June 2018 schedule

Azzuré took her first yoga class as a form of grief therapy. With little patience and no prior yoga experience she came to love the physical transformative properties of the practice, as well as the spiritual connection.


She received her 200 hour RYSA vinyasa certification from Yoga to the People as well as an additional 100 hour Hot Yoga certification to teach the Bikram postures. Over the past six years she has steadily built into her practice a strong self discipline, mental stamina, and a deeper focus on the body-breathe connection.


Azzuré believes the most important aspect to any practice is to show up on your mat, and focus on the work your body can do today.

Madeleine was born, raised, and trained in Australia. She found Pilates during her full-time dance training in Perth and fell in love with it as a way to cross-train. She found that she felt stronger and healthier combining the benefits of dance and Pilates. When she injured both knees, she came to rely on Pilates for rehabilitation. It was then she decided to be trained as an instructor so she could help others to become the strongest and healthiest versions of themselves. She was trained in Sydney in the STOTT Pilates method and is now a certified Mat and Reformer instructor.

Madeleine moved to the United States this year to continue to pursue her passion of dance, Pilates, and helping others to create healthy minds and bodies.

I teach from my personal practice which includes all 8 limbs outlined in the Patanjali Sutras infused with Buddhist mindfulness techniques. My formal training is in Power Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, but I also use cues and techniques from the Iyengar, Dharma Mittra, Kripalu and Bikram schools. My intention is to give you something useful — something that not only changes your physical practice on the mat, but changes the way you experience your existence. We are all doing our best to make our way in this world.

"Like a procession you walk together towards your god-self. You are the way and the wayfarers. And when one of you falls down he falls for those behind him, a caution against the stumbling stone. And he falls for those ahead of him, who though faster and surer of foot, yet removed not the stumbling stone." —Kahlil Gibran

I was born and raised in Brooklyn and fitness has always been a part of my life. Whether it was football or softball I always kept my feet moving. My favorite activity while growing up was swimming and in high school I joined the swimming team.

My passion is to help others achieve their fitness goals while still having fun doing it. As instructor I love to push and motivate our members but never by yelling at them. One of my favorite quotes is "decide, commit, succeed."

Nathan has been practicing yoga for over a decade. Originally from Portland, Oregon, he grew up exploring the outdoors, backpacking, mountaineering, skiing and rock climbing. The intense internal focus of those pursuits infuse his practice and his teaching today.

Nathan's classes are fun, active, challenging and informative. His teaching style explores both the body and the mind and emphasizes physicality, alignment, and concentration.

Georgios Pillas grew up and started his training in Paphos, Cyprus. He started training in various folk and Latin dances at the age of 10 and continued his training there for 7 years. At the age of 17 he relocated to The Netherlands in order to train with Fontys Dance Academy and expand his knowledge in other forms of dance as well as continue his latin training. While studying at the academy, he traveled to Barcelona, Paris, and Brussels participating in various dance work shops and shows of all different forms of dance.

Georgios relocated in New York City to continue his dance training and became Hustle Dance Champion in 2015.

My family’s genetic history has a long line of heart disease and diabetes. At a young age I understood the importance of a healthy active lifestyle. After years of training in fitness I decided to get my certifications to pass along my knowledge in health and fitness to those wanting to adopt a lifestyle of physical and mental well being.

Exercise is vital in establishing a strong foundation for the overall fitness and well being of all people. This is the main reason for my enthusiasm and eagerness to motivate others to live physically active lifestyles.

My name is Edwin Rivera and I am a fitness professional. I received a bachelor’s degree in physical education at Long Island University in 2007, and was immediately hired as a physical education teacher for the New York City Department of Education. For the past eight years I have been working with youth; motivating them and encouraging them to develop healthy lifestyles so as to prevent diseases that may develop as a result of being sedentary. I love it.

In March 2014, I decided to try working with adults at Green Fitness Studio and became certified as an Insanity instructor. I had no idea that working with adults would be as much fun as working with young people!

After becoming a member of the Green Fitness Studio staff, I’ve come to a realization that I really enjoy motivating people of all ages to improve their health and be as fit as possible.

My name is Juan, I'm a Boxer and instructor training out of Brooklyn, New York. I have eight years of experience in the boxing world. I'm a 2X Golden Glove Champion (open division) and Medalled in national tourneys. I train men and women of all ages looking to get in shape or learn self defense.

Ryan Schollenberger

Ryan is originally from Harrisburg, PA and currently resides in Brooklyn. He comes from an active family— his father is a spin and Pilates instructor and his mother and sister are both ballet dancers. He has been involved in sports for most of his life, having played basketball, soccer, and baseball competitively through high school.

After graduating, Ryan developed a passion for weight training and worked as a student athletic trainer at Muhlenberg College. He also stayed active, participating in intramural soccer, basketball, football, and softball. Over the next five years he trained numerous students and athletes including members of the Muhlenberg baseball, basketball, and track teams.

His background is in bodybuilding and training for speed and power, which won him an internship with Velocity Sports Performance, who specializes in Nike “Sparq” training for young athletes. Ryan’s training style and classes reflect his background—explosive and efficient movements with an emphasis on speed and power. His favorite strength coaches, from whom he draws new information, are Paul Chek, Eric Cressey, Christian Thibaudeau, and Charles Poliquin. You won’t often find him on the cardio machines—he prefers to get his heart rate up with kettle bells or a jump rope. He also stresses the importance of a proper warm-up, which involves both dynamic movements and static stretching.

After years of a personal yoga practice that had fluctuated, I decided to immerse myself within my practice six years ago during a period of uncertainty. Since then, I have completely integrated the practice into my daily life and have been humbled by the challenges it has set before me. I am amazed at how I can continue to learn new complexities in each asana as well as in myself as my practice deepens. As an instructor, I am a firm believer in making the practice of yoga accessible to everyone, to prove that anyone can do yoga. My classes are focused upon my students. By paying attention to the small idiosyncrasies of those practicing around me, I build a series of asanas that focus on alignment and play to their strengths, while pushing them to new places they didn’t think possible - all while having fun. By holding space for those who want to turn introspective and encouraging others to connect with the energy around them, I invite people to explore the depths of their own practice, in whichever means comforts them.
