Mixed Level with Restorative


This class is taught by:

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.

Marga Cava

Marga Cava, PhD, E-RYT 200, started practicing yoga in high school, and it quickly became an integral part of her life. While studying Romance languages and living abroad, she studied with Iyengar masters and Buddhist and Tantric philosophers. After returning to the U.S., Marga began studying Anusara yoga with John Friend, Emily Huresky, Regina Grassia, and others. Her gurus and their method inspired her to begin teaching in 1999. More recently, Marga completed Wisdom Warrior Teacher Training with Desirée Rumbaugh and Karen Church. Marga bows in gratitude to all her teachers (family and friends) that have guided her on her journey.
As a Registered Yoga Alliance and Anusara-inspired teacher, Marga strives to facilitate a deeper understanding of bio-mechanical alignment and help her students tap into their inner wisdom and true light. Now, as co-founder of Align Amar Yoga, yoga instructor and high school teacher, she hopes to enrich her community by offering the practice of yoga, meditation, and mindful living.

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.
