I teach a breath-based flow style of yoga designed to strengthen and lengthen your body and focus your mind. I have studied a number of different styles from Ashtanga to Iyengar, as well as pranayama and nada yoga.

About Dunia
I have a background in classical, jazz and popular music. I have played flute for over 20 years in every context, from orchestra to marching band to CBGB. I have performed with vocal ensembles of every size and in every style.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons focus on range and stability. My style is very casual and I am happy to work on details. I enjoy helping students develop their own sound, rather than imposing a dogma on them. I like to bring everyone into their full voice, no matter what the instrument.

If my posted hours don't suit you, please send me an email. I can be flexible.

About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and I just completed my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and inco
rporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" ~Plato

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.

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.

Excellent first voice lesson. Jillian is warm, encouraging, and very knowledgeable. I was surprised how many "technical" issues she introduced me to (optimal breathing & how best to practice it at home; appropriate use of falsetto at upper limit of bass voice range, etc.) . Looking forward to continued lessons. (Much better use of what used to be my copay for psychotherapy! I've also joined rehearsals with new Encore-NYC chorale group in Manhattan, for people over 55. Music is giving me a real emotional lift in my retirement.)

the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

I have taught the US Special Forces yoga and, using my anatomy based approach have help that group find greater mobility and some peace in their lives. Additionally, I have over 1,000 hours teaching experience and have taken trainings and workshops with teachers in the US and Europe including, Doug Keller, Jordan Bloom, Desiree Rumbaugh, John Friend. I am Yoga Alliance registered and have taking extra workshops in pre-natal yoga and yoga therapeutics.
I have experience teaching private lessons for those with injuries, those who are pregnant and those who simply want privacy or don't have time. I will work with you to prepare a class that meets your needs, whether it is improving your functional fitness, preparing for the birth of your baby or simply relaxing and enjoying greater mobility and calm.

About Ashleigh
I'm a former Spanish teacher who has taught taught levels 1-IV for the last 4 years. Prior to that, I lived in Germany as a military spouse where I taught yoga. Before Germany, I taught Spanish for two years at a private boarding school in Raleigh, North Carolina. My first teaching position, however, was in Granada, Spain where I taught English at a rural school near Granada, Spain having won a fellowship after university graduation.
Although my bachelors is in Spanish Language and Literature I am studying TESOL at American University where I have completed 12 credits in language assessment, second language acquisition and linguistics. My classes are engaging and personalized. For my athlete students, I find articles and clips about their sport that we build language around. I do the same for the interests of my other students, ther
eby making their connection to the language personal and intrinsic. In our tutoring sessions, there will be music, video and games! Because I am a teacher, I can help you liaise with your student's teacher in a way that will help us understand how to help your student.

I worked with Ashleigh for several years in a high school setting. Ashleigh is a dedicated, patient, knowledgeable and professional teacher. She shares her passion for the Spanish language and cultures with her students and strives to make the concepts accessible to all. Her lessons are always structured to allow students to make the most of previous knowledge and build on it. She pushes her students to excel and truly cares about their progress.

Private lessons are a great way to dive into the practice in your own unique way. Whether you are just beginning or if you’ve been practicing for years, private sessions offer an intimate opportunity to work on the anatomy of postures to help you reach the maximum benefit of the poses.

Beginners will feel completely guided through the practice with alignment cues that are easy to understand and pick up in the body. Simple meditation techniques are implemented to help train the mind to focus on the present moment and block out distractions. Private sessions for beginners/intermediate students will leave you feeling confident, connected, and whole.

Advanced students have the opportunity to challenge themselves. If you are working on backbends or handstands, privates are a great way to learn how to get into the poses safely. Sessions for advanced practitioners will leave you feeling refreshed, determined, and inspired. If you are a yoga teacher looking to deepen your personal practice,

About Erica
** I have a level 2 background check through my business and can provide documentation upon request

Stress Relief:
Yoga is about clearing the mind and focusing on the present moment. It’s an opportunity to let go of your worries, dig a little deeper, accept your situations, and find peace with yourself. Not only does it lower your blood pressure, you will also sleep better at night.

Weight Loss:
There are some poses that specifically work the digestive system and can detox the body. Activate your natural detoxification process, increase blood flow to the organs, and oxygenate your cells with yoga.

Strength and Flexibility:
Work on strengthening your muscles, finding balance, building flexibility, and improving concentration. Yoga gives you more energy, soothes aches and pains, increases immunity, encourages better respiration,
and tones the body.

Confidence:
Break free of boundaries and self-limitations through the discovery of yoga. It’s a practice of self-love, inner-peace, and positive thinking. Increasing body awareness and mental connection helps us make better decisions, improves our mental health, and cultivates happiness.
