Mid-September Teacher Feature: Bett Zamparelli

Teaching at O2 Since: 2015 Bett’s Thoughts on Primary Series: “I LOVE IT! The Ashtanga practice in general is such a growth-oriented series where the fixed sequencing allows the practitioner really to engage mindfully with their own practice and where they are at, both physically and mentally, at that particular moment. Primary Series, in particular, emphasizes the idea of progressive sequencing, where the next pose builds on the previous. The immediate right-left nature per asana (traditionally with a vinyasa in between) allows...

September Teacher Feature: Emily Reardon

Teaching at O2 Since: 2012 Emily’s Thoughts on Primary Series: “I love the Astanga months because they remind us of O2’s roots. I really like Primary’s introverted poses and am in need of them after a hectic summer. For so many of us, summer is fun but scattered and we all need to reel it back in.”   Emily’s Current Teaching Schedule: Somerville 12pm Tuesdays – Basics 12pm Wednesdays – Intermediate     We have two fabulous Emilys on our teaching staff, but today we are getting to...

A Letter to the O2 Yoga & VO2 Vegan Cafe Community from Mimi

Dear O2 and VO2 Family & Friends, First and foremost, thank you for being part of the dream that our family has built over the past 20 years. Steven, Dylan, Deven, and I have always done things as a family. We travel together, work together, play together, learn together, and get through difficulties together. We believe in doing everything with thoughtfulness, conviction, consistency, and most importantly, love. You may or may not know that my son Dylan has been battling cancer since he was 12-years-old. Three and a half years later, we...

Mid-August Teacher/Staff Feature: Cemile Marsan

Doing Workstudy at O2 Since: 2012 Cemile’s Thoughts on Koundinyasana: “It looks so fancy! I admit it was a ‘dream pose’ for me for a long time. I actually remember the first time I managed to this pose (in the Somerville studio) — I guess my surprise and suspicion of whether I had actually successfully managed it was obvious because the instructor commented on the confused yet enthusiastic face I had. Last year (I believe it was also when Koundinyasana was pose of the month), I had the exact experience but in the...

August Teacher Feature: Devon Wilson-Hill

Teaching at O2 Since: 2008 Devon’s Thoughts on Koundinyasana Month: “I remember watching a student do this pose when I was just beginning my practice. It looked so fun! At this point, I couldn’t do Half Moon. But in a year, I could do Koundinyasana.  Revolved Triangle is another of my favorite poses. So is Fallen Warrior or ‘Hippie Warrior’ as Mimi calls it. You could say I’m all about IT band hip stretches. And Koundinyasana is all of that in the air! Taking off! Totally awe inspiring.” Devon’s...
