WARM Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)


This class is taught by:

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.

Sherry Fahs

As the mother of four active, dyamic young girls, Sherry found her center, her peace and her increased ability to deal with the needs of this busy family, including her own needs, in the practice of yoga. With her certification in Yoga Dharma, her added training in Grounded Kids Yoga and her current study of Anatomy and Therapeutic Training, she enthusiastically teaches students both the physicality and the philosophy of Yoga. Her early educational background in theater and drama and her classroom teaching experience increase her ability to present Yoga in an interesting and sound way. Sherry offers careful explanations and demonstrations to beginners, but she also challenges advanced students to reach their potential. All of Sherry’s classes are imbued with a playful happiness, inspired by her work with children. Come and learn with her!

Michael Kohan

Michael (Mukunda Chandra das) completed his 300 hour teacher training in 2013 under the guidance of Ragunath das and Sondra Loring. Additionally, in 2015 he will complete a 600 hour Anusara Yoga teacher training lead by Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny. His well-rounded asana classes incorporate creative Vinyasa sequencing along with meditation, clear intention, and uplifting music. Michael’s asana classes are infused with devotion and aligned with the spiritual teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali. He strives to embody the qualities of yoga - humility, compassion, devotional service and non-violence, and he believes his role is to serve others through the practice of yoga, enabling students to become steadfast in their yoga. He believes that in serving others, we come to realize our true purpose.

Gabi Percario

A yogini since before she could even say “OM,” Gabi was introduced to yoga and meditation by her grandfather who was a devoted practitioner. Inspired by his way of life, she committed to her own practice in 2003 and has “continually been blown away by the ability that this practice has to give us exactly what we need in each moment, even as that need is constantly changing. Yoga is a perfect method and metaphor for life.” With her soothing voice and encouraging demeanor, her classes will have students of all levels feeling challenged and capable, strong and supple. Her classes are a moving meditation as she links breath with movement and she has a keen awareness of the ability that music has to move practitioners to greater depths. Inspired by her teachers Shannon Elliot and Amy Cronise-Mead, she teaches Vinyasa classes with special attention to alignment as a way to progress rapidly and safely, and to develop integrity and mindfulness. The eternal student, when Gabi is not on the mat, she is most likely to be found at a library or bookstore; she is in the Rutgers Graduate School studying Eastern Religions and Philosophies as well as Sanskrit. She feels "ridiculously lucky" to have the gift of sharing this practice of yoga with other people.
A Vinyasa Yoga class performed at a WARM temperature (90+ degrees) and taught at a regular Mixed Level pace. A prior yoga practice and knowledge of basic postures is assumed as the class moves quite vigorously. The only difference between a HOT Flow class and this one is temperature. Come prepared to explore physical postures, traditional yogic chanting, breathwork and philosophy. Bring a non skid towel for your mat, hydrate well prior to class and bring water. We recommend that true beginners should start in Beginner Basics (regular temperature) before moving into WARM or HOT classes.
