For Gina, the Vinyasa quality of "moving mediation," coupled with her daily seated meditation, allows her to center herself when her world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Gina feels that Yoga has opened her eyes to see the person within, who she really is. Her practice helped her to find herself at a time when she felt lost. Gina believes that human nature is an important aspect of teaching yoga and a path to gain insight into others as well as one’s self by giving and receiving (sharing) the gift of yoga.
In addition to yoga, Gina has an extensive interest in things that make the world culturally diverse and intrinsically reachable for the individual. She has a big love for the arts; dancing, photography and painting; often examining the deeper meaning behind brush strokes, the artist and the culture or history that arose from a certain piece.
Gina holds her BA in Fine Arts, from Saint Joseph’s University. In the future, she plans to continue her education and receive her Masters Degree in Nutrition.
In her classes, Jamie encourages her students to be expressive in their practice in a way that feels authentic to them. Taking time to dig deep within a pose, connect to their breath and make each practice their very own. In addition, Jamie feels most at home on the beach, and also enjoys gardening.
Yoga continues to be a source of inward and outward exploration and balance in her everyday life.

Taking inspiration from her dance background, Karen’s style incorporates stretching and gentle flow, combining breath with movement. Her humor and gentle encouragement provide a relaxed environment for all students. She believes everyone should leave class feeling content.
When she’s not on her mat, Karen enjoys reading, cooking, dining al fresco, shopping in downtown Stroudsburg, and spending time with her husband and son.
I remember the first time I walked into a class, which was probably in 2005 so I would have been 21 years old. While in college, I rented a room in a house that actually had an operating yoga studio in the living room. One day I wandered downstairs. I was always curious about it. I loved the movement and the philosophy and everything that I saw. I have had a lot of life experience since then with my health, my spirituality, despair, and have found that it was yogic tradition (whether I knew it or not) that always restored me to life.
Now, I’ve established a strong practice again and I can’t wait to share the love I feel in my heart.
My degree is in language studies and psychology. I’ve worked in restaurants, publishing, building sound equipment, preschool classrooms, substance abuse rehabilitation. I love the arts, music, cooking, and travel.
I am so honored and grateful for the opportunity to have a practice in my life and it seems that the more I learn about it, the more I learn about everything. Yoga, or union with life, can be found in anything - anything that aides the ebb and flow of life within. I want everyone to find freedom from their asthma, broken bones, aching muscles, racing minds, and sense of bondage. And I want to help my students create a space they can’t wait to be in, both on and off the mat.
