In 2012, Helene moved out of New York City to a quiet town on the east end of Long Island. There, she cultivated a love for teaching at her local studio, Yoga Shanti, in Sag Harbor. She has trained for more than 500 hours and continues to study with the studio’s founders, Colleen Saidman-Yee and Rodney Yee. She considers herself a forever student, and finds inspiration in other teachers, styles of yoga, and traditions that enrich her way of looking at the world.

Helene’s classes are a creative blend of intention, alignment, and flow within which students are guided through purposeful sequencing set to an eclectic playlist. She hopes her students connect more clearly with the strong, compassionate, and peaceful parts of themselves through practice.

Helene’s most influential teachers are Colleen Saidman-Yee and Rodney Yee, and credits them for their constant source of wisdom and support. The poet Mary Oliver brings her back to her most profound teacher, nature itself. When she reads one of Mary Oliver’s poems she feels the greatness of the world in all its small and tender moments. She is reminded that we too are part of nature and can experience and exist as part of the tapestry of a larger world each day. 

Questions. Answers.

What makes a house a home?

The love you put into it.

Favorite Montauk Hang Out Spot

For coffee and treats, essentially what I live for, Marram. Thanks to the lovely team at Santa Teresita who I met in Jose Ignacio, this place feels like a second home and a lovely little secret. Oops, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything.

What about teaching yoga inspires you?

What inspires me about teaching yoga is my students, seeing them come back to class, ready to practice and willing to do the work. When people show up for class ready to listen, open to the teachings, taking on a challenge, that inspires me as a teacher.

Go-To Grounding Yoga Pose?

If I don’t have any props, constructive rest is my go-to. Otherwise, downward facing dog with my forehead on blocks, followed by child’s pose.
