Flow and Restore
The perfect balance. Breath. Movement. Relaxation. A joyful vinyasa flow with attention to breath to warm and tone the body with traditional yoga poses followed by calming, therapeutic restorative poses to soften the body, mind and open the heart.
Slow, powerful, mindful movement with breath. Basic poses to release tension and ease the mind, calm the nervous system and brighten the heart. A perfect hour of release.
Breathe, relax and connect to your body with compassion and kindness through each movement. Learn that slowing down and paying attention is powerful medicine and the heart of yoga. Find mindfulness in motion leaving you rejuvenated and relaxed.
Learn the basics with a smile…and then learn them again and again and again. This class is for the first time yogi and the experienced yogi. No judgement. No expectation. Just you, your body and breath moving slowly, gently and mindfully. You will never regret it.
Relax and Restore
Just be. A powerful, gentle and simple practice using bolsters, blocks and supported postures to bring the body back to balance. Focus on your breath and guided visualizations to harmonize the mind, body and heart.

Katie enjoys all forms of yoga and her heart was drawn to the deep healing of restorative yoga as a way to cope and find resilience with the many challenges that life can bring. By supporting the body with props in simple, yet deeply therapeutic poses, linked with slow, mindful breathing, Katie found that by being still, she could truly experience the true essence of healing and heart opening.
Katie inspires her students to awaken and reconnect daily to their bodies through gentle, mindful movement that encourages physical, mental and emotional well-being. She empowers students to cultivate mindful awareness that restores balance and healing on and off the mat. With advanced degrees in psychology and conflict resolution and her passion for restorative yoga, Katie hopes to encourage a journey back to the heart of what truly matters to each individual through this ancient practice of connecting body, mind and breath. Katie feels grateful every day that it is her job to lead others towards their unique path of health and happiness.

Yoga is union, love and gratitude. North Shore Restorative Yoga was born from the love, discipline and respect of Armand Merghart and Katie Schroeder. They are forever grateful to each other and for the practice of yoga that united their spirits and ignited the alchemy and creativity of true love inspiring the creation of NSRY. Armand, a visionary, fierce mind and huge heart, was inspired by Katie’s teaching, adventurous heart and yearning to share the light of yoga into the world. Armand was able to embody and truly see the intention of Katie’s true purpose as a master teacher and healer. Katie believed whole-heartedly in Armand’s talent to bring dreams into reality. They stoked the fire in each other to create a center for healing and light, a space that honored their journey of love that mirrors a dedicated yoga practice; joy, pain, courage, vulnerability, transformation and love. Armand and Katie continue to grow, dream and commit to a daily gratitude practice and are incredibly thankful for all of their blessings.
North Shore Restorative Yoga is grateful for all the love and support that inspires and creates a yoga healing arts studio. Here we honor those who have supported us along the way!
