    Britni Pirog

    Britni first practiced yoga when she was 14, just expecting to get a good workout and she fell in love. Eventually discovering more than just the asana of the practice she began to fall in love with the spirituality of the practice and the connection of the body to the mind. Practicing all over the jersey shore she decided she wanted to bring more meaning to her practice by sharing it with others. She went through a 200 hour teacher training at the center for health and healing getting trained in Hatha yoga and dove deeper into the meaning of yoga.

            Matt Becker


            Matt Becker has been studying the Yoga, The Holy Science of Self Realization, with Sri Dharma Mittra in NYC for 4 years. The yoga they practice is classic Hatha-Raja Yoga. Traditional Hatha yoga deals primarily with the physical yoga postures or asanas. Raja yoga, the King’s yoga, leads one inward towards mindfulness and meditation. The jewel of Yoga is “ the calming of the fluctuations of the mind.” In the Hatha-Raja tradition they use the asana and meditation practice not just to achieve radiant physical health and discharge accumulated stress and tension from the body, but also to stimulate the sixth sense in order to achieve mental and emotional clarity.

            These practices, when practiced in union with the moral and ethical rules, will lead the individual to purification and self realization. One may begin to develop a deeper understanding of their true selves, their relationship with thier physical body and their relationship between their thoughts and their actions. If one continues to practice the asanas daily their bodies will become strong, the meditation will make their minds firm, and thier devotion will make their hearts true. 


              Regina Golden


              Several yrs ago I came to my 1st yoga class at Christian Valeriani’s EvenFlow Yoga & Meditation, with a friend just to check it out. I was hooked ever since. It provided such an experience like nothing I had ever had before. It turned my focus inward, in a day and age when we are so externally focused. This was the practice I needed to provide balance in my life. And that is what I hope to bring into the lives of others through this ancient technique. Not only did yoga help me become more aware and mindful but it provided the tools for me to have a loving relationship with myself. The one person I found it most difficult to love. I was in my early 20’s but felt as though I’ve lived 3 lives already–LOTS of ups and downs. After I began my practice it organically seeped into the rest of my life. I was ready to heal, to focus on me, to love me, to find my footing and let my roots grow. The 8 limbs of Yoga are a powerful practice that sparked the light inside of me and continues to fan the fire. My mission is to help spark the light in others and fan their fire through Yoga. To help uncover the divine that lives in each and every one of us. To bring an awareness to the sea of consciousness that we are all a part of. To let others know, you are never alone. Namaste.

              Teaching style: vinyasa flow with attention to alignment & breathe work.

              Luke Devlin-Hernandez


              Luke’s yoga journey began almost 10 years ago as a junior in high school. Looking for a way to bring new movement and life into his exercise routine, yoga was recommended as a great way to increase his flexibility and help prevent injury during the sports he played. Skeptical in the beginning; his first class left him sweaty and exhausted, but more importantly with a new found respect for yoga. Falling in love with the Ashtanga lineage, he has learned the value of a daily practice and unravels his as much as possible! Hopping to spread the joy of Ashtanga yoga, he jumps at every opportunity to share this gift!
