Event details

3 Yoga Teacher Amigos Come Together At The Haven

To Offer A Variety Of Ongoing Classes And Workshops


Michael Cooper, Joy Alexander, and Suzanne Dufresne are uniting at one location to offer a variety of ongoing Yoga classes and related workshops.  We want to build a stronger and healthier community. If we have not met you yet, we are welcoming you to join us for some or all of our new classes at The Haven Hotel & Spa.  

Beginning Monday February 4 we are making Yoga accessible to all by offering a wide variety of morning and afternoon classes for all levels. Between the 3 of us we have over 30 years teaching experience....we believe Yoga is a rejuvenating and healing practice.  We'd like each class you take with us to make you feel like you just spent the day at the Spa!

Some comments from the Teachers...

Michael...."Over my many years of practicing and teaching, I have witnessed over and over that a regular Yoga practice dramatically slows the aging process and strengthens bodies and minds, to levels in many cases we did not know existed."

Joy...."Yoga heals. No matter how we come to the practice, it is a practice that helps us heal and become stronger…  facilitating wholeness.”

Suzanne..."Being able to witness the transformation of my students as they dive deeper into their practice is my biggest joy of teaching. I feel both honored and humbled to be able to guide them on their journey as my students have always been my greatest teacher."

Gentle Hatha Yoga

Tuesday —  8:30 am

Instructor: Joy Alexander

Get an early start, and make it a great day!  Wake up the body with this gentle yoga class that is great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style.  Focus is on breath-awareness and conscious movement with the goals of: building and maintaining strength, developing functional flexibility, and establishing a connected body-mind-breath awareness.  Accessible to all levels.  Blocks, straps, etc. provided. 

Yoga Sculpt

Tuesday  — 11:30 am

Instructor: Suzanne Taliano Dufresne

An all levels class will bring a mix of Yoga postures and a combination of core work, Barre and Body Sculpting using light hand weights that will help us explore ways to take our individual practices deeper. We will practice with strengthening and conditioning exercises while deepening the connection we have with the postures we've come to know so well (i.e. planks, warriors, balancing postures, downward facing dog and chaturanga). Lengthen, strengthen, tone and define with this fun yoga practice.

Vinyasa Flow

Wednesday — 11:30 am

Instructor: Joy Alexander

A fun, challenging vinyasa-style class based on the Ashtanga series will keep you moving, and energize the body! Build strength and increase flexibility, while powering your practice with conscious breathing.  This class is open to all levels, with modifications provided to encourage you to work at your own pace.

Yoga for EveryBODY

Thursday — 4:00 pm

Instructor: Joy Alexander

A slow-to-moderate mix of Hatha & Vinyasa styles — good for beginners, as well as intermediate.  In this class, postures are practiced to align, stretch, strengthen, and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques are also integrated. Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals, as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers.

Align and Refine 

Friday — 11:30 am

Instructor: Suzanne Taliano Dufresne

With a strong focus on alignment and form, this yoga class will make your practice more efficient and help prevent injury. You will be guided through a practice that will help you cultivate strength and flexibility through mindful transitions and by building each pose from the ground up. You will learn to explore ways the pose can work in your body rather than how to get your body into the pose.

Therapeutic Yoga

Saturday — 9:00 am 

Instructor: Suzanne Taliano Dufresne

A therapeutic class that focuses on the body as a whole (physical, psychological, and spiritual) to bring you back to balance. Class will consist of therapeutic techniques to help bring relief to chronic pain, injury prevention, and wellness. Each class will have a theme depending on the needs of the students (ie. yoga for the spine, releasing tight muscles, shoulder and heart opening).

Yin Yoga —  Relaxing & Restorative Yoga

Sunday — 10:00 am

Instructor: Michael Cooper

If you are tired and craving energy or you’re over-stimulated and have too much energy, this all-levels class is for you. If your mind is overactive or your energy levels erratic, this class is for you. These easy floor poses gently stretch connective tissue and bring about gentle myofascial release - which is exactly what we want. This 60 minute class will leave you feeling stimulated yet relaxed, with a nice low burning energy you'll feel all day
