Jenny Schulder Brant is an Certified Ayurveda Health Counselor, Yoga teacher and artist. She studied Ayurveda at Kripalu and is certified through the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA). She a certified yoga teacher (YT200) with Briala Silva. Her focus is on teaching food as medicine and on helping to build a community in which health and quality of life are valued most; one where we understand that the health of our own bodies and minds directly connect to the health of our communities and the world.
Roberta Strickler is a Certified Ayurveda Health Counselor and has been teaching yoga, yoga as therapy, mindfulness meditation, and Ayurveda, in central Pennsylvania since 1995. She earned her first certificate as a yoga teacher from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA, followed by 12 years studying Anusara Yoga (a Iyengar-based style of yoga known for its elegant language and therapeutic principles of alignment).
She sees the goal of yoga to be the relaxation of the body so the mind can be stilled for the practice of meditation. Key to aging, throughout the past ten years, her study has been focused on Yoga As Therapy ( with Doug Keller) and the practices of Ayurveda, an Eastern system of medicine that focuses on causes of dis-ease more so than clusters of symptoms.
Roberta studied Mindfulness Meditation with Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1998 and for 6 years worked on a team to present Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at then-St Joseph Hospital in Lancaster. In that setting she also created and taught yoga for Breast Cancer Survivors, then broadened it to yoga and mindfulness for survivors of other cancers and cardiac events.
Her studies of Ayurveda (Yoga and Meditation are primary tools of Ayurveda) were inspired by the fine teachers at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA. She is certified as an Ayurveda Health Counselor by the Kripalu Center.
Ayurveda is a sister science to yoga. Wherein the goal of yoga is spiritual – to quiet the mind for meditation – Ayurveda is the science of health. Much like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda teaches a lifestyle that finds balance with nature and the self.
This approach to the integration of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda into issues of balance, physical rehabilitation, and well being, have dominated her private teaching throughout the past ten years.
