Yoga is a wonderful pairing with music lessons. Students not only develop a stretching practice but also learn body alignment, breathing techniques, mind/body integration, and meditation. Yoga for Musicians and Athletes has been specially develop to address the stresses these activities can put on the body and mind and gives students tools to optimize their performance. Unlike most yoga studios, we require that our students commit to a full semester. This allows our instructor, Jemma Tory, to evaluate each student individually and develop a practice plan for them.
Jemma Tory is a mom, yoga teacher, massage therapist and flower designer. She embraces them each fully as they keep her connected to the wonder, beauty, and constant refinement of balance that life teaches. She has always been a mover, studying ballet, gymnastics and diving in her school years. She found yoga after college. She received her initial 200 hour yoga certification with Mary Hart and Daniel Orlanski in 2001 and has studied with teachers such as Natascha Rizopoulos, Kim Valerie, Kat Mansfield and Marc St. Pierre. At Spa Tech Institute she learned about the body from the inside out so she could be a better yoga teacher. She received her 550 hour certification and license in Therapeutic massage in 2012.
Jemma invites you to explore and discover your breath, your body, your soul and spirit in her flow-based classes. Opening up to the here-and-now by starting with the breath and building the foundation and stability of your poses, you can then flow with grace, freedom and joy.
