Sadie

Sadie grew up in Connecticut and moved to Boston in 2021. She lives in Savin Hill, down the street from Connected Through Strength, and is thrilled to be sharing the practice of yoga within her own community. When she took up yoga a decade ago, she came to realize one of her greatest passions.

Sadie received her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification from JP Centre Yoga in 2022 and aims to create classes that honor and invigorate both the physical body and the soul. Yoga has helped Sadie heal her connection to herself and to the universe, and she wants others to share in that experience with her. She has a calm and open demeanor and works to establish an environment of support and self-exploration in her classes.

Outside of the studio, Sadie enjoys cooking, traveling, hiking, playing the guitar, and hanging out with her dog and two cats.

Angela

Angela grew up south of Boston and was very active participating in sports before heading down to Clemson for college. Looking for a new way to stay active this is where her love for group fitness classes began. She was a regular in Clemson’s cycle, barre and dance fitness
classes, loving the community that fitness brought to her. After four years at Clemson she moved back to Boston and was looking for that same community.

 

Angela obtained her certifications in Ignite Cycle and Empower Barre at the end of 2020. You can find her teaching both Ignite and Barre classes at the studio when she’s not working as a Civil Engineer in Downtown Boston. Angela is always on the hunt for a good remix track and you’ll be sure to hear that in her classes.
 

When she’s not in the office or the studio you can find Angela “getting her steps in” around the Savin Hill neighborhood, trying new restaurants, and over planning for any upcoming trips!

Alaina

Alaina was born and raised just outside of Pittsburgh PA. She has always had a passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. Growing up, Alaina was active in every sport available, and danced from age six through her college years. It wasn’t until college that she discovered fitness classes and quickly fell in love with the challenge, positive atmosphere and friendships formed in the studio.

 

After graduating, Alaina moved to Baltimore, MD to start her new career as a Registered Nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The gym became her place to find peace and relieve stress. After being inspired by a phenomenal instructor there, Alaina began to think about becoming an instructor herself. When she found her way to Boston in 2017 to start her life with her now husband, she decided to follow her dream and become certified in fitness classes!

 

Outside of the studio, Alaina works full-time as a Registered Nurse in Boston and is working on her Master’s degree in Nursing Administration. She enjoys traveling, staying active, spending time with family and friends and testing new restaurants. In the studio, you can count on Alaina to always bring high energy, a positive mindset and a good sweat!
