Edel Keane

 

FOUNDER AND INSTRUCTOR

Edel’s mission is not only to nourish the body, but the mind and spirit.

As a mom of three and former investment banker on Wall Street, Edel is familiar with the complexities and expectations that come with this lifestyle. Edel integrates these learnings in her teaching and provides a safe place for people to let go and just BE.

Edel’s program builds strength, flexibility and balance through stability. She believes in creating a space to discover the truth in transition and a sense of lightness that many seek in their practice. Edel believes that a large part of yoga is going behind the illusions we create and examining our internal conversations to simply find gratitude and love for ourselves. She designs classes with purpose and offers a gift to students of every level.

With a mind full of curiosity for the non-tangible realms in life, Edel is continuously studying, learning, exploring and sharing her findings in her teaching and with those she encounters in the world around her.

YOGA
At a very early age, I developed a passion for any kind of body movement. After taking my first Hot Power Vinyasa class with Baron Baptiste in Boston, I was hooked. The physicality of yoga practice attracted me, but the transformative nature of the practice is what keeps me dedicated, and ultimately what drove me to become a teacher. My vinyasa class is challenging, thoughtful, and filled with opportunities to explore arm balances and inversions - all of which are designed to give students the ability and courage to take their practice to the next level.

YOGA & MEDITATION
A former fashion designer, I found healing in yoga as a new mother struggling with a health crisis. After completing my (RYT-200) with Saraswati’s Yoga Joint, I lived in Argentina and Switzerland where I taught classes to an international community. Returning home, I continued my studies, completing trainings with Leslie Kaminoff, Elena Brower and Jillian Pransky. I share my love for yoga with classes that are breath centered with attention to alignment that follows the organic architecture of each individual body. I offer instruction that is nourishing, generous and joyful, inspired by philosophy and poetry. My yoga mat has followed me around the world, a reminder that yoga brings us home no matter where we are living or what we are living through.

BARRE
As a Holistic Wellness Coach, the mind-body connection is something I encourage clients to develop and nurture throughout their lives as part. Becoming a barre instructor has gifted me with new ways to inspire people to truly take care of themselves. My classes engage people to challenge their bodies to be longer, leaner and stronger while enjoying an atmosphere that's supportive, rewarding and fun! I'm grateful to be a part of Jarosa and to share my barre practice with you.

YOGA
I teach a rhythmic and sometimes vigorous Vinyasa Flow style class that emphasizes the importance of fluid movement linked closely to pranayama (breath awareness). Creative sequencing and intelligent alignment encourages physical stability, increases flexibility, and enhances the body’s natural detoxification process. I emphasize a technical approach to postures, affirming your commitment to practice and offering a mindful approach to living that is evident both on and off the mat.

YOGA
I have been studying yoga, dance and many forms of movement all my life. With a degree in Psychology, I have a strong background in the ways that all sorts of movement affect our psyche and can be a source for deep healing. I aim to create the space in my classes for your own exploration; cultivating comfort in your own body, discovering the many ways your body can move freely and easily, and using the practice on the mat to help us relate to and be present in our lives.

BARRE
My passion for Barre and how it strengthened my body led me to taking the step to becoming an instructor in order to share this practice with others. Drawing inspiration from past instructors, I aspire to make every class unique, motivational and fun - building longer, leaner, stronger bodies in the process.

YOGA
In 2015 with my children grown and out of the house, I found myself in an ashram in Rishikesh, enrolling in a month long study of Kriya yoga and meditation. My teacher was a monk, Sadhvi Abha Saraswatiji. She has this quiet grace and elegance about her that made me fall in love with the art of being still in the midst of chaos. My classes are steeped in tradition. They include pranayama, asana and meditation, with a mix of eclectic music. I teach alignment based yoga and I enjoy the creative use of props. You will leave my classes feeling centered and grateful you made time for yourself to practice.

YOGA
When I first stepped onto a mat and realized what life changing principles and connections yoga has to offer I was hooked. After spending many years practicing different styles of yoga (Bikram, Vinyasa, Dharma Mittra and Jiva Mukti), I began my journey as a teacher in 2013. I combine a challenging Vinyasa flow with attention to breath, alignment and yogic philosophy, all while encouraging my students to practice their yoga off their mats and into their everyday lives.
