Saturday 28th September

11:45-12:45 PM




This 1 hour workshop is perfect for the essential oils curious folks, as well as those who have familiarity with the oils already, and are hoping to begin to use the oils in their self care rituals + meditation practices.

Cass Ghiorse:

When her dance career was sidelined by a knee injury, Cass spent the next 10 years dedicated to practicing, studying and teaching therapeutic and alignment-based Hatha yoga.

Now, 15 years into her work as a teacher, Cass comes to the asana practice from a more functional movement approach rather than from any one lineage of Yoga. She believes in working with the breath to find ways that the pose or sequence can work for you rather than you needing to change your body to fit the pose. Her classes are known for their clear alignment instruction and emphasis on core strength as a path to a stronger connection to yourself.

Forever a student and proud nerd, most recent studies of note include a year-long training with Leslie Kaminoff, author of Yoga Anatomy, and Elevate Mentorship with Elena Brower, her long-time teacher. Cass is a founding teacher at Hastings Yoga (where she still instructs); has been on staff at Equinox since 2008; and teaches corporate and private classes throughout Westchester.

Karma Workshop: Unlock the Power of the Present to create your future!


K A R M A 




3:00-5:00 PM




Once we unlock the power of the present, we will begin to understand the karmic power we have to change our destiny.

 In our 2 hours together, we will dive into the first three karmic principles so that we might better understand our past decisions,  as well as connect to the importance of making the right choice in the present moment.

Through discussion + asana practice, we will explore how these principles work for us individually as well as part of the broader collective.

You will leave with a clear understanding of this often misunderstood yogic concept +

feeling empowered to the truth that you have all you need in this moment to create the tomorrow of your dreams!




Allison Waguespack, RYT fell in love with Yoga while living in San Francisco in 2000. After five years of sampling all the classes SF had to offer, Allison completed her comprehensive teacher training and certification in San Francisco with renowned Ashtanga Teacher (and personal instructor for the Grateful Dead), Larry Shultz in 2005. Since that time she has attended trainings and workshops with David Swenson, Shiva Rea, Rodney Yee, Sarah Powers and Jason Crandell.
Her journey began with her enjoyment of all the physical benefits that Yoga had to offer but as she became a teacher and more intimately explored Yogic philosophy, the principles of living Yoga off the mat gave her an even deeper connection to the practice.  She hopes to inspire others to live in their Yoga practice both on and off the mat. The Journey is the Joy after all.

Allison resides in Irvington NY with her husband and two children. In addition to teaching classes throughout Westchester, she also created and teaches a Yoga for Actors curriculum in the Conservatory program at Michael Howard Studios, The Professional Acting Studio for Theatre, Film and Television in Manhattan and writes a blog based on her teaching at

Unlock Your Hips: Yoga for Hip Mobility + Strength

Unlock Your Hips: Hip Mobility & Strength for Runners, Hikers, Cyclists (ANYONE WHO MOVES)

with Susie Caramanica




The workshop is two hours in length is open to all levels of runners, hikers, walkers, bikers and all yoga practitioners.
We will not only strengthen and stretch the muscles of the hips, but we will work to regulate the breath and calm the mind.

Hips are complicated – too much tightness or weakness in various areas of the hips can lead to back pain, instability or other problems. Yoga can be an effective way to prevent injury as you learn to listen to your body. While shifting through the poses, you will meet your physical boundaries which can help you recognize when to push yourself and when to pull back. Yoga can challenge you to recognize strengths and weakness, and helps counteract the impacts of active repetitive physical exercise such as running, hiking and more.

All level students are welcome. No yoga experience necessary.

After competing as an Division 1 runner in college for cross-country and distance races on the track, she kept up a running practice and continues to dabble in half marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks and sprint triathlons along with hiking and biking.

She focuses asana on proper alignment while incorporating awareness and body mind connection, bringing a sense of calm, release and joy into each class.

Yoga For A Healthy Spine

 Yoga for a Healthy Spine
with Jen Krakowsky
healthy and strong spine is essential to full-body health as well as emotional well-being.  Yoga can be a wonderful and effective way to bring awareness, strength and flexibility to the spine.
In this 90 minute workshop, we will briefly discuss the basic anatomy of the spine, common back problems plaguing so many in our modern culture, and how and why a simple yoga practice can help both alleviate common problems and prevent future ones.
Using precise alignment cues as well as the support of various props, we will complete a well-rounded practice that you can take home to continue on your journey to maintaining a healthy spine.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioners; students should be able to get up and down from the floor without difficulty.
Saturday October 5th
12:30-2:00 pm



Jen’s yoga journey began many years before setting foot on a yoga mat. At the age of 14, she went through major spine surgery to halt the progression of scoliosis. Many years later, suffering from chronic back pain as well as stress and anxiety, Jen felt drawn to yoga. She immediately fell in love with yoga’s physical and mental benefits and came to realize that yoga offered her a path to understanding her fused spine as well as her underlying scoliosis.

Jen practices in both the vinyasa and Iyengar styles of yoga. Borrowing from her Iyengar practice, Jen teaches with a strong focus on healthy alignment, body mechanics and breath. She approaches her students with the belief that each body is unique and carries with it its own history, limitations, strengths and weaknesses.

Jen, RYT-200, received her teaching certification at Yoga Haven under the direction of Betsy Kase. She regularly takes Iyengar classes with Jill Ganassi and attends workshops in NYC whenever possible. Jen has studied with Elise Browning Miller, Alison West and Deborah Wolk. She is grateful to share her passion and knowledge with others.

Meditation and Breathing Class, open for all

wwwhohnyyogacom_f1f9589dTuesday sessions are open to all.

Feeling stressed?
Can’t catch your breath?
Can’t sleep?

Throughout the day, when we experience stress, our bodies automatically react in ways that prepare us to fight or run. In some cases of extreme danger, this physical response is helpful. However, a prolonged state of such agitation can cause physical damage to every part of the body and can lead to serious medical problems. Join Hastings Yoga in this series where we learn how meditation corrects much of the damage caused by stress, helping the body to repair itself, restoring the body to a calm state, and preventing new damage due to the physical effects of stress. Yoga and meditation instructor Joy Solomon will also describe and demonstrate focused breathing techniques that enhance the mind’s ability to stay present and to be fully engaged.

Registration is available here

Class dates are Tuesdays, 8:15-9:00PM.

$20/drop in

Seating is limited, registration is suggested, but not required. Both chair and bolster seating will be available.
