View Full Profile

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.

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 have done a lot of yoga since 2009 and am very into the technical aspects: alignment and terminology.

About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

Join me for a private yoga, group yoga, youth yoga, Reiki healing yoga, and yoga sculpt classes. My classes can be held at our small studio, outside at a park/beach, or I can come to you. I take students through a series of Asanas moving breath to movement focusing on building strength and releasing stress through client customized postures. Set to great playlists, students leave class feeling strong physically, emotionally,  and spiritually.

About Natascha
Natascha has been healing clients since 2012. She first fell in love with yoga in 2011. Shortly after she completed her 200 RYT teacher training in 2012. She then decided to take her training and certifications to the next level through sculpt teacher training. Natascha is also level one and two Reiki certified. She believes Yoga and Reiki are a gift and that they give us the chance to focus internally reconnecting with intuition, heart, and spirit. Focusing on alignment, she uniquely customizes her classes specifically for each client. Her intention as a yoga instructor is to help guide students to connect with their most powerful selves and to cultivate a sense of security and peace from within.

I fell in love with yoga when I took my first class almost 15 years ago. I have been practicing and growing in my yogic journey ever since. I truly enjoy teaching students more about the mind/body connection, the importance of breath-work, the history of the practice, relaxation techniques, and proper form. I create my lessons to tailor the needs of the student in a challenging, fun, and safe way.

About Nicole
Imagine lying down on your mat. You take a deep breath, expand your lungs and belly, and allow yourself to melt more into the mat with every exhalation. Your whole body relaxes. Your mind relaxes. You feel the energy you just created in a your yoga class and let go. You notice the energy flowing from the top of your head, down your body and you know you just created something special. That's what my very first yoga class was like almost 15 years ago. I fell in love with yoga and now I share my knowledge and passion for yoga, meditation, and all things health and wellness related to students every day.

I have been practicing and learning for almost 15 years love helping others improve their lives. I'm a 200-RYT, NASM Certified personal trainer, meditation and Reiki 1 & 2 practitioner. I have been teaching students ages 15-90 from begi
nner to advance. I truly enjoy inspiring students to learn to love their body & mind more and improve their quality of life. In each class students have the opportunity to learn

• Breath-work
• Relaxation techniques
• Poses, modifications, and variations
• Consistency and mindfulness
• Proper form and techniques
• Different forms of meditation
• Mind/muscle connection
• Concentration and endurance
• Yogic history and philosophy

The more I teach the more I learn and I put in the effort to practice on and off the mat. You’re smart, so you already know anything worth doing takes work and consistency. Yoga teaches you that. In order to see its benefits you need to be consistent. That's why it's called a yoga practice. According to Harvard Health and Psychology Today yoga benefits beyond the mat include but are not limited to:

• Increased Vitality
• Reduced Fatigue and Inflammation
• Better Body Image
• Regulated Cortisol (Your stress hormone)
• Elevated Mood
• Overall better quality of life

I’ve learned the times I need yoga the most are the times I try to avoid it. So what are you avoiding? I like to have open communication with my students and create a class to suit their needs because everybody is different just like every body is different. Sign up for classes with me today and allow me to be your guide as you embark on an amazing journey, guaranteed to change your life.

Namaste and with love,

Nicole

Nicole's classes are wonderful. She is very detailed and has the ability to bring a strong awareness to the mind and body in each class. She is very easy to talk to and her passion for yoga and helping people is very apparent. I highly recommend her to anyone starting or wanting to develop a deeper practice.

Nicole is a fantastic teacher with a genuine desire to help. She will teach you how to gain a further understanding of each pose and give you tiny tweaks on how to go deeper. When you think you have reached your physical limit you'll hear her whisper breathe and you'll sink deeper into it. Absolutely incredible at what she does.
