  lisa benner, subtle body/sadhana  e-ryt 500  An actor, mover and dedicated breather, the moment I was introduced to yoga, I knew it was for me.  I came to yoga shortly after I discovered pilates, and found I was able to use both to correct and/or improve different physical issues, including chronic headaches.  For a long while I practiced both, but as I experienced the personal transformations it brought, yoga won my heart. I graduated from Sonic Yoga’s 200 hour Teacher Training program, Hathavidya’s 500 hour training, and Bread & Yoga’s prenatal program.  I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance as E-RYT 500 and Pre-Natal. I teach at various locations around NYC and am the studio manager for Sonic Yoga. I am also an assistant director for Hathavidya and co-teach teacher  trainings at the 200 and 500 hour level ( www.hathavidya.com  ).  I teach from the Hatha philosophy in the Vinyasa style, creating each class on a theme, and incorporating pranayama, mantra and meditation.  Strong attention is given to alignment. I am greatly honored to be able to share the transformations that yoga brings, to teach and to continue to learn.  Many thanks to my precious teachers, including Will Duprey, Susan Duprey, Johanna Bell, Lauren Hanna and Jonathan Fields.

  Ayman Mukerji Househam  RYT200  TSY 200 Hour Alum 2017   Ayman Mukerji Househam is on a mission to create a mindful world by demystifying its biological benefits.  Ayman is a former Wall Street executive. A long time meditator and yogi, Ayman now teaches mindfulness to families, corporations and individuals.  She is also a researcher of mindfulness physiology (or as the academics call it - “psychoneuroimmunology”!) Her recent scientific publications unravel how mindfulness practice changes our immune system, gut and even our genes! This is the topic of Ayman’s TED talk. She wants the world to hear the science behind the buzzword. Ayman hopes to propagate mindfulness and eventually create a peace movement.     A clinical social worker in-training, Ayman combines Eastern meditation with Western therapeutic techniques. She is an active speaker on the topic. Ayman is an author of a book on the neural findings in autism spectrum disorder. She works with children diagnosed with autism and ADHD. You can find her teaching mindfulness to parents and children at the Rubin Museum of Art, and the Tibet House.  Fun Fact: Ayman’s hobby is to draw sketches and she has two pet snails. She is also a mom of two little boys – her little gurus.  What Others Say: “…Not only can she lead a group meditation of over 90 people in a theater, she has the scientific research to prove its effectiveness”
