Teacher Training


Patrick Franco (ERYT-500)

Patrick has lived and worked in Hoboken for over 10 years and currently raises his children in town. Patrick’s teaching is drawn from the 5000-year old tradition of yoga and rooted in ancient texts and practices but integrated and applied in a way that is relevant to the unique and modern environment in which we live. He is a 500hr (E-RYT) Experienced Registered Yoga Instructor with the Yoga Alliance.

Patrick has practiced and studied yoga since 2001 and received his E-RYT500 certification from Yogamaya New York in 2011 and his RYT200 certification from Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in 2007. Patrick is also a licensed acupuncturist in the State of New York and has a thriving acupuncture practice in NYC.

Julie Pasqual (RYT-500)

Julie earned her 500 Hour Yoga Teaching Certification from Yogamaya in NYC. Julies’s teachers are the incomparable Stacey Brass and Bryn Chrisman (From Yogamaya) for asana, and the teachers of the staff at The Bhakti Center for philosophy. Her classes are inspired and infused with her love of the practices of bhakti, where the mind is stilled by the opening of the heart, nit-picky alignment, and a love of a good old sweaty practice!!

Anna Greenberg (RYT-500)

Anna combines heat building movement with precise, focused instruction for students to find stability and space in their bodies and minds. She has a passion for standing on her hands and loves to demystify arm balances and inversions by teaching them in a way that feels accessible, safe, and fun. She believes that if yoga is approached with consistency and discipline, along with a good sense of humor and play, the practice can be transformational. Anna earned her 500-hour Teacher Training certification from Yogamaya.

Lindsey Rozmes (Ayurveda Health Counselor)

Lindsey found yoga when she needed it most. She quickly fell in love with yoga’s heart-healing abilities and blissful buzz. This led her to pursue her 200hr certification from Laughing Lotus in NYC in 2012. More recently, she’s completed both her Ayurveda Yoga Specialist and Ayurveda Health Counselor certifications with Dr. Rosy Mann and Kathryn Templeton at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA. Lindsey believes that these ancient practices truly guide you to the brightest parts of yourself.

Kimberleigh Weiss-Lewit (MA, RYT-500, CD/CDT)

Kimberleigh is known for her thoughtful and caring approach to teaching yoga to pregnant women and everyone else. Kim has been teaching yoga for over a decade with her initial 200-hour certification from Lotus Gardens. She completed her 500-hour training with Laughing Lotus in NYC and holds a certification in prenatal yoga from Yoga Haven.

In addition to teaching prenatal yoga to many women in our community, she is honored to attend births as a certified birth doula. Using her experience to inspire others, Kim is a teacher trainer leading courses in trauma-informed yoga, prenatal yoga and birth doula work.
