Miriam Bolkosky

miriam bolkosky webI found yoga shortly after moving to Boston almost 10 years ago. Exercise had always been a priority in my life, but had mostly left me feeling like there was something missing. Yoga filled that void with its combination of movement and philosophy. After having moved through 6 cities in less than ten years, I had lost my median and immediately found it in my yoga practice. It was what got me through the 7-year struggle with infertility - and through the many sleepless months after my wonderful twin boys' arrival 3 years ago.

I am a professional cellist, having performed in many ensembles in many cities for the last 30+ years and have enjoyed teaching cello students of all ages for almost as long. Teaching yoga has been a natural extension of that experience. My hope is to help others learn and understand how yoga can impact their lives both on and off the mat.

Spirit Bear Buzz

'Come here to fall in love with Yoga (all over again, if applicable).
If you happen to be new to yoga or want to perfect you're downward dog, I highly recommend the Intro Series -- Christy and Lali taught mine and both were supportive, knowledgable and adorable in every way...'

'...In the the few months that I've been going, I've attended classes taught by five different instructors and they've all been amazing. Most classes are an hour and a half, but they do offer an intense hour long class on Sat mornings that they call the Hour of Power. I've seriously never sweated so much in my life as I do during these classes...'

'This studio is one of the best around. I used to live down the road and took classes here regularly enough to become a studio assistant.  The heat and temperature at Spirit Bear is by far the best I have seen. A lot of placed in Boston I have been to don't seem to have it quite right.  Spirit Bear is also CLEAN!!! I hate going into a class where there are sweat puddles and hair from the previous class on the floor. I really like the instructors (who are educated and in tune) and the flow of the classes are great. I wish there were more studios like Spirit Bear in Boston.'
