Adriana Bateh

Adriana Bateh

Yoga Instructor

I began my yoga practice by completing a 30 day Bikram yoga challenge with a friend of mine. We spontaneously signed up for the challenge as part of a New Year's resolution. I didn't have many expectations when I began my yoga practice. I didn't play sports in school, I was never an athlete, and I wasn't even very flexible. In the beginning of my Bikram challenge, I looked around the room in awe as I saw other yogis effortlessly perform poses that I thought seemed impossible. I never let this get me down. In fact, as I was practicing, I would simply tell myself, "That's not for me. I'm not a yogi. I'm not a dancer. I'm not an athlete. I can't do that." I thought that I was being practical, but I didn't realize that I was putting limitations on myself. I was inhibiting my own growth by telling myself these poses were impossible. Outside of the yoga room, I had also been inhibiting my personal growth, scared to take action in my own life. Over time, the yoga began to work on me. At the end of the 30 days, I made remarkable progress and changes that I never even anticipated. I became so much more comfortable and in-tune with my body. I started wearing less clothing in the hot room, and I was no longer ashamed of what I saw in the mirror. I learned, through the strength and power of my own body, that I was limitless... my life was limitless... and anything and everything was possible and open for me to try. I continued to grow my yoga practice with constant curiosity, exploring my body and getting to know myself even better. In 2013, I found my way to Sacred Brooklyn, where I eventually completed my 200 hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training. I now regularly practice yoga from a variety of disciplines, including heated Vinyasa, Baptiste, and Jivamukti. Yoga, for me, has been a beautiful process of self liberation. I was keeping my soul locked in a cage, and with each practice, I feel myself opening up like a flower petal blooming. As a teacher, my goal is to help others find liberation and love for themselves. My classes contain a mix of sensual poses and powerful flows, set to a soundtrack that blends R&B, trip hop and soul. I encourage students both to mindfully embrace challenge and to luxuriate in the sensations of their own bodies. When we open our hearts to the world, the love flows back.

Brandilee Coon

Brandilee Coon

Yoga Instructor

Brandilee completed her 200-hour Power Yoga teacher training in 2016 with Amazing Yoga (Yoga Alliance certified program based in Pittsburgh, PA). Her passion for yoga is only matched by her passion for travel which explains why she completed her Level 1 training in Tulum, Mexico and Level 2 training in Nosara, Costa Rica. To Brandilee, the essence of yoga and travel are the same: they deepen your relationship with yourself and the world around you. The interconnectivity between self and community is imperative to understanding this thing called life. Her classes focus on bringing the community together through celebrating individuality and the present moment.

Additionally, Brandilee is an advocate for women’s health issues. Her personal journey with endometriosis and yoga go hand-in-hand and she strives to help other Endo Warriors find peace with their symptoms through asana and meditation. Off her mat, Brandilee is a sports TV producer and an activist for animal rights and wildlife conservation.

Joe Fedele

Joe Fedele

Yoga Instructor

Joe completed his intensive yoga teacher training at a remote retreat center on the Big Island in Hawai'i. He is a Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor, CPR/AED/First Aid trained by the American Red Cross. He has diverse experience instructing yoga and meditation to students at churches in Brooklyn, to athletic teams at Army West Point University.

Yoga found Joe after battling cancer. Nervous, lost and confused, yoga was an outlet to restore and rebuild him mentally and physically. He carries the lessons he learned from his first class; being welcomed with no judgment, patience and being comfortable in your own body. Before teaching full-time, Joe worked a high stress and fast paced job for over a decade. The lifestyle put a toll on him mentally and physically. Yoga was a relief to the pace of the city, the stress of deadlines and was a great counter activity for the corporate life.

Alex Tse

Alex Tse

Yoga Instructor

I found yoga years ago when I was looking for ways to refine my body and lose some weight. Yoga found me years later, in 2017 right before a dramatic shift in my life. Little did I know how significant my yoga practice would become. I did not realize how much I was yearning to love myself. My yoga practice developed and held me down during a break-up, yet another apartment hunt in NYC, job transitions, my quarter-life crisis, and it remained as a constant - something to ground me during such an unstable time. Yoga has given me my superpower - self love and respect. Not only do I have a newfound appreciation for my physical body (which is something I never thought possible), but I have a relationship with my “Self” - one that I cherish and plan to keep working on. Namaste.

Forrest Yoga

Created by Ana Forrest 40 years ago to address the demands of a modern lifestyle, Forrest Yoga is a practice designed to free up physical and emotional blocks in the body, with modifications available to every pose to suit all levels of students. The practice emphasizes how to connect to the breath, build strength from what parts of the poses are most accessible, and learn to respond honestly to sensations as a source of insight. We start with deep breathing to open tight spots, follow with reclining core work to deepen awareness, then move to long holds to heat the body and integrate physical strength with the power of the breath.

Yoga Style
