Andrea Corazzini (Owner)
Fitness has been a passion of Andrea’s since she was a teenager. She was an athlete throughout high school and college participating in swimming, track and gymnastics. She has competed in triathlons, biathlons, road and cycling races.
After attending The University of Georgia and Suffolk University for a degree in business and entering into that field, she realized that her real passion was in the fitness industry. She became certified in personal training, spinning, group exercise, boot camps and mat Pilates. She worked at various health clubs in the Boston area, doing everything from cleaning, receptionist, trainer, teacher, and eventually, helping to open a gym with her husband, Tom Regan, owner of Regan's Motivated Fitness. This was the ultimate satisfaction as she was able to give back to others her experience and motivation. She is inspired by all of her clients. The results for each are rewarding for themselves as well as her.
She started practicing yoga and found herself drawn to it. She was able to not only connect physically, but mentally as well. She entered into this new phase of fitness for herself, but realized this was something she could pass along to others by becoming a yoga instructor. She completed her 200 hour yoga certification at Back Bay Yoga in April of 2014. She finds yoga to be physically challenging, yet at the same time, she is able to let go of the intense competitive mask she usually puts on. Yoga to her is a complete mind, body and soul experience.
Andrea is incredibly excited to have followed her dream of opening East Side Yoga and Fitness Studio. At the studio, she will be able to give personal attention to those seeking a healthy way of living by offering yoga, personal training, and strength and conditioning classes. She truly hopes she can pass along her passion in the fitness industry to others and inspire them.
Paulina found Yoga Sculpt serendipitously; dropping into a class, unaware of what an amazing, full body workout she was about to experience. After her first class, she knew this was the workout for her. After 20 years of dancing, she was excited to find a form of exercise that engaged her whole body and fun loving spirit. Paulina finished her teaching certification in the winter of 2015 and is excited to share her love of Yoga Sculpt with her students. Be prepared to sweat, have fun and leave feeling invigorated and strong!
From the moment she first stepped on her mat nine years ago she knew yoga would play a significant role in her life. Mandy was initially drawn to yoga as a fitness endeavor, though she found herself returning to her mat day after day for the mental benefits. The more she practiced, the more that feeling of calm and tranquility translated into her daily life. The mind-body connection that yoga instills has taught her so much about herself and subsequently changed her perspective for the better. She has gained a true sense of contentment and is more appreciative of everyone and everything in her life. Mandy hopes to guide her students on their own path to enlightenment and help them find the same inner peace that the practice of yoga gave her.
Ashley has been practicing yoga for many years sharing her practice with family and friends. She deepened her practice through Health Yoga Life’s 200 hour teacher training program. In addition to yoga, Ashley has a passion for running, completing 6 Marathons and always training for the next. She uses the practice of yoga to keep her body healthy and her mind at ease. She brings a fun upbeat persona to her classes, often adding a gentle challenge. She feels fulfilled seeing students leave with a smile, knowing they have gained both the mental and physical benefits the practice has to offer!
Colleen starting practicing yoga in 2009 to find stillness in her busy life. She found it quickly, in her very first class, along with so much more. For Colleen, yoga is a lot more than a physical practice and she takes the balance she finds on her mat into her daily life becoming more mindful and content. Always a student, Colleen continues to learn more about herself through her yoga practice everyday. She teaches a power class, encouraging her students to explore their edge and strives to share her love of yoga and mindfulness.
Nicole is Boston-based yoga teacher (RYT-200), Certified Health and Wellness Coach, amateur chef and community health advocate who currently works in chronic disease prevention at the Boston Public Health Commission. Nicole stumbled upon yoga after after feeling lost in the fitness world for 10 years due to teenage knee injuries that put an early end to her days as a high school athlete. She soon learned that yoga was much more than exercise as she became more calm, grounded and learned how powerful breath can be. Her yoga classes are fun, upbeat, intentional and open to all levels and abilities. Nicole loves real food, good wine, deep breaths and high fives.
In addition to being a triathlete, Rebecca is always looking for new and exciting ways to channel her enthusiasm for life and activity around the world. From rock climbing to playing tennis, and from strength training to playing the piano; she finds that yoga brings the perfect balance to her everyday life. After 12 years of practicing yoga, she is consistently inspired by the strength, balance, and calm achieved through breath and asana. Rebecca received her 200 hour teacher certification from Back Bay Yoga, and 100 hours in Yoga Therapy through Soulful Yoga Therapy.

Jacqueline (JACKIE) Bath
Jackie stumbled upon Yoga Sculpt after a knee injury left her unable to endure any high impact exercises. Sculpt physically challenged her while still being kind to her knees. After a year of taking classes, she decided to pursue her fitness passion and became a certified Balanced Body Barre and Pilates Mat instructor and CorePower Yoga Sculpt instructor. Jackie teaches a fun yet challenging choreography. Her hope is that you leave class feeling stronger, both mentally and physically.
Audrey began practicing in 2010 and was instantly hooked. Yoga helped her to feel grounded and connected like nothing else, and her yoga practice has only grown since. Audrey's classes are always focused on breath. In vinyasa, she tries to strike a balance between challenging sequences that cultivate strength and mobility, and restorative postures that soften and soothe the nervous system. When teaching yin and restorative, she tries to guide students into an extended meditative state. Audrey draws from her experiences as a dancer, an emotional, truth seeking human being, and an introvert to cultivate an environment that is comfortable and welcoming to everyone, new student or long time practitioner.
Audrey only hopes that students will leave her class more aligned, seeking to expand their yoga practice. www.audreytesserot.com

As a physical educator, Nikki’s goal each and everyday is to not only make wellness attainable for all, but fun and differentiated. Being an athlete her entire life, she knew she wanted to work in the wellness world and the stars aligned for her to become a Boston Educator.
Nikki took a deep dive into the world of yoga when she knew she wanted it in her curriculum. There is nothing in the world that brings her more joy than teaching children yoga. If you haven’t seen a 7 year old take bakasana for the first time, you haven’t experienced pure joy. During the summer of 2018 she decided to enroll in a 200 hr YTT through YogaWorks, and her next step is to now share this incredible practice with more humans, big & small.
