“When things change inside of us…….
We can change things around us”
We can teach our children techniques to navigate the stress and anxiety they feel by teaching them yoga and breathing techniques. Susan is excited to combine her love of working with children and the benefits of practicing yoga.
Brianne began practicing yoga in college at Syracuse University to be more active
while also releasing stress. She practiced from time to time until beginning her career as a licensed social worker. Brianne noticed that her anxiety increased, and she started practicing more consistently. Brianne saw how yoga benefited her body and mind throughout her practice and wanted to share that experience with her students. As a Bronx native, Brianne has seen firsthand the lack of representation and access in the yoga and wellness industry, which ignited her desire to be a yoga teacher in the community. She completed her 200-hour training at Yoga Haven in 2020 and began leading classes in Central Park. She has also hosted moving meditations for her organization and showed chair yoga at a Bronx public
Brianne is a charismatic yoga teacher who believes that yoga is for EVERYONE. She wants her students to feel that yoga is accessible and experience everything from joy to calm to laughter in her classes. Brianne teaches vinyasa-style yoga that incorporates movements and sounds inspired by the African diaspora.
Brianne loves a good game night, going to concerts, and traveling. She hopes to continue learning, practicing, and teaching yoga around the world
Margaret “Maggz” Madden discovered yoga about thirteen years ago at a studio in New Rochelle called Westchester Yoga Arts. It began her spiritual journey of recovery, healing, and contribution through her practice. She found yoga provides freedom to play, be, and an opportunity to release perfectionism and make space for acceptance. She believes practicing these principles helps us develop them at a safe distance to better practice them in the world to create our best life. She has guided many first-time yoga students and found the practice to be relatable and intensely supportive to the life journeys of people from all different walks of life. Teaching yoga and watching students open to the method, return week after week, and share the joys they have experienced through yoga has dramatically enhanced her life journey and deepened her passion.
