Beginner Yoga

This class is taught by:

Laurie Luongo

Laurie has taught extensively and passionately since 2004, believing that yoga is an inquiry and exploration into self--‐awareness that may take many
playful, challenging and joyful forms.
As a Professional Level Kripalu Certified yoga instructor, Laurie has continued training in other traditions. Her current passion is yoga therapeutics.
In her classes Laurie emphasizes connection to breath, body awareness and acceptance. Poses are selected to help create a sense of strength, fluidity and balance. Alignment suggestions are offered to help participants tap into their own innate wisdom.
The relaxation techniques Laurie uses are designed to reduce stress and promote optimal health.
Laurie has created a CD of guided relaxation and visualizations to share the Yoga Relaxation experience.

Gina Callender

Gina, a 500 RYT, has been practicing yoga over the past 15 years, and completed the YogaWorks 200 hour teacher training in Westchester in March 2013. She has a 1st degree level Reiki Certification in the Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition and is looking to progress further in those studies. In 2014, Gina started her 500 hour OM yoga teacher training (YTT) with Cyndi Lee and recently completed that training in June 2015. This training included OM Meditation YTT levels 1 & 2, Pranayama YTT and Restorative YTT modules, as well as any additional 18 hours in anatomy with Jason Ray Brown. In February 2015, Gina completed 30 hours of Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Corina Benner. She is always looking to learn and is constantly taking workshops to better understand the practice and share what she learns with her students.
To Gina, yoga is a transformative philosophy that goes beyond asanas, or poses, that the Western world associates with “yoga”. Yoga teaches us to slow down, be more conscious of our bodies and the world around us and can have huge physical and mental benefits when practices regularly. Some of these benefits include: lower blood pressure, more relaxed, greater flexibility and balance. Gina puts a heavy emphasis on the importance and benefits of Savasana, Yin and Restorative Yoga as a way to relax the parasympathetic nervous system.
This class is ideal for those aspiring Yogi's who are beginning or restarting their Yoga practice or for the advanced practitioner who wants to "get back to the basics" of their Yoga practice. Come and explore Yoga in this fun and creative class, designed to leave you feeling OMazing!
