New Year’s Eve at The Yoga House

Usher in the new year with your extended yoga family!

Kingston’s annual ball drop will be the main event taking place uptown, but our doors are going to be open from 8:00pm till midnight. If you plan to head uptown this New Year’s Eve, drop by The Yoga House for a glass of champagne, a few hors d’oeuvres, or some kid-friendly bubbly. Pop in for a few minutes or hang out for a few hours. The more the merrier, so friends and family are all welcome.

We’re keeping this casual, but we’d love if you’d RSVP so we know how much finger food to order!

 

Beginners Class Added to Our Morning Schedule

New Beginners Yoga Class

Thursdays, 9:30am

Coming November 5th
with Mel Toth

Learn or revisit the fundamentals every Thursday morning at our newly added Beginners Class, 9:30-10:45am with Mel Toth. We all come to the mat with a unique bodily history, and Mel knows how to get to the heart of how yoga can be your best medicine. One of Mel’s gifts is her attentiveness to each individual. She will pay close attention to your specific needs, and she will break down each posture, offering modifications and suggesting props in order to make any newcomer or returning practitioner feel comfortable. Hope to see you in class!

Scott Johnson Takes Over the Monday & Wednesday Morning House Flow Classes

Meet Scott Johnson!

Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:30am

 
Come meet Scott Johnson who has taken over the Monday and Wednesday morning House Flow at 9:30am. A 2015 graduate of The Yoga House’s Teacher Training program, he brings his crew coaching expertise to bear in the yoga studio. He has a gift for communicating the nitty-gritty of asana alignment in an approachable and lighthearted way. Noticing that yoga has been excellent cross-training for this avid skiier, rower & spinner, Scott is eager to share yoga’s physical and psychological benefits with others: “Yoga should be practiced in a spirit of lightness and fun! Like all of life,” he says, “yoga is practice not perfection.” Read more about Scott and other teachers on our Teachers page.

Jessie Lee Montague (E-RYT)

Jessie MotegueJessie has been studying and teaching yoga for nearly two decades. She was co-founder and co-director of Satya Yoga Center in Rhinebeck NY From 2005-2013. Her original studies brought her to Neyyar Dam INDIA where she received her first Teacher Certification. Upon returning back to the states she dove in head first with another Teacher Training Program in Woodstock NY and became one of the first core staff members at Bliss Yoga Center (now Woodstock Yoga). Jessie continues her studies in The Yoga Anatomy Advanced Studies Program through the Breathing Project based in NYC, with teachers Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Mathews. Jessie teaches in the vinyasa tradition from the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and emphasizes an exploration of the breath within the postures, and how the breath both informs alignment and creates a continuous Jess new side crowthread between the postures. Jessie has a non-dogmatic approach to teaching and believes that yoga is an exploration of our entire being: body, breath, mind and spirit. She comes to these practices with joy first and foremost. The intention is to gently navigate our bodies into these beautiful postures which reflect the natural world so that we can better explore our deepest potential and connection to each other and to our planet with grace and lightness of heart.
