Like many other people, Tiffany came to the yoga mat initially seeking a good workout. Those “workouts” evolved into a passion for studying the yoga path that has transformed her life. The desire to progress from student to teacher was sparked in Boston when Tiffany joined Back Bay Yoga Studio in 2010. There she began regularly taking classes with Ame Wren and found a deeper connection to her practice than ever before. Tiffany completed her 200 hour teacher training with Kate Greer and Lynne Begier in 2011. She has been continuously inspired by all of the amazing teachers she’s been able to study with at Back Bay Yoga from all over the country and feels blessed to be able to share her experience with others through her teaching. Tiffany’s Vinyasa training was infused with many styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Forrest, Yin, Anusara, Iyengar, and Kundalini and you will see a little of all of these influences in her classes. She opened O Yoga Studio in 2011 to create a space where others can have the opportunity to discover all of the wonderful things yoga teaches you about your body, your mind & your life.

A graduate of Jamesville DeWitt High School and William Smith College, Sophie began a dedicated yoga practice as a repose from her stressful management position in Boston, MA. Practicing at studios throughout Boston, Sophie was exposed to several different yoga styles and many amazing teachers. Yoga helped Sophie get better balance in her life, and when a downsizing occurred at work, Sophie completed her 200 hour teacher training in Boston at Charlestown Yoga. The training was a conduit for change; after 13 years in Boston, Sophie returned to Central New York in 2011. Sophie is most drawn to Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, focusing on intelligent sequencing and anatomy. She is influenced by her teacher Judy Foster, Jean-Bernard Lazaro, Johanna Hynes, and Helena Zera. Prepare to smile while you sweat, and laugh while you balance, all while listening to great music. You will leave class relaxed and renewed. Sophie is thrilled to be back in Central New York, rooting for the Orangemen, spending time with family and great friends, and joining the O Yoga Community!
MaryCate came to yoga during her college years at Brandeis University, where she began practicing the Ashtanga Primary Series with a small group of friends. After a few months, the opportunity to participate in a work-study exchange at YogaPower Studio in Waltham, MA, came up and MaryCate dove in head first, working and practicing at YogaPower for the next several years. Following the completion of her degree (M.A. Anthropology and Gender Studies), MaryCate returned to her home town of Syracuse, NY, overjoyed to join the O Yoga community, first as a student, then as an admin, and now as a teacher, having completed her 200 hour Foundational Training with the Open Hearts Yoga School in Cambridge, MA. For MaryCate, yoga is about creating inclusive communities that radiate with joyful energy and embrace the interconnectedness of all things. The integration of body, mind, and soul informs MaryCate's personal practice and study; influenced by the Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power, and other lineages of yoga, her teaching is syncretic, sweaty, and infused with love. Humbled by the wisdom of her many teachers, supported by the refuge of the breath, and inspired by the inherent perfection of things-as-they-are, MaryCate is honored to share yoga with everyone. Satnam!

Through this experience, she developed a true passion and respect for the art of yoga. It wasn't long before this passion for practice lead to a desire to teach.

Catalina has also studied Tai Chi, Capoiera, Karate and Reiki, important influences in her yoga practice and teaching. According to Catalina, "Alignment is important but Yoga is a practice to free yourself in the world-to be happier and more aware. To be connected to your true self and to others. The practice of yoga is about becoming a better, brighter, less afraid version of you. That is the spirit of Yoga that I want to bring to the mat." Catalina's class is inspired on smart, energetic and vigorous flows intended to release tension and to free the mind with the ultimate goal of healing and self-trust.
