Matt Tavi Fass

Matt Tavi Fass, Adult & Children Yoga Instructor

Matt believes strongly in Yoga's ability to foster more ease in the body and mind, and enjoys sharing his passion for Yoga with others. In his classes he incorporates breath work, chanting, music, meditation, and Yoga philosophy in with the physical postures to provide the best experience he can for his students.

He first came to the world of Yoga after reading the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, one of Yoga's most influential texts. He resonated with the teaching, and in 2015 decided to take his first teacher training with the Integral Yoga Institute. After the training he was invited to return to Integral as a teacher and was also invited to move in, becoming a resident of IYI's ashram. He spent 1 1/2 years at the ashram, teaching many classes and exploring his own Yoga practice. In December 2016 he completed an Intermediate-level training with Integral and moved back to Westchester, where he now teaches Yoga regularly.

J.R.

Mindfulness practice is my passion. For seven years I've been practicing meditation in the Soto lineage. As a practitioner of Tai Chi, my Tai Chi teacher taught me that training the mind and body brings awareness and strength to our posture to then be able to meditate for long periods of time. Training the mind and the body is imperative to reach peek well-being. My aim is to make more adults and children aware that training the mind is just as important as training the body. I'm a 200 hour trained Yoga Master.

Being consistent at working out the body and mind builds discipline, which is a key factor in mind fullness and Yoga practice.

Megan Graham

Megan Graham, Adult & Children Yoga Instructor

Megan is an avid fitness enthusiast. After years of running, training, competing in marathons and triathlons she sought balance. She soon found yoga and knew this was the perfect compliment to her "off the mat" fitness program. She quickly went on to earn a 200 RYT certification.

Using her knowledge of fitness, Megan likes to infuse her classes with core strengthening moves and body-weight bearing exercises as she believes these components along with the lengthening and toning yoga postures practices in her flow classes will offer an experience that leaves you feeling strong, aligned and balanced.

Proper alignment is essential to achieve the full benefit of any exercise or posture. Therefore, Megan encourages a slower flow to build a sturdy foundation from which to grow.

Megan is also the mother of 3 active children ages 15, 13, and 9. In an effort to bring balance and alignment into her home life she introduced her children to the practice of yoga and soon went on to receive training and certifications in children, tweens and teens yoga.
