Yoga & Fitness Instructor

I found yoga over 10 years ago and I immediately fell in love with the overall body conditioning it provided. Then I found Barre and fell in love with everything about it as well. I received my Barre training from Barre Intensity and Lifer Fitness in West Hartford, CT. The combination of doing yoga and Barre classes brought strength, flexibility and fun back into my life. I received my 200 YTT and 300 YTT from The Yoga Shop in West Hartford, CT. I am also certified in Chair and Restorative yoga.

Cheryl Pacyna

Yoga Teacher

Cheryl Pacyna is a retired school psychologist. She first became enamored of yoga when a colleague arranged for a yoga teacher to hold classes after school. She was immediately hooked on the release of stress the practice provided. As her practice progressed and her strength and mobility improved she decided it was time to deepen her practice by training to teach yoga. She completed her 200 hour initial teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, training with Yoganand Michael Carroll and Coby Kozlowski. She completed an additional 300 hours of advanced asana training as well as training leading meditation, pranayama, restorative yoga, and chair yoga classes. She enjoys teaching classes that are mindful and accessible to everybody.

Timothy Mayock

Yoga Teacher

Tim started his yoga journey 25 years ago with the intent to find relief from chronic pain. Tim says “Yoga has been a great tool and has taught me so much about my body and mind.” As a musician Tim finds that yoga and music practice intertwine. Tim approaches both with an attitude of "show up and let go of the results". Yoga helps with the contortions of daily music practice and singing helps to become more aware of breath and letting go of tension. Tim has done over 2000 classes with multiple teachers. He did a 250 hour yoga teacher training at Dhira yoga.

“My aim is to teach students about the mental benefits of yoga. I let them know that yoga can be similar to going to the beach in calming your thoughts. The challenge is yours to define and it never pays to push anything too much. The perfect pose is less important than the body's ability to find what works best – using props or just staying in an unsupported version of a posture.” His approach is lighthearted, yet purposeful.

Irene Hilbert

Reiki Practitioner

I received a Master of Education and have taught in the classroom in NYC and Windsor for over thirty years.

In 2014 I became certified in Reiki and have practiced reiki for 8 years. I sought out reiki to cope with the side effects of breast cancer.

Some of the benefits of reiki are:

It can stimulate the immune system.
It can help relieve stress and anxiety.
It can promote self healing and elevate pain.
It can improve sleep.

I continue to get support in reiki as a member of Andrea Fraiser’s Shine Tribe, an online group that supports reiki practitioners.

Currently I have my own paint party business. I can be reached at
