Mary Ann Fernandez - OWNER/OPERATOR/IN-HOUSE ARTIST
Mary Ann had been working as a professional artist in the New York Metro Area for over 20 years when she found Yoga. She has painted walls, portraits and designed restaurants. The scope of work is large! Her love for the yoga practice, her passion for art and her respect for her exceptional neighbors prompted her to open a space to congregate, create and grow. Serving as the ring leader and resident artist, Mary Ann envisioned this studio to become home to it's local artists, actors, musicians, gypsies, yogis, moms, dads (kids in the Spring/Summer) and all those who want overall wellness physically and creatively. Join us for an inner and outer body workout!! Gypsy Yogis is more than a place people come to practice yoga, it is a place where people come to heal.
We have so many amazing teachers, collaborators and associates that it is impossible to single any out. Here is a brief bio on a few and keep your eyes posted for information on others monthly...
Belly Dance Instructor
Joe came to yoga in 2009 to stay sane (and fit) as an actor in the big city. His practice has enriched the years since inspiring him to spend time in India, make more art, and engage in community outreach. Joe received his RYT200 teacher certification from OM Factory in NYC where his inspirational teachers included Arthur and Constanza Roldan (Ashtanga) and Holly Coles (Vinyasa).
With the help of a vibrant volunteer base, Joe founded ASJ Wellness in 2012 which offered affordable Yoga classes in Union City, NJ until 2014 and set the stage for Gypsy Yogis. Much love to Mary Ann for creating this fantastic new home for the blossoming Union City/Weehawken yoga community.
