School Yoga Institute (Yoga)
Ira started to practice yoga consciously in 2007. He says consciously because, after getting his 200-hour certification, he realized there were many parts of yoga besides the physical practice. These other paths of yoga (pranayama, meditation, and positive thought), he had already been practicing from the time he was a little boy. This inward feeling of something larger than himself was always present through his years as an entrepreneur, teacher, consultant, and individual being.
Valerie is a certified bodywork and energy therapist for two decades. She is also Dr. Sears certified health coach and previous owner of lifestyle center personal training studio in Soho, New York City. Valerie Leeds developed a wellness and food program called H. E.
