Community Yoga


This class is taught by:

Maria Renna

Maria, of RenZenYoga Jewelry & Accessories, has a BFA from FIT, a Master of Early Education from St. Johns, and is a recent graduate of Absolute Yoga Studio's 200 Hour Refined Flow Yoga Teacher Training. Before becoming a part of Absolute's team, she worked as a graphic artist for over 10 years. Her yoga journey began at Absolute more than 8 years ago. Though she left the graphic design world behind, her creative talents have become useful as Absolute's media guru - maintaining our social media and creating flyers for our offerings.

It's clear Maria has always been happiest when creating and using her hands to craft. She fell in love with making sacred mala jewelry when we hosted a workshop and hopes you will, too!

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.
Our intention is to make yoga available to all who seek it! This class is by donation only. Pay what you like, ALL proceeds will be donated to local charities. Instructors donate their time and will vary weekly.  This is an All Levels class, open to every one regardless of ability or fitness level.  The instructor will modify poses for those with less experience.
