Lenora Gim

You have to learn to play before you learn to flow... Lenora Gim teaches yoga to both adults and children through her unique and warm approach to the mat.
An avid yogi who has been practicing consistently for over fifteen years, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher certification at Om Sweet Om in Port Washington.
In addition to her more traditional adult vinyasa training, Lenora received her Foundations Training certification from YogaKids with Gail Grossman.
With a teaching style that's both down to earth and intuitive, she incorporates proper alignment and mind-body awareness into creative and spirited sequences that allow yogis of all ages, shapes and sizes to explore their bodies through the never-ending adventure of yoga both on and off the mat.
She currently teaches classes at Om Sweet Om, The Training Station, Friends Together Nursery, and the Port Washington Children's Center.
Although at times she misses Brooklyn, especially mass transit, Lenora has found a home in Port Washington with Gail and the Om Sweet Om community. She is truly honored to be part of this special sangha.

Lisa Stutman-Bondy

Lisa Bondy has been practicing yoga and meditation for more than 15 years. She says " Yoga is central in my life. It gives me strength, flexibility, energy and peace: all qualities that I cannot be without as a mother, as a wife, as a friend,as a person. Becoming a yoga teacher was less of a decision than an evolution. Lisa decided to do the Yoga Zone/Be yoga teacher training with Alan Finger as a way of deepening her practice. It soon became clear to her that the transformational experience was too good to keep to herself. It was also clear that becoming a teacher was a way of fulfilling something very profound to Lisa. Something that the Buddhists call Dharma. or life's purpose. Lisa wholeheartedly believes in the mind/body/spirit connection and the vitality and wisdom that come from that state of being. Bringing Yoga to the community of Port Washington is way of sharing that enlightenment in the hopes of empowering others to see their own light, beauty and inherent power and worth. Since her certification Lisa has studied yoga with several wonderful and well known teachers including Rodney Yee, Judith Lasater, Gabriel Halpern, John Friend, and Baron Baptiste. She has also studied extensively over the last 17 years with some lesser known but equally brilliant teachers including Rachel Gluckstien, Gretchen Carmel, Janice Ventreska, and Joanne and Drew Kane. Lisa has taught Yoga to men and women in the Port Washington community and outlying area through the Port Washington Holistic Massage Center, the Parent Resource Center, the Methodist Church, The Yoga Zone in Brookville, Two Worlds Gym, and to children through Temple Beth Israel Nursery School, and the Port Washington School District ATLAST Program for the past two years. Lisa is looking forward to bringing her energy, love, and vision of transformation to the Port Washington community through her new home at Om Sweet Om.

Beth Lipset

Yoga first came into Beth Lipset's life from her then 2 year old daughter, who was enrolled in preschool and participated in yoga as an activity. She loved how flexible and focused her daughter was becoming and wanted to join in on the fun. She began practicing yoga at Om Sweet Om in 2003, the year the studio first opened. While yoga was initially a difficult thing to schedule into her calendar, it quickly became an element of her daily routine as her desire and need to practice increased.
In 2008, life events escalated her practice of yoga into Beth's "off the mat" life when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yoga not only allowed her to regain her strength and flexibility after several surgeries, but allowed her to find the strength in her mind and focus on her outlook on life.
Wanting to share and give back all that yoga did for her, she enrolled in the yoga TT at OSO.
She became a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 teacher, and a YogaKids instructor, in the summer of 2011.
She loves to integrate many modern music styles within her classes and it is not uncommon to hear the Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Luther Vandross, Train or Little Feat in one session.
Beth's Mantra: "have peace in your thoughts, have peace in your words, have peace in your heart."
