Flow and Restore


This class is taught by:

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.

Sandy Kalik

Sandy Kalik Bartone found yoga in a moment of transition. Grappling with the constant stream of information and expectations put on a young communications professional, yoga became her way to be physically present, to slow down, to feel.
 
At first, the flowing yoga sequences required so much of her presence and effort to do the poses correctly that there wasn’t any space left for her mind to wander off the mat. While learning to be present in the physical body, Sandy also discovered that asana and meditation provided support for her body and mind in dealing with the day-to-day experience of rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Her personal practice grew from a craving for calm to a place of physical understanding and became a space of exploration and play. Sandy’s classes are known for creative sequencing, making alignment accessible, and providing a safe space for play, silence, and exploration.
 
Sandy teaches vinyasa flow, restful yoga (blending Yin and restorative styles), and AcroYoga (a partner practice mixing acrobatics, asana, and Thai massage).

Taylor Young

Taylor Young first encountered yoga during her adolescence, when she used it as a complementary practice to her athletic pursuits. As is the case for many, Taylor was first drawn to the physicality of the practice, but then it turned into something more. Over the past decade, yoga has become a thread woven throughout her life, which serves as the coalescence of many gifts. For Taylor, yoga is an integral part of her spiritual practice, physical fitness, anxiety management, moral compass, and is a way of practicing discipline for life.

 

Above all, Taylor uses yoga as a method for introspection and self-study. She has found that looking inward, with kindness and curiosity facilitates more effective responses to daily stresses and challenges. This, in turn, nourishes peacefulness, compassion, and integrity.

 

Taylor practices many styles of yoga, including slow flow, Iyengar, vinyasa, and restorative. She weaves elements of these methods into her teachings. Taylor completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Boston Yoga School under the tutelage of Ame Wren. She is grateful for the many teachers and mentors who continue to support her on the path of yoga. Additionally, Taylor is a licensed clinical social worker and provides integrative psychotherapy and counseling throughout the Boston area. She uses yoga asana, meditation, mantra, and mudra in her therapy work. Taylor also enjoys mountains, forests, and oceans as a the regular respite from city living.

Flow and Restore combines the best of Vinyasa and restorative yoga, resulting in a practice that will leave you simultaneously peaceful and renewed. This class begins with a grounding lunar flow to unwind the body and build heat in the muscles and ends with a restorative sequence with a deliciously long savasana, thus preparing the body and mind for a night of good sleep. Whether you are recharging for the week ahead or looking for a mid-week break, you do not want to miss this!
