Schuyler Grant has been leading retreats to Costa Rica for 20 years! (A number that she finds incredible and slightly scary.) It all started in 1995 when she produced a yoga video shot in the Osa. She fell so deeply in love with this peninsula that she became a yoga teacher so she could bring her own groups to this magical spot. Seriously. During her millennium New Years retreat, she began discussing the idea of opening a yoga studio…and Kula Yoga Project was born. A few years later some local surfers convinced her that yoga was better on a surfboard and now forget it – the only thing keeping her in NYC is a husband who doesn’t like critters. One of her greatest pleasures in life is introducing yogis to her favorite spot on earth. Schuyler is the director of Kula Yoga Project, NYC and the co-creator of the Wanderlust festival.
Alex Auder, director of Magu Yoga, is a native New Yorker who grew up in the Chelsea Hotel, and recently brought her 20 years of teaching experience to Philadelphia. Known as one of NYC’s preeminent teachers, she has developed a keen eye and a genuinely authentic and original voice. She began her teaching career in 1996 at Jivamukti Yoga Center and at her own studio in Rhinebeck, NY (now Satya Yoga). During her years in Upstate NY she studied closely with her Vedanta teacher, Shubraji, who continues to deeply influence her teaching and practice. And over the last 10 years Alex had been teaching out of her own studio, WestVillageYoga (critics pick in NY Magazine) and as a senior teacher at Kula Yoga Project until she recently moved to Mt Airy. Informed by her study of Iyengar Yoga and Nevine Michaan (among many others!), her vinyasa classes are known for the graceful integration of clear and precise alignment cues, intelligent sequencing, vedantic philosophy, and generous amounts of what have been called “revelatory” hands-on assists. Alex also teaches a monthly “Masters Class” at Kula Yoga in Williamsburg, BK, leads the sections of Kula Yoga’s advanced TT and 200 hour TT called “Relevant Dharma Talk” & “The Art of Adjustments,” is a mentor in the new Wanderlust TT, and co-leads a summer retreat at Kripalu. www.maguyoga.com.
