Surya Hot Flow


This class is taught by:

Kate Szekely

Kate Szekely is a theater maker and an 800 hour certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher. She began her interest in theater at the age of 12, when the perils of middle school introduced bullying and self consciousness. But theater led her to find a creative outlet for her voice. Beginning a rigorous Hatha yoga practice at the age of 16, Kate found these ancient practices to bring her a sense of peace and confidence in her own body. She then moved to New York to attend NYU Tisch for a BFA in Theater. There, as well as continuing her yoga studies, Kate fell in love with physically based theater techniques as a modality of healing coupled to self expression and expansion. She received her 300 hour Jivamukti Certification in May 2016, and continued her studies for her 800+ hour Jiva certification. Since that point, Kate has dedicated her life to exploring and tuning the physical form through art, ritual and yoga to help others expand their potential and consciousness.

Megan Venzin

After moving to NYC to study improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade in 2009, Megan quickly realized that her fast-paced lifestyle needed more balance. The few free moments she found between work and late night sets were devoted to an ever growing vinyasa practice.
 
Megan's reliance on yoga for steadiness of mind eventually brought her to PURE Yoga's teacher training certification program, where she studied under the instruction of Kay Kay Clivio and Yogi Charu. Today, Megan's focus has shifted to writing and fitness. When she's not instructing high-energy classes, you can find Megan covering festivals and other events for the Brooklyn-based blog, FREEwilliamsburg and Metrosource Magazine. She will incorporate your special requests into playlists, just ask.

Annalisa Venezia

Annalisa is an energetic and outgoing individual and brings her unique style of Vinyasa flow to her classes. She received her certification in 2017 at Younique Yoga under the instruction of Kelly Santucci, E-RYT 200.
 
She wishes to inspire her students to connect with their own personal wisdom, healing abilities, and expansive potential through the practice of Yoga.
 
From a very young age, Annalisa was interested in how the human body moves and flows. Her background includes ballet, which is why she immediately fell in love with her first heated Vinyasa Yoga class. It was during her teacher training, she realized Yoga was more than just the “asanas” and applied the practice of Yoga
into her everyday life. Yoga is about balance, discipline, and most importantly, going with the “flow”. She designs her classes so that students move with a beautiful
balance of strength and fluidity, and leave class feeling open and energized.

Susan Steiner

Susan's classes are Upbeat, Fun, Thought Provoking and Challenging. She incorporates the Five Tenets of the Jivamukti method with a down to earth approach and a willingness to share herself and connect with the students. She loves to put together fun and funky playlists while she focuses on smart and safe sequencing with proper alignment instruction and strong hands on adjustments. She attempts and hopes to help the students experience some sort of transformation while they entrust their precious presence with her letting her guide them through their inhales and exhales. She got certified in 2007 then received her 800 certification shortly thereafter. She thanks her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life along with so many others - her beloved mentor Rima Rabbath for seeing her highest potential and always staying with her. She also thanks Monica, Lady Ruth, Narayani, Cassandra, Jeff Scios & Yogeswari for their profound impact on her life."
