Shira Turkl-Rubin

Shira Turkl-Rubin started Soul Flyte from scratch. Her knowledge of yoga, fitness, digestive health, body awareness, meditation and nutrition lead her here to this very moment when she decided to open her own studio in a bustling town filled with curious, open minded people. Shira is an E-RYT 200 and 500 hour certified yoga instructor with specialties in AntiGravity®, restorative, kids, digestive yoga, vinyasa and hatha. The market in Nyack is ripe for change and AntiGravity® yoga and fitness has the ability to create excitement and buzz that will keep you flying high for days after class. Shira has used the AntiGravity® technique to rehabilitate her neck as well as her belly. She has suffered from ulcerative colitis since 2007 and the act of tipping herself upside down daily - without the pressure on her neck of a headstand or regular handstand - has brought her major relief. Shira is more then excited to share this new technique with Rockland County.

Jenevieve Louise


Jenevieve discovered the magic of yoga, witnessing its ability to transform and heal. In her journey as a 200-hr RYT & Certified AntiGravity® teacher, she fell in love with the benefits of going upside down. She believes yoga is for everyone at any stage of life and wants to share the freedom of inversion therapy that the AntiGravity® hammocks allow. As an Esthetician, she can attest to the anti-aging benefits that inverting has on the skin, refreshing the circulatory system for a glowing complexion. Her classes take a creative approach in guiding students to connect to their breath to help awaken and celebrate life. Jenevieve enjoys cultivating a higher level of self confidence and personal wellness with her students, and encourages them to take an interest in their bodies and minds as a long term investment in their health and well being.

Ruth Samuel

Ruth's love for yoga goes back many years, before yoga was as popular as it is today. She taught Hatha yoga to adults who were trying to reduce their stress levels. The practice of yoga became a life's journey for her. Ruth is also a psychotherapist in private practice in New Jersey and Manhattan. Her style of psychotherapy fits very well with the philosophy of presence and connecting breath with mind body awareness. When she became certified as an AntiGravity® yoga/fitness instructor she knew that this was the perfect fit and realized that this practice was the road to her recovery from neck injuries and overstretched muscles. The act of inverting with zero compression on her spine re-calibrates her body, releases happy hormones and makes her feel renewed and refreshed each time!

Join her for a relaxing, restorative class where you'll "hang out" and de-stress together!
