Celeste Gronda

Celeste Gronda eRYT, grew up in a household where yoga was regularly practiced. Her influences were progressive and loving, yet she felt she needed to express herself and find her own path. After several trips abroad to travel, study, and explore the world, she lived in San Francisco, feeling the most at home, on the yoga mat. Immersed in a wide range of vinyasa practices on the west coast she found and related to the philosophical harmony in the alignment based style of Iyengar, and Vinyasa Flow. 2004 brought her to Manhattan where she became certified RYT with Cyndi Lee of Om Yoga. Back to Vinyasa! Her teaching style is playful, warm, and informed, and compassionate. . She weaves a creative blend of yogic philosophy, alignment based principles, and soulful music to each class safely encouraging each student to explore new and exciting aspects of themselves as they relate to this ancient and beautiful practice.
