Private yoga Testimonials

We thought Yoga would be a passive, soft discipline. Were we wrong. The moves flow one into the other with ease but they go deep within the body to develop strength and flexibility. As mature students–though healthy and fit–we wondered whether Jenny, so young, would be able to work with bodies having age limitations. Once we studied with her we knew we had an excellent Yoga teacher. She is very knowledgeable about the human body and Yoga. AND she observes you carefully to see that you move properly. ALSO she LISTENS! If something is causing distress, she immediately recommends an adjustment. She doesn’t push you to do what your body is not able to do, but yet finds ways to move you forward to develop your body fully from the stage you are at. We never thought that our mature bodies would be able to do the positions we are now doing under Jenny’s direction.

Jenny Gammello has been my Yoga Instructor for almost 2 years now and I have been doing yoga for almost 10 years. She literally has changed my life…mentally, physically, and spiritually. The words I would use to describe her won’t even do her justice until you meet her. She has an amazing soul. Her energy is powerful, yet compassionate, and you can not help but be affected positively by her. My yoga practice has changed dramatically since I met her. I would HIGHLY recommend Jenny to any person, any personality, because I know they will all love her and appreciate her hard work and dedication to them. And, I have to say, that my body is the best it has ever looked!

“I think New York City is the best place to practice Yoga.

Please forgive my paraphrase, but as the song goes,

if you can achieve it here, you can do it anywhere.”

One on one Yoga Practice is an ancient tool and is the way Yoga has been taught for thousands of years. Every student can benefit from the attention and focus of a Private class.

Beginners

If you are in the beginning stages of a yoga practice, private instruction can enhance and solidify the poses and techniques in a safe, personalized environment that will help you get the most out of group classes. Private Yoga can be your entire practice or can be used to enhance your current yoga practice.

Busy New Yorkers

For those of us who can’t seem to find a class time that works with our hectic schedules private yoga is a welcome change! Choosing a time that works for you and having a private class in your home will allow you to relax and get the most out of your practice.

Intermediate/Advanced Students

There comes a time when you want to go deeper into your practice and work on challenging sequences and poses. One on Ones can help you develop the next level of your practice that can be difficult to work on in a group class. Maybe you want to work on Handstand, arm balances, or going deeper with the Bandhas or moving meditation. We will develop and inspire the beautiful practice you already have.

Chair Yoga

One of my very favorite things to teach, Chair Yoga is designed for people that have limited mobility or flexibility. A chair is used to support the poses and allows the student to experience all the benefits of the Asana in a safe and relaxing way. Strengthen your muscles, deepen your breath and stretch with a Chair Yoga class designed specifically for your special needs and in your own home.

Jenny Gammello – Yoga Teacher

Jenny is a native New Yorker and loves practicing Yoga with her neighbors in this amazing city! She received her 200-hour RYT Certification in 2004 at the beautiful Shoshoni Ashram in Boulder Colorado. Since then she has taught in many wonderful places including New York Yoga, Carnegie Mellon Acting Conservatory (where she received her BFA in acting in 2005), and the Williamstown Theatre Festival where she was resident Yoga Instructor. Last year she founded the Yoga Co-op in midtown, a class created to provide affordable Yoga to the performing arts community.

Jenny feels so blessed to be working towards her 500 hour Advanced Certification with her beloved Teacher Shiva Rea. Her own approach to teaching is inspired and deeply influenced by Shiva’s innovative “Vinyasa Flow” method.

Jenny’s classes draw inspiration from the great poet and sage Rumi:

Your essence is gold hidden in dust

To reveal its splendor

You need to burn in the fire of Love.

She hits the mat to burn in the fire of Yoga and sweat it out in the name of Love and Peace. She teaches a passionate, flowing, and VERY playful class and is so grateful to each and every student she has the gift of practicing with.

Inspiration

Shiva Rea and The Flow

Shiva Rea is the creator of Prana Flow Yoga, a style of Vinyasa Yoga that evolved organically out of her decades of Yoga Practice and Teaching. Its root is in the fact that our bodies are not “solid”, but made primarily of water and energy, which Yoga calls “Prana”. Prana Flow is a philosophy of Yoga Practice that stems from the breath and the way bodies naturally want to move. The Flow can be fast paced and strong or deliciously slow, but it is always organic, fluid, and full of freedom.
