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.
Tovami Yoga begins its Yoga Alliance registered and approved 200-hour teacher certification program September 14, 2019.
Our Alignment Based Hatha Yoga Vinyasa Program offers a variety of Westchester's long-time expert instructors/teachers, handpicked for their knowledge, compassion and ability to inspire. You will receive one-on-one instruction to equip yourself for your personal yoga journey, whether it be cultivating self-knowledge or an inspiring career as a teacher. From multimedia anatomy presentations to deep hands-on asana knowledge, meditation and ancient healing mudras, you will take a giant step towards your personal success and fulfillment. Plus, you’ll have FUN & connect with a wonderful, lighthearted community!
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 Denise! Denise began practicing yoga in 2001 and it was the challenge of the practice that kept her motivated, but the feeling of well being that has kept her in love. Now with a 200-Hour ISHTA Yoga certification, 300-Hour Hatha/Iyengar, and a 40 Hour YogaEd certification, she leads her classes from the heart, in the hope that she can too lead someone to fall in love with Yoga, as her teacher did for her.
1. Tell us a bit about how you found yoga? In 2001 my boyfriend (now husband) suggested we go to dinner with his buddy and new girlfriend who was a Yoga teacher, but before dinner we had to take her class at the famous Reebok Club in NYC.
I expected to do a lot of breathing and be bored but that was the day I fell in love with Yoga, the challenge hooked me! It was my first class and my husbands last class, he’s never practiced since!
2. What can someone expect when coming to your class? Yogis can expect an active, themed and mindful class, I strive to clearly articulate each pose to help make the mind body connection.
3. What’s something about you that no one would expect? I believe in Extraterrestrial Life, my father raised me to believe the Universe is full of life!
4. If you had to choose- favorite yoga pose? Warrior 2!
5. Favorite song? Steve Nicks Dreams.
