Christina Portelli

Christina began her yoga practice 3 years ago in Ontario. Years of struggling with knee and shoulder injuries she was looking for alternative therapies.
After one class she felt amazing and knew she had found a cure. She moved to Fredericton in 2014 and found Dynamic as a comforting place to continue her practice. This is where she discovered Yin, her first class was was out of the ordinary (in the best way!) and she needed more. That's when she found local teacher training and immediately signed up for her 300 hr intensive program. She is extremely happy with her decision to do so and to share her love for Yin. Learning so much along with self discovery, her practice will be forever changed and she is excited for the opportunity to share what she has learned. She plans to keep training in the future and to never stop learning in the world of yoga.

Brittany Rooney

Health and Wellness has been a passion and the core foundation for most of Brittany’s life goals and choices. Her love of learning about the human body gave her two bachelor of science degrees and a career as a registered nurse. She always thought there was something else out there though that would allow her to combine her skills, education and desire to reach people on a life-changing level. Then came Yoga.
Brittany started practicing yoga daily over 6 years ago. What started as a social event became a way for her to find her breath and take some time out of her day to work through stress, anxiety and uncertainty. As an added bonus she began to notice physical changes within her own body. She became a new mom in July 2016 and needed yoga more than anything to get through all the challenges post partum brings for both the mind and body. The time off with her daughter gave her the opportunity to complete a combined 200 hr Vinyasa and Yoga in Schools YTT through Breathing Space in August 2017. From here she hopes to continue to expand her knowledge and deepen her practice.
Brittany is excited and ready to share breath, knowledge, love, light and passion with the dynamic community.

Roman Finkel

Roman began practicing yoga more than a decade ago in NYC.
After doing his 200-hour Hatha teacher training in Costa Rica, he has taught in Costa Rica, New York City, Mexico, and Fredericton. While physically demanding, Roman's classes are centered around lightness, gratitude, joy, and not taking ourselves too seriously. Roman believes in a safe, sustainable, and fun approach that focuses on alignment, breath, and present moment awareness. Roman enjoys walks on the beach, petting dogs that don't belong to him, and writing about himself in the third person.
A flowing style of postures put together to encourage the flow of energy through the body, combined with the grounding and unblocking effects of a deep stretch. Delicious:)
