  • Ina

    Certified Yoga Instructor

    Tai Chi Instructor

    I love practicing Yoga and Tai Chi for the strength and transformation they have brought to my life, physically and emotionally. I like to blend the two practices together and incorporate them into everything I do whether it is hiking, driving in NJ traffic, or playing bass guitar with my band SisterMonk.

    Yoga Experience:

    -I received my 200hr RYT Certificate in 2015 at Beyoga Studio and practice/teach Vinyasa, Hatha, Chair, Restorative, Power, and Hot Bikram style yoga.

    -Trained under Meghan’s Foundation’s Yoga for Veterans and other populations experiencing PTSD.

    -Nancy Smith's Fundamental of Ayurveda Training for a Yoga Practice

    -Certified Reiki level 2

    -Taught over 2,500 yoga classes

    Tai Chi Experience:

    -I have been practicing the Yang style short form (37 postures) since 2014 under the guidance of Jody Rubel

    -Member of the Long River Tai Chi School which includes the practice of Sword Form, Fencing, and Sensing Hands.

    -I am currently in my fourth year of Tree of Life Tai Chi Teacher Training program with Dr. Peter Wayne, an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Author of “The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi: 12 Weeks to a Healthy Body, Strong Heart, and Sharp Mind”

    When guiding beginners, I like to focus on alignment and breath work to help develop a strong foundation for a safe and deeper practice. When working with intermediate or advanced practitioners, I help to sharpen awareness of coordinating micro alignments with breath, and how to maintain balanced energy through strong, challenging poses.

    It gives me so much joy to be able to share the tools and techniques that I use to help me live my best life, and to encourage others to create and discover their own!

  • Jody

    Tai Chi Instructor

    Tai Chi Instructor 

    After graduating Magna Cum Laude in Anthropology from Brandeis University, I set out traveling, in order to experience by firsthand knowledge the art of ‘staying in places long enough to immerse myself in distant cultures’. It was my first exploration of stillness through movement.

    In 2007 at One Drop Monastery in Washington State, I was introduced to Tai Chi and learned the principal of non-Doing (i.e., moving the body without a mover.) Since then, I have been studying the Yang 37 posture short form, sword, sensing hands and Dai Lu. I continue to seek ways to understand and convey the beautiful logic and natural physics of the form while honoring the healing, relaxing, mental focus, internal strength building, Chi (energy) flow and communal bonding that naturally takes place in a Tai Chi practice. Today prominent researchers such as Katherine Kerr (Brown University) and Dr. Peter Wayne (Harvard Medical school) are connecting movement based embodied contemplative practices to scientific findings, affirming that yes - this stuff is for real! Even for us skeptics!

    In the words of my teacher Wolfe Lowenthal, (whose teachings are steeped in the Tao) in Tai Chi “There are no secrets,” only mysteries we unfold together.

    I have taught in libraries, nursing homes, Martial Arts schools, Neurology centers, parks, senior centers, community centers, and retreat centers. For me, Tai Chi is a way of life; a method-less method for undoing and remodeling everyday excess, tension, and imbalance.

  • John

    Certified Personal Trainer

    Spending 3 years with a personal trainer throughout high school, I quickly learned how helpful it was to have someone by your side rooting for you! Through all the ups and downs I knew that my trainer was there for me and had my best interests in mind, and I wanted to pass that on to others as well. I have 9 years of experience in the gym, with 2 of those as an NASM certified personal trainer. I believe that fitness is not a state of being, but a lifestyle. No matter where you are in life it is never too late to start, and there is no better time than now!

    John trains all ranges of clients for youths to seniors, and high achievers to medical oriented fitness.
