Class Descriptions and Instructors

Sunday 7-8:30pm

Hatha yoga class taught by David Thurn. The emphasis of this class is on precision and alignment to deepen your experience of your poses and practice; each class also includes some standing/flowing work. Movements are more deliberate and thoughtful in this class than others. This class is open to those with previous yoga experience.

David Thurn began his study of yoga with T.K.V. Desikachar in 1976 and began teaching in 2002. Inspired by the principles of B.K.S Iyengar, he has had the honor to study for many years with senior teachers in the Iyengar tradition, including Kevin Gardiner, Mary Dunn, Carrie Owerko, Lara Warren, Matt Dreyfus, Tori Milner, and Dean & Rebecca Lerner. David's teaching emphasizes precise alignment and a playful, deep exploration of the asanas (yoga poses) as a means of developing stability, flexibility, and balance in body and mind. When these things come together, we touch the heart of yoga in an experience of equanimity and peace.

David is also a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst with a private practice in NY and NJ. As both a yoga teacher and a clinician, his goal is to help people to identify problems, to understand their sources, and to develop the freedom to make changes that will lead to a more creative, satisfying engagement with life.

David also teaches on Friday evenings (5:30-7:00) at Sand Hills Wellness Center. See thurnyoga.blogspot.com for more information.

Saturday, 9:30-11:00am

Vinyasa class taught by Maria De Noda. Maria likes to combine the principles of proper alignment of Iyengar yoga with the flow and freedom of Vinyasa yoga. Her classes focus on moving with the breath in flowing sequences that will often challenge you. Open to all levels of experience. Modifications offered.

Maria De Noda began her practice of yoga during college in the early 1990s, first with an interest in the philosophy of yoga, and later with the physical practice. In 2009 she completed her teacher training at Simply Yoga in Kingston and is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT. Maria believes that you can never stop learning, and is constantly taking classes and attending workshops to better her understanding and her own practice. These have included workshops with Seane Corn, Cindi Lee, Bobbi Goldin, Bobby Clennell, Dean Lerner, Rebecca Lerner, Matt Dreyfus and Judith Hanson Lasater. She loves sharing what she has learned, and continues to learn, with her students and hopes that they will gain as many benefits from yoga as she has.
