My family then moved from the farm to the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I got my 200 Hour teacher training certificate, in vinyasa, by attending 20 hours of class per weekend for 10 consecutive weekends. I exited with a huge smile and some spine envy. Apparently, yoga isn't finished with me yet. I love sharing yoga and hope to see you in class.
Carolyn Zimmer began practicing yoga regularly in 2013 when she realized the benefits of yoga went much deeper than the physical body. While overcoming a series of injuries, yoga helped Carolyn to heal physically while also providing emotional and spiritual guidance. In 2018, Carolyn completed her 200 hr- RYT with Meg Horan at Jai Yoga School and is humbled to have the privilege of sharing the incredible practice of yoga with others. Through breath and movement, Carolyn’s classes work to find softness in strength, peace, and self-love to carry off your mat. When she is not practicing yoga, you can find Carolyn working as a speech-language pathologist for children with special needs at a local school or the in a skilled nursing and rehab facility with the geriatric population.
The Diamond is considered the collective whole of a person who shines through all of the various facets. In a Diamond energy healing session Brit clears old trauma and uploads the person to a higher vibration. Typically healing sessions provide a sense of clarity, lightness and well-being which allows for a person to vibrate at and maintain a higher frequency.
In her Yoga classes and individual sessions Brit creates safe and sacred space. Her classes are challenging and strengthening yet fun and joyful. A lovely instructor who shines beautifully from within with humor and delight to offer a sweet and compassionate reflection for her students.
Eryn's classes are fun and creative as she pulls from her years of physical therapy experience. Her goal is to provide a good workout infused with breath and connection allowing you to drop into the moment and flow.
Psychosomatic Journey® is a creative, intuitive process designed to support an individual's capacity to heal their psycho-emotional wounds and decrease the emotional intensity of painful memories. The purpose of this practice is to recover a sense of inner wholeness and peace by befriending and healing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt, neglected, silenced, and betrayed. During Psychosomatic Journey® we create an alternative experience of the painful past event that inspires a sense of resolution, healing, empowerment, and supports the release of heavy emotions.

I don’t have any answers. I’m not perfect. I am still growing everyday. But, I know that I am a love child. I know that I was put here on this earth to remind people how to love, especially myself. I surely know that “I come as one but, I stand as ten thousand.” I know that I come from generations of traumatized women and yet in my healing, I heal the trauma of my line. I also know that my personal journey and the journey of others are interconnected. If all I can do is feel good in my body, I think I will have achieved what I was meant to in this life!
She credits her family and friends as the primary reasons she decided to pursue yoga teacher training. Far too often when she encouraged them to attend yoga classes, she would hear them say things like “I don’t have the body for yoga” or “I’ve never seen anyone that looks like me in a yoga class.” These responses led her to become more observant when attending classes and she noted a lack of diversity in the sizes, shapes and colors of all the wonderful yogis she was flowing next to. She realized the importance of representation and inclusivity in the yoga community and wanted to create safe and welcoming spaces for everyone and everyBODY.
She completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga training through Styles Yoga with Aaron Styles at The Hot Yoga Spot in 2018. She plans on pursuing certification in Prenatal Yoga to combine her love of yoga with her passion for Women’s Health.
