Brenda began teaching fitness classes in 2005. She is a Certified Mad Dogg Spinning Instructor and has completed YogaFit’s Level 1 & 2, BodyArt Teacher Training, and Exhales’s 40 hour comprehensive Barre Certification. Brenda’s passion for movement started at an early age with gymnastics, dance and swimming and then moved into group sports during her teen years. She loved competing in sports like lacrosse and field hockey and always found a way to incorporate exercise into her day well after her high school years. Brenda and her husband, David, raised their two boys on the island and have been year round residents on the Vineyard for over 30 years. Free time is spent hiking, gardening, traveling and creating delicious, healthy food. She has cultivated lasting friendships with people of all ages through the connection of movement and is grateful to be able to support and encourage people to become a healthier version of themselves. Brenda believes ‘being fit’ has no final destination but is a lifelong journey that takes commitment, compassion and a sense of humor

Kat loves helping students find the benefits she receives from yoga. She is trained in Hatha and Yin Yoga, Yoga for arthritis, Yoga for Parkinson’s, and Chair Yoga. Kat believes anybody can enjoy the benefits of a yoga practice using modifications and/or props to make the practice their own
Jay has been active in sports for most of his life. Running was always his passion, until an unfortunate accident left him unable to continue. Sidelined from running, a friend suggested taking an indoor cycling class. Since he enjoys dancing, cycling seemed like a good fit with its high energy cardio accompanied by great beats. After taking several classes, he went a step further and became Spin Certified through Madd Dog. Originally from Saratoga Springs, New York, Jay came to the Vineyard for a friend’s wedding several years ago and never left. He enjoys connecting with nature and is an avid traveler taking every opportunity to see a new destination around the world discovering cultures from the natives. He believes that being active every day in some capacity enables individuals to have a healthy body and mind.
Sian has been teaching Yoga for over a decade. She received her 500 hour Teacher Training at Kripalu with Shiva Rea and has studied intensively with Yoga Masters Ana Forrest, Baron Baptiste, Jonny Kest, and Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa.
Vanessa has been teaching Kripalu Yoga for over a decade after receiving her 500 hour Professional Level Yoga Teacher Certification. Her practice allows her to listen to her needs throughout the day. Sometimes her energy calls for a run. Sometimes a nap beckons her. And at other times study calls to her. She feels that it’s important to tune in and honor what is most needed, not just for body but also for mind and spirit. Practice is an ever changing ongoing conversation for her. Vanessa was born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard and has raised her two children on the island as well. She left the island long enough to appreciate it and return. In addition to teaching Yoga she also works in the school system. When her busy schedule allows, she enjoys traveling, reading, drawing, writing and napping.
After twenty summers here, Abby Bender moved to the island year-round in late 2016 from Brooklyn, NY where she was the longtime director of a dance and theater center called Triskelion Arts. She is a choreographer and performing artist who produces several new short works and full shows each year. Bender is also the founding director of Built on Stilts, the Vineyard's own community dance festival, now in its 26th season. Though she has no formal training in teaching fitness, she has over 25+ years of aerobicizing and longtime experience as a dancer and movement director. Fitness undoubtedly helps her manage stress and keep her hyperactive nature in check.

Alana has been dedicated to health and wellness for 15 years. While training for a half marathon she realized she needed to strengthen her mindset and establish a breathing pattern, so she turned to yoga. After months of training and time on the mat she felt the benefits of a yoga practice. The breath work and calming effect of yoga provided the focus for her to complete the marathon. That was the moment Alana knew she needed a faithful yoga practice. She received her yoga certification from Pura Veda in Costa Rica. Since then Alana has studied at Kripalu and other schools and studios around the US and the world. Alana loves including all levels in her yoga classes, "Yoga for everybody"! Outside of the yoga studio you will find Alana doing any type of outdoor activities, especially hiking, and in her free time she loves to travel globally.
