ngone_2Hello.

My name is Ngone (pronounced “Gonay”) Mbaye. I am a New York City-based yoga instructor.

My yoga journey started 6 years ago while working as a French language and dance teacher for a prestigious Manhattan-based preschool. Once each week, a yoga instructor taught the children yoga movements. I was inspired by the way the instructor guided the children with games, music, and books while teaching various yoga poses and stretches. A short while later I received my children’s yoga certifications from Little Flower Yoga, Urban Yoga Foundation and Rainbow Kids Yoga.

In 2015, I completed my 200-hour yoga certification at Three Sisters Yoga in New York City. November 2016, I wanted to deepen my yoga knowledge and practice, I completed a 300-hour yoga certification with Three Sisters Yoga. July 2017, I completed a 300-Hour Hatha teacher training in Rishikesh, India.

I enjoy teaching yoga to children and adults. I guide all of my students through fun, intelligent, effective, yoga classes. I focus on teaching relaxation, correct posture, and mindfulness.

My classes are gentle and accessible to everyone. You are encouraged to go at your own pace whether you are a beginner or experienced. My yoga teaching method closely resembles Vinyasa with elements of the Hatha yoga style.

Yoga offers a chance to relax, strengthen and stretch. Through yogic breathing, Asanas and relaxation techniques you will enhance your well-being both on the mat and in your everyday life.

Namaste!
