About Kristi Mcneil:
"I have worked in the restaurant, hospitality, and music industries my whole life and my practice gives me the perfect balance between a chaotic professional life as well as life off the mat —a place to quiet my mind and start listening to my body. My goal is to help bring this balance to my students’ lives.
I believe in the power of moving meditation, and using breath as a guide to open and release the body. I want the practice of yoga to be accessible and personal to you, with guidance in how to soften the edges of our physical, and energetic bodies.
I teach a restorative flow every Monday night at Be. In Union, Somerville 7:45-9pm and lead week-long retreats annually in Panama, a place that is very special to me. Looking forward to meeting you on your mat."
About Susana Balbo:
Born into a traditional family, Susana reneged of her fate since she was young by applying to study nuclear physics in Bariloche. Being this a very unconventional choice for the time, her parents refused to let her leave Mendoza. From that point, Susana decided to follow the family business (viticulture) professionally, thus challenging the contemporary social beliefs, because at that time no women had graduated as winemaker.
In 1981 Susana received her degree in enology, and became the first woman in Argentina to do so. Her career started in Cafayate, Salta province at Michel Torino winery where she was in charge of developing and stylizing the Torrontes varietal. Afterwards she worked at many well-regarded wineries such as Martins and Catena Zapata.
In 2012, she was recognized as one of the "Most influential women wine-makers" by The Drink Business magazine. Later, in 2015, she was awarded by the same magazine as "Woman
Throughout her career as a winemaker, Susana had the opportunity of working internationally. She was the first Argentinean woman hired as a consultant to wineries worldwide: Spain, Chile, Italy, Brazil, Australia, and California. This experience allowed her to always be ahead of market trends and wine styles.
