Avril has been called a Jill-of-all-trades as she not only teaches yoga, but is also a studio artist, art educator, philanthropist, entrepreneur, designer, and avid international traveler. In fact it was on her first solo, travel journey abroad that she found yoga, completely changing her life path. Divinely ending up on a small island in Thailand, she fell in love with the practice and its spiritual benefits so much so that she immediately flew to Bali, and eventually Costa Rica, to continue its exploration.Avril later graduated with her 200-hour certification from Island Yoga in Aruba under the mentorship of Rachel Brathen and Lara Heimann. She has since started several businesses, one of which uses her passion for education to share the meditative and holistic benefits of combining art-making, community, travel and yoga. She brings a mindful element of creativity that fills her life work to her classes and incorporates it into the sequencing, music and theme.
Avril also holds a B.A. in Art Education and has completed trainings in teaching mindfulness to children and yoga support for addiction recovery. In her spare time she enjoys making pottery, hiking, going on serendipitous adventures with her partner, writing poetry, expanding her businesses and learning new skills.

Kristine started practicing yoga looking to provide balance to an over active, busy life. Time on the mat allowed her to take her focus inward. Embracing as much of the teachings she could get her hands on, she knew she found her passion ~ a true seeker on a path. Eleven years later, she still is deeply driven by the many aspects of the practice and to embrace the next steps as they come.As a teacher, Kristine loves to share yoga and its teachings to all the other seekers out there. Some of many teachers that influence her are: Jacqui Bonwell, Shiva Rea, Roberto Lim, Heidi MacVane, Danielle Toolan, and Sagel Urlacher.
Kristine is a graduate of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School and is also Yin Yoga and Restorative certified. As a Reiki healer, she offers energy work that can be often found woven into her classes. Kristine’s classes are energetic, fun and informative. All levels are welcomed.

Caitlin Corrigan is a RYT® 200 hour teacher who completed her training with Arcana in 2019. She has been practicing yoga since she was a teenager attending community classes at the Himalayan Institute in her hometown of Buffalo, NY. A resident of Maine since 2014, Caitlin has also spent time in Baltimore, New Orleans, and the NYC area. Her approach to teaching yoga is invitational and trauma informed; she believes deeply that we all have the capacity to heal, and that yoga can be a powerful tool towards supporting oneself in that journey.
Caitlin’s practice is also informed by her years spent as a performing artist and lover of stories and storytelling. She brings over 15 years of professional experience working in arts and non-profit settings and holds a Master’s in Fine Arts in Fiction. Caitlin loves spending time with her community creating radical, inclusive burlesque shows as the co-founder and host of Port City Peep Show, and recharges by enjoying the beaches and woods of Maine, and hanging with her friends, partner, and full household of 4 rescue animals. She is currently pursuing a Master’s in Social Work at the University of Southern Maine with the goal of becoming a licensed clinical social worker in communities of people experiencing poverty and other forms of systemic trauma and oppression.
