"Yoga practice opened the door to a peace I never knew existed. My background in fitness prepared me for yoga class, but I am astonished daily how coming to the mat deepens my breathing, strengthens my body, and most importantly expands a mindful attitude to daily life. My vision is to share this experience at NamasT. I hope you will join me!"

I began practicing yoga many years ago. I find it's one of the most efficient ways for me to meditate and balance myself mentally, physically and spiritually. I recently received my certification to teach which I was inspired to get so I could provide yoga to others and strive to give others the gift that yoga has given me in my life. There is no wrong path if you do what you love!
My name is Jen Borrowman. I am a Yoga Teacher with 20 years of experience as a Physiotherapist (Physical Therapist), and I have been living in Scotland for 28 years. I completed my Yoga Teacher training in 2011 with the British School of Yoga. I have a Masters in Russian Studies from St Andrews University in Scotland (1993) and a Bachelors in Physiotherapy from Manchester University in England (1997). I have just returned to Pennsylvania with my three daughters to live closer to my parents!
As a Teacher my aim is for people to feel both inspired and safe as they practice Yoga. My gentle physical and verbal adjustments allow students to challenge themselves while preventing injury. The non-judgmental environment in my classes helps students use kindness towards their bodies. I teach self-awareness, so my students can discover where they need more strength or more flexibility. Creating space in body and mind and listening to their breath as a guide, people in my classes can find patience, compassion, calm steadiness and trust in themselves.
Alex began her journey into yoga 3 years ago as a way to compliment her strength training and running workout regimen as well as clearing her mind mentally. She soon fell in love with the practice of yoga especially focusing on the breath and the messages she received throughout the practice which led her to use off the mat as well.
In the spring of 2016, Alex completed her 200-hour teacher training through Dana Hot Yoga. She is certified in Vinyasa and Restorative yoga.
Melissa has been an avid practitioner of yoga for 20 years and recently received her 200hr RYT from Verge. Melissa grew up with fitness enthusiast parents and believes strongly in movement, of any kind, for your entire life. She has been teaching fitness classes since 2014.
Melissa has a Masters in Genetics from The University of Pennsylvania where she met her husband, Andy. Together they have three (she says 'naughty'; he says 'rambunctious') boys and live in a very loud house in Wayne. She enjoys cooking (in quiet), travel, and movies.
Laura Knarr has recently received her 200 hour teacher training certification at Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. Profoundly touched by the philosophy and spiritual teachings interwoven into Yoga and meditation, her passion in life was ignited by the love and strength she found throughout her dedication to the practice.
Once living a life dictated by anxiety and depression, Laura has since learned to reconnect with her true self and heal old wounds through her Yoga practice. Now she is a strong advocate for embracing our “flaws” and shortcomings in life—for they are our greatest teachers, and never anything to be ashamed of!
With an open heart and open mind, Laura is passionately inspired to assist others on their own paths of self-discovery and healing. She is ready to go wherever the wind blows her on this exciting path of spreading loving awareness as a Yoga instructor, and hopes you’ll join her for the ride!
Mary Thompson (RYT-200), a native Californian, first discovered yoga in 2000 as a way to keep her balanced throughout her career in federal law enforcement. Since then, Mary’s practice has become her foundation for well-being both on and off the mat. With a strong desire to both deepen her practice and share the gifts yoga has given her, Mary completed a Hatha-focused Yoga Teacher Training at Leela Yoga in Alameda, CA. She brings a compassionate and nurturing feel to her classes, and creates and holds a safe space for her students to experience yoga as a gateway for transformation and growth, helping students to find their individual paths towards a healthy mind, body and spirit. Mary especially delights in sharing yoga as prayer in motion and making yoga accessible to all ages. Off the mat, you’ll find Mary exploring her new home-state of Pennsylvania and, in all ways, striving to create compassionate community.
