Doris Farmer, the creator of Heart to Heart Yoga & Healing is an Occupational Therapist, Certified Yoga Instructor since 1996 and the former owner of Southport Fitness Center and the Cardio P.A.C.E. (Progressive Aerobic Circuit Exercise) Center in Elmira, NY.
Doris discovered early in her life that teaching is her gift and that yoga is her passion. Her way of teaching is gentle, informative, and filled with kindness and love. She guides you inward to notice what is present for you in the moment, and encourages you to honor your strengths and limitations with a compassionate heart. She teaches with affirmations and the belief that we can all learn together to cultivate self-awareness, mindfulness, and conscious communication for the benefit of all beings. She demonstrates that with continued practice you develop greater strength, flexibility, mental concentration, and the ability to allow your own inner body’s wisdom to guide you. Doris teaches a variety of yoga classes for the beginner to advanced student including gentle & restorative yoga, chair yoga, and moderate to vigorous yoga classes. 

Amani Vlasic was introduced to yoga shortly after recuperating from breast cancer surgery. She believes that while modern medicine healed what was wrong with her body, yoga focused on what was right. After eight years of practicing yoga she decided to further her knowledge by completing Kripalu’s 200 hour yoga teacher training in July of 2015. Her passion is giving to the community and believes that by sharing her love for yoga she can empower others to love and accept themselves just as they are. Amani will offer Beginners, Gentle and Moderate yoga classes. She is the previous owner of Cappy’s and is a proud mother of one son.
