6:00 – 7:00am: Sunrise Yoga with Lynne Filion

Lynne Filion Certified Yoga Instructor
Specialties: Children’s Yoga, Blending Yoga with Art.
Lynne began her yoga experience at the age of 12, when prompted to choose an after school activity. While other kids might have chosen dance, soccer, or horseback riding, Lynne chose to enroll in yoga classes. Lynne came to love yoga – not only for its physical benefits, but for the mental clarity and peace it brought to her. Lynne used yoga as a tool throughout her high school and college years and often found it brought the much-needed sanity she needed during that time. Although she had many times contemplated becoming certified and being able to share her joy of yoga with others, it wasn’t until after graduating college that she embarked on her teacher training journey. She became certified in Hatha Yoga and continued on to receive training in Children’s Yoga Instruction, as well.
Lynne holds her BFA in Fine Arts and works as a teaching artist, often combining her love of art and yoga in workshops, children’s courses, or summer camps. She believes in the transformative power of yoga and wishes to share the peace that it brings to her life with others. She strives to make yoga fun and accessible to any and every body and sees it as a vehicle for recovery and change in the world. Her classes incorporate relaxation and positive affirmations with the asana, always adapting to make the practice work for each individual.

Mindy Marcozzi Certified Yoga Instructor
Specialties: Restorative Yoga, Yahweh (Christian) Yoga, and Aromatherapy.
Mindy had always been athletic. As a child, she participated in gymnastics, swimming, and cheerleading, and, as a teenager and college student, she played field hockey and lacrosse. As an adult, she also coached several sports. But it wasn’t until 1998, when she was first introduced to yoga, that she discovered her true calling.
Mindy immediately fell in love with how the practice of yoga was able to connect the mind, body and soul through stilling the mind one pose at a time. She went on to complete yoga teacher training, as well as additional training in Yahweh (Christian) Yoga, Anusara Yoga’s Principals of Alignment, Restorative Yoga, and Aromatherapy. She has also received certifications from Hippocrates Health Institute and the Living Foods Institute, and has been trained as a Raw Food Chef through Alissa Cohen.
Mindy enjoys encouraging her students to grow physically and spiritually through practicing the principles of yoga, both on and off the mat.

Andrea Sarko
Certified Yoga Instructor (E-RYT)
Specialties: Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Children, and Yoga for Athletes
Andrea began studying yoga in 1995 in California, where she lived and worked as a personal trainer. She taught yoga to complement the rigorous training regimen she designed for both professional and amateur athletes. In 2000, she began a new career as a history teacher and fitness center director here in Pennsylvania, and yoga continued to be an integral part of her personal and professional life as she worked to incorporate it into the daily lives of students and faculty.
In the spring of 2010, Andrea entered the teacher training program at East Eagle Yoga. The 10-month in-depth study and practice would become the catalyst for yoga to become her daily guidepost. Her personal practice brings balance to her life as she embraces her roles as mother, partner, student and teacher. Yoga has provided the tools for her to live her life joyfully every day.
Andrea’s areas of special interest are in prenatal yoga, yoga for children, and yoga for athletes. Her prenatal classes are a great way to prepare for the marathon of pregnancy, labor and delivery. The classes focus on the mother/baby connection, lower body strength, breath work and relaxation. Yoga fosters discipline and body awareness for today’s youth. A simple yoga practice for children equips them with tools to live happily and manage the challenges of their world. The benefits of yoga for professional and amateur athletes are unparalleled in the areas of injury prevention, concentration and longevity.
Andrea finds joy in every yoga class, whether she is a student or teacher. Her teaching style provides detailed feedback and postural guidance. She enjoys teaching students of all levels in a safe and welcoming environment.

  • Friday August 28, 7:30-8:30pm: Candlelight Yoga with Noelle Hammerbacher

As the daylight, summer, and Hummingbird’s Linwood Park program come to a close, Noelle will lead you through a candlelight yoga practice focused on the moon. Moon salutations and a meditation directed at the night sky will bring you into a deep state of peace, calm, and gratitude.
All ages and experience levels are welcome, and mats are provided for those who need them. If you have a candle you would like to bring, please do.
No need to register – just come to the park. Suggested $10 donation. 50% of proceeds benefit Friends of Linwood Park.
This class will mark the close of Hummingbird’s summer program in the park. Please join us for a very special evening.
Noelle Hammerbacher Certified Yoga Instructor
Specialties: All Levels Vinyasa, Proper Alignment, and Relaxation.
At the urging of a friend, Noelle took her first yoga class about 15 years ago and was totally captivated. She was fascinated with the fact that, by simply focusing on her breath, she could empty her mind of its complex web of thoughts and just be present in the moment. When she noticed that the physical and mental benefits of yoga were beginning to benefit her life outside the studio, she decided to truly dedicate herself to regular practice.
In 2009, Noelle signed up for yoga teacher training to learn more about the philosophy of yoga and to understand why her practice had had such a profound effect on her. She learned so much during the training, and was surprised to find that she truly enjoyed sharing her yoga practice with others. In fact, her personal practice was enhanced by teaching, and this was a benefit she was not expecting.
Noelle is deeply grateful for the opportunity to share her practice with her fellow students here at Hummingbird.
