Meet Our Online Instructors:

David Corder – Through my many years and varied experiences, I have learned that health and wellness are the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. I often thought each of my careers had nothing to do with the other. I now realize they all have been leading me to a more complete awareness of myself.  I now know I can help you learn how to achieve the best “YOU” that you can be.
     As we age, we are given a great opportunity to learn and improve all aspects of our lives. My goal is to continue learning and to teach the importance of constantly working on ourselves in Body, Mind and Spirit.
     I truly believe we can find a path together.

Lindel Hart’s teaching and practice are greatly influenced by his study with many Iyengar teachers, but his approach to yoga often takes a decidedly personal spin. Merging the classic and the contemporary helps him keep his teaching fresh and insightful, balancing an emphasis on anatomical integrity with compassion, joy, enthusiasm and humor. Through his focused sequences of poses and individualized instruction, he conveys his knowledge and experience of yoga to beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Lindel operated his own studio, Hart Yoga, in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, from 2009 to 2017, where he taught a wide variety of classes and workshops. He has served as the yoga instructor at Deerfield Academy since 2009, where he works with many athletic teams, offers classes to the entire school community,  and teaches daily yoga classes each term to a group of students as an alternative to participating in sports.

His teaching credits include Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the Nantucket Yoga Festival, the Martha’s Vineyard Yoga Festival and the Slow Living Summit in Brattleboro, VT, as well as studios throughout the northeast, the mid-Atlantic region and in New York City. He is a certified yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance, E-RTY 200) and is available for private instruction.
