Avery McNiff

Avery’s classes are light-hearted, strengthening, and nurturing for students of all levels. She teaches both kids and adults and enjoys bringing a sense of play into all of her classes. Avery initially came to yoga as an avid runner and it took many attempts for the practice to stick. However, upon moving back to the North Shore in 2015, she found a supportive yoga community and began to deepen her practice and uncover a greater connection with her body, breath, and spirit. She hopes to give back and share these benefits of yoga with individuals of all ages and abilities.

Avery received her 200-hour teacher training certificate with Paula Passanisi in YogaJoy Flow, a Forrest inspired practice. She is also certified in Mindfulness and Yoga for Children, Yoga for Children and Teens with Special Needs, and Trauma Informed Yoga through ChildLight Yoga.

As both an educator and kids yoga teacher,  Avery encourages youth to discover the power of their imagination, creativity, and individuality. Her classes for kids incorporate breath work, stretching, partner poses, art and reflection.
