IntenSati is my antidote for depression. Yoga, is my antidote for honesty. From time to time I suffer from deep depression. During my darkest time I somehow stumbled into an IntenSati class. That one class, forever, changed the game for me. I kept on coming back again and again and again. The combination of movement fueled by spoken affirmations showed me that I have power over my thoughts. I can choose my thoughts and that what I choose to focus my attention on has an effect on EVERYTHING. And so I began to choose happiness and through my commitment to the practice of IntenSati I was pulled out of my deep depression.

Then more yoga came along. It started out as a way to get stronger safely and in balance with what I was already doing but soon I began to experience yoga’s other supportive ways. Yoga gave me a safe place to explore myself, to grow and to expand. This exploration gave me more knowledge about myself. This new found knowledge allowed for me to begin to speak and act from a place of truth off the mat. Simply, yoga has made me a more honest person.

Yoga wants you. It’s looking for you to share yourself just as you are and if you’re searching and wish to explore further, yoga will let you do that. I love the technique of yoga, so we start there then I guide you to move beyond the mat to a place that only you know-- a place that goes far beyond any instruction I may be able to offer so you too can find your truth.

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.

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.

Strala Yoga

Strala blends yoga and tai chi principles into a dogma-free yoga practice designed to activate the body’s Relaxation Response by moving gently, slowly and continuously with focus on the breath-body connection. Every inhale opens and creates space, every exhale relaxes and lets you move easily into the space you create. This is yoga that moves far beyond poses, helping you blow past your goals and expands your limits; cracking you wide open. You'll get strong, let stress go, get healthy and happy from the inside out!
