Yin Yoga is a very slow, grounded practice that targets the connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. While slow, this class can often be intense and is not recommended for beginners.

Tom Keren

Tom came to yoga a few years ago after suffering panic attacks due to high anxiety and derealization. He searched for a way to become grounded, mindful and have a sense of safety in his own body. Yoga was the recommended tool. He met with a certified trauma-informed teacher at Beloved Yoga who provided him with the tools of feeling safe in his own body again and, due to this, he earned his own trauma-informed certification. Through breath work, body movement, and self-affirmations, Tom found solace and comfort in his being.

Additionally, due to the number of physical injuries he has, Tom never thought he would be able to do yoga at all. What he found was a world open to everyone. Yes, yoga is for everyone. "Yoga meets you where you are at!" "Yoga is for everybody!" Tom was inspired by this loving, caring and all-inclusive philosophy to share this with others. In 2019, he entered the 200-hour yoga teacher training at Beloved Yoga.

Tom feels that it is important to look across the room at your students with care, and make sure everyone feels safe and welcome during the practice. Tom believes yoga is not about judgments, comparisons, or competition. Yoga is about your personal expression on the mat. Yoga gives the practitioner the space to truly be themselves without fear. Tom has also completed his 500HR teacher training and subsequent certification at Beloved Yoga and currently teaches Hatha, and Yin Yoga. 

Emily Steiner

Emily began practicing yoga in 2001 at Integral Yoga Institute in Manhattan under the teachings of Swami Satchidananda. Immediately she felt more connected, peaceful and resilient and continued to practice many different types of yoga in many settings. Wanting to deepen her understanding of the process that was happening both on and off the mat as a result of yoga, she enrolled in teacher training. Emily is an RYT-500 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Instructor and a C-IAYT Yoga Therapist. 

Yoga continues to help Emily see life with clarity and enables her to remain an observer in the midst of a hectic life. Yoga helps her let go and let the change come, to bend and not break. 

Emily is inspired and humbled every time she teaches yoga. She loves to see the courage it takes to be on the mat and fully present, and the compassion it takes to be exactly where you are and how you are. Emily’s classes cultivate self-awareness by encouraging her students to step into the powerful position of the observer, which allows us to remain calm and neutral, acting rather than reacting in our life. Emily’s intention as a teacher is to inspire and guide students in a compassionate and nurturing environment in hopes of spreading more light in the world. 

Emily believes yoga is the path to greater self-awareness and healing. She is honored to share yoga and its benefits with others. She also loves hiking, having bonfires, knitting, reading, and finding the sacred in the mundane.
