I am an imperfect human being. Perfect in my imperfections, beautiful in my own quirky way. My practice of yoga over the past 20+ years has given me the strength and ability to embrace all aspects of myself. Yoga has given me the freedom to be authentically who I am in each moment; with the only requirement being that I am mindful. So this is what I work on - being mindful. Instead of trying to fix myself, or trying to be perfect, I simply do my very best in each moment, each day, each week, and each year, to be mindful. My interest is in self-awareness rather than self-improvement. From this place of presence, the parts of me that I admire can shine and the parts of me that aren’t so sparkly have their place too. I believe, my (and everyone’s) true self is pure loving-kindness. All of the practice, training and teaching that I engage in is to this end - to be free to be my authentic self and support others in finding this same freedom. Heading in the direction of being totally free, aware of our true selves in each moment, pure loving-kindness. This is what I have to share in my classes - my imperfect self, my shiny self, and my dedication to working with and exploring all aspects of yoga. I am a thoughtful, knowledgeable, kind and sometimes funny teacher. I am dedicated to offering others the countless benefits of yoga that I enjoy; it is my life’s work and my honor to share the practice of yoga with you.

I do the work that I do because I believe that we are each the social architects of our society. So we can manifest whatever it is we choose and in fact, we do. I see choice as the only force in the universe. I am an artist and though my work is only occasionally in tangible form, my life is my art. The way I walk, talk, move and breathe is my expression. I believe in living in possibility, and want to prove to my kids that anything is possible, even world peace. Anything is possible. I believe that we are moving towards oneness. I work to unify where there is division. I work selfishly to expand my own definition of self till I can act selfishly and towards the good of the universe simultaneously knowing that they are one in the same. In seeking unity I work to counter-measure the us vs. them paradigm. I do all of this as a yoga teacher at Mudita, as creator of DAY 1, on the board of Wild Earth and the Center for Creative Education, as a part of O+, working at the Kingston Farmer’s Market, as a City of Kingston Art Commissioner, just as a human being working in my community and especially as a father.

Yoga has been a significant part of my life for the past 27 years. I began studying with Woodstock yoga teacher, Marsha Albert, just before I became pregnant with my first son. It was truly my good fortune to begin the yoga journey with such a wise practitioner and the days of being in her simple studio in the woods left me with the life-long impression that yoga is a deeply personal and interior journey. After Marsha left the area, I took classes from many fine teachers in the Hudson Valley, but it wasn’t until five years ago that I again found “my teacher” in Shawn Harrison at Mudita. As soon as I walked into her studio I felt the connection between teacher and student that I believe is essential for transformation. In March of 2016, I completed my 200-hour teacher training with Shawn. Once again, I thank my good fortune for having this opportunity to train with a teacher of consequence.  With Shawn’s guidance, I began the process of learning how to move away from my habit of intellectualizing and into the realm of intuition, emotion, imagination, and, yes, even confusion—yet, I believe, through regular practice, and over time, I have been moving closer towards peace.  It is my hope, as a yoga teacher, to help my students begin their own journey, or continue on their journey—finding joy and love and peace through asana, breath, meditation, and spiritual readings.

Randy uncovered his deep connection to the yoga practice here at Mudita. Early in this discovery his meditation practice was sparked by being with Babaji and receiving his instruction and guidance. Both of these led Randy to fully embrace the journey of yoga teaching. It is a beautiful connection to the work that Randy has been engaged in as a music teacher at Rondout Valley, exploring the breath and the effect it has on the mind and body. Randy began his musical training twenty four years ago and through this training has observed the power of the breath not only in music but in life. He explores the connection between the breath, body and mind to his own practice and shares it in each of his classes. Randy's vibrant chanting welcomes beginners and those with experience to be present and mindful, using the yoga postures as a clear path towards happiness and peace.

Susan Silverstream has been studying and practicing Yoga for over 30 years and teaching for 20. In her very first Yoga class, at the age of 15, the experience of breathing, stretching and moving in a sacred manner, chanting mantra and meditating brought to her a feeling of "Coming Home" to her body, to herself, to Yoga. Studying and practicing steadily for many years, Susan was profoundly moved by the positive effects and benefits of Yoga in her own life and knew this was a gift she wanted bring to others. She is honored to have studied directly with many great Teachers and Yoga Masters, including Swami Satchitananda, (founder of Integral Yoga), Yogi Bhajan (Mahan Tantric Kundalini Yoga and founder of the 3HO/ Happy, Healthy, Holy Organization) and Sri Karunamayi (Mediation Master and teacher of Yogic Song and Chant). Susan teaches people of all ages and abilities and is continually inspired, witnessing the growth, change and wellbeing students experience through the ancient and ever evolving Art and exercise of Yoga. She learns as much from her students as they do from her. In teaching Yoga, she cultivates an attitude of reverence for each being, bringing an open heart and mind, a sense of joy, humor and compassion to her teaching. A special affinity and love for teaching children led Susan to create some of the first Children's Yoga Programs in the Hudson Valley.

She holds a degree in Waldorf Education (Early Childhood) and is a Certified Radiant Child Yoga Instructor. Susan is also an artist, musician and healer and brings these skills and gifts to her teaching. Her classes have been described as at once relaxing and invigorating, challenging and accessible, peaceful and uplifting. She teaches at Yoga, Healing and Learning Centers, schools and colleges, conferences and Arts festivals throughout the U.S. and Canada. Susan feels aligned with the wise words of Yogi and World Teacher, Sri Aurobindo in his declaration that "All Life is Yoga." She is dedicated to bringing this unifying gift of harmony and balance and joy into the lives of All Beings! She feels honored and blessed to be part of the wonderful teaching staff at Mudita, sharing in the Center's vision and welcoming mission to make Yoga available to everyone!
