This class is taught by:

Emily Katz

Emily Katz is dedicated to helping her clients students find balance in all aspects of their lives- emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical.
Living a fast-paced life moving from one activity to another can leave a person stressed and out of balance. Emily’s goal is to learn (and teach) simple tools which help find balance and develop healthy habits. Activities that will help students of all ages find true harmony in all aspects of their lives.

In 2012, while in her senior year at Miami University a life changing event occurred when Emily contracted chronic Lyme disease. The disease not only caused physical and mental discomfort and pain, it also resulted in Emily falling behind in her schoolwork and losing connection with close friends. During this time her father observed that traditional western medicine was not entirely working for Emily and thought that yoga may help alleviate some of the symptoms. Through her teachers teaching’s Emily developed a holistic approach to treating her sickness by incorporating modern medicine, traditional yoga therapeutic remedies and plant-based alternative medicines. Because of this approach to health and wellness Emily no longer has the symptomatic suffering of Lyme disease.

Emily is now vinyasa and yin yoga teacher, kid’s yoga teacher, and journeying towards her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Emily’s goal is to incorporate all aspects of holistic living and encouraging students to become steadfast in their own practices while integrating them into their day-to-day lives.

Noelle Strid

Noelle discovered yoga shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2008 and has been practicing ever since. She was immediately hooked, and was captivated by how much it helped her to build strength both mentally and physically, while allowing her to find peace and serenity. She has always had a love of dance, and is fascinated with the way bodies can find freedom through movement. She also has a background in ecological studies and is deeply passionate about the natural world. Her classes incorporate these notions, while creating a safe and nurturing environment for students to practice and grow. She received her 200 hour RYT at Onyx Yoga Studio in Warren, NJ and will be forever grateful to Shannon Elliot and Inna Hekler and all other teachers past, present and future for sharing their knowledge and love of yoga. She hopes that she can continue to share these teachings so others will be able to realize the same benefits and make yoga a sustainable part of their lives.
Yin Yoga is a simple, quiet, in-drawn practice that uses steady, long-held postures that benefit your “yin,” connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. Poses are held 3 to 5 minutes each with all muscles relaxed and released.
 
Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, that aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. It can be practiced by everybody and will complement an already active life or help those who feel distracted by “mind chatter”.

This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
