Guerda

Guerda Victor

Guerda is an enthusiastic health and wellness coach who is committed to motivating, empowering and inspiring others to tap into their power and healing potential. Guerda believes true healing comes when the individual is treated as a whole and issues of the mind and body are addressed in an integrative way. She holds a Masters in Mental Health and Counseling with a specialty in Trauma.

Guerda’s experience in wellness and alternative health practices extends over decade. She has always been fascinated by the anatomy of the body and how it moves and functions. This fascination with the body led her to obtain a B.S in Exercise Science as well becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in various modalities such as Reiki, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral therapy and Somato-Emotional Release. Through her work as a bodyworker, Guerda became aware of the intricate connections between the mind and the body and that the two are parts of the whole not separate entities. She also experienced the affects of this distorted and disconnected perception of the mind and body had in her personal life, thus began to explore other modalities to heal such as yoga and meditation. This journey of self inquiry and healing inspired her to become a yoga teacher through the Kripalu School of Yoga and JourneyDance Facilitator.

She aspires to empower others to develop deeper level of self awareness, to explore and tap into their own power, wisdom and healing potentials. “My intention is to use my gifts to assist others in their healing journey. I want to impact people’s lives by influencing their wellbeing, educating and by providing them with tools that will help them to reclaim their joy and move through life with more zest.

Julie Brady

Julie Brady

Julie began practicing yoga in 2005 to support her daily workouts, which at that time included distance running, spinning, elliptical training, circuit training and HIT. A self-professed cardio junkie, Julie would exhaust her body to exhaust her mind. Naturally, Julie’s first yoga class was at her gym. Julie understood early on from the instructor’s thoughtful comments that she was being offered more than just a physical experience. And Julie found that she could have a vigorous physical experience on the mat that was more fulfilling than depleting, while also training her mind. Over time, growing increasingly curious about the practice, Julie found a studio near her office. Then a studio near her home. Julie’s interest in yoga grew in proportion to her increased exposure to different instructors and styles of practice. In 2009, Julie enrolled in her first 200 hour RYT program. Julie completed a Restorative Yoga TT in 2014, and she completed her second 200 hour TT in 2016. Julie endeavors to offer classes with intelligent movement and coordinated breath that build strength, break sweat and stretch not only muscles but minds. She attempts to lace her classes with useful content ranging from anatomy to alignment to yogic history and philosophy. Off the mat, Julie works full-time as a consumer protection attorney.

Majidah Hosein

Majidah Hosein

Majidah is from Orlando, FL and began taking yoga classes at the age of eighteen. After her first asana practice she noticed a sense of peace in her mind and relaxation in her body. Intermittently, she began dabbling in yoga as a physical form of fitness.

Majidah moved to Boston in 2011 for a career in hospitality management. After years of long hours and perpetually putting herself second, she was burnt out. She took a leap of faith and left her job. In 2013 she began to attend yoga classes at North End Yoga and rediscovered her love of yoga - nourishing her mind, body, and soul.

Majidah completed her 200-hour teacher training certificate at the Boston Yoga School. She is grateful to her teachers Ame Wren, Brenna Matthews, Joanna Benevides, Lindsey Blake; and her mentor Nicole Clark.

In her classes, you can expect educated alignment cues along with her light-hearted nature. Her hope is to inspire her students to feel a sense of patience and awareness within their own mind and bodies.

Tara Jackson

Tara Jackson

In 2006 Tara started taking yoga classes at Boston Sports Club in an effort to gain more flexibility. As she deepened her practice over the years it occurred to Tara that, just as yoga had benefitted her, it could also positively impact the children under her charge as a professional babysitter. By 2014 Tara was so dedicated to yoga that she decided to deepen her practice by completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Boston Yoga School. Upon graduation, she began seeking out ways to bring yoga to kids and went on to earn her children’s yoga teaching certification through Coolidge Corner Yoga. It is Tara’s hope that through yoga her young students, including everyone from toddlers to preteens, will gain insight and learn to turn inward while having fun on their mat.
