Class Descriptions

BEGINNER LEVEL    

These classes are focused on the anatomy and physiology using basic alignment details with the help of props and modifications. Students will gain strength and flexibility through conditioning and repetition. Meditation, breathing techniques and basic yogic philosophy and history will also be included. Prenatal students welcome.

MIXED LEVEL

These classes are for students who have at least a beginning understanding of yoga asana. They recognize the basic poses and know how to make the poses suit their own level. The focus of the class is on learning new poses and refining the understanding of familiar poses. Yogic breathing techniques and meditation and general yogic theory will be included in every class. Students will gain a deeper understanding of how yoga works outside the studio. Prenatal students with a strong practice welcome.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED

Students attending these classes will have a strong understanding of yoga asana as well as no injury or limitation that they do not know how to modify on their own. Poses will be more intense and sequences more vigorous. All facets of yoga philosophy will be included in these classes. Please do not attend this class if you are new to yoga and new to the studio.

THERAPEUTIC/CHAIR YOGA

Using techniques from Yoga, you can safely and effectively strengthen your core muscles and gain flexibility. This class is designed for people with limited mobility due to pregnancy, age, injury, illness and for those moving out of a more sedentary lifestyle. With the use of chairs, walls and props you will be able to move your body in a safe and effective manner without fear of falling or injury or inability. People with injuries and/or mild chronic pain from wear and tear are encouraged to use this class to help heal themselves.

TEACHERS

Zaidee Bliss

Owner, Align Again Yoga

Owner, Align Again Yoga

Zaidee started teaching back when she was 16 at her local ice skating rink. From then on, teaching became a way for her to learn more about what she loves. Later, while working as a mediation and conflict resolution teacher in New York City public middle schools, she went to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition followed by her first teacher training for yoga at Kripalu. Zaidee taught at a few studios in New York City for a while before she moved to New Hope, PA and began her study of alignment based Hatha Yoga. 

Currently, Zaidee is living in Easton, NY and teaching out of her dream studio in Greenwich, NY.  She studies continuously with different teachers and practices meditation with Paul Muller Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga.  

Zaidee’s classes are deeply influenced by her fascination with physics, the human body and the desire to find a sense of peace and real joy in every moment of life.  Her classes are well rounded and designed to suit the needs and levels of her students.  She pays special attention to correct alignment in order to more safely enhance her students’ practice while allowing them to align again with themselves.  Each class is unique and can have themes that relate to daily life or themes that are just kind of kooky and fun.  Meditation and the way we live are important parts of the yoga practice and emphasis is put on this practice in varying ways.  Zaidee wants everyone to love yoga as much as she does and is ready and able to help you integrate yoga and the lifestyle of yoga into your life.


George Green

Instructor, Align Again Yoga

Instructor, Align Again Yoga

After retiring from a career in natural resource aviation, George wanted to find activities that challenge both the body and the mind.  Fortunately he found yoga and was able to develop an asana practice with some excellent teachers in various traditions while exploring his lifelong interest in philosophy and spirituality. George decided the best way to combine his love of the asana class experience and his desire to go deeper into breath techniques and meditation would be to take a teacher training.

He explored various schools of yogic thought and eventually found that Hatha yoga brought to him a sense of curiosity about our human condition as well as contentment with the process.  In the fall of 2011, he started a year long teacher training at Detox Yoga in Saratoga with Mark Kinder and on completion started teaching there, as well as at Align Again yoga in Greenwich.

George says, “I try to bring to my classes the skills helpful in reaching the serenity I experience when I practice, the maintenance of safety through alignment assists, and a curiosity in wondering about the connection of body mind and spirit”


Adam Michelini

Instructor, Align Again Yoga

Instructor, Align Again Yoga

Adam started practicing yoga over 10 years ago.  After his first class, he became aware that he had not used some of his muscles mindfully for years and that yoga would greatly benefit him.  In 2009, he began to practice and study alignment based yoga.  With the aid of dedicated and knowledgeable teachers, these yogic practices brought about a profound change in his health, self-awareness, and functioning.  With the aim of maximizing these benefits in his own life and sharing them with others, he began the journey to become a yoga teacher.  His classes offer a supportive, compassionate environment with a practice focused on balancing effort and relaxation. He also seeks to bring awareness to the powerful contribution a yoga practice can offer to the process of self-directed change in anyone’s life.

 Haley Graves      

After living in NYC for three years, Haley re-located back to Greenwich to pursue her passion for health and wellness. Haley began practicing yoga in 2010 and has since completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in New York City under the guidance of Syama and Dhyana Masla. In her teaching, she hopes to inspire others to mindfully utilize and care for their bodies. Having grown up in Greenwich, Haley is very excited to be back in such a wonderful community. Haley can always be found experimenting in the kitchen or working on “Yoga and Toast”, a yoga, travel and food blog created by her and her boyfriend, Mike. Haley looks forward to sharing her practice with friends both old and new and is grateful for the opportunity Align Again has provided her. 

Haley’s classes are a mix of vinyasa and hatha yoga. Practice will often begin with a guided meditation followed by gentle movement to warm-up the body. Building an energetic flow we will focus on utilizing our breath, creating space to go deeper into poses. Haley’s classes allow her students to challenge them selves, while offering modifications for those who are new to their yoga practice.
