Carin Crook

Carin first discovered yoga in college when a doctor suggested she try it to reduce stress. She did that…and a whole lot more.

For more than half her life, Carin has practiced a variety of yoga styles – Iyengar, Vinyasa, Kripalu, Power – with numerous teachers, including Mary Dunn, Dean Lerner, Julie Lawrence, and Bryan Kest. Carin did her 200-hour teacher training under the guidance of Jeff Migdow in the late 1990s, and she has attended many other teacher training programs, including at Feathered Pipe Ranch, Kripalu, Omega, and in Bali. Carin also completed pre-natal and kids’ yoga training workshops and a power yoga mentoring program under the guidance of Lyn Kehoe.

Together with her husband, Aaron, Carin leads a meditation group at LKPY under the guidance of Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche Ph.D. She is also part of the Well-Being Team at her corporate job where she has the privilege of helping to bring mindfulness, meditation, and yoga to the work setting.

Carin is thrilled to take a break from her corporate job and come to the mat to help others find stress relief…and a whole lot more!

Claire Walker Moffatt

Claire completed her 200 hour Power Vinyasa yoga certification through Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga. Claire has been practicing yoga since the late 1990s beginning with Iyengar, she also explored Hatha and Vinyasa before finding Power. Claire has been inspired by all of her teachers but has found a deep appreciation for Lyn Kehoe’s authentic style that challenges you to apply your yoga off your mat with your eyes wide open. Claire brings this kind of compassion and commitment to her yoga classes, creating a supportive community for her students that puts the breath at the center of the practice while still challenging the mind and body.

Claire is a mom of two and a former suit wearing executive. She’s also a certified holistic health coach focusing on bio-individuality as the basic guide to help her clients find their unique path toward health. The power in Power Yoga teaches us how to apply the yoga on and off our mats, and bio-individuality similarly serves her clients – teaching them to find their authentic self already inside to foster the healthiest version of themselves that they can be. She received her training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. She studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. Her teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Walter Willett, Geneen Roth, and others.

She has a BA in Anthropology and an MA in Public Administration. Both degrees provide her perspectives on how an individual’s background and history shape their relationship with health and wellness. She has a deep understanding and appreciation for the policies behind the health and wellness industries.

Lessley Burke

Lessley Burke has been a teacher for over twenty years, just not a yoga teacher!  She is an artist, a goldsmith, a business owner, a mother, a wife, a mentor and a teacher.  She has taught all aspects, physical, mental and inspirational, of designing and creating jewelry.  Two years ago she came to her mat for the first time looking for a way to regain her sense of self both physically and mentally after facing open heart surgery.  The experience was so powerful that she decided to train as an instructor so that she could share the strength and sense of empowerment that yoga gave her.

She practices and teaches at the Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga Studio in Ridgefield, CT where she is in the process of completing her certification for 200 TT with owner, Lyn Gerfin.  She teaches power yoga classes in which students of all levels will not only find their physical strength but their mental strength as well.

Lessley deeply believes in yoga’s ability to strengthen and empower.
