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.

Maureen Taylor

Hatha-trained with alignment-based focus, Maureen is a dedicated and
passionate individual who will bring the same passion to each and every one of
her classes. Maureen will incorporate the physical and spiritual aspects of this beautiful calming practice. She encourages her students to blossom by integrating the graceful flow of Vinyasa yoga with mindfulness to the connection between the body, mind and breath. Her classes will leave you feeling grounded and balanced while having a great workout.
Maureen creates an authentic space with stimulating asana for all levels of practitioners.

Vikram Hirani

Vikram is a 300HR Advanced Certified Lotus Flow(TM) Vinyasa Instructor. His classes involve dynamic sequences with invitations to explore inversions and arm balances, though modifications are always provided to keep students of all levels in the flow. Vikram's highest priority is for students to enjoy the shapes of yoga in the unique ways that their own body expresses them, celebrating their own individual yoga journey. Classes are built around themes connecting the physical practices to deeper aspects of yoga, so that the student ideally emerges from class balanced in both body and mind.

Sarah Sumner

Sarah Sumner believes that yoga is a one of the greatest teachers of compassion, and crafts intelligent sequences to expand the body, heart, and mind to find greater empathy on and off the mat. By focusing on the reasons why we do the asana poses, her students surprise themselves with their willingness to dive deeper in them. She received her 200hr from Laughing Lotus, which helped her understand the importance of fluidity, joy, and intention in every practice.

After receiving her BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Sarah incorporates her four years of breath, voice and body training into the asana practice, offering her students creative ways to tune in. She is extra sensitive to combine specific alignment cues to protect the body because she first came to yoga because of her severe case of Scoliosis.

Through strong postures and a fierce devotion to the breath, she hopes every student leaves the room stronger and more empowered.
