ZACH MOSES, RYT 200
Growing up, I was surrounded by yoga: my mother a yoga teacher and my father and sister, practitioners.
It was my own health struggles that led me down this path.
Whether I'm navigating the streets of New York or a whittled path in the forest, hot yoga taught me to draw strength and happiness from myself rather than my circumstances.
A good teacher sees herself in her students and uses that perspective to cultivate compassion, understanding, and commitment. I am dedicated to helping change lives – my own included - in the hot yoga room, and I am honored to be part of the Riverflow community of Hot Yoga Teachers. In fact I love it so much, I travel from my home in Brooklyn to teach here. Outside the yoga room, I am a writer, cyclist, hiker, urban explorer, music-lover and adventure-traveler.
AMY ACCARDO, RYT 200
After many years exploring a variety of yoga practices I tried hot yoga, and immediately found my fit.
I fell in love with the challenge of the 90 minute open-eye meditation and quickly became addicted to the healing benefits. I was able to make a direct connection between my hot yoga practice and healing of a running knee injury, and then, more balanced hormones – I have been hooked ever since. Now I feel honored to share the benefits of yoga with students at Riverflow. I have found that teaching yoga gives me the gift of maintaining balance in my own life.
When I'm not doing hot yoga I love to stay active. I trail run and train with the Bucks Tri Club. Professionally I am also an instructor at TCNJ and Rowan University, completing my doctorate degree. I am thrilled Riverflow enables me to merge my love of teaching and yoga.
LAURA BATTEN RYT 500
I’ve always been healthy and active but living the “no pain, no gain” mentality left me barely able to walk let alone enjoy my life.
During my recovery, I discovered hot yoga at Riverflow and haven’t turned back. I was amazed by the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional benefits that left me wanting moreafter each 90-minute, sweat-dripping class. I wanted to give back to others - corporate life was not so fulfilling. I joined Riverflow Hot Yoga Warrior Teacher Training and it was life-changing.
I am so blessed to give the gift of hot yoga to others and to be a part of the wonderful yoga community at Riverflow. I love that I can share my yoga wisdom and strength on this never-ending journey with my beautiful daughter as she grows up.
“Relax and move with the flow of the universe.” That’s what brought me to Riverflow Yoga.
Moving has been central to my life. The last few years I settled in Lambertville. Like many, I make Riverflow my second home. Whether I’m a student or a teacher that specific day, I always look forward to time in the hot, hot room. Who knows where the universe will take me next, but close to the center is always hot yoga. I hope it centers you as well.
ALEXANDRIA SAVASTANO, RYT-200
Once upon a time, I wanted to be a kale-eating nomadic world traveler, backbending my way through the Garden State's rest stops.
My journey out of state and back brought me to the warm welcoming atmosphere of Riverflow Yoga for some much needed healing. There, I pursued my dream of being a yoga teacher and living the technicolor life I always imagined.
Yoga has given me many gifts and teaching yoga gives me so much more than I could have ever have pictured. Outside my impressive life as a yoga teacher, you can find me in the nearest supermarket with an armfull of Sponge Bob stickers, blabbing stories to a five-year-old about the man who lives under the cash register. I love my bull dog, vegetables, and the smell of fresh paper. (Alex is a passionate poet, currently pursuing certification in Chair Yoga to bring yoga to seniors.)
I stumbled upon hot yoga while recovering from mercury poisoning several years ago, to sweat my way out of chelation therapy.
MALLORY AIMEE MAIER
For 30+ years, running was the only exercise that seemed to provide a much needed physical and emotional outlet. That is until I entered the rooms of Riverflow.
Both practice and teacher training have been transformative-physically, mentally, and spiritually. I love that the practice of Hot Yoga is such a metaphor for life. Standing still between the poses prepares me for stillness and quiet in a busy world so that I can be present to the messages that come my way. When I stop struggling in poses or correct and go deeper, I am reminded to “let go” of my struggles outside of the room. When I lock and lift muscles and limbs, I internalize my strength and value. Staying in the room and breathing renews my faith and hope. I carry lessons from the studio with me throughout my day and welcome the opportunity to share these as a teacher.
