connect with her breath, mind and body on and off the mat, and has inspired her to help others do the same.
