With over a decade of personal yoga practice, it is a delight to share what I do. Certified though Jaya Yoga Center’s 200-hour RYT program and a graduate of New York University’s Experimental Theater Wing, I have studied the relationship between movement and soul my entire life.
When not on the yoga mat, I perform with ANIMALS, teach the very young at The Maple Street School in Lefferts Garden, and study aikido at Brooklyn Aikikai in Gowanus. These practices encourage creativity, healthful living, rigorous self-investigation, fierce cooperation, and joy in lifelong learning.

Together, we deconstruct, develop, and reintegrate the asana for each person with emphasis on process, never product. Body and breath are simply starting points, a place to play, create awareness and personal agency; an opening into the ever-expanding system that is Yoga. More info at www.calongeyoga.com
