Heidi Ruehlmann

   I have practiced and studied Hatha Yoga since 1969. In 2002 I received my teaching certification in Prana Yoga at the New York Open Center lead by Dr. Jeff Migdow and Priti Robin.
  Prana Yoga focuses on the chakra system and teaches ways to consciously release energy blockages in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body, creating balance and ease on all levels of being. In Prana Yoga we combine the practice of asana with chanting the seed sounds and vowel sounds of the chakra with the intention to increase, decrease, move, and balance the energies in the major energy centers (chakra) in our bodies. 
  My teaching style is also greatly influenced by my early teachers Ani Nadler Grosser and Rachel Gluckstein.
  I have a great desire to share Yoga with those who experience restrictions in their physical bodies due to age, excess weight, or injuries. I want to show that with the help of gentle movement, attention to the breath, and an open heart, we can change the way we feel about our bodies, how we relate to ourselves and others, and to the world around us.

 Al Sayegh 
(Anand Dev Singh)

 Al Sayegh began his yogic path in 2000 by discovering his spiritual journey thru Kundalini Yoga. In 2013 he was blessed in completing his Kundalini Teacher certification under the guidelines of KRI
He is grateful for learning under the guidance of these beautiful teachers, Guru Dharam, Siri Sat Kaur & Mahan Rishi. Besides his thirst for yoga he has utilized his photographic prowess, for over 30 years, to shoot over 150 of the world's top musicians and celebrities. His work has appeared in numerous publications including ShowBusiness, People and USA Today, on CD covers, websites and in other medium. The spiritual name given to Al is Anand Dev Singh, which means, the Lion who is blessed within his divine self- the bliss of being one with God. Al has now felt the calling to bring Kundalini Yoga to the mountaintop and to share with all who seek a beautiful fine-tuning of our minds, body & soul.
Nicole Sansone

  I fell in love with Yoga after my very first class with Heidi Ruehlmann somewhere around 1998 and am blessed to be working with her all these years later at the Mountain Breeze Yoga studio.
I received my teaching certification in 2008 from The Hard & The Soft Yoga Institute with Beryl Bender Birch. 

  My classes are alignment based, fun artistic expressions that combine various styles and techniques of yoga woven together with the transformative power of the breath. Students are encouraged to move from where they are, go inward throughout the practice, and fully explore with gratitude all that is.  

  As a teacher one can have many hours of instruction on the teaching and learning of yoga, but the best experience comes from spending time on your mat, exploring the mantra of breath, and moving your body with the intention of deep listening. I am inspired by the limitless places one can go.
Jeanne Licurse

 Jeanne Licurse came to yoga through her love of natural healing and holistic education. As a Montessori teacher she recognized and valued the intelligent conversation, the nurturing environment and the remarkable sense of well being that yoga provides. With her love of dance and movement Jeanne’s physical practice became poetry in motion and in 2009 she completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher’s training under Mitchel and Tracy Bleier at SYJ in Norwalk CT and recently completed the Yoga in Schools Teacher Training at Kripalu in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. 

 Jeanne engages her students in a rich, energetic practice with warmth, enthusiasm and humor while offering adjustments and gentle modifications. 

 Jeanne’s philanthropic heart inspired her to start a non-profit company, Abeille Consultant’s Inc. which is dedicated to teaching yoga, natural gourmet culinary classes and the creative arts to people of all ages and athletic abilities. She is presently studying in a yoga mentorship program with Tracy Bleier at Yogapata in Wilton, CT.
