Teachers

Our teachers are classically and anatomically trained to offer students a robust yoga practice that is appropriate for every level of student. Each class will contain poses, breathing exercises and a relaxation at the end. Prior to class, please remind your teacher of any physical conditions which may necessitate modifications to your practice.

  • Nannette Wasserman has practiced yoga and meditation for over thirty-five years. As a teenager, long before yoga was popular, she joined her artist mother in yoga and meditation classes. Together they studied Iyengar and much later, ISHTA yoga. Her teachings focus on building flexibility and strength within the proper alignment while cultivating an open heart. Nannette consistently provides modifications as well as progressions for each asana so that all students, from beginners to advanced practitioners, are able to find their edge and breathe fully and deeply while moving through the poses. She believes a practice of mindfulness and energy management builds personal resilience.
