Teachers

Kerry Porter

I am interested in how the techniques of Yoga practice illuminate our patterns of thought, breath, and posture. I emphasize the importance of cultivating sensory awareness, functional movement, and clear thinking about practice. Yoga is a path toward integration.

I have done most of my studies via mentors. I describe Antonin Nenov pretty well in my blog because I was working privately with him for several years in Tampa, right up until I opened the studio. It was intense and disciplined training... an approach I would describe as 'energetic' with an emphasis on understanding Yoga Sutras. As I began teaching more and more to individuals in private and semi-private formats, which happened largely as a result Tony's influence, it became apparent that I needed to study the work of yoga therapists. I am now mentoring with Jaime Ortega, who teaches out of NYC.

Antonin Nenov

Antonin Nenov, 500 R.Y.T., grew up in Eastern Europe having a deep interest in spiritual teachings. In 1990 Antonin moved to New York where he was able to practice various styles of yoga for the next 10 years. He went on to further his studies in India with A.G.Mohan and Indra Mohan. Antonin teaches a unique blend of yoga techniques adapted for the individual needs. Antonin believes that yoga is a process leading to personal integration in all aspects of life. 

Jaime Ortega

Jaime Ortega is a movement based artist, therapist and educator. He has explored a variety of approaches to movement for the last 40 years. His main influences have been the study of Ideokinesis with Nancy Topf and Andre Bernard; and the practice of yoga in the Viniyoga tradition.

I began working with Jaime in 2015 after meeting him online in a yoga forum. He lives and works out of NYC. We work regularly online together as student and teacher. And I have had many live sessions with him at various training sessions. Jaime directs my personal practice and also teaches me in depth lessons on the various aspects of practice as it is taught in this tradition.
