$5 CASH-ONLY Vinyasa


This class is taught by:

Sara Biondello

Sara began to begrudgingly practice yoga at the prodding of a friend in 2010, but it wasn't until discovering vinyasa yoga four years later that everything started to click. After years of a less-than-balanced lifestyle, Sara learned to listen and made peace with her body rather than fighting it.

 

As a former athlete, Sara appreciates the role of fitness, but has come to redefine health as something greater than lifting heavy things, running laps, or eating on a diet. As Sara's yoga practice deepened, so did her interest in the exploring connection between mind, body, and living well.

 

The connections that started in the studio led to a path of self-discovery and a deep love of healing — physically, mentally, and emotionally, and ultimately to a career in holistic health and nutrition, followed by a yoga teacher training. Sara completed her 200-hour training in January 2016 with the New School of Yogic Arts. Sara believes that in the yoga studio, deep feeling and lighthearted fun are not mutually exclusive. She hopes her classes will bring students same sense of self-awareness she experienced in discovering yoga, especially the begrudging ones.

 

Sara has spent most of her career working with kids and teens in a variety of settings, from group homes to lacrosse teams, and believes that finding the kid still inside is one of the many benefits of yoga practice.

Joanna Rosenberg

From the first day Joanna stepped onto a mat in 2007, she realized she had finally come home. During a time when she was seeking healing--physical, emotional, spiritual-- Joanna found yoga to be a sacred and illuminating container for growth. Her mat became the mirror she used to relearn how to take ownership and care of her body and soul. Learning to teach through The New School of Yogic Arts remains one of the best, most fulfilling decisions she's ever made.

 

Joanna delights in the way yoga can be both a playground and a soft embrace, a tool to navigate spending time on this earth. When not in a studio, Joanna can be found seeking the next adventure- biking around Boston, trekking to the sea, reading, rock climbing, and traveling. In her heart she holds the warmest gratitude and love for her teachers, who continually guide her toward a path in which yoga is a living tradition both on and off the mat.

Gerard Samson

Gerry Samson’s relationship with yoga has been an evolving and life-altering experience. Gerry rowed through college and devoted much of his body and time to the sport. Weight lifting and long training hours left his body broken down, and aches and pains developed, which followed him beyond college graduation. He began attending occasional community classes, but yoga felt contentious at first; the asana practice of yoga seemed out of reach for his body. However, as Gerry’s body began to accept his asana practice and he began to reap its benefits, yoga became a necessary part of his life. This love lead him to Ame Wren’s teacher training at Boston Yoga School, where he completed his 200-hour certification.
 
Gerry graduated with a B.A. in psychology and philosophy, and throughout college worked with children of various educational needs. When he graduated, he sought to keep working with children with special needs. During the day, he is a behavioral therapist for children with autism at a small special education school. He has found that yoga helps his students focus better throughout their day, and gives them an opportunity for body exploration that they don’t get in a regular school day. Just as yoga helped bring Gerry comfort in his own body, he hopes that by sharing yoga with kids and encouraging their own exploration of movement, they can become comfortable and confident in themselves.
 
Gerry aims to teach well-aligned postures throughout a thoughtful vinyasa sequence. He likes to take his time in his practice, exploring new movements and ways to experience a pose. His yoga is influenced by his teachers Ame Wren, Peter Crowley, and Nicole Clark, who are constantly changing his yoga experience.
