Evelynn completed the Gokul Yoga 200 Hour Hatha-Vinyasa Teacher Training in 2017 under the tuleage of Mahayogi Jani Jaatinen and Masley Yahya at Gokul Yoga, Malaysia. Ever grateful for their teachings and the love of yoga they imparted, she continues her yogic journey on and off the mat.
As a teacher, Evelynn believes that the benefits of yoga are accessible to all regardless of age, ability and background. Her classes are based on precise alignment and the use of props to prevent injury, bandhas for increased steadiness, and pranayama for harmony. Each class is an opportunity to energize, to build strength, and flexibility, develop a greater sense of self awind in a awareness, relieve stress, and quiet the restless mind in a heartfelt, compassionate way.
Outside of yoga, Evelynn is a devoted wife and mother, enjoys kayaking, art and the study of human, anatomy and physiology as they relate to health, healing and bodywork
Melody grew up in The Slate Belt but spent most of her adult life overseas. A big chunk of her time was spent in Ethiopia, where she worked with a non-profit organization as well as an international preschool. She first was introduced to yoga in the preschool where she took her first yoga class, then had the opportunity of teaching it to the children at the school. When her and her fiancé decided to move back to the US and get married, she turned to Yoga to help her deal with the stress and anxiety of changing countries. She began to use Meditation and Yoga to help process some of her challenging and at times traumatic experiences overseas, which had started to manifest in her life as Anxiety and Depression. With the help of yoga, meditation and a little therapy, she was able to manage all the symptoms of she was experiencing! Throughout this process she became obsessed with learning more about why and how this practice worked so well! This investigation led her to enter into yoga teacher training. Where she hopes to be able to share what she has discovered and the incredible practice of Yoga with others!

Hello, my name is Chelsea McMahon and I am a recent recipient of 200 Hour RYT at Boundless Yoga. I have a BA in French Language with a minor in psychology and a lifelong interest in the arts, travel, and trying new things. Both in my physical and mental practice I have been tuning into my inner voice and finding creative ways to use movement as it relates to overall state of being. I love to blend dance and spontaneity with traditional postures, attention to muscular sensations, and working with the breath. Yoga can be found in a million ways and as a teacher, I will only show you what I’ve experienced for me.
As an artist, I love sharing my passions and creativity with people. So naturally, as I evolve deeper into my yoga practice I need to share it.
When I first starting yoga, I began with the meditations and spiritual aspects of the practice. Unfortunately, I started battling depression and lost the foundation of yoga. I used the mediations as a mental crutch then moved into a physical practice as a way to overexercise and hurt my body. It wasn't until I hit rock bottom, that I was able to see how I warped such a beautiful practice into something that brought me so much pain. So I made the decision to re-educate myself. To learn what Yoga is beyond the crutch I made it out to be. How to be kind and gentle to my mind, body, and soul. This decision has transformed my life and allowed for a much deeper personal growth.
You can expect a non-judgmental teaching style and compassion-centered philosophy around my classes. My flows will be gentle and focus on the integrity of the poses within the practice. To help you build the yogi relationship between the mind, body, and breath. To me, yoga is freedom and release. I want to help you find that too.
I've been practicing yoga since 2010 and completed my 200-hour Teacher Training from Serenity Yoga Studio in Hackettstown, NJ. I am continuing my education at Boundless Yoga Studio with the Mental Health Sensitivity Intensive and Trauma Informed Training in April and The Yin Yoga Approach Advanced Studies in July.

Kate DeAngelo (200RYT) Earned her Bachelors in English Journalism in 2004, and proceeded to go on to earn her Masters in Secondary Education in 2011. Working her way through graduate school at Borders books enabled her to constantly share her passion with other people. In October of 2011 she became a mother to Charlie. Her life shifted in a major way, while being a Paralegal allowed her to be flexible enough care for her son as he attended daycare and preschool, she was looking for something more. As his fifth birthday approached she decided to make the first step to return to the teaching world, she signed up for Yoga Teacher Training.
Unlike her M.Ed. Kate felt that her Yoga Teacher Training left her with more questions then answers. “It has just opened so many doors to so many ways of learning and moving that I didn’t even know existed, now I want to know more about all of it”. Looking to continue her education immediately she signed up for SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) Yoga Teacher Training. It was the perfect opportunity to take her knowledge in to the out doors, as she enjoys hiking and camping with her family.
Kate loves to use music and breath to influence her movements, “When I taught poetry I brought music into the classroom to keep it relevant for my students, I want to do the same thing for my Yoga students”. Kate also enjoys the exploration process that Yoga can allow, “I love that I can move my body in ways I never thought possible, and it comes from experimenting with your own edge and seeing where you can go”.
