Evelyn Abruzzo, Ed.D, E-RYT 500, discovered yoga after leaving educational administration in Long Island and relocating to NYC. The yoga bug took hold from the very first ISHTA class. She continued her studies through the 200-Hour TT, intending only to deepen her own practice. That intention turned into a passion. Her goal is to help others find a sense of peace, balance and joy in their lives. With this goal in mind she designs her classes with a dose of inspiration along with a strong emphasis on alignment and breath. Evelyn is a senior teacher at ISHTA, an E RYT-500, with additional training in Yin, Restorative, and Yoga Nidra; she is the yoga blogger for NewYorkCityBoomers.com. Evelyn has a Doctorate in Education from Hofstra University.
