Michael Fahey & ​Neil Meisel 

Teacher's potluck 2018

In 2001, Neil Meisel was looking for a place to practice Rolfing, lead meditations, and teach yoga; at the same time, Michael Fahey was looking for a place to share his passion for yoga as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar. ​With Michael's background as a skilled craftsman and carpenter, he & Neil built our beautiful studio by hand and opened The Awareness Center in the fall.


Their intention was to create a place to go beyond the distractions of our daily lives- and indeed they did. Many students have graced our studio, and as the years have passed, the heart of the studio has never changed; it has always been a place to participate in practices--whether they be yoga, meditation, T'ai chi--that support us in living more wisely and deepen our understanding of the interconnection of all life.
