Blakey Kornfeld


RYT500, C-IAYT
 
Blakey’s mother took her to her first yoga class in 1987,she never forgot the sense of quiet peace she felt in her very first svasana. Throughout her life she kept returning to her mat and the vedic philosophies that inspire the practice.
 
In 2006, she came back to yoga to deepen her recovery from drug addiction and improve her health. In the last 10 years, the spiritual practices of the 12 steps and yoga have interwoven to create a way of life for her. Through these practices, Blakey has come to believe that the body is a communicator, a barometer and assistant to the spiritual condition.
 
Her teaching is guided by lightheartedness, a down-to-earth attitude, and the hope that students will experience the power and comfort of their own true selves. She has been honored to be grand parented in to the second wave of Yoga Therapists by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Tammy’s classes are fun, upbeat, alignment centered classes. She teaches students of all ages and abilities and welcomes all new students. She is thankful for her students and teachers who have taught and supported her on her yoga journey. She is especially grateful to Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny for their guidance and support for the last 7 years.

Matthew began practicing Yoga and Mindfulness in 2011 and has been teaching since 2013. Trained privately by his mentor Connie Miller, Matthew’s style of teaching is influenced by the Kripalu, Anusara, and more recently Ashtanga traditions of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Mindfulness.
 
His classes invite an awareness that envelops all types of movement and keeps the mind steady, focused, and light. Matthew teaches universal alignment principles that keep the body safe while exploring inner stillness and breath in each posture. With his poetic verbal cues, intelligent sequencing and warm presence, Matthew works to co-create the conditions and space where his students may experience an authentic, inward experience of Yoga. Students will become present with the infinite creativity of the universe as it takes form in each and every body in its own, unique way!
All Levels Welcome
 
 
Hatha yoga provides students with a safe and supportive environment to explore optimal physical alignment in yoga poses. Students will move slowly and mindfully, deepening their understanding of poses while quieting the mind through this breath focused practice.  Because this style has less weight bearing activity for the upper body it is perfect for students who are newer to yoga or recovering from upper body injuries.
 
 
Recommended For:

- Brand new beginners.
- Seniors.
- Students healing from an injury or with an injury.
- Intermediate students deepening current practice with alignment work.
- Pilates and Barre students adding a supporting practice.
