International Day of Yoga 2019

This year I’m teaming up with Samsara Yoga Center to plan Jamestown’s 3rd International Day of Yoga. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of IDY since it’s inception in 2015. Each year it gets bigger and better.

The beauty of IDY is that it brings yoga to those that may not have had the opportunity to try yoga with a teacher yet. Yoga classes are not cheap, single passes are intentionally high to encourage students to commit to buying a class pack and coming back again and again. Yoga studio’s aren’t cheap to run either, not many teachers or studio owners are getting rich doing what they love.

IDY isn’t about making money, there’s never been a cost to attend any of the events that I’ve planned for this worldwide yoga day. This is a chance for local teachers to give their time so that anyone who wants to can experience yoga.

Jamestown’s IDY is being held at Comedy Central Park this year with classes at all times for begginers, intermediate/advanced, and something for the kids so mom and dad can give themselves some time. We hope you can join us, there’s going to be a special Human Mandala experience in the middle of the day, you won’t want to miss that.

Yoga for Atheletes (Vinyasa Style), Samsara Yoga Center

Thursdays, 6-7pm

I’m back to teaching a regular vinyasa class in Jamestown, New York at Samsara and I couldn’t be more excited. The past year has had me mostly teaching hatha yoga, which I also enjoy, but vinyasa was my first yoga love. Vinyasa is challenging, yes, but that does not mean that it is exclusive. Vinyasa yoga is for people who like to move, work, play and challenge themselves physically and mentally. Classes are taught to a varied level of students with many variations of all poses given.
