Since Janell was a little girl, she had found the art of dance to be a significant part of her life. Dance has not only been a great area of performance, but for Janell it has been her outlet, a form of expression; a place she can go to be free and connect to her inner self. At the young age of 16, she was blessed to begin her passion for teaching as she taught dance classes for the next 5 years at Broadway Dance Theatre. After several years in college studies and focusing on her career, she felt a sense of loss and disconnection. That’s when she discovered yoga. She spent the next couple of years delving into her own personal practice. It was through her personal yoga practice that she regained inner connection and fulfillment within herself and knew this was something she wanted to share with the world. The doors opened for her in the summer of 2014 when her new found passion for movement brought her to The Center for Health and Healing in Toms River, NJ where she graduated with her 200-hr Registered Yoga Teacher certificaton. Janell is continually inspired by the transformative power of movement – both internally and externally – whether it be dance or yoga. She believes the mind, body, soul connection is essential to finding balance, love and self-awareness. She teaches her classes with a strong and compassionate environment for students to enhance body awareness, deepen their practice and enjoy the benefits yoga has to offer.
Allie is fascinated by the body's ability to heal itself through movement. An avid endurance triathlete and runner, Allie discovered yoga at age 13 as a means to curb nagging injuries. The more subtle (yet also more powerful) elements of mindfulness and presence proved themselves shortly thereafter, leaving her hooked. Her love for teaching and sharing the practice led her to 200H teacher training in 2014 at Namaspa, a Baptiste affiliate studio in Bend, OR. In January 2014, she also completed a training with Chelsea Roff of Eat, Breathe, Thrive — an organization which employs yoga in the treatment of body image and eating disorders.
A west-coast native, Allie recently moved from Portland, Oregon to pursue her PhD in medical anthropology at Princeton. She especially enjoys working with students and believes a yoga practice brings essential balance to the stresses of academia. She hopes to teach a yoga that empowers and enlivens while creating space to play and celebrate the body.

While she had always enjoyed the physical benefits of yoga as a compliment to her vigorous exercise schedule, in 2010 Kelly became more intensely drawn to the practice for the spiritual and mental benefits. She began her journey to a certified yoga instructor at Princeton Center for Yoga and Health under the guidance of Cheryl Delaney. In 2013, Kelly became a lululemon ambassador.
Kelly believes that yoga keeps her balanced both inside and out and enjoys sharing her passion with her
students. Her classes are challenging and playful, encouraging students to balance strength and softness in their practice.
Before embarking on my own self discovery, and the self inquiry process that led to my personal transformation, I was one of those "bring it on" types. I was boxing my way through life, no matter what. And to make sure that I got the proper training, I went to the gym daily, sometimes twice a day and took boxing classes, pumped iron, and ran 40 miles per week while my mind also sprinted through my long to do list. There was no time to waste!
Yoga was the vehicle that I climbed into, it 'drove me' to transform my chaotic life, into a more happy, effortless, abundant, and successful one.
I became SERIOUS about transformation, growth, and healing. We all should be! I realized we cannot afford not to be, in today's world! In my classes, be prepared to sweat while transforming your wounds into love, power, forgiveness, and gratitude.
Accordingly, I created my customized blend of spirituality and strategy, not only in litigation, but in life. And since then, in addition to litigating employment law and immigration law cases, I have become a 500 hour Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor, acquired an E-RYT 500 hour certification from Yoga Alliance, obtained an advanced Certificate from Kula Yoga NYC, completed David Regelin's 75 hour Katonah Yoga style Teacher's Intensive, and became an New York University (NYU) trained Executive and Personal Coach.
I am a mother to three sons, a wife, & first-time grandmother.
I have massive love and gratitude for Baron Baptiste, who has handed me to MY SELF, and helped me figure out what I want to contribute to the communities I belong to. Thank you to Schuyler Grant, and all the teachers at Kula Yoga, NYC, who contribute daily to my wellness and growth. I have deep gratitude for the innovative and inimitable David Regelin, who introduced me to Katonah Yoga, and in fact, saved my life. And last, but not least, every single student who ever attended my classes, retreats, and workshops, and every single teacher I ever practiced with, has added immeasurably to my love of yoga and motivated me to do what I do.

Natalie L. Senese, MS, AT
Independent Team Beachbody Coach
PiYo Instructor Certified
Natalie has always been passionate about health, fitness and sports! She was an All American collegiate lightweight rower at Mercyhurst University, and post college turned her energies to long distance running. She completed multiple half and full marathons, including qualifying and completing the Boston Marathon twice. Over time, and the rigors of training, her body began to break down. It was at this point, Natalie discovered the benefits of using her own body weight to build strength and flexibility! She went through her own transformation using PiYo (a fitness program inspired by Pilates and Yoga moves), and then began to appreciate the practice of Yoga, and what it can do for the body and mind.
We are excited to announce Natalie will be leading PiYo Strength classes at Rise Power Yoga. This is a unique fitness class influenced by Yoga and Pilates inspired moves that fit perfectly together to form a class filled with choreographed movements to music. The class is fun and challenging and will help improve your strength, balance, flexibility, cardio, core and power.
