Sattva Flow Level 1


This class is taught by:

Samantha Cagman

Sam began her practice as a way to regain balance and strength after a severe ankle injury and to aid in coping with the battles of anxiety and insomnia. During her practice, she began to experience a deep connection to not only the body, but to her mind, that inspired her to share this passion with others. . Inspired to teach, she received her 200 hour teacher training from Pure Yoga (NYC). Her teaching styles root themselves in Iyengar and Forrest lineage. Her classes are infused with mindful movement, breath awareness, and flowing sequences that are designed to focus the mind and cultivate balance between strength and flexibility in the body. Instructing from the heart, Sam is dedicated to bringing self-love, self-motivation and self-adoration principles into every class and to making each student feel welcome, comfortable, and safe during her time spent with them on the mat. Samantha is known for her authentic, non-judgmental teaching style, including class themes devoted to Female Empowerment, Self-Love, and Personal Motivation. She hopes to inspire and empower her students during every class, which she believes makes the world just a little bit better each time.

Kishan Patel

Kishan Patel is a local instructor born and raised in Jersey City. He began his practice in 2013 to pursue mental and physical balance. Bred as an athlete playing basketball, training with gymnasts and bodybuilders, Kishan gained a conscious awareness of the body. Kishan received his credentials as a 200 hr RYT from Yoga to the People in 2016. Shortly after the leaving the fashion industry, Kishan began sharing his creative process through his practice. His classes are form and flow oriented leading students to build a better awareness of their body and encouraging a safe, playful and transformative practice. He is a firm believer in form following function, and if you function properly things will form themselves.

Karen Mandell

 
Karen Mandell E- RYT 500
Studio Owner/Teacher

 

Karen began practicing yoga in 1998 as a means to escape her fast paced life as a fashion executive in New York City. She soon discovered how a regular yoga practice brought a much needed balance to her life on both a physical and spiritual level as well as a deeper connection with herself and the world around her. She was called to teaching in 2009 and received her 200-hour certification from the Bright Spirit Yoga Teacher training with Jillian Pransky and Carrie Parker. She later went on to receive her 300-hour training and certification at ISHTA Yoga in NYC with Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger. Karen also received her Advanced Level Restorative and Therapeutics Yoga Training with Jillian Pransky at Yoga Works as well as her  Yin Yoga Levels 1 &2 certification with Ulrica Norberg and additional Yin Yoga  trainings with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley.

 

She began teaching to teachers herself in 2013, sharing what was shared with her by these masters in various teacher training programs as well as her own Sattva Yoga Restorative Yoga training and Yin Yoga training.

 

Karen delights in teaching family yoga as well, she received both her her Kid's and Family Yoga training with Karma Kids as well as Post-Natal and Yoga Mom Buddha Baby Training with Jhotyi Larsen in 2011.

 

Classes with Karen invite a joyful opening in body, mind, and heart. Her classes are tailored from the traditional ISHTA lineage of chakra-based vinyasa yoga. ISHTA stands for the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda.  Her classes combine the graceful flow of Vinyasa yoga and the mindful alignment of Iyengar yoga with balancing pranayama (breath), kria and meditation techniques. The word Ishta translates from sanskrit as "that which resonates with the individual spirit". She believes that yoga is all about finding the balance within ourselves that exists inherently but simply needs to be rediscovered by removing the obstacles that keep us from being our authentic selves and finding our connection with Jiva Atman, the unique spirit that resonates within all of us.

 

Melie Purdon

 
Melie discovered yoga as part of her acting training when she moved from Paris to New York City in 2008. It's the link between movement and breath that drew her to come back to the mat between rehearsals and later throughout both pregnancy and postpartum. When not attending yoga classes or teaching them, you can find Melie practicing yoga off the mat while playground hopping all over Hoboken and Jersey City with her two daughters and her husband. Melie earned her 200hr certification at the Hudson Yoga Project, under the brilliant, passionate and oh so inspiring Patrick Franco Jr, Anna Greenberg, Julie Pasqual and Erica Arcé. Continuing her education for prenatal yoga under Kimberleigh Weiss-Lewis. Melie's classes are playful , carefully sequenced and always full of love, light , good tunes and geeky alignment cues.
This 60 minute class teaches the foundations of Vinyasa flow yoga through a well-rounded sequence of postures designed to balance the body and mind as well as uplift the spirit, with an emphasis on breath and healthy alignment.
