Astanga Vinyasa Level 1 & 2
Teacher: Kyle Goldstein
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.
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. Students will experience improved stamina, reduction of anxiety and stress, increased clarity of thought, general well-being, and an overall sense of serenity. By the end of each class, the goal is to have a better feeling and a stronger connection between the mind, body, and soul. Oh yeah, prepare to sweat!
Kundalini Yoga: Open level (Begins Tuesday May 14) | $10
Teacher: Kathy McKenna
Kundalini yoga is a unique system of yoga practice that combines breathing, meditation, and simple physical postures in a specific sequence and balances the endocrine/hormonal and nervous systems.
This class will benefit everyone and is specifically designed for beginners! The 55-minute class begins with warm-ups and ends with relaxation and a brief meditation. Easy to learn techniques will combine to result in the experience of mental, physical and spiritual balance for all students.
Teacher: Kayla Vurckio
Learn the foundation of pilates to start building core strength, increase flexibility, and awareness. Using your own body as resistance, you will grasp a mind/body connection to control your motions to move fluently from one exercise into the next. By stabilizing your core, you learn to guide the movements through your breath, challenging yourself by keeping a part of the body still while moving another.
For those who have practiced Pilates before, this is a chance to reconnect to your core, finding deeper level of concentration and control.
Self Love Date Night: Open level Hatha Vinyasa + Deep Rest
Teacher: LeeAnna Maniace
We expend a lot of energy looking outside of ourselves for wellbeing. Make space to gather some tools for self -care; a weekly date with yourself to replenish and look after you.
A one hour gentle but thorough Vinyasa class utilizing sun salutes, standing and seated poses, followed by 30 minutes of self care via: ball rolling (self massage) yin and or restorative poses. All with Leeanna’s essential oils. YUM!
Experience with Hatha Yoga recommended. Healthy hedonism; we’re all about it.
Open Level Mat Pilates
Teacher: Kayla Vurckio
Flow through the exercises in Open Mat class to burn calories while working deep into your abdominals. You will learn to synchronize your breath with the movements and master the essential exhale through exercises that support and accentuate the movement. All to gain control of your core, release stress, tighten the abdominals, and elongate the body. When practiced regularly, long lean “dancer body” muscles are achieved.
In this class, bands, magic circle and other props may be used at times. All levels are welcome, modifications will be made if needed.
Teacher: Sharon Molloy
In the tradition of Viniyoga this class uses breath as our guide for gentle, slow flowing movements as we explore sensations, focus the mind and soothe the nervous system. This can help increase mental clarity, improve sleep and calm anxiety. Slow mindful movement reduces stress and other effects from our fast paced and complex lives. This practice is perfect for beginners, and anyone who is looking to slow things down and enjoy some deep relaxation. *don’t want to sit on the floor? No problem we have chairs that we can show you how to use in yoga class*
Hatha Vinyasa with Wall support
Teacher: Erin Dudley
This class builds slowly towards dynamic sequencing as it coordinates with the movement of the breath. Emphasis is on exploration and experimentation with a close observation of mental and physical responses. Props and rope wall support are used to support the intelligence of the body and decompress the spine to reduce inflammation. You will be encouraged to adjust the directions to suit your personal needs. Experience with Hatha Yoga is recommended.
Teacher: LeeAnna Maniace
The best way to transition from weekend to workweek! Using passive stretching, breathing techniques, gentle preparatory poses, and supportive props we will investigate ways to engage your mind, make your body comfortable, balance your nervous system and send you off for a great night sleep.

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.”
