Erin Dudley

Erin Dudley relocated to Sullivan county in 2014. She is a mom, Program Director at The Hurleyville Arts Centre and continues to teach in NYC’s Kula Yoga Project and at Kripalu every July. She was a faculty member for five years at Stony Brook University in New York, where she wrote and implemented the Somatic Yoga syllabus and taught Butoh and contemporary dance. Erin’s classes draw from her love of movement, the influence of kinesthetic anatomy, the investigative philosophy of Irmgard Bartenieff, the quiet passion of Astanga vinyasa, and the rigorous intelligence of Iyengar Yoga. Her alignment cues and energetic directives create a nurturing space for practitioners to fully engage in an investigation of their physical, mental, and psychic condition. Some experience recommended.

“I teach for who is front of me. To create a moving meditation and a quiet inward experience the class will use dynamic sequencing as it coordinates with our breath. We will move as a group but you will be encouraged to adjust the directions to suit your personal needs and I will show you how. I look forward to getting to know you on the mat.”

Joy Leon

Joy has been practicing dance as a modality for personal healing for the entirety of her life. She first discovered Nia in August 2015, while she was working at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY. Although she had been experimenting with Journeydance and 5 Rhythms for years, there was something different about Nia and it was an instant “click”. In her first class, she discovered within herself an effortless sense of visceral power, beauty and grace that she had never imagined could be so FUN to express. Within 6 months, she was stepping in to her first level of teacher training and within a year she was back at Omega sharing the joy of movement. She has since spent 3 weeks as dance/movement faculty for staff and participants. She finds that no matter how many times she steps in to practice, there is always something new to learn and enjoy.
