“Over the years Devotion has had a mission of bringing the most experienced teachers to our community for classes, workshops and related events. We usually offer a variety of workshops that are focused on yoga, wellness, or personal development in addition to our weekly schedule of 45+ yoga classes,” says Liza Bertini, founder and studio director at Devotion Yoga. “Our experienced staff does host frequent workshops at the studio but we also invite guest teachers from outside of our community to come share their expertise with our students. Rodney and Colleen are very well-known and sought after instructors, so when they said that they would like to come to Devotion Yoga, we were thrilled!”
Rodney Yee has been instrumental in introducing to the United States. His appearance on Oprah in 1999, his vast output of videos with Gaiam, and his eloquent workshops around the world helped catapult Yoga into the mainstream. Colleen Saidman Yee is one of the most revered and recognizable faces in the world of yoga—featured in Vanity Fair, O: The Oprah Magazine, New York magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Allure, Marie-Claire, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar Italia, and has been on the cover of Yoga Journal four times.
The class was open to all skill levels. “Rodney and Colleen are highly skilled teachers who will make the experience match any practitioner’s level of practice by offering modifications and variations of postures,” says Bertini.
For 13 years, Devotion Yoga has cultivated a large number of passionate “devotees” here in the Hoboken area.
“Devotion is rooted in the heart of Hoboken, surrounded by historical architecture and New York City views, it’s truly an urban sanctuary. Our space is absolutely beautiful and unique, offering in a perfect place for people to unwind and relax,” says Bertini. “In addition, we offer wellness services, including massage with therapist who are truly healers. But most of all, our dedicated and enthusiastic community is what makes Devotion so special. Together we have celebrated, supported and learned from each other. We practice, heal, mentor and train through our dedicated and experienced teachers. This is part of what makes our studio so special.”
