Gina Pulisciano

Instructor , Esthetician,

Reiki Practitioner

Gina began her yoga practice upon moving to NYC in 2005. Her work as an esthetician was strenuous on her body, and yoga brought her physical relief.

Her 13 years of experience as a holistic esthetician informs her approach to her teaching style. Gina has a passion for helping people be their best self and believes yoga is the true definition of the word: the union between mind and body. 

 

In addition to being a yoga instructor and licensed esthetician in both NY and NJ, she is also a certified Reiki practitioner, trained in yoga therapeutics, studies Ayurveda and aromatherapy, and is the founder of Alchemy Holistics, a botanical-based skincare line made for sensitive skin.

Ally Reyes

Instructor 

Ally discovered yoga at 18. At that point in her life, she felt lost. Yoga started to bring her home to herself. It began with a physical practice, but very quickly Ally discovered the deep connection to her body mind and soul again!

 

She completed her 500 hr YTT program in 2021.  Always dreaming of helping people, Ally finally found the path how. She finds deep gratitude and fulfillment in being able to guide people through their yoga practices and in life.

 

She is an Angelic and Usui Reiki practitioner as well. Ally teaches with the intention that her classes will inspire others to expand on their journey just as her yoga practice has done for her.

Joelle Broncov

Instructor, Pilates

Joelle's passion for yoga began 18 years ago while taking a yoga class at a local YMCA. Joelle found that yoga made her feel really good and relieved stress while going through a challenging time in her life. Occasional classes evolved into a daily practice and a love of yoga that inspired her to become a certified instructor, to share her experiences, and help others.

Joelle has 17 years of experience teaching vinyasa yoga, gentle and power flows to children, adults, and seniors. She trained directly under Baron Baptiste, founder of Baptiste Power Yoga. She is also a certified Pilates and Spin instructor.

Briana Schoenleber

Instructor, Reiki Practitioner, Thai Massage

Briana started her yoga journey right here at Alchemy House, where she began as a student turned Karma Yogi, a work exchange we offer here at the studio. She obtained her 200hr RYT in 2022 and is a devoted yogi in every sense of the word.

 

Briana is also a former preschool teacher and a mother of two great kids, Megan and James. Her little ones inspired her kids' yoga classes when they wanted to start practicing with her. In her Kids Yoga, she incorporates music, stories, and play into sequences as well as “ magic carpet meditation” to help teach little ones mindfulness through imagery visualization.

Briana believes starting them young sparks a light within them that they will carry their whole lives.

Corinne Loveland

Instructor

Corinne’s love of yoga spans nearly 20 years. She realized the practice was special from her very first class and shortly thereafter knew she would one day teach yoga so she could share its many benefits with others.

 

Community is important to Corinne, so she is excited to be on the Alchemy House schedule and teach yoga in Atlantic Highlands, where she lives. When she’s not on the mat, she’s likely hard at work as part of Slack’s leadership team, where she infuses mindfulness and the many things she’s learned through yoga into how she leads others. She also loves to hike, bike, stand up paddleboard, travel as much as she can, and cook. In fact, she and her partner are in the process of writing a vegetarian cookbook.

 

Corinne’s classes are challenging, but accessible to all levels. Her sequences tend to focus on heart and hip-opening, dynamic movement, and always draw attention to the breath.
