Leslie Founder and Yoga Instructor

My journey began at Newark’s YMCA. Once I realized the benefits of yoga i thought everyone must do this. I then found a yoga studio and got certified as a 200 hr instructor. My goal is to share my love of yoga with everyone and allow people to grow with yoga. See you in class.

Aura Yoga Instructor

In February 2017, I completed my 200hr  certification from Bodhi Yoga Academy in Jackson, NJ while I was 6 months pregnant. In my classes, you can expect to be challenged and build strength. I believe that if it does not challenge you, it does not change you and fear isn't a good enough excuse. What I love about yoga is that we will never perfect it. It's truly a practice where we become stronger and grow both on and off our mats. How much progress we see is determined by our dedication. 

Let's practice and grow together! I look forward to seeing you on the mat! 

Brianna of I'm So Yoga

Brianna Yoga Instructor

I stepped into my yoga journey during college and haven’t turned back since. I discovered yoga as an accessible means to find space in my body, mind and life. I believe everyone has the true power within to be their greatest healer but often need to unveil the layers to uncover it. My classes will take people on a powerful journey to find the space to discover their inner strength and power. I completed my 200 hour RYT with Hot Yoga Revolution in 2018.

Whitney Yoga Instructor

I first fell in love with yoga in 2005 after a friend dared me to try Bikram yoga. Little did she know, that simple gesture turned into a life -transforming journey to peace, self discovery and self-love. I was drawn to yoga and immediately felt the powerful connection between the breath and movement. I believe in making every yoga practice a challenging, reflective and powerful internal experience; yet accessible for shapes, sizes and experience levels. After over a decade of practicing, I followed my passion and furthered my education and completed my 200 RYT at Powerflow Yoga in 2017.

Kishan Yoga Instructor

My journey began in 2013 to pursue mental and physical balance. I received my credentials as a 200 hr RYT from Yoga to the People in 2016. My classes are form and flow oriented leading students to build a better awareness of their body and encouraging a safe, playful and transformative practice. I am a firm believer in form following function, and if you function properly things will form themselves.
