Patricia Morris, LYH Director & Teacher
Exhale, Land Softly, Inhale. I began practicing yoga in 1989 at Jivamukti Yoga Center in NYC with Sharon Gannon & David Life. I am forever grateful for their loving, stern guidance. Their teaching taught me the discipline required for the practice.
My first training was with Sivananda Yoga lineage. I was then drawn back to the origin of vinyasa which lies in the Ashtanga Yoga practice taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. I am blessed to call Richard Freeman my teacher as his discipline, knowledge and humor has affected my teaching in more ways then I may know. I'm grateful for my teachers; it is with gratitude that I attempt to pass on what I have learned.
Amy has been practicing yoga for almost twenty years. It still continues to surprise & excite her on a daily basis. After ten years as a student, she felt the desire to share her experience with others and got her Yoga Alliance 200-Hour certification. She's been teaching at the LYH for almost eight years now. "I receive great joy helping people touch their toes, hold a balance posture, backbend and stand on their head, but the reason I teach is for those moments when someone, right in front of my eyes, learns something new about themselves and I get to watch as yoga, one cell at a time, offers its little surprise gifts my students never saw coming."
Kristen is the creator and editor of Long Island Yoga Magazine.

Kimberly completed her 200 Hour Training under the loving guidance of Patricia Morris at Little Yoga House. Her goal is to encourage students to find a balance between strength and comfort in their movement, and to practice with a sense of joy, lightness and a little laughter! She is honored and humbled to call Little Yoga House her "home away from home".
Ryan found the practice of yoga five years ago when he attended his first class taught by Patricia Morris. She must have done something right, because after four years of practicing yoga at university in Boston, Ryan came back to the Little Yoga house to complete his 200-hour teacher training. Through practice and under P’s guidance, Ryan has learned that one must always be a student, even when one is the teacher. This thirst to transmit his teachings will keep his students engaged, anatomically informed, and laughing a bit along the way.
Lauren Reek completed her 200 hour teacher training with Patricia Morris in 2014. For Lauren, yoga is a process of getting to know your true self. In her classes you will mindfully and gracefully flow through postures while linking your breath and movement. Offering modifications and variations so that poses become accessible to everyone, her students should feel free to choose their level of intensity. All she asks is that you be kind and patient with yourself, stepping onto your mat with an open mind and heart. Lauren is currently in the process of completing an additional 56 hour course in the primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga with a certificate of assistance.
Lucy began practicing Ashtanga Yoga when she was 14 years old. The physical, spiritual and mental benefits she has received have inspired her to become a teacher. She graduated the 200 Hour Program from at the LYH. Lucy thanks all of her teachers for their guidance and she hopes that her students will leave feeling peaceful, mindful, and present.
Mary completed her 200-hour training under the guidance of Patricia Morris at The Little Yoga House in the spring of 2013. In each class, Mary will guide you through both breath and movement, reminding you to challenge and enjoy yourself. With the familiarity of borrowed teachings and the introduction of personal touches, her goal is to create a class that leaves you feeling rejuvenated and joyful.
John completed his 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certification under the guidance of Patricia Morris at The Little Yoga House. His goal is to graciously transmit the knowledge that was taught to him, and offer students an exciting, challenging, and thoughtful class experience. John wants his students to come to the mat setting an intention, recognizing their accomplishments, making new goals, and leaving feeling good.
