Retreat Leaders

Tacy Nielson

Tacy Nielson is honored and extremely grateful to call herself a Yoga Instructor. She Cjuaneza_10received her 200 Hr certification in 2014 in Costa Rica and has continued to learn and grow in her teaching by taking several more teacher trainings such as Yin, Yoga Nidra and Advanced Anatomy immersions. Tacy is also a Certified Massage Therapist, a Reiki Master and owner of Sapphire Healing Jewelry. She is a student first and a teacher second and would spend all her time in teacher and massage trainings if she could! She teaches alignment based Vinyasa with a focus of intentional movement and self-expression. She also teaches Yin and Yoga Nidra, which she connects with deeply. Tacy believes there is something to learn every time we step onto our mats and that the journey of self-work is never finished. She is drawn to slow, meditative practices where she can turn inward and continue her journey of connecting to her intuition. She also loves reading inspirational books, drawing oracle cards, traveling and eating avocadoes.

Throughout the week Tacy will guide you through some of the morning Vinyasa and meditation classes as well as evening Yin + Reiki classes. She will also offer several guided Yoga Nidras at varied times of the day. Tacy will also be leading a portion of the workshops offered on topics like Journaling, Ayurveda, Chakras as well as a Mala bracelet making workshop! Leading retreats fills up her soul and ignites her with a deeper purpose to share her love of Yoga and Healing with as many people as possible.

Kate Resch

Kate first stepped into a yoga studio as a teenager who secretly hated most things active23959_1325066928098_3769772_n and dreaded PE class. She immediately fell in love with how connected she felt to her own body, the yoga mat, and the world around her. The connection of movement to breath, breath to body, and body to mind have had profound effects for her, helping her manage anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and life’s transitions. She is passionate about sharing these wonderful effects of yoga with her students!

Kate practiced Bikram and Ashtanga yoga as a college student in Vermont for several years, until she decided to take the leap and deepen her connection to yoga through a Vinyasa and Hatha yoga teacher training in 2012 with Prague Yoga. Upon completing that first 270 hour teacher training course, Kate began teaching Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Yoga, Beginner Yoga and Dynamic Core Yoga at several studios in Prague, Czech Republic, where she lived and taught elementary school for 6 years. Kate has many years of experience working with students from all backgrounds and levels, and hundreds of hours of continuing education including certifications in Kids, Family and Community Yoga, Hot Yoga, Partner Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, and Aerial Fitness. Kate loves making yoga accessible and fun for people of all ages, and truly believes yoga is for everybody. When she isn’t practicing, teaching, or thinking about yoga, Kate is probably out enjoying the outdoors with her adorable 6-year old yellow labrador Leo, cooking a vegetarian meal from her family’s garden, or planning her next trip abroad.
