The Oceanic Yogi Studio is offering private yoga classes are each one hour on Sunday, June 5th, at 44 West Chestnut Ave, Merchantville, NJ. During this class, the instructor will help you set your fitness, balance, and flexibility goals. The instructor will also give you a take-home plan so that you can continue your practice outside of the studio at your own pace. We bend so we don't break! Sign up for sessions through Eventbrite. The Oceanic Yogi Studio was created by Dianna Cortorreal, a bilingual yoga teacher and photographer based in South Jersey. Dianna credits her Yoga practice as her saving grace after struggling with depression and anxiety for many years. Today, she continues to share the benefits of yoga with her students online, in-studio, and outdoors. Dianna's fascination with capturing imagery began after her return to the U. S. from the Dominican Republic as a way of preserving memories. She offers group and private classes in-person as well as online. The instructor has mats and blocks available to borrow. We also enjoy outdoor yoga sessions during the warmer months at a nearby park in Camden Waterfront. If you have any questions or concerns, we’d love to hear from you! Namaste.
