September 4 – Intro to Ashtanga Yoga with Kyle Goldstein
This class will be energetic and dynamic, combining flexibility and strength while preserving a sense of inward focus and dedication. There will be a strong emphasis on helping students find proper alignment before shifting deeper into a pose. The goal is to have a better feeling and a stronger connection between the mind, body, and soul.

The word “Ashtanga” means having 8 parts and “Vinyasa” means flow. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga works with the synchronization of deep, rhythmic breathing and movement. By linking the postures it creates a continuous flow of energy that heats up the body, bringing oxygen to the blood, nourishing the glands and internal organs, cleansing and purifying the nervous system, and releasing unwanted toxins through perspiration.

Kyle started his spiritual journey over 10 years ago and fell in love with the way the practice calmed his mind and energized his body. At first it was a hobby, which quickly became a part of his routine, and then fully blossomed into one of his life’s passions. So much so, that in the summer of 2018, he completed his 200 hour YTT at the Ashtanga Mysore Yoga Shala in Mysore, India. He truly believes that people have the ability to change, to adjust their lifestyles in a way that makes them a better version of themselves one day at a time. Kyle is extremely blessed to be back in the place he once called home, and eternally grateful for the opportunity to share his knowledge and experience through his business, A New Breath Health & Wellness.

October 2 – Slow Flow Vinyasa with Rebecca DeRosa

Rebecca’s Slow Flow Vinyasa is a beginner-friendly yoga class that will include flowing sequences with one pose leading to another.

Rebecca will offer different options and variations of poses so that you can adapt the practice to your own needs and preferences.

After years of practicing yoga off and on, Rebecca took the next step and traveled to Dharamsala, India in 2015, where she completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Siddhi Yoga.
