RYAN WARWICK

Yassah began her practice four years ago and in 2016 obtained her 200-hour RYT certification in Mysore, India where she studied Ashtanga.

JESELENE ANDRADE

Jeselene’s yoga journey began in India while working in villages with women to promote maternal health. The physical practice was introduced to her by her host mother who practiced every morning and invited her to join. During the 4 months in India, her relationship with yoga began to flourish and once she returned to the states the practice took off.

While practicing with Jeselene you can expect to have an open and grounded practice that will allow the mind to become more in tune with the physical body leaving it feeling clear and aware. Through the session, the focus will be placed on maintaining stable energy throughout the flow and keeping a consistent rhythm of breath that will assist with identifying the areas of discomfort in the practice and everyday life.

Jeselene’s sessions pick from various styles of yoga that include Asthanga, Dharma, and Yin. She is a 200hr RYT from Roots Love Yoga School Lead by Marie Belle Perez Rivera and practices Mysore daily with Faith Scimecca and Mariebelle Perez Rivera. She also holds a BA in Community Health & Biology and a Masters in Public Health.

JARRICK BROWNER

Jarrick started practicing because he wanted to find an exercise that could be done at home and remove all the excuses as to why he’s “unable” to get a workout in. His friends saw the fast development and started to peer pressure him into teaching. After months of “No’s” he finally sir-came to the peer pressure and took a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Certified in Power and Dharma. He practices Ashtanga daily and loves Japanese Anime so all of these have a heavy influence on his classes and teaching style. Anime for philosophy, Dharma for lifestyle and and Ashtanga for body therapy. His sessions are playful, lighthearted, accessible yet challenging. Allowing practitioners to reach their edge and find growth. Finding spaces within us that we didn’t know existed and mentally, physically and energetically. His sessions leave room for you to tailor your “practice with others” to your needs in the moment.

 

CLIFFORD CARTEL

Salutations. My name is Clifford Bussie and as a yogi, musician, and educator, I like to infuse music and ambient sounds into quaint, detailed instructions as I guide my students from one beautiful posture to the next in meditative flow practices. Upon college graduation in 2013, I learned that life’s responsibilities had a way of closing in on me. So, my hunch was that Yoga, Spiritualism, and Meditation would be a healthy way to cope. As soon as I began an at home practice, via YouTube, I felt the benefits. My yoga glow became so apparent that my friends asked me to teach them in my spare time. So I did. Eventually, this blossomed into full on teaching when my new yogi friend suggested in 2016 that we start a yoga collective, Transp0.se, to help guide students through an ancient acoustic path called Nada Yoga {the yoga of sound}. In 2017, we added a non-profit leg to our collective when I started a free and gentle beginner’s version of our class, called Transp0.se Lite, at the Anacostia Arts Center {we just celebrated our 2nd birthday!}  Shortly thereafter, our co-teacher Erin suggested I take the Yoga district Teacher Training in Winter ‘18-19 so I could acquire and gift a more thorough knowledge of yoga, and I am ecstatic I took that advice. Now, I am prepared to confidently serve as a bridge between yoga and those that need it most. My musical preferences are Hip-Hop, RnB and Folk music {quite a combo huh?} and I generally like to have my room warmed to about 75 degrees for my classes.
