RACHEL PORAT

Yoga

My journey with yoga started while I was going through a very challenging time in my life,after moving to a new country and leaving behind everything and everyone I knew and loved. Without having a support system like my family and friends, I was starting to feel lonely and drained. I remember attending my first yoga class, feeling for the first time in a very long time so calm and relaxed, and at the same time so energized and revived! I'm honored to be able to spread this amazing gift to others.

MARJEAN ADDISON-JASSO

Nia™

I fell in love with the NIA™ Technique during the first class I attended, and immediately knew I needed to teach and share with others. I have been passionately teaching since 2008, and sharing the "joy of movement."  I hold NIA™ Technique White and Blue Belt Certifications. As with any relationship, I am still growing with  NIA™  physically and spiritually, and learning more about myself and movement.
