Every yoga class I teach is a deep dive into the present moment. Who is here today, I wonder? What is the vibe of the group? What did we all show up to experience together? I have no plan, no agenda, no dogma to teach. My approach is simple – we move and breathe and feel together. We embrace our whole selves on our mats – the good, the bad and the ugly. We laugh and maybe shed a few tears. We arrive fully and leave more real, more alive, more in love. www.amypatee.com
I see every yoga practice as an opportunity to infuse daily living with vitality, balance and curiosity. I hold space for students to dive into the richness yoga has to offer, to explore their edges and listen deeply. Through intentional sequencing, breath practices and mediation, we awaken to what is alive within and walk more boldly in the world. www.vincentyoga.com
My search for truth began long before coming to yoga, but yoga felt like coming home. The healing, awakening and empowerment I experienced through yoga, led me to devote myself to live and share this sacred science.
I have been blessed to learn from master teachers such as Rod Stryker, Rajamani Tigunait, Indu Arora and Richard Freeman. I continue to avidly study and practice Para Yoga and the Himalayan tradition.
I specialize in in-depth study, practice and personalized/ therapeutic applications of yoga. www.vincentyoga.com
Regardless of who you are, what you look like, or whom you love, creating a space for everybody is very important. Society places many expectations and roles as to how, what, when, where, and why you are doing something instead of simply being. Through conscious movement connected to breath, you have an opportunity to learn how to be in this moment. Yoga is an opportunity to create, rediscover, and connect to the experience of being human and overcome the obstacles that stand in your path. I invite you to join me.
Yoga has taught me the importance of balance and the value of connecting with myself. It is a bridge to a larger community within the collective consciousness. The core of my teaching aims to create space for the individual to alleviate tension by focusing on physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. If you are interested in cultivating a space for healing and self-care, join me on the mat.
Yoga is a gift in connecting ~ connecting to our breath and connecting to our inner awareness. Community classes also give us the opportunity to connect to the people around us. Yoga invites us to show up and check-in with our internal experience. My teaching goal is to support people in connecting to a place of steadiness and comfort in their yoga practice. I hope to share the experience of this connection in my classes.

My first priority in teaching is to clear away the stress, tension and mental chatter from the day by creating a comfortable and welcoming environment. From there, my role as a teacher is to know when to step in and when to get out of the way. Using compassionate guidance, I support students in whatever way seems most appropriate. Perhaps a hands-on assist, or it might be drawing attention to something in a student’s practice that they are not able to see or feel. Regardless of the means, the goal is always the same: to create increased self-awareness and support the realization that true understanding comes from within. www.shirakcharis.com
