Mixed Level with Restorative


This class is taught by:

Marilyn O'Toole

Marilyn took her first yoga class in 1971 and a seed was planted. Living in the fast lane at that time took precedence and she was not ready for the yoga pace. The seed germinated and eighteen years later blossomed as she started taking classes at the Freehold Yoga Center. For the twenty five years since Marilyn has been cultivating her practice, receiving her first teacher certification at Sivananda Yoga Retreat Bahamas in 1997, studying Ashtanga with David Swenson, and more. Marilyn was introduced to Anusara yoga at Dancing Foot Yoga. Her classes incorporate breathing and relaxation drawn from Sivananda with the alignment from Anusara.

James Payor

After practicing for over 20 years, James committed to a 200 hour teacher training program in 2013. He chose alignment based Hatha, as he saw this as a way to help both himself and others practically both on and off the mat. Subsequently, he received his advanced 300 hour teacher training with Abhaya Yoga in DUMBO Brooklyn NY. His mixed and long training history has given James the unique perspective of combining different lineages and styles of yoga into his own practice and teachings. James also frequently relies on his real world experiences as a single father and a business leader to draw from. James does his best to give simple and practical messages from the old world teachings that can be applied every day both on the mat and off, no matter the level of the practitioner. Most of all, he looks to help people feel better and live as fully as they can.

A complete Yoga class emphasizing mental and physical attention to different areas of the body each week with a wide variety of poses. Students are guided through the poses at their level by offering many pose options with a mindfulness on alignment and breath. Each class finishes with a sequence of restorative poses to allow for deeper opening and relaxing of the body and mind. Students of all levels welcome.
