I am a certified yoga instructor teaching in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

My journey into the world of yoga began when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a pervasive autoimmune disease characterized by pain in the body. Since then I have learned to use my practice to heal my physical body, calm my emotional body, and bring balance into my life. Yoga is a way to connect the mind and the body and to become aware of the spirit. Yoga has changed my life and I work to cater each class to meet the needs of the individual present.

About Jillian
I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional freelance writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative setting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session or lesson with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself and your personal goals.

I've been teaching kids yoga since September 2014 and adult yoga since April 2015. I enjoy inspiring my students through a full body experience of movement with breath, muscle strength and flexibility, connection with others, listening to verbal instructions and stories, playing world music, and aromatherapy.
I completed my 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and Kids Rainbow Yoga Training as well.

About Hannah
Hannah seeks to share her passions for yoga, travel, art, nature, adventure, and creativity with you!

Hannah creates balanced, fun, intellectual, refreshing yoga sequences that take you on far away imaginary journeys while also teaching deeper yoga philosophy and wellness concepts. These classes are available live in San Diego or on video (many filmed on location) to take you on an inspiring journey abroad!

With 4 years of experience as a flight attendant, and many more adventures preceding, Hannah's curiosity and adventurous spirit have explored ancient ruins, pilgrimage treks, world famous art museums, countless natural beauty vistas and monuments, while encountering and soaking in elements from worldwide cultures. She has chosen San Diego as her home because of the abundant sunshine, aesthetic design, friendly people, nourishing
nature, and yogic culture.

She also had the opportunity to teach 4 years of drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed media to students from grades 5-12 at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, Torrey Pines High School, and Endeavour Academy. Her lessons focused on individual creativity and learning about historical and cultural art techniques from around the world. Through the Language of Art, she taught the Elements (line, shape, form, value, space, color, and texture) as well as the Principles (balance, contrast, proportion, variety, unity, and gradation) in each art project. Hannah encouraged every student to analyze their own artwork and the artwork of others through discussions and presentations. Today, she offers private art lessons to individuals of any age who would like to explore their creative side in their media of choice.

Hannah first tried yoga at the end of her college studies, when her fingertips were 6-8 inches from touching the ground (in forward fold), then she dabbled in yoga on Nintendo Wii. She really dove in and found transformation through Yoga One San Diego. In 2012, while serving tables at Cafe Chloe, Hannah met Laura McCorey, a teacher and blog writer from Yoga One, and began learning yoga in beautiful Balboa Park. Laura opened her perspective to the healing aspect that yoga can bring and she began to find inner balance and peace as she practiced 3-4 times a week at the studio for the following years to the present. With an athletic background of a runner and hiker, Hannah gradually began to increase in flexibility, balance and whole body strength. Today, her palms can press against the earth in forward fold! This teaches us that yoga is not for the flexible, but it is here to help us become more flexible!

In fall of 2014, after completing the Rainbow Kids Yoga Training, she stumbled upon the opportunity to also teach yoga to her students at the charter school. She continued to deepen her practice as she received her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certifficate from Yoga One San Diego in March 2015. Hannah shared her passion of travel by taking kids through imaginary journeys to different places. This passion evolved into teaching live adult adventure classes at Yoga One San Diego and Waterfront Park.

Hannah's students have been able to experience the joy and health benefits that yoga has to offer. Hannah emphasizes safety in getting into and out of poses, proper alignment, and the benefits of breathing with your movements (Vinyasa Flow). She incorporates partner poses like 'Bicycle" and "House" to teach trusting and interconnected relationships.

Hannah enjoys inspiring her students through a full body experience of movement with breath, muscle strength and flexibility, connection with others, listening to verbal instructions and stories, playing world music, aromatherapy, and symbolism through visual art.

Hannah has had the opportunity to teach a Kids Summer Camp in 2015 that connects the yoga lessons to her art lessons. For example, she taught a Rain forest theme lesson with poses like tree, frog, jaguar, and rainbow, then incorporated illustration examples through books about the Rain forest, and students drew and colored their own illustration with these animals and objects. Further, after a yoga lesson of Things that Fly, students created bald eagles with vinyl by tracing their hands for the wings. Hannah aspires to share her light and enthusiasm to anyone who is open.

Hannah loves Half Moon pose and the contrast that it represents with the sun, similar to yin/yang philosophy. There are many contrasts in our life that are meant to be observed and appreciated: night/day, inhale/exhale, forward-bend/back-bend, hot/cold, energetic/calm, in/out, up/down, new/old, fast/slow, work/play, travel/home, left/right, clean/dirty, empty/full, difficult/easy, and young/old. She is inspired to continue to grow on her journey and share it with you!

I am Mia's grandmother. She has shown an interest in piano and has just turned 10 a few days ago. She loves lessons with Hannah and has completed her fifth lesson and will continue on.
Hannah is patient and Mia enjoys learning from her. I sit nearby during her home lessons and feel the teaching technique is perfect for Mia.
I took lessons as a child and feel Mia has accomplished much in five lessons while having fun and enjoying the songs she is playing.
I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone who has an interest in learning how to play the piano.
I chose piano lessons as a Christmas gift to my granddaughter. I waited until she showed an interest in learning piano and I'm happy to have found a great teacher. Thank you TakeLessons and thank you Hannah.

I have been taking Liam's Tai Chi/ Qi Gong class for nearly two years now. He is a dynamic teacher that is sensitive to different types of learning paces and styles (both eastern and western) and employs both in his classes. His explanations are simple and he always relates the movement back to its origin as a martial arts defense/offensive move which helps one establish the intention behind the movement. I have learned yang short form and chen style short form from him. I would highly recommend that you take his class if you are interested in beginning or continuing a tai chi practice. Through my practice I have found a healthy way to manage stress and anxiety.

Through 15 years of personal yoga practice and four years of teaching experience, my students can experience an integration of yoga styles including power, Yin, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga. Sessions will be tailored to serve the student's individual goals, needs, and conditions.

About Morissa
In 2006 I began my personal journey with yoga. At first it was a way to lose a little weight and get free of some of the stresses of my daily work life. But, I quickly fell in love and soon devoted myself to daily practice. In 2011 I completed my first 200 hour yoga teacher certification course in hot yoga. In 2014 I decided to grow my knowledge and completed a second 200 hour certification in Vinyasa yoga. My teaching style can be personalized to best serve the student. My purpose as a yoga teacher is to provide students with a way to move forward in their own personal journeys. Yoga is an art and a science that can touch mind, body and soul. But each person's yoga path is his/her own, and we can work together to find you the balance, strength, flexibility, relaxation, courage, peace, understanding, or whatever it is you seek!

I offer an understanding of the yoga practice as a healing modality, a way to understand our deeper selves. As we embark on a yoga journey, our initial intention may be that wanting flexibility, getting in shape etc. What happens though, with a consistent practice, is our intuition increases. We become more tolerant, peaceful, and hopeful. Decisions we need to make come with more ease and insight for our direction in life. Ultimately, we experience and understand deeper truths that expand through out our lives to the world around us and those we love. How beautiful the yoga practice is and how transforming it can be if you decide to practice. I am here to guide, provide insight, challenge you, and provide encouragement. Om Shanti, Om Peace

About Lisa
I truly feel blessed to witness people on their yoga journey. They begin, and as small changes take place, larger changes begin in their lives outside of the yoga mat. I practice Ashtanga yoga and have felt the true blessings of a regular yoga practice. I currently teach at a local yoga studio, Vinyasa classes Level 1/2 and a modified Ashtanga class. I hope to reach out through online to reach those who are not able to make it to a yoga studio, and want to start or maintain a yoga practice.
