"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!"

Phil Donnelly has been teaching yoga since 2007. After many false starts and stabs at many different types of traditions, she eventually found her fit in Iyengar Yoga. She has been studying Iyengar Yoga for 4 years. She brings a very light hearted, all-inclusive approach to her teaching. Her Irish brogue will mesmerize you! Her style of teaching is one that you won't want to miss.
Kirsty has been practicing yoga for about 10 years. She recently completed her 200-hour teacher training at the Yoga Garden in Narberth. She is deepening her practice now by studying Applied Positive Psychology and hopes to bring lessons from that to the mat and the studio. She loves the peace and positivity that yoga practice can bring. She believes that everybody can benefit from yoga, but that everyone’s practice must evolve to suit their own bodies and perspectives. Kirsty was born in London, and raised in Canada, and has lived in Newtown Square with her family for 15 years, settling down after living in Venice Beach, California; Tokyo, Japan; and Frenchtown, NJ. In her free time, she runs at Ridley Creek Park, travels whenever she can and reads - a lot. You can follow her yoga journey in photos on Instagram @truenorthyogahome.
I began my yoga journey about 6 years ago while a Classical Studies and World Religion major in college at Temple University. Since that time, I have developed a strong sense of self, a compassion for human kind, and a desire to live in the present moment. I cherish the time that I spend on my mat because it takes me to a place that allows me to reflect on my inner self. I hope to bring this same experience to my students as we develop our yoga practice together.
Rachel is a recent graduate of a Yoga Teacher Training Program. She has a BA in Classical Studies and World Religion. She is also completing her Masters of Science in Health Informatics in May 2015.
Currently she is working in project management at the University of Pennsylvania Health System. In addition to yoga, Rachel enjoys running, kettlebell training, dancing, and spending time with family and friends.
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.
On a friend’s dare, Colleen came to yoga 13 years ago as a skeptical veteran fitness instructor. She fell in love with the practice, became a Yoga Alliance 200-hour registered certified yoga teacher (RYT), and has never looked back. Her yoga studies have taken her into training and immersions with many yoga styles - Anusara, Iyengar, Ayuryoga (part of 100 hours of Ayurvedic training,) and Prana Flow. She most recently completed certification in Restorative Yoga and is also a Reiki practitioner.
As a teacher, Colleen believes that yoga should be accessible to any person of any age and fitness level. She often tells students, “Your body is your best teacher and an advanced yogi is someone who adjusts their practice every day to meet their individual needs”.
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.
A former collegiate athlete and long time runner, Eileen Smith was looking for a new way to sweat to shake up her workouts and tried Power Yoga freshman year of college. Studying to receive her Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology at Temple University; Eileen quickly found yoga helped her to gain the balance she needed physically and mentally on and off her mat. After a few classes of Power Yoga, Eileen was hooked and has never looked back. After strengthening her practice for 6 years Eileen decided to take it to the next level earning her teacher certification at Sol Yoga Studio in Conshohocken. When she is not spending time studying to become a Physicians Assistant, Eileen enjoys spending time outside hiking, biking, running, and watering her many plants.
A message from Jamie, “My yoga journey began in 2016. I had been going through a challenging time and found myself in my first hot yoga class. By the end, I felt a positive shift in mind and body, and could not wait to attend the next class! This is when I started regularly practicing yoga, and soon after, a focus shift to my Reiki practice. Since that time, I have discovered my true self, found purpose, and gained strength physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a yoga instructor, I am looking forward to giving students an experience in which they are able to take the lessons learned on the mat off into their everyday life.”
Jaimie recently received her Yoga Teacher Certification at YogaLife Institute in Wayne, PA. She began her Reiki studies in 2016 and received her Reiki Master Practitioner Certification in 2017. In addition to Yoga and Reiki, she enjoys going to the gym, exploring the city, and spending time with friends
