at somawell

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. It became popular in the West in the 20th century. The word, yoga, comes from the Sanskrit yuj, which means “to yoke” and "samadhi" or "concentration." Thus, yoga is the practice that aims to join the mind, body and spirit. The ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve liberation. 

 

At SomaWell we believe that yoga is for everyone, and that there are many paths to liberation. Please explore our diverse collection of yoga styles, and find the one that is right for you.

Basic Flow

The inherent characteristics of this expression, such as smooth rhythmical breath, spinal waves, relaxation-in-action, and economy of movement, result in a seamless flow ~ the unification of pranayama and mudra with dynamic and sustained asana to create greater flow of prana. TriYoga sequences have been systematized from Basics to Level 7 into a comprehensive method. Ultimately, TriYoga is merging with the inner flow, universal energy.

 

Basics

For those new to TriYoga and for those who want to strengthen their core alignments, Basics is the necessary foundation for all classes. It is also complete practice in itself. Bolsters, pillows and other props can be used in all levels to ensure comfort and alignment.

Evening Flow and Restore

Set by candlelight, we begin each class with breath work or mini-meditation to release any stagnant energy from the day. It is then followed by a vinyasa style flow with mindfulness and awareness of breath. The class finishes with a restorative pose or long savasana for a deep relaxation. This class will prepare you for a goodnight's rest and you will feel refreshed for the coming week.

When she moved to Long Island with her family and left her career in the fashion business she earned her 200hr. TT at Absolute Yoga in Woodbury. She continued on to learn the practice of Ashtanga Yoga for a number of years and began teaching in the Huntington and Montauk communities.

Kristen Monge

Kristen Monge began practicing yoga in 1998 as a way to connect her love of movement with meditation. She completed a 200+ hour vinyasa flow teacher certification in San Diego in 2006. Her path has led her to study and practice several other styles of yoga including Iyengar, anusara, and ashtanga. Kristen began teaching on Long Island in 2009 while raising 3 kids and now sees yoga as a lifestyle.
