Looking to the Fall

I'll be teaching this Saturday and next Wednesday and Thursday before we head up to the woods.  I'm eager to soak up nature, swim in the marble quarry, practice at Yoga Vermont, visit Camille and Liza, introduce Uma to the forest.  I'll be back for a garden class on Thursday the 9th of September.  Please let me know if you are interested in specific kinds of classes to address your personal needs. Please also speak up if you are interested in adding an early morning (before work and school...maybe 6 am) Ashtanga class.

Private and Semi-Private Yoga Classes

I am building a private practice and am very happy to come to your home, meet you at the beach or invite you into mine for a deeper more personalized practice.  I love working with couples, friends and families in private and semi-private groups.  Contact me if you are interested for details.
Luisa Giugliano has been involved in the study of yoga all of her life. As a child she attended meditation classes with a particularly esoteric aunt; as a young adult she studied Buddhism and Hinduism which led her to the Yoga Sutras and to a physical asana practice. Yoga has taken her home to her body, and has empowered her to lead a more mindful and subtle life. Luisa has tremendous respect for the power of a personal practice and aims to help her students invest in and develop their personal practice, whatever stage of life or level of experience they bring. A lifelong yoga practice initiates us into a deeper harmony with our bodies, nature and the seasons.

Luisa GiuglianoThe study of asana, pranayama, mantra and ancient texts informs Luisa's teaching. Drawing on classical Ashtanga yoga and Kundalini meditations and kriyas, she offers a rigorous, reflective and deeply restorative class. It is Luisa's hope that her students leave her class glowing, strong and ready to take their practice into their lives.

Over the last decade Luisa has spent time in India, run an antique textile shop in Brooklyn, lived in the woods of Vermont, and taught poetry in the schools, but it is her work as a mother which is her central vocation.

Luisa has studied with Kathy McNames, David Williams, Beryl Bender Birch, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and Hari Kaur.

Luisa lives in Sea Cliff with her family of yoginis. She is passionate about natural foods, sustainability and green living. She is a poet, Quaker, and novice gardener.
