This class is taught by:

Gail Grossman

Gail Grossman, E-RYT 500, founder of Om Sweet Om Yoga, has been sharing the gift of yoga for decades. Her students describe her as a very nurturing teacher who can quietly touch every muscle in their physical and emotional body, which leaves them feeling relaxed, grounded and happy.
Gail’s book Restorative Yoga for Life has been very well received, ranking in the top 1% of Amazon.com book sales. Her audience extends far beyond the established yoga community, reaching many who have never had a yoga practice.
Gail’s offerings include trainings, workshops and retreats for all levels of fitness. Sharing her knowledge of yoga’s life-changing potential truly feeds her soul. She is grateful to all the students she has met on this journey and is equally grateful for all the teachers present and past who have helped to shape her into the teacher she has become.
Ultimately, Gail’s work is informed by her intuitive inner voice, which has guided her at every step on her path.
Though Om Sweet Om is her baby, she is being called to spread her wings a little further. You can visit her personal website at http://www.gailgrossmanyoga.com

Deborah Corsitto

Deborah Corsitto fell deeply in love with the practice of yoga in 2004, following the birth of her third child, and fell deeply in love with teaching yoga in 2009, when enrolled in Om Sweet Om’s 200-hour teacher training program. Since then, Deborah has maintained a consistent, near-daily practice in the Ashtanga yoga tradition while continuing to teach, study and enjoy the benefits of restorative and vinyasa styles of practice.
Deborah is currently pursuing her 500-hour teaching certification with Cora Wen of Yoga Bloom with an emphasis on yoga therapeutics and has recently completed an intensive 40-hour training in the primary series of Ashtanga yoga with yogi master David Swenson.
Deborah offers challenging yet nurturing flow classes, where students are invited to explore perceived limits, both physically and mentally, and safely move past them. Students credit her lighthearted, unpressured approach and gentle encouragement with making her classes fun, empowering and uplifting, steeped in tradition, but sweetened with fun. She is forever grateful to her primary teachers, Lisa Bondy, Gail Grossman and Sara Intonato, and most profoundly thankful for the life, legacy and teachings of her guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

 

Elena Box

Elena began her yoga journey with Om Sweet Om at the age of 19. At the time she was studying for a BFA in Acting at SUNY Fredonia. Her studies included movement and voice training from the Linklater technique as well as commedia del’arte and stage combat.
After graduation in 2011, she took her yoga teacher training at Om Sweet Om and began teaching there after. Om has truly been her “home” for quite a while now!
Following the terminal brain cancer diagnosis of her father in 2012, she travelled to the amazon to study Peruvian shamanism with the Shipibo tribe. It was this knowledge that helped ground her during the challenging times of coping with grief and loss.
When her father passed in 2016 her yogic path lead her to Australia and Bali to study indigenous wisdom and ancient Balinese healing with Agus Sihman. She practiced yoga passionately at Radiantly Alive in Ubud, while getting trained in Reiki with Devi Ma of Divine Light Healing.
Most recently she studied Kundalini yoga extensively in Los Angeles at Rama Institute with Guru Jagat.
In 2017 Elena felt pulled to round out these profound teachings and became a certified death doula with Olivia Bareham of Sacred Crossings.
Now she proudly calls herself: casual lady shaman, yoga teacher, and conscious comedienne.
Above all, she is happy to be here in service to our great community.
As a yoga teacher, Elena draws from many lineages and practices from all over the globe. To her, yoga is all a play of breath, and a vehicle for expanded awareness and freedom of expression through form. A divinely playful meditation in motion.
When coming to her classes, you can expect to feel held in a ceremonial-like sacred space. She encourages the releasing of breath through voice, and the flowing of your poses in a way that feels best for you. Releasing all expectations of what a yoga pose ‘should be’ and providing a space for you to explore how the poses feel in your body.
Her Open level classes are Vinyasa flow, while incorporating gentle stretching and intuitive movement. Playlists vary from tribal beats, to gentle contemporary, inspiring cinematic –like soundtracks, or even West African music. A feast for the ears is in store for you!
In Restorative she offers her style of hands on shamanic energy healing while you melt into the easeof your relaxing practice. Touch is always offered as an option, not a requirement to receive. Boundaries are key.
Candle light yoga on Friday nights is like a luscious romantic date with yourself. Flickering firelight, sensuous and playful flow, rounded out with a few restorative poses.
This class is for experienced beginners who wish to take their practice to the next level. Vinyasa Flow level one classes include the basics of a flow class, which is a dynamic practice that focuses on combining movement with breath control - an energizing and invigorating yogic experience.

This class is appropriate for all levels of yoga students who have some experience with yoga. The instructor will offer modifications for newer students as well as more challenging poses for advanced students. (not recommended for pure beginners)
