Founder, Lead Instructor

Nelly Perumean

Nelly’s love for yoga started under the teaching of her 76 year old instructor who inspired her to live a healthier, more fulfilling life. As yoga began to integrate into many parts of her life, she became certified to teach in 2010 and hasn’t stopped. Her teaching focuses on a love-based approach, connecting with students to guide them to their full potential. Whether a gentle, advanced class, or anything in between, many variations are offered for students to find their edge. With 17+ years in corporate Learning and Development, her passion for disseminating knowledge spread from the corporate world to yoga studio. Nelly has consulted with various studios to design and develop Yoga Teacher Training programs for 200-hour and 300-hour certifications as well as facilitate these programs. Nelly holds a BS in Accounting, MA in Adult Education and Training, and ERYT-500 Yoga Alliance certification.
