Melanie Harrington       

Melanie began practicing yoga more than 10 years ago, when she was pregnant with her oldest daughter. Now a mother of four, she continues to come to her yoga mat daily to strive for a sense of equanimity in her practice and her life. The realization that yoga is something to practice daily, both on and off the mat, has helped her to put things down, let things go, live in the moment and most importantly, to breathe. She is truly grateful to all her teachers in yoga and in life who have inspired and encouraged her along this journey.

Melanie completed her training with Kevan Gale at Stil Studio in Dedham, MA for her 500 hour certification in Fluid Yoga. She is assisting him in the 200 and 500 hour training. She received her 200 hour yoga certification in Fluid Yoga with Kevan.  She also received a 200 hour yoga certification at Back Bay Yoga, in Boston. Melanie is a certified massage therapist, a ChildLight Yoga instructor, and a licensed and registered occupational therapist with a degree from the University of New England, in Biddeford, ME.   

Melanie lives in Holliston, MA with her husband, Jamie, and their four children.

Jamie Harrington

Jamie was introduced to yoga several years ago by his wife Melanie, a long-time yoga practitioner. He'd once thought yoga was not for him and felt intimidated by the practice, but after a couple of private lessons he'd overcome his insecurities and was hooked. He realized yoga was about more than just the physical asana poses; it was a spiritual practice and furthermore a lifestyle he wanted to adapt. He started the 200 hour Fluid Yoga teacher training program at Stil Studio in Dedham, MA as a form of personal enrichment and exploration, but discovered a love for teaching. Jamie appreciates that yoga is a journey, with no finish line in sight and with endless opportunities to learn and grow. He loves to share his life experiences and insights with others through his teaching. 

Jamie has an MBA from Northeastern University and currently works full-time as a software consultant. He resides in Holliston with his wife Melanie, and their 4 beautiful children. In his spare time he enjoys running, traveling, spending time with his family and serving as vice president of the Harrington household.

Daniela Cimino

Daniela has enjoyed practicing yoga since she first took a lunchtime yoga class at work. Thanks to the guidance of kind and compassionate teachers over the years, she developed a deep appreciation for how a dedicated yoga practice could invigorate the body and calm the mind. She enrolled in the 200-hour Fluid Yoga teacher training program to learn and explore, and with encouragement and support from some wonderful people in her life, she found herself teaching. Daniela would like to share the positive effects of a holistic yoga practice — one that touches mind, spirit, and body — through a Vinyasa flow that links the breath with mindful movement. She hopes to help others use their time on the mat to cultivate their own inner balance — to see beyond the physical poses and what their bodies can or can't do and practice with gratitude and freedom from worry and distraction. Ultimately, she hopes that the peaceful and steadying effect of practicing from a calm place and with an open heart becomes a positive force of energy that everyone can take with them into their lives off the mat.
