Bricelyn Shafron

Class styles I teach: Hatha, Gentle, Vinyasa Flow, Yinyasa, Stress Relief, Back & Hips, Nidra

My favorite yoga posture: Sirsasana/Headstand: I love the shift in perspective and feeling how the strength in my core has developed with my practice. What once seemed impossible is now easy.

Fur babies: 9 kitties, plus fosters. I was fascinated by cats as a child, but we had dogs as pets. Never would have guessed I'd be a crazy cat lady, but I adore them so much! I fall in love with just about every cat I meet.

My favorite Quote: Be mindful of your thoughts, your thoughts become your words. Be mindful of your words, your words become your actions. Be mindful of your actions, your actions become your habits. Be mindful of your habits, your habits become your character.

Why I yoga:Yoga has drastically changed my life. I found something I didn't realize I was looking for in the practice. I've learned much about myself and how I want to live my life. I've found so much peace and contentment.

My passions outside of yoga: I love exploring forests and spend as much time hiking in the woods as possible, journeying into the mountains to camp by myself a couple of times each year. I enjoy photographing wildlife, glimpsing into the lives of animals and capturing their astounding beauty.



Bricelyn Shafron instructs the following:
  • YinYasa (fusion of Yin and Vinyasa Yoga)
  • The fusion of Yin yoga with Vinyasa flow creates an integrated, balanced 75-minute yoga practice. The Vinyasa portion is flowing movement requiring strength and balance. The heat and internal awareness generated burns off excess energy allowing for a quieting of the body and mind in order to drop more fully into the Yin portion. These longer held poses are designed to release connective tissues and create space and integrity in the joints; allowing energy to flow through the body.

  • Yoga for Hips & Spine
  • This gentle class focuses specifically on the back and hips. Most postures are done seated or lying down. Class ends in a restorative savasana. No yoga experience required.

  • Slow Flow
  • Slow, deep and mindful. A meditation in motion that invites you to cultivate a steadiness of mind as you go deep into the physical and subtle/energetic body. Emphasizes the integration of inner and outer, breath and body, mind and heart. Variations of postures given so you can challenge your edge or take it down a notch.

  • Hatha I/II with Yoga Nidra
  • Beginning with warm ups and sun salutations, a Hatha II class will be structured similarly to the Hatha I class with prolonged holding of the postures and/or more difficult modifications to familiar postures as well as introducing intermediate level postures. Inversions may include legs up the wall, shoulder stand, handstand or head stand. Some arm balancing postures may also be incorporated. Modifications are always given. Some yoga experience is recommended. You will end the class with a restorative guided meditation, Yoga Nidra translates to Yogic Sleep, allowing for deep relaxation.

  • Yoga for Stress Relief-Gentle
  • This class offers practitioners some tools to reduce stress, improve health, and maximize energy by stimulating the body’s natural relaxation response. Proven techniques such as deep breathing, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation, guided meditation and yoga postures are incorporated in this one hour journey to relaxation. When practiced regularly, this class leads to a reduction in everyday stress levels and a boost in feelings of joy, serenity and well-being.

  • Gentle/Level 1
  • An excellent introductory class where beginners can learn and improve on their poses and breathing. Experienced students can focus on the foundations of their practice. Modifications are provided for all levels.

  • Gentle Yoga
  • More warm ups are provided, sun breaths are used instead of sun salutations and postures are not held as long. Inversions offered are gentle in nature such as legs up the wall. Each posture is taught with modifications to accommodate any level.
