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 PractiTIoners, our Teacher's are fun & have a unique view that shines brightly throughout each of their classes.
Meet Jillian! Jillian began her practice in 2010 for the physical benefits, but soon realized the deeper benefits of yoga. She found the more she committed to her practice, the more challenging mental aspects of staying present and moving with intention began to manifest in day to day life. Jillian acknowledges the individuality of each person and the story they share with the universe and hopes to influence their path through yoga. We love Jillian because she is kind, inspiring, and holds space for everyone through her open-heart teachings. Get to know a little more about her below!
Q: Tell us a bit about how you found yoga?
A: My gateway in to yoga was definitely physical. Growing up I was always involved in sports and in high school I began taking yoga classes at the gym I joined. In 2016 my mom came home with information regarding a teacher training at Tovami Yoga in Mamaroneck. I had never taken a class there before but I registered and dropped off my deposit days later. Looking back on my practice before my training, I have NO idea what I had even thought yoga was. My practice has so drastically evolved and I am so grateful for the experiences that have shaped it.
Q: What can someone expect when coming to your class?
A: Expect the unexpected! Haha just kidding...kind of! I always teach from a place of efficacy so whatever is showing up on my own personal mat is usually what arrives in class. This means a pretty gentle/restorative pose with breath work to start, some time to flow, and then cooling back down with again some more gentle/yin like poses. Come check it out!
