YOGA AND MOVEMENT

Yoga classes at With Intentions Holistic Studio welcome all levels of ability to practice mindful yoga as one. Skillful teachers offer pose variations to provide greater accessibility to all, while we focus on the flowing movement of our pranayama (breath work) and the foundation of basic yoga asanas (poses).

She likes to live by the principles of passion and love in a way that helps others see this reflection within themselves. Erica received her 200 hr RYT from the Maui Yoga Shala in 2018 and is also certified in trauma sensitive teachings. Erica grew up classically trained in ballet and has transitioned this into a barre certification. In addition Erica has completed reiki level I&II and plans on continuing towards level III this year.

Sarah has been a fitness and wellness professional since 2008, beginning her work and practice in NYC and then returned to her roots at the Jersey Shore. Her background was first in functional and corrective exercise and nutrition. Her life experiences, travel, and work eventually brought her into her holistic and spiritual practice which she is now available to offer to others along the path.  Sarah believes linking movements with breathe work can realign our natural rhythm and flow with the universe. When we can clear our minds and focus on the goodness life provides, we will be in our most natural, harmonic state with our environment. 

After being a student of yoga for over 10 years, Sarah received her 200hr yoga teacher training certification through Jandee and Pure Bodhi Yoga.  Sarah has a strong belief that natural conscious living through movement and the energy we can produce, plays a part on the world as a whole. As individuals can connect with their personal abilities and passions, we can empower ourselves and others to live an optimal, healthy lifestyle. When we let go and become one with our current natural environments, the true vital perspective of ‘being here now’, can be achieved.

Just as individualized instruction was important in her classroom, it now translates to the mat and meeting the students where they are…

Dana discovered her passion for yoga during a rough time in her life. She was mentally drained and surrounded by negativity. Yoga allowed her to breathe in the positive future and exhale the past.

She believes that yoga is a beautiful sequenced dance, that you share with love ones, heavens, and the earth.
