Meet Our Instructors
Our instructors are well-versed in their specific yoga practices. More importantly, they're members of the larger community - just like you.
My name is Heather Petrosky and I am the owner of We Be Yoga! For me, Yoga facilitates healing . It has taught me to breathe again. In 2018, I received my teaching certification from Blue Banyan Yoga School in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia from the magical humans named Sohpie Simpson, Jake Miller and Angella Irwin who focused on vinyasa yoga. This was the place where I learned that yoga is really about community, and our connection to ourselves and others. The name of the studio represents just that because WE are yoga. Only together as a community is all of this possible. This studio is not mine, it is ours to learn and grow and breathe together. It is a true honor to be of service to you, see you on your mats!
Meditation is using the mind, body, or breath to alter your state of consciousness. Pat’s approach organizes meditation into 4 categories; facilitating a deeper understanding of the practice with a strong foundation in technique. He first learned to meditate from Emily Fletcher of Ziva Meditation in New York City. Pat is a firm believer that meditation is simply an ingredient when it comes to healing. He continually strives to restore balance in his life while lending his experience, knowledge, and passion to help others do the same. He's certified by the esteemed Veda Center to teach meditation. Under the guidance of Charlie Knoles and Liddy Arens, Pat has an array of techniques that he is excited to share with you!
I originally started practicing yoga during college while battling depression. Yoga helped me to move through this at my own pace. I learned how to slow down and to become more in tune with how my mind and body are connected to my overall well-being. It has helped me to always take a step back and remember to breathe when feeling anxious or stressed.
During the beginning of the pandemic, I completed my 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Blue Fitness under the instruction and guidance of Ashley Adams. In addition to hatha yoga, I enjoy practicing vinyasa and restorative yoga. During the training, Ashley always emphasized how important it is to show all levels of a pose and to meet the yogis where they are at. I think this is so important as not everyone is coming in at the same skill or flexibility level but they are coming in for the same reason: to breathe, slow down, and reconnect with their mind and body.
Cathy Calabria-Kane is an integrated bodyworker with over 20 years of teaching experience. She uses a meditative yoga practice of fluid and gentle poses accommodating all levels of Yogi’s [Students] body shapes and fitness levels. Through a connected series of asanas (postures) we can explore how our pranayama (breath) leads us through movement. I incorporate
traditional postures, Salutations, Warrior series, sacred shapes and restorative asanas. As we deepen into this gentle yoga practice each student can explore
their individual gifts of alignment, flexibility, strength, balance and breath. Cathy provides detailed instruction, modifications and assists.
Britt began practicing yoga in 2012 for personal fitness but stayed and progressed with her practice due to the mental health benefits.

Yin + Vinyasa Yoga
Shani began her Yoga journey several years ago as a way to balance body and mind as well as to help with stress and anxiety. It didn't take long for her to feel the transformational effects of the practice, thus leading her to want to share through teaching.
In the Spring of 2020 she completed a 200 YTT through Yogasphere in Newtown PA. A thirst for even more knowledge and wanting to dive even deeper into all things Yoga led her to complete Shanteel's 300 TT in Oct 2021 bringing her to 500 RYT. In between that time she also became a certified Yin Yoga Instructor under Bernie Clark, and is a Reiki 1 practitioner through Prancing Peacock in Yardley.
In her classes she encourages students to honor themselves where they are allowing plenty of space for self exploration both on and off the mat. Her background in dance also makes an appearance through creative movement and sequencing.
Shani believes that we are always students first and there is so much to continue learning from one another.
When she isn't teaching, she loves spending time with her Husband John and three Dalmatians Hudson, Sarah & Welsey. Being in nature as much as possible is a must and of course working on her own personal practice of Yoga.
