This class is taught by:

Denise Corsini

Denise was introduced to the practice of yoga in 2006 and was fascinated by the unique combination of mental stimulation and physical demand. Compelled to learn more, she began to enhance her knowledge of the postures, philosophies, and meditation which has allowed her to appreciate yoga as a holistic science of healing and happiness. She is enthusiastic about sharing her wide range of knowledge so that her students can learn to approach their lives with a deeper sense of awareness and consciousness. She also strives to help students of all levels find the edge of their practice and then guide them to the next level. She has completed a 200 Hour Hot Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Certification as well as a 100 Hour Therapeutic Certification. Come prepared to breathe, sweat and awaken. Allow this sacred practice to transform your life!

Joshua Ansley

Joshua's yoga is not for the faint of heart. His teaching lies heavily in Vedantic philosophy and is filtered through his background as a classically trained actor in London, a playwright in NY, a filmmaker in Los Angeles, a professional touring rock musician and a teacher training by Eric Paskel of Yoga Shelter in LA and Detroit. That's right...Detroit Rock City. Joshua has been teaching Vinyasa and Yin Yoga in both Spanish and English in Tulum, Mexico at Amansala’s ‘Bikini Boot Camp’, Yoga Shala, Yoga Dicha and Casa Violeta and he has now returned to NY to continue on his own path of teaching and being of service.
 Joshua is an urban monk and believes that all suffering is not caused by the world, but rather our relationship to it. Only through brutal honesty and consistency do we retrain the mind to keep us at our edge physically and mentally and thus surpass even our own expectations on our journey to greatness. His blend of poise and grace gleaned from classical text mixed with his Jersey boy sense of humor and musical talents brings a one of a kind power yogic experience to your own journey of transformation. Are you ready?

She has the gift of being able to offer her students cues on how to move from the inside and with the breath. She offers options and teaches modifications so every student has something to do. Jennifer has a welcoming and supportive presence. She teaches in a way that has students feeling safe and inspired. Jennifer extends her deepest gratitude to her teacher Shannon Elliott, for her support and encouragement along this journey.

Teresa Robinson

Teresa tried yoga for the first time in December 2014, and immediately fell in love. She became fascinated by the physical demand of the practice and how calm and relaxed she felt after each class.

Yoga helped Teresa move through a very difficult period in her life, overcoming depression and anxiety. She believes the practice is about clearing away whatever is in us preventing us from living a full and happy life.

To share this gift with others, Teresa completed her 200-hour Teacher Certification at Onyx Yoga Studio in Warren, NJ. She loves studying the Philosophy and Teachings and incorporating them into her classes, in a way that is relatable to everyone. Teresa teaches Vinyasa flow with a strong emphasis on Alignment, providing a safe and mindful approach by offering variations for anyone at any level. She challenges her students to go beyond what they believe possible to realize their unlimited potential. Teresa is eternally grateful for all of her teachers, past, present, and future.

Vinyasa Flow yoga taught in a heated environment, 100+ degrees 40%+ humidity. HOT Vinyasa classes move through yoga postures and sequences at a rigorous pace. A prior yoga practice and knowledge of basic postures is assumed given the extreme conditions. Come prepared to sweat and move, although traditional yogic chanting, breathwork, philosophy and meditation are often included also. Bring a non skid towel for your mat, hydrate well prior to class and bring water. Also, dry clothes and/or coverup for after class is advisable. We recommend that true beginners should start in Beginner Basics (regular temperature) or Warm Slow Flow before diving into HOT Vinyasa.
