Bhakti Barn Yoga, a studio dedicated to Vinyasa Yoga celebrates its 1st Birthday in downtown Millburn. The owners, Betsy Davis and Christine Gatti, have created an environment that they hope will inspire their students to celebrate life, health and happiness. The studio practices Vinyasa style yoga. Vinyasa yoga is a playful, vigorous, flowing and creative style of movement that links the breath to the poses, creating a bridge to our inner radiance!
Davis and Gatti chose Millburn for their studio’s home when they discovered that the town did not offer a yoga establishment. They designed the studio with a certain vision. They filled the space with vibrant color and gold leaf lotus flower borders which evoke the idea of silk sari fabrics from India. There is a practice room in lagoon blue that features sequin-bordered curtains and hard wood floors. The inviting reception area greets students with fresh flowers and products directly from India, where the owners recently traveled.
Betsy Davis, the principle instructor, has been teaching yoga for 10 years. She uses creative and playful movement which she believes acts as a bridge to a deeper union with one’s self. She completed her yoga teacher training with Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi of Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York City.
“Yoga is meant to be an individual exploration along a path to peace, freedom and joy,” comments Davis. “My goal is to assist my students through the whole experience with movement, music and color so that they may successfully travel that path.”
Bhakti Barn Yoga offers individual and group classes, as well as corporate retreats and children’s yoga. Along with Vinyasa the studio also offers Kundalini and Restorative yoga classes. The studio’s class offerings can be found on its website www.bhaktibarn.com
