Why move and meditate with me?
Sure laughter is still the best medicine but did you know that the benefits of yoga and meditation are numerous and impressive? Better immune system, improved balance, increased flexibility, greater creativity, better sleep, less stress...and that's just the beginning. Nothing to laugh at there! And yet, when I became a certified yoga instructor, I vowed that my teaching style would always be true to my personality. So taking a class or workshop with me, you can be sure that there will be equal parts laughter and vulnerability. I will guide you playfully through movements that will make your body feel good. The tunes will be bumping and the words of encouragement and guidance will come from a place of humility and joy.
Where can you move and meditate with me?
I am not currently teaching at any studio regularly as I'm thoroughly enjoying a maternity leave with my beautiful newborn Katherine. However, I will be hosting some workshops later this fall, which I will post here. I am also always available for private gigs - think corporate yoga, parties, team practices, etc. I've worked with the Masconomet Regional High School swim and ski teams, students and faculty at Landmark School, and the staff of 128 Technology. See my contact page if you'd like to hire me!
Here's what some folks have said about my classes:
"If you’ve ever worked at a startup, you know that the hours away from your computer screen are limited and the stress level can be high! When the opportunity arose to have Ari come into our office to run a yoga session for our employees, we were thrilled! We couldn’t wait to take an hour to relax, center ourselves, and get a good workout in! Ari led us through a peaceful meditation to start, and prepared us for a challenging set of poses that stretched and engaged us! She gave alternative poses for people with different levels of experience, so everyone could follow along. She ended the practice with a relaxing savasana that we never wanted to end! Ari is a mindful and caring instructor, and left the most novice yogi feeling like they could accomplish anything! We were so lucky to have her, and cannot wait for our next session!" - (Harleigh at 128 Technology)
"I've taken Ari's class a few times now -- and it's amazing! If I had to choose my favorite part (which is hard because they truly are so many), I'd say that the calmness and inspiration I immediately feel when stepping into her class is incredible. If you want to be uplifted and balanced, take Ari's class!" - (Victoria at 128 Technology)
"I was a big fan of your yoga class today for ski team. It was lots of fun and very relaxing." - (Johnny at Masco)
