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.
Breath, Space, Structure; Exploring Pranayama and Movement
with Anne Robinson
Saturday, November 14, 2:30-4:30pm
$20 pre-register/$25 day-of
Join Anne Robinson of the Hudson Valley’s MaMA to understand the true relationship of breath and movement in your vinyasa practice. This workshop will begin with feeling the diaphram move with the breath and progress into experimenting with movement through space, with the awareness on the breath. We’ll watch as the shape of the body changes, how that affects the breath, and note how the breath affects the shape change of the body. We will experiment with and discuss how being in touch with the breath can move the whole being into a deeper and more expansive place.

Jessie Lee Montague (E-RYT)
Jessie 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 thread 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.
