Yoga to Andie means breathe. The practice of yoga is seamlessly intertwined in how we live our lives every day. After completing her YTT 200 hours at Satsang Yoga Studio in Westfield, NJ in 2012 she’s continued her education at Yoga Shanti with Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee’s 100 hour advanced TT and a mentorship with Heather Lilleston in NYC at Yoga Vida. In Andie's classes you will find that she brings a lifetime of movement, power, and flexibility to each series and an invitation to bring your breath and questions. Her goal is to show you that through the physical practice of yoga, you will feel empowered and learn more about yourself both physically and emotionally. When she’s not on her mat you can find her with her feet in the sand. An avid surfer and ocean lover she’s constantly chasing the tide. For her there is never enough time in the sunshine, but there is always time for a smile and a laugh.

Originally from Lima-Peru, Mateo moved to New York City in 2010 to study at The Neighborhood Playhouse School Of The Theatre. After graduating in 2012 Mateo took his first yoga class and hasn’t stop practicing since. ‘I remember feeling a strong internal joy as I moved my body in sync with my breath and all the people around me. I left the class with such clarity and groundedness, something I had never experienced before.' After a few years of daily practice his love and curiosity to deepen this knowledge in yoga and its roots led him to take a 200hr teacher training at YogaVida to get certified as a Vinyasa Yoga instructor.
Thanks to his training in theater Mateo infuses elements of Alexander Technique and Modern Dance to his warm ups and combines dynamic and strengthening sequences in order to flow seamlessly from one pose to another at the beats of an electropop or indie music playlist. Mateo’s goal as an instructor is to share what yoga has taught him and hopefully help people leave the room physically and mentally lighter and than how they originally entered.
Molly is an 800 hour certified instructor who is humbled to share her love of asana by guiding others through their own journeys to explore this relationship, creating balance to quiet the mind and nourish the soul. Her trainings in Ashtanga, Iyengar & Hatha traditions lay the groundwork for her classes, combining fluid sequencing with breath awareness and balance to create mindful movement. Her education is strongly rooted in foundations of yoga therapy and hatha yoga with attention to precision and alignment, so each class is keenly in tune with the body with respect to symmetry and maintaining spinal integrity. She strives to create an experience of consciousness and spaciousness that is both challenging and accessible to all levels of experience, and her love of music shines through in each class.
Yoga is the union of breath, body and mind. First and foremost Molly is a student. The practice of yoga in her life extends far beyond the mat and she is grateful for the opportunity to honor her teachers by sharing this with students, and hopes to inspire this same love in each one of them.
