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. Britni hopes to change lives by giving people the gift of yoga through out her own personal journey.

      Kathryn Dorando


      200-RYT. As a Libra who knows the importance of maintaining balance in life, yoga was my answer. Seeking balance brought me to yoga ten years ago, and that sought after balance is what keeps me there. I like to think of yoga as the dance of the heart, exhibited through asanas, carried by the breath. Every movement, every moment, counts. There is a long road of learning ahead, and it’s the journey that counts.

After leaving her corporate gig in fashion where she felt burnt out and unhappy, she left on a lone trip to India where she realized she could do anything she wanted, as long as she put her mind to it. She found Yoga after she experienced anxiety attacks and needed a coping mechanism for stress. It has saved her everyday from there forth. She strives to make yoga accessible to everyone, loves alignment and the philosophy aspect for it gives guidelines to happiness and brings one closer to their true Self.

            Amy Leonard

A serious practitioner of mantra & meditation, she draws inspiration from her love of eastern philosophy mainly Tibetan Buddhism. Intrigued by the sitting posture of Buddha, Amy often felt drawn to feel the peace Buddha experienced. In her heart awakened, the path of yoga has limitless healing potential that benefits the mind, body, and spirit. Known for her warm and approachable style of teaching, she encourages students to find their own unique expression. To Amy, the asana practice in not about the reaching the most advanced postures, but rather connecting to your authentic self on the mat and weaving that into daily life. Though teaching is her passion, Amy remains a student at heart, she is grateful to all the teachers past and present who have guided her along the way. She currently resides in New Jersey, where she teaches private and public lessons. Amy received her 200hr VinyasaYoga Certification from Even Flow Yoga.
