Yula discovered yoga casually working out at a gym with friends, and little did she know that she would soon embark on a journey that would transform her life, mind, and body. Yula received her 200-hour certification under Raji Thron, known as " the teacher's teacher" in yoga. Ashtanga and vinyasa style are her main practice; and besides that, her training included hatha, kundalini yoga, restorative and yin yoga. She combines all the different types of yoga into her teaching. As a mother of two beautiful girls, she had never been very athletic or flexible, but her love for yoga soon changed that. “It’s all in the mind,” she often says, and her own personal life is proof that of that strength. Currently Yula is training under nevine Michaan's katonah yoga. Inspired by the Katonah yoga, Yula believes that the human body is designed to fit: like a ball in a mitt, a foot in a shoe, a button in a buttonhole. The more you up your fits, the more you increase your functionality. Expect to have fun discovering your own body in her class, because we are meant to fit in.
Lena began her yoga journey, initially for physical fitness purposes but quickly found that it offered much more, both mentally and spiritually. Lena’s mother, who is an artist and Korean tea master, emphasized the importance of harmony between the mind, body, and soul from an early age, and helped Lena discover that yoga was the ideal instrument for this purpose.
Lena completed her teacher training in 2014 at the Stone Yoga Center, and is a certified RYT 200. Passionate about yoga, Lena became a teacher to share her love of yoga and the benefits it brings, to her students. Lena currently balances her daily life with asana practice and meditation, and has found that it has helped her become a happier, healthier, and stronger woman.
