Community Yoga

This class is taught by:

Alie Klein

Alie earned her Master’s degree in Education specializing in School Counseling and has been a school counselor for the past 16 years. Alie was introduced to yoga by a good friend, 9 years ago, who suggested it would be a great stress reliever and she was hooked from her first class!
Alie earned her first yoga certification with Yoga Rocks! Kids in 2008. As her personal practice and passion for yoga grew, Alie pursued her 200 Hour Adult certification with Yogaworks in NYC. Alie is currently earning her 300 Hour advanced teacher certification through Simplicity Yoga in Kings Park, NY. Alie teaches family yoga at Absolute on a seasonal basis and enjoys subbing throughout the year.
Alie loves to see student’s growing in their practice. She feels that everyone is on their own path on (and off) the mat and it is a privilege to be a part of the student’s journey.

Eva Boccio

Eva is a registered yoga & pilates teacher. She is currently working on certifications for yoga therapy and Thai yoga massage. She has a background in dance and music which have introduced her to the love of yoga. Eva is also in graduate school to become a school counselor and would love to bring yoga into the school system. When Eva is not teaching or interning, she can be found playing with her dogs, being with her friends, or hanging out in nature.

Anne Davidson

Anne took her first yoga class just over 5 years ago and has not stopped practicing since! She received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification through Absolute Yoga's Refined Flow program.  Anne's classes are designed to give each student a personal connection to the practice and a safe space for whatever needs to come their way.  Her classes embody a combination of Anusara and Prana Flow, allowing students to open theirs heart as they flow through a moving meditation focused on breath awareness.  Anne also received her Kids Yoga certification through YogiBeans.  Anne is a full time 3rd grade ESL teacher for the New York City schools who applies the principles of yoga so that her students can share a part of what she love.

Leslie Luft

Leslie is the owner and director of Absolute Yoga and an E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance registered instructor. Prior to opening the studio and becoming a full-time yoga instructor and practitioner, Leslie spent 20 years working as a corporate/securities attorney in New York City and Long Island. When the stress of her career and the commute, together with her full time job as a mom to her two children, became overwhelming, she turned to yoga, which she had dabbled with on and off in college. Enjoying the many benefits that yoga had to offer her, she was inspired to get her teaching certification and bring the gift of yoga to others. Leslie received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification in ISHTA Yoga. Developed by Guru Alan Finger, ISHTA yoga is a modern, dynamic distillation of spiritual traditions which allows you to develop a personal yoga practice that meets your individual needs. Leslie has continued her studies in various styles of yoga, including Anusara™ yoga and is an Anusara™-inspired instructor. She has her 500 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification from the Long Island Yoga School. She brings to her classes the benefits of each of these various styles, combining emphasis on the breath, with precise alignment, in a dynamic Anusara™ inspired sequence, encouraging her students to open not only their bodies and their mind, but also their hearts. She also has a certification in Pre-Natal yoga. Leslie credits her husband with encouraging her to follow her heart on her yogic journey and share her joy with others in the studio. She is thankful to all of her teachers who have inspired her and given her guidance over the years.
