Release


This class is taught by:

Yvonne C

Yvonne's classes take an alignment focused, injury preventative, and prop supported approach; encouraging her students to build a practice based on incremental growth and rejuvenation. As a Yoga Tune Up® certified teacher, she utilizes corrective exercise, myofascial release techniques, and breathing strategies to help align yoga with her students' overall health and wellness goals. She is inspired by mentors Jodie Rufty and Sarah Bell, as well as Puy Navarro and Mona Anand. 

When not teaching she can be found traveling the world with her partner, writing for film, voraciously reading anything she can get her hands on, and running her not-for-profit theater company Shrunken Shakespeare. Her gluten free and nutritional restrictions find a home at Pisticci in West Harlem for out of this world Italian food.

Sarah M

Sarah opened Unity Yoga in 2013. Unity Yoga's mission is to offer students a tight-knit yoga community without having to leave the neighborhood. Sarah's classes focus on strength and alignment. She began teaching yoga classes in 2005. Her teaching style is influenced by Tiffany Fisk and Jason Brown. In addition to practicing yoga, she enjoys megaformer, trx and bootcamp classes. Sarah moved to Harlem in 2008. Her favorite neighborhood spots are Lenox Coffee and Charles’ Country Pan Fried Chicken.
Release is a slow-moving practice that offers the opportunity to knead & soothe grippy muscles, by way of self-massage and conscious movement. What to expect: With the use of a dense rubber ball, you'll apply sustained pressure & friction to encourage circulation and freer movement. With the use of props (like blocks, straps & the wall) we'll bend, bind, and stretch. Who it's for: Release classes are enjoyed by practitioners who crave slow & intense movement. This class is also great for runners, cyclists, & strength-training enthusiasts. This 60-minute class is held at 85°F. Online pre-registration closes 30 minutes before class begins. Late entry is not permitted. The late-cancellation window begins 12 hours before class begins. Cancellations that take place during that window will result in a charge of $5. Missing class without canceling will result in a charge of $30 (or loss of class credit).
