Meet Colleen Dolce
Certified 500 Hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher
Certified Yin Yoga Teacher
Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher
Certified Let Your Yoga Dance Teacher
Hello and welcome! I have been practicing yoga for over 30 years, and teaching yoga since 2002. I became a certified 200 hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher in 2004. I am now a Certified Professional Level Teacher - completing 500 hours of teacher training, with the addition of 100 hrs of Yin Yoga Certification. In 1993 I took my first yoga class and was amazed at how class energy and thoughtful guidance could deepen my own practice and open up new avenues for self-acceptance and love. I teach ongoing yoga classes to diverse populations, ranging from at-risk women to older seniors, to people with MS, to children and teenagers. I am also a Certified Laughter Yoga and Let Your Yoga Dance teacher. I lead Laughter Yoga Workshops and Yoga retreats for public and corporate clients on a regular basis.
My goal is to empower my students to realize their full potential. My intention is to create a safe and sacred space for people to explore and delve deep into their true self. In class you will learn how to become more flexible, stronger, and increase your energy. Through yoga students willl discover techniques to help calm the mind, sleep better, and generally move through life with more grace and equanimity. Come to class!
Yoga is both my work and a way of life for me. I am continuously expanding my knowledge of yoga, teaching skills, and life with ongoing teacher trainings and retreats.
