Gentle


This class is taught by:

Johanna Garvey

Johanna Garvey, RYT-200, began her yoga journey in 2005 at Yoga for Everybody in Fairfield, CT. She received her 200-hour certification from Kim Valeri’s Yoga Spirit Studios® in 2009. A native Californian, she brings to her yoga practice her experience in ballet and jazz dance, as well as synchronized and competitive swimming, and infuses her form-and-flow classes with movement and joy. She is attentive to students’ needs, while also creating a safe environment and community atmosphere in her classes. She has taken trainings with Ana Forrest, Desiree Rumbaugh, Todd Norian, Kamini Desai, Koby Kozlowski, Beth Gibbs, and many others, and is in the middle of her 500-hour training. Johanna is also a professor of literature at Fairfield University.

Amy Van Buren

Amy originally trained as a psychologist in the study of mind and behavior. But after experiencing the transformative effects of yoga during her first yoga teacher training in 2008, Amy left her tenured academic position to “bring the body onboard” and pursue her fascination with the intersection of mind, emotion, muscles, posture, and mental states. She is currently a clinical massage therapist and a faculty member at Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy in Westport. Her yoga classes stem from the Viniyoga tradition, which combines breath with gentle, focused movements designed to rebalance the physical body and re-energize the internal state. Amy’s classes are open to all levels of experience, including those with no prior yoga background. Anyone who feels tight, stiff, inflexible, or is intimidated by yoga is especially welcome!
