FACULTY

Meet your facilitators, teachers and fellow practitioners that are currently collaborating on and creating our schedule! Here is a brief interview with each of them! 

 

Name: Veronica
Pronouns: She/Her
Currently teaching: My Anatomy Yin Yoga Wednesdays 7:15pm EST with Greta Rose
Veronica, what do you love about yoga? 
Many things, but the relationship between yoga and community is the most inspiring and meaningful part. 
What are you currently studying?
I am a massage therapist, and I am interested in movement science, injury rehabilitation, pain science, and somatic awareness. I teach Yin Yoga because for me, it taps into these subjects. I can't stop studying it, and the more I study it the more I love sharing/teaching it!
How folks can find more out about you? 
Find me on instagram @veronicadye :-)

Name: Niv

Pronouns: They/She

Currently teaching: Half Hour Home Flow on Tuesdays at 9am (& Greta teaches Thursday!)

Niv, what do you love about yoga?

I love that yoga helps me face my inner demons while giving me friends at the same time!!

What are you currently studying?

Some of my life long studies include documenting the experience of this queer brown body, poetry as a form of healing, the blessing/burden of an Indian family, and how to feed myself regularly. The thing I want to learn most, though, is how to be on my phone less.

Name: Greta Rose Heller
Pronouns: she/they
Currently teaching: My Anatomy: Yin, Half Hour Home Flow, Tuesday at noon Vinyasa, Lunar Yoga Nidra 
Greta Rose, what do you love about yoga?
Everything. The rich cultural context with its origin in India. The movement. The attention it harnesses. The awareness, proprioception and embodiment it lays the foundation for. Also the Hindu goddesses are so powerful and cool. 
What are you currently studying?
How can I live my yoga practice through my actions, expressions and communication (some current remedies entail: pushing social change, abolition, emergent strategy, meditation and being really mindful of how I’m in relationship with anyone and everything.)
I love studying anatomy because it helps me speak to the intention of a pose which is unique for everyone and less about meeting an expectation or pre-determined mold. 
Also I have been diving deep into yin with Veronica Dye for awhile now!

Name: Emily 
Pronouns: she/they
Currently teaching: Vinyasa, Lunar Yin and Yoga Nidra, Ecstatic Peace, Yoga Study, POSEUROBICS
Emily, what do you love about yoga? 
I love that it is a practice. I love that it keeps revealing things to me that feel really magical. I am constantly learning. I love that it keeps me connected to my body. Yoga philosophy and yogic meditation have always been my main interest. And of course I love that it brought me into this kind of energy in community :) 
What are you currently studying?
I am in school right now for certification in Somatic Experiencing. I am studying healing trauma at the level of the nervous system. I am also studying Samkhya with Poseurs in yoga study, which is a wonderful compliment to all of the studying of our human survival responses and how that shaped/shapes evolution. And my own sense of consciousness, always.
