Satya learned yoga at an early age from his parents in Mysore, India. Living in the USA, Satya reconnected with yoga in 2001 when he got tired of the gym routine and discovered Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. In 2009, as a complement to the dynamic Ashtanga yoga, he started Heartfulness meditation practice.
Satya started the Clinton Heartfulness meditation meetup to share this simple but effective spiritual practice in the local area and he teaches Heartfulness meditation at the Hunterdon Art Museum. He is now excited to have the opportunity to share his passion for Ashtanga vinyasa yoga.

After years of athletics and going the traditional gym route with weight lifting and cardio until exhaustion, Ron started exploring other ways to remain healthy. His wife convinced him to attend a weekend class at OM Yoga Clinton back in 2014. The Yoga community and atmosphere at the HAM was so welcoming. He immediately felt like this was a perfect fit from day one. He quickly realized that yoga was a more therapeutic way to stretch, strengthen and tone the body. In the years that followed, he deepened his practice by studying traditional Hatha yoga under the guidance of Gist Finley at the Ahimsa School of Yoga. This has truly transformed his life in so many ways, both physically and mentally. Ron loves to share his knowledge of yoga with students by creating a safe, friendly, and encouraging environment. His goal is to break down poses so students gain a deeper understanding and benefit of each pose. Students are encouraged to make deep personal connections as they become the observers both in class and in daily living.
As a certified elementary educator, Liz has been in the education field for over twenty years. She is currently teaching art classes to 4-6 year olds at the Hunterdon Art Museum. While she has been exploring of yoga over the past 20 years it became an integral part of her daily life in 2014 when she attended the first outdoor yoga class of Gist Finley at the Red Mill. Liz later did her training in Sivananda yoga at the Ahimsa School in Clinton. Liz has found that yoga is not just a physical activity but truly a way of living all aspects of life and enjoys sharing all she has learned and is still learning with her students.
Amber discovered the importance of Yoga around 1999 as a means to figure out the mind-body connection for mental and physical health. At the time, finding yoga classes was limited so it was often replaced with Pilates while keeping spiritual work separate. In 2017, Amber completed her 200-hour training with Complete Health Yoga. She has since gone on to study Yin Yoga, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Yoga for Depression & Anxiety, and Aerial Yoga through Honor Yoga. Her classes introduce students to a variety of props including chairs so that people may learn ways to make their practices as accessible as possible. She also has meditations on the Insight Timer app. Her Instagram is @seekingdharmayoga and website seekingdharmayoga.com.
