Alex is Onyx’s Member Advisor and is here to welcome and assist new, potential, and existing members. Discussions range from the most appropriate classes for specific goals and physicality, membership options, and simply what to wear and bring to class. You may email her at alex@onyxyogastudio.com.
 
Alex is a certified 200 HR RYT and also holds a certification in advanced trauma and addiction training. As well as a personal trainer, she works with her students to help them reach their goals and aspirations through hard work and a splash of humor.
 
Alex believes that everyone can find a comfortable space to allow themselves to grow with the belief that one is never too old to accomplish their dreams and desires. Alex discovered yoga in 2015 after finding Onyx a few short minutes from her home. She was immediately hooked and began her journey by attending more than 370 classes in her first year of being a member. She attributes her passion and love for the art to her teachers and mentors; Shannon Elliot, Gabriella Perotti, and Jane Lindemann who not only showed her the beautiful path that yoga could lead her on, but also an entirely new way of living.
 
Alex has been interested in athletics before she entered grade school, immersing herself in competitive swimming, boxing, mixed martial arts, and cross country. She competed for a semi-professional swim team until she entered college where she earned her Bachelors Degree in Public Relations from Kean University.

Jane Lindemann

Jane is passionate about yoga. She believes that yoga is a life practice, both on and off the mat. Practicing yoga since 2008 she decided to deepen and strengthen her practice by becoming a certified yoga instructor, completing 300 hours of training through Yogadharma with Amy Cronise-Mead and Will Mead, and 100 hours of Anatomy and Therapeutics with Amy Cronise-Mead, this is where she found her foundation of mediation, yoga philosophies, and asana. Jane considers herself a student of life, loving to learn and teach, she hopes to inspire her students with the same foundation and passion that her teachers gave her. Jane is alignment based in her vinyasa teachings, her classes will be challenging but also playful, each students will move through their own practice to the best of their abilities in order for them to reach their full potential.

Jennifer Gottlick-Lazo

Jennifer began the practice of yoga as a way to physically challenge herself and to relieve her own stress and anxiety. She developed a deep love of the practice and discovered how beneficial it can be physically, mentally and spirituality. She made the life changing decision to leave her job in the health care industry to focus on deepening her knowledge and sharing the benefits of yoga. She completed her 200 hour RYT through Onyx Yoga Studio. Jennifer developed a knack for the subtlety of anatomy and alignment in the asana. 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. She also has gratitude and love for all of her teachers, past, present and future.
Level 1 moves through physical postures at a very moderate pace, usually starting with a sun salution series. Level 1 offers verbal instruction in alignment during the flow, but less than you will find in Beginner Basics, and more than you will find in Mixed Level. Often included is chanting, pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga philosophy and meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome at Level 1 classes, including Beginners, although those very new to yoga should bring an understanding that the class will be moving and flowing.
