New yoga teacher RYT 200 and local entrepreneur, who opened Solntse Hot Yoga studio in Wading River because she fell in love with yoga several years ago and wanted to show that love to people in the community, which lacked a local studio. In the studios, besides usually scheduled classes, Ina offers free monthly meditation sessions and other workshops to help educate the community on how beneficial practicing yoga is to ones' physical and emotional health. By opening the studio Ina was hoping to help a lot of people to overcome health issues and live better and healthier lives by integrating yoga into their everyday routines. Two years later Ina has expanded her business to Downtown Riverhead to better accommodate customers traveling from the east of the North and South Forks.
As a beginner yogi herself, Ina focuses her classes on sharing important knowledge about all the limbs of yoga rather than just the physical Asana practice, including pranayama and mudra exercises. Her classes are very well balanced and designed to work on all of the areas of the physical and emotional body.
