Sara Beck



Sara Beck became a devoted yoga student in 2001 when it became clear that her body, after many years as a competitive athlete, needed to be given a new kind of attention and care.  Her subsequent formal and informal studies of various schools of yoga including Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini yoga as well as her practices of meditation and Reiki energy work have brought a level of spaciousness and ease to her life that she never thought possible.  In 2009, she received her 200-hour YTT from Prajna Yoga, and it was with Tias and Surya Little that she deepened her understanding of alignment, mindfulness, intelligent sequencing and breath-centered practice.  Sara offers private lessons and group classes in a vinyasa style while bringing attention to thoughtful movement, focused breath and anatomical alignment. It is her honor and great hope to help students tune in to the unique dialogue within their own bodies and minds – that whispering communication between breath, movement, and stillness – and to help them find a little more balance and to shine a little brighter.
Sara also offers private and group yoga instruction for pregnant and post-natal women where they can explore and become acquainted with their transforming bodies.  Inspired by her 85 hours of study at Integral Yoga Institute as well as a variety of other resources and styles, Sara’s classes gently support women to find rest, replenish energy, build strength, and connect with the innate courage and wisdom that all mothers have.


Selena Reynolds 

 She began her yoga journey as a student at Bard College in 1998, and through her practice is gradually becoming more able to make sense of life on this planet and the intricacies of being human. She finds that the practice of yoga teaches her to stay balanced, open, and joyous, as she strives to act with love in every situation. These situations usually involve cookie dough, handstands, and her three rapidly growing children.  Her classes are informative, exploratory, and fun, and designed to leave students feeling nourished, balanced, rejuvenated, and empowered.  Her teaching style is light-hearted and playful, and incorporates both intelligent vinyasa flow and held postures with detailed breath and alignment instruction to help students develop stronger connection within themselves through movement and concentration. Selena has been teaching for three years and is trained through the advanced level, 500 hours.
