The Private Yoga Team

Allison Hodge draws from a variety of styles and techniques and her sessions provide insight on how the practice of yoga can work for you. A session may include therapeutics, strength building, yin, core work, props, restorative, hands on assist and breath awareness – all infused into an alignment based vinyasa or hatha based class. Whether you are looking to learn more about yoga, develop a home practice or heal ailments, you will leave feeling empowered, awakened and balanced.

Erin Gillmore was a New York City fashion student in 2006 when she discovered yoga. After getting hooked on Yoga to the People’s Vinyasa flow style, she relocated to San Francisco in 2011 and completed their 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) training. Erin has continued to evolve her practice by studying Bhakti flow with Rusty Wells, and she will soon have 500 hours of training under her belt. This past year she has become addicted to arm balances and inversions which she works into most classes. As she puts it, she “found a lifeline out of crazy” through yoga, and wants nothing more than the opportunity to extend that lifeline to others.

Bridget Kavanaugh began a yoga practice in 2005 and found such joy, passion and growth in the connection, she wanted to share that with others. She has now been teaching for over 8 years and continues to be a student of the endless yoga journey. Her classes are first and foremost pranayama (breath) focused. From there, Bridget offers a more vigorous class which draws upon flow, strength and alignment. Her hope and intention is for students to leave the mat having awareness of at least one new life learning – physical, emotional or spiritual.

Marie Murphy strives to give students the opportunity to recognize the infinite capacity for physical, spiritual, and emotional change that lies within them, and the opportunity to claim the joy that comes with these discoveries. Marie meets each student where they are and offers an experience based on the student’s state of being in the moment. Whether working through a particular challenge or injury, interested in refining your practice, or in the mood for being led through an uplifting class that is devoted specifically to your needs.

Kevin Hibbitt began teaching Vinyasa and Restorative yoga in 2003. His style is influenced by his foundation in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, his study of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and his work as a psychotherapist. Kevin holds yoga as a practice that invites us to explore and transform the fabric of the mind and body as well as emotional experience. He is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working in private practice and with adolescents in acute inpatient treatment.
