Alaina Murphy took her first yoga class at age 17 and was deeply moved by the freedom the practice created in her body, as well as fascinated by the body’s ability to heal and transform.  After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, she studied various methods of yoga including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Shadow, Forrest, and Anusara.  Her love for yoga and anatomy just kept  growing and growing.  Alaina received her yoga Teacher Certification within the Anusara Yoga program in 2008.  She continued on to study the Pilates system the following year, becoming a  Certified Pilates Instructor, and has been teaching full time ever since.

Alaina moved back from California to her home town of Guilford, Vermont in 2011 and opened Inner Heat Yoga in 2012. As owner and director of IHY, it is Alaina’s dream come true to share her passion with others and to be a part of this nurturing community and it just keeps growing and evolving, reaching new heights. She now lives in Brattleboro with her husband, Mark and her two daughters, Fiona & Iris.

Alaina teaches a unique flowing Vinyasa class, which focuses on connecting with the breath and expanding it, as a tool to deepen the practice.  As well as utilizing subtle core and proper alignment to create more ease and strength within each pose and transition.


Niki Fletcher has been a student of yoga since 2005.  It was introduced as a way to help heal injury and over the years she learned the multitude of ways that yoga can heal.  In 2011 Niki went on to complete her first vinyasa teacher training as well as studying Yin Yoga at Omega Institute.  Currently she is immersed in an Internationally Accredited Yoga Therapy training program through Phoenix Rising where she is working towards IAYT status herself.  She is currently a certified Yoga Therapist and Life Mentor.  “Our bodies have a story to tell and often we get lost in the demands of a busy life and forget to listen to it.”  Yoga has helped her to connect to the true purpose of life.  Using yoga as a means to help others reconnect with their inner wisdom to empower and find harmony in life on and off the mat.  Her vinyasa classes are designed to build strength,  cultivate flexibility and find balance all while encouraging the practitioner to listen to their body and move with their breath in order to find a truly self- supportive practice.  There is opportunity to challenge yourself as well as time to allow space for what you really need in class and in life.  All classes are interwoven with elements of Yoga Therapy.
