Ilene Gagliardi, MA, RYT – 200, CFNC, is a certified yoga teacher, registered National Yoga Alliance member and certified functional nutrition counselor. She began her fitness career in 1987 as an ACE-certified group fitness instructor, and in 2006 began to complement her physical training with her own personal yoga practice. Her love for yoga grew and she eventually transitioned from the fitness arena to the mind/body side of yoga.
In 2008 she received her 200-hour training at Stone Center for Yoga and Health, and has taught regularly at Stone Yoga, The Glenpointe Spa, Bamboomoves (Palisades Park), and the Richard Rodda Center in Teaneck. She has grown to appreciate the balance yoga brings to life by focusing on the connection of mindful breathing while improving flexibility and strength.
