Tai Chi is an ancient internal martial art; it is also a kind of meditation in movement. It harmonizes the breath, physical movement, and concentration to cultivate the inner energy or life force. On the physical level, Tai Chi enhances strength, flexibility, and balance. On the mental level, Tai Chi similarly enhances strength, flexibility and balance, in addition to creating peace of mind.

Discover the healing power of the shamanic drum and experience the transformative benefits of journeying.
Based on ancient traditions, Shamanic Drumming utilizes a rhythmic drum beat to facilitate participants entering a deep inner state where they are able to connect with many sources of guidance and inspiration. Through the process known as journeying, learn to consciously enter other levels of reality and tap into your own intuitive gifts to manifest positive outcomes for yourself and others. Access inner guidance for clarity and confidence, and feel empowered by new possibilities for your life. Once you have learned the core skills, the practice of shamanic journeying will always be available to you as a means for exploring and developing the inner self.
Drumming as a member of a group provides opportunities for shared learnings, connectedness with others and interpersonal support.
Participation in this class consists of drumming in a circle, journeying, and sharing insights, while in a comfortable position either seated or lying down on a mat.
– No drumming experience necessary.
– Bring a notepad, pen and blindfold or scarf.
– You are welcome to bring your own frame drum, or use one of the drums provided by the instructor.

Nia (pronounced knee-uh), originally an acronym for Non-Impact Aerobics, is a form of fusion fitness that rejuvenates body, mind, spirit & emotions through a variety of movement arts – dance, healing arts & martial arts. Classes offer ~55 minutes of continuous movement, ranging from active and energetic to fluid, slow, relaxed, and even silly. Nia demonstrates form and freedom: provided choreography alternates with short sections of free movement. The practice encourages students to find the freedom to personalize movement choices to suit individual needs throughout the entire class. All ages are welcome. It is not uncommon to engage the voice (“sounding”) as well as the body during class.
Through Pilates you acquire more complete control of your own body. With proper repetition of its exercises, you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and coordination associated with all your mental and subconscious activities. Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, play and work. You will develop muscular power with corresponding endurance without undue body fatigue or mental strain.

Kelley began her yoga journey at the age of 24 after a serious hip injury. She naturally fell in love with her practice and it became a staple in her life. Being self-taught, yoga was always a personal and individual journey – and the thought of teaching never seemed to resonate with her. As the years changed, so did her mindset and Kelley found herself at an ashram getting her Yoga Certification where she taught classes for the first time. She realized the beauty in teaching something you are passionate about and noticed how it deepened her own practice.
Kelley received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Environmental Sustainability, Health and Safety from Rochester Institute of Technology and worked as an Environmental Scientist and Consultant for several years. She later pursued her love of working in the kitchen and earned her certification as Raw Plant Based Chef from PlantLab, located in Venice, California. Currently, Kelley is experimenting with creating artisan vegan cheeses with natural cultures and molds.

John is a Life Coach and Transformation Guide. He spent years trying to fit in — and years figuring himself out. He was raised on a small farm in England. Many years later he found himself stuck at a New York advertising agency doing unfulfilling work for pharmaceutical companies. His interest in personal growth and transformation manifested shortly after meeting with a shaman in 2011. The meeting ignited in him a passion for self-discovery, spirituality and alternative healing. John began studying shamanism shortly afterwards and also became certified as a Reiki Master. He now enjoys supporting people that are looking to grow.
Shamanic Drumming has aided John’s personal growth immensely, and it was through this practice that his life purpose — helping others to heal and thrive — was revealed. John graduated top of his class at Northeastern University with a degree in Communication Studies.

Lesley Lotto began practicing yoga more than 25 years ago in Los Angeles where she grew up. But it wasn’t until she moved to Montana for a radio career that she began a regular and very personal practice. In Missoula, Lesley tried Hot Yoga (because it’s freezing there!), then moved into a sincere appreciation for all styles and lineages of yoga. At that time, one of Lesley’s teachers brought a 200 hour certification training to a yoga studio in Missoula from Prana Mandir Yoga of New York. It was a year of intense study into the history and philosophy of yoga, proper sequencing and learning to lead classes and events.
Yoga Yay! was born in that training with three besties who loved practicing and “geeking out” on yoga so much we would say, “Yoga.. Yay!”. Since then Lesley has done a 300hr. Bhakti Yoga training, Yoga Nidra training, Restorative training, became Reiki 1&2 certified, certified in Thai Yoga Bodywork and Kundalini Yoga and “Untrained and Retrained” answering the call of the Black Lives Matter movement. Lesley has also recently been trained in Medical Qigong and EFT tapping. Lesley has practiced or studied with Sondra Loring and Kelly Kamm, Guru Singh, Seane Corn, Rolf Gates, Bryan Kest, Sri Dharma Mittra, Dana Trixie Flynn, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman-Yee and Gurmukh.
Lesley has an at-home yoga studio where she practices daily and offers private classes. She also produces newscasts for radio stations across the country for her other baby, Remote News Service, podcasts and plays guitar. She resides outside in the Catskills of New York.
Born and raised in the woodsy Catskill Mountains, Joy’s mission is two-fold: engage the power of collective action to make a positive difference in the community, and enjoy the journey while creating the connections to help make it happen. Joy knows the power of a spark of inspiration ignited under the right circumstances. Dance and performing arts have always provided sparks of inspiration, and luckily, she found her way to a barefoot dance floor early in life. Many times over, Joy has benefited from the emotional and physical release of dance medicine and free movement. She uses the inspiration she finds in the groove of music and movement to help unstick herself from the restrictions and challenges that are a normal part of daily life as a human.
Founder of TYS@ The Hurleyville Arts Centre.
Erin relocated to beautiful Sullivan county in 2014. She is Program Director of The Hurleyville Arts Centre and finds great joy in guiding yoga classes. Erin began practicing yoga as a way to heal physical injuries. She began teaching and leading international retreats in 1996 and continues to lead retreats and teacher trainings throughout the NorthEast U.S.
She wrote and implemented a Somatic Yoga syllabus and taught Butoh and contemporary dance at Stony Brook University where she was on faculty for five years. Erin’s classes draw from her love of movement, the influence of kinesthetic anatomy, the investigative philosophy of Irmgard Bartenieff, the quiet passion of 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.
Eileen received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts, majoring in modern dance, from Temple University. She has continued to dance and enjoys helping dancers prevent or recover from injuries. She received her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University, and in 2014 she graduated from Upstate Medical University’s Doctoral Program in PT. After becoming a PT, Eileen has worked in various settings and for a variety of populations for over 26 years.
Eileen continues to take a wide range of continuing education classes in the field of PT. She participated in extensive coursework, application, as well as published research in the Movement System Impairment Approach. Eileen has found that this system of analyzing and correcting posture, repeated daily movements, and the musculoskeletal system has been the most efficient and successful approach for her patients. Another of Eileen’s areas of special interests include helping people understand the power of our brains in increasing our pain as well as reducing pain.
