Joy LeVine Abrams

Joy is co-creator of THE FLEXIBLE PAINTER, an art and yoga retreat in Madison, CT and Tuscany. She has an M.S. in Biology and Nutrition.

Ariadne Drakonakis-Kambas

Ariadne is a 500 hour certified Kripalu yoga teacher and has been teaching yoga since 2003. She is also a licensed massage therapist, occupational therapist, and is certified in Kripalu Yoga in the Schools, and Pre/Postnatal Yoga and Massage Therapy. Ariadne weaves yoga postures, breathwork and meditation into her classes as a means of cultivating presence and nonjudgmental self- awareness. Ariadne's classes remind us to ride the waves of our life with compassion, and to allow life to flow through us with ease and grace. She believes the practice of yoga awakens the natural intelligence of the body-mind- heart- and spirit thereby guiding us towards a more awakened and compassionate engagement with life.
Gentle (Kripalu) This yoga class is a gentler version of the Level 1. It is a Kripalu-inspired, meditative class with longer holding for a deep, "in-body" experience. Lots of silence to enhance the peaceful nature of yoga. Emphasis on breath, trusting the body's wisdom and Eastern philosophy. If you have issues with blood pressure, knees, shoulders, or other joints, this might be a better class for you than Level 1, and it is a good starting point for a new person.
