About

ninakirtan.jpgNina Vecchi is a life long musician. Since a very young age she intuitively connected with music and song. She has composed original folk and kirtan music and uses spirit to guide her in playing cosmic music through crystal and Himalayan singing bowls and gongs. Her first love continues to be guitar music though she has come to enjoy percussion and harmonium instrumentals.

Nina enjoys helping others find their voice and supports local musicians through kirtan and "Sacred Sound Journeys" along with monthly sound healing events at various venues. She also facilitates a weekly Kundalini yoga class where students are encouraged to find their true inner selfs through yoga, mantra, and breath work.

Nina holds certificates in the following:

  • Sound Healing Therapies (400 hour certification)
  • Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher 
  • Reiki II
  • Level IV VSM (vibrational sound massage)
  • Acoutinics Level 3
  • Touch For Health
  • Shamballa Energy Healing

She attends regular workshops and classes in various healing and sound modalities that compliment her practice.

Nina's other passions include outreach for a compassionate world through organizing World Peace Diet events, vegan cooking classes, and ahimsa yoga events.  She is a certified World Peace Diet facilitator.

mike.jpgMichael Vecchi is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT500) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS). I completed my initial training at Frog Pond Yoga Centre – Princeton, MA in the classical and traditional Raja Yoga. The practices of Raja Yoga place emphasis on integration of breath, body and mind to promote spiritual growth.

I started the yoga practice for stress reduction and physical therapy which developed into a great passion for yoga and learning about the practice. My passion has evolved over the years and continues to grow as I integrate the “Yoga” practice into my life and daily activities. I am also a graduate of the “Hits The Spot Yoga Advanced Teacher Training 500-hour Certification Program” registered with Yoga Alliance. I studied at Solar Hill Yoga in Brattleboro Vermont with Scott Willis along with another wonderful group of “Yogis” from the area. Scott draws on his years of teaching and study along with his primary influences of Anusara, Kripalu, Iyengar Style, and Insight Meditation.

Mike uses techniques from all of them in his yoga curriculum. If you can breathe, you can do yoga. There is no competition in Yoga each person works at the best of their ability.
