Budding Buddhas Yoga & Mindfulness - For all ages
The benefits of yoga for kids are many, including increased focus and concentration, heightened body awareness and self-control, increased flexibility and strength. Yoga for kids helps ease stress and build confidence. It encourages children of all ages to create healthy habits for life.
If I could learn one thing each day, it would be how to love myself and others more fully. With yoga, we will all meet there.
Tovami means community - the name can't be found in a dictionary, nor does it have a country of origin, but has been created. A name to mean community, one letter, one idea, one person at a time. We see everyone as unique and special like Yoga. The focus for us is on building this beautiful yoga community, this "Tovami" honoring yoga as an ancient mindfulness art in our welcoming studio.

This month's Featured Yoga Teacher
Like our Yoga Practioners, our Teacher's are fun & have a unique view that shines brightly throughout each of their classes.
Meet Allison! Allison teaches Gentle/Yin Yoga and Candlelight Restorative Yoga, our featured class of the month! She has a special interest in teaching yoga to students looking to release chronic tension through slower asana, breath awareness, guided meditation, and deep relaxation. She always holds space for healing and self care with nurturing compassion and supportive guidance. We love Allison’s vibrant energy and her ability to authentically connect with others. Practice with Allison every week at the studio and learn a little more about her below!
1. Tell us a bit about how you found yoga?
I was very active at my local gym; my favorite classes were spin, step and aerobics. I noticed a candlelight restorative yoga class on the evening schedule, took the class and experienced a deep peacefulness I had never known was possible. It was the missing ingredient I needed in my life. I have now practiced yoga over 20 years in a wide variety of styles, at different studios in Westchester, Connecticut, and NYC. I was fortunate to practice and study with teachers who have become well-known in the industry.
2. What can someone expect when coming to your class?
Students can expect to de-stress and refresh, stretch and tone, release chronic tension while listening to the inner wisdom of the body . I offer my in-depth knowledge of the practice, clear instruction, creative sequencing and intuitive insight into each student’s needs. I guide my students through a breath-based gentle Kripalu experience that is healing and nurturing. Students are encouraged to recognize and address imbalances in their body with compassion and self acceptance.
3. What’s something about you that no one would expect?
I was a Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a NYC dress manufacturer before teaching yoga full-time.
4. If you had to choose- favorite yoga pose?
Viparita Karani , Legs Up The Wall Pose. It rests and rejuvenates the body especially for those doing a lot of standing during the day.
5. Favorite song?
Pachelbel: Canon in D. Heaven on earth. It’s simple -- three violins, one cello, and eight bars of music repeated 28 times. Knowledge through repetition.
