What is Riverbend Yoga?
Riverbend Yoga is a midsized, women owned and operated yoga and meditation studio in Yarmouth, Maine. We focus on the breathe and body connection while practicing traditional asana/yoga postures.

We are conveniently located right off exit 15 on Route 1 in Yarmouth, just 12 minutes north of Portland.
What inspired you to become the Studio Manager of Riverbend?
I was inspired to become a yoga teacher because of the many healing benefits of the practice, physical, emotional, spiritual, even mental. I fell into the management position due to drive and determination and my passion to share this practice with my community. My business partner and I work very closely to make yoga accessible to everyone.
What is one challenge and one lesson you’ve learned from your experience as Studio Manager? The major challenge would be facing the fact that I can not please everyone. This is NY yoga, daily. As an empath, I am always in others shoes and wanting to cater to their needs. I suppose one lesson I have learned through yoga but also through my position running Riverbend, would be to stop and think before reacting/responding.
What are your top 2 favorite Riverbend memories?
I remember the very first class I taught at Riverbend and the nerves hitting every inch of my body. Since then, the space has grown into a sanctuary and support and healing for me. I am looking forward to building new memories over the years.
