Meghann Foster LMT, E-RYT 500

Co-Founder

Meghann fell in love with yoga, healing and bodywork in her early 20s. Growing up as a gymnast and athlete movement and body work has always been important to her and she loves the way yoga goes beyond the mat and incorporates yoga into all aspects of her life. She also has a holistic approach to health which encompasses massage, breath work, energy work and more.
Meghann became a licensed massage therapist in 2014 and then received her first 200 hour yoga certification in 2016, with a passion and thirst for knowledge and wisdom she went on to receive a 300 hour certification in yin yoga, based in mindfulness meditation and Chinese medicine in 2019 and most recently in May of 2023 she completed an additional 300 hour training in advanced yoga practices at Boston Yoga Union (now Back Bay Yoga Union). Along the way Meghann has also trained in over 100 hours of breath work, as well as countless hours in other massage techniques and many continuing education workshops for yoga such as trauma informed yoga. 
When Meghann isn’t on her mat or working on continuing education you can find her in the massage office where she specializes in a multitude of massage techniques, breath work and energy work. She also has a deep love for the outdoors with hiking being her favorite activity. She lives in Kennebunk with her partner and 3 dogs. One of these dogs, Basil, is the official office greeter and you will find him in the office most days of the week.
Meghann hopes to create a space for everyone that is accessible, healing, grounding, sometimes challenging, refreshing, and safe

Yoga Teacher

After two years of consistent practice, and a transformative gap year in 2020, Kayley began her teaching journey by getting certified to teach barre and then completing her 200HR YTT in southern Maine in 2020. Yoga, the magnetic power of exploring the connection between mind, body and breath and showing students how to use their body as a template to move insights is what Kayley is most passionate about in life. While yoga drives her life's purpose, she is also certified and has been actively teaching bounce and yoga sculpt classes since 2021 and loves a workout that feels like a dance party.

Marissa Paci

Yoga Teacher

Marissa found her way to the mat years ago in high school and with encouragement from a close friend and her first teacher, she stuck with the practice until she eventually fell in love with the calming affect it had on her physical body and chaotic “monkey mind”. Her classes reflect her own disposition creating a trusting and sunny space to welcome her students. Marissa’s style can be best described as challenging yet mindful. She reminds her students to think of her classes as a whole body moving meditation; a consciousness linking each physical pose with each inward breath.” Her classes leave the practitioner feeling strong and balanced. Marissa holds both her 200 and 500 hour teacher training certifications with Fluid Yoga School, as well as certifications in SPA and HEALing yoga. Marissa is forever deepening her knowledge and holds an Ayurvedic Yoga certification with Shiva Shakti Yoga School and enjoys practicing and studying Tibetan philosophy and mediation with Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman. 

 

Marissa offers both private and group classes in yoga and meditation as well as frequently hosts integrated workshops and retreats. 

 

When not teaching yoga she enjoys spending time with her husband and dog at the beach or in the woods.

Rita Goffman

Yoga Teacher

Rita found yoga after visiting Canyon Ranch for her fortieth birthday and instantly became obsessed. Focusing on her breath and adjusting her body in the poses helped quiet her mind and shift her focus to the present moment. Rita began practicing at a local studio and was inspired to complete her 200 hour training. A few years later, Rita wanted to expand her knowledge, so she completed her 300 hour training at Down Under School of Yoga in Brookline, MA. The fluidity of sun salutations and focusing on alignment when in static poses helps her find “yoga chitta vritti nirodha”…cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. Her overall goal is to help her students find a deeper connection to the body and mind when they come to her class.

Melissa Brodeur

Yoga Teacher / Massage Therapist

Melissa is the owner of Bee Well Massage & Yoga which was created with the mission to help people feel better both in body and mind, all while raising awareness about honeybees. This philosophy remains as true today as it did in 2007 when Melissa founded the company. In 2001 as Melissa went through massage school and life lessons were being thrown her way, she started practicing the idea that how we show up for ourselves is how we show up for others and the planet. Melissa believes the most consistent way to do that successfully is to feel strong in our bodies and calm in our minds. There are many tools out there to prioritize self-care, her favorites are massage, yoga, running, and sleeping.  

When Melissa is not massaging or teaching yoga, you can find her at a concert or spending time with her partner, Chris, and her Great Dane, Sophia.   

 

In 2021 Melissa took her personal yoga practice to the next level and completed a 200hr YTT program. In 2022 she was recognized as the Best Massage Therapist in the 207. Melissa is excited to bring her yoga and massage services to Kennebunk Wellness Collective where she will be offering yin/vinyasa yoga classes and workshops as well as massage therapy.  She has worked with people of all ages, races, genders, and fitness levels, all are welcome.

Alex Michaud

Yoga Teacher 

Alex Michaud-Duncombe grew up in Bangor, Maine. It was there she found her love of movement through dance. Alex has been practicing yoga for 12 years alongside her modern dance education. She received her BA in Dance and French from Connecticut College and has danced and practiced in many beautiful shalas in her travels around the world. During Covid, she found yoga to be more than just a physical practice, and sought safety and solace on her mat. It was the healing power of this practice during that time that drew Alex to wanting to share with others.

 

Alex received her 200 hour certification through East West Yoga in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia in early 2023. Humbled by her teachers and teachings there, and a forever student herself, Alex is beyond excited to share this practice with others and to continue to learn and grow with her students. 

 

Off the mat, Alex enjoys immersing herself in nature, getting lost in a good book, traveling without itineraries, being in her garden, and spending time with her family and friends. She can’t wait flow with you.
