Brittany | Studio Owner | Yoga Teacher | Reiki Master | Inspirational Speaker | Intuitive | Fire Dancer
Magical Yoga studio owner Brittany Boles is an intuitive, a yoga teacher, reiki master, and inspirational speaker who has been leading groups and mentoring individuals since 2012.
From founding an international nonprofit organization to partnering with New Hampshire schools, Brittany has cultivated compassion, inspiration, and healing throughout her professional life.
Her yoga teacher training (after ten years of personal practice) confirmed yoga as a vehicle for unlocking the potential of the human spirit. Yoga is the seat of meditation, and it is here that one has access to the Higher Self and pure potentiality of the universe.
Passion for writing and speaking compliments Brittany’s services. In addition to flow classes, she leads original guided meditations and Yoga Nidra journeys and offers inspirational events and workshops for audiences of all ages.
A powerful personal story and vast life experience make for a perspective that is all Brittany; with honesty, empathy, and an unapologetic commitment to the idea that we get to create our own story, she leads by example.
“You get to choose. We all make choices every day that shape our lives; what kind of life do you want to live?”
Rhonda | Yoga Teacher | Forrest Enthusiast | Runner | Believer
Rhonda began her journey into the healing magic of yoga in March of 2005 after a hamstring injury interrupted her running practice. This first introduction was to the yoga practice of Power Vinyasa, which Rhonda enjoyed immensely and found it significantly healed her hamstring injury. Then, in the Fall of 2007 discovered Forrest Yoga and she fell in love, and quickly signed up for the Forrest Yoga Teacher Training and completed that 28-day intensive training in August 2008. Rhonda has now been dedicated to sharing the journey of Forrest Yoga for 9 years.
“Yoga invites the practitioner into a vast offering of benefits that enhance the human experience”, says Rhonda. “I could not have imagined how powerfully this practice would expand my life, yet each rewarding layer comes through gentle invitation that I have found irresistible. It offers fantastic benefits to one’s physical health, but it does not stop there. Yoga is accessible to anyone at any age and at any capability. Forrest Yoga, I find, is particularly strengthening and soothing to both the body and spirit.”

Jennifer Murphy | Registered Yoga Teacher | School Counselor | Ashtanga-Lover
Jennifer started her journey with yoga in 1998 at O2 Yoga in Portsmouth, NH under the instruction of Mimi Loureiro. Here, she was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga, which is based on the eight-limbed path of Patanjali. This philosophy incorporates poses (asanas), ethical standards, self-discipline, breath, withdrawal of the senses, and concentration while bringing awareness of these ideas into your daily life off the mat. In the spring of 2009, she took her first Forrest Yoga class with Stacey Gibbons at Earth and Sky Yoga. In 2012, Jennifer graduated from the 200-hour Yoga New Hampshire Teacher Training Program through the Living Yoga Studio in Concord, NH, under instructor Maureen Miller. She enjoys the benefits and challenges of practicing Ashtanga Yoga. As a school counselor, Jennifer’s days are spent attending to the needs to others; a work that is satisfying, yet can be profoundly draining. Yoga not only bestows a sense of physical well being, but restores her to a sense of grounding and connectedness. Jennifer lives in Effingham, NH with her husband Tom, and two four-legged children.
