New Leadership at Yoga Dimensions

For almost 15 years, Yoga Dimensions has educated, inspired and supported the greater Newtown community through the ancient practice of yoga. Lynda Weber originally opened the studio with a vision of yoga for all ages and skill levels. The schedule at the studio reflects this with offerings that include hot yoga, gentle yoga, power yoga, beginners’ yoga, restorative yoga, private sessions and yoga nidra. 

Weber’s vision will continue under new ownership beginning September 1, when experienced teachers, Kristi Gunnarshaug, Twink McKenney and Regina Lones join together to continue serving the community with quality yoga instruction. Gunnarshaug has been teaching popular vinyasa-style classes for almost 20 years. McKenney began teaching almost a decade ago after many years as a dedicated student. She offers a gentle, strengthening flow followed by deep, stress-releasing relaxation. Lones is an occupational therapist who has been working in rehab for 30 years. She began practicing yoga 18 years ago and is a skilled teacher who believes you can have fun while building the strength and flexibility needed to grow old gracefully.

Together, these three will lead a team of talented teachers and workshop presenters who will continue to offer the community a place to gather, grow and learn about yoga. The word sangha translates from the Sanskrit language as “community”. Yoga Dimensions will remain a place where people are supported and encouraged in their yoga practice and in their lives. 

Yoga Dimensions will offer their fourth 200-hour yoga teacher training program this fall. This certification is for those looking to deepen their practice or bring their gifts to the community. The three owners will co-teach an in-depth exploration of asana, breathing, anatomy, yoga philosophy and ethics plus meditation. Sessions meet on weekends (approximately two per month) from October 2018 through May 2019.
