This class is taught by:

Deborah Corsitto

Deborah Corsitto fell deeply in love with the practice of yoga in 2004, following the birth of her third child, and fell deeply in love with teaching yoga in 2009, when enrolled in Om Sweet Om’s 200-hour teacher training program. Since then, Deborah has maintained a consistent, near-daily practice in the Ashtanga yoga tradition while continuing to teach, study and enjoy the benefits of restorative and vinyasa styles of practice.
Deborah is currently pursuing her 500-hour teaching certification with Cora Wen of Yoga Bloom with an emphasis on yoga therapeutics and has recently completed an intensive 40-hour training in the primary series of Ashtanga yoga with yogi master David Swenson.
Deborah offers challenging yet nurturing flow classes, where students are invited to explore perceived limits, both physically and mentally, and safely move past them. Students credit her lighthearted, unpressured approach and gentle encouragement with making her classes fun, empowering and uplifting, steeped in tradition, but sweetened with fun. She is forever grateful to her primary teachers, Lisa Bondy, Gail Grossman and Sara Intonato, and most profoundly thankful for the life, legacy and teachings of her guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

 

Gail Grossman

Gail just can't keep her good fortunes to herself. When she discovered yoga, she immediately knew she had to share it with others. Gail opened Om Sweet Om Yoga in 2004, which has been a dream come true, as she has been able to bring this practice to so many wonderful people, both young and old(er). Her students describe her as very nurturing teacher who can quietly touch every muscle in their physical and emotional body, which leaves them feeling relaxed, grounded and happy. Gail was certified by YogaKids in 2000, and has since become a trainer for YogaKids, teaching other adults how to teach yoga to children. In 2001 she received her certification from BeYoga with Alan Finger. She received her 500 hour certification from YogaBloom with Cora Wen in 2013. She has continued to feed her ever-curious soul by continuing her training with other remarkable teachers, such as Shiva Rea, Brian Kest, Erich Schiffman, Kofi Busia, Leslie Kaminoff and Judith Hanson Lasater. Ultimately, Gail is guided by her inner-teacher, the truest voice she will ever know. Through her yoga, she encourages her students to tap into their own wellspring of truth and peace. In 2014 Gail's first book was published. Restorative Yoga for Life is a book she hopes will help many people that she cannot help in person.  
Though Om Sweet Om is her baby, she is being called to spread her wings a little further. You can visit her personal website at http://www.gailgrossmanyoga.com

Yumi Shin-Sedgwick

In 2011, After a major life transition of from being a Private Equity workaholic from Seoul Korea to stay-home mom in New York, Yumi came to yoga as a means of finding balance. Since Yumi embraced yoga, her practice evolved into more than just personal care, but also a passion and love of sharing the magical power of yoga.
Yumi truly believes that yoga is for everyone, from the raw vegan to the BBQ enthusiast. She admits that she is a carnivorous, wine and cheese lover, you won’t hear much Sanskrit in her class, and she will totally forgive you if you don’t know your asana from your elbow.
Yumi gets excited when she meets brand new yogis in her class and loves being a beginner’s first door step into a yoga wonderland. As a perpetual student of yoga, Yumi is eternally grateful that yoga has been a centering force in her life and to her amazing husband for his support with a deep love.
Yumi is certified to teach Vinyasa style yoga, Kids yoga foundation, Yoga for Children with special needs and Restorative yoga. Yumi teaches alignment-based vinyasa yoga and restorative yoga at Om Sweet Om Yoga, Long Island, NY.
