Meet Jordan Lashley,
Owner & Lead Instructor


8 Limb Power Yoga, Master Class - Dynamic, Philosophical, Spiritual

At the age of 25, Jordan stepped into his first yoga class, and life was never the same again. In his book, There Is No Me; he shares the compelling story of his development as a yoga practitioner, teacher, and man driven by the deeper questions of life.

Jordan is a Yoga Instructor with over 18 years of experience studying, teaching, and sharing this beautiful practice with students of all levels. He completed his 200-hour RYT training in 2009 at the Baptiste Yoga Studio in Cambridge, MA, and has also completed comprehensive training in Jivamukti Yoga with Sharon Gannon and David Life, Yin Yoga with Josh Summers, and a 300hr yoga philosophy certification from Embodied Philosophy.

Jordan’s physical and spiritual practice has been shaped and cultivated with over 500 additional hours of training with many well-loved teachers and mentors. Jordan is also a dedicated mentor to many yoga students and newer teachers as they begin their own teaching journeys. 

Jordan believes that “Yoga is about balance, in every possible way. Strength, flexibility, balancing on one foot, balancing your emotional state, mental perspective, and life... we are at our best when we achieve as much balance as possible.” 

For nearly two decades, Jordan has been dedicated to the pursuit of truth as seen through the lens of yoga philosophy. As part of that journey, he realized that he needed to build a community where fellow seekers could practice asana while exploring the deeper nature of what it means to be a good and fulfilled human. In his classes, you will work hard physically, challenge your paradigm of the world, and connect to something bigger than yourself.  

Jordan's students experience a rigorous workout through his yoga sequences set to playlists that highlight his years as a DJ. The surprise is his gift to read the room, know what you need, and share philosophical and spiritual teachings at just the right moment of receptivity. Jordan teaches meditation, breath control, mantra, philosophy, and a HOT, dynamic, powerful flow in each class. 

Jordan makes pancakes for his daughter Penelopi every Saturday morning and loves to ride his motorcycle whenever New England weather is in cooperation! When he’s not teaching, Jordan is refining his talents as a stained glass artist. Each piece is one of a kind and meaningful. View Jordan's stained glass work.

8-limb Power Yoga: Powerful, Fun, Energetic

After many years of teaching in the fitness world, being a mom, and practicing yoga on her own at home, Annie ventured into Burning Wheel Yoga School one day and was quickly hooked! It was such a different experience to practice in person with other students. In the beginning, she couldn’t believe how challenging it was physically and mentally, but every time she left class, she felt better…about everything! And so she kept coming back. 

Annie began to learn that yoga is a philosophy and a way of living, not just an exercise routine, and this is what has made it truly transformational for her. She decided to do her Yoga Teacher training in 2019 with Jordan Lashley and has been teaching at Burning Wheel since she graduated. 

Annie’s class is an energetic and powerful class that offers challenging postural sequences with a focus on building strength and flexibility inside and out. It is a balanced, mindful, full-being workout. With fun music and guided meditations, she has a focus on incorporating present-moment training with the themes of self-awareness, empowerment, patience, compassion, courage, and, most importantly, connection to our awesome community!

Low Heat, Slow Flow: Nurturing, Supported, Mindful

My yoga journey began over two decades ago when I stumbled upon a class at a local gym. From the moment I stepped onto my mat and started to move my body, I experienced a profound shift. I learned to slow down, breathe, and move with intention and discovered greater equilibrium in my life. While practicing as a Physician Assistant in adult medicine, I felt a calling to merge my medical expertise with my passion for yoga. I wanted to provide a safe space where individuals navigating their changing bodies—whether due to illness, aging, or life's inevitable shifts—could find solace and empowerment through yoga and mindfulness practices. In 2014, I completed my 200-hour teacher training at HYP Studio in Needham.

My teaching philosophy is rooted in compassion and inclusivity. I strive to create a nurturing environment where every student feels embraced and supported on their journey of self-discovery through movement, breath, and mindfulness. Together, let's explore the boundless potential of yoga and mindfulness and uncover the profound sense of peace and vitality they can bring to our lives.

monique-allen-burning-wheel-staff-1Monique Allen

8-limb Power Yoga, Guided Flow & Restore, Fundamentals of Yoga - Soulful, Grounded, Nurturing

Monique was introduced to yoga in the mid-1970s by her mother when she began practicing to navigate the challenges of single parenting. Knowing her children were suffering from familial trauma; she intuited that they, too, would benefit from simple meditation and movement practices. For Monique, this began a lifetime of dabbling in the practice of yoga.

In the fall of 2018, Monique came to Burning Wheel Yoga School bereft and exhausted after the death of both of her parents within five months of each other. Jordan’s teaching was immediately healing and inspiring. In the fall of 2019, Monique joined Jordan’s Yoga Teacher Training program. The first goal was healing, the second was immersion in a sacred spiritual study, and finally, the desire to teach was born.  

Teaching yoga is an extension of a lifetime of gardening for Monique. She believes cultivating the human spirit is the best adaptation of gardening she can offer the Burning Wheel community and aims to offer a grounding practice that inspires personal growth. 
Monique is the founder of The Garden Continuum and its signature Life-Scape Method outlined in her book STOP Landscaping, START Life-Scaping. As the Lifescape Coach, she guides small business owners toward the path of self-realization and liberation as entrepreneurs. Monique loves to have her hands in the soil, ride her Harley, and cook for her family.

burning-wheel-head-shots-3Nikki Joyal

Inferno Pilates - Intense, Strong, Playful

Nikki's love for teaching came out of nowhere. She worked in the fitness world for years and never once thought, “I’d be a great teacher.” She loved yoga and exercise but wasn’t comfortable speaking to a group. For fun and self-development, she completed a 200-hour teacher training. She never thought she would actually share her learning with others.

She became a mother, fought and won a battle with breast cancer, and left her job without knowing where she would land. Becoming a mother changed her, but her battle with cancer completely turned her upside down, and when she came out the other side, she was not the same person anymore. This new person wanted to say YES! to everything life had to offer.

Nikki was extremely nervous about teaching her first yoga class, but I thought, “Why not!? If I don’t like it, I’ll never do it again.” That day was the beginning of the most amazing journey in personal growth. She found her true self through teaching. She loves helping people. Nikki is passionate about adapting any workout to meet the needs of her students. This passion has fueled her to complete many more training and certifications such as yoga rehabilitation, prenatal yoga, yoga for cancer, boxing trainer, personal trainer, and an inferno hot Pilates instructor.
Her classes incorporate all of her training and years of experience, from working with people who could hardly walk to working with others who are training for marathons. 

Nikki says, “I want exercise to be fun! I want you to move with the music and not overthink the moves; let your body lead you! I will change your mindset from ‘I have to do this’ to ‘I get to do this’! For me, feeling strong is powerful. I move my body, push my body because I spent years not being able to. We are so lucky to have these bodies and access to great teachers and great classes. I want people to show up to my class excited!” Nikki loves to read, cook, eat, boat, swim, hike, and spend time with her family.

State-of-the-Art Health & Safety Practices

Burning Wheel Yoga goes beyond the usual daily cleaning routine by implementing advanced UV-C technology in our yoga practice area and massage therapy room. We utilize an independent UVC device that saturates the massage therapy room with potent UV-C light to thoroughly disinfect all surfaces after every session, supplementing our regular cleaning process.

UV Clean Air -
Advanced Filtration System

Our yoga studio is equipped with the Air Knight air sanitation system, a tool commonly found in biotech laboratories, medical facilities, and educational institutions, designed to sanitize the air, making it inhospitable for bacteria and viruses while keeping it safe for people and pets.

Check out the video for more insights and specifics about our UV-C devices. We've been enthusiastic and trouble-free in using it since July 2020.

Sunlight Inside -
LED Lighting System

Discover the ideal fusion of nature and technology with our Sunlight Inside LED Lighting System. These ceiling lights offer a day-to-day UV spectrum that mimics natural sunlight, fostering an environment that promotes your health as you stimulate your mind.

Through the evenly distributed, organic light that replicates the outdoor ambiance, your teaching spaces evolve into areas that enhance overall health, focus, and well-being.

Small Class Sizes

At Burning Wheel Yoga School, we intentionally keep our class sizes modest (around 20 students) to provide enough personal space and comfort during yoga sessions. With a limited number of students in each class, our committed and proficient instructors can pay more attention to your individual needs, assisting you to enhance your abilities and progress in your yoga journey. 

Every mat has a designated space on the floor, offering everyone ample room to stretch without coming into contact with others or the walls. We encourage students to book classes online to secure their spot in their preferred class. Please note we cannot ensure a place for walk-in students.
