About the Teachers
Kevan Gale is co-owner of Stil Studio in Dedham, MA, and established Fluid Yoga enrichment programs to help those pursuing dynamic happiness in life and work. His own “dynamic happiness” owes much to his role as husband to wife Stacy and father to three wonderful children; his passion for swimming, cycling and yoga; and his development as a burgeoning photographer. Kevan’s teachings are marked by his ability to share advanced yoga philosophies in simple, modern terms that resonate with students of all abilities. He is eternally grateful for his heart teacher, Lama Migmar, who has guided him on his spiritual journey. Practice with Kevan at Stil Studio, Fluid Yoga or online at Soundcloud or Youtube.
Betty believes in embracing life and all it’s imperfections as a catalyst for change. Since 2009, when she transformed from fashionista to “yogaista” and co-founded Stil Studio in greater Boston, Betty has been on a mission to change her perception of the world and help others reach their greatest potential inside and out.
For six years prior, Betty owned and operated Stil Clothing, a group of fashion stores that radically changed the way women dressed in Boston. Betty’s fashion boutiques were honored with Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” award several times throughout their operation, and she was voted Best Dressed in Boston by The Boston Globe and Fashion Boston Magazine.
Her interest and trainings in Thai Massage Yoga assisting led to her create the super-luscious SPA class, as well as workshops and trainings to bring SPA love to yogis seeking a blissful experience both near and far.
Betty’s love for fashion sparked Mecca, a place where yoga + fashion meet. Her yoga mat bag line has been featured in the Boston Globe and can be found at Stil Studio and SCLA.
She is also involved in keeping the glue on The Fluid Yoga Sangha by fostering a sense of togetherness and community.
Casa Om has 10 beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a spacious and well equipped yoga room, swimming pool, a rooftop dining area and 2 kitchens.
