Larisa has been teaching since 1997. While she has trained with many well respected instructors in both Yoga and Pilates, she teaches her own style in both. She is a PMA Certified Pilates teacher and uses the classical style as a foundation for her training which incorporates a large body of non-traditional material. Her Yoga certification is a 250 hour training with the Nyack New Age Center. Be Light Yoga always challenges physically and tempers the ego, so that friendship and respect may be established between head and body. Dig deeper.
