She hopes to bring her students the strength and stability that helped shape her own practice, with the added goal that lessons on the mat will transcend off the mat. Carissa teaches a well-sequenced flow to upbeat music, focusing on alignment as well as coordination of the body, breath, and mind. You can expect to work up a sweat, play with an arm balance or an inversion, and still find some time for meditation in her class.

Sara Parrott

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.
