passion for BODY MIND & SPIRIT
Yoga has existed for centuries and is a form of exercise that works the physical and mental aspects of the body, uniting the mind, body and spirit.
The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yoke "union" or "joining together". Rig Veda founded yoga approximately 4,000 years ago and is the oldest written text in the world. Rig Veda means the "knowledge of praise" and is comprised of 1,028 songs. These songs were passed down through oral traditions, such as story telling before the songs were written. Indian scriptures written 3,000 years ago show yoga poses, and Hindu scriptures called the Vedas describe yoga in detail.
SKYE YOGA STUDIO is a Yoga Studio that is owned and operated by Certified Yoga Instructor, Adelaide Torres. The studio is based in Yonkers, NY and has a strong following of students.

ABOUT OUR OWNER/FOUNDER
I have a solid foundation in dance for over ten years and my love for healthy living , and freedom lead me to become a Certified Personal Trainer, Spinning instructor and eventually to incoorporate Yoga.
While taking Yoga classes, I began to discover it's benefits and fell in love with the sense of peace I felt when I listened to my instructor’s calming voice. I wanted to share the sense of serenity I felt during my Yoga classes with others so I enrolled in a 4 week, intensive teacher training program with Lex Gillian at The Yoga Institute. The course was given in a monastery which required long periods of silence as part of the training , ( If you know me you will know that this was quite the challenge ! ).
In 2000 , I became a Certified Hatha Yoga instructor and immediately began teaching and volunteering , in major Fitness Clubs all over New York City including Bally’s, Iowa Sports, The Gramercy Health Club, Elias Howe Middle School , the Fashion Institute of Technology ( F.I.T.) .NYU Downtown Medical Clinic (Classes for Medical Staff) . At the Hebrew Home in Riverdale , I had developed a class especially designed for seniors with dementia , an aquatic program for the seniors that lived there and in the near community .
My presence in the fitness community allowed me to expand again my knowledge that included Pilates. Pilates was perfect to include into my regimen which would compliment all of my years of studying Dance and Movement , I felt that it was another outlet in which I could help my clients transform their bodies quickly , and injury free . I incorporated Pilates moves in most of my classes at fitness clubs , which lead to private sessions , and the development of my private practice .
In 2008 I discovered Zumba! I am a highly energetic , and enthusiastic instructor so Zumba was yet another perfect fit for me to contribute into my love of fitness and dance. After becoming certified, I began leading classes at F . I . T. college , Borough of Manhattan Community College, Bronx Senior Center, Riverdale Community Center, Pelham Ballet Arts Center and Vladeck Hall.
In 2012 I learned of another discipline called Thai Yoga Massage in which the practitioner guides the client through a series of Yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Began my studies with Lotus Palm in Montreal . Thai Yoga Massage was yet another way I could share the benefits and the practice of Yoga. During my studies, my teacher suggested that I consider studying the healing technique of Reiki. And so I did .
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the healing therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki was life changing . I was completely transformed after being initiated in Level I Reiki. I immediately had a sense of ease and an overwhelming sense of healing. I began practicing Reiki three to six hours a day and meditating daily for over a year and a half in solitude . I went on to continue my studies in Reiki and became a Reiki Master and subsequently a Karuna Reiki Master. As a master, one is able to initiate others in the healing art of Reiki. It also enabled me to strenghten and raise the healing vibration . I found that sharing my love of Reiki with others and being able to continue and pass along this gift is a miracle in itself and would be a part of my life always .
I am , enthusiastic, energetic and committed Owner and instructor at SKYE-YOGA STUDIO. I always have , and continue to give my personal attention to my students so that they can evolve in ways they never thought would be possible.I feel I was meant to help and assist you in your mind, your body and spirit. .
