Richie Parrella is a certified yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner trained in Prana yoga, based in the lineages of Kundalini and Tantra yoga. He leads classes with the intention to create a safe space for others to explore their inner experience and create transformation, as well as reduce stress, anxiety, and support overall wellness. His classes are rich in yogic philosophy, breath work also known as pranayama, and mindfulness.


Based on his many years studying psychology, nutrition, and exercise science, as well as his years trained in Muay thai Kickboxing and Brazillian Jiu-jitsu, he has come to learn that the body, mind and spirit are all intrinsically connected, and must be treated as such, to achieve optimal health, and to support in self realization, and transformation.


Richie also manages an organic Hazelnut orchard in Hillsborough, NJ, and Leads yoga classes and events on the farm. His life is given to supporting others in transformation to higher states of wellness and consciousness, where real freedom can be attained.

Kyrie Christnie fell in love with yoga from the moment she experienced the palpable shift from the constant chattering mind into the sweet sensation of “feeling.” 

She loves to laugh and says it’s the best medicine, in addition to yoga and the universal language of music. 

Kyrie attended Berklee College of Music, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Music, graduating with honors in 2008.
She received her 200 hour yoga teaching certification from the Prancing Peacock in 2015 and completed a 100 hour certification in Yin yoga in 2016. Following this, she participated in a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Soul in Princeton Junction in 2017.

Kyrie is passionate about the healing power of yoga, music, community, and bringing joy to many different types of people from all cultures and walks of life.

Nora Lopez

Being a beginner yoga student at over 60 years old, I was interested in a class that could help me in my flexibility and stress issues. I have back problems issues and have taken other yoga classes in which movements were done too quickly for me to stay with the rest of the class, resulting in hurting myself. Through Richie’s “no harm classes” my stretching and flexibility has improved tremendously as well as helping me lower my stress levels. Once I am done with a class I feel like a new person! Thanks Richie...
"Richie's Nature to Nurture workshop is great! His grounded instruction and knowledge is well- balanced with his playfulness. I learn so much about classic yogic teachings from his classes. In addition, being witness to his own growth and journey leaves me confident that he would be a competent and compassionate guide for anyone who wants to live their best life."
