About us

My first memories of yoga are from childhood, practicing asana alongside my dad, and watching him sit for long periods every morning to meditate. These influences acted as a seed that was planted in me—one which began to blossom over a decade later when I gained an affinity for books on Western Esotericism, and found myself learning yoga postures yet again, but this time under the tutelage of many great LA and New York based yoga teachers. I received my 200-hour certification at Atmananda Yoga in 2008, and shortly thereafter completed an advanced teacher training with Schuyler Grant at Kula Yoga, and studied with Nevine Michaan to become a Katonah Yoga certified instructor.

     In my classes I strive to help students explore the inner realms though the forms and expressions of the physical body. I enjoy focusing on the intricacies of precise alignment and at the same time crave the immense sense of freedom, which comes from letting that go to flow intuitively from movement to movement. It is my opinion that through the grace of the movements of the physical body, one can imbue the same sense of grace and peace within. In the words of the ancient adage: as above, so below; as without, so within.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
