Ilene Pellecchia, E-RYT, completed her first and second 200-hour yoga teacher trainings in 2011 and 2013 at Be Evolution Hot Yoga, now Zura Montclair. She completed a third Hot Power Vinyasa Teacher Training at Garden State Yoga now Powerflow Yoga in 2013.  She has received certification in Restorative and Therapeutic yoga from Jillian Pransky in 2013 and has taken numerous other trainings in body alignment, yin yoga and yoga philosophy.

As a teacher, Ilene has had a great desire to open the yoga gateway for others so that they can achieve, in their own bodies, what they never thought possible. Students of Ilene’s say she is an authentic teacher who guides the practice completely from her heart. Her classes are supportive and non-judgmental, yet challenging.  Students always feel comfortable and safe to go to their edge, to try something new or to be right where they are in their practice.  Ilene is grateful to all her teachers for their inspiration, most especially to Rev. Jagadisha Petrovic, Jody Domerstad and Erin Barry.
